Samsung ml-n2165 won't print

Wireless printing is hard to setup unless you know what your doing. The best way is to setup a static ip for the printer. Then reserve that ip address on the router. Then the printer will always be in the "same spot it was last time" meaning the ip address has not changed. Then delete the printer and reinstall the printer drivers-- on all computers. Computers print to an ip address, if it changed then the computer cannot print to it, it doesnt know where to send the info. The router is designed to make your life easy in respect to assigning you an ip address each time you turn it on, but this can change if you have more computers on. For instance you turn on computer 1 then computer 2 then the printer, then computer one gets the 1st address then computer 2 gets the 2nd address and the printer get the 3rd address. Now here comes the problem if you install the printer now, all of the computers will send the data to the 3rd address. Then you turn off all of the computers and printer like most people do at night. Now you turn on the printer first because it was closes to the door and then just one computer. Then the printer gets the 1st address and the computer gets the 2nd address, but remember the computer still thinks the printer is in the 3rd address. It will not print. The router doesnt care who comes on first unless you tell it specifically if "this" device turns on then I will give it "this" address. The router does not know that a printer is attached to it just sees a piece of hardware.

Can't delete an abandoned print job now in print queue. It ran out of paper ages ago - now won't print (despite having paper) and won't delete or cancel that job. Won't print anything!

Disconnect fron the computer. Turn off printer and unplug from wall for at least 15 minutes. Plug back into wall and turn on. Do not connect to computer yet. See if printer cycles through self test and becomes ready. If if does, reconnect to computer. If job reappears and tries to print, you must clear the job from your computer print que.

Printer keeps printing blank pages non stop going

drop kick unit across room:)))) sorry just kidding I had the same problem with mine. If the computer is continually printing that means the printer is receiving print orders from your computer. Best thing is just disconnect the printer from the computer and turn the computer off and wait 30 seconds then turn on . This should clear the print cache then reconnect the printer. Make sure to only request one print at at a time.
if the printer continues to print blank pages check to see if you have the latest software driver for the printer installed on your computer. You can do this by going to the manufactures website and download the software its easy to do just follow the prompts and install! Hope this helpful!!!

I have the nec 870 for 10-years. Works great!!! Now it prinsts garble wihtout any print job. Turn it on. It prints garble. Help...

Turn your computer off.
Turn your printer on.
If it still prints garbled text, then it's time to responsibly recycle the printer, and buy a new one.

Try connecting the printer to another computer, to see if it prints correctly from that computer.

Cannot print unless I turn off computer and then reboot.

I'm not a big fan of Lexmark in general in part due to their software and drivers. For me this type of behavior from their printers/software became common about a year ago, the fix being to use the more generic Windows supplied printer drivers. I would suggest that you uninstall all software the printer installed and remove all of the printers print queue(s)including any associated with the fax function. Unplug the printer USB cable from the computer, reboot your PC and reinstall the printer from scratch using your original installatin CD.
