    Hello,

    I have a problem with Konica Minolta Bizhub C220.
    Twice the printer has printed some random text untill paper tray gets empty. I don't know what caused the printer to go nuts. Probably some bad driver, but how to determine, which computer caused it?

    Pure printer related as this happen night time when the computer is not present.

    Is the file a very large, multi-page PDF? Sometime the processor fails to RIP the entire document - resulting in that unusual text. Try pre-ripping the file before sending it to print.

    How to determine which computer caused it? Go from computer to computer and print a test page until you find the one that prints out this binary gibberish. Reinstall the driver at that computer.

    The old "ghost in the machine" theory, right? Try (1) power-cycling the printer and (2) disconnecting it from the network one night. I think that will purge the ghost. Reconnect the network the next morning and if the ghost returns, it's not the printer . . . it's a computer!
