This task includes the following troubleshooting procedures to try when you submit a print request to a printer and nothing prints:
Check the hardware (How to Check the Printer Hardware).
Check the network (How To Check the Printer Network Connections).
Check the LP print service basic functions (How to Check the Basic Functions of the LP Print Service).
Check printing from a print client to a print server (How to Check Printing From a Print Client to a Print Server).
Try the first three procedures in the order in which they are listed, before going to the print client/server section. However, if the banner page prints, but nothing else does, turn to the instructions under How to Troubleshoot Incorrect Output.
