Question about Lexmark E232 Laser Printer

5 Answers

When printing large documents , it goes on pause after two pages

- and then, when I click 'resume printing', it reprints the same two pages, and then the pause button comes back on.
I get this problem printing pdf files and Finale documents. As I'm a composer and often need to print 90-page two-sided documents, this is a real problem.
The pause light comes on prematurely often even when I'm just printing on one side of the page
I have a new iMac, now at 10.5, but the printer has been behaving splendidly until quite recently.

    Thank you very much.
    I'm sure that's the solution - but I tried sanding
    the rollers, and now either the paper jams, or the printer indicates that I'm out of paper. I guess those rollers have done their time. I hope it's easy to find replacements. Thanks.

  • Have you tried with a different computer altogether?
  • When you tried updating the drivers and all, did you first uninstall the printer, and uninstall the print driver from the print server settings in Windows?
  • Did you clean it with alcohol? Is that why squeaky clean?
  • Is a certain print job freezing up each time? then Possibly a really large document being sent to print spooler that is in turn seemingly freezing everything up
  • What application are you printing from when the problem occurs? mostly large pdf print file , can frozen up the print spool by trying to print a somewhat sizeable PDF document from Adobe Acrobat. Adobe Reader has caused some issues like that in the past. Sure enough, dont try to print long PDF files from within Reader, youll have no other issues.
hope this helps.

    The printer might not have enough memory to print large documents. If this is the case, increase the available virtual memory,

You need to empty the printer cue.

    You need to empty the printer cue, that is the reason why the printer is printing same documents times and times again.

    Unplug printer usb, and unplug printer power cable, then restart computer, and access the printer cue to clean it.

    To get to printer cue you go to control panel>>installed printers>>then double click on your printer.

    There you will find the list of documents in cue, select all and chose purge printer cue.

    Reconnect the printer back when finished.

. There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.

Power went off when I tried to print


Would be helpful to know which operating system you are using and whether there where any warning light flashing. For starters review the following solutions.
Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs

Inner Cover was open when you started printing.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer. The printer resumes printing.

Inner Cover was opened while printing is in progress.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer.

A page of print data being sent at the time of the error will be erased, so print that page again.

The printer has been printing continuously over a long period.

If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head may overheat. To protect the Print Head, the printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.

In this case, interrupt your print session at a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

Additionally, if the printer has been printing graphics or photos with intense colors continuously over a period of time, the printer may stop printing to protect the Print Head. In this case, printing will not resume automatically. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

i_expl.gif Caution

The Print Head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the printer. Never touch the Print Head or nearby components.

Out of paper.

Make sure that paper is loaded in the selected paper source.

Reload paper if no paper is found in the selected paper source (Auto Sheet Feeder or the Cassette).

If the same paper is loaded in the other paper source, you can switch the paper source with the Paper Feed Switch or the printer driver to continue printing.

If both paper sources have run out of paper, confirm the selected paper source and load paper there.

Printing documents with plenty of photographs or illustrations.

When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer or the computer is processing data. Printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to process, during which the printer may appear to have stopped operating.

In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the printer may pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.

i_note.gif Note

If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing may pause to allow the ink to dry.

I was printing a downloaded document on my HP C5180 printer that contained 144 pages. The printer started at page 144 and stopped at page 44. How do I get it to print the remaining pages without reprinting...


You don't specify from which application are you printing, or even what operating system are we talking about.
If it's Windows, then you need to open your document, hit Ctrl+P or choose File->Print from the menu, and in the Print dialog that appears specify "1 - 44" in the Pages field. Finally confirm by clicking OK.

Please come back and leave a rating/testimonial if helped.

Printer keeps on feeding paper and prints illegible material -- if I turn off and on again it will continue feeding same --- how can I correct this problem which has occurred before and stops and resumes...


I assume you use windows XP and have you printer connected to you computer directly.
First turn off the printer, then go in your printers manager and pause the printer you have problem with it.
Delete all documents still in the printers queue. When deleted, put back on the printer, unpause the printer and print a test page (with the printer's property page on, you should have a test page button), if they dont delete, restart the computer, they shoul not be ther after rebooting.
If the test page goes well, maybe the document is corruped and need some fixing (some big picture do this problem on printers) check with other documents if they print well.
If it goes wrong again, do all the same thing again but beffore reprint, download and install the last version of the driver for you printer/OS.

Pause/printer rest between pages


Hi nurse_boop (Lainey), You can try changing some of the printer settings. Assuming you're using Windows, go to Start, Printers and Faxes, and right click on your printer, choose Properties: 1. Make sure that you disable printer pooling; 2. Check/tick, print directly to the printer; 3. Check/tick, Printer is Always Available. Please keep in mind that large file sizes, images and deep colors adds to the slowdown and pauses of printers. Hardware wise, large documents requires more memory both on the printer server PC and the printer itself. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
