you must be using Windows 7 64 bit.. MS took edit out

if you know where manfeed.pjl is you can open a txt file and drag it to that to edit (ensure you save it as the same name not manfeed.pjl .txt

Having to press the Go button usually means that the printer is told to print to an invalid combination of tray, paper size and paper type.

Check printer settings and compare them with the paper installed. Note that in Word you need to check that from Page Setup.
