How long are print jobs stored on the system?

Print jobs are available for 24 hours only.

What happens if a paper jam occurs in the middle of a print job?

If a DPrint machine jams during a print job, the user is only charged for the pages that have printed. In order to get the rest of the document printed, the user with either need to

  • Ask a DPrint service person to unjam the machine and the rest of the job will print, or
  • Resend the unprinted pages to the print queue and retrieve on another DPrint machine

Note that the job will remain in the print queue only if the user has selected the "Print and Save" feature. Pressing the “Print and Save” button leaves the file stored in the system for an extra 24 hours. If the user has selected the “Print” button, the document has to be resent since pressing this button deletes the file from the system. However, if the user reprints the entire document he/she will be charged for the pages that printed before the jam and the second printing of the entire document.

Users are charged for the number of printed pages.

What happens if I'm charged for a print job that does not print?

For a refund, please send an email to dprint@concordia.ca.

What happens if I'm charged for a print job that does not come out well?

If a print job does not come out well, bring the printed copy to LB-018 for a refund.
