    I just discovered my problem.  The cord on the back of the printer had become unplugged!  Problem solved.  Nevertheless, I can't believe the speed and clarity of your help!  It's four stars all the way!  Thank you!

OK. You can calm down. This is quite fixable although your document in the queque is probably gone. I hope you saved before printing.

I need to confirm you printer model as our selection list is not always that accurate to the actual printer you have.

Look at the back of the printer near the power line cord. Note the model name and the model number. Take note that I may be off as to where your model plate is located but Epson usually keeps this in the same location.

Thanks. Once you have posted this back I'll get the links to your drivers. You will have to uninstall your printer using the Add/Remove in Control Panel first, unplug the USB cable and then you'll be ready to install the drivers again. OK?

Regards,
Worldvet

    Hi,
    Thanks for the four star reply on my solution, but rating me a fixed would be a nice pat on the back.

    But, really, glad to help and thanks for using FixYa. You can request me if you like in the future, just take note that I may not be logged in every time you come along. So, usually posting in the free forum will get you a reply, but using our Premium Post will get you immediate replies and a lot of them.

    Thanks again for reconsidering your rating.

    Regards,
    Worldvet

How do I cancel documents in a queue


Cheers james heron

To cancel a queued document, there are several ways, it is best to go to printing devices and open what is printing the printer you want to cancel, click Cancel and disappear the document.
cancel-documents-in-queue-3yd5oaqhykbr2qilonoqer23-5-0.jpg
In many cases this does not help then you click cancel, the document continues to appear, that's when it works best to turn off the computer and turn it on again.
Another thing you can do to disappear a file from the print queue, disconnect the printer's USB cable and connect it again, for it can do so from your computer or from the same printer.

Another way that can work is, turn the printer off and turn it on again, you should always look the team to lose the memory of what is printed, in order to begin again.

What to do if after canceling the printing in queue document its status is still showing deleting ?


Give it a few minutes. Sometimes it takes awhile to delete the document.

If that fails, turn off the printer, wait a minute, then turn it back on. The document should be deleted.

So far answers don't coincide with the directions I've been given, which is "Press the WSB Button for 5 seconds."


The print queue is what is locked up. Try deleting the items in the print queue.
Start by pausing the print queue. Then delete the items in the queue one by one.
When you have the last print job in the queue it will probably be jammed up in the transition between the computer and printer. Switch off the printer. This should cause the printer on the computer to become offline.
Try deleting this job abain. If it dissapears then turn the printer back on making sure the computer understands the printer is back online. Then try printing again.
If it does not dissapear then you will need to restart the computer to free up this job. When the computer is back up and running check the print queue again. If the job is gone then turn the printer back on and try printing again. If it is not gone then try once again to delete the print job and it should dissapear this time.
Once the job is gone and the print queue is empty turn the printer back on and make sure the computer understands it is back online again.

How to stop printing once it has started


For Brother Laser Machines. Start by pulling the paper tray out a little. This allows the page that is currently feeding through the system the chance to get through without jamming causing a whole slew of other problems.

Once the printer has stopped trying to feed the pages through coming up with an error saying paper out then you can look at deleting all the print jobs in the print queue on your computer. All but the one currently being printed should disappear when you delete them. The one that is left will be errored.

Then turn your printer off for 30 seconds closing the paper tray and try to delete that last job from the queue.

If it will not go then turn your printer back on and let the last couple of pages print out. these are pages that are stuck in the system. If the print job did disappear then just turn on your printer as normal and it should be clear of any jammed printing and you don't end up with Paper Jams in the printer to clear.

Document stuck in queue and will not delete or print.


Its a common problem. All you have to do is to restart the Print Spooler service and delete the print queue. To restart the service follow the steps: Open Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services. Now find service named "Print Spooler" and right click over it and select "Restart" to restart the service.
Now open the "Printers and Faxes" folder and try to delete the print queue. Now you will be able to delete the print queue. If applicable you can follow the steps once again if any print queue refuse to get deleted.
Once the print queue is empty, you can print from your printer smoothly.
Cheers!

Hi,

right click the items in print queue and delete them. You have to wait a few secs before the print queue is clear. You can also try to reprint the same thing by right clicking the item in print queue.
