Several immediate things come to mind; check to make sure that the printer drivers are up-to-date; there maybe a possibility of an IRQ conflict; check to make sure that the printer is set as the default printer in control panel; make sure that the printer you want to print from in the <file>, <print> menus screen is selected and not a virtual one. Absent more info like OS and how your printer is connected to your computer (e.g., is it through a serial cable, then make sure com port is active in BIOS and is checked off in the properties menu [control panel, printer, properties, port tab]; or are you using an LPT-printer port or USB connection- make the same check. Sorry that I can't be more specific without additional info.
Ideas? Yes. I had this happen on an LJ 1000 while trying to print my tax return. I tried emptying the queue, removing power from the printer, etc, etc. What finally worked was to empty the queue (again), disconnect power from the printer, shut down the computer, plug in the printer again, restart the computer, queue up a print job again, and hit PRINT. Hope this works for you

Printer is in Error mode. Make sure your printer is able to print self

Turn off your computer for about 2 minutes same with your printer. Then turn on your computer first and if you are already on your desktop turn on your printer. Then go control panel and click your printer and delete the queue document. Have a nice day!
Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels. Use head cleaning before a test is taken .
If you mean that when you go to print a document it doesn't hang in the Windows print queue and leaves quickly, then it is because either the printer has grabbed the document into its memory or it has sent the document to what it thinks it another printer. It might also be that the drivers you are using are not set correctly or that the connection to the printer is incorrect.
To start with You check the data cable is properly connected to your printer than you open the printer dialogue box and remove the documents pending in the queue and retstart the computer and before giving the print command select the printer that you are going to use(if more printers are connected to the computer).if all this does not work i suggest you to reinstall the printer after uninstalling it
