Question about Canon MF4100

Canon mf4100 series ufrii lt printing problem

Lately my printer shows "Error" everytime I print something. If I want to print a 6 page document, for example, it will only print the first page then stop after the first page and the red error light will begin flashing. The screen tells me that I need to "load the correct paper cassette: A4"-- but the paper is already loaded (I don't know where A4 is). The screen also says "resume: ok"; "cancel: sys.monitor". If I press the "system monitor" button nothing happens. If I press "ok" it prints the first page again then error flashes. This continues to happen from then on every time I press "ok". I want to print all 6 pages of my document without seeing the "error" light flashing.

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.

Brother printer taking too long to eject a printout


I'm not sure I understand your question. It sounds to me like the printer is working properly. An inkjet will spit a text only page out faster than a page with graphic data on it.

Ink Jets print the images in a "Swath" pattern. This is what gives the page the step motion on exiting a printer.

Now laser printers, since they are intelligent printers, will build an image and then transfer the image, fuse the image and eject the page in one smooth operation.

But lasers would require a "Print Page" command from the datastream to force the page ejection or trying to print outside of the no print area on the page.

For example a PCL 5e datastream would issue a hex 0x0C command to eject the page.

PostScript wouold issue a "Showpage" command.

Printing


Some net printouts need to be printed in Lanscape mode. For example I just selected Print Preview on this page and some of the right side is missing. You can use page setup to select landscape.

Hope that helps...
