Print job set to print 33 pages I don't want - cannot cancel!

Printer is trying to print 33 pages of a site I had been on - I do not want these pages printed - cannot find a way for it to cancel... No printer icon exists in bottom right corner - as was suggested - only can unplug my printer. How do I get it to stop trying to print these pages???
Thank You.

There is an icon in the lower right corner of your screen. It looks like a printer. Double click on that icon then right click on the print job then click no cancel. It should hang there are refuse to disappear. what you do after this is to turn off your printer then turn it back on then restart your computer. It should be gone after that.

    Click start then control panel then printers and faxes. Double click on your printer there to see if there are any print jobs.

Why is the light flashing on the right side


If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:

• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing.
• The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.


If it's Busy:
• Wait for the message to clear.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.


If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages:
• Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the
printing stops.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel printing.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

I'm printing labels on my printer. After each run, the printer prints out an hp advertisement page for buying supplies, etc. Almost like a test page. How can I delete this annoying and wasteful...


Try this:
But first print a configuration report.(contain IP address)
Configuration Report
Release GO after LED begins blinking.
Now:
Reset the factory default settings (cold reset)
Turning on the printer while pressing the GO and CANCEL JOB buttons restores the factory default settings.
1 Turn off the printer.
2 Press and hold the GO and CANCEL JOB buttons.
3 Turn the printer on and continue to press and hold the buttons until all three LEDs are blinking.
4 Release the buttons.

I've been using OKIDATE MICROLINE 320 PRINTER at work. I was printing something and I realized that I was printing the wrong page so to stop printing, I simply turned off the power and waited....


You would have to cancel the current print job from your computer for it to stop. Assuming you have access to a computer that is connected to that printer, you will have to find that printer by going to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Oki ML 320 then right click, select "See What's Printing" and cancel Current print job (I am also assuming you are using windows). I really hope this helps, if not add a comment clarifying your question, thanks.

My printer refuses to print. The Red Status light came on so I checked and found there was a paper jam - cleared that. Can get green light to come on if I press the job cancel button but still cannot get...


Perform a Factory Reset


Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer. Check that the front cover is closed.


Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.


Press the GO button 8 times. The Ready LED will flash briefly while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Ready LED will be lit.



Print a Test Print Page


Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times.

- If the Print Settings pages do not print, check for alarm lights on the printer. Clear the printer error before trying to print again.

- If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing from your computer. Verify the printer cable connects from the back of the computer directly to the printer. If the cable has become disconnected, loose, or connects through another device, the printer may not be able to print.

Check the Printer Driver Properties

Follow the instructions below based on the operating system installed on your computer.

Windows 7:

Click on the Windows icon => Control Panel => View Devices and Printers.


Right mouse click the Brother printer. Left click See What's Printing. The print queue will open. If print jobs are listed in the printer queue, click Printer (at the top of the window) and click Cancel All Documents to delete the pending print jobs. Click Yes to confirm deleting the print jobs.

Click Printer at the top of the window again. Make sure that Pause Printing and Use Printer Offline are not check marked. If either setting is marked, click on the check mark to remove it.


Click Properties from this Printer menu list.


Click the Ports tab. Verify the correct port is selected (LPT1 is using a parallel cable and USB is using a USB cable). Remember to click Apply if you select another port.

Click the General tab and Print Test Page button. The Windows test page should now print.

- If the Windows test page prints, try printing from a program.
Windows Vista:

Click on the Windows icon => Control Panel => Printers or under Hardware and Sound click Printer.

Right mouse click the Brother printer. Select Run as administrator and left click Open. The print queue will open. If print jobs are listed in the printer queue, click Printer (at the top of the window) and click Cancel All Documents to delete the pending print jobs. Click Yes to confirm deleting the print jobs.

Click Printer at the top of the window again. Make sure that Pause Printing and Use Printer Offline are not check marked. If either setting is marked, click on the check mark to remove it.

While on a site (33 page long library book sale site) I must have inadvertently hit something that gave the command to print these 33 pages! I have now unplugged the printer because I do NOT want these...


i dont have a lexmark but i think all printers are generally the same. you should be able to open up the print box, usually by clicking (or right clicking) the icon on your screen (bottom bar) once opened, you should be able to cancel print jobs, by right clicking on the document name in the list and selecting cancel. like i say i dont have lexmark, so may not help.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

Last page of printing stops 3/4 through the page.


Try cleaning your heads with appropriate solution. Then, cancel all print jobs. Try again. If it does the same i would turn it off, inplug all the cables, replug all and turn on. Try again. If still no good, completely unistall printer then reinstall it. Try once more. Good luck
