Status stopprintatus

I did not understand sir, what you want to ask.If you want to rename the file then its not possible on machine.You can just give print cannot edit it or rename the documents to be printed through machine.Every time you will check job list there will be an option to stop printing or CANCEL.If you want to make a copy then simply place the original in document feeder or onto the glass then simply press the START button.Its best to select the tray first.If red light glows then check the trays are properly closed.Check if tray is empty then load paper.Every time any error comes on machine it will appear on screen.When red light glows, kindly check if there is some indication appeared on screen or instructions, then please follow it or explain the problem in detail which you are facing.ALL THE BEST!

When i m on printer inittilizeing sound came but but any one light on and like hang dont work again,some times paper error light ,some time toner error light,

Hi there,
You can test the printer by three ways,
1. Press and hold Green button for atleast 5 seconds it will take out the configuration printer, also the toner status page will come too
2. If the toner light is on , check the current toner status from the test prints taken before,
3. if the Error light is on, make sure there is no paper jaming in the printer, remove any paper stucked on the tray side, as well as check by removing the toner also
One thing more you can check the configuration for the Printer tray selected in the system,
Remove the Printer Drivers from the computer and try installing the software again, sometimes if you have selected manual tray feeding, or you have selected Tray 1 as default Tray and there is no page in the Tray 1 it will also, gives you the error on printer, 2nd thing you can check is the Paper size, both in computer and on tray 2 in printer, you take out a tray from the printer and adjust the nob to A4 . if you are using this printer on network, you have to reinstall the drivers for the printer, and it should give you the print,

If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post,
Thanks for contacting FixYA!

Why is red light on samsung clp- 315 and it is not printing

Does one of these situations apply to you?

The Status LED light is Red and the Toner lights are OFF (Check Smart Panel for message)

  • A Paper Jam has occurred.
  • The Front, Top, or Back Cover is open.
  • There is no paper in the Paper Tray.
  • There is a problem with the Waste Toner container.
  • A major error has occured.

The Status LED light is Blinking/Flashing Red and the Toner light(s) are Red

  • The Toner cartridge(s) that are Red need to be replaced. (Can still be used to print, but quality is unreliable)

The Status LED light is Red and the Toner light(s) are Red

  • The Toner cartridge(s) that are Red need to be replaced. (Printing is not available)
  • The Toner cartridge(s) are not installed properly.

How to stop red blinking "paper"? couldn't stop

There is probably a paper jam since you shut it off as it was printing. Turn off the printer. Remove the tray and look inside. Remove any sheets of paper you see. Open the back of the printer (the pass-thru door) and remove any paper you see. Turn on the printer. If that fails, check the blink status against the manual's troubleshooting guide to locate a different solution.

Printer status screen is red and will not print Canon i560 Inkjet

You need to count the number of flashes, usually long green then a certain number of flashes, sometimes alternating red and green flashes. I need to know the number of flashes to tell you what the error is.

Red light on steady

If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.

Paper tray is full and the paper light keeps flashing.

First check the machine for paper jams. If not, remove the paper from the paper tray and reinstall it. Then try to print from the MP tray.If this works, check paper size settings on the printer driver, or the small black arm which hangs down next to the paper pick up roller, and is the paper sensor.

Can't print from the MP tray?

When you print labels or envelopes you need to select the correct tray from the print menu. (File print or ctrl P) or the printer will think the normal paper tray is being used.

You can force the printer to change the tray after the print has been sent by pressing the continue button on the printer, just make sure that the normal tray has no paper in it.
