Printer Trouble

ATTENTION: “PRINT MODE ERROR”

IF “PRINT MODE ERROR” HAPPENS THERE ARE GENERALLY TWO POSSIBILITIES…

1. PRINTER NEEDS PAPER – SEE TEACHER TO RE-FILL

2. THE PRINTER’S CONNECTION TO THE SERVER HAS CRASHED

THE MOST COMMON REASON FOR THIS IS THAT SOMETHING WAS PRINTED THAT WAS NOT STANDARD SIZE (“LETTER” OR 8 ½ x 11). THIS HAPPENS WHEN:

A. YOU ARE PRINTING BUSINESS CARDS/LETTERHEAD FOR GRAPHIC ART CLASS

B. YOU PRINT STRAIGHT FROM A WEBPAGE OR EMAIL

WHAT TO DO?

1. SEE THE TEACHER ON DUTY TO FIX THE SERVER CONNECTION

2. IF YOU WERE THE ONE PRINTING THE GRAPHICS/WEB DOCUMENTS, GO BACK TO YOUR COMPUTER, FIX YOUR PAGE SIZE AND MARGINS AND THEN RE-SEND YOUR JOB TO THE PRINTER

3. IF YOUR PRINT JOB WAS IN LINE BEHIND THE JOB THAT CRASHED THE SERVER, GO BACK TO YOUR COMPUTER AND RE-SEND YOUR PRINT JOB AFTER THE TEACHER HAS RE-SET THE PRINTER/SERVER
