SOURCE: data overrun

I would hazard a guess that the printer is connected via the serial interface.....
If this is the case you either have a problem with you serial interface settings or the serial cable pin configuration does not match the printers serial interface pin configuration..

I would recommend printing a MENU print on the MT661 and check the serial interface settings these NEED TO MATCH THE HOST SYSTEM

To print a menu print.

  • Put the printer OFFLINE
  • Press MODE
  • Press the DOWN ARROW to HELP
  • Press ENTER
A menu print will be printed look for things like Protocol, Baud Rate, Data Bits, Stop Bits etc
These need to be set to match the host computer system.

The Data Overrun error is normaly associated with the incorrect serial interface settings on the pritner or the serial cable may have the wrong pin configuration or be damaged in someway.
I would recomend checking the serail interface settings including the follwoing settings; Parity, Protocol, start bits and stop bits

Printer Spoiler problem


<p><br />If the Print Spooler service fails when printing or when Windows starts or it can not be restarted, the usual reason is that one or more printer drivers is defective. The simplest way to resolve this is to remove all the drivers and reinstall them again.<br /> <p><br />If the Print Spooler service is not running, the Printers and Faxes folder will be empty and you can not use it to remove (or add) printers or printer drivers. <br /> <p><br /><b>Resolution:</b><br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Windows XP:</b><br /> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is operational:<br /> <p>1.<span> </span><span>Open the <b>Printers and Faxes</b> folder, Start-&gt;Printers and Faxes.</span><br /> <p>2.<span> </span><span>Delete all of the <span>printers</span></span> <br /> <p>3.<span> </span><span>Click <b>File</b>, Server Properties</span> <br /> <p>4.<span> </span><span>Select the <b>Drivers</b> tab</span> <br /> <p>5.<span> </span><span>For each entry:</span> <br /> <p>a.<span> </span><span>Select the entry</span> <br /> <p>b.<span> </span><span>Click Remove</span> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is not operational:<br /> <p>6.<span> </span><span>Open regedit Start-&gt;Run and type regedit.</span> <br /> <p>7.<span> </span><span>navigate to <b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers</b></span> <span>Under this key, there will be the keys Version-2 and Version-3 (one or the other of these may be absent - not a problem) the sub-keys under these contain the printer driver configuration information.

Will only print on quick print not on normal or photo


The problem could be due to your computer's Print Spooler or a possible firewall issue blocking the required processes for printing. Try the steps below to fix the problem:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.


However, if this is a firewall issue, please refer to this article from the Lexmark website on Processes (Executables) Utilized by Inkjet Products; A Brief Description of Their Function. Follow the steps in the article on how to allow the required process for your firewall.

Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this resolves your problem, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

Hi

HOW TO CHECK AND FIX PRINT SPOOLER SERVICE THAT CAUSES UNABLE TO PRINT FILE

Print spooler service is a computer service that loads the print jobs into the printer memory for later printing and it acts as intermediary between a computer and a printer. When the print spooler service is stopped or malfunction, printing is not possible.


Here are the possible reasons :

1. Virus or Malware infection.

2. Spooler service was stop by accident or turn off to manual/disable mode.

3.Faulty installed printer driver that contains error or incompatible with previous printer drivers installed in your computer or system.

4. Print jobs and drawing jobs were corrupted by accident which caused print que lock and resulting print spooler service to crash.

5. Your printer had printing problem issue with pdf files.


To fix this problem, you have to check if the print spooler service had stop.

Here's how to check and fix the print spooler service.

Go to START
Choose RUN
Type SERVICES.MSC
Click on PRINT SPOOLER and check if the STATUS IS STARTED
If not, on the upper left side, click on STOP to stop the spooler service
Then click on RESTART to restart the spooler
Restart your printer and your computer

A file won't Delete


You will have to manually clear your print queue. Here's how:

Start > Run > In the box type: services.msc

Scroll down the list and find LEXBCE server, Right-click on it and choose RESTART

Next, scroll down to PRINT SPOOLER, Right-click on it and choose RESTART

Your print queue will then clear out and the communication between your Dell (rebranded Lexmark) will be reestablished with your computer. Good luck!!!

Printer spooler freezes


you can try restarting the printer spooler by

pressing start -> run -> type in Services.msc

on the services list find print spooler and right click - restart.

That should solve it without a restart.
