Cancel print job with a linux operating system

You've sent a print job to your printer and the green light is blinking, but the printer is not printing. The light blinks for a very long time.
The blinking light indicates that the printer is recieving your print request and will print shortly. If the document you are attempting to print is very large or contains many graphics or images, the printer must spool this data into its memory before printing. This can take quite a bit longer than usual. PDF files are notorious for taking longer than other document types.

In this case, it is best to wait a period of time before taking action. Give the printer 10 minutes and see if it prints.

If it does not print within this window of time, do the following.

1. In the bottom right corner of your screen, you will see a small printer icon. Double click on this icon to open the printer job menu.
2. You will see your print job located there, with other information, including its status.
3. Select the job by right clicking on it and select Cancel.
4. The job should cancel itself.
5. Unplug the printer, removing all power and leave it sit for a couple of minutes.
6. Plug the printer back in and allow it to go through its start up phase until the "Ready" indicator light is solid. This indicates that the printer is ready to recieve jobs.
7. You may now attempt to print again.

Prints the colors but not blacks from the computer but does copies in black but missing pieces.

Unplug the machine and remove the black ink and take some contact cleaner and Q-tips to clean the contacts in the machine. re-install the ink and run the clean program and the alignment program.

Can i make copies witht he brother hp 2040 printer

A printer would produce print outs of documents in versions known as hardcopies(paper). However, multifucntion devices usually would have an area on the printer that allows to feed in an aready printered document to be reproduced several times into several hardcopies(paper copies). Unless that, the printer has multifunction capabilities, in which instance would be in writing specified as capable of performing printing, copying and several feature functions, it would be unlikely to perform copies from an already existing document.

LaserJet 5Si printing slow use to be able to hit the print key then the printer would fire away. seems like the printer pauses between pages then prints maybe 3 to 4 pages per minute

Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document

Printer will not copy although we can still print documents sent from the computer.

Is it infax mode?
Do you get a green Start Button?
Are there any error codes diaplayed when you push the button?

If no to these, unplug the machine for several minutes and restart.

Hope this is of some help

Not Printing

The copy function works fine because the printer alone is handling the copy. When you print, you need two machines to get their stories straight. Is your printer turned on before the machine boots up? or is the printer turned on after the machine has booted? Sometimes Windows won't load all the drivers needed if it doesn't detect a device during bootup. You may want to download the latest and greatest drivers from the HP site, uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
