How to make wireless printer to work?

By sanwardak ·
My friend bought a HP laser jet pro cm1415nw wireless printer and now it does not work. I setup his wireless router and it work fine, and I install many times his printer via remote control, it will not print any page, it says printer offline, there is no option to make it online, but when I try to scan something it work via wireless, but it will not print. If I connect through usb connection then printer work fine. His OS is Windows 7.

And is the WiFi working correctly?

I've seen a similar issue with a WiFi Printer where the Router, WiFi Access Point had been scrambled by a Power Spike and stopped the WiFi working.

If that's the case you need to unplug the WiFi Access Point allow the capacitors to discharge and then plug it back in. Allow about 10 seconds of it being unplugged and unplug the Power Lead Do Not just turn it off at any switch unplug the power lead.
