Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I want to cancel a print on my hp c4180 I press cancel and it stops only to continually restart how do I cancel the print for good
Solution by www.freaksmania.org,
We cannot turn off HP printers when the printing job is going on or it runs out of paper,Paper Jam or Cartridge runs out of Ink or any other reason,ie power failure.
To Cancel printing easily,
1)First plug out the Power Cable(the System tray icon will now disappear).
2)Plug out the USB Data Cable
3)Reconnect the power Cable and turn the printer on.
4)Turn the printer off again and Connect the USB Data Cable.
5)Turn on and then your existing printing Job will be Cancelled.

I have a HP F380 all-in-one printer. I just had the same problem as everyone has described above. Try this on your printer: first pull out your paper so you do not print pages and pages of unwanted info. Next, turn off your printer, unplug the USB cable on the back of the printer, go to Start, then Control Panel then Printers and double click on the printer icon you want to fix. From the top menus select Printers then cancel all print jobs. It should finally go away. Good luck!

I found this on the Microsoft website through Google and it is the best! It looks a little difficult, but it really isn't and it works! No unpluging or rebooting needed.
First, in case that you don’t know how printing works, here is a short explanation. Print jobs are sent to the printer as spooled files. This means that the files are put in a temporary location so that the printer can access a print queue and print jobs at its own speed. If you stop the spooler and its files, most of the time, you both cancel printing and delete the print job.
Note To use this method, you must have Computer Administrator status. If you are using your own printer, you most likely have Computer Administrator status. If you are printing to a shared printer, you might have to ask the system administrator to cancel the print job for you. Step 1: Start Notepad loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution');To stop the print spooler and its files, we will have you create and run a script file that will automatically stop the service. This sounds difficult, but it really isn't. Just follow these steps carefully. a. Click Start, and then click Run. b. In the Open box, type notepad, and then click OK. Notice that a blank Notepad document opens. Step 2: Copy a command script to Notepad loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution');Now we will have you copy and paste some commands to the Notepad document. a. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text: net stop spooler
net start spooler b. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy. c. In Notepad, right-click in the blank document, and then click Paste. d. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text: C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd e. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy. f. In Notepad, click Save As on the File menu. g. In the File Name box, right-click, and then click Paste.
Note Notice that this file name differs from most other file names that you might have seen. That is because this file is a command script file. h. Click Save. Step 3: Run the command script file loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution');Now that you have created the command script file, you will run it. To run it, you will copy and paste the name of the command script file in the Run box. a. Carefully select (highlight) all the following text: C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd b. Right-click the text that you selected, and then click Copy. c. Click Start, and then click Run. d. In the Open box, right-click, and then click Paste. e. Click OK. f. Notice that the Command Prompt window opens to run the command script file that you created. Notice also that this window closes automatically when the command script file has finished running. If you do not see the Command Prompt window open, check that you saved the command script file by using the correct name and that you entered the correct command script file name in the Run box. Note If this method does not work the first time, or if you cannot print anything after you use this method, restart your computer, and then try again.
If this method worked, you are finished with this article. However, you may want to read the "Prevention tips" section to prevent this problem from happening again.

Go to START, RUN type services.msc and ENTER. Find print spooler service and STOP.
go to services.msc again and at print spooler, click on restart. This may very well work...most of the time it does for me.
