Brother mcf7220 will not print..says "cancel printing" "job cancel"

It keeps saying cancel printing and job cancel. Nothing happens when i press the 'job cancel' button. The computer's print que is empty. I think the problem started when i mistakenly send a print job to the brother printer/fax rather than another printer i have. It won't print anything at all..and i don't know how to get rid of this error message. Is there a way to reset the whole machine?

I cant figure out how to cancel print jobs on my printer. Its a brother MFC 210C MFC-420CN Its been out of ink for awhile and now all of these documents are keep printing because we put ink in. I cant get...

If you are using xp click on start , then control panel, then printers and fax, double click and a small window will open showing all of your print jobs. Click on the farthest left item (on mine it says printers) then it comes with an option to cancel all print jobs, click that. I hope this helps. If that first item does not show it click on all of the options at the top till you find the one that says cancel all print jobs.

I need free support to empty memory of brother HL-2140 printer

This error occurs when your printer is dealing with a particually complicated print job and cannot process it all. Try to reduce the complexity of your document or cut the print resolution. It may be worth trying to print the document in several parts if at all possible.

I hope this helps.

It does sound like a paper sensor in the automatic document feeder may be stuck and the machine keeps trying to eject the paper that is not there. I have not seen this before, you may have to call Brother at 1-877-BROTHER to find the nearest service center.

My computer keep saying my 9650 printer is out of paper but it isn't

Try this:

Connect your printer and power it on. In the flag just cancel it. If it does help, go to printer and faxes, select the printer, then cancel all printing job wait for a moment until it disappear.

If nothing happens for sometime. Feed some paper to it, say 1 piece of paper, reactivate printing job, if print then no follow up paper it will flag again out of paper. Select cancel.

If it still doesn't work switch off and on the printer and repeat the process again.

Hope it helps you

Brother HL-5240 printer problem

This usually means a print job is stuck in the queue that was set to "manual feed" or to a different paper size, such as legal. Add paper to the front manual feed and press "Go". If this is the problem, the stuck document will begin printing from the manual tray.

To clear the problem without printing from the manual feed, cancel all jobs on the printer, delete any jobs out of the Windows print queue and restart the computer.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer

A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).
