Hi,

Sometimes, this may be due to some administrator of the printer setting it to be manually operated. In this case, u may have to go and press some buttons on the printer after giving print from ur pc.

If not, it may be waiting for some minimum spool memory to be consumed, for starting an economic printing. This normally happens, when u give manual / automatic duplex during printing.

I hope my suggestions were helpful

:)

bye

Have a nice day

Try to printing a configuration page from the print board if this works check all your network cables then try to PING the copier by...
Go to START on computer
then RUN
then type "cmd"
then type ping
press the space bar once
then the ip address in full and press return
if your network is ok you should get a signal return
and NOT a timed out message
If your network is ok
Try deleting the printer and re-loading the print driver making sure the IP address is the same as the one on the configuration page.

If you require more help please get back to me

The first 6 copies print quickly, then it goess to "slow motion" for rest of print job. How can I get the printer to print at the same speed


My guess would be that the quick printing at first is because the print job get spooled into a buffer and when the buffer is full the print job starts. The printer begins printing and using the buffer data as the computer continues to process the job and supply the buffer. At some point the buffer gets empty and the printer is waiting on the computer for more data, causing the slowdown. This rarely happens anymore, unless you have a very old printer or very old computer, as most printers have a rather large internal buffer memory. You may be experiencing issues with connectivity if the printer is being used wirelessly. Check to ensure that the wireless signal is strong to ensure maximum data throughput capability.

While having a live chat i was informed the text would go to my print buffer....fine @! But I don't know what that is or how to access it. Can you help me ?


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

The print buffer is an area where the printer stores a small list of the instructions given by the user ahead of what it is doing in real time (for example you can press print for 2 or 3 different documents while the printer is printing the first one and the printer will keep and remember the information for the subsequent documents in its buffer and print them in sequence, when it has finished printing the current document).

Feel free to add a comment to this question to explain the problems you are having with your printer, if this answer does not cover your specific problem.

Your printer has a small memory cache built into it that can store several pages of printing and print instructions ahead of what it is printing in real time. In the event of an error the memory cache can become full and be in a state where it accepts no more instructions.

If this happens:

Start (Contorl Panel) > (category View) > Hardware & Sound > Printer > double click on yhe printer's icon > highlight and cancel any documents pending > power off the printer > disconnect the printer cable > restart the computer > power the printer on > reconnect th eprinter cable > test print.

I hope this helps.

The printer is not printing receipts and the error indicator is blinking on and off, what is the solution to this?


Flashing (approx. once every second): Out of paper
Flashing (approx. twice every second): Mechanical error (Buzzer sounds once.)
Most likely your paper feed is giving you the error. Remove the current feed, ensure there are no paper jam & insert fresh paper.
If
Mechanical Error :: Quick blinking Buzzer Sounds continuously for a pprox. 1 second :: Reset the Power
switch

Paper End Blinks.:: Buzzer Repeats a short 3-time sound twice at intervals of 0.5 second.:: Set a new paper roll.
Paper Near End Blinks.(Once a second) :: buzzer Repeats a short 3-time sound twice at intervals of 0.5 second.:: Set a new paper roll.

Mechanical Error : If the printer mechanism has a greater load due to a paper jam, etc., the buzzer will sound and the SEL/ERROR lamp will blink to stop the printer mechanism.
Paper End : If the printer has run out of paper, the paper sensor in the paper path near the print head will detect the end of the paper roll, turn on the buzzer, and blink the SEL/ERROR lamp to stop the printer mechanism. If the paper is inserted into the paper path, the paper will be loaded.
Paper Near End : If the paper is running out, the paper near end sensor will be activated to turn on
the buzzer and make the SEL/ERROR lamp blink. Even after the paper near end is detected, a command can be used to print by the specified number of lines. (See a description on the command for setting the number of print lines after paper near end detection)
Finally
Backup Data Clear : When the power is turned on, depending on the SEL switch operation, the
backup data in the input buffer will be cleared according to the flowchart on the next page.
To clear the input buffer, turn on the power while pressing the SEL switch.
The following messages will be printed.
"Clear Data in Buffer"
"Cleared Data in Buffer"
To print the data in the input buffer, simply turn the power on.
The following message is printed and the data in the input buffer is printed.
"Power Down(Data in Buffer)

Konica minolta pagepro 1350w fatal print spooler error?does that mean i need a new toner cartridge or is the damn thing busted?


A 'print spooler' is a range of memory either internal to the printer (sometimes called 'buffer memory') or set aside from the RAM in your system. A fatal error normally means the material you tried to print has been lost and must be sent to the printer again. If the error continues to show up, you may have bad printer memory or perhaps the driver software in your system has gotten stepped on by the operating system and needs to be reinstalled. Windows loves trashing files to keep life exciting.
This problem is not related to the drum or toner cartridge.

KX-P1124 Dm Printer -- Cannot clear the buffer, keeps printing garbage


Put one page in printer and tape paper so it will not feed as buffer print out data on paper.
May take one minute or one hour, that depends on how many times you hit the enter on keyboard
You must let the printer keep printing no matter if it is one word or one letter. Some old printer do not have cancel on printer, only thru computer or program. I have three in serv. from the 70's
A buffer happen and will always happen after it get information from computer. It takes many sheet of paper

Printing labels


Error 23 is "Image not found". You could try to increase the Image buffer size (in the front panel, "Setup, Service", "Memory Alloc", "Image Buff Size". I'd try to decrease the Rec and Trans buffers by 50kb to make 100kb available to add to the Image buf.

According to Kodak, that error just means the cover was open. I noticed when I print a diagnostic sheet that error shows up whenever I change the ink.
