Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

Try to turn the printer off then restart or reboot your computer. Then pull up the print queue then delete the documents in queue. I hope this helps.

Have a wonderful day.

Need to delete document in queou


Try the steps below to clear print jobs stuck in the print queue:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. 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.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.

Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I need to restart my computer everytime i want to print


Sounds like you have print jobs stuck in the print queue. Try deleting all documents in the queue and resending print job. Some print drivers choak on PDF documents. Try updating the print driver by download it from the manufacturer.

Try deleting printer then re-installing printer and updating the print driver.

Printing blocked by a document showing being deleted


Sounds like a stuck document is in the print queue. Try to clear the print queue first before sending another print job otherwise it will just accumulate in the queue. The steps below will help you clear the queue.

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.
