Not printing says WAITING

I have tried printing and won't print. Only says waiting.
Turn off printer- shut down computer.

Nothing seems to work. Last time it printed was when I was printing a double sided sheet.

Please help

First step try a system restore, always solves things quicker...If that does not help then uninstall hardware and and driver from pc.Restart pc and install from scratch as if you have first got this printer.This should solve the problem.

Mary,

Hi. I can help you out with this. I just need to know a few things.

What operating system are you using? ( Mac, XP, Vista, etc.)

Also can you confirm the model of the printer that you're trying to use?

I'll provide you with a SIMPLE solution, rather than a bunch of complicated steps.

Hope that sounds good to you.

    Perfect.

    OK Mary we're going to just do a simple fix. (While the Printer is ON)

    You're going to:

    Go into the Control Panel. It's under Start, Settings, CONTROL PANEL

    Once you're there double-click, PRINTERS and Faxes

    Select your printer from the list, right-click the printer, and choose uninstall.

    Restart the Computer

    Once the computer restarts it will detect the printer and reinstall the printer software automatically.

    You should be up and running after that.

    Let me know the results or if you run into any bumps.

    Thanks!

My printer keeps going offline. What can I do to get it back online?


I understand your Printer is offline on your Windows 8 computer.
The easiest thing to do is just rebooted everything. Turn off router, computer and printer.
Wait a few minutes and turn on router, computer and printer.
Before trying to print make sure there is nothing waiting to be printed. Right click on your printer and see whats printing. Remove if anything there. Try to print again.
If the printer still showing offline try installing and running HP Print and Scan Doctor.
Download and install at this location.

Why does my 7520 printer print old documents.


Your computer has "queued" various pages to be printed.
When it detects that it cannot completely complete the output, it restarts the sending of the information to the printer.

From the Windows "Control Panel", select "Printers".
Select your printer. Click to "show what is printing".
From there, you can select an item, and choose to "cancel" it.

Blinking green light


Try disconnecting the computer from the printer and shutting it down by removing the power cord and then also shut down the computer for a minute or so and then reboot it and check in "Printers" and see if it has anything waiting to be printed and if so clear out the queue. Flashing green light indicates that the printer is receiving data from the computer and/or printing so you shut it all down and cold reboot to clear out the computer confusion in both the computer and the printer.

My printer Epson t13 has a general error it says ''delete all print jobs and turn off the printer and remove any foreign objects from inside the printer. after a few minutes turn the printer back on. But...


Good morning to you!
It might be worth trying to go to the "print page" on your computer and remove the print queue, then there is nothing waiting to be printed. Then disconnect the printer for 30 sec. or so and restart your computer. Give it a try, good luck,

My Brother P-Touch QL 500 stopped printing and keeps blinking


Either the wrong printer is selected or the wrong size label inserted. Another possibility could be the incorrect size label in the format.

New printer does not work. get message printer busy with something else


Hey Donald hows it going, sounds like the printer is frozen up or theres a file still waiting to print thats jammed so what we are going to do is the following

press cancel on the printer itself and see if the printer will clear the printer if not,
disconnect the printer from the computer itself turn the printer off and unplug it from the wall wait a few minutes and plug it back into the wall and dont plug it into the computer just yet make sure that its fuctioning by printing out a test page from the printer itself if this works then we know its not the printer but the computer. this ushally means there is a full que or something that hasnt been printed or paused which happens here and there best thing for that would just be simply shutting down your computer waiting a minute and turn it back on and then attach the printer while its on. and see if you get the same results as you did before only this time do a test page through wordpad or notepad just put a line or two of text for testing purposes.

See what happens did we get it?

if not please let me know and I will or others will try to help the best we can in getting this issue sorted out for you.

My printer


Start by disconnecting the printer from the computer and turning it off. Wait a few minutes before reconnecting it. While waiting, open your pinter settings and insure you have nothing waiting to be printed from you computer. Once this is verified, restart your computer, then reconnect the printer. Most likely the print que is simply "stuck" on the one file.

When i send a print nothing happens. I opened the lid to check for a jam. nothing. but when i closed it the screen on mu printer says carriage jam.....


Sounds like the "deadly embrace" problem...

Computer says to itself "waiting on printer status"
Printer says to itself "waiting on computer status"
Results....nothing.

Try this:
1. Shutdown (using the normal operating system shutdown) the computer.
2. Turn off and unplug both the computer AND the printer at the same time.
3. Plug the printer back in first (and if necessary, turn it on) THEN
4. Plug in the computer and allow it to start normally.

Now try a print.
Let me know if this works for you.
