Please try this approach:

  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

SOURCE: Deleting - Printed

GregoryW's solution worked on a Dell AIO A940, except when I deleted the existing print spool files, the printers disappeared from the Printers and Faxes folder. I had to undelete one of them then the rest of the solution seems to have worked.

SOURCE: Lexmark X6170 stops printing at 99%

I found the following post on AsusForum.NET that solved the problem for me - hope it helps -

"As I had printing problems with my Lexmark X6170, which I bought at the time because it looked a good deal, I started to work on a solution.

I think this problem is also applicable for a number of other printers. The symptom is that the spooler in windows displays a progress for 99%. If you want to delete the job from the queue, you could end up restarting the print spooler.

The solution is rather simple (it took me a while to find out though).

If you go to the properties for your printer and click on the tab <advanced> and on the button <print processor>, just select the [winprint] processor instead of the manufacturer processor (in my case lexmark...). In the right pane select one of the [NT EMF...] processors and this should do the trick.
ALSO disable the bidirectional support on the <ports> tab...

As I thought the problem lies in the signal which has to be send back from the printer to the processor that the job has finished. As there is now way for the printer to send back the signal over the same printing port (RAW/9100), the spooler still thinks the job hasn't finished.
I searched the technet site and found some notes where a similar problem is described. In the case a problem like this occurs (apparently only with printers which use their own software and need bidirectional support...) they (the dark side) advises to use a Microsoft driver instead...

Hope I could help somebody with a frustrating problem.
(ps. printer works fine, the lexmark software not.)"

SOURCE: X5150 and Vista print issue

I am posting this in hopes of helping others that are having issues with the Vista print spooler. In my case, I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Vista connected to a wireless hub. I also have a Minolta Konica 2300DL printer that is connected to the network via the wireless hub as well. Ever since obtaining this laptop, I have not been able to print to the printer other than stopping and starting the print spooler to obtain a single print 'job'. After about six months I found a post that contains the fix - I cannot take credit for it! Follow these instructions to get your printer to work:

1.) Go into control panel - I would suggest classic view as it is a little easier to navigate.

2.) Then go into User Accounts.

3.) From User Accounts go into Turn User Account Control On or Off

4.) UNCHECK Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.

5.) At this point you will probably require a reboot.

Once this exercise is complete, you should be able to print. One more item off of my Honey DOO list!!!!!

SOURCE: Can't cancel print job

I have this problem in Vista Home Premium with a Lexmark Z611. What I do is go into the Task Manager (right-click an empty spot on the taskbar or Ctrl-Alt-Delete and then click Task Manager in Vista; Ctrl-Alt-Delete in XP) and go to the Processes tab. From there I find the process that begins with the letters lxb (lxbcpswx.exe on mine), right-click it and select End Process. That should purge your print queue and let you start over.

SOURCE: i HAVE A LEXMARK 5690

1. Go to Start, Control Panel and Administrative Tools. Double click on Services. 2. Scroll down to the Print Spooler service and right click on it and select Stop. In order to do this, you need to be logged in as Administrator. At this point, no one will be able to print anything on any of the printers that are being hosted on this server.
3. Next you need to go to the following directory: C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS. Delete all the files in this folder. This will clear all print queues (it’s a good idea to first make sure there are no other print jobs being processed on any of the other printers on the server because doing this step will delete those jobs also)
4. Now you can go back to the Services console and right-click and choose Start for the Print Spooler service!
You can also go to a command prompt and type net stop spooler or net start spooler to start and stop the service.

Prinnter not printing but showing &#39;put custom in manual tray&#39;


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Why is the light flashing on the right side


If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:

• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing.
• The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.


If it's Busy:
• Wait for the message to clear.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.


If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages:
• Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the
printing stops.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel printing.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

Cancelled a job and it stays in queue


Cancel all the documents in the print queue, (just do it whether they are actually deleted or not), press "cancel" on button the printer and restart your system and also the printer. If possible, please leave the printer switched off for few minutes and don't forget to use the "Power" button to turn if off or on. This will help your printer to restart new print job, all the jobs on the print queue will be deleted/cleared. Good luck, Thanks for using FixYa.

It takes unduly long time to cancel a print-command on any printer, when we work on Windows. What is the surest way to kill a printing command.


Open "Printers and Faxes" from the Start Menu. Open the print queue for your printer by double-clicking on your printer's icon. There will be a list of all the current print jobs. There you can right-click on a job and select Cancel, Restart, etc. Cancel will remove it from the list.

If you are not on the computer that is connected to the printer, you might not have permission to change the queue. Then you should go to the computer that is actually connected, and use this procedure there.
