Make sure you and the other person both have the exact same paper type in you rprinter defaults in print properties. This is usually the case as the printer is looking for different paper size or type.

Hope this helps

    I have found that setting both tray 1and tray 2 size and type of paper (under the "paper handling" menu) to "any size" and "any type" usually solves those types of issues.
    Give it a try.
    Keep in mind that the "manual feed" setting will also be a factor.
    For some reason, this setting is found under the "configure device" menu.

Printer will not switch on. stuck on standby


Remove any other pending print jobs in the printers que until you are left with just the problem ones. Just click on each print job and choose cancel!

If a print job in the que shows "deleting" but never completes the command;

  • Go to Start then choose Run
  • Type " net stop spooler " and press Enter

Go to the computer that has the shared printer attached and perform Steps 1 & 2 above.

If that does not work then go to the computer where the Print Job was sent from and perform steps 1 & 2 on that computer.

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers in a small business, please refer to the "Select & Share The Right Printer For Your Small Business"

Brother HL-5240 printer problem

This usually means a print job is stuck in the queue that was set to "manual feed" or to a different paper size, such as legal. Add paper to the front manual feed and press "Go". If this is the problem, the stuck document will begin printing from the manual tray.

To clear the problem without printing from the manual feed, cancel all jobs on the printer, delete any jobs out of the Windows print queue and restart the computer.

Cannot print on shared printer

I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
