How to cancel a print job

Hello all,

my problem is that when a send to the printer a job for example 2000 pages and I want to cancel it, I can't.

The job has left the computer so I can not cancel it from the PC, but I haven't found a way to cancel it from the machine.
The red stop button is not responding.

This only happens when I print, because when I am making copies I can cancel the jobs.

Thanking you in advance for your help,

Kind regards,

Press the printer key. The printer screen will appear, and reset job will be an option. You must clear the print queue on the computer or it will just get sent again.

How to stop printing

While your question is not quite clear, I will provide a couple of suggestions. Usually when you press the cancel button, it pauses the printer and then you must use the arrow keys to select cancel job and then press the checkmark. Also check any computers to make sure that they do not have a job in their print queue. If the printer does not send back a job complete command, sometimes the computer will keep resending the job. Failing all else, restart your computer and your printer. Are the pages that are printing gibberish or is it the correct print job? If gibberish, you might have a corrupted print driver or the file you are printing might be corrupted.

My HL 2270DW won't stop printing goobldegook. One or so lines on each page, and the printer job does not show in the cue so it can not be cancelled. I can not print any jobs because of this malfun

Has it worked before? Many of these newer printers can print what are called Postscript documents, and you may have a Postscript driver instaled instead of the regular driver, or both and have selected the wrong driver when sending the job ORyou have an internal circuit board that'sgone bad

I entered a print job that I want to cancel. How do I cancel printing?


Click on the printer icon at the lower right hand corner of your screen.

This will bring up the print spooler dialog. Make sure the print job you want to cancel is selected.

You will find the Cancel command in the menu.

Hope this helps.

Printer not printing

Go to the printer properties and make sure there is not a previous print job. Cancel all print jobs. Then send a test print to the printer.

HP D7160 Wont Print From PC

Did you check the manufacturers website for a new driver. This is the first step in the process. Your steps so far have been good. But the process is stepwise.

Not printing and nothing is paused or on the print list.

First of all you must let canceled print jobs finish deleting before sending new jobs, if the job is taking too long try restarting the computer with the printer on to clear the jobs this usually works if not then after restart open the printers folder and cancel all jobs here. let them finish deleting while the printer is still on (they must remain in communication during deleting jobs. Once all jobs are gone, remove the power brick from the printer for about a minute then reinsert and let the printer start up if it doesn't after a minute or so just turn it on once it finishes then try printing again.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner

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

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.

If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

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.
