Printer empties (goes until no paper left) print tray intermittently when printing
Posted on 2008-10-08
Have the strangest problem with my otherwise good Samsung 2851ND printer. About 1 in 20 prints (say you send a 1 page print to it) it keeps chucking out pages until there is no paper left in the particular print tray.
Generally it prints out the page it should print OK, but might miss of the last bit, it then normally will go through about 30 pages (normally it leaves these blank but sometimes it prints a bit on them thus ruining them) maybe it will then print the page being printed again and then continue this until there is no paper.
It's not always exactly like above but pretty similar.
I do have the second print tray option with this printer, but I do not use it with headed company paper for fear of it ruining it all.
This happens from more then one PC on network (all running Vista)
Any ideas what could be causing this problem or how I even begin to investigate it?
Obvious things such as reinstalling latest drivers have been attempted.
Thanks for any input.
