Problems deleting printed files from the spool

Bear with me if I don't use terminology just right. My Lexmark x6100 works pretty well on my new HP VISTA computer. I got the VISTA drivers on-line. This is the problem: Whenever I print a document it does not delete it from the spool. When I look at the printing status it says it is deleting it but it never finishes the job and will not print the next document until I turn the printer off and on again. That action clears the spool and allows the next document to print. What can be done to fix this?

Navigate
Start-> Control Panel -> Printer
Right click on printer icon and select properties
Find out Advance settings. See Spooling, Select Print Directly and try.

Although your driver looks like incompatible but above will fix your problem.

    would not allow me to save or apply the Print Directly selection. Also when turn off printer, the document does not delete when turn back on. I can delete documents in the queue, but the one remaining document never finishing deleting.

My printer doesn't work as it should be beacause i tried to print a page, i pressed ok but it didn't come out


Hi Bianca!
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!

I can not print on my canon iP90v. I try to download a new driver for it, but i keep getting an error that says I have problems with printer spooler.Do you have any tips?


You could either kick it or try this (less expensive) trick:

  1. Click "start" and go to "Run"

  2. Type "services.msc" at the prompt which will open the Services
    window (ooh, pretty...)

  3. Scroll down the alphabetical list in the right window pane until you come
    to the entry with the name "Print Spooler"

  4. Right-click this entry, then select "stop". This will stop the computer
    running the process that holds your print queues.

  5. Leaving that window open for now, click again on "Start", and then click
    "My Computer" to open a Windows Explorer window.

  6. We've stopped the queue service, now we just have to clear the jam that is
    already there. To do this we navigate to the print spool folder which is hiding
    within the Windows folders. Usually Windows is installed on C: drive, but you
    should be easily able to tell when the Explorer window opens which drive it is
    on.

    The usual path to the spool folder is
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS, but yours may be slightly
    different. Your windows drive may have another name for instance, but this would
    be uncommon. So click on your Windows drive (usually C), then double-click on
    the Windows folder, and then find the System32 folder and double-click on
    that. Windows may warn you that you are about to view system files, but click
    "View files anyway" message and search out the "spool folder". Within the
    Spool folder is your Printers folder, and you should open
    that.

  7. 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").

  8. 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

Document won't delete from printer queue after printed


Have you tried to stop the spooler service in services?

Option 1)
Click on start orb
Type in search window:
services.msc
click ok
Scroll down to Print spooler service and click on it in the right side window.
On the left side click stop the service and wait forthe process to stop .Do not close the window yet. You will have to restart it here later.
next delete the print job in the printer queue then restart the spooler service
Resubmit your new print job.

Option 2)
If that doesn't clear it, the next step would be to stop the spooler
service as stated above
Go into windows explorer
(Print job data is collected and stored in a spool file in the spooler folder.)

It is located in:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS

Your print job will show 2 files there Example below:
00002.SHD
00002.SPL

Delete the files located in there. There may be several of them depending apon how many print jobs you submitted. You will have to resubmit your print jobs all over again.
Next go back to services window and restart the spooler service

That will definitely fix it.

How do I get the printer to print


Click on the printer icon at the bottom right of the screen. It should bring you to the print queue.

Make sure that the print queue has been released. Sometimes the queue will be in a "Hold" status.

You can also release each print job by clicking on the job and directing the queue to send the job to the printer.

Caught in spool, can not cancel or print


Been working on my computer for two hours on this problem!
i could not cancel what was in the spool

If you are on Vista Home Premium, go through the following steps to clear "deleted" print jobs from the print queue.

1) Go to Control Panel
2) Select System and Maintenance
3) Select Administrative Tools
4) Double-click on Services
5) In the list of services, scroll down until you find one called "Print Spooler"
6) Right-click on "Print Spooler" and select "Restart"
7) The "deleted" jobs will disappear and any queued jobs in your print queue will print

Hope this helps. I figured it out on my own without any assistance from the paid professionals

Deleting - Printed


I've also had this problem with an HP LaserJet 4650dtn printer. I've solved this by: - Stop the "Print Spooler" service. - Delete all the existing print spool files. (Stored in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS" by default). - Start the "Print Spooler" service. - Right-click the printer's icon in the Printers and Faxes folder and choose Properties. - Click the Advanced tab. - Click the Print Processor... button. - Make a note of the existing "Print processor" selection on the left (in case you need to revert it.). Then change it to "WinPrint". Click OK. - Click OK on the printer's properties window. - Try sending a print job to see whether it persists in the print queue.
