Question about Epson WorkForce WF-3540 All-in-One InkJet Printer

Print jobs keep cancelling

Everytime I print something and set the quality to something higher than "Standard" the print job cancels mid print. If I lower the quality to "standard" or lower, the print job completes. I do not have anything in my print queue at the time either.

    "I have printed high resolution files from my computers in the past. This is a recent error. Driver is updated, Firmware is updated. I am having this issue from two separate computers on the same network. Printer is hooked up to my wireless router via bluetooth. I have started and stopped the spooler as Epson suggested. And as far as my computer capabilities, there should be no issue with printing a high resolution file: 3.30 GHz AMD FX 6100 six-core processor 16 GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) AMD Radeon HD 6900 GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3"

For anyone else having this problem (my HP Officejet would print a few pages of a large print job then spontaneously 'cancel' and I would have to set it all back up just to have it 'cancel' again on it's own) I updated the driver, rebooted it and no change. Then I happened to notice when looking at the print window that pops up where you can chose things like number of copies or only print a certain page that the printer selected in the window for 'which device do you want to use' was an HP device I didn't recognize, I clicked it and below was the Officejet, I selected that and it printed great...not sure how another device was chosen or it even printed at all, but that's all it was.

Follow these steps,
1) open command prompt and type "net stop spooler" and then "net start spooler"

SOURCE: I have an Epson Stylus

Hi, this maybe happening due to RAM or HDD space, often BIG complex color print jobs take up vast amounts of RAM and HDD space, the PC needs enough to "Spool" the print job, so that it can "Feed" it to the printer in "Chunks" of data. If you do not have sufficient HDD space or enough RAM then what you describe can happen.. so this is indeed worth a check.

Why is the light flashing on the right side


If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:

• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing.
• The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.


If it's Busy:
• Wait for the message to clear.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.


If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages:
• Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the
printing stops.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel printing.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

I would like to cancel a print job without losing all of my memory card picture selections. Seems rather silly to lose all your selections if something goes awry with your printer output.


If you are using Windows, you can cancel a print job by opening your Start menu (usually the bottom left corner of your screen) then open Devices and Printers or Printers and Faxes depending on your version of Windows.

Double left-click the name of your printer
Right-click the name of the print job you want to cancel and select cancel print job or right-click a blank part of the printer box and select cancel all print jobs.

Unable to cancel print queue


You can cancel a print job from within Windows by going to Control Panel -> Printers and double-clicking on the appropriate printer. Right-click the print job you want to cancel and select Cancel from the context menu. Anything already sent to the printer will continue to print.

You can also cancel a print job from the printer by pressing Cancel on the control panel. This applies to whatever is currently printing.
(You may want to remove any paper from the paper tray first.)

Clicking the cancel print icon stops the job from continuing to spool, but whatever is still in the printer's memory will continue to print until exhaused or the job is cancelled from the printer's control panel.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner


To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB WITH THE PROGRESS METER:
When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB FROM THE PRINTERS WINDOW:
If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS (START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS and FAXES in Windows XP).
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.
