Question about HP PSC 1410 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Can not delete last file in print queue.

In Win Xp I have 3 copies of a file printing. If I stop the printer before the last file, I cannot delete the last file from the Printer Queue. [I can delete the next to last file]
Only solution I have found is put scrap paper in the printer, turn off and on and let it print the last file.

That is most likely due to a frozen print batch, and sometimes the only way to clear it, is to let it run, just like you are doing. The issue is that it's stuck between the memory in the computer and the memory, if you have it, in the printer.

got backup?

Printer keeps printing project last inserted and totally ignores my current instructions. In fact, once laptop is connected to printer it starts printing the previous item i.e. what it failed to print...


If you're using Windows, please follow the steps below to clear the print queue from stuck print jobs:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.



Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

It could be that the same print job is on queue to the printer. Try to delete all print jobs in the queue before sending out a new one. Follow the steps below:
1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service) 2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files. 3.

Keeps printing copies of what i copied last week and won't copy what i want this week


((make sure you have the printer turned off)) otherwise you it might print another page if you have multiple prints in the queue you will have to open a file that you are about to print click ok a page will open with a display print queue tab you can see all prints right click on the ones you don't need select cancel
it will be in the print queue where you can stop it printing right click to delete what you are printing you might have to uninstall the printer then reinstall to adjust your print settings

or just go into your printers settings to alter/change the settings

hope this helps

HP B8850 photo printer originally installed on an XP machine. Now running on a Win 7 unit (SP1) x64. Most printing done from Photoshop CS2. Up until a few months ago, everything ran fine on the x64 Win 7...


Try this.
Right click on the desktop and create a new Text Document, rename it spooler.bat
Be sure your computer is set to display file extensions otherwise you will end up with a file called spooler.bat.txt but the .txt will not be displayed. Right click on the file and select edit. type the following:
net stop spooler
net start spooler

Save the file.
Between print jobs, run this by right clicking on the file and Run as Administrator. Maybe restarting the spooler will work and you will not have to reboot.

Hello. my lexmark 2500 all-in-one won't print. when I select print, I get the page verifung the printer and how may copies i want but when I hit ok, nothing happens.


Hello! What you should do is to clear the print spooler - the printer queue. If you're using windows, right click on my computer and then press in "Manage", in the opened window go to "Services and Applications" and then "Services". go down the alphabetical list in the right window pane until you come to the service with the name "Print Spooler". Right-click this entry, then select "stop". This will stop the service that holds your print queues. Leave this window open, press on start and then type "spool" in the search bar (or in the "Run" command line if it's windows xp) and press enter. In the opened window, go to a folder named "PRINTERS", and Delete every file within this folder to empty the jammed print queue (pressing the "ctrl" and "a" keys will select all files and then you can just
hit "delete"). Close the explorer window now that we have emptied the cleared spool files, and return to your Services window. we must re-start the Print spool service, and do so by right-clicking the Print Spool entry and selecting "Start" from the list. Close the services window and try printing again. It should work now. Good luck!

My printer won't print...there's a document in queue but it won't print and it won't delete.i've unplugged the printer and re-plugged it in I've restarted my computer...nothing is happening.


Try these steps to remove the print jobs stuck in the queue. Follow the instructions carefully:
First, you have to stop the Print Spooler. To do this: 1. Click on the Windows logo start button. 2. Go to Control Panel 3. Open Administrative Tools 4. Open Services 5. It will pop-up a Services window. Scroll through the list and look for Print Spooler. 6. Double-click on Print Spooler, and click on the Stop button. Click on Ok button. Set the window aside.
Second, you need to clear the print jobs in the Spool folder. To do this: 1. Click on the Windows logo start button. 2. Type Spool in the Search bar. 3. Open Printers folder 4. Delete all the files in the Printers folder. Close the window.
Third, you have to re-enable the Print Spooler. To do this: 1. Go back to Services window. 2. Double-click on Print Spooler, and click on the Start button. Click on Ok button. Close the Services window. Click on the Windows logo start button. Go to Control Panel and open Printers folder. Refresh the page. That should clear the print queue now.
If it still won't print, make sure to clear the print jobs in the queue again and try to reinstall the software. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Canon 4150 wont print , goes into queue


Have you gone into the queue and deleted the print jobs and started again? Do you have any error lights? If so there could be a hardware problem with the printer.
Try taking out the toner and putting it back in. Sometimes that will force the printer to reset intself.
If that doesn't help then you may have to delete the printer from the system and re-install it.

My last print job gets stuck deleting in the queue!


Go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS on your PC and you will see two files listed fior each of the outstanding print jobs. These will have the file extensions .SHD and .SPL

You need to delete both of these files then power off and power on your printer to be able to continue printing.
