Can not clear the print que

I canceled a print job last night. Tonight I tried to print a photo and nothing happened, so I checked the print que. The item I thought I canceled last night is still there. The status says Deleting / Printing. I have turned the printer off and the computer. How do I get rid of it?

Re: can not clear the print que

Follow these steps to resolve the issue. Step one: Delete the print queue Open Print Setup Utility located in the Application/Utilities folder. Double-click your printer in the printer list to open the print queue. Click the Stop Jobs icon. Click to select the document, and then click the Delete icon. Repeat the steps for all the jobs in the print queue. When the print queue is empty, click the Start Jobs icon. A message appears: No Jobs Printing . This indicates that the queue is clear. When you have cleared the queue, retry your print job. If the procedure has not resolved the issue, repeat steps 3 and 4. If the issue still persists, continue to the next step. Step two: Remove the printer from the list Open Print Setup Utility , located in the Application/Utilities folder. Click to select the Photosmart icon. Click the red X to delete the printer from your system. Close all open windows, and restart your computer. Step three: Add the printer to the list Open Print Setup Utility located in the Application/Utilities folder. Click Add . Select the printer that you want to add, and click the Add button. After a few seconds, your printer appears in the printer list, and your printer is ready to print.

I can't print the items in my printer queue. How do I get them to print?

It sounds like you have a print job stuck in the print que. When this happens the print jobs after the stuck one will not print either. You will need to clear the print que and reprint the jobs. Here is a link to an article showing how to purge the print que and get your printer back printing again.

Print que on hp 4300 says "printing" but nothing happens and I cannot clear que


This is a common problem with Windows machines. If a print job gets corrupted in the print que it will stop and block all other jobs from printing. It will also block the job from being deleted normally. You have to stop the print que service and then delete the print jobs from the que. Here is a link to a full article that shows how to stop the que, delete the print jobs and restart the que to restore printing.

Won't print it always says document in queue

This sometimes happens if a print job freezes before, or during the print. I would suggest two things. Open up your print que, which you should be able to access from the bottom right hand side of your screen in your task bar. Right click, and open print que. If there is a print job in the que that says printing, try to right click on the job and cancel it. If this does not work and you have not done so already, restart your computer and your printer! Go back into the que if you have to and if the job is still there, right click and cancel job again. Then, retry printing a something different from your printer. This should solve your problem.

I have an HP printer. There is a full page photo that will not print. When I try to cancel the job is states deleting but does not delete. It deletes other added print jobs but not that one which is...

You have to clear out all documents one by one in the print que before you can delete the one causing the trouble. On the bottom right side of your pc screen, find the picture of the printer and right click with your mouse on it. Open your print que and right click on each document and choose "delete" until therer are none left in the print que. If this does not clear that last document, then unplug your usb cord that connects the printer to your pc and wait a few moments, and then plug it back in. This should clear it out.

Hi our dell 1720 printer has been printing hundereds of pages of nothing but gibberish since saturday. At first I thought it was trying to print a file someone deleted before cancelling from the que but...

I've found when this happens to our printers after we reload the driver the printer prints fine. You may not even need the disk. You can go to the Advanced tab in the printer properties and the driver should still be loaded on the PC's hard drive.

Print document w deleting status in que is frozen

This happens periodically, for me restarting the machine has always fixed the issue. If it didn't for you I would suggest removing and reinstalling the printer.

Documents won't delete out of que Epson CX8400

Are you using Windows XP? If you are go to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services and stop the Print Spooler Service. This should clear the pending print jobs.

Then re-start the service.

Last page of printing stops 3/4 through the page.

Try cleaning your heads with appropriate solution. Then, cancel all print jobs. Try again. If it does the same i would turn it off, inplug all the cables, replug all and turn on. Try again. If still no good, completely unistall printer then reinstall it. Try once more. Good luck
