SOURCE: OKI B4600 Printer will not print = error - paused

Does it have a control panel or buttons on the printer itself?

If so, are any of them blinking or red?

Sometimes an error will cause a pause in the printer and you have to press one of the buttons to get it to start back up again.

This is the link to the manuf. website. I did a search on your model, theres a few so i guessed. but the manuals are available along with drivers.

I suggest you go and update them and go through the PDF and see if there is anything partaining to this issue.

I went through the PDF a bit and didnt see anything partaining to the PAUSE issue but try going through and see if anything is it.

On the printer icon on the bottom right of your task bar, right click on the printer icon and see if you can select CANCEL print job, then try unpausing it. Also, power off and then power back on and see if that clears it.

You may have to un-install the printer and re-install it and update the drivers to clear it.

Sometimes a Print job will get stuck in que when theres a jam or something and it wont continue till the issue is resolved, then you open and close the top cover and that resets it, it rechecks then continues.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Epson printer TM U220 (User Intervention Required)

I spent a good week trying to find an answer to this problem... and finally I HAVE THE SOLUTION!!


it's to do with the Port settings.

go to BIOS and change the port settings on your computer.

there are a number of different options that can be selected, just try them one by one, the one that worked for me was "Normal" try that one first, but it may be differnet depending on the printer.

if your LPT port is using it's own driver (not using BIOS to run) you cant change the settings using the BIOS. see if you can change it useing the settings for the dirver. if not try updating the driver. if that doesn't work, and nothing else works, reinstall Windows, that should fix the problem as a last resort.


good luck.

Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. It means that more than one printer is being used through LAN or WAN and printer has not been shared with both the computers. You'll need to share the printers being used and the issue will be resolved.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

How can I fix the issue when my printer says "User intervention required?"


I'd guess you have a paper jam, maybe even tiny piece.
Check error message on printer's panel. try turn off for 10min.
turn back on. Users manual on software install CD may help understand message.

Amber light on oki c3300 continues to flash and printer will not print


Here's what the owner's manual has to say:

Error status (Amber, blinking): you cannot continue to use the
printer. Intervention is required to recover from the error. Fatal
errors are irrecoverable and require a service call.

Blinking 1 (2S cycle)
An error has occurred but
printing can continue if you
press the ON LINE or CANCEL
switch.

Blinking 2 (500mS cycle)
An error has occurred. You
need to replace consumables
or remove jammed paper, for
example. The printer then
recovers from the error and
printing becomes possible
again.

Blinking 3 (120mS cycle)
A serious error has occurred.
rebooting or a service call is
required.

The Status Monitor in Windows provides a readable description
of the printer status corresponding to the indications of the
LEDs. In Mac, the printer driver provides status information
once you have sent a document to print. In Windows, if you
have the Status Monitor Preferences set to Pop up on alerts,
this readable message will be presented on screen whenever
an abnormal condition occurs.

There's no further information. Sorry.

Clear pause printing
  1. From the Windows Desktop, select Start , Settings , and Printers .

  3. Select the Work Offline or Pause Printing option (if enabled) to remove the check.

Establish parallel connection
  1. Turn off the printer or remove the printer from the network.
  2. Connect the printer to the PC using a parallel cable.
  3. Power on the printer.
  4. Print the document again. NOTE: If the User Intervention Required message reappears, disable or remove any HP LaserJet software utilities loaded on the system (for example, Status Window, HP Toolbox, etc.). Prove printer functionality and troubleshoot communications; try printing again.
Uninstall and reinstall the driver After performing a cold reset on a product installed with USB, a higher DOT4_00x port is created, causing the printer to hang while printing. NOTE: This is required with products installed on a USB port only.
  1. Uninstall the USB printer driver.
  2. Remove the HP folder and AIO folder from the hard drive.
  3. Reinstall the USB printer driver.
CAUSE: This error can occur if when using a network or printing from a laptop. When the print job goes into a pending status, the printer is either in Work Offline or Pause Printing mode. Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
