OK this is as basic as tech goes but for some reason I can NOT get my new Brother HL-L2320D to work. I'm using Win Home 10 on an HP desktop and I've installed/uninstalled the drivers twice rebooted plugged unplugged powered on/off set the printer as my default etc etc. and nothing works! Here's the error message I get:

"The selected printer is not available or not installed correctly. Check your printer or try selecting another printer."

I googled the error message and there definitely seems to be an issue. I tried the fix the the print spooler issue but to no avail... help!

EDIT: here's someone else with the exact same problem online:

UPDATE: I finally got rid of the error message above as was able to preview the page upon printing but now when i hit the print button I get the message: "printer is in error state."
