Not printing When a job is submitted the printer just feeds paper continuosly. Nothing ever prints. When you check the job status it will say 25% complete. I have to turn the printer off for it to stop. I have not yet been able to print from my computer on this device.

Re: Not printing

This solved the problem for me. It assumes that you have only one Epson printer. (If you have more than one, you'll have to reinstall all of them.)

First delete your current printer. (Apple menu >> System Preferences >> Print & Fax. Select the printer and delete it.)

1. In the Finder, Go to /Library/Printers (Use the "Go" menu. Select "Go to Folder..." Type: /Library/Printers and click "Go")

2. Find the Epson folder and trash it.

3. Now go to /Library/Receipts and trash EpsonPrinterDrivers.pkg (or something like that; I'm relying on memory)

4. Empty the Trash and restart. (Epson recommends this.)

5. Fetch the CX6000 driver from the Epson site: [www_epson_com]

6. Install the software, then restart your computer (even though the installer does not prompt you to do this).

7. In System Preferences >> Print and Fax, click the "+" to add a printer. If the printer is connected directly to your computer, it should automatically select the correct driver.

I went through a series of tedious support calls to get this info. The problem is a conflict between different Epson drivers. In other words, Epson rushed their software out the door without adequate testing, so you have to go through all these extra steps to accommodate their errors.

Re: Not printing

Two things come to mind. One, ensure that you have a direct connection to the printer (no hub) and that the cable is about 6-10 ft long. Two, it may may be the driver installation. Often deleting and reinstalling a driver from Epson's website may help. Ensure you install the driver FIRST before plugging in the printer.

It means that the paper source selected in the print job was the Bypass tray (Manual Feed). You should be able to insert paper in the tray and press OK or Continue to start printing.

You can put special media on side bypass feed tray. Then select paper type/thickness. Choose the bypass tray and paper type when sending print job from your PC. Job status light will blink and you need to go to the copier to execute the print job for special paper.

Cannot empty the print que print jobs on IMac status is Deleted, except for last line which says "printing", but it is not printing

This is most likely because an error with the printer is making it impossible to delete the final print job. The most common error is no paper or a paper jam. Look for blinking lights on the printer and any error messages. Feed more paper if necessary. Once you fix the problem, reset the printer or press the blinking button.

Printer won't print documents. Green light on

Hmmm, try feeding a sheet of paper into the manual feed slot... you might have inadvertantly sent a Manual feed job, and the printer is waiting for a sheet to be fed by you.

The print job says out of paper, but there is paper loaded. When I submit the job, it does nothing, and after a few minutes I get the out of paper error

Check to be sure that the paper size matches between the application you are printing from and the printer. If the printer is set for letter and the document requests legal for example then this would be normal behavior.

Can't print. message load MPF won't go away

There is a print job waiting, either in the printer's memory or on your computer's memory. This print job is set to go to the Manual Paper Feed (MPF) which is accessible from the front of the printer by flipping down the little MPF door.

You can change settings for new print jobs, but once one job is submitted with "Please Print Me On The MPF" set, there's no way to change that job.

The easiest fix is to put some blank paper into the MPF and let it print out.

If it's spooled on the printer, you can turn the printer off and back on again to clear the job.
If it's spooled on your computer, you can view it by bringing up the Printer settings:
Start->Settings->Printers and Faxes
Find your 3100 and double-click on it.
Find the print job, select it and pick "Cancel" from the "Document" menu.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner

To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.

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).

Lexmark x1240 printer will not print.

Keep your paper feed under 15 pages. The paper will tend to pull to the right, but it will print correctly on the printed page. 20 to 25 pages in the feeder will result in a paper jam. To find the status on the print job, go to your control conter and hit printers. Choose your spicific printer and you may beable to save the printjob.

Msg:supply rec paper

Ya, I had that same problem too; I was printing something that was over printing margins, and then i had the message "supply rec. paper......" on the lcd screen. I ended up fixing the problem by clearing/canceling all the documents i was printing on my computer, and clearing/canceling all the documents saved inside the MEMORY OF THE PRINTER (note the green light with the "memory, in use" which means it's probably still trying to print the document that's too big, so it wont print anything else). (<--- not sure if that was your problem, but it was mine)

Anyways, to clear the memory inside the printer, i pressed the "status monitor" button located to the left of the "B&W start" button, and then i scrolled over to "print status, select job to cancel" and canceled all jobs, and then once i canceled all jobs, the alarm disappeared, and it was fixed XD
