Printing Problems:

If you are printing something and a problem occurs, here are some suggestions that will make life easier on the other people trying to print: 

Do not just turn the printer off and leave. Instead, think about:

  • Deleting your bad job from the print queue. Only you (and the network administrator) can delete your print job. If you do not delete your print job and someone else can not find the network administrator to remove the job, no one can print.  Please, if there is a problem with the printer (including paper jams), DO NOT TRY TO FIX IT YOURSELF.  Instead, ***send an e-mail to support [at] econ [dot] umd [dot] edu notifying us of the problem.***
  • If all else fails, leaving a note on the printer.
  • Never put used paper in the printer paper tray. This will cause more problems than it saves trees. Walk down to the ECON office and retrieve new paper.
  • If the printer runs out of ink, please send an e-mail to support [at] econ [dot] umd [dot] edu and request that we install a new ink cartridge.

Please help the Department by printing sparingly and do not use the network printers for personal print jobs!
