servicea@instructables is incorrect, it's service@instructables.com - please don't get cross with the site because you mistyped something.

Try File>Print Preview for things you're not familiar with, esp. web-pages - note the preview page-count.

You will find that if you turn the printer-off and remove the paper it will not print. Did you keep filling it up with paper? Then you can take your time to cancel the job.

I'm very sorry you're having trouble, but we don't know how to use your printer so we may not be the best people to call. I'd suggest calling whoever manufactured your printer and asking them how to cancel a print job.

In the future, if you ever need to print off of a webpage, I would suggest saving the page as a pdf first (every OS should allow you to do that), and then printing the pdf. This allows you to delete all of the pages that you don't need. Webpages aren't really made to be print ready, so it's a nice habit to get into.

If there is anything else I can do for you, just reply to this comment and I'll see it.
