is it a network printer or connected via USB, are you using the correct driver, what driver are you currently using, PS or PCL.

to be sure, test it on another network port.
if you can connect it to usb, you can test this way too if it's ok

can you connect to it via the IP address in your browser, if you cant that maybe the issue, if you can try changing the driver.
let me ask a stupid question here,  is the correct paper size set in the paper trays?
