    I have the same problem. Got the printer last Jan. and no problem until recently. Looked on every website I can find and in every Dell forum. It is frustrating. I have reinstalled, changed YSB ports, nothing. I picked up a 924 at a thrift shop for $5.00 to compare. Same problem.

Try changing your firewall, it worked for me. I got my 926 a year ago with my Dell and had no problems until I replaced my expired Norton w/a freebe that was very aggessive then the problems started. Would not comunicate sometiimes and when it did it printed once than froze. Would not delete printed doc or print the next. I remembered that McAfee made my old Emachine freeze or crash. Put Norton back on and no more problems. Hope this helps you.

Try to clear the print queue first before sending a new print job. Follow these steps to clear print jobs stuck in the print queue(for Windows):

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

3. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

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

5. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.

Canon 4150 wont print , goes into queue


Have you gone into the queue and deleted the print jobs and started again? Do you have any error lights? If so there could be a hardware problem with the printer.
Try taking out the toner and putting it back in. Sometimes that will force the printer to reset intself.
If that doesn't help then you may have to delete the printer from the system and re-install it.

Printing problem


To delete the file from printer cue, unplug printer, restart computer with printer unplugged, and delete file.

If it still does not work after deleting files, reinstall all printer software using software CD provided with the printer.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.

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.
