Controlling print jobs



Print a Configuration page and Supplies Status page at the all-in-one control panel. See

Information pages

Check the Supplies Status page to see if any supplies are low or empty. No information is
provided for non-HP print cartridges. (HP LaserJet 3390/3392 all-in-one)

Try printing from a different program. If the page prints correctly, the problem is with the
program from which you were printing.


Restart the computer and the all-in-one and try printing again. If the problem is not resolved,
