Question about Lexmark X1150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Deleting - Printed

After printing a job, the print indicator window only goes to 99% and the job never completes itself, although the paper spits out and it is finished. If I try to then print another job, it won't print because it thinks the first job isn't done (but it is). When I try to open the queue, the first document says "Deleting- printed". It's almost like it's stuck at deleting the old job. The only way I can print another document is to turn the printer off and on again, then it resets itself to "idle". This can become quite annoying if I need to print multiple documents, as I have to turn the printer on and off between each job. What can I do?

I've also had this problem with an HP LaserJet 4650dtn printer. I've solved this by: - Stop the "Print Spooler" service. - Delete all the existing print spool files. (Stored in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS" by default). - Start the "Print Spooler" service. - Right-click the printer's icon in the Printers and Faxes folder and choose Properties. - Click the Advanced tab. - Click the Print Processor... button. - Make a note of the existing "Print processor" selection on the left (in case you need to revert it.). Then change it to "WinPrint". Click OK. - Click OK on the printer's properties window. - Try sending a print job to see whether it persists in the print queue.

GregoryW's solution worked on a Dell AIO A940, except when I deleted the existing print spool files, the printers disappeared from the Printers and Faxes folder. I had to undelete one of them then the rest of the solution seems to have worked.

I am trying to delete all other jobs and jusr print a new job and my printer is just continuing printing out all the old jobs. I have deleted them from the list but it is still printing them. Any ideas??

I had the same problem once. Try this... with the printer on ... unplug it. This might empty out the buffer on the printer. If it doesn't, do this...let it start to print and then hit cancel. Let it spit out the paper and then reload that piece of paper back onto the tray. Do this till all the old jobs have been completed. At least you didn't waste a lot of paper and ink.

Brother HL-5240 printer problem

This usually means a print job is stuck in the queue that was set to "manual feed" or to a different paper size, such as legal. Add paper to the front manual feed and press "Go". If this is the problem, the stuck document will begin printing from the manual tray.

To clear the problem without printing from the manual feed, cancel all jobs on the printer, delete any jobs out of the Windows print queue and restart the computer.

Not printing and nothing is paused or on the print list.

First of all you must let canceled print jobs finish deleting before sending new jobs, if the job is taking too long try restarting the computer with the printer on to clear the jobs this usually works if not then after restart open the printers folder and cancel all jobs here. let them finish deleting while the printer is still on (they must remain in communication during deleting jobs. Once all jobs are gone, remove the power brick from the printer for about a minute then reinsert and let the printer start up if it doesn't after a minute or so just turn it on once it finishes then try printing again.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer

Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Printer not working properly

The DeskJet printers are notorious for this problem. When you turn the printer off and back on in the middle of a print job, it gets confused when it is back on and cannot interpret the print language when it resumes from the computer. Whenever this happens in the future, you need to delete the print job off your pc before turning the printer back on. If you have windows XP, click START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS&FAXES, then double-click on your printer icon. When the queue window comes up, right-click on the active print job, select DELETE, then reply YES to confirm. If you don't see the print job delete (it might take a minute or so), then you will have to stop/start your Windows print spooler. Go to START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL. Double-click the ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS icon. Double-click the SERVICES icon. Scroll down and locate PRINT SPOOLER. Right-click on it and select STOP. Wait about 10 seconds, then right-click on it again and select START. Close out of the SERVICES & CONTROL PANEL windows. Open your printer status window again and see if it is clear. Once it is clear, it will be safe to turn your printer back on. Hope this helps.
