Mine does the same thing. I lift up the top part (where the printed sheets emerge) wait a second or two and then shut it. The warm-up noise usually stops right away and it will start printing. No idea why this happens though!

I have a Minolta Di351f printer that keeps failing to send scanned documents over FTP. After several restarts it eventually comes back to normal and sends the documents properly again. Is there anything I...


This is somewhat common on these aging machines. The NIC card in your Pi3502 print controller is going bad. It is a common symptom when this happens that print jobs and or scanning jobs take forever to print/send or will stop altogether. The only fix is to try and find another NIC card for your Pi3502 Print Controller. But this can be risky as even another NIC may not work or work for very long as they are getting to be about 8 years old now. I have had to upgrade a few of my customers from the Di251/351 because of this issue.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Printing - print job arives @ printer no output


Sounds like a driver problem. Some printers require eoj (end of job) character & will wait forever.
Do a test print (search internet on how to print status page- usually button press combo). If you get a printout, you know the print engine is good.
If the printer is able to parse text, then try sending an ascii test file & see if anything prints. This will tell you whether it's a comm issue or rendering issue.

It sounds like data is being received by the printer from an outside source.
Try disconnecting the printer from the computer system so it is a free standing printer. Power the printer ON and put in ONLINE if you do not get strange characters printing the print job is definitely from the computer system some place.

If you do not get the print jobs printing when the printer is disconnected from the computer system, it could be that the print jobs are being sent from the wrong driver or print queue on the system, you may need to try to identify who is sending the rogue print jobs.

Zebra printer 140xilll - Too many print jobs?


It does sound like you have a memory overload when you send the 2nd print job. Each label is getting sent to the printer and filling up the memory. Make sure you are using the printer resident fonts and not a regular windows font. The windows fonts get sent down as graphics and take up memory. What zebra is saying to do is store the format of the label in the printer memory and then just send down the information that changes. For example if you were printing a UPS label the basic format of the label is the same but things such as the addresses and tracking # would change.

1320 not printing all the time


Your USB cord may be too long, or you have too many USB devices running. Try removing any other USB device, except the printer and do a test print.

Ram disk


Stangowner, In this case, the print job is too large for the available printer memory. Your choices are one of the following: Press to clear the message, cancel the current print job, and conduct the next print job, if any. · Press Cancel to cancel the current print job. · Press Menu to open the Stored Print and delete the current job. To avoid this error in the future, do the following: · Reduce the number of print pages such as splitting the print data. · Increase free memory space by deleting unnecessary data in the RAM disk. As for the RAM disk: When you send a job to the printer, you can specify in the driver that you want the printer to hold the job in memory. When you are ready to print the job, you must go to the printer and use the operator panel menus to identify which job in the memory you want to print. You can use this function to print a confidential job (Secure Print), or verify one copy before printing additional copies (Proof Print). NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you turn off the printer. (This is the RAM disk) NOTE: Print and Hold functions require a minimum of 320 MB available printer memory. Also, you need to configure the RAM disk settings on either the OPERATOR PANEL OR THE PRINTER DRIVER. NOTE: Depending on the documents, its job may be too big for the available memory. In this case, an error occurs. Take this link and print it out. It will help you later when you get "other" error messages. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3100cn/en/UG/section19.html And here's a link for more "operational" situations. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3100cn/en/UG/section16.html#1087088 ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
