Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

When I press 'print' my new Canon Pixmz iP4600 it takes about 30secs before it starts to print. After printing, the print job remains in a queue for about 5 mins, preventing me from printing anything else.

This sounds more PC related than it does printer related. Your printer cannot determine when things enter/leave your print queue. I have seen that issues with several different printers and they all were PC related issues.

Canon mx922 not printing word document from PC. Puts it into queue


How To Fix It - The fix is simple. You need to clear the print queue manually so that all the print jobs currently in the queue are deleted properly - once the queue is empty you should then be able to print new documents without problems. We will show you how below, depending on whether you use XP or Vista/7:
1. XP - click 'Start' then click 'Run' and in the Run window type CMD then press 'OK' - this opens a Command Prompt window. Now skip to Step 3.
2. Vista/7 - click 'Start' and type Command in the search box. Right click on the 'Command Prompt' result in the search results above it and select 'Run As Administrator' - this opens a Command Prompt window.
3. All version of Windows - in the Command Prompt window (these commands are also shown in the picture below):
4. Type net stop spooler then press the Enter key.
5. Type del %windir%\system32\spool\printers\*.* /q then press the Enter key (Note: the only spaces in this command are a single space between del and %, and a single space between * and /q)
6. Type net start spooler then press the Enter key.
7. Type exit then press the Enter key to exit the Command Prompt window.
Fixing the print queue
This should have cleared the print queue (i.e. all print jobs have been deleted) and you can now submit new jobs for printing
What Do These Commands Do?
The Command Prompt is a throwback to the pre-Windows days of Microsoft DOS but is still a useful way to type and enter system commands. The print Spooler is basically the print 'queue' - we need to Stop it running before we can Delete documents stuck in it.
The Del command deletes everything currently held in the print queue, including the 'stuck' document(s). We then have to Start the Spooler (print queue) up again so that it can accept new print job requests in future.
What If It Keeps Happening?
If the problem only occurs occasionally it is likely just due to an incompatibility with the actual data being printed ( a webpage that has unusual fonts or some other format that the printer is unable to convert into printed output - run the above fix to resolve it.)
However, if you find that almost all documents keep getting stuck in the print queue then Microsoft's answer is that it is an issue with your printer drivers (software) - one solution may be to download and update new printer drivers from the manufacturer. You could also try the Microsoft automatic Fix It for printers . This will repeat our fix above but may also flag up/fix any different Windows errors that stop printing.
Other causes may include a misconfigured printer e.g. network printing to an IP address that doesn't exist uninstalling and reinstalling the printer software from scratch should fix this.

So far answers don't coincide with the directions I've been given, which is "Press the WSB Button for 5 seconds."


The print queue is what is locked up. Try deleting the items in the print queue.
Start by pausing the print queue. Then delete the items in the queue one by one.
When you have the last print job in the queue it will probably be jammed up in the transition between the computer and printer. Switch off the printer. This should cause the printer on the computer to become offline.
Try deleting this job abain. If it dissapears then turn the printer back on making sure the computer understands the printer is back online. Then try printing again.
If it does not dissapear then you will need to restart the computer to free up this job. When the computer is back up and running check the print queue again. If the job is gone then turn the printer back on and try printing again. If it is not gone then try once again to delete the print job and it should dissapear this time.
Once the job is gone and the print queue is empty turn the printer back on and make sure the computer understands it is back online again.

Try to print again after clearing the print queue.

Keeps printing the same job over and over although the queues for both my computers are blank.


Turn off your printer, unplug the power for about 30secs then turn it back on. It should clear the queues on printer memory.

Canon 4150 wont print , goes into queue


Have you gone into the queue and deleted the print jobs and started again? Do you have any error lights? If so there could be a hardware problem with the printer.
Try taking out the toner and putting it back in. Sometimes that will force the printer to reset intself.
If that doesn't help then you may have to delete the printer from the system and re-install it.

Printer is a Canon MP470 all-in-one, USB connected. OS is Windows XP. Latest printer drivers are installed. After print job completes, status of print job remains in print spool as "printing". If I cancel...


Is your printer hooked up to your network?

Make sure all your settings are correct and try connecting the printer directly into your computer. Then print if it does not work still then comment back and I will be glad to help.

Hope this helped.
