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

Printing status frozen and won't delete or print


Have you tried unpluging your printer from the computer as well as unpluging the printer from the electrical? If that doesn't work you should start from scratch... that is remove the printer from the computer memory, delete it, turn off the computer, turn on the computer and go through the installation process as if you just purchased the printer. Barring any mechanical problems as in jams or the such, the printer should return to operational status.

To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB WITH THE PROGRESS METER:
When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB FROM THE PRINTERS WINDOW:
If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS (START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS and FAXES in Windows XP).
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.
