Printing Status of Lexmark Optra R Series
Shows all the print jobs that are in printers queue  or in order of request if more than one. Status reports order, and if problems of printer. In this case, the status indicates "Out of Paper". Some interpretation is needed. Actually the printer was turned off in this case and would probably display this message if the printer had wrong size paper, turned off or actually out of paper.

Print documents in Error
Print documents that show data error, need to be deleted. Select print job that needs to be deleted, select menu "Printer" select "Purge Print Documents" should purge just the selected job and begin printing the jobs still in queue. The job deleted should be resubmitted. If  showing error on second submission, suspect document corruption.
