Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Keep printing old docoments / will not print current docoment / printing seem to be strunt


Follow these steps to fix your problem :

Method A :
Press the cancel button or use the cancel menu command on the printer
The most obvious way to cancel a print job is to find a cancel button or a cancel menu command on the printer and to press it. So, if you have not already done this, try this method first.

If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article. However, you may want to read the "Prevention tips" section to avoid this problem in the future.

If your printer does not have these items or if this method did not work for you, try Method B.

Method B:
Turn the printer off and on
Next, try turning the printer off and then on. With certain printer models, this cancels the print job.

If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article. However, you may want to read the "Prevention tips" section to avoid this problem in the future.

If this method did not work for you, turn your printer off, and then try Method C.

Method C:
Use Control Panel to cancel printing
This method is a bit fancier. We will use Control Panel to try to cancel printing.

But what exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to cancel printing only a single document, or are there other print jobs that you want to cancel? And are all the print job yours, or are there print jobs that other people have sent to the printer? If you have to cancel documents that other people have sent to the printer, you must have Computer Administrator status or you must have permission to cancel the print jobs. If you are using your own printer, you most likely have Computer Administrator status. If you are printing to a shared printer, you might have to ask the system administrator to cancel the print job for you.

To cancel one or more print jobs, follow these steps.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type control printers, and then click OK.
3. Right-click the icon for your printer, and then click Open.
* To cancel individual print jobs, right-click the print job that you want to cancel, and then click Cancel.
* To cancel all print jobs, click Cancel All Documents on the Printer menu.

Note If you cancel a print job that you did want to print, make sure that you send the print job to the printer again.

If this method worked for you, you are finished with this article. However, you may want to read the "Prevention tips" section to avoid this problem in the future.

If this method did not work for you, make sure that your printer is turned off, and then try Method D.
Back to the top
Method D: Stop the print spooler and delete all spooled files
If you tried Methods A through C and you were not successful, Method D should work for you. If you came to Method D immediately only to delete a print job, some of what we say here might not apply to you, so please bear with us.

Method D is somewhat more complex and will require a bit more work than the other methods, but don't worry. Method D looks much more difficult than it really is.

First, in case that you don't know how printing works, here is a short explanation. Print jobs are sent to the printer as spooled files. This means that the files are put in a temporary location so that the printer can access a print queue and print jobs at its own speed. If you stop the spooler and its files, most of the time, you both cancel printing and delete the print job.

Note To use this method, you must have Computer Administrator status. If you are using your own printer, you most likely have Computer Administrator status. If you are printing to a shared printer, you might have to ask the system administrator to cancel the print job for you.
Step 1: Start Notepad
To stop the print spooler and its files, we will have you create and run a script file that will automatically stop the service. This sounds difficult, but it really isn't. Just follow these steps carefully.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type notepad, and then click OK. Notice that a blank Notepad document opens.

Step 2: Copy a command script to Notepad
Now we will have you copy and paste some commands to the Notepad document.

1. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text:
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler
2. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy.
3. In Notepad, right-click in the blank document, and then click Paste.
4. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text:
C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd
5. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy.
6. In Notepad, click Save As on the File menu.
7. In the File Name box, right-click, and then click Paste.
8. Click Save.

Step 3: Run the command script file
Now that you have created the command script file, you will run it. To run it, you will copy and paste the name of the command script file in the Run box.

1. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text:
C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd
2. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy.
3. Click Start, and then click Run.
4. In the Open box, right-click, and then click Paste.
5. Click OK.
6. Notice that the Command Prompt window opens to run the command script file that you created. Notice also that this window closes automatically when the command script file has finished running. If you do not see the Command Prompt window open, check that you saved the command script file by using the correct name and that you entered the correct command script file name in the Run box.

If this method does not work the first time, or if you cannot print anything after you use this method, restart your computer, and then try again.

The print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing im receiving this error message i have a hp c 4580 printer


If one job isn't printing, cancel it, and let the other one's print. I read somewhere there is a 2GB limit on print spool jobs...and if you reach that limit, everything locks up. I am not sure on it...but if you have a realy large document, either print it alone, well, just print it alone. Try to spool your print jobs from the smallest ones first, and don't overload it. The is especially true of printing pictures...because if you don't resize them, they can be especially large files (and large pictures) sometimes you don't realize that what you are viewing on screen is only 26% of the actual picture size...especially if you have say, a 8MP or higher camera pixel size capability.

Need to clear all printing jobs from the printer 4250 HP


It's probably queued up on the computer you're using. If this is Windows or Mac, look for a printer icon toward the bottom-right corner of your screen.

If you don't have it and you're on Windows, click Start: Control Panels: Printers. Find your printer.

Inside the new screen, you should be able to first pause the printer, then cancel all the jobs. You may have to highlight all of them, then right-click to get cancel.

When they're all cleared out, go back to where you paused the printer, then hit Resume printing.

How to interrupt a printing job and cancel it


Hi, I hope I can help.

Your printer has some of the pages stored in memory, and your computer also has some of the pages stored in the memory (spooler) on your computer.

If you turn off the printer, the computer thinks the printer went off-line and it waits for it to come back on, and then just keep churning off pages. OR.... Something will get messed up and 100's of garbage pages will start churning out.

The deal is to clean out the memory on the printer, AND clean out the spooler on the computer.

Simplest way (hopefully) is to turn off both units. That may solve it. However, sometimes the spooler on the computer will keep trying to print. Down in the lower right hand corner of your screen should be a picture of a printer. Double click that and you'll see the print job. You should be able to select the print job, hit delete, and clear it from the spooler.

Hope this works.
