There could be a few possible reasons why your laptop won’t let you print. First, make sure that the printer is properly connected to your laptop either through a wired or wireless connection. If it is, then check to make sure that the printer driver is up to date and installed correctly on your laptop. Additionally, you should check that the printer has enough toner or ink and that there are no paper jams. Finally, if you’re still having trouble printing, try restarting both your laptop and the printer.

Troubleshooting Mac Printing Issues with PDFs

To ensure that our Mac and printer are connected correctly, please try resetting the print system by going to Finder> Apple Menu > System Preferences > Printers & Scanners, then Control + Click in the left side printer list and select Reset Print System. Once you’ve done this, re-add your preferred printer by going to Finder> Apple Menu > System Preferences > Printers & Scanners and selecting Add from the list.

If you still cannot print PDFs after resetting the print system, it is possible that there is an issue with either your printer or with the PDF file itself.

You can also check if there are any firmware updates available for your printer in order to ensure compatibility with Macs.

Next, you’ll want to tap the Setup button, then select Network or Wireless Settings. From there, select the Wireless Setup Wizard option, and follow the steps to enter your network name and password. Once you’ve completed these steps, your printer should be able to connect to your Wi-Fi network and be ready for wireless printing.
