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.

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.

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.
