Question about Brother Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Hello. Printer is DCP-7020. I can print ONE job. Any jobs I attempt to print after that, and the printer goes into PAUSED status, even though it is actually NOT paused. It then does not come out of PAUSE until I delete the job in queue. I cannot RESUME until the jobs have been deleted, so nothing can get printed. ??? Thanks.

How do I take Canon imageCLASS D320 All-In-One Laser Printer off from "paused" status?


On the printer properties on the computer there will be a paused option (Normally marked as "Pause Printing") in the printer drop down menu on the Printer Queue screen. Click this to remove the tick next to it and it should start printing again.

Key is flashing. Internet blue light is on. Printer gets signal for print job but won't print until I USB connect it to my Macbook OS 10.6.


Hi,

Follow the steps below to resolve the issue

The print queue and Dock printer icon
When you start a print job, you will see your printer icon appear in your Dock. Click the Printer icon to open the print queue, which is a list of print jobs that are printing, on hold, or paused. The print queue will also display messages sent from the printer.
You can alternatively open the print queue from the Print & Fax pane of System Preferences.

printer%20queue.png In the Print Queue toolbar you have these buttons:

  1. Delete - Deletes the selected print job.
  2. Hold / Resume - Will hold / resume the selected print job.

My print job won't print in color. even when I select "color" on the "options" menu of PowerPoint.


The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

When I try to print from my PC the printer doesn't respond at all even though the cable is connected on both ends and the printer is turned on. Worked fine the day before.


I assume you are using a PC- All printers have a list of pending jobs refered to as the print "queue"- it should open if you double click on the default ptinter icon in the printer list- it sounds to me like your print Queue has been paused somehow and all the print jobs are being "held" until you tell the queue to restart printing

I am not able to print. 10 print jobs will just sit there nd not print. I have gone through troubleshooting and nothing helps. Now I have tried to cancel all print jobs and 1 is hung up in the deleting...


Hi,

Please restart your computer after deleting all print jobs. after the computer turns on, please check the status of the printer in "Printers" in the control panel - it should be active and not paused. please check you use the correct driver for the printer when you print. If any of those didn't help - please uninstall the driver and install it again. it should work.

Good Luck,

Trying to print, but Status Paused is showing


Hi

Thanks for using FIxYa. Please turn the printer off and then cancel all the print queues pending in the bottom toolbar by double clicking on the printer logo if you want to delete all the pending printing files. Now turn the printer on. If you do not want to cancel all the printing jobs then you can double click on the printer logo showing in the right side of the bottom tool bar and then right click on the printing jobs pending for printings then click on restart printing. Issue will be resolved and it will not show ‘paused status’.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Brother 7020 printer "fuser error"


The fuser has failed and needs to be replaced. If it is still under warranty Brother may cover it. If not you will have to take it to a Brother Authorized service center. It may be possible to find a used one on Ebay, even if its just for parts. Some of these smaller machines require extensive dissassembly to replace the fuser and shouldn't be attempted by a novice.
