You can always restart the computer, that will "unstick" a print job that gets stuck deleting.

What to do if after canceling the printing in queue document its status is still showing deleting ?


Give it a few minutes. Sometimes it takes awhile to delete the document.

If that fails, turn off the printer, wait a minute, then turn it back on. The document should be deleted.

Tried to cancel a print job--now stuck in "deleting" status. How do I fix this?


I suspect that on the bottom right of your computer screen you will see a small printer icon. Double click on the icon and it will open the print queue.

You will see the troublesome print file. Highlight the job and then go to the top of the box and delete the highlighted file.

Printer will not cancel print job


Sounds like the printer spool is frozen.

Assuming you're using WinXP and logged in as an administrator (or with admin permissions)

START
Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Services

Locate the "Print Spooler"
Right click on this and choose "restart"

This will restart the print queue and will probably try to print the job again or delete it properly. If it tries to restart, just right click on the printer job and choose cancel again..

You may need to repeat but that should at least get you back up and running with other print jobs again.

I have a Lexmark 2500 series printer. There is one printing job that I try to cancel. When I chose the cancel option, the status of that job changed to deleting... and has been like that for the last 24...


Hi,
I assume you've turned everything off and back on again, including the printer and the job is still stuck.

For windows XP,
click on the start button, click on run
type
net stop spoolsv
click OK
wait 30 seconds
click on the start button, click on run
type
net start spoolsv
click OK
Open the printer and refresh the print queue, has the job cleared?

If not we will need to clear the temporary spool files from the spool folder.

click on the start button, click on run
type
net stop spoolsv
click OK

The usual path to the spool folder is
C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS,

Delete the files in this folder only, if you are not sure do not delete them.
Close this window.

click on the start button, click on run
type
net start spoolsv
click OK

Alternatively, if you are comfortable using the run command, do the following in sequence. Be very careful what you type *.* means everything in the folder.

net stop spooler
del %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\spool\PRINTERS\*.* /q /f
net start spooler

/Q - for no prompt
/F - to force the deletion

Follow these steps to resolve the issue. Step one: Delete the print queue Open Print Setup Utility located in the Application/Utilities folder.

Step two: Remove the printer from the list Open Print Setup Utility , located in the Application/Utilities folder. Click to select the Photosmart icon. Click the red X to delete the printer from your system. Close all open windows, and restart your computer.
