    I have the same problem.
    Communication computer-printer is correctly set on SCSI controller. If I send calibration command with computer to printer, all is OK -- heads are moving and printing calibration pattern (as well as I do it with control panel of printer).
    But when I send command printing test page or another document, printer receive data, heads are moving, but no ink is visible -- I see only a white sheet of paper.
    Has onyone a idea, how solve this problem?

    I have the Canon BJ W9000. I am trying to install it as a standalone unit, meaning print from computer to printer without being on a network (I don't have it on a network although I could set one up if I have to). I obtained the drivers from canon.com. I have the w20 fiery rip. I can print a test page from the w20 to the printer and it prints well. However, when I send the print from my computer to the fiery so it could print at the printer, it fails. Canon told me that the computer connects to the fiery via parallel or scsi so I tried parallel because it's cheaper - although it's slower. I wanted to make sure I could get it to work before getting a scsi cord which is more expensive. How do I set this printer up / program it to get it printing more than just the test page from the w20. Is there any software I have to obtain or do I have to get the scsi cable because that's the only way it'll work? Thank you & have a good day.

I'm assuming this is on a network printer.
1- try resetting the machine ( did not specify the model or make)
2- does it have the correct IP and gateway
3- try restting the PC and port

How do I cancel documents in a queue


Cheers james heron

To cancel a queued document, there are several ways, it is best to go to printing devices and open what is printing the printer you want to cancel, click Cancel and disappear the document.
cancel-documents-in-queue-3yd5oaqhykbr2qilonoqer23-5-0.jpg
In many cases this does not help then you click cancel, the document continues to appear, that's when it works best to turn off the computer and turn it on again.
Another thing you can do to disappear a file from the print queue, disconnect the printer's USB cable and connect it again, for it can do so from your computer or from the same printer.

Another way that can work is, turn the printer off and turn it on again, you should always look the team to lose the memory of what is printed, in order to begin again.

Print queue stops document and will not resume


Hi,

Clearing the Print Queue in Windows:

Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.


Goodluck,

FS1920 says "processing"


Hi
It would appear that there is a problem during translation from the document to the printer. The following procedure may help:-
Try turning off the printer, on the computer clear the pending jobs for the printer until none are left. Turn off the computer and wait for 30 seconds. Turn on the computer and wait until it is fully booted. Again check the printer queue is empty. If it is not clear it by deleting the pending documents again and then reboot again. Repeat if and as necessary until the printer queue is and remains empty. Restart the printer and again wait until it is fully booted. Hopefully this will have cleared the error and you can start printing again. Start with something small and simple so that you are not putting a significant processing load on either machine.
I give below a link from which the manuals for this machine may be downloaded. If the above procedure doesn't work there may be something in the manuals that will.

Good Luck

Printer does not print computer documents


The queue is so choked with documents the printer gets confused and loses its sense of priority. Shut down the printer and disconnect power to clear its memory. Wait a few minutes and reconnect power. Start sending one document at a time to the printer and you should get results.

Memory low


When getting the error message Low Memory, this means one of two things. Either the print job that you are sending to the printer is to big, or the fuser in the printer is to hot, and needs to cool down. I would not recommend printing in raster mode, as this can cause further issues within the software. A couple of steps that you could try are:

1. If there are previous print jobs in the queue wait until they are completed
2. Power down the printer for a minimum of 30 seconds
3. If you are printing a large amount of pages, break it down into smaller jobs
4. If printing documents, change the setting to either fast draft, or draft mode

I want to print new page of printing printer keeps churning out prvious printing instrctions i am 78yrs old still learning


Hi,

What you need to do is clear out the printing "QUEUE".

.
Clearing the Print Queue in Windows
The printer is one of the slowest devices in a computer system. If you had to wait for it to print your document before you could resume writing, you would quickly go back to using a typewriter. To eliminate the delay, Windows reserves a portion of memory for something called a “print queue” (or spooler). The queue works on a first-in first-out basis. You can continue to use the computer and send jobs to the spooler as it feeds a steady stream of data to the printer.
Print queues are nice, except when something happens in the printer to cause it to stop functioning. Sometimes it is just a paper jam and sometimes it is a bit more serious. If you need to cancel the jobs in the print queue, you can simply double-click the printer icon (in the system tray down by the clock) and open the print queue. Depending upon the length of your document and how many documents are waiting to print, the printer icon may appear briefly or for a sustained period. (Note: This would be a good time to remove the paper from the printer before continuing.) If the icon is not there, you can manually open the queue.
Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

This should solve your problem, Let me know how it works for you..

Printer won't print


Make sure your print queue is empty. Try restarting the print spooler by doing this: Right click on My Computer and select Manage. Expand Services and Applications, then click on Services. On the right side, find Print Spooler, right click on it and select Restart. That will clear any pending document stuck in the queue. Also make sure you have the latest driver for the printer, and that you are printing using the right port (look on the printer properties on the Printers folder).
