Question about SATO M-8450 Printer

5 Answers

I was printing a job and had reworked the document and wanted to print it again, but, all of a sudden, the printer does not print or copy anything. All the cables are securely fastened. I have plenty of ink and all the lights on the control panel are on and there are no messages on the front display to indicate any problems. Now I have several jobs stacked up waiting to print but can't print them. Would like your help in diagnosing and fixing the problem. Thank you.

First delete all of the jobs, my printer does the same thing, try restarting the printer and unplugging the cables and replugging them in, uninstall and reinstall the drivers and see if that helps, no idea why it happens, it just does.

I think It is your software for the printer! If you have the installation cd for the printer, Try installing it again and checking. It could be the software has got corrupt!

I have a manul I'm wanting to print, but now I don't want to print it. How do I stop it? And also it is printing little boxes (Not the words) What do I do about that?


Runaway print jobs are always a pain! First, power off your printer to stop it from wasting paper. If the power button doesn't work, pull its plug. That will stop the printing for now but your print job will probably restart when the power is resumed.

Whether you are using a PC or Mac, documents that you send to the printer are managed by a printer management service which is responsible for printing documents in the correct order and handling any printer problems that occur. When the printer is turned off, any documents you print will be saved (queued) for printing when the printer starts again. To fix your runaway printing problem you simply need to delete the copy of your large document that is still queued for printing.

On Windows you will see a small icon on the toolbar at the bottom right of your screen that looks like a printer. When you click on the icon you should see a window appear which has the name of your printer in the title bar (e.g. HP Deskjet) and a list of any documents waiting to be printed. To delete a print job, simply right-click on the document name in the list and select "Cancel". When asked "are you sure you want to cancel the document" click on YES and the document will be deleted from your printer queue. Repeat this for all documents in the list until it is empty, then you can restart your printer.

The process on a Mac is similar and even easier since you will see a bouncing printer icon with an exclamation point on it on your toolbar. Click on that icon to see the print queue, click on the document you want to delete and press the DELETE key to remove it.

I just replaced 2 of the ink cartridges, and now the printer isn't printing anything at all on the paper. I ran the clean printerhead function, and it printed the results of that. But, when I go to...


Make sure the problem isnt with the PC, print a document but dont send it to the printer, print it to a document(it will be listed as shown here)d_schrute_3.png
If the document contains the text/pictures you wanted to print then the job is spooling properly. Make sure your printer drivers are up to date by downloading the latest from HP Customer Care. Also try copying what you want or screen shotting it and pasting it into word or another program like paint or notepad.

Keep printing old docoments / will not print current docoment / printing seem to be strunt


Follow these steps to fix your problem :

Method A :
Press the cancel button or use the cancel menu command on the printer
The most obvious way to cancel a print job is to find a cancel button or a cancel menu command on the printer and to press it. So, if you have not already done this, try this method first.

If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article. However, you may want to read the "Prevention tips" section to avoid this problem in the future.

If your printer does not have these items or if this method did not work for you, try Method B.

Method B:
Turn the printer off and on
Next, try turning the printer off and then on. With certain printer models, this cancels the print job.

If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article. However, you may want to read the "Prevention tips" section to avoid this problem in the future.

If this method did not work for you, turn your printer off, and then try Method C.

Method C:
Use Control Panel to cancel printing
This method is a bit fancier. We will use Control Panel to try to cancel printing.

But what exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to cancel printing only a single document, or are there other print jobs that you want to cancel? And are all the print job yours, or are there print jobs that other people have sent to the printer? If you have to cancel documents that other people have sent to the printer, you must have Computer Administrator status or you must have permission to cancel the print jobs. If you are using your own printer, you most likely have Computer Administrator status. If you are printing to a shared printer, you might have to ask the system administrator to cancel the print job for you.

To cancel one or more print jobs, follow these steps.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type control printers, and then click OK.
3. Right-click the icon for your printer, and then click Open.
* To cancel individual print jobs, right-click the print job that you want to cancel, and then click Cancel.
* To cancel all print jobs, click Cancel All Documents on the Printer menu.

Note If you cancel a print job that you did want to print, make sure that you send the print job to the printer again.

If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article. However, you may want to read the "Prevention tips" section to avoid this problem in the future.

If this method did not work for you, make sure that your printer is turned off, and then try Method D.
Back to the top
Method D: Stop the print spooler and delete all spooled files
If you tried Methods A through C and you were not successful, Method D should work for you. If you came to Method D immediately only to delete a print job, some of what we say here might not apply to you, so please bear with us.

Method D is somewhat more complex and will require a bit more work than the other methods, but don't worry. Method D looks much more difficult than it really is.

First, in case that you don't know how printing works, here is a short explanation. Print jobs are sent to the printer as spooled files. This means that the files are put in a temporary location so that the printer can access a print queue and print jobs at its own speed. If you stop the spooler and its files, most of the time, you both cancel printing and delete the print job.

Note To use this method, you must have Computer Administrator status. If you are using your own printer, you most likely have Computer Administrator status. If you are printing to a shared printer, you might have to ask the system administrator to cancel the print job for you.
Step 1: Start Notepad
To stop the print spooler and its files, we will have you create and run a script file that will automatically stop the service. This sounds difficult, but it really isn't. Just follow these steps carefully.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type notepad, and then click OK. Notice that a blank Notepad document opens.

Step 2: Copy a command script to Notepad
Now we will have you copy and paste some commands to the Notepad document.

1. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text:
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler
2. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy.
3. In Notepad, right-click in the blank document, and then click Paste.
4. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text:
C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd
5. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy.
6. In Notepad, click Save As on the File menu.
7. In the File Name box, right-click, and then click Paste.
8. Click Save.

Step 3: Run the command script file
Now that you have created the command script file, you will run it. To run it, you will copy and paste the name of the command script file in the Run box.

1. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text:
C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd
2. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy.
3. Click Start, and then click Run.
4. In the Open box, right-click, and then click Paste.
5. Click OK.
6. Notice that the Command Prompt window opens to run the command script file that you created. Notice also that this window closes automatically when the command script file has finished running. If you do not see the Command Prompt window open, check that you saved the command script file by using the correct name and that you entered the correct command script file name in the Run box.

If this method does not work the first time, or if you cannot print anything after you use this method, restart your computer, and then try again.

If so, the ph is ok. Do repair the mfl-pro suite then. If you run the machine thru a network a firewall update might have disconnected the machine from routing.
