Nothing in the event logs is giving me any help.
Just thought I'd ask.
This is a big problem for this specific user.

Are you using USB ports in the front or the back?
Make sure you have the latest Drivers and Firmware for the printer

Run this fixit first then check. It works for windows 7

Also when you are not able to print check whether print spooler service is stopped. To  check print spooler service click start and type services.msc.

Print spooler service should be set to automatic and started.
