HP deskjet 920c - How to delete a job which is already in process?

When I cancel a job which is already printing, the printer starts printing junk forever. I can restart it or disconnect its power, but I cannot make it erase the junk in its memory' and it goes on printing. Any ideas?

I am asumming you are using Windows XP! Opening the Print Spooler from the system tray does not always work! Open up the Print Spooler Service (located in Administrative Tools/Services) from there you can stop and restart the Print Spooler, and hopefully rid yourself of all the junk in the Printers memory try this and write back if it worked

Cancelled a job and it stays in queue

Cancel all the documents in the print queue, (just do it whether they are actually deleted or not), press "cancel" on button the printer and restart your system and also the printer. If possible, please leave the printer switched off for few minutes and don't forget to use the "Power" button to turn if off or on. This will help your printer to restart new print job, all the jobs on the print queue will be deleted/cleared. Good luck, Thanks for using FixYa.

Help! My HP deskjet D1560 printer is "hung-up" - it won't print, but won't "cancel" the last print job - even though it says "deleting". I have repeatedly gone in to cancel it - but it doesn't cancel. ...

Firstly turn the printer off and leave it off for a few mins. This should clear the buffer.

If not then can delete the printer "from control panel", restart PC and then re-install the printer....but make sure you have/can get the driver for the printer first!

Printer keeps printing one line gibberish and then scrolls on

1) click the printer icon in the tasktray to open the printer tasks and delete any active print jobs, and wait for the task to be deleted.

2) power off the printer and power it back on that should clear it.

3) you may need to power it on and off more than once.

Printing status frozen and won't delete or print

Have you tried unpluging your printer from the computer as well as unpluging the printer from the electrical? If that doesn't work you should start from scratch... that is remove the printer from the computer memory, delete it, turn off the computer, turn on the computer and go through the installation process as if you just purchased the printer. Barring any mechanical problems as in jams or the such, the printer should return to operational status.
