Jiya. I'm new to the site so I hope someone can help me. I have a Toshiba A100-02L T5300 laptop with Microsoft Vista, if that's important, and A Lexmark 640 series printer. It's been printing ok so far, but yesterday I couldn't print. When I click on the printer icon for specifications and go into the print queue, it says at the top of the box, "Lexmark 640 series - paused". Whatt does this mean and how do I un-pause it? I hope someone can help as I have some important work to print out. The Lexmark is set as the default printer. Please help me. Thanks. John.

Hi and welcome

A few things you could try:

Go to Start Menu > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes. Double click on your printer, then select Pause Printing from the Printer menu (It should already be ticked)

Open Start>Control Panel>Printers & Faxes and double click your printer. Find the print job that is paused, right click it and select restart.

Or right click the icon in the task bar this will open pending jobs, then right click on job and cancel.
