Sharp MX-6200N

I have a MX-6200N printer that will not print.
I restarted both the Print Spooler service, and the Windows 2003 Print Server with no luck.

I logged onto the printer itself and the current status shows "Overdue service maintenance"
Would this prevent the printer from printing?

Laser printers require a "maintenance kit" every 100,000 pages or more. This kit contains a new fuser, transfer roller, paper feed rollers etc. Most printers don't stop when the kit expires, but it's possible the Sharp does.
Until the kits been applied you can try unticking SNMP support on the webpage for the device to allow it to be available in the meantime..
Any third party accounting packages may be affected by this change though; Jobs would either be seen as full colour or not be accounted for.

Sharp's stop printing if they require service.
I had this same issue on a MX-4100N with an AS/400.  It would not print to the printer until the maintenance kit was installed.  I had tried the disabling of the SNMP at the printer, but the AS/400 would not print until I enabled it again after the Maintenance kit.
