This solution worked perfectly, although I did have to reboot between the run command:

Start>>Run>>net stop spooler>>OK

reboot

Start>>Run>>net start spooler>>OK

My printer will not print. When you check the status of the document it says printing. When you cancel that it doesn't cancel. DAYS later the document prints all by itself. What's that about?


It's because the print queue is saved on the printer's flash memory. This happens when you don't cancel the queues properly or terminated improperly. To get rid of the issue, always try to give the command slowly and don't over load. If you are printing photos, try to make the file size small so that it'll not take long to spool and prepare for printing.

When the problem occurs, so as follows:

Cancel the queues from the print status box ("Cancel all documents"), if they are not cancelled, then turn off the printer (directly unplug the power cord from the printer), it you still see the printing status, keep on cancelling until everything's gone.

If the problem persists, restart your computer. Definitely the problem will be fixed.

It's also important to press the cancel button while the printer powers On.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Today i was trying to print a document, but then when it came out of my printer, its not how i wanted it to be printed. So i pressed cancel on the printer itself. When i tried printing the document again,...


You must clear the que.

You should be able to download the print driver. Id try clearing the que first. do the three finger wave if necessary to find the process - terminate it - then reopen the que - see if the document is gone.

Unplug your printer - ower and signal ... go get a soda . when you get back plug the stuff back in ... remember - shut the stuff off first!

I hope this helps

How can I cancel pending printing with my HP Deskjet D 1455?


You need to go to 'Printers' in Windows, and click on the document in the window to highlight it. Then one of the menu items gives you the option of deleting it.
Turning the machine off does not stop it because the print is held in Windows until the printer says 'thanks, done that', and if Windows senses that the print sequence has failed it simply tries again - and this happens, of course, when you turn the printer off and on again. Werry irritating.

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.

Wont let me cancel a pending document


I used to have the same issue. It happened on five different occasions. I tired all kinds of steps to fix it and none worked. Finally, my daughter fixed it for me by accident. She tripped over the plug to the computer. After it restarted, I canceled the document, and it worked perfectly. After that, i knew what to do. Hope this helps@
