My printer is saying Memory card Error, I dont have any memory cards in any of the slots...Please help, wont print anything, I have tried to un-plug and it doesnt change anything.

Usually it's the formatter on-board memory that is bad.
If a card has been used before, it may have bent a contact, or if pushed too hard, damaged the socket.

Wont stop printing the same thing over and over again even though I have stopped the job and removed the usb cable

Assuming you have a Windows operating system like Win XP, try the following:

Then click on the your printer iin that list - XEROX 6110

This will open the printer utility page.
In the top left hand corner of the page click on the PRINTER option.
Scroll down to the CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS option.
Just click on that and confirm YES.

That should stop the printer from printing and clear anything in its memory buffer.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

If this was at all helpful please click on the 4 Thumbs Up helpfulness rating icon you see on this page.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Printer won't take the paper

There is a little catch on the left side where the paper goes in, make sure that it is not stuck in the UP position, that will cause the printer to refuse to collect paper and send it trough the body and print. If it is down, try to use 20 pages of paper and do a PAPER FEED from your options, this will also clear it. If these fail, simply turn off the printer and let it set for 20 minutes to clear the chip memory, then start it back up. please let me know if there is anything else you might need, my pleasure to help out! GUY :)

Hello,my hp laser jet 1320 does not work correctly,I work under an office network, some time it prints and some time does not print specially about pdf files or high size files, the alert is: fail to...

Is there a typical application you are using? I noticed that file size (especially in adobe) can be an issue. If you go to printer settings (start / settings / printers / right click on the 1320 and select properties) choose device settings and the very bottom item is printer memory. I would increase this to like 80mb.... hope this helps

Hp 3005dn wont start up all the way

The unit has a bad formatter. The formatter generally comes with memory installed Part# Q7848-31004. Part is super easy to change 6 phillips head screws and 3 cables (ribbon, 6 pin, and 3 or 4 pin power) Remove formatter cover the remove formatter door by opening then lifting up, then unplug the 3 cables then remove the 6 screws. Install is reverse of removal.

Printer keeps reprinting same material

Hi Canela,
Unfortunately most printers have what is called a Cache memory. once you initiate a print job the computer loads it in to the printer, Much like filling a glass of water then the printer takes slow sips so as not to overload the job..if you decide to cancel the print job at your computer you also have to hit the stop button on the printer. In most cases this will empty that "glass" Out and clear the memory. In Vista this problem is inherent to that O.S. I'm still an Xp kinda guy. I hope this helps. Be mucho blessed.. Mark
