Question about Brother MFC 7840W Printer
I have a Brother MFC-7840W printer, fax, and copier. It is on and not in sleep mode. The wireless LAN connection works fine. On my apple Mac computer I was able to print yesterday, but today it says the PRINTER IS PAUSED. How do I un-pause it? I have selected resume printing on the computer and it takes it out of paused mode, but as soon as I try to print something it goes right back into paused mode on my laptop.

i think the problem is that the printer could not initialized the printer head position. you can open the cover and turn on the printer. check if the motor for feeding paper moves but the roller does not. replace the gear attached to the roller. i hope this will help.

Does it have a control panel or buttons on the printer itself?
If so, are any of them blinking or red?
Sometimes an error will cause a pause in the printer and you have to press one of the buttons to get it to start back up again.
This is the link to the manuf. website. I did a search on your model, theres a few so i guessed. but the manuals are available along with drivers.
I suggest you go and update them and go through the PDF and see if there is anything partaining to this issue.
I went through the PDF a bit and didnt see anything partaining to the PAUSE issue but try going through and see if anything is it.
On the printer icon on the bottom right of your task bar, right click on the printer icon and see if you can select CANCEL print job, then try unpausing it. Also, power off and then power back on and see if that clears it.
You may have to un-install the printer and re-install it and update the drivers to clear it.
Sometimes a Print job will get stuck in que when theres a jam or something and it wont continue till the issue is resolved, then you open and close the top cover and that resets it, it rechecks then continues.
