Re: How to solve hanging printer problem?

Hi

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.

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!
