A general rule of thumb is to verify your connections to your printer before installing a printer or if your having recurring issues of being unable to print.
The printer has a power connector and, depending on what interface, a USB, Serial, or Parallel connection. Check all these connections before proceeding with an install or uninstalling a printer.
Another common issue is that your printer may be installed on the incorrect port. You can check this by opening up Devices and Printers (or Printers and faxes if you are using WindowsXP), right clicking on your printer, selecting Printer properties (or Properties if you are using WindowsXP), and clicking on the Ports tab. Try selecting several different ports (hint: if it is a USB printer, try USB001, USB002, USB003, and so on. if it is serial try COM1, COM2, COM3, and so on. If it is parallel try LPT1, LPT2, LPT3 and so on.)
