Question about Lexmark Z1300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Print jobs go straight to status "Deleting"

My Z1300 is now installed on a Windows Vista PC. When I try to print something, the jobs don't print. When I check the queue, the jobs are in status "Deleting", but they never actually delete. The printer commands to Cancel, Resume etc. have no effect. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, but that didn't help. I have checked for newer drivers, but I have the latest. In trying to clear the queue by restarting it through the Administrator Services function I found that I can clear the queue, but the next document I try to print does the same thing.

I have an HP psc 1315v and we tried to cancel a print job last night and it still will not cancel

I've seen some HP printers become very testy about deleting print jobs... One thing you can try is using the printer and Windows at the same time.

Power off the printer
On your PC, go to Start => Settings => Control Panel
Then choose the Printers icon (wording may be different depending on your version of Windows)
Double-click the Printers icon
Double-click your Printer
When the dialog box opens, click on Printer (upper left corner)
Click Cancel All Documents
The status should change to Deleting...
Once the print job goes away, turn the printer back on.

If that doesn't work, let me know and we'll try something else. If this solves the problem, please rate the solution.

Cannot print on shared printer

I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

It sounds like software and not the printer itself.
Go to add and remove programs in Control panel and remove the printer software.
Then re install it and it should work fine
Let me know how you get on
