Cannot print to two different printers in Win8.1 Enterpris

    Cannot print to two different printers in Win8.1 Enterpris


    I was able to print to my network-attached Brother 2070N and 3045CN laser printers until recently. Driver have been loaded, printers are discovered and added to the client, but every time I try to print I receive the message "Printer not ready". All of the Windows 7 clients can print to these 2 printers, it's just my 64bit Win8.1 Enterprise computer that cannot. If I can't get this resolved soon, I'll have to go back to Win7.

    Does anyone have a fix for the "Printer not ready" issue? Thanks in advance!

    I had to re-install both printers for my Win 8.1 PC to be able to print again. I deleted all printers in device manager, then re-installed "from scratch" and installed new drivers and the printers work again. I wish I knew what broke them in the 1st place...
