Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Printer will not print, as it will not cancel the last document waiting to be printed. Then it says printing started and copies the document to 50 50% and then completely stops.

Not really a solution but...My error states "Unable to Print 50" with a yellow exclamation point. This happened after a paper jam. Still trying to get the answer and will let you know when I do.

How do we cancel prints on Brother HL-2140


You cancel prints in the computer.

If you tried to print something that is still pending and you need to get it out of the print queue follow these instructions:

On the lower right side of your computer screen near the clock area - look for the printer icon (picture of your printer) Right click with your mouse on top of the picture of the printer and choose "properties" from the drop down list. Click on the name of the document that you wish to cancel and click file and click on cancel document. You can also click on the name of the document you want to cancel and then right click on it again and choose cancel from the drop down list.

You may need to choose cancel all documents to get rid of any which are pending.

My error light blinks on and off. I stopped my printer in the middle of a printing (I asked for too many copies), and pulled out the last sheet. Turned off printer and computer. Now I have this error...


Maybe you have a finding work to be print. Just check the printer status at the start menu. click the printer and faxes then double click the type of printer that you used. After that, the dialogue box appears then on the top of the box you see the word (Printer) click it and then click Cancel all Document then OK. That process are cancell all the finding document that you print before. If did not remove just switch Off the printer and turned it On again. Try this solution back in back if the finding document was not remove.

I tried to cancel printing jobs once in progress and had no succe


Printers will hold the documents in the memory of the printer. Windows holds the documents until they are received by the printer.
Go to the printer and cancel the job, then open the printer by double clicking on it in Printer and Faxes (if in XP) and cancel the document from the menu while the document is highlighted. (document, cancel)
A trick I have used is to remove the paper from the printer, wait until the last sheet is printed and turn off the printer. Windows will pop up with an error that includes cancel the print job.

Printer stopped working after I cancelled a print job


Turn off your printer and completely unplug the USB cable (from both the printer and the computer). Next check if the stopped document or the later documents are in the print spooler queue. If you can cancel all documents from the queue, do so. Otherwise: from Start Run (or the command prompt)
type: net stop spooler [enter]
then type: net start spooler [enter]

This works in XP and older MS Operating Systems but I've never tried it in Vista.

If you only enter the first command, you need to reboot the computer and then take a long coffee break after logging in before trying to print again.

My dell a920 printer wont print


Try this:

Open your "Printers and Faxes" folder in the Control Panel (which you find by clicking on the Start button of you computer).

Double click on the icon for the printer you're having trouble with (Dell A920 in your case).

In that little box that pops up it shows all the documents that are waiting to print. Click on the Printer tab in the upper left hand corner and hit cancel all documents in the drop-down list.

Sometimes it will erase all but the last one, and it will forever say "deleting."

If that's the case, restart you computer go through the same steps I just outlined before trying to print anything else. Usually this will fix the problem of print jobs waiting in line to get printed.

To help prevent this problem in the future, watch real close whenever you try to print something, and when you see it isn't going to print, hit "cancel print" real quick before it gets bogged down and stuck. Then make sure there are no document "in queue" (as per the instructions above) before you try to print anything else.

Hope this helps!

I want to print new page of printing printer keeps churning out prvious printing instrctions i am 78yrs old still learning


Hi,

What you need to do is clear out the printing "QUEUE".

.
Clearing the Print Queue in Windows
The printer is one of the slowest devices in a computer system. If you had to wait for it to print your document before you could resume writing, you would quickly go back to using a typewriter. To eliminate the delay, Windows reserves a portion of memory for something called a “print queue” (or spooler). The queue works on a first-in first-out basis. You can continue to use the computer and send jobs to the spooler as it feeds a steady stream of data to the printer.
Print queues are nice, except when something happens in the printer to cause it to stop functioning. Sometimes it is just a paper jam and sometimes it is a bit more serious. If you need to cancel the jobs in the print queue, you can simply double-click the printer icon (in the system tray down by the clock) and open the print queue. Depending upon the length of your document and how many documents are waiting to print, the printer icon may appear briefly or for a sustained period. (Note: This would be a good time to remove the paper from the printer before continuing.) If the icon is not there, you can manually open the queue.
Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

This should solve your problem, Let me know how it works for you..

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.

Not Printing


The copy function works fine because the printer alone is handling the copy. When you print, you need two machines to get their stories straight. Is your printer turned on before the machine boots up? or is the printer turned on after the machine has booted? Sometimes Windows won't load all the drivers needed if it doesn't detect a device during bootup. You may want to download the latest and greatest drivers from the HP site, uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
