The printer cannot print full pages of a document. An error message PRINT OVERRUN is printed out.

Please do the following:


  • Press the Go button to print the data left in the printer. Cancel the print job if you want to delete the data remaining in the printer.
    To cancel printing: while printing press the Go button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. The Ready and Paper LEDs will flash as the job is being canceled.
  • If this does not clear the error, reduce the complexity of your document or reduce the print resolution.
  • Set page protection AUTO by using the supplied Windows® driver.
    Select 'Device Options (5)' in the 'Advanced' tab of the printer driver. Then select 'Page Protection' and set it to 'AUTO'.


  • Change the following settings in the supplied Windows® driver, and then try again. The best combination of the settings below will vary depending on your document:
    +Graphics mode
    +TrueType mode (HL-2070N/2075N only)
    +Use printer TrueType® fonts (HL-2070N/2075N only)

    To change these settings, click 'Advanced' tab of the printer driver. Select 'Manual' in the 'Print Setting' section. Click 'Setting...'.
