Printing Problems Troubleshooting

What Happened:

My Print job did not show up at the print station after I sent it to the printer

What to Try:
  • Are you actually logged onto the computer you are working from? Did the last person to use the computer forget to log off?
  • If you are:
    • Trying to print a document from OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Amazon Cloud Drive? It could be a case where the document must be downloaded before it can be printed.

    • The job sent to the printer is a large file and is taking a while to print. Sometimes large print jobs take a while to get to the print server.

    • At the time a job was sent to the printer, a larger number of print jobs were also being sent and the printer queue is backed up.

    • Someone has sent a print job that has gotten stuck in the print system.

    • There is a print job that is stuck in the print queue on the local computer.

    • The print server is down.

    • The network is down.

Error Message Codes:

  • Wrong Paper size. The printers only print 8 1/2" x 11" documents. You'll have to adjust your document to fit.  

My Color Print job did not print

Possible Reason Why:
  • Large color print jobs over 10 pages must be printed 10 pages at a time. Anything larger will not print. This ensures you do not spend your money on color print jobs that are printed in error.
