Open the Control Panel from either the Start menu or by opening 'My Computer.' Find your Printers and Faxes folder and open that.  Double-click on the icon of the X2500; if more than one, choose the one with a check mark and double click on that icon. This will open a 'job list' showing those which were not completed for some reason, click on it (them) and delete it from the list.

you have clear the print buffer in the computer.
by clearing out the buffer, unplug the computer after ward and than also unplug the printer too, that should clean the memory in the printer itself.

GO TO START CLICK ON START GO TO DEVICES AND PRINTERS, OPEN THE FOLDER CLICK ON THE PRINT YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH DOUBLE CLICK IT WILL SENT YOU TO CHECK LIST OF OPTIONS THE FIRST ONE.

1. SEE WHATS PRINTING, CLICK TO OPEN
2. HIGH LIGHT PRINTER THAN SCROLL DOWN TO CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS.
YOU SHOULD BE DONE

I want to cancel to print and my printer doesn't have a cancel icon to do this. do I just turn off my printer? My printer is PH Photosmart. Please advise - I'm new to all this. Thank You.


When u print it goes to a "cue" on the pc and stays there untill done. Turning off your printer will not work as the "job in the cue" is still there. When u turn on your printer the job starts up untill finished.

Ok to stop a print job turn off printer.

........Hope you are running windows 7
1.) Open devices and printers
2.) double click your printer
3.) select see whats printing dialog
4.) select the items in the list then right mouse click
5.) select CANCEL
6.) The job is now deleted from the que so when you turn your printer on it will not start until you print your next item.

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.

Having problems deleting pending documents


Assuming you have a modern windows pc, You will need to manually stop the print service. Do this by running the command "net stop spooler" from the "run" line. Then go to "C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS" and delete all the files from there. After these files are gone, start the spooler service again by running "net start spooler". You should be all set after that.

Cannot print with Lexmark x4875, Windows Vista OS.


You need to cancel all print jobs for a printer, you must have permission to manage documents on the printer.

1. Open printers by clicking the "Start" button , clicking "Control Panel," clicking "Hardware and Sound," and then clicking "Printers."

2. To open the print queue, double-click the printer you are using.

3. Click the "Printer" menu, and then click "Cancel All Documents." Depending on the printer, the item currently printing might finish, but the remaining items will be cancelled.

Next, you may have to change the communication format called the "Spool format."
Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:
1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."
3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.
4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark 4800 series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
If this does not help the situation, please describe any differences it does make.

Not printing and nothing is paused or on the print list.


First of all you must let canceled print jobs finish deleting before sending new jobs, if the job is taking too long try restarting the computer with the printer on to clear the jobs this usually works if not then after restart open the printers folder and cancel all jobs here. let them finish deleting while the printer is still on (they must remain in communication during deleting jobs. Once all jobs are gone, remove the power brick from the printer for about a minute then reinsert and let the printer start up if it doesn't after a minute or so just turn it on once it finishes then try printing again.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner


To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB WITH THE PROGRESS METER:
When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB FROM THE PRINTERS WINDOW:
If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS (START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS and FAXES in Windows XP).
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.
