Question about Brother MFC-7220 All-In-One Laser Printer

Brother mcf7220 will not print..says "cancel printing" "job cancel"

It keeps saying cancel printing and job cancel. Nothing happens when i press the 'job cancel' button. The computer's print que is empty. I think the problem started when i mistakenly send a print job to the brother printer/fax rather than another printer i have. It won't print anything at all..and i don't know how to get rid of this error message. Is there a way to reset the whole machine?

I cant figure out how to cancel print jobs on my printer. Its a brother MFC 210C MFC-420CN Its been out of ink for awhile and now all of these documents are keep printing because we put ink in. I cant get...

If you are using xp click on start , then control panel, then printers and fax, double click and a small window will open showing all of your print jobs. Click on the farthest left item (on mine it says printers) then it comes with an option to cancel all print jobs, click that. I hope this helps. If that first item does not show it click on all of the options at the top till you find the one that says cancel all print jobs.

I need free support to empty memory of brother HL-2140 printer

This error occurs when your printer is dealing with a particually complicated print job and cannot process it all. Try to reduce the complexity of your document or cut the print resolution. It may be worth trying to print the document in several parts if at all possible.

I hope this helps.

Print que on hp 4300 says "printing" but nothing happens and I cannot clear que

Hello,

This is a common problem with Windows machines. If a print job gets corrupted in the print que it will stop and block all other jobs from printing. It will also block the job from being deleted normally. You have to stop the print que service and then delete the print jobs from the que. Here is a link to a full article that shows how to stop the que, delete the print jobs and restart the que to restore printing.

How to erase memory in Brother 8690 MFC - it keeps printing unwanted faxes which are stored in the memory! It is junk mail and 20 pages long and I want to cancel it. When I press "Stop" and pull the power...

Try to press and hold Job Cancel button until a message Job Cancel (All) appears. Press OK to confirm.
If not working, the next is what I found in user manual:
Remove paper from the printer to stop it printing. Turn it on, if not.
Set Remote Access Code, if not already, pressing Menu, 2, 5, 2. Enter three digits - 1, 2, 3 - for example and press OK.
Dial your fax number from a telephone or another fax machine using touch tone. When your machine answers, immediately enter your Remote Access Code (these 3 digits followed by *). If you hear one long beep, machine is saying that you still have faxes in memory. Then you hear two short beeps, that mean the machine waits your command. Use the dial pad to press 9 6 3.
If you hear one long beep, fax messages have been erased from the memory.

Won't print it always says document in queue

This sometimes happens if a print job freezes before, or during the print. I would suggest two things. Open up your print que, which you should be able to access from the bottom right hand side of your screen in your task bar. Right click, and open print que. If there is a print job in the que that says printing, try to right click on the job and cancel it. If this does not work and you have not done so already, restart your computer and your printer! Go back into the que if you have to and if the job is still there, right click and cancel job again. Then, retry printing a something different from your printer. This should solve your problem.

Printer keeps printing same file even though i want to print a different one

My friend, the computer and printer do what you tell them to.

Jobs are sent from the computer to the print Que and are printed according to the instructions you have provided. This is a very long shot. I suggest you open the print Que and see if there are any jobs pending. Sometimes jobs get stuck and are waiting for manual instruction from you. If jobs are stuck there - cancel or delete them. In a few very unusual cases, they will not cancel nor delete. What I do in this case is I remove the printer from the system, reboot my computer and reinstall the printer. I don't think this is necessary in your case, however.

Find the printer icon on the bar at the bottom of your window ... to the right side. Click on it and the que will open up. If it is not there, there are no jobs pending - so - send a job to the printer which will cause the icon to appear.

I think your trouble is you are not sending the job that you think you are. Assure the file you want is open then print it from within that application for best results.

Print job stuck in printer que

Try to power off your computer and printer and let it stay for 5 minutes. Then turn on your printer and computer to see if pending print jobs we're cancelled.

If the problem still there, you can kill the spool process running on your taskbar. Press control + alt +delete button to open the task bar and delete the process from the processes tab.

My computer keep saying my 9650 printer is out of paper but it isn't

Try this:

Connect your printer and power it on. In the flag just cancel it. If it does help, go to printer and faxes, select the printer, then cancel all printing job wait for a moment until it disappear.

If nothing happens for sometime. Feed some paper to it, say 1 piece of paper, reactivate printing job, if print then no follow up paper it will flag again out of paper. Select cancel.

If it still doesn't work switch off and on the printer and repeat the process again.


Hope it helps you
