Mine was a loose connection into the back of the printer from the usb cable. Just pushed it fully in.
Another time i had to turn on the printer and then restart the pc as the pc had to have the printer already on to recognise it.
Failing that,try reinstalling the printer driver.

Have you tried what mrwoowoo suggests and checked the connections.

Go to Control Panel\ Administrative tools\Services\Print Spooler

Is it running or not, you can also check what it says in the Event viewer, right click on errors
