Printer of all types connet to a computer and make use of a spooling service on the computer. You may need to go into the Printers and Faxes section of the computer from the Start button and open up the printer you are using and right click on all the documents that are listed there and click on cancel. There is a relationship between printer and computer with handshaking so you need to cancel and let the printer be connected to cancel the jobs. Pull out the paper tray might be a way to have it stop printing while to cancel the jobs. The cancel or clear on the printer only affect the jobs held in the memory on the printer and then as soon as that is clear the next job from the spool comes in. Clear printer spooling and then the printer should stop.
make sure there is no pending print job in print spooler if it is there then clear it before giving the print .for clearing
In run window type services.msc and the go to print spooler option just stop and restart the service. and also switch off and switch on the printer and try to cancel all the documents form print spooler it will remove all pending jobs.
just open the printer cover and switch it off the printer and try to pull out the paper slowly and cancel all the print job from print queue.for clearing the print job you can go to run window and type services.msc
and the go to print spooler option just stop and restart the service.
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.
As the previous expert has stated, with the printer paused, press the cancel key to cancel the job. One thing to note, is depending on how your software sends the print jobs, you may say print 1000 labels, but the software sends it one at a time, so basically you have 1000 print jobs in the printer. If you pause the printer, press and hold the cancel key. Hold it for about 2 mins. This should clear the buffer.
Clear the print queue by double clicking the printer icon in the Printers and Faxes folder and power off and unplug the printer power cord. Remove the paper from the tray and power the printer back on if it attempt to print again repeat the process until the memory is cleared.
Try this: Press MENU, select FAX, then scroll down to REMAINING JOBS. If any jobs are displayed , you can choose to print them. To print from the fax memory, first exit out of the MENU functions totally. Then, press MENU,2,5,4. Next, press START. After all faxes in memory have printed, press STOP/EXIT button. Check REMAINING JOBS again, if it is clear, fax memory should be clear, Also.If the fax machine has a PRINTER function, press the JOB CANCEL button to clear the print Queue.
