Sometimes print jobs are delayed due to the size or format of the documents, or there is a high volume of print jobs in the global printing queue. General printing tips are available, which may help if your document fails or takes a long time to print. Most importantly, the file size should be under 250MB.

If you have released your job on a printer and the blue lights are flashing, the job is still being sent to the printer - this can take upwards of 10 minutes for very large files.
If you have released your job on a printer and the white light is flashing, the job is being processed by the printer and is in the process of being printed.

Further information can be found on the Printing, copying and scanning page. If you require further help please call into any of the libraries and speak to the friendly staff.
