Not able to print, keep saying 1 document on pending. I have deleted everything and still no able to print. scanner, copier and fax is working normally.

Your document is stuck in the printer queue. Usually you can fix this by shutting down the printer completely and disconnecting the power connection then starting over. Depending upon your computer and the software you are using it may be possible to have the computer empty the queue

As soon as you turn on my printer it already wants to print what i have printed previously how do i stop that from happening

You need to clear the print queue from the (any) workstation that is printing to it.

  • go to Control Panel/Printers
  • Open the printer in question
  • highlight any documents awaiting print
  • press 'delete'

The documents may not all completely delete until the printer is turned back on.

If this doesn't fix it then please reply before rating this answer as I can detail a manual method of clearing the queue, but I recommend using the above process first.

Please take the time to rate this answer.

Many Thanks Don.

Document stuck in queue and will not delete or print.

Its a common problem. All you have to do is to restart the Print Spooler service and delete the print queue. To restart the service follow the steps: Open Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services. Now find service named "Print Spooler" and right click over it and select "Restart" to restart the service.
Now open the "Printers and Faxes" folder and try to delete the print queue. Now you will be able to delete the print queue. If applicable you can follow the steps once again if any print queue refuse to get deleted.
Once the print queue is empty, you can print from your printer smoothly.

We have a spooling problem. The sharp mx-2300n just says "ripping" and 20% complete but won't move from there and print anything. Can cancel print job from Mac but won't stop anything at the printer end....

Go into the Job review mode and highlight the pending print job (note: it may be stuck in processing). You should then get the option to delete the job.

Make sure that the pending print job is also cleared from the network print queue. They can sit in the queue and be persistent on processing, even after you've cleared the copier. Clear the queue prior to deleting the job on the copier.

If this doesn't, disconnect the copier from your network and try the above steps again, then reboot the copier and reconnect it to your network.

If you're trying to print out Adobe-based web pages from the internet, this may be what's causing your copier to jam up. There's known coding anomalies with Adobe-embedded documents on web pages. Trying to directly print from the web page can stall or lock up the print process.

Printer document in queue will not delete

1. First, try turning printer off and on.

2. Next, on the computer side, this is how you manually clear the printer queue.

1. Go to Start, Control Panel and Administrative Tools. Double click on Services icon.
2. Scroll down to the Print Spooler service and right click on itand select Stop. In order to do this, you need to be logged in asAdministrator. At this point, no one will be able to print anything onany of the printers that are being hosted on this server.
3. Next you need to go to the following directory: C:WINDOWSSystem32spoolPRINTERS.Delete all the files in this folder. This will clear all print queues(it’s a good idea to first make sure there are no other print jobsbeing processed on any of the other printers on the server becausedoing this step will delete those jobs also)
4. Now you can go back to the Services console and right-click and choose Start for the Print Spooler service!
You can also go to a command prompt and type net stop spooler or net start spooler to start and stop the service.

I hope this helps. If you have more questions, let me know.
