In general, the printer is relatively new and the printer software is also relatively new - the printer should be compatible with your Lenovo Windows 10 computer.

 

If you have not done so, consider updating the printer Firmware.

 

See Section:  Print a Printer Status Report
 
and / or
 

Example

Use Embedded Web Server (EWS) to find your printer's Firmware version

 

Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar

Tab Tools > Printer Information > Firmware Version

 

Example - EWS - Extract the firmware version from the full firmware version information.

Firmware VersionMANHHIPP1N001.2010A.00

 

In necessary, that is, your printer firmware is outdated, check / update the firmware

=====================================================================

 

If you have not done so, run Windows Updates on your new computer.

If any updates are installed, Restart the computer and log in.

Check again - when Windows Updates are all installed, it is time to download-save-install the printer software.

After the printer software installs, Restart the computer and log in.

 

What else?

 

Adobe Reader DC – Needed Whether You Use It or Not

If you have not done so,

Reinstall / Update your PDF Reader (Adobe Reader DC /Optional  Foxit Reader)

HINT:  Watch out for and UNCHECK unwanted extra software

 

NOTE:  Adobe Reader DC software should be installed even if you do not normally open / view / print PDF files directly from the Adobe Reader DC software.
