    hi, i have the same problem. Tried to reinstall after removing it completely. It just would not print, but send it to que. The printer stays offline all the time, does not receive the data. On the port setting bidirectional option is not functional, could this be the problem. I have tried using both USB and printer cable. how do i fix it?

Re install the printer.
Remove it out of your hardware list and than re install. Brother drivers sometimes get corrupted

I can't print the items in my printer queue. How do I get them to print?


It sounds like you have a print job stuck in the print que. When this happens the print jobs after the stuck one will not print either. You will need to clear the print que and reprint the jobs. Here is a link to an article showing how to purge the print que and get your printer back printing again.

Print que on hp 4300 says "printing" but nothing happens and I cannot clear que


Hello,

This is a common problem with Windows machines. If a print job gets corrupted in the print que it will stop and block all other jobs from printing. It will also block the job from being deleted normally. You have to stop the print que service and then delete the print jobs from the que. Here is a link to a full article that shows how to stop the que, delete the print jobs and restart the que to restore printing.

I have Dell 1600n and run Windows Vista 32-bit. Whenever I print, I have to manually clear the print que. How do I have the print que automatically cleared after every print?


Go to the printer properties and untick print que and select print directly t o printer option.Alternatively download the rpcs drivers instead.

Items in print que


go to start/control panel/printers&faxes
you will see what is in the que
the print jobs will stay in the que until you shut off the printer
if you have shut off the printer, the que will be emptied and not retrievable
