I cancelled a document while it was printing and it is still in my queue days later as deleting and it wont let me print anything else or restart that print job.


The best way to delete the print job is to turn the printer off, then disconnect the cable from the printer to the computer. Turn the printer on with the cables off, and go to your computer and delete the document, Then once it's deleted, turn the printer off again, and then hook the cable back up. Then turn the printer back on. That should do it.

Good Luck

Hi, if the print job doesn't get deleted after a restart of your computer, do the following:
Click on start -> Run, then enter: services.msc Click OK to open the Services windows. Locate the entry "Print Spooler" in the Services list. Click it and choose "Stop" and "Restart". Your print job should then be deleted.

Print job stuck in printer que


Try to power off your computer and printer and let it stay for 5 minutes. Then turn on your printer and computer to see if pending print jobs we're cancelled.

If the problem still there, you can kill the spool process running on your taskbar. Press control + alt +delete button to open the task bar and delete the process from the processes tab.

Printer failing to print


start --> run --> services.msc

press enter / click on ok

scroll down to print spooler and right click on it and click on restart and then go back into printers and faxes and right click on printer and cancel all documents or delete the print job

If that fails to work you may need to use the utility that came with your printer to cancel it - short of that you can just turn the printer off for about 5 seconds and back on.

Not printing and nothing is paused or on the print list.


First of all you must let canceled print jobs finish deleting before sending new jobs, if the job is taking too long try restarting the computer with the printer on to clear the jobs this usually works if not then after restart open the printers folder and cancel all jobs here. let them finish deleting while the printer is still on (they must remain in communication during deleting jobs. Once all jobs are gone, remove the power brick from the printer for about a minute then reinsert and let the printer start up if it doesn't after a minute or so just turn it on once it finishes then try printing again.
