imageCLASS MF242dw Won't Print Single-Page Documents Wirelessly, Multi-Page Docs OK


My printer will not wirelessly print single page documents. It will print multiple page documents and pages from the desktop. The printer will start powering up but it’s like the feeder will not pull the paper to print, so I know the printer receives the request wirelessly. It just will not print it. Weirdest thing ever. I’ve tried resetting the network setting and reset the router a retimes. Anyone have any advice?

  1. What app are you printing from when you run into the problem and does it happen while printing from any other apps?
  2. When you try to print the document, do you get any messages on the display of the printer or does it start to respond to the print command? If, so what messages appear?
  3. What size paper are you trying to print the single page documents on?
