HP 3940 Not Printing

When I send a print job to the 3940 it appears in the print job window very briefly saying that it is spooling and then it disappears never to be seen again. Can't get it to print anything. Not sure what to do.

How to solve hp laserjet p2015 printer problem show excamation


If you are recieving memory errors, it is because the information you are sending to the printer is too large for it's internal memory to process. There are a number of things you can do.


- install more memory into the printer if your printer allows that (check your user guide)

- send smaller jobs (if sending multiple page jobs - break them into smaller counts)

- Make sure to use the PS driver for pdf and photo printing, and the PCL driver for plain text.


Also, in the Printers and Faxes window (can be found in the control panel if it isn't on your menu) right click on the icon for your printer and select properties. Select the Advanced tab and make sure these two settings are marked


- Spool print documents do document finishes printing faster

- Start printing immediately

Problem Print job does not print; No Lexmark job status window Solution What you will see


  • The Windows print queue spools the print job.
  • The print queue icon appears in the systray or notification area.
  • The print queue icon disappears as if the print job has successfully been sent to the printer.
  • The print job disappears and does not print.
  • No Lexmark job status window appears to indicate a communication problem.
  • No other communication errors. This issue is most likely due to a corrupt device mode registry entry from another printer that was installed and used in the past.
Or
  • You do see the job status window and you do not see any alerts or communication errors, yet still nothing gets printed

What to do

A confirmed cause must be established before a resolution can be achieved.
To do this:

  1. download a diagnosis tool that will help determine the cause of the printing issue.
    IMPORTANT: Again, this tool is only to be used in cases where there is no communication error message from the Lexmark job status window and the job spools quickly through the Windows spooler, yet nothing prints.
  2. Select an easy-to-find Save location, such as your Windows Desktop.
  3. Double-click on the delserDevMode.exe file.
  4. Accept the License Agreement. After the file is executed, it saves devmode.txt to your root directory (e.g., C:\devmode.tx.

The print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing im receiving this error message i have a hp c 4580 printer


If one job isn't printing, cancel it, and let the other one's print. I read somewhere there is a 2GB limit on print spool jobs...and if you reach that limit, everything locks up. I am not sure on it...but if you have a realy large document, either print it alone, well, just print it alone. Try to spool your print jobs from the smallest ones first, and don't overload it. The is especially true of printing pictures...because if you don't resize them, they can be especially large files (and large pictures) sometimes you don't realize that what you are viewing on screen is only 26% of the actual picture size...especially if you have say, a 8MP or higher camera pixel size capability.

HP P1005 PRINT JOB SITS IN QUE, WO'T PRINT


Does it show "Printing" or "Spooling" in the job queue window?

Open the Job queue window, then highlight and cancel the print job. Send a small print job to the printer and make sure that the PC and the printer are communicating.

If the failure re-occurs, then clear the queue again and close it and restart i=the queue.

Deleting - Printed


I've also had this problem with an HP LaserJet 4650dtn printer. I've solved this by: - Stop the "Print Spooler" service. - Delete all the existing print spool files. (Stored in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS" by default). - Start the "Print Spooler" service. - Right-click the printer's icon in the Printers and Faxes folder and choose Properties. - Click the Advanced tab. - Click the Print Processor... button. - Make a note of the existing "Print processor" selection on the left (in case you need to revert it.). Then change it to "WinPrint". Click OK. - Click OK on the printer's properties window. - Try sending a print job to see whether it persists in the print queue.
