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
There is probably a paper jam since you shut it off as it was printing. Turn off the printer. Remove the tray and look inside. Remove any sheets of paper you see. Open the back of the printer (the pass-thru door) and remove any paper you see. Turn on the printer. If that fails, check the blink status against the manual's troubleshooting guide to locate a different solution.
Disconnect the printer power plug from the wall for 2 mins and plug it back in and turn the printer on and turn on your PC and see if that helps.
The printer has a memory which stores information you may have sent to the printer. If you kept hitting the print button then it may have saved all those print commands in memory and it is printing that out. That is what happens most of the time at my office. So you need to erase the memory by turning off the printer from the wall. Hope this helps
Pull the paper out, then try to delete the print job out of the printing que. You can also try restarting your Print Spooler service and also rebooting the printer and PC. Steps can be different depending on your OS and printer, but these are basic steps. If above soesn't work, post more details.
You need to cancel all pending print jobs on the queue. If you see the printer's icon on your System Tray, lower right corner of your computer, right click it and choose Cancel Print Jobs. Or you can double click it so that it will show you the current printing job or those in queue. Select and delete them. If this does not cancel the pending print jobs, disconnect your printers power cord and shutdown the computer. After like 10 minutes, turn the printer and computer back again.
The ink levels will replenish themselves.
To clear the printer queue, check the queue first on the computer (there should usually be a printer icon in the system tray).
If you cannot clear it via the computer, do so via the printer itself (unfortunately not all printers do this the same way so we'd need to know the printer make and model)
The letters and number it is printing is the self test print mode. Normally to run the self test you would turn the printer off, then hold down the feed button, then while holding the feed button, turn the power back on. It sounds like your feed button may be stuck.
I just got off the HP help line. After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on. This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink. I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty. It turns out that you cant do it. HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings. And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer. The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.
