Question about Printers & Copiers
Can not delete document from printer que. Status shows deleting but it will not delete or print.
You need to restart the print spooler service. Go to control panel>Administrative Tools>Services>there will be a list of programs. Find Print Spooler and right click on it. Stop service then restart. That will clear the print queue and allow you to start printing again..good luck let me know if you have any questions.

Please be reminded that the printer has to be switched on and the computer needs to recognize it in order to be able to cancel the job.
