Try turning the printer off and then back on.

(I am assuming this is not a networked computer/printer. If it is, the only one who can delete the print job is the one who initiated it.)

Print que on hp 4300 says "printing" but nothing happens and I cannot clear que


Hello,

This is a common problem with Windows machines. If a print job gets corrupted in the print que it will stop and block all other jobs from printing. It will also block the job from being deleted normally. You have to stop the print que service and then delete the print jobs from the que. Here is a link to a full article that shows how to stop the que, delete the print jobs and restart the que to restore printing.

It could be a printer driver issue. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem.
First, clear the print queue from any stuck print jobs. You can do the steps mention - going to Services and stop the print spooler, delete the files in the spooler folder and then restart the service.
Second, delete the existing Lexmark Interpret S405 printer driver. On your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark > Uninstall. After the uninstall process, reboot your pc when prompted.
Third, visit the Lexmark website to download and reinstall the Lexmark Interpret S405 printer driver. Select the version of your Windows operating system. Download and execute the file. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.
After the reinstall process is successful, try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Can't delete print job in print que and nothing else is allowed to print. Help!


Try restarting your computer. If that does not work, disconnect the printer and wait 1 minute and then reconnect. Then go to the print que and try deleting the job.

Cannot delete a print job



Microsoft has the help you need for this issue and I wont try to give you long and possibly misleading information on here.
It is a common problem but the answer is here

You need to refer to method "D" about half way down the page
Once you clear the print job check you dont have any extra printers installed as quite often happens in these situations. If you have then delete your extra printer installations.

How to delete past jobs?


This is the method to delete print jobs in the Queue by Microsoft.
If this is not working, then try this method.
Press Winkey+r
In the run dialog write msconfig
An other dialog-box will appear, there you will see many tabs (Click Services)
In the list find "Print Spooler" (UNCHECK it)
Click Apply,
Restart Your PC, and turn on the service again by Checking it (It may Start Automatically)
Another Method:
Open your C:\ Driver
Goto Windows folder
Then System32 folder
Goto spool folder
In the spool folder there will be a folder named PRINTERS
Delete all the files in that Folder.
You are done.
Hopefully, one of them will work, Best of Luck.
Regards,
Waqar.

My printer has a job waiting that I can't cancel. I've tried everything including turning off the printer to erase the memory, and completely restarting my computer. Nothing will delete this print job


your job is stuck in the printer que, to cancel this go to control panel, open printer and other, right click on the printer icon, delete the job in que (are you sure you want to delete, yes)..........and you are done

Will not print


Try unplugging the USB cable from the back of the computer, not from the back off the printer. Also, try deleting the printer from/at the printer/fax page and restarting your computer so it will reinstall. In either case, when checking the printer/fax folder, make sure there is nothing pending printing. If there is, click on delete all pending printing jobs. If there is a print job pending and you can not cancell/delete this job, then you must delete the printer icon and restart your computer. Aloha!
