I had the same problem on my laserjet 1100. When I went in to delete document via control panel the document did not show up. However I had an old printer still registered on my computer and the document was listed under that printer. Cancelling it solved the problem. I have now deleted that old printer so the problem should not recur. Hope this helps.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by
resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer
from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and
re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns
on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again
once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on
the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).
If that doesn't help, try the steps below:
Disconnect the USB cable
connecting the printer from your computer.
On your computer, go to Control
Panel > Printers and Faxes.
Delete the Lexmark print
Re-brick your printer by
pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged
into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
When the printer turns on,
reconnect it to the computer.
Wait until your computer fully
recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers
and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print
a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
You need to view the print que and cancel all prints.
Do the following:
1.) Navigate to windows control panel and double click Printers and Faxes.
2.) Now double click on your Hp Business inkjet 1000 Printer it should come up with the que.
3.) Click Printer and then click Cancel all documents. That is the Printer tab on the top left of the box.
That should cancel the documents in the print que and you printer should be able to rest now.
Your last print job might have crashed, but it's still trying to send data to the printer. If you have a Windows system, Go to Printers from the Control Panel and double-click on the printer. If you see any print jobs listed, choose File/Cancel All Documents.
But sometimes that doesn't work - then follow these steps to get rid of all stuck print jobs:
Start –> Run Type “services.msc” without quotes
Find PrintSpooler and Stop the service
Navigate to C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS and delete all files in the folder.
Next Repeat Step 1 and Start the PrintSpooler Service.
drop kick unit across room:)))) sorry just kidding I had the same problem with mine. If the computer is continually printing that means the printer is receiving print orders from your computer. Best thing is just disconnect the printer from the computer and turn the computer off and wait 30 seconds then turn on . This should clear the print cache then reconnect the printer. Make sure to only request one print at at a time.
if the printer continues to print blank pages check to see if you have the latest software driver for the printer installed on your computer. You can do this by going to the manufactures website and download the software its easy to do just follow the prompts and install! Hope this helpful!!!
How is this printer connected to your computer? Is it connected by a parallel/centronics cable, or USB, or perhaps not connected physically at all, but via network (it's a network-capable printer)?
Also, you don't specify the operating system.
I would guess, that it was installed on the LPT (parallel) port, instead of a network port, and because in reality nothing is connected to the parallel port it is producing an error (explaining why it's called busy would be long and boring).
Anyway, please either check the setting of the port to which this printer is printing (find that in Printer Properties), or be more specific as to what your current situation is.
There is something in the print queue. Shutdown both the printer and the computer. Then turn the computer on and go to the Control Panel>printer> double click on your printer icon, and delete any documents that are there. Afterward turn your printer on. This should clear the queue.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
disconnect printer from computer cancel documents in queue if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons. reboot & reconnect printer (swap cables if not detected)
