Hello,

This is a common problem with Windows machines. If a print job gets corrupted in the print que it will stop and block all other jobs from printing. It will also block the job from being deleted normally. You have to stop the print que service and then delete the print jobs from the que. Here is a link to a full article that shows how to stop the que, delete the print jobs and restart the que to restore printing.

SOURCE: can not clear the print que

Follow these steps to resolve the issue. Step one: Delete the print queue Open Print Setup Utility located in the Application/Utilities folder. Double-click your printer in the printer list to open the print queue. Click the Stop Jobs icon. Click to select the document, and then click the Delete icon. Repeat the steps for all the jobs in the print queue. When the print queue is empty, click the Start Jobs icon. A message appears: No Jobs Printing . This indicates that the queue is clear. When you have cleared the queue, retry your print job. If the procedure has not resolved the issue, repeat steps 3 and 4. If the issue still persists, continue to the next step. Step two: Remove the printer from the list Open Print Setup Utility , located in the Application/Utilities folder. Click to select the Photosmart icon. Click the red X to delete the printer from your system. Close all open windows, and restart your computer. Step three: Add the printer to the list Open Print Setup Utility located in the Application/Utilities folder. Click Add . Select the printer that you want to add, and click the Add button. After a few seconds, your printer appears in the printer list, and your printer is ready to print.

SOURCE: New Dell Inspiron connected to HP 820Cse printer. Won't print.

I've not worked with one of these cables before, but here's what I would do: Right-click on the printer icon and go to properties. You'll be looking for the tab that says "ports." Open that tab and see what port the computer thinks it's using for the printer. Chances it says it's using a parallel port, but it is in fact, using a USB port. I can't tell you which to choose without looking at what you see, but I think you might find one that makes reference to a USB port with a parallel connection of some type. Try clicking on that and see if your situation improves.

Your print resolution may be set too high. Are you printing out simple MS Word files or websites or photos? Something with graphics will always take longer to print. To adjust your print resolution settings: Click Start, then place your cursor over "Settings" and then click on "Printers and Faxes". Find your printer in the list and RIGHT click on it. Select "properties". Next, click on the "printing preferences" button, then on the tab that says "Paper/quality". Click "Advanced". In the window that opens, click on "Print Quality" and select the lowest option (usually 300 dpi). If you need better quality, you can come back in and increase the resolution in the same way.

SOURCE: HP P1005 PRINT JOB SITS IN QUE, WO'T PRINT

Does it show "Printing" or "Spooling" in the job queue window?

Open the Job queue window, then highlight and cancel the print job. Send a small print job to the printer and make sure that the PC and the printer are communicating.

If the failure re-occurs, then clear the queue again and close it and restart i=the queue.

SOURCE: Will not print periodically. Cannot clear print

Try downloading the latest driver from HP: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3435671&lang=en&
Often times the drivers on the CD are already out of date.
Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!
