No this is not just a problem with windows 8.1. I have windows 10 with a brand new laptop and  brand new printer and I can't print anything because the printer is offline again. This is such an inconvienence. I can't unistall and reinstall every time I need to print. I work from home and I need my printer.

Hi,

 

I did see the contact details you mention but as the telephone numbers you give are non-geographic that means that it will cost me money to call them and I feel I shouldn't have to pay any more for something I have only just bought !.

 

Surely someone else has come across this problem on Windows 8.x

I have only got  Windows 8.1 wireless PC's (my Windows 7 PC is wired) so I assume that it is a specific Win 8.1 problem. Is there anyone reading this could you confirm that you have the same problem.

 

As you can probably tell I am not a happy customer.

This printer is the worst.  It will not work with any Windows 10 computers we have.  But works fine with all of our ipads and mac and iphones....ridiculous

 

Save your money do not buy this printer its a headache to deal with
