4100 stops printing mid streem and engins continue to run
I have a LJ 4100TN that when sent a print job it just stops printing in the middle. I try the paper path test and if I set it to print 10 it prints 3 then a blank page then it continues as if it is printing but nothing comes out. What I mean there is that 3 pages print correct, then one page prints out blank and then the engines keep running indefenatly and nothing comes out. I have tried stripping it down to the minimum and also a formatter brd and same problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Symptom: Your LaserJet 4350 prints just fine until you try to print a double-sided page. Then you see the page start to exit, pull back in, then stop. The Data light continues flashing green, and the display reads, "Processing..." There is no error indication, but the machine won't print the second side and continues to hold the half-printed paper in the duplexer. If you open the top cover and close it again, the printer will eject the page, then try to print the whole thing again, unless you're quick enough to cancel the job first.
Cause: The printer is expecting a different sized paper than what it's running. Often it's not the menu settings, but a little lever in the paper tray itself. Pull out the paper tray you're trying to print from and look for a little blue lever on top of its right-hand side. The lever is labeled "Standard/Custom." Flip it to Standard (parallel to the tray side) and your problem should go away.
TONER OUT The toner cartridge has run out of toner. Depending on how the printer has been configured, it will either continue to print or stop. Due to the resolution of the toner level sensor, it is possible that a small amount of toner (less than one percent) might still be present in the cartridge. 1. If the printer has stopped, you can resume printing by pressing GO for each job. 2. Replace the toner cartridge.
If this is a recent problem that just popped up I would clear out the print que on your computer where it says "failed to print"
Turn off the printer for a few seconds then turn it back on. Wait 1 minute then try printing again. If this does not resolve the problem then do the same again but also reboot your PC. 9 times out of 10 when a printer suddenly stops printing, rebooting the printer, the PC or both will fix the problem.
If none of this works then you could have a bad network card in the 4100.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
reinstall the printer driver and clear all the print job . In run window type services.msc and the go to print spooler option just stop and restart the service. and also switch off and switch on the printer and try to cancel all the documents form print spooler it will remove all pending jobs.
You can cancel a print job from within Windows by going to Control Panel -> Printers and double-clicking on the appropriate printer. Right-click the print job you want to cancel and select Cancel from the context menu. Anything already sent to the printer will continue to print.
You can also cancel a print job from the printer by pressing Cancel on the control panel. This applies to whatever is currently printing.
(You may want to remove any paper from the paper tray first.)
Clicking the cancel print icon stops the job from continuing to spool, but whatever is still in the printer's memory will continue to print until exhaused or the job is cancelled from the printer's control panel.
