When you say it is printing "unwanted pages," what is it printing? Are they blank? If so, you may need to reformat your pages. What program are you printing from?

My HL 2270DW won't stop printing goobldegook. One or so lines on each page, and the printer job does not show in the cue so it can not be cancelled. I can not print any jobs because of this malfun


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 job ORyou have an internal circuit board that'sgone bad

Why is the light flashing on the right side


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.

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

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.

When I cancel the printer does not print other items that have been scanned. it gets hung up.


Hi,
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.
