My printer cancels all of my jobs before they can print

I received my printer from a friend who said that it did not work.  Whenever I attempt to print a word document, the printer cancels the jobs before they can print.  I cleared out all of the cancelled jobs but the printer is still listed as "stopped." I am using my HP Photosmart C4480 with a Macbook if that helps.......

Sounds like a driver maybe messed up.
Normal 0 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

Cancel print job with a linux operating system


HI,
You've sent a print job to your printer and the green light is blinking, but the printer is not printing. The light blinks for a very long time.
The blinking light indicates that the printer is recieving your print request and will print shortly. If the document you are attempting to print is very large or contains many graphics or images, the printer must spool this data into its memory before printing. This can take quite a bit longer than usual. PDF files are notorious for taking longer than other document types.

In this case, it is best to wait a period of time before taking action. Give the printer 10 minutes and see if it prints.

If it does not print within this window of time, do the following.

1. In the bottom right corner of your screen, you will see a small printer icon. Double click on this icon to open the printer job menu.
2. You will see your print job located there, with other information, including its status.
3. Select the job by right clicking on it and select Cancel.
4. The job should cancel itself.
5. Unplug the printer, removing all power and leave it sit for a couple of minutes.
6. Plug the printer back in and allow it to go through its start up phase until the "Ready" indicator light is solid. This indicates that the printer is ready to recieve jobs.
7. You may now attempt to print again.

Thanks,

I tried to cancel printing jobs once in progress and had no succe


Printers will hold the documents in the memory of the printer. Windows holds the documents until they are received by the printer.
Go to the printer and cancel the job, then open the printer by double clicking on it in Printer and Faxes (if in XP) and cancel the document from the menu while the document is highlighted. (document, cancel)
A trick I have used is to remove the paper from the printer, wait until the last sheet is printed and turn off the printer. Windows will pop up with an error that includes cancel the print job.

Problem printing from my acer aspire one


Can you provide a little more information. Is the printer green power light on but neither of the red lights. Does the printer just sit there doing nothing, or does it go through the motions of printing and produce a blank sheet. If it does nothing, can you check the print queue (double click the printer icon). If there are a mass of jobs waiting (all the times you've attempted to print something), right click and select cancel all jobs. When the print list is clear, right click the printer icon and select properties. Now click on test print. If nothing happens as before, cancel this job also. Then go to control panel and uninstall the Epson printer software (the "driver"). Reboot and reinstall the printer driver. Report back if it's still not behaving.
