Our HP is on our network which we have 2012 windows server. at least once a week we have the problem with the machine giving us a "user intervention" error. i have to cancel all jobs, and restart the services. it is not a huge deal, but still a pain. we have 8 users who print to it frequently all day.

When the problem happens, are there any messages on the printer's display?

I would remove the printer driver completely, and then reinstall. HP are a pain as different printers need to be done differently.

First delete the driver from Devices & Printers. Then, see if you can Uninstall it (from Control Panel). If it's not in the list of programs, go back to Devices & Printers, select any other printer and click on "Print server properties". Click the Drivers tab and remove the M602 from the list.

Then reinstall. If using a server this needs to be done on the server. If the PCs print direct to the printer, you need to do it on every PC that has the problem.
