It could be a print job that has stalled.
Open the print queue (on the taskbar by the system clock)
and cancel all the documents that are there ,then reprint and see what happens.

Also make sure the printer is plugged in and online.

Brother MFC-L2700DW printer will scan to computer, but won't print


You could, remove it from devices and printers and reinstall it. should only take 10 maybe 15 mins to do. Quick and simple , I know it doesn't answer the question as to why your printer is misbehaving, but it will get you printing again.

HP C7280 wont print custom size card stock 7.25 x10.25 wont feed or paper jam, however will print when fed on the left side but no guide to keep paper straight. how to correct this issue, Ive cleaned


Your question does not provide all the information necessary to absolutely resolve the issue. By now I suspect you've already resolved the issue or given up. Perhaps someone can use this info.

Need to know: Operating System (Windows 95/98/Vista/XP/7/8), Application (Word, Paint, Firefox, etc), type of job (jpg, pdf, text, etc.)

There is no short answer possible; but, I may be able to help with a generic answer. I can't help on Apple but I suspect it's the same as Windows, (and Unix, Linux, OS2, etc.).

Provided the Printer works proper on normal 8 ½ x 11 stock (print media) then it is not a printer or Queue issue unless it is just confused. As a printer technician I have seen this resolved by rebooting the machine(s) and trying to print again. If that doesn't resolve the issue you need to know:

The application you send the print job from tells the Queue what stock (letter, legal, card, envelope etc) to expect. The Queue, a component of all versions of Windows, is created when the printer is initially installed on the computer. The Queue holds print jobs and then sends them on to the printer when the printer tells the Queue it is ready. Some applications are more robust allowing more options than others. However, printing from inside a browser is frequently sketchy. If you're printing from an application that is different from the one that created it you may face an issue of the printer not getting the correct stock information.

Very Important: First before you attempt to send the print job check the settings in the app to insure your job has the right paper stock selected. Then, as you prepare to send the job from the app to the Queue before you hit the final "Print" button, check the "Paper Source/Size/Media" boxes in the "Printer Properties" to make sure your sending the right stock information. If that doesn't fix it; try to save your project in a format readable by another application and try to print it from the other app.

Note: 1. Print jobs are served to the printer by the Queue one at a time on a FIFO (First In First Out) basis. Sometimes print jobs get hung up in the Queue. A hung print job will block all subsequent jobs until the hung job is cleared. When a print job is sent and nothing happens (no printer activity or error messages on the screen.) look in the System Tray for a printer icon. Open it up and see if there are any jobs hung. If so cancel them and start afresh. This may require a reboot.
2. Print Queues can (rarely) become corrupt and must be deleted and rebuilt.

There are still variables too numerous to mention.

Whew! I've never tried to help resolve this issue in a post. Good Luck!

HP LaserJet 4100 for all applications in windows 7. When I go to print a document and click on print. The print screen exits, the print job doesn't processes, and the print queue stays empty. Noth


Ideas? Yes. I had this happen on an LJ 1000 while trying to print my tax return. I tried emptying the queue, removing power from the printer, etc, etc. What finally worked was to empty the queue (again), disconnect power from the printer, shut down the computer, plug in the printer again, restart the computer, queue up a print job again, and hit PRINT.
Hope this works for you

3. Check if there any documents that are on queue in top of the document your trying print recently.
4. Select that document, Right Click then Cancel.
5. If there's an error in deleting the file. You need to reboot your computer to reset everything in queue on your printer.

Printing blocked by a document showing being deleted


Sounds like a stuck document is in the print queue. Try to clear the print queue first before sending another print job otherwise it will just accumulate in the queue. The steps below will help you clear the queue.

HP P1005 PRINT JOB SITS IN QUE, WO'T PRINT


Does it show "Printing" or "Spooling" in the job queue window?

Open the Job queue window, then highlight and cancel the print job. Send a small print job to the printer and make sure that the PC and the printer are communicating.

If the failure re-occurs, then clear the queue again and close it and restart i=the queue.

I am trying to print from my netbook using an hp printer. i am getting an error message saying that the print queue is full.


Yes, printer won't print if print queue is full. The fact is you are lucky your printer is giving you this message. Most printers, when queue is full, will just remain silent and leave you wandering what in the world has gone wrong.

Solution is to clear the print queue. See, when you send to print and you send another when the previous hasn't printed, they queue up. Now if for any reason the first fails to print, all others will just remain queued up but will not print until you clear the print jobs queued up.

To do, this go to start/control panel/printers. Right click on printer icon and select open. The respective print queue box appears. It should have all of the print jobs listed there in the box. On the menu bar click on printer and select "Cancel all documents." A box appears asking you to confirm if you want to cancel, answer yes. Then try to print again. If it still fails to print restart your PC and try to print again.
