Hello, I know you wrote this seven months ago, but if you are still having issue, you have to press the "system Monitor" button on the printer. then press ok for print jobs, then the right and left arrors to cancel
It is aggrivating how canon put no shortcut button on the printer to cancel this.

It is under chapter 3 in teh advanced guide you can get at the link below on canon's site.

nice day.

    also, you may have to clear out your print queue on your computer if the jobs are stored in memory there. if they make it to the printer and or stored in its memory, then the above method should work or turn off printer will delete job in printer memory as well - that is what I did untl I read manual.

    You can practice by printing something with no paper in the printer.

All you need to do is uninstall your printer to remove everything and then try re-installing again because otherwise it may be difficult for you to cancel all jobs at once.

Printer will not switch on. stuck on standby


Remove any other pending print jobs in the printers que until you are left with just the problem ones. Just click on each print job and choose cancel!

If a print job in the que shows "deleting" but never completes the command;

  • Go to Start then choose Run
  • Type " net stop spooler " and press Enter
  • Wait for the DOS window to open then close.
  • Go to Start then Run & type "net start spooler" press Enter

If this does not work Go To Step2


If that does not cancel the print job:

Your Windows XP spool directory is located at


On a Windows 2000 machine the path is usually


It will Usually will contain files looking like these:


There will be two files for each remaining print job. Just delete these and reboot your computer. Your print queue should now be cleared.

*** To delete the print files type " del *.* " in the correct directory and press Enter. * Make sure you are in the right path i.e., C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS

If that does not work Go To Step3

If you are printing over the network, and cannot get the print job to clear the que after the above steps:

Go to the computer that has the shared printer attached and perform Steps 1 & 2 above.

If that does not work then go to the computer where the Print Job was sent from and perform steps 1 & 2 on that computer.

If everything above did not work then try this...

Step 3

If all of this does not work then run a disk check on the computer that has the printer attached

  • Go to Start then choose Run
  • Type " CMD " and press Enter
  • Wait for the DOS window to open.
  • Type " CHKDSK C: /R /F " if C:\ is where your OS is installed!


  • Answer Y for yes and press enter
  • Reboot your computer and wait for the Disk Check to complete

A print job, although cancelled, doesn't leave the printing list.

Please try this approach:
  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

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.

Trying to cancel a print job and it will not clear

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Okay, seems like the spooler is stuck, here is how to get it to reset.

  1. Hold down the windows key and press R
  2. in the run mene write (without quotes) exactly:"Net stop spooler"AND then click OK
  3. Go back to the printer jobs and press F5 on the window to refresh, everything should be gone.
  4. Click File and then select Cancel all print jobs
  5. Hold down the windows key and press R
  6. Write in the run menu again "Net START spooler" and click OK
  7. Go back to the printer jobs and press F5 to refresh, they should be gone now for good.
If the problem is not solved, repeat it onces more. This will cause a corruption in the spooler files and it will reset itself.

After this everything should work normally.

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.

Sent too many labels to printer - need to reset

As the previous expert has stated, with the printer paused, press the cancel key to cancel the job. One thing to note, is depending on how your software sends the print jobs, you may say print 1000 labels, but the software sends it one at a time, so basically you have 1000 print jobs in the printer. If you pause the printer, press and hold the cancel key. Hold it for about 2 mins. This should clear the buffer.
