HP printer will only print jibberish!

I've tried cancelling all print jobs. Turning off and restarting computer. Unplugging printer and restarting. As soon as I turn it on, it spits out page after page with one line of jibberish.

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

The printer is printing and I can t cancel job, tried on off cancel button everything


Hey Surprise,
Trying turning the printer off and disconnecting it from the computer and from electricity for a few minutes (that should reset any print jobs stored in it's memory). In the mean while, check the computer for pending print jobs, and if necessary - cancel them.
Good luck!

Every time I cancel a print job in process, the printer does not clear the queue. If I cancel it manually it shows "deleting document" but never clears the queue and all other print jobs backup. My only...


Several HP All-in-One models have this very same problem. The only way you can get rid of the unwanted job is to reboot your computer.
You could also try unplugging the printer and plugging it again to the computer, or just turning it off and on, but most of the times rebooting is the only option.

It takes unduly long time to cancel a print-command on any printer, when we work on Windows. What is the surest way to kill a printing command.


Open "Printers and Faxes" from the Start Menu. Open the print queue for your printer by double-clicking on your printer's icon. There will be a list of all the current print jobs. There you can right-click on a job and select Cancel, Restart, etc. Cancel will remove it from the list.

If you are not on the computer that is connected to the printer, you might not have permission to change the queue. Then you should go to the computer that is actually connected, and use this procedure there.

I'm unable to delete a job from the queue. And therefore, I'm unable to print anything else. Any ideas of what to do? Thank you!


Open the print Queue, click the print job that is hanging and then from the menu, I believe under file, click pause. Once it is paused tried to delete the print job.

My printer has a job waiting that I can't cancel. I've tried everything including turning off the printer to erase the memory, and completely restarting my computer. Nothing will delete this print job


your job is stuck in the printer que, to cancel this go to control panel, open printer and other, right click on the printer icon, delete the job in que (are you sure you want to delete, yes)..........and you are done

Unable to cancel a job


Sounds like the printer spool is frozen.

Assuming you're using WinXP and logged in as an administrator (or with admin permissions)

START
Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Services

Locate the "Print Spooler"
Right click on this and choose "restart"

This will restart the print queue and will probably try to print the job again or delete it properly. If it tries to restart, just right click on the printer job and choose cancel again..

You may need to repeat but that should at least get you back up and running with other print jobs again.

Will not print


Try unplugging the USB cable from the back of the computer, not from the back off the printer. Also, try deleting the printer from/at the printer/fax page and restarting your computer so it will reinstall. In either case, when checking the printer/fax folder, make sure there is nothing pending printing. If there is, click on delete all pending printing jobs. If there is a print job pending and you can not cancell/delete this job, then you must delete the printer icon and restart your computer. Aloha!

hi!

Try to cancel your document in the printers menu even if you restart the pc or the printers memory stores the previous command.

1.The idea is that printers has its own memory unless you cancel the document that you print.

e-mail me at wendel_tenebroso@yahoo.com if the problem persist
