Why does my 7520 printer print old documents.


Your computer has "queued" various pages to be printed.
When it detects that it cannot completely complete the output, it restarts the sending of the information to the printer.

From the Windows "Control Panel", select "Printers".
Select your printer. Click to "show what is printing".
From there, you can select an item, and choose to "cancel" it.

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.

The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.

After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.

I want to cancel to print and my printer doesn't have a cancel icon to do this. do I just turn off my printer? My printer is PH Photosmart. Please advise - I'm new to all this. Thank You.


When u print it goes to a "cue" on the pc and stays there untill done. Turning off your printer will not work as the "job in the cue" is still there. When u turn on your printer the job starts up untill finished.

Ok to stop a print job turn off printer.

........Hope you are running windows 7
1.) Open devices and printers
2.) double click your printer
3.) select see whats printing dialog
4.) select the items in the list then right mouse click
5.) select CANCEL
6.) The job is now deleted from the que so when you turn your printer on it will not start until you print your next item.

Not sure if this helps, but you should first try to tell the system to delete or cancel all print packages. What is typically happening is that there is a problem with the first item in the queue, and all the others behind it or listed below it won't print eighter - by deleting the troublesome print, it may take time but it should clear - HP would often do that, but totally shutting down cold was the only way to clear the queue. When both the PC and printer did a cold boot, then the queue would be clear. If not then maybe check with the manu of your printer for their advice

I'm not an expert, but this usually fixes my printer when this happens. Go to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and then Services. You will see a long list of items. Scroll down to Print Spooler. On the left hand side you will see buttons to Stop and Restart Services. Click on Stop and wait until it stops. Then click on Restart. Try to delete the item from the printer que again. If it doesn't work, do the same steps as above, but between the Stop & the Restart, try to delete it then. This works for me. Good luck!
