Printer keeps reprinting same material

I try stopping the printing by closing the window or trying to cancel it, but it just says, "trouble communicating with the printer" , and keeps on printing. I have tried unplugging the power cord and the USB, that did not help.

Hi Canela,
Unfortunately most printers have what is called a Cache memory. once you initiate a print job the computer loads it in to the printer, Much like filling a glass of water then the printer takes slow sips so as not to overload the job..if you decide to cancel the print job at your computer you also have to hit the stop button on the printer. In most cases this will empty that "glass" Out and clear the memory. In Vista this problem is inherent to that O.S. I'm still an Xp kinda guy. I hope this helps. Be mucho blessed.. Mark

Need to print a fax in memory, machine was turned off and unplugged


It may be too late to print the faxes if your printer was unplugged. But you can try:



reprint the faxes in memory

Your HP OfficeJet can store a limited number of fax pages in its memory, with

the number of pages depending on the model you purchased. When your

HP OfficeJet runs out of memory to store faxes, it will not receive any more fax

calls until the stored faxes are printed.

Reprint Faxes in Memory enables you to reprint a fax stored in memory. For

example, if your print cartridge runs out of ink or paper becomes jammed when

printing a fax. This option prints all faxes in memory; press Cancel to stop

printing faxes you do not need.

1 Press Menu.

2 Press 2, then press 3.

This selects the Fax Functions menu, then selects the Reprint Faxes in
Memory
option. The faxes are printed from memory.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Card keeps jamming and ribbon breaks


Download the Fargo Diagnose Utility .

But Requires Windows 98, 2000, NT, XP, Me; 16MB of RAM (Recommended); SVGA Monitor (800x600 or higher is required); and at least one printer drivers installed.

If a card becomes jammed inside the printer, the LCD Display will indicate
approximately where it is jammed. At this point you can either try to correct the
problem and continue printing with the same card, or remove the card completely
and continue printing with a new card. Refer to the following steps for instructions
on doing either:
1. Leave the power ON, and open of the printer?s Top Covers.

2. Remove the ribbon and overlaminate as needed.

3. If you would like to try to correct the problem and continue printing with
the same card, do so by pressing the On/Cancel button to advance the card or
the Pause/Resume button to reverse the card. Use these buttons to help free the
card from its jam. Try not to move the card too far from where it was just
before the jam occurred. Once the jam is cleared, replace media, close the Top
Cover(s), and press the Pause/Resume button to resume printing.

4. If you would like to remove the jammed card completely, do so by using the
On/Cancel and Pause/Resume buttons to manually eject the card. Then,
replace media, close the Top Covers, and press the On/Cancel button. At this
point, the LCD Display will prompt you to either press the Pause/Resume
button or the On/Cancel button. Pressing the Pause/Resume button will cause
the printer to feed in a new card and reprint the job which originally jammed
along with all subsequent jobs still being sent. Pressing the On/Cancel button
will reboot the printer and cancel all jobs within the printer?s memory. In this
case, you must also cancel and resend the print jobs from your computer.

CLEARING A RIBBON OR OVERLAMINATE JAM
If the ribbon or overlaminate becomes stuck to a card or jammed inside the printer,
the LCD Display will indicate that it is jammed. Refer to the following steps to clear
the jam:
1. Leave the power ON, and open the printer?s Top Covers as necessary.
2. Remove the Take-Up core (the side with used ribbon or overlaminate on it)
from in between the two black Drive Hubs.
3. Steadily pull the ribbon or overlaminate free from where it is jammed. If stuck
to a card, pull the ribbon or overlaminate off the card and throw the card away.
If it is jammed underneath the rollers, press and hold down the printer?s
Pause/Resume button as you gently pull up on the ribbon or overlaminate. Do
not **** the ribbon or overlaminate to free it, since this will increase the chance
of breaking it. If it does happen to break, simply tape the broken end of the
supply roll directly onto the take-up roll. Then, wind a few inches worth of
ribbon or overlaminate from the supply roll onto the take-up roll. Be sure the
ribbon or overlaminate is passing beneath both the supply and take-up rolls.
4. Once the jam is cleared, replace media, close the Top Covers, and press the
On/Cancel button. At this point, the LCD Display will prompt you to either
press the Pause/Resume button or the On/Cancel button. Pressing the
Pause/Resume button will cause the printer to feed in a new card and reprint
the job which originally jammed along with all subsequent jobs still being sent.
Pressing the On/Cancel button will reboot the printer and cancel all jobs
within the printer?s memory. In this case, you must also cancel and resend the
print jobs from your computer.
H. CLEANING THE CARD FEED ROLLERS
To assure consistent printer operation, all of the gray card feed rollers within the
printer should be cleaned during every ribbon change (every 250 prints) or if the
rollers are noticeably dirty. To clean these rollers, use the special adhesive-backed
Cleaning Cards from the Printer Cleaning Kit. Refer to the following steps to run a
Cleaning Card through your printer:
1. Open the Top Covers and remove all print supplies from the printer. Leave the
printer power ON and the Top Covers open throughout this procedure. The
Cleaning Roller Assembly can also remain within the printer during this
cleaning process.
2. Remove the Cleaning Card?s adhesive backing paper.

Printer stopped working after I cancelled a print job


Turn off your printer and completely unplug the USB cable (from both the printer and the computer). Next check if the stopped document or the later documents are in the print spooler queue. If you can cancel all documents from the queue, do so. Otherwise: from Start Run (or the command prompt)
type: net stop spooler [enter]
then type: net start spooler [enter]

This works in XP and older MS Operating Systems but I've never tried it in Vista.

If you only enter the first command, you need to reboot the computer and then take a long coffee break after logging in before trying to print again.
