The printer was working fine, printed a 20 page document and ten minutes later tried to print something else and it won't budge. Got a msg on the control panel under faxes and printers that it was ready and 5 jobs are in que. I tried turning the printer off for 15 seconds and that did nothing as well as rebooted the computer.

Can you save your document to PDF and try to print it again? Sometimes there is 'corrupt' postscript information in your file, and when you make a PDF first, it will be solved. If you do not want to make a PDF first, try to print your document page by page. It also could be a memory problem. That sometimes will be solved by shutting down your printer, wait a minute than switch it on again. So, you can try these three things: 1: Shut down your printer, wait a minute switch it on again, than try to print your document 2: Print your document page by page 3: Make a pdf of your document first, than print the pdf Succes!
Doing the "clean printhead/cartridge nozzles" multiple times would have cleared clogged nozzles. You can also try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth. If that still won't help, try to replace your cartridge with a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty.
I know that if you switch your machine on and off often it uses a lot of ink as it needs to do checks and make sure that the ink is okay and that the purge unit sucks ink okay!I am sure that you should get much more pages out of your cartridges for sure!!Try and keep your printer on and not print one page now and then ten minutes later another one,print as much pages as you can at a time!!Hope it helps!!!!
sounds like a memory issues or a windows swap file problem. when printing large docs u need to have some free memory in the computer. Also some printers 2 day used windows memory to print so if your pc only has small amount of free memory it can effect printing out large docs. also with a laptop it shares it memory with the video GPU. so you may need to upgrade your memory in your laptop .
