If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
Appendix A Memory Allocation
Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.
For a Canon C3220: - Choose the Printer tab on the touch screen- Under Printer Status, go to Settings- Go to Functions- Go to Print Pages- Select Configuration The configuration page will print out. Thanks for using FixYa! For configuration page instructions on other copiers, printers, and fax machines, check out the How to print config pages blog.
This is usually caused by data within the print job. Microsoft Office sends paper size and job data with each job. Clear all print jobs in the computer sending the job.(Start/Printers/double click the canon printer and delete all jobs in the print que. Clear the Canon by off/on. Open a program and print a standard letter size document to test. This can be corrected by going to the page/document setup choices under "File" or the Ball in MS Office. Usually this is set to A4 or Bypass by mistake within the application. Thanks
Have you rebooted your computer? The printer's memory is very limited -- certainly not enough to hold an entire page. Your computer feeds the printer a line at a time, so it would seem that your computer's print spooler is 'stuck' on that print job. Try shutting the computer down completely, then restarting and see if that print job clears out.
How to force delete print jobs
Fortunately, there is a way to delete the hung print job without
having to save all your work, close all your applications, and restart
your computer. Here's how (note that this is intended for Windows XP
systems, but a similar approach works on other systems - if this
doesn't work for you reply below with your Operating System and
Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)
Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder
You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)
Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your
taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View ->
Voila :) You should see that annoying hung print job finally
disappear completely and you should now be able to resume printing
without having to restart your computer.
First of all you must let canceled print jobs finish deleting before sending new jobs, if the job is taking too long try restarting the computer with the printer on to clear the jobs this usually works if not then after restart open the printers folder and cancel all jobs here. let them finish deleting while the printer is still on (they must remain in communication during deleting jobs. Once all jobs are gone, remove the power brick from the printer for about a minute then reinsert and let the printer start up if it doesn't after a minute or so just turn it on once it finishes then try printing again.
The answer depends upon the printer controller that your 3220 has.
There are at least 3 controllers & probably twice as many versions for the assorted printer controllers.
The key is do you have a Fiery (Little white box hanging on the back) or does the network connect directly into the NIC on the upper left corner of the copier.
Drivers with -C1 or -C2 connote a Fiery printer driver.
I would advise using the PS drivers if this is the case as the Fiery is much better at PS than PCL.
Another way to tell if Fiery is on copier is scroll to right on LCD panel & see if there is a "Printer" screen. If so you can go in to "functions" "Print Pages" & print a "Configuration" page. this will show you the network ip#. Put the # in your web browser (no http:// etc needed) & you can download the correct drivers for Mac / PC right from the device. If no Fiery is on the device stick with PCL5C drivers as they are usually the best for Canon PDL board print controllers.
I am posting this in hopes of helping others that are having issues with the Vista print spooler. In my case, I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Vista connected to a wireless hub. I also have a Minolta Konica 2300DL printer that is connected to the network via the wireless hub as well. Ever since obtaining this laptop, I have not been able to print to the printer other than stopping and starting the print spooler to obtain a single print 'job'. After about six months I found a post that contains the fix - I cannot take credit for it! Follow these instructions to get your printer to work:
1.) Go into control panel - I would suggest classic view as it is a little easier to navigate.
2.) Then go into User Accounts.
3.) From User Accounts go into Turn User Account Control On or Off
4.) UNCHECK Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.
5.) At this point you will probably require a reboot.
Once this exercise is complete, you should be able to print. One more item off of my Honey DOO list!!!!!
