- Go to control panel - under printers, look and see if the printer name shows up twice (or
more). - If so, it will have numbers after each one. Delete all the
versions of the same printer - If one says it has print job pending,
right click and "cancel all documents" - When you restart, the printer driver will re-install correctly
This usually happens when you unplug the printer cable and then plug it into a different USB port
With the printer power on, unplug and then plug in the printer from/to the computer. This should force the printer to be reinstalled.
Check the printer status.
Click START>Control Panel>Devices and Printers>click on your printer. check the status for any error messages. On the printer status, delete all pending jobs. Once the printer status display shows that all pending jobs have been deleted, retry printing.
Let me know if printing is reestablished. Thanks.
When you reinstalled it did you unplug it from the computer. Often links to printers are lost, it's a Windows thing, frequently people reinstall in desperation, forgetting to uninstall the original and disconnect the printer USB. So, unplug the printer USB from the computer, go to control panel,and printers and delete the printers that you are going to reinstall which you see there. Then go to add and remove programs and remove all software. If there are print jobs pending you may not be able to uninstall or delete, so click the printer and delete all jobs pending, then try the uninstall again. When all is uninstalled, restart the system and reinstall, plugging in the printer only when the software asks for it. It being an HP the uninstall option may well be on the installation disc so you can use that if you wish.
Well this could be a number of issues. First of all try to make sure the printer is on, (yes I know very stupid request but I've seen it happen thousands of times). Then make sure the printer is connected to the PC, either via USB or LPT port or whatever the case maybe. Thirdly, you want to make sure that the printer is installed on the PC. If you goto START/PRINTERS & FAXES, and see if there are any other documents that are stuck or pending, try to delete them out or delete the printer and reinstall it. Then try to print again.
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!
There is a option in printer box "Purge Print document" you try that option, After Purge then delete the document, which is still present in your box. At a time turn off the printer. All the pending printing commands will delete.
