Networked printer, scanner problem

  recap 14:45 30 Oct 03

I have come across a little bit of a puzzling situation. We have a networked printer (HP A3 pritner on W2K & Server). The printer is only accessable to two client machines. There is a scanner (Epson 1200 perfection) that is not networked on a totally seperate client machine.

The client with the scanner loaded on their machine started using it. Within a minute of this one of the clients with the printer tried to print. There was no error messages coming up but the pritner just would not work. Once the scanner had stopped being used the printer started printing.

This is very strange, anybody any explantion as to why this would happen?
