    About using "hang up" for print jobs

    Dear,

    I would like to ask the following question.
    Do I need to replace the "hung up" with something else? Is it OK to use "hung up"?

    "On 11.11.2014, a user reported that the print jobs from 12-05 APC4300 were hung up with an error code 116-324."

    Thank you.

    It seems to me that "hung up" might be some kind of printer's slang. Have you googled it?

    (My favorite printer's slang is "bang" (for EM).)

    I wouldn't use it. How about stalled/stuck?

    I understand it too. Maybe it's more American.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: About using "hang up" for print jobs

    So what does "hung up" mean in the present context, and where can I find a definition?

    Stuck in queue, suspended, not printing (and either is anything in the queue behind it), etc.

    It's understandable in BrE too, but I wouldn't use it.
