Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
There is one print job in the queue that won't cancel. Can't cancel using the normal dialog box that shows the jobs in the queue, and can't delete the corresponding files directly from the Printers file under ..\system32\spool.
SOLUTION!! We have had a 2600n and a 1022n with the same problem as this. Changing the print processor to "RAW" and/or from ZIMFprint to WinPrint did no good in our situation (though I hear it works for Vista clients). We played around with it for several days, researching, testing, trying different methods, and FINALLY - FINALLY! - came across something that worked in both of our situations....
Hopefully, this will work for you as well: On the machine/server where the printer is installed (whether as TCP/IP or otherwise) -- In the printer properties, under the "Ports" tab, you should UNTICK THE BOX for "Enable bidirectional support" -- in other words, you need to disable bidirectional support.
(In case you're wondering, I cannot take credit for this -- I finally found this fix at the following location: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=916989 ) :)

Just stop and restart the printer pool service through administrative tools -> services.

I've been having the same issue!
The print spooler has to be stopped, then you can flush out the print jobs within the %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers directory.
If you get tired of doing this manually you can so like me and just make a batch file that you can execute.
Mine has the following code:
sc \\printservername stop spooler
sc \\printservername start spooler
I have it saved to my desktop as 'Flush Stuck Print Jobsd.bat'
Would be nice to automate this job - but this will do for the moment
Good luck everyone!

Try turning the printer off and on (switch on back of 2600n)
