My printer won't print pictures. It will start receiving the file, it will start printing it, and then it stops at some point, sometimes halfway through, sometimes near the end, sometimes it only prints about 5% of the image.

So.....No. Did not print. It said it was 3 pages, it only printed some text on the first page, then it spit out a second empty page. So the printer has stopped, although the printer dialog box remained open, and then an error box just popped up saying "Print data cannot be sent because of current printer status. Check that the printer is connected and the power is on. If an error has occurred in the printer, clear the error. Even when the printer is operating correctly, this message may appear if the printer is taking a long time to perform an operation. If this message does not disappear after some time, stop printing, and then print again."
