  1. Hit start on your Windows and click 'run'. Type in cmd this will open the old version of what many call MS-DOS or C prompt.
  2. At the C command type: net spooler stop
    You will get a message when the spooler has stopped. Now you need to clean out the queue.
  3. Go back to start menu and click on run again. This time type:
    %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\spool\PRINTERS This will bring up the folder. Delete every file in there. (It's okay this will not harm anything.) Now you need to start the spooler again.
  4. Go back to your c prompt screen and type:
    net start spooler
    This will start the spooler for you again.
  5. Go check your printer queue. Sometimes you may need to f5 to refresh the screen. You did it. Your stuck files in your printer queue are all gone. You can begin printing again.

Our HP Color LaserJet 2600n refuses to delete a file and therefore is blocking other print jobs. The Control Panel window says it's deleting....but it's been trying to do that for two weeks. We have turned...


I'm going to assume you're using XP. I've not seen this problem yet with Vista or Windows 7, which handle the print queue differently. Sometimes the print queue gets corrupted, and a job gets "stuck" and you can't delete it. You can get rid of it this way:

  1. Click "Start" on the task bar, then "Run...".
  2. In the "Run" dialog box, type "cmd" (without the quotes) and enter.
  3. Enter the following commands as shown in the cmd.exe window that opens:
  • net stop spooler
  • del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
  • del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
  • net start spooler
  • exit
These steps delete the corrupted print queue, so the ghost print job will be gone. (In the commands above, "%systemroot%" is an environment variable that is filled in for you by Windows. Type it as shown.)

Microsoft has a knowledge base article which suggests using notepad to put these steps into a command file, a text file with a ".cmd" extension. Then you can just type the filename in the Run... dialog box and do less typing. This is handy if you find you need to clear the queue this way more than once in a while.

Hp laserjet p1008 printer sharing print command stuck in queue


Which OS is this? If its on Windows 2003 or 2008 server then using the print management console as opposed to the start > printers option should resolve this issue. Print console can be found under admin tools in the start menu

How do i get printer working


Hi,

Are you able to print test page from Printer ?
This will help us diagnose and isolate the issue further
To print self test page ( Demo page ), do these steps below

Press the right arrow button simultaneously. It should start printing the demo page.
If this works fine, this could possibly be an issue related to print jobs stuck in queue.

To clear print job stuck in Queue
Click on Start button
Click on Control panel
Click on Printers and Faxes
Check for HP Laserjet Printer icon
Right click on the printer icon and Click Cancel all documents
Once you have done the above step, disconnect the printer from PC ( if using usb ) or turn printer off

Restart your PC/laptop
Check under printers and faxes folder if the Printer status shows Ready and 0
You are ready to print

Hello guys, i´ll be very


Issue Print jobs are stuck in the print queue (spooler) on a computer running Microsoft Windows connected to the print server. Nothing prints, and the print job in the printer's queue shows a status of Printing . These print jobs cannot be deleted even on the server, and it will not disappear or print until the Print Spooler service is restarted. Solution For Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, a fix is available in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article, The Print Spooler service may stop sending print jobs to a printer that uses the standard port monitor on a Windows Server 2003-based computer . Click here to view Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 934885 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934885) . To prevent this issue from occurring, disable the bidirectional printing support for each HP printer driver installed. To do this, perform the following steps:
  1. Click Start , point to Settings , click Printers , right-click the icon representing the printer to be modified, and then click Properties .
  2. Click Ports , click to clear the Enable Bidirectional Support check box, and then click OK .
NOTE: Sharing a printer over a network is a feature of Microsoft Windows and not HP printer specific.

Can't print to HP 2600n over network


The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

Strange Printer Issue - HP Laserjet 2600n


The last time I checked, you cannot set up a local printer using a TCP/IP port. A local printer is physically connected to a computer via a parallel, serial (very old), or USB cable. If the printer is connected to a switch, hub, or router via an Ethernet cable, it is by definition a network printer and the driver install must reflect this. I don't understand why it is able to print out the test page after the install. If you open up Control Panel -> Printers and double-click on the HP Laserjet 2600n in there, it will bring up the local spooler for the printer. You may have a bunch of print jobs queued up in there that it cannot currently send to the printer. You may want to clear the queue first (cancel all print jobs). Let me know if you have problems clearing the queue & I can give you instructions on how to do that one too.

Print jobs stuck in queue


First re-install the printer driver on that computer. If you can see the jobs in the queue, cancel all jobs and try again. Hope this helps.

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
