Question about Xerox FaxCentre F12 Laser Printer

Xerox F12 FAx Machine

On the display screen is:

Please Wait.....

There isn't anything printer at this time. I have cycled the power on the printer, made sur ethe connections were fine, changed out the drum ( worn out), I have made sure the parts were in there really good.

Someone was sending a fax, the fax was sent successfully but when this display came up about printing the transmission of this job this is where everything stopped.

Please advise

    This did not resolve the issue, when trying to clear the msg or trying to print.

    This is what has been done so far:

    1. Cycling the power

    2. Unplugged the power for 30 minutes

    3. Cycling the power then holding down the start button which placed this into Diag, mode, but still not being able to print anything out.

    Please let me know of any other options you may think of

Xerox workcentre 3325: What do you do when you are having lines on copies when using the top feed?


Don't rush things. If you don't know how a laser printer functions, please don't touch anything. Let someone with knowledge clean the machine. Rubbing the wrong roller, can damage the printer bend repair.

Only clean the parts you are allowed to clean. Like removing dust on places outside the printing area.

Hi, I have a Fuji Xerox 3200MFP. I can fax with no problem, scan with no problem. But I can not print or copy - anything that requires printing. The Status Window gives me "Printing... Please...

Most likely it's the driver. Try going to the Fuji website and see what drivers are available. It's possible that the driver your using isn't designed to work with your operating system (such as designed for Windows XP and your now using Windows 10, etc.)

The LCD screen keep displaying "Printing" but

I have seen this so many times I thought I would post an answer on this so you can repair your Brother MFC series machine that says printing and will not function. Using this procedure will save you from having to call out a service technician. Any time your machine says "printing" and will not do anything simply turn off the power. Now hold down the red clear/stop button WHILE turning the power back on. Continue holding the clear key for a few seconds then release. Your "printing" message should be gone and your machine should be back at the ready screen.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya!

Screen reads "printing...please wait"

If this machine has memory boards on the back, turn off the machine and take the boards out.
turn on the machine, and reinsert the memory boards.
Sometimes these boards lock up the machine.
If this does not work, the fuser may be the problem.

Xerox phaser 6180 mfp error code 133-290

Before attempting to resolve the error 133. -290, print a copy of the configuration report on the copier / fax. Use the navigation on the front panel to access the configuration menu to get the impression. Review printing to make sure it understands the network settings. This is a protection against configuration settings being lost when you troubleshoot.
Clearing Memory reset the memory of the Xerox Phaser 6180MFP, Dell 3110cn or Dell Machine 3115cn to erase the stored contents and eliminate corrupted data. Disconnect the analog line and power cord from the printer. Wait at least 10 minutes. Then reconnect the analog line and the power cord. As the machine starts, press the "All Clear" "Stop" buttons to prevent automatic printing of the status page. Check the error display panel 133 to 290 times the machine is fully initialized.
