Does not take the paper

Green light on. Once I send a job to the printer, it starts to take the paper, but fails, and "paper" light and "error" are on. I tried couple of times; restart PC, cleared jobs in the queue, but nothing works. Thanks

Re: does not take the paper

It's a problem with the feeder, or you haven't fed the paper properly. Make sure the clips holding the paper have a grip on the paper, but not too much to stop it from feeding. If this fails, it is likely that the feeding roller is not gripping the paper correctly and may have some nasty substance on it. If this is not the case then it will be a warranty repair on such a thing like this.

My lexmark Z2320 printer will not print. It places jobs in queue but still will not print. The green power light constantly flashes quickly once turned on. I have tried unplugging the printer from the main...

The flashing light on the printer indicates there is a problem. Make sure there is no paper jam or cartridges are properly installed. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Remove the sheets of paper from the printer. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges (make sure the cartridges still have ink in them). Close the printer cover and check the power light. If not blinking, proceed with loading of paper. Reconnect the printer to your computer.
Make sure the print queue has no pending print jobs before sending another print job.

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.

check the printer paper tray setting to make sure the paper tray side guide is right agains the paper. I hope this will solve your problem.

HP Laserjet 4L - Grinding or Growling noise when job sent to printer

purchase a maintenance kit.
replace the piper pickup roller.
since the the printer is old and lots things need to be replaced. it is easier to replace all of the necessary parts when you have the printer apart.
the job is not difficult, just time consuming.

this could probably caused by interrupted spooled jobs that was sent earlier, as i assumed, try pressing the cancel button on the printer itself, or from your pc cancel all documents.

if you cant recover still reset the printer once again and put some paper to finish the pending job that was qued earlier

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.
