Page too Complex

When ever I try to print something it tells me "Page too Complex" but I an retry 3 or 4 times and then it will print just fine. It doens't do it everytime, only every 5th or 6th time I try to print something. And I'm not try to print anything big. I just typed in the work TEST and tried to print it and it said "Page too Complex". Can you please tell me why it is doing this?

Turn printer on.
On your printer, press the Menu button.
Press 2 (on the fax dial pad)
Press the right arrow (next to Enter button) until you arrive at "High Speed USB.
Press Enter.
Press right arrow to select "Off."
Press Enter.
Press Enter again.

The printer will reboot automatic.

I hope this help!

You can also add memory to the machine which will help. It comes stock with 96MB built in and has one open slot that you can add up to another 128MB for a total of 224MB. There is a cover on the right side of the machine which under the cover you will find the blank slot. DON'T ORDER HP MEMORY AS THE COST IS HUGE!

Order it a compatible memory. 133MHz, 100pin memory is all basically the same as it all runs at 133MHz. HP is $500.00+. The link below is about $25.00.

Sometimes you may come across this type of a problem when the device is not able to print the current page because of its complex nature.
The speed of the USB on the product needs to be lowered. This can be done by turning off the “High Speed USB”.
Given below are instructions to follow from the Secondary Service menu:

Press MENU button to access Secondary Service Menu.
Press the #2 button and use the < arrow to navigate to the High Speed USB selection. Press Enter > OFF > Enter.
Press the Cancel button twice to exit the Secondary Service Menu.

Flashing yellow light. paper does not load.


It's trying to say that the page you are trying to print is too complex.If you press the button to cintinue it may print out part of the page. Check the printer driver for print resolution settings. Change it to 300dpi and try again. Or, you could always add some extra memory to the printer. If you decide to add extra memeory, don't forget to tell the print driver it has more memory

Samsung ML 2010 under mac os X 10.5


I found a solution that worked for me by prowling around various Apple discussion forums. The two keys to the solution for me were numbers 3 and 5 below.

1. Opened print/fax preferences
2. Opened Add printer by clicking the +
3. For protocol, select HP jetdirect-socket (not IPP or LDP)
4. Determined the IP address for my Belkin wired print server and typed this into the Address line of printer setup
5. Manually selected the printer driver as ML-2010. It is in the list of drivers but is in the M's, not under the Samsung drivers.
6. This worked for me. I've seen reports from people who had to power cycle their print server and/or printer as well.

Yellow Prints in the other colors


Problem seems to be with your Ink Tank(s) or Printing Head. Replace both of them one by one and retry.

AS400 Spool files stuck in outq in send mode


I have WiFi Zebra QL420. In my case a simple header label prints fine then the complex label (many fields, barcode, lines & boxes) gets stuck. Labels are in separate spol files. We have many other labels printing fine, just this one ALWAYS gets stuck.
If I send same data from PC to printer it works fine.
I can see with ethernet sniffer that header label data goes but complex label doesn't even leave the iSeries. My sniffer is too crude to tell me what LPR level protocol is saying.
