"Printer not connected" error since Win 10 Update

I had no issues printing with my up mini until yesterday where it shows that its not connected although it is recognized by windows as you can see on the pictures:
uptoolbar

these are the updates:


The Up Studio shows the following error when I select USB to connect:

Error: Failed to Connect USB Printer (CTRL).
(3154.3154.3154.811.3117)

I have tried everything:

  1. uninstall the windows updates
  2. uninstalling the Up Studio Software and Drivers and reinstalling them

nothing seems to work.

Can you initialize the machine by the front button?

Yes that’s possible but unfortunately it doesn’t lead to a connection either.

There even is a Number shown on the top left but no connection as you can see in this picture:

Try this:

Which printer you have? If you have a hp printer then you can try to connect with the router. I have a hp printer also and at the time of connecting the printer with the router, it wanted a WPS pin. At first, I couldn’t find that but then I found the WPS pin on hp printer after searching many websites. Now everything is OK.

is that applicable to Up Mini 2 or just the Cetus (as its located in the cetus section, and this is the Up Mini 2 forum)?

I have this problem with win10 and my Upbox.

The printer can be seen for a while then the screen shows this:-

The settings and then search for printer probably won’t find it.
Unplugging and plugging back in the USB cable seems to bring it back for a while.
