Question: I downloaded win 11 and since the no printer print when connected by USB, I can print wireless but all the printers do not have that capability. the printer shows it is ready, immediately when I press print I get a message that the document or image or any printing job cannot be done. I uninstalled in reinstalled drivers many times, switch to different usb ports take all other usb devices out with no avail. Can you please help? I do not want to roll back to win 10 as I have the beta version for more than 10 days and thus will have to do a clean install
Answer: This seems like a driver problem. If the full feature driver is not working properly then you can go with the basic driver. Install the printer manually using its basic driver.
Make sure you have selected the USB001, 002 or 003 port.

Switch your printer”s USB cable to another port of your computer. It should be detected properly after switching the USB port.Sometimes the USB driver doesn”t work properly, so it”s time to reinstall the USB drivers. Go to the device manager and uninstall all the USB drivers from there and reboot your computer. After rebooting, your printer should detect your printer properly. Do let me know the results after you”re done!!

Go to device manager then go to USB area and uninstall the “Printing Support” from USB. Then click on Action and choose the option “Scan for new hardware”, then try to print.

I tried the suggestion above; to uninstall printing support from the USB list in device manager, but still did not solve the problem. Please advise.
When I give a print command the computer says printing document but nothing prints, and the print dialogue box shows 0 document after few seconds.
