It's because there has been a delay in your printing queue.
At bottom next to clock, there should be a symbol that looks like a printer, double click it and right click on the documents then you should be able to cancel them from there.

Hope this helps!

Try to completely reboot your printer or fiddle around with the printing status on your actual computer. If that doesn't work try erasing the printers memory of ever printing anything then re-sync it with your computer.

Why does my printer print things from 2 days ago instead of things I need today


Click on the printer ICON lower right.

Some items if they haven't printed some prints may be in the print spooler.

Cancel out old print.

Also try to re-install driver, Possible corruption?

Having problems deleting pending documents


Assuming you have a modern windows pc, You will need to manually stop the print service. Do this by running the command "net stop spooler" from the "run" line. Then go to "C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS" and delete all the files from there. After these files are gone, start the spooler service again by running "net start spooler". You should be all set after that.

Canon mf4150 - Cannot cancel a print job


Hello, I know you wrote this seven months ago, but if you are still having issue, you have to press the "system Monitor" button on the printer. then press ok for print jobs, then the right and left arrors to cancel
It is aggrivating how canon put no shortcut button on the printer to cancel this.

It is under chapter 3 in teh advanced guide you can get at the link below on canon's site.

Cannot print with Lexmark x4875, Windows Vista OS.


You need to cancel all print jobs for a printer, you must have permission to manage documents on the printer.

1. Open printers by clicking the "Start" button , clicking "Control Panel," clicking "Hardware and Sound," and then clicking "Printers."

2. To open the print queue, double-click the printer you are using.

3. Click the "Printer" menu, and then click "Cancel All Documents." Depending on the printer, the item currently printing might finish, but the remaining items will be cancelled.

Next, you may have to change the communication format called the "Spool format."
Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:
1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."
3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.
4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark 4800 series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
If this does not help the situation, please describe any differences it does make.

I have an hp Laserjet 1012 printer and find that I do not possess any instructions for trouble shooting. My problem is that the printer persists in reprinting the same job given it several days ago and I...


Here is a link to the LJ1012. There are links for manuals, drivers, support forums, etc.

LaserJet 1012 Support

As to your question, here are the brief descriptions of the 2 lights and 2 buttons...from top to bottom:

1 Attention light: Indicates printer media input tray is empty, print cartridge door is open, print
cartridge is missing, or other errors.
2 Ready light: Indicates that the printer is ready to print.
3 Go button and light: To print a demo page or to continue printing while in manual feed mode,
press and release the Go button. To print a configuration page, press and hold the Go button
for 5 seconds.
4 Cancel Job button: When the printer is processing data, press the Cancel Job button to
cancel the print job.

Also, see if powering down the printer and unplugging it from the wall outlet for several minutes clears the repeating of the print job.

HP Deskjet 940c keeps saying it's out of paper, won't print


I have the same problem. In the error message box is a Cancel button.
