I had this problem after I had fixed a problem printing from Quicken. I was able to print from Quicken by changing the print option in Windows -- mine was set to "Spool documents" and I changed it to "Print directly from printer" -- the advice I was given was to change it from whatever it was set at to the other option. For printing a PDF file, I changed it back to "Spool documents" and it allowed me to print the PDF file. Try this and see if it works for you -- click the Windows Start button and select Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Right click on the selected printer and select Properties. In the properties window look for a setting to print directly to printer or spool documents -- mine was under the Advanced option. Try the option not currently selected -- in my case, I changed it back to Spool documents with Begin printing immediately -- and then try to print a PDF file. It looks like I will have to toggle back and forth when I am printing from Quicken and when I am printing a PDF file. Hope this works for you.

Is that true for both print and copy job ?
Where does the jam happen ?
I am thinking if it is at the paper pickup roller area just as the job starts to print and not midway while printing, check the paper quality; dirty pickup roller; clean cork pad and try job from another tray
Start by pulling the paper tray out to stop further pages being printed without jamming the printer up.
Then go onto your print queue on your computer and delete the job that is printing 50 pages.
If it dissapears then put the paper tray back in and it may print out the last page or two that were in the printer buffer.
If it does not dissapear from the print queue then turn the printer off and try to delete the job again.
Once you have ordered the job deleted then you can turn your printer back on and put the paper tray back in and allow it to continue. It should only print out the last page or two and then the job will dissapear
For Brother Laser Machines. Start by pulling the paper tray out a little. This allows the page that is currently feeding through the system the chance to get through without jamming causing a whole slew of other problems.
Once the printer has stopped trying to feed the pages through coming up with an error saying paper out then you can look at deleting all the print jobs in the print queue on your computer. All but the one currently being printed should disappear when you delete them. The one that is left will be errored.
Then turn your printer off for 30 seconds closing the paper tray and try to delete that last job from the queue.
If it will not go then turn your printer back on and let the last couple of pages print out. these are pages that are stuck in the system. If the print job did disappear then just turn on your printer as normal and it should be clear of any jammed printing and you don't end up with Paper Jams in the printer to clear.
In the printer's dialogue find the print pages number. Print page from/to and select 20 pages chunks. In effect print only part of the document at a time. Add all chunks together in one pile. Work around I know, but it works.
Hi. The reasons listed in the manual that cause the LED to flash
Front cover is open Close the front cover of the printer. Back cover is open Close the back cover of the printer. Paper jam Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 6-5. If the printer does not start printing,
press the Go button. No paper fed manual feed slot Put the paper in the manual feed slot.
See Printing on
plain paper, bond paper or transparencies from the manual
feed slot on page 1-10 or Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes from
the manual feed slot on
page 1-13. Memory full The printer memory is full and the
printer cannot print full pages of a document. See Solving print problems on page 6-15. Print overrun A print overrun occurred and the printer
cannot print full pages of a document. See Solving print problems on page 6-15. Drum Error The corona wire
needs to be cleaned. See Cleaning the corona wire on page 5-14.
If you check out page 6-5 it tells how to clear the paper
jam from the rear of the machine! A point often missed.
Check out the website below if you don’t have a copy of the
instruction manual =
Keep your paper feed under 15 pages. The paper will tend to pull to the right, but it will print correctly on the printed page. 20 to 25 pages in the feeder will result in a paper jam. To find the status on the print job, go to your control conter and hit printers. Choose your spicific printer and you may beable to save the printjob.
I bought a brand new canon with my first pc years ago and it was the first and last ia m afraid, it worked for two...yes two...print jobs, i had it a wee k then it just stopped and said a jam, but it turned out to be the paer sensor. Brand new and they had to swap it. Seems a big fault with these. However, the next one seemed to be ok, but i had occasional cartridge issues. I have never had an ounce of trouble with my lexmark apart from alittle toddler paperjam!!!
