Are you using the correct print driver? Many times, if the print driver is for a similar product, it may not have that option. It would be a good idea to see if you have the specific driver especially the PCL6 version.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The ability for me to manually update the driver has been blocked (it's a work PC) - will request a driver update from my IT support.

SOURCE: Can't disable / remove "Print Status Window" on Sharp Ar-M160/M200

Remove the printer software and use a generic Windows driver. That is the only way, since the status window is part of the driver software. If the printer is postscript enabled you can almost always use the HP laserjet 4 driver which is basically generic postscript.

SOURCE: how do i use the auto configuration facility on a

While at the printer settings page of the copier on your PC under printer configuration there is an automatic configuration tab. Once you press this it will ask you to check the boxes with the arrow . The paper is set determined by the copier itself. You may need to check your copier settings to make sure it detects the correct paper in the tray. Also it is not recommended to install this way mainly because if the customer doesn't want to print color they are not able to change the printer condition settings at the individual PCs. So individual install is recommended.

MX M503n will not staple when printing.

It sounds like you have not configured your print driver. The good news is this is way easy to do. Go to your devices and printers and then right click the sharp and go to printer properties click the configure tab and then click auto configure then select the option that it recommends. This will only work if you are using a Sharp driver and not one of the universal windows drivfers.

It says Rendering in the spool section of Job Status

I know this is from months ago but I'll post this reply so people in the future can see it:

You probably need to do an image memory clear on the machine to clear out the corrupted print job, delete it from the queue on your computer, then reboot the machine.

To do an image memory clear on a Sharp MX-4111N:
1. double tap the home button
2. touch the firmware version in the bottom right corner(it doesn't look like a button but it is)
3. a number pad will pop up, hit P * C *
4. you should now be in the simulation menu, hit 66, Mono, 10, mono, execute, yes.

Give the machine a minute to process, then it should reboot automatically. If at this point you cannot print, you need to clear the print queue on each computer and do another image memory clear.

Greyed out

If this is when you select this machine to print to, it may be because the print driver is not configured properly. Go to main driver under start, control panel, printer, right click on printer, select configuration, then auto configuration and select everything with a finger pointing to it. Then try again.

Cant staple from driver but can staple directly from the machines panel ... particularly 8x14

Most Likely the issue is resolved by configuring the driver properly. If you right click the printer under Printers and faxes in your start menu you need to go to properties, then to the configuration tab and then to Auto Configuration. it will then communicate with the printer and find out what options are installed and then enable you to use stapling from your computer. Make sure to select where the hands are pointing also. thanks. you will understand.
