Not printing When a job is submitted the printer just feeds paper continuosly. Nothing ever prints. When you check the job status it will say 25% complete. I have to turn the printer off for it to stop. I have not yet been able to print from my computer on this device.

This solved the problem for me. It assumes that you have only one Epson printer. (If you have more than one, you'll have to reinstall all of them.)

First delete your current printer. (Apple menu >> System Preferences >> Print & Fax. Select the printer and delete it.)

1. In the Finder, Go to /Library/Printers (Use the "Go" menu. Select "Go to Folder..." Type: /Library/Printers and click "Go")

2. Find the Epson folder and trash it.

3. Now go to /Library/Receipts and trash EpsonPrinterDrivers.pkg (or something like that; I'm relying on memory)

4. Empty the Trash and restart. (Epson recommends this.)

5. Fetch the CX6000 driver from the Epson site: [www_epson_com]

6. Install the software, then restart your computer (even though the installer does not prompt you to do this).

7. In System Preferences >> Print and Fax, click the "+" to add a printer. If the printer is connected directly to your computer, it should automatically select the correct driver.

I went through a series of tedious support calls to get this info. The problem is a conflict between different Epson drivers. In other words, Epson rushed their software out the door without adequate testing, so you have to go through all these extra steps to accommodate their errors.

Two things come to mind. One, ensure that you have a direct connection to the printer (no hub) and that the cable is about 6-10 ft long. Two, it may may be the driver installation. Often deleting and reinstalling a driver from Epson's website may help. Ensure you install the driver FIRST before plugging in the printer.

It means that the paper source selected in the print job was the Bypass tray (Manual Feed). You should be able to insert paper in the tray and press OK or Continue to start printing.

You can put special media on side bypass feed tray. Then select paper type/thickness. Choose the bypass tray and paper type when sending print job from your PC. Job status light will blink and you need to go to the copier to execute the print job for special paper.

Cannot empty the print que print jobs on IMac status is Deleted, except for last line which says "printing", but it is not printing

This is most likely because an error with the printer is making it impossible to delete the final print job. The most common error is no paper or a paper jam. Look for blinking lights on the printer and any error messages. Feed more paper if necessary. Once you fix the problem, reset the printer or press the blinking button.

Printer won't print documents. Green light on

Hmmm, try feeding a sheet of paper into the manual feed slot... you might have inadvertantly sent a Manual feed job, and the printer is waiting for a sheet to be fed by you.

The print job says out of paper, but there is paper loaded. When I submit the job, it does nothing, and after a few minutes I get the out of paper error

Check to be sure that the paper size matches between the application you are printing from and the printer. If the printer is set for letter and the document requests legal for example then this would be normal behavior.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer

A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

Lexmark x1240 printer will not print.

Keep your paper feed under 15 pages. The paper will tend to pull to the right, but it will print correctly on the printed page. 20 to 25 pages in the feeder will result in a paper jam. To find the status on the print job, go to your control conter and hit printers. Choose your spicific printer and you may beable to save the printjob.

Msg:supply rec paper

Ya, I had that same problem too; I was printing something that was over printing margins, and then i had the message "supply rec. paper......" on the lcd screen. I ended up fixing the problem by clearing/canceling all the documents i was printing on my computer, and clearing/canceling all the documents saved inside the MEMORY OF THE PRINTER (note the green light with the "memory, in use" which means it's probably still trying to print the document that's too big, so it wont print anything else). (<--- not sure if that was your problem, but it was mine)

Anyways, to clear the memory inside the printer, i pressed the "status monitor" button located to the left of the "B&W start" button, and then i scrolled over to "print status, select job to cancel" and canceled all jobs, and then once i canceled all jobs, the alarm disappeared, and it was fixed XD
