Question about HP DeskJet F4280 All In One Printer InkJet

Open Question

Printer stuck in "Pause". Refuses to accept print command.

My 2 month old HP F4280 printer appears ON but the screen indicates that it is paused. Nothing will print. It just suggests that the item will be put in the queue until it the current pause is ended or words to that effect. I have no idea what caused this. All I did was put in a new cartridge and it froze immediately after the alignment paper printed out. Everything stopped there. I have unplugged and re-plugged everything to no avail. Any attempt to go beyond this stage produces a request for a name and a password. I never used a password for this printer. My MAC OX password just rejects, although I did not expect it to be useful here. HELP!

My printer is paused and I can't get it to unpause.


Here are the problems due to which a printer gets stuck in pause and ways to fix it:

* Problems
* Reinstall drivers
* Verify Print Spooler service

Problems

There are several problems due to which your printer gets stuck in pause. Driver issues are considered to be one of the major problems as they allow printers to communicate with the Operating System of your PC. When there are problems with Print Spooler, your printer can get stuck in pause.

Reinstall drivers

In order to resolve the problems that occur when your printer get stuck in pause, as a first step, you will have to disconnect the printer and delete the printer from Device Manager. An outdated printer driver will also cause certain problems. Thus, you need to download the appropriate printer driver from manufacturers website and install it on your PC. It is also wise to update the driver frequently.

Mp250 canon user intervention required problem


Clear pause printing
  1. From the Windows Desktop, select Start , Settings , and Printers .
  2. Right-click the HP LaserJet printer icon that is being used.
  3. Select the Work Offline or Pause Printing option (if enabled) to remove the check.
  4. Print the document again.
Establish parallel connection
  1. Turn off the printer or remove the printer from the network.
  2. Connect the printer to the PC using a parallel cable.
  3. Power on the printer.
  4. Print the document again. NOTE: If the User Intervention Required message reappears, disable or remove any HP LaserJet software utilities loaded on the system (for example, Status Window, HP Toolbox, etc.). Prove printer functionality and troubleshoot communications; try printing again.
Uninstall and reinstall the driver After performing a cold reset on a product installed with USB, a higher DOT4_00x port is created, causing the printer to hang while printing. NOTE: This is required with products installed on a USB port only.
  1. Uninstall the USB printer driver.
  2. Remove the HP folder and AIO folder from the hard drive.
  3. Reinstall the USB printer driver.
CAUSE: This error can occur if when using a network or printing from a laptop. When the print job goes into a pending status, the printer is either in Work Offline or Pause Printing mode. Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

My hp printer is stuck on pause. I need free help to get it off of pause. Thank you. I tried run and tried to create a notebook but that did not really work out very well. Or else I didn't do it very well....


I went to Control Panel, then Hardware and Sound, then Printers, then double clicked on the word "Paused" under my printer's status and clicked "Resume Printing" -which worked for me when my HP printer was stuck.

No printing...?


Make sure after you click 'print' that the printer you are printing from is not the 'fax'. I had this happen too... just a suggestion ;)
