Has it worked before? Many of these newer printers can print what are called Postscript documents, and you may have a Postscript driver instaled instead of the regular driver, or both and have selected the wrong driver when sending the jobORyou have an internal circuit board that'sgone bad
If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:
• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing. • The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.
If it's Busy: • Wait for the message to clear. • Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job. • Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.
If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages: • Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the printing stops. • Press and release Cancel to cancel printing. • Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.
That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.
The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.
After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.
Click on Start on the desktop.
Click on Printers and Faxes
Right click on your printer icon
You will get a box showing your printer work.
Click on the Printer
A drop down menu will appear.
Click on Cancel All Printing.
there will be an icon on the taskbar on the right corner.
a set of pages are saved there when you make use of your printer..
remove all the contents from that are and unwanted pages will not be printed
You should show an Icon in the task bar when printing,right click it.Then click cancel print job.You can also get there by start menu,then click printers and faxes.Then click your printer and cancel print.
Note:you can always do a print preview by clicking the little arrow(in explorer)next to the printer Icon.Then pick what pages you want to print,click apply,then print.Hope this helps?
when you print an article on-line. it goes into your printers memory. 10 pages for instance. if you cancel after 5 pages. the printers RAM ( memory ) stores the remaining pages to be printed. the only way to do this, is to cancel printing. then go into printer program. and delete the queue, or pending items, before exiting windows.
hope this explains your dillema.
