Your TCP/IP port may be the issue.
Step 1) Go to Devices and printer > right click the printer and select Printer Properties >Ports Tab > delete the TCP/IP port you have selected for the printer.
( Note: you have to check a different port then click apply then highlight the port you want to delete and click the delete button.)
Step 2) On the Ports Tab >click the Add Port button > add port wizard will come up
Select Standard TCP/IP port then click the New Port… button. Type in the IP address of the printer.
Let it search for the printer. It will not find it because the printer will not respond to its request.
Then select Standard- Generic Network Card. Click next and finish.
Step 3) Make sure the port you have created is selected, Click apply and OK and reboot your PC. 
Step 4) Once you have rebooted the PC try and print to the printer.

The issue I had with the printer was resolved with speed and professionalism.

It was strange what my problem was but support was quick to isolate it with a few pics sent to them. Very happy with the support.

We ended up not getting the piece repaired due to the cost but support was great about getting back to me which I appreciate.
