Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a document in the print queue that I cannot delete. The document will not print and it will not let me print anything else. It says "command error" and I do not know what to do. Basically my printer is locked up until I can remove this one document. I removed several others, but this one will not delete. HELP!

What to do if after canceling the printing in queue document its status is still showing deleting ?


Give it a few minutes. Sometimes it takes awhile to delete the document.

If that fails, turn off the printer, wait a minute, then turn it back on. The document should be deleted.

I cancelled a document while it was printing and it is still in my queue days later as deleting and it wont let me print anything else or restart that print job.


The best way to delete the print job is to turn the printer off, then disconnect the cable from the printer to the computer. Turn the printer on with the cables off, and go to your computer and delete the document, Then once it's deleted, turn the printer off again, and then hook the cable back up. Then turn the printer back on. That should do it.

Good Luck

Brother mfc8460n stopped printing anything....no warning and no appearance of anything being wrong. I don't know where to look; have 2 documents in queue.


The first of those documents is probably corrupted and causing the printer to stop working. Delete all jobs from the queue, turn the printer off, then back on again and try a different document. If it works, then the document is corrupted and you need to try saving it in a different format before printing it again.

I have a pdf document to print and it doesn't print it, and in the window box for the printer it says that 1 document is in queue (which I don't understand what queue means) and if I try to cancel the...


How large (how many pages) is the PDF document?
Try printing only the first page.
Then try only 5 pages at a time.

The queue is the disk area where the document (in print-out form) is held until the printer can service it (print it). This is known as "background printing".

Can't delete document from printer queue. Can't print anything.


I've had this problem several times, and the only solution is to restart your system. Once rebooted, the printer will continue printing your other documents
