How do I cancel a print job on a intermec easycoderprinter PM4i.I disconnected power but it only restarts printing when turned back on

If the job starts up again after you disconnect power, it's not in the printer, but is in your computer. You should be able to cancel the print job there.

The Power button turns the printer on and off. It takes approximately five seconds for the printer to turn on after you press the Power button. The green light above the Power button flashes when printing is in progress. Caution! Always use the Power button on the front of the printer to turn the printer on and off. Using a power strip, surge protector, or a wallmounted switch to turn the printer on and off may cause premature printer failure

The printer turns itself on autamaticcally and wont stop printing

You need to cancel all pending print jobs on the queue. If you see the printer's icon on your System Tray, lower right corner of your computer, right click it and choose Cancel Print Jobs. Or you can double click it so that it will show you the current printing job or those in queue. Select and delete them. If this does not cancel the pending print jobs, disconnect your printers power cord and shutdown the computer. After like 10 minutes, turn the printer and computer back again.

I turned the power to the printer off in the middle of a job and then cancelled it. There is a paper halfway through and the error light is flashing. I cannot print a new job. Janice Simpson the model...

Disconnect the "data" cable between the printer and your computer.
Turn the printer on.
If the light still flashes, you have a "paper jam".
If you cannot "clear" it yourself, take the printer to a qualified technician, for servicing.

On your computer:
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Printers
Double-click the icon for your printer.
Click on the "suspended" (or "active") print-job, to "select" it.
Right-mouse-click on the print-job, and choose "cancel".

Sent too many labels to printer - need to reset

As the previous expert has stated, with the printer paused, press the cancel key to cancel the job. One thing to note, is depending on how your software sends the print jobs, you may say print 1000 labels, but the software sends it one at a time, so basically you have 1000 print jobs in the printer. If you pause the printer, press and hold the cancel key. Hold it for about 2 mins. This should clear the buffer.

Unable to cancel print queue

You can cancel a print job from within Windows by going to Control Panel -> Printers and double-clicking on the appropriate printer. Right-click the print job you want to cancel and select Cancel from the context menu. Anything already sent to the printer will continue to print.

You can also cancel a print job from the printer by pressing Cancel on the control panel. This applies to whatever is currently printing.
(You may want to remove any paper from the paper tray first.)

Clicking the cancel print icon stops the job from continuing to spool, but whatever is still in the printer's memory will continue to print until exhaused or the job is cancelled from the printer's control panel.
