SOURCE: Deleting - Printed

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.

SOURCE: print que problem

I had the same problem with the Lexmark Z645 and Vista. After a lot of effort I gave up and emailed Lexmark.
Their response was surprisingly helpful:

First download and run "CleanupUtility.exe" from: ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/

Then unplug the printer's USB cable and restart your PC.

Then download and run the printer's drivers/install program for Vista, from: http://downloads.lexmark.com:/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:548:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=10374&searchLang=en&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista

Only plug the USB cable back in when the drivers/install program tells you to.

After install, I think it asks for another reboot.
Then all should work fine.

SOURCE: X5150 and Vista print issue

I am posting this in hopes of helping others that are having issues with the Vista print spooler. In my case, I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Vista connected to a wireless hub. I also have a Minolta Konica 2300DL printer that is connected to the network via the wireless hub as well. Ever since obtaining this laptop, I have not been able to print to the printer other than stopping and starting the print spooler to obtain a single print 'job'. After about six months I found a post that contains the fix - I cannot take credit for it! Follow these instructions to get your printer to work:

1.) Go into control panel - I would suggest classic view as it is a little easier to navigate.

2.) Then go into User Accounts.

3.) From User Accounts go into Turn User Account Control On or Off

4.) UNCHECK Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.

5.) At this point you will probably require a reboot.

Once this exercise is complete, you should be able to print. One more item off of my Honey DOO list!!!!!

SOURCE: my last print job gets stuck deleting in the queue!

Go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS on your PC and you will see two files listed fior each of the outstanding print jobs. These will have the file extensions .SHD and .SPL

You need to delete both of these files then power off and power on your printer to be able to continue printing.

    2. Go to Control Panel
    3. Open Administrative Tools
    4. Open Services
    5. It will pop-up a Services window. Scroll through the list and look for Print Spooler.
    6. Double-click on Print Spooler, make sure Startup type is Automatic and click on the Stop button. Click on Ok button. Set the window aside.
    Second, you need to clear the print jobs in the Spool folder. To do this:

    2. Type Spool in the Search bar(Vista) or click on Run(XP) and type Spool
    3. Open Printers folder

Go to Control Panel and open Printers folder. Refresh the page. That should clear the print queue now. Try to print again. If problem is not resolved, maybe it's a communication problem. You probably need to reinstall software. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

    I have an HP printer. There is a full page photo that will not print. When I try to cancel the job is states deleting but does not delete. It deletes other added print jobs but not that one which is...


    You have to clear out all documents one by one in the print que before you can delete the one causing the trouble. On the bottom right side of your pc screen, find the picture of the printer and right click with your mouse on it. Open your print que and right click on each document and choose "delete" until therer are none left in the print que. If this does not clear that last document, then unplug your usb cord that connects the printer to your pc and wait a few moments, and then plug it back in. This should clear it out.

    There has been a pending document in the que. I tried to delete the document but now it states deleting next to the document in the que. Can not print anything.


    Open the Print Que and see if it will let you pause the print job. Then close the que and turn the printer off. Open the print que again and see if it will let you delete it. For some reason every now and again a que will hang. This process should reset the que. It will dump everything in printer memory and should release the document to delete the job. In any event pausing the job should release the printer to print other jobs.

    Printer 966. Deleting Print Job stuck in Que


    Sounds like a problem with the spooler.
    Try to bypass the spooler when printing by right clicking on your printer and select "properties"

    Select the "advanced" tab and select "print directly to the printer".
    Hoepfully this should take care of it.

    Today i was trying to print a document, but then when it came out of my printer, its not how i wanted it to be printed. So i pressed cancel on the printer itself. When i tried printing the document again,...


    You must clear the que.

    You should be able to download the print driver. Id try clearing the que first. do the three finger wave if necessary to find the process - terminate it - then reopen the que - see if the document is gone.

    Unplug your printer - ower and signal ... go get a soda . when you get back plug the stuff back in ... remember - shut the stuff off first!

    I hope this helps

    Flashing red lights and letter E on my hp printer


    basically for this printer I have found that just restarting your computer will solve almost anything. make sure there is no paper left jammed in the printer and restart. sometimes you have to delete the print job in the printer que. there should be a printer icon down my your clock, right click, open active printers, and delete your file. restart your computer and try again

    Problem with Brother MFC-9420CN


    This happened on my MFC-9420CN. It turns out the there are blue tabs inside the paper tray that hold the paper in place. If the tabs are not touching the paper, you'll get this "Check Paper Size" error. The printer thinks that you have loaded a different paper tray.
