Re: How to solve hanging printer problem?

I have a HP Deskjet printer attached to FC4 machine. I
have no idea why printer hangs when printing images or
long documents (like around 10 pages plus).
What I mean by hang means:
printer prints few lines and stops and printing head
goes back to parking position as if it has finished
the printing job. To eject the paper I have to cancel
the printing job and remove the power chord and put it
back again.
Is this related to CUPS driver or printer memory?

It sounds like communication failure. Are any lights flashing
on the printer? HP has a website where you can find what the
flashing lights mean.

I'd suspect that perhaps you are not using an IEEE compliant
cable, as that can cause problems like this.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
