Question about Lexmark Optra S 1255 Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have been printing chapters in a book. One chapter will not print. The message on the Lexmark screen is "flushing buffer". does anyone know what this means or why it will not print?

We have Lexmark Optra S 1255. I have been printing several files, but it will not print one file. The message is: "flushing buffer." Do you know what this means?

The 'flushing buffer' is most likely due to a corrupt file or file to large for the printer memory. You can check the file size and reduce it. Also you might want to upgrade your memory for the printer. Also might want to check your printer settings if the page you are having trouble printing is different from the other pages printed, such as text & graphics, etc. There is also a possibly of print program incompatibility or Windows OS Patch required but I doubt this since you have printed other pages without any problem. If you need to re-install Lexmark driver: http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi Or, if you need the Lexmark user's guide & reference guide: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/eng/optras/index.html

SOURCE: What does "flushing buffer" mean

No response from the original poster as of 6/6/09. Normally, a "Flushing Buffer" message is pointing at a Postscript problem. A quick easy test would be to set the printer for PCL and retry the job. If it works, then you really need to look at the PS print file to find the error. Don

The printer can't handle the data it received and flush it out of its buffer. Goto Menu->Settings->Postscript Settings and turn "Print PostScript Erro" on. When the same print job prints, you should get a page printed out telling you what the printer doesn't like. You may also want to try forcing the printer into Postscript mode. Your PS file probably contains a PJL to set the device to PS mode before it prints. When the printer expects PCL data and received PS data(or vise versa), you can get this behaviour
