Hp deskjet f4140 not operating

I tried to print a document earlier and i didn't like the layout of it, so i cancelled it. at the same time, i ran out of paper. so, i replaced the paper thinking it would cancel the job. it didn't print, so i assumed it did. then i tried to print another job, and it wouldn't print. i pulled up the queue and saw that the second job is on hold, pending the first job. i tried cancelling the first job again. IT'S STILL THERE! i can't get rid of it and i can't print anything else.
please help!
