Printer -Printing more than once

By leinweber ·
Hi I have a network printer that prints approx. 25 times. When you hit print, the window says one copy and feeds out about 25. Is there a setting somewhere I don't know about? The printer continues printing even after I canel the print job. The only way it stops is if I turn the printer off. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

WHat operating system are you on? What kind of printer is it? Can the network admin remount the printer service on the server?

when you want to print, use file, print and check the COPIES box. the last person that used it probably set it to 25 and never changed it back. The next session should be fine.
The reason it keeps printing after you cancel is that the print job is in the printer buffer already and does not the print manager to finish.

You did not indicate what printer, but since it is a network printer, I am assuming that it is a laser. Check the printer setups, usually accessable by the buttons on the printer. You can set the number of copies on the printer so that it will freeup your computer sooner. Check in your manual for the access/menu item.

Good Luck
