Can you tell me the approximate size of the files you are printing?
Do you have issues with any other documents?

That may be an eprom fault, or a glitch in that particular file that the printer is not able to process.

Initially can you unplug power to the printer for a few minutes, then hold down the stop/cancel button while plugging back in, and try to print again.
