Most likely paper size is wrong and when the button is pushed on the printer it's just saying to keep printing no matter what size the paper is on the printer.
Please change the paper type on the printer settings to A4

I hope i was of any help to you. If so, please rate me.
Thank you.

I have a Samsung SCX-5635 multi-function printer/copier/fax & scanner. It worked great with my old IBM desktop computer running XP. However, a few days ago I upgraded to a new HP custom built HP...


Are you sure the driver is set to A4 paper and not Letter Size. Letter size is the default. Letter size being larger than A4 would mean the print would be off the bottom so you wont see it. Could be as simple as that.

My printer is not responding to when i ask to print something.


If the printer is not printing, check the cables connecting the printer and the computer. Make sure it is properly connected. Check the settings on your computer if printer is set as a default printer and try printing a test page from the driver page. To do this open printer and faxes, right click on the printer >properties and click the button print test page.

If you are able to print a test page, check the settings of your application and make that the correct printer is selected.

How to solve 'error S01'?


1. Verify USB cable is connected directly from USB port of printer and the USB port on back of computer. If not, connect directly to both the printer and computer and try to print. If the printer does not print, go to step 3.
2. VERIFY THAT THE BROTHER PRINTER IS SET AS DEFAULT
This is especially important if you use the print icon to print from within applications. If the Brother printer is set as the default printer, it will have a check mark. If it is not set as default:
To set your Brother machine as the default printer, RIGHT CLICK on the Brother printer and select SET AS DEFAULT (PRINTER).
3. VERIFY THAT THE PRINTER STATUS IS READY AND THE PRINT QUEUE IS EMPTY
A. Click on START, RUN
B. Type: CONTROL PRINTERS and click OK.
C. Locate the Brother printer in the list and hover your mouse over the Brother printer icon. Below is an example of what you may see:
Status: Ready (Could also state: USE PRINTER OFFLINE or PAUSED)
Documents: 0 (Could be any number)
D. If there are any documents waiting in the queue, right-click on the Brother printer and select CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS, depending on your operating system. This should clear the queue.
E. If the status states: USE PRINTER OFFLINE, right-click on the Brother printer and select USE PRINTER ONLINE depending on your operating system. This should set the printer driver ONLINE.
F. If the status states: PAUSED, right-click on the Brother printer and uncheck PAUSE PRINTING. This should allow the printer to resume printing.
G. If the status is ready and no documents are in the queue, attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful, verify the selected port. If USB is the selected port follow step 4. If USB is not selected,change the port to USB, then attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful proceed to step 4.
4. Turn the printer OFF.
5. Close any open programs.
6. Click Start, Run, type: control printers
7. Right click Printer, left click Cancel All Documents (if available). Confirm if necessary (click OK).
8. Right click Printer, left click Delete. Confirm if necessary (click OK).
9. Left click File menu, left click Server Properties, left click Driver tab, left click print model name, left click Remove button, click Confirm.
10. Close the Print Server Properties window to return Printers and Faxes window.
11. Check that the USB cable is properly connected at both ends.
12. Turn the printer ON.
13. Wait until printer has ready light or green status, watch the Printers and Faxes window to see if printer is automatically reinstalled.
14.a. If printer was automatically reinstalled, right click Printer icon, left click Properties, left click Print Test Page button. If the printer is not automatically reinstalled, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437).
b. If printer was not automatically reinstalled, try a new USB cable. Ifthe printer still is unable to print, call Brother Customer Service at1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437).

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check that your printer has paper, has no paper jams and is currently set on the ‘use printer online’ settings by right clicking property and then setting it from there. Also please check that you have selected the correct default printer and drivers in the printer options. If there is any paper jams clear it. You can also check the few things like---
Please check that both ends of the cable which connects the printer to the computer are connected properly. To print a test page right click on printer properties and then click the 'Print Test Page' button and see if you get a test page printed properly. If you do, this indicates that the printer is properly connected to the computer and the computer has the drivers installed.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Printer will not print. I recently relocATED my computer, and now it doesn't print. I reinstalled the cd.. and I see my printer in the control panel, and it prints a test page.... but it wont print...


Could be a couple things, but if the test page prints it always means software/driver issue. If you're sure the driver is correct, here are some things I would check.
  1. Is acrobat reader installed? Quickbooks prints some things to and from PDF to the printer.
  2. Are you using a PCL driver on a PS printer or vice versa. Many applications, websites, etc require postscript.
  3. What default printer have you set, Windows will print to the default printer from applications but a specific printer when making a test page and you could be printing to MS imaging accidently.

Aagggghhh im gonna throw it through the window lol


Kor, Did you download the new drivers? or were there custom settings and you set them back to default?. Is there any debris on the printer resume button?i.e. is it stuck at all? Try unplugging the printer for a few minutes and turning off the computer. Wait 5 minutes and turn on the printer and reboot the computer. If that doesn't work... Have you checked your computer for a virus. www.filehippo.com has an awesome collection of "ALL" kinds of free(to the home user) software. Virus cleaners, spyware, adware removal etc. Let me know what happens. Good luck, Tim
