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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

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.
