Question about HP OfficeJet 4215 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cannot get print operation stays on answering machine.

I stopped a print operation of an email half way through by pushing the cancel button. The printing stopped and printer was turned off. After turning on again it started printing old list from stop point. Again pressed cancel and now have answering maching on screen and cannot get back to doing any printing operations. Have shut off and unplugged but still have answering machine set up. Tried to do a copy operation and worked ok, but then went back to answering maching and will not accept a command to print from the computer. Sure would appreciate any help you can give me.

Turn off your printer. then you chose start option from your windows. and click printer and fax option from above of hlep and support switch. and you can chose that printer in which you faced problem. and open that printer option. then you will see pending list of your printer. on that list you select all and do right click on that list and click cancel option.after cancellation of all the pending document. you turn on your printer. right now you can print as per wish.

Is there another way to stop unwanted copies from being printed if the reset/stop button does not work?

If printing from your computer...yes. Go to the cancel print function on your computer and cancel the print. That will stop more copies being printed once you have hit cancel.

Otherwise you would need to switch the power off to the machine and remove any paper. Then turn it on again and play with the controls until you can clear the print memory back to zero.

Uninstall the machine. Reinstall the drivers for the machine and your problem should be solved....Remember to turn the power off on your printer and remove the USB or network cords. This should fix it!

Cancel printing is on and will not turn off after canceling when pushing the stop/exit button. i cannot print anything else. when i turn it off and unplug it then plug it back in for 1 min and turn it back...

You did not list your model but if it is an MFC series then try turning off the machine and then hold down the clear/stop button while turning the power back on. Continue holding the button for a few seconds. This procedure will clear whatever may be stuck in memory. This works on most Brother models but may not work on yours.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Cancelled a job and it stays in queue

Cancel all the documents in the print queue, (just do it whether they are actually deleted or not), press "cancel" on button the printer and restart your system and also the printer. If possible, please leave the printer switched off for few minutes and don't forget to use the "Power" button to turn if off or on. This will help your printer to restart new print job, all the jobs on the print queue will be deleted/cleared. Good luck, Thanks for using FixYa.

The procedure for stop copy is you press red and then machine ask you left or right pointer for yes or no.Is thath way did you stop copying?

If yes it may be machine system problem.

Cannot delete a print job

Microsoft has the help you need for this issue and I wont try to give you long and possibly misleading information on here.
It is a common problem but the answer is here

You need to refer to method "D" about half way down the page
Once you clear the print job check you dont have any extra printers installed as quite often happens in these situations. If you have then delete your extra printer installations.

I have an hp Laserjet 1012 printer and find that I do not possess any instructions for trouble shooting. My problem is that the printer persists in reprinting the same job given it several days ago and I...

Here is a link to the LJ1012. There are links for manuals, drivers, support forums, etc.

LaserJet 1012 Support

As to your question, here are the brief descriptions of the 2 lights and 2 buttons...from top to bottom:

1 Attention light: Indicates printer media input tray is empty, print cartridge door is open, print
cartridge is missing, or other errors.
2 Ready light: Indicates that the printer is ready to print.
3 Go button and light: To print a demo page or to continue printing while in manual feed mode,
press and release the Go button. To print a configuration page, press and hold the Go button
for 5 seconds.
4 Cancel Job button: When the printer is processing data, press the Cancel Job button to
cancel the print job.

Also, see if powering down the printer and unplugging it from the wall outlet for several minutes clears the repeating of the print job.

Paper jam light is on

Hi! I have the same issue. The only solution I still use: select print from document with no paper in the hp's feeder. Let the printer go on "paper out" message, now put the paper into the feeder and press the print button on the printer. Success!

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
