My 1800 is printing extremely slowly, until I delete the print on my computer. After the printing job is deleted, instead of ending the printing session...it just speeds up and continues to print over the same line.
I recently upgraded to Mac osx 10.5.7 and after reloading drivers, was printing some perfect images. I lost my external hard drive (due to lightening, I think) a few weeks ago and this is the first time I've tried printing since then.

Sometimes if the printer cable is unplugged it will reset. Try that. Also the printer menu should include cancel print jobs. Is that cleared? I would also turn off computer for a moment, and turn back on. Thqat may clear the print job.....

If so clean out your temporary files and defrag the drive.
Printers in Windows spool the job to a temporary file and then retrieves it.If the temp folder is full or the drive is fragmented this will cause your issue.

having to save all your work, close all your applications, and restart
your computer. Here's how (note that this is intended for Windows XP
systems, but a similar approach works on other systems - if this
doesn't work for you reply below with your Operating System and
Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)
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.
Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)
Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your
taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View ->
Voila :) You should see that annoying hung print job finally
disappear completely and you should now be able to resume printing
without having to restart your computer.
