Turn both your printer and computer off then after a few minutes turn back on. This should cancel the print job.

My Deskjet 5740 has Resume light blinking, all other lights off. Will not print. Won't let me cancel printer queue. If I push the Resume button, the printer feeds a sheet and halfway through the next...

Sounds like it is expecting a different size paper than you have in it. In the item that you are trying to print confirm the page size. If it is a document that you download or someone sent you it could be in a different page size. To cancel it you will likely have to go into the printer settings and delete it from there then power off the printer and power it back on, this should clear the job. Windows will keep trying to print the job until it is successful or deleted. To see the print jobs double click on the printer icon then just highlight and delete it.

My printer has a job waiting that I can't cancel. I've tried everything including turning off the printer to erase the memory, and completely restarting my computer. Nothing will delete this print job

your job is stuck in the printer que, to cancel this go to control panel, open printer and other, right click on the printer icon, delete the job in que (are you sure you want to delete, yes)..........and you are done

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.

Will not print

Try unplugging the USB cable from the back of the computer, not from the back off the printer. Also, try deleting the printer from/at the printer/fax page and restarting your computer so it will reinstall. In either case, when checking the printer/fax folder, make sure there is nothing pending printing. If there is, click on delete all pending printing jobs. If there is a print job pending and you can not cancell/delete this job, then you must delete the printer icon and restart your computer. Aloha!

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.
