Windows 7: Samsung M2070 (new installation) Preparing-Print / Printer-Unavailable

Samsung M2070 (new installation) Preparing-Print / Printer-Unavailable

Hi everyone!!!

I have just installed a Samsung M2070 printer to my laptop Toshiba Satellite L500 (fully patched).

When I try to print the "Samsung Print Status" window shows up on the down-right with the following two (2) messages toggling constantly (translating from Greek)

1)"Preparing Print Job..." and
2)"Printer status Unavailable. Please check power status and power cable".

When printing an empty Word file (white sheet) or a .txt with little written on it, it completes the job without problem.

I connected it to another PC and it works normally.

I tried the following:
Fully uninstall (driver & Software), clear Temp and registry, reinstall (restarting all the way).

Any help would be more than welcome!!
Thank you!!

I've seen some devices that you have to install the software and driver BEFORE you connect them.
Try to update the driver and make it search on the printers disk.
