Paper is stuck in printer

I was trying to print on tracing paper (in foresight this wasn't such a good idea), and the printer started spooling, but then the paper got stuck. I tried printing another page, hoping that the second would push the first one out, but that one got stuck too, and made the tracing paper even more stuck. I don't know what to do, and I'm afraid of digging into the printer to remove the pages in case anything breaks. What should I do? Please help, any suggestions are welcome.

Epson printer 1400, is printing vertical blue lines through my prints. How can I eliminate them?

If the lines are vertical to the direction of the printhead movement, you need to clean the paper rollers and the small "pizza wheels" of your printer. Also check for any traces of stuck paper in the paper path. I recon you ars not using genuine inks, right? Try to slow down your print speed by selecting a best quality setting.
If the lines are parallel to the printhead movement, your printhead is either clogged our stuck.

Printer stuck on spooling

Try the steps below to fix the spooling problem:
  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.

I'm running Windows 7 Home edition. My HP PhotoSmart 7960 is printing very slowly up to 5 minutes after a 1 page print job is spooled. I get a slow jerky printing. I ran the HP print diagnostic and...

First I congratulate you for fixing your problem all by your self without needing the help of HP Support. Well i can't really tell what could be the problem because there are many factors for that problem. But here are the things you can check: - check the front panel of the printers for any error msg like "paper jam, carriage jam, out of paper, etc.", that may cause it to spooled or stuck in queque - check the connectivity. If you are using wireless, make sure that your signal is stable - computer related errors: make sure that there is no conflicting programs or viruses that may interfere with the printing. Update your windows and anti-virus program. - Include HP softwares into your firewall exception area
For support needs you can Call HP Support 800-474-6836
Hope That Gave you an idea ^_^

The ink cartridge will not eject. It's stuck inside the printer.

Canon Selphy CP800. I had a cartridge ribbon break when it stuck to some photo paper I was trying to reuse and the cartridge became stuck and would not release. All you have to do is try to print a dummy print, the printer will then display that the ink cartridge needs replacing, it will then allow the cartridge to pop out when the release catch is operated. Beware of broken and torn ribbon inside the printer and try to remove the obvious loose pieces before inserting the new cartridge. Any remaining bits of ribbon should stick to the next photo you try to print but a ruined photo is a small price to pay as your printer should work ok once the debris is cleared. If you are adventurous you can dismantle the cartridge by inserting a small flat screwdriver into the retaining clips at each end of the cartridge cover. remove the used ribbon from the spool as it is only stuck onto the spool spindle. Re thread the unused ribbon onto the spool ensuring it travels round the deflecting spindle which is easily prised out and replaced over the ribbon. You must ensure that the new ribbon is wound onto the spool in the correct direction (check this by comparing the rotation with good cartridge by ensuring the ribbon tightens as it should) then wind the ribbon forward until the black line appears on the clear sheet of ribbon and carry on printing.

While printing, paper jams. the sheet pulls through initially, but then while printing, the paper scrunches up and the cartridge jams.

It is likely that there is a small piece of torn paper inside that is causing the paper to bunch up. Try a can of compressed air to clean out the interior and trace through the route the paper takes. Look for anything the paper could get stuck on.

Good Luck!

Printer only prints one page of multiple page document


You may try to change the spool data format:

1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Printers and Other Hardware" and "Printers and Faxes."

("Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers" for Vista...)

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 *** series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."

5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.

6. Try printing again.

I have a 7 year old Lexmark 2381plus dot matrix printer. Recently, the print on the last page of the 3 part form has become very hard to read (very light). I changed the ribbon and have the form setting...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would seem you posted twice.

Based on your description, the printer is working, it is not a form issue, the printer head is good, an adjustment might be needed and it works, there is no reason to replace the Lexmark 2381plus printer even if it is 7 years old (not unless you would want to).

To the faint printing on the last of the 3 pages:
  • the take-up spool/wheel drawing the ribbon is not working (most likely). The ribbon is not moving hence the printer head is not striking fresh ribbon area. Check the ribbon cartridge, it may be stuck or the driving spindle where the ribbon's take-up spool/wheel locks into. It may need a bit of cleaning and/or lubrication;
  • the printer head is slightly adjusted away from the paper. Normally, there is a mechanical lever/adjustment that sets how many paper & duplicates are fed. Adjust for 1 only.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

What you need to do is manually clear the print queue (Spool).
To do that create a new text document with notepad and type in the following 4 lines:

net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

now save the document and rename it to QueueCleaner.cmd (or whatever you want to call it, just keep the .cmd at the end).

Now just double click the .cmd file whenever a print job will be stuck and will not delete.

BTW, you can just type the same 4 commands under Start -> Run if you prefer.
