I have been having troubles with my printer. When i go to print it says it is processing data to the printer which is fine. But than it stops after a while and nothing is produced from the printer.Is this a computer problem or a printer problem?
Could you please help me and assist me as to what to do??
This is a printer problem try one of these solutions:
the following solutions in the order presented to resolve the problem.
It might not be necessary to complete all of the solutions.
Solution one: Check the time it takes to print a sample page
Follow these steps to print a sample page and time how long it takes to print.
Begin timing when the paper feed rollers start pulling in the paper to
start printing, not when the first noises come from the product. Stop
timing when the printed page falls into the paper tray.
Press the Power button (
) to turn the product on.
Press and hold the Resume button (Printer responding but nothing printing!!!! - c01324470.gifloads/images/c01324470.gif" alt="c01324470.gif" class="h_mi" />
When the producPrinter responding but nothing printing!!!! - c01324470.gifting, release the Resume button (
If the sample page takes
significantly longer than 30 seconds
, there might be a hardware problem. Continue to the next step.
Solution two: Check the power supply
Unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
Remove any devices in between the product and the power outlet, such as surge suppressors or power strips.
Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet.
Repeat the steps in Solution one to determine if the issue is related to the power supply.
If the page prints in
less than or close to 30 seconds
, the problem is related to the power supply. Replace devices in
between the product and the power outlet, or leave the product
connected directly to the wall outlet.
If the page takes
significantly longer than 30 seconds
, continue to the next step.
Solution three: Check the print cartridges
Turn the product on and open the cover to view the print cartridges.
I had this problem and it is not a Vista issue, as I dual boot Vista and XP. The same exact thing was happening on both, the printer would **** the paper in, but stop and then time out and display the error.
I stumbled on the solution totally by accident on amazon.com's reviews.
I found that the USB 2.0 setting in the BIOS was at fault. I changed the BIOS to 1.1 and it worked immediately.
It has it's negatives, but the printer works now.
A coworker suggested using a 1.0 USB hub instead of changing the BIOS, but I haven't tried that option yet.

it means that the printing order for the memory for the printer is full
go to control panel , go to printers and hardware , click on printer right click and it will show a section see what is printing
high light each line and delete that takes away the priority of the stack until there is nothing left to print and the printer should again print at the next selection you make
How the program works is this
there is a small memory in the printer and a large one in the pc
when you have data that is to be printed, the pc sends the data until the printer memory is full at which stage the printer starts to print. new data is sent as memory space becomes available until the document is printed
when different data is requested to be printed or there is a hiccup in the process the pc looses the priority in the print list ( page number or new document)and so backs up that memory and becomes blocked
by going into the pc in the printer hard ware and deleting the printing waiting to be processed your are unblocking the process and allowing the pc to again move data to be printed
Again in broad terms.
When you see processing data that could be a sign that the internal processor is trying to make sense of the information you sent to it.
I've seen Xerox printers saying processing data and nothing appears before.
It could be anything from a bad file sent to the printer, that it can't deal with or print because you don't have a PDF license perhaps.
The other helpful thing would be to see if your error sheets have been turned off. I know it is usually a wast of paper but it might be a clue as to why no print appears apter processing your file/print.
Consider this, the printer I have is sat quiet with a window saying ready to print and yet the fuser is quite cold. The only thing that can wake it up is a genuine print. Now if it's cold all the time then you should have a 'Fuser Error'
Again, sorry to be so vague but without being on site it's difficult to get to the bottom of your query.
The local Xerox engineer or concessionaire should be really helpful.
Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.
Hi, The Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
What you can do is: ·Resetting the PrinterBy resetting the printer's power, the print buffer is cleared and certain sensors are reset. If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur.Follow these steps to reset the printer:
Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .
Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).
Turn the printer back on.
·Ink Absorber Replacement Options This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
The data size of the image is large and it takes longer to process it
for printing. Printing will start as soon as the data processing
If the paper error indicator flashes on the LCD:
The paper is jammed. Turn off the printer and turn it on again, take
out the paper tray, and then remove the jammed paper from the paper
outlet. If you cannot remove the jammed paper, consult with your Sony
dealer or service facility.
If no indicator is lit or flashing:
The thermal head may be overheated. Leave the printer until the head cools down and the printer resumes printing.
