Press right arrow to select "Off."
Press Enter.
Press Enter again.

2840 printer -- can't print because document is

Basically it is telling you it doesn't have the memory required to process the page (usually because of graphics). If this is the case, you can try setting the resolution in the print driver to a lower setting (sometimes referred to as quality) so that the memory can handle the graphics.

I have an HP 2840 and recently when it begins to print it says...Page too complex and won't print.

Have you tried simplifying the page to be printed? What memory is installed in the printer. You may need to upgrade the printer memory or the memory could be faulty.
