Some recent postings say that reinstalling the printer cures this problem.

Pending reinstalling, if you have urgent printing, Export as PDF and print from your PDF utility.

Be sure to get the new driver from the manufacturer's web site - there are reports that the problem is caused by W10 having? installing? the wrong driver.

See the other posts about printing - there are at least two on the first page!
