Hi

Try and turn off the printer and unplug it for 10-12 minutes. Restart and check if it is still behaving the same way. If the printer is on a network then try and reinsert the cable and check. If this doesn't resolves the issue then restart the printer spooler. To restart the print spooler, go to Start menu-> run-> type services.msc ->select print spooler from the list -> right click on it and select restart. Now the issue would be resolved. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution. Or else post back for assistance with the model number of the printer & error/s if any.

How do I take Canon imageCLASS D320 All-In-One Laser Printer off from "paused" status?


On the printer properties on the computer there will be a paused option (Normally marked as "Pause Printing") in the printer drop down menu on the Printer Queue screen. Click this to remove the tick next to it and it should start printing again.

What does it mean that printer is on "pause"

It keeps saying memory low, what should i do


If you already sent a job to print, wait until is finished. These printers have internal memory, like the pc RAM, and if is not big enough you get this message. You can upgrade this memory to a higher capacity. If you haven't sent anything to print, check the printing queue, sometimes it has paused/stopped printing jobs that use up the internal memory.

Printer is printing foreign looking characters all on its own. No print jobs are being sent to the printer. Printer is set to DEC mode and the macro has been reloaded several times. As soon as you put the...


It sounds like data is being received by the printer from an outside source.
Try disconnecting the printer from the computer system so it is a free standing printer. Power the printer ON and put in ONLINE if you do not get strange characters printing the print job is definitely from the computer system some place.

If you do not get the print jobs printing when the printer is disconnected from the computer system, it could be that the print jobs are being sent from the wrong driver or print queue on the system, you may need to try to identify who is sending the rogue print jobs.

Sent too many labels to printer - need to reset


As the previous expert has stated, with the printer paused, press the cancel key to cancel the job. One thing to note, is depending on how your software sends the print jobs, you may say print 1000 labels, but the software sends it one at a time, so basically you have 1000 print jobs in the printer. If you pause the printer, press and hold the cancel key. Hold it for about 2 mins. This should clear the buffer.

Oki Microline 420 Network Card


As the alarm is on and steady then you most probably knocked the change lever into a position where it detects no paper loaded. The easiest way to check is to load your paper and move the change lever until the error lamp goes out!
