hi, sometimes this results to documents that are pending and didnt finish to print. try to cancel the documents on the print tasks and try to unplug the printer then plug it again to get rid of the light and start printing again. hope this helps
To clear all pending job In run window type services.msc and the go to print spooler option just stop and restart the service. And switch off and switch on the printer. Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!
If you are using XP in the bottom right corner you should see a small printer icon. Click on it (you mite need to click on the arrow to expose the printer icon) Then right click on the job and cancel it.
Next Time remove the Printer power cable, then unplug it from your PC, restart the printer. then Check all the process again try printing a page then on the bottom right of your task bar (start up) you will see a printer icon, double click to open and then delete the printing
NOTE: it is better to cancel printing from the Printer itself and Delete printing from the PC, because before the PC sends a cancel command to the Printer the document would have finished Spooling at this point the printer does not need the PC to print
You should show an Icon in the task bar when printing,right click it.Then click cancel print job.You can also get there by start menu,then click printers and faxes.Then click your printer and cancel print.
Note:you can always do a print preview by clicking the little arrow(in explorer)next to the printer Icon.Then pick what pages you want to print,click apply,then print.Hope this helps?
open the printer and faxes the double click on the printer driver and cancel the all pending document ....... and check the printer status ......... if is it in ready means only you can take print ......
for any clarification please post your comment ....
If this happens often and then eventually you are able to get back to work. I'll explain how these printers work.
When you send a print task to the printer, the data that is the construct for your document it resides on the printer in a temporary storage location called RAM. Once the instructions and the data are in RAM hitting the Cancel button will not have an effect until there is a break in the program execution to print. Sometimes nearly all the document will print before it cancels and this may take some time. The Cancel command must intercept a line of prgram execution. So just be patient.
If you need to immediately stop printing for some reason, the best thing is to pull the plug on the printer. Leave it unplugged for some time. As you put the power plug back in, press and Hold Cancel until the printer finishes the startup self check test, otherwise it may just pickup where it left off.
If this is a problem where no matter what you do, and the unplug replug while holding down the Cancel button doesn't clear your problem, unplug the printer again and look next to the digital clock at the bottom right of the PC screen. You may see an icon for your printer there. Double click that and you should see all the printer tasks listed in the printer que. Select all of those and then drop the file menu down and select cancel all or delete all.
