Excellent printer- could be better

Set up of the printer and associated functions was very easy and the e print functionality works a dream using OSX Yosemite - BUT Occasionally the scanning function drops out meaning that it is impossible to scan. Solved by deleting printer, restarting then reinstalling the printer. Most annoying. Get that right and I'd give it a 5

I was able to set this up without help, very clear instructructions. I connected pc with usb, tablet and smart phone without any trouble.Being a pensioner I sometimes have trouble with the newer technology but not this. Brilliant photos.

I need to be able to print more than 25 pages at one time and this printer was suppose to do just that. It stalls and wastes paper instead! I print hand outs for my university courses and it will print half the slides and then it stops stating it can't print anymore. Very frustrating when trying to get organised for the following day. Plus not to mention wasting my printing paper and time. I end up having to print at the uni library before class.

So frustrated with my printer. Don't know how to connect to network even though wireless blue light is on. Can only print with usb so cannot print anything from tabletveven though I get msg that tells me my print has been submitted. Have waited 2 days and still not printed. Worst printer ever bought.Doesn't do what it's supposed to. Very difficult to setup and still can't get the results I need. Where is the information I need to resolve my problems?
