Windows 7: Brother Printer Problem; Printing Just A Single Page ? Clearing Mem?

Brother Printer Problem; Printing Just A Single Page ? Clearing Mem?


Would sure appreciate some help with this; driving me crazy.

Have a few year old Brother monochrome laser printer, Model HL-2140/ 2170W
One of their cheaper models; just does simple B&W single page printing.

I opened up a very big document of a few hundred pages.
The print option gives me the option to print "ALL" or "Just This Page"

I was careless, and didn't select the print only a single page option.

Now, no matter what I do, press, or turn the printer on or off, it always wants to come back to printing
the entire document.

I guess it's all loaded into it's memory.

How do I clear the printer memory, please, so I can go back to printing single pages ?

Much thanks,

Follow as what mitchell65 mentioned.

But first, do not turn on the printer yet.
Only after you clear the queue, then turn on the printer.

Also some printer do have a separate memory, if any.
Then do clear the printer memory by remove the papers first.
