This is likely a problem with the printer driver or the printer spooling system on your computer. Check in folder "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS". If there are files in this folder at any time when you are not expecting a printout and there were no system messages, then it is confirmed.

The easiest thing to try is to uninstall and reinstall your printer drivers. If that does not do the trick and a problem with the printer spooling system, you might be able to try uninstalling and reinstalling this feature. If this does not work or you cannot do figure out how to do it yourself, you will need a Windows expert to fix it for you.

Error 116-324 keeps coming up. i have turned machine on and off, what do I do?


1. Power off the printer using the power switch located on the right side of the printer, toward the back. Press the power switch to the off (O) position. 2. Remove all interface cables (network cable). 3. Power on the printer. Press the power switch to the on (') position. Keep interface cables disconnected. 4. Print a Configuration Page. 5. Clear all jobs from source print queue. (Network Server or USB)
The above means to delete ALL print jobs from your computers, if you have several people printing to the device they must delete all their jobs as well. 6. Reconnect interface cables after step 5 is performed.

If this deosn't resolve the issue you will have to call Xerox and request a service technician to go onsite to resolve the problem. In some cases if this doesn't fix the problem it means you have a bad network card.

I hope this helps

My cannon D680 prints a blank page after every print or copy job. the pages print fine but at the end it always feeds 1 blank page. what can it be?


See if there is an option in your settings to print a "job owner" page after each job. That's not what it's actually called but I had a similar issue with a Canon printer and found that you can have the printer automatically print a page after the job that identifies who sent the job to the printer. It's the last page so it lands on top of a finished job and separates it from other jobs sent to the printer before you have a chance to get yours. If you don't have network identifications associated with users it may just print a blank page as a separator.

Need to clear all printing jobs from the printer 4250 HP


It's probably queued up on the computer you're using. If this is Windows or Mac, look for a printer icon toward the bottom-right corner of your screen.

If you don't have it and you're on Windows, click Start: Control Panels: Printers. Find your printer.

Inside the new screen, you should be able to first pause the printer, then cancel all the jobs. You may have to highlight all of them, then right-click to get cancel.

When they're all cleared out, go back to where you paused the printer, then hit Resume printing.

I have a xerox dc12 with error message please turn machine off and on again 9-363 have tried several times but no good! what else can I do?


That's a process problem with that machine.
May require a service call .ON and OFF is pretty much all a customer can do and wait for it to setup.
NOTE: The problem occurs because of the trickle development system in the machine, making extended lengths of black and white copies / prints does not allow the black developer housing to purge itself of excess waste Toner (Dry Ink) and Developer. There are two solutions for the problem:
  • Make 1,000 copies / prints of a black and white job, then make 150 copies / prints of full color. Continue making 1,000 copies / prints of the black and white job, then 150 full color, and so on, until the entire black and white job is complete.
  • Make extended jobs in groups of 100 by making 100 copies / prints of the black and white job, then allowing the machine to cycle down (return to 'Ready') and making the next 100 copies / prints. Continue in this pattern until the entire black and white job is complete.

Cannot print only one copy; prints the first page only . . . over and over again


Check the menu and got to printing options, it may be that the number of copies got changed, you can set it up to where it can make up to 999 copies!!!!! why that option is on there is a mystery.

Using Job Accounting with Excel


Try unticking the collate box on the print window. this can cause 50 jobs to be sent rather than 50 copies of the same job.
