Hp printer won't clear print queue after printing

Recently we have been getting a lot of postscript gibberish pages when trying to print. Then after reseting the printer I might get 1 or 2 prints and then it stops. Looking at the print queue (mac 10.7) it shows the last job still printing even after it has printed and is done, but won't clear the job so the next job can start.

    Have reinstalled print drivers to no avail. The networked printer is on a private subnet so resetting to factory defaults is a royal pain. Right now we can print new jobs to it but have to manually delete each print job from the queue after it has completed otherwise no other print jobs can be sent.

    FYI, it is only Mac systems printing to the network printer

Possible that a reset might help. It is worth trying to re-install.Shut down PC system and restart with the printer removed , then install the driver software and on completion connect the printer-hardware- to be installed.Test and see if it works or else you might need help from HP support.Check this link : http://www8.hp.com/uk/en/support-drivers.html

I have HP 4600dn and getting service error 49.2FCC. What does that mean


I'm not certain of this, but its possible that there are embedded postscript fonts in your document that are causing the printer to choke.
What I would do is to load up your file in Publsiher, and then save it as a Word.doc file. and then try to print.
I just looked at the service manual and this is the recommendation to try first.

How to stop printing


While your question is not quite clear, I will provide a couple of suggestions. Usually when you press the cancel button, it pauses the printer and then you must use the arrow keys to select cancel job and then press the checkmark. Also check any computers to make sure that they do not have a job in their print queue. If the printer does not send back a job complete command, sometimes the computer will keep resending the job. Failing all else, restart your computer and your printer. Are the pages that are printing gibberish or is it the correct print job? If gibberish, you might have a corrupted print driver or the file you are printing might be corrupted.

My Lexmark s605's print queue won't clear, and so the printer has stopped working altogether


Please follow the steps below to clear the print queue and restart the print spooler of your computer.

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)


Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Only scans not print anything


did you download the software and/or drivers necessary for your printer on your computer before connecting the usb cable from the printer to the pc? You can get the software necessary to use your printer for free at hp's website www.hp.com.

If you have the software and its still not printing, try clearing documents out of your print queue. Click on the arrow next to the clock on your screen and find the picture of the printer. Right click with your mouse on the picture of the printer and open the print queue. Delete any unprinted items in this area and close the print queue. then try a test page.

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.

The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.

After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.

Your machine requires the Postscript option installed in order to print from your Mac. The printer is printing gibberish because it cannot understand the postscript driver from the Mac. .

Dsc328 will not print using a Mac


If your copier / printer does not have postscript 3 option installed, it will not print from MAC. Print a configuration page: "User tools", "Printer features" "list print" (or similar), "configuration page". Check under the heading of "printer languages"......you'll see stuff like "PCL 5c", "PCL 6", "RPCS", etc. If no "postscript 3", it is not compatible with your MAC, and you don't want to know how much that option is for your machine! Ridiculous!

Prints gibberish


You need to ensure you have the correct drivers for your computer. Adobe uses PostScript drivers to print out .pdf files. Some drivers are Printer Control Language (PCL) and do not work well with .pdf.
