Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My 1800 is printing extremely slowly , until I

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.


HELP!!!

Your printer may have recieved a spike from the same lightning and fried the circuit board.
Is it under warranty?
If so call Epson and get an exchange unit.

Are you using Windows?
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.

My last print job gets stuck deleting in the queue!


Go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS on your PC and you will see two files listed fior each of the outstanding print jobs. These will have the file extensions .SHD and .SPL

You need to delete both of these files then power off and power on your printer to be able to continue printing.

How to force delete print jobs Fortunately, there is a way to delete the hung print job without 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 version):
  • 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 -> Refresh.
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.
