What operating system are you using?
Did the printer ever worked?

a) Are you able to print from the command prompt?
start/run then type cmd <enter>
at the command prompt type:
dir > ltp1 then press enter , see if you able to print.

b) Are you able to print from notepad?

c) Check device manger and make sure that there are no bangs (? or !) under the "Ports" especially the printer port.

d) Is the printer port (LPT1) set to ECP or EPP?

e) have you tried to uninstall/reinstall the printer drivers?

f) Post results.
