Many the printers will need more information to perform a printing task. Depending on the task("firmware updates") will provide necessary information to do this. Many times this goes neglected. If you do not get periodic updates for your printer, It is a good idea to browse the manufacturer of the printer. What to do at this point is to print out a self-test page to get current Driver software information. Then go to printer's support website and see if there is an current or "newer" update. Once this is in place it should be tested for it's functionality. If this solves the problem, try this insted of considering the worse. If this does not inspect the operating system of the printer that is sending information to the printer. I have come to understand many drivers for the software that some retailers use usually end up out of business or changed their name. All of these thigs should Always be performed prior to condemning a Hardware issue incorporated in a printer. Hope this helps, Best,Stephen

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

We are using our Konica Minolta Di3510 as our primary printer. It is connected via ethernet. Everything was working fine until we added internet. Now about half the jobs I send to the Di3510 get stuck...


There is too little information to work out your problem here exactly, but I think here is a conflict in your network. I think you have to read the manual of your modem and printer to see for the settings of your network. Is it DHCP? Do you have a fixed IP address for your printer (that is the best thing to do), and is your Gateway address correct with the correct subnetmask. When your printer starts, it 'asks' for a IP address. Your modem 'gives' an address, but it can be a conflict with an other address in the network. If you set a fixed IP address, your printer will always have the same address and can be found... So take the time to look carefully to your modem settings: is DHCP on? Which range will it use? What is the Gataway address, what is your subnet mask? Take also a look at your printer settings: Is DHCP on? Does it have a fixed IP address? And take a look to your printer driver: to what IP address are you printing? Those three things have to match in order to recognize each other.

When I click on cancel and then on "yes" the printing job continues. Sometimes I want to stop in the middle of the job because I have gotten all that I want printed.


The printer has a buffer which stores data from the computer as it's printing, and even after you cancel a job the printer will keep going until it uses up that data. If you've printed all you need, you can shut off the printer. This will cause Windows to tell you about the communication error, and you can cancel the job then. When you turn the printer back on, the buffer is clear and it won't print anything else until the next job.

Not printing, green and red lights flashing fast


Maybe you're missing some software your printer needs in order to print. Go to the manufacturer's website and see if there are any software updates for your model.

Sometimes you have to cold reboot the printer. Turn it off and pull the plug for a minute or two. So you get it to wipe out the memory of the print job. While you wait for it, go to the print que on your computer and see how many print jobs are in line? If the pint got "jammed" and you added more jobs to it, there may be more than one in line. With the printer off, go ahead and delete all the print jobs if you can. Once you are up again, try the print job one more time.

Its not responding and the warming up sign flashing for along time


Mine will do this... sometimes even after I just printed something! Sometimes I fix it by canceling the print job and then turning off the printer. Wait a few seconds and turn the printer back on then try again and it usually works. Other times all I have to do is "open" the printer as if I was going to change the ink cartridge and when I shut it back down, it will print without any more problems.

Printer is confusing.sometimes it says, "problem comunicating with the printer" sometimes it prints in notepad,sometimes don't. newly installed cartridges but still has question mark on the black some


There were times that the printer would give you that message. In order for the computer to properly recognize the printer, here's what you are going to do:

1. Remove the cartridge from the printer.
2. Turn the printer off and unplug it from the wall outlet.
3. Put the cartridge back while the printer is off.
4. Give for about 2 minutes.
5. Turn the printer back on.

Try these steps.

I have to restart my printer before printing receipts


Look to see if your cutter blade got left un-retracted. Sometimes turning it on and off causes it to return to proper position, and next receipt prints.
