With the proper drivers loaded (even the scanner package) I am unable to make the MP280 print. PCC sees it, it is listed when I do lsusb in a terminal, and when I print a test page, the GUI shows success, I see the number display on the printer flash as if it were receiving data, but nothing prints. The printer will do a copy from the printer itself. On scanning, similar problem as printing. I run the scanner program from the command line, and try to scan, the printer starts, then hangs. I have reinstalled the drivers and the scan program, tried configuring the printer through CUPS and PCC. No joy. Any suggestions?
I tried another USB cable, checked the power and ensured all the shipping strips were removed. Still no joy. All suggestions welcome.
