Printer Paused

When I try to print on Laser Jet 2300 the printer goes on Pause.

 

I have the printer for many yearsa and never had any problem, until 2 days ago.

 

Any help welcomed

Re: Printer Paused

Simplest answer: Restart your computer and printer.

If a Mac is left on it may cause the print system to stop sending jobs to the printer.

Re: Printer Paused

I got the same problem after installing MacOS 10.6.6. on my MacBookPro. My HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 became "Paused" .

 

Solution:

In system settings / control panels select print&fax.

Remove your old printer from the list using the "-" button (guess it is marked with a yellow spot)

Select an reinstall your printer using the "+" button.

Re: Printer Paused

Actually it is just a "-" and "+" below your printers list.

 

Do not use the yellow spot, that is a minimize button on a mac.

Re: Printer Paused

What does that have to do with anything?

It was the USB router so I bypassed it and now things are OK

Re: Printer Paused

Read the post above mine.

 

I'm assuming by "USB Router" you either mean USB hub or that you had the printer plugged in via a USB to an Airport... Either way, that could definitely cause it.  Glad everything is resolved for you Smiley Very Happy

Re: Printer Paused

"Google", download, and install the HP Print and Scan Doctor.  Once I ran the program, and it diagosed and fixed the paused printer problem.
