Questions about this item:

Dwaine T  This printer is shared with other computers. Someone else printed a 20 page document 5 times and it tied the printer up for quite some time. I tried to stop it from the computer the printer was connected to but no print jobs showed up. Is there a button or buttons on the printer itself that will stop a print job?
LEON S  unplug the data line, turn the printer off & on, re plug the data line and the buffer should be cleared. you need to "clear the buffer". Leon Saperstein Federal Pipe & Supply Co., Inc. 6464 E. McNichols Rd. Detroit, MI ph #313.366.3000 fax#313.366.6466
