Resetting power to the printer forces the printer to reset stored values in the firmware. A power reset can help when the printer is not accepting communication from the Mac.
- The users have to make sure that the printer is idle, not making any sounds, before continuing.
- After that with the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
- Now they have to unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
- Now the users have to wait at least 60 seconds.
- After that again plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
- Now they are required to reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
- If the printer does not turn on by itself, press the Power button to turn it on.
- The users are required to try printing again and note what happens.
- If the printer prints, then they can stop troubleshooting.

Step 3: Remove multiple printers from the printer list
Now it’s time to check for multiple devices in the Printers list, and then remove any extra entries other than one in idle status.
- Search the Mac for Print, and then click Print & Fax, Print & Scan, or Printers & Scannersin the list of results.
- Find the printer names that match the user’s printer from the list of devices.
- If the users see multiple printer queues for the same printer, remove all extra printers by selecting them one at a time, and then clicking the minus button at the bottom of the list. Leave one ‘idle’ printer in the list that matches your printer if available and use this printer as the Default printer.
