My printer prints out everyday  a crossword puzzle, etc and I don't want them. What do I need to do to turn this feature off.

Touch the front panel, touch Apps, scroll to find uCrossword click on the checkbox to get the printing "Paused", then press the back arrow to return to the main menu.  

 

You can also set the preferences at http://www.ePrintCenter.com.

Please read this post then provide some details. What operating system? How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth?

 

What exactly is printing?  How often?

 

Did you look at the solution above?

This thread has instructions on turning off (or just pausing) apps from printing.  Read the thread, it should help resolve the issue.
