I have a manul I'm wanting to print, but now I don't want to print it. How do I stop it? And also it is printing little boxes (Not the words) What do I do about that?


Runaway print jobs are always a pain! First, power off your printer to stop it from wasting paper. If the power button doesn't work, pull its plug. That will stop the printing for now but your print job will probably restart when the power is resumed.

Whether you are using a PC or Mac, documents that you send to the printer are managed by a printer management service which is responsible for printing documents in the correct order and handling any printer problems that occur. When the printer is turned off, any documents you print will be saved (queued) for printing when the printer starts again. To fix your runaway printing problem you simply need to delete the copy of your large document that is still queued for printing.

On Windows you will see a small icon on the toolbar at the bottom right of your screen that looks like a printer. When you click on the icon you should see a window appear which has the name of your printer in the title bar (e.g. HP Deskjet) and a list of any documents waiting to be printed. To delete a print job, simply right-click on the document name in the list and select "Cancel". When asked "are you sure you want to cancel the document" click on YES and the document will be deleted from your printer queue. Repeat this for all documents in the list until it is empty, then you can restart your printer.

The process on a Mac is similar and even easier since you will see a bouncing printer icon with an exclamation point on it on your toolbar. Click on that icon to see the print queue, click on the document you want to delete and press the DELETE key to remove it.

To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB WITH THE PROGRESS METER:
When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB FROM THE PRINTERS WINDOW:
If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS (START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS and FAXES in Windows XP).
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.
