How can I fix the issue when my printer says "User intervention required?"

I'd guess you have a paper jam, maybe even tiny piece.
Check error message on printer's panel. try turn off for 10min.
turn back on. Users manual on software install CD may help understand message.

Mp250 canon user intervention required problem

Clear pause printing
  1. From the Windows Desktop, select Start , Settings , and Printers .
  2. Right-click the HP LaserJet printer icon that is being used.
  3. Select the Work Offline or Pause Printing option (if enabled) to remove the check.
  4. Print the document again.
Establish parallel connection
  1. Turn off the printer or remove the printer from the network.
  2. Connect the printer to the PC using a parallel cable.
  3. Power on the printer.
  4. Print the document again. NOTE: If the User Intervention Required message reappears, disable or remove any HP LaserJet software utilities loaded on the system (for example, Status Window, HP Toolbox, etc.). Prove printer functionality and troubleshoot communications; try printing again.
Uninstall and reinstall the driver After performing a cold reset on a product installed with USB, a higher DOT4_00x port is created, causing the printer to hang while printing. NOTE: This is required with products installed on a USB port only.
  1. Uninstall the USB printer driver.
  2. Remove the HP folder and AIO folder from the hard drive.
  3. Reinstall the USB printer driver.
CAUSE: This error can occur if when using a network or printing from a laptop. When the print job goes into a pending status, the printer is either in Work Offline or Pause Printing mode. Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

Hi go into the printer folder and check that the printer states ready not offline if it does state offline right hand click on the icon and select use printer online. If this still doesn't fix the problem then double click on the printer icon this should open the printer window where you will be able to see what is and been sent to the printer.

Click on the document heading and select restart. This should restart the printing with no problems but if it doesn't then click on the Printer heading and select cancel all documents then try printing again.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J
