Dell v305w spools but won't actually print


Check whether multiple false starts are in the print queue. Sometimes the queue gets so loaded it can't figure out what to do. You may be able to check this at the printer but shutting down the printer and starting it again may accomplish purging. After the queue has been emptied you should be able to send the job to the printer.

How do you restart printer


Do you mean - how do I restart printing a document that is in the print queue? Or do you want to know how to restart the printer as in turn it off and back on again?
If you have a document that has not printed and you want to restart printing it, click on the arrow on the bottom right side of your screen near your clock and find the picture of the printer (icon). Right click with your mouse on top of the picture of the printer and open the print queue. Find the document you want to print and click on it and choose restart. You can also delete the documents in the queue and just try printing them all over again to solve the issue.

My printer does not print. I do not get any message either. What could be wrong? The toner lamp is illuminated, but the level should not be "too" low. Brother HL-2030.


Most of the time, this is caused by memory failure or when print command isn't responding. Suppose if you give a print command few hours back and it's wasn't printed successful, then the document to be printed should be in the print queue list. So, firstly check the print queue documents, and delete all the queues. in case you can't delete them, follow these steps, Start - Printers and Faxes - Double click your Printer Icon - Click on the Printer Tab - Select Cancel All Documents - Ok and close the dialog box and the printers and faxes window (note that your printer should be kept power On and connected to the Pc) Wait for few minutes and restart your system while you Power Off the printer. When the system boots up, also power on the printer and check if there's still the Print Queue. Now you can try printing documents if there's none, or you'd need to follow the same steps again. There are some more ways, but this solves most of the problem. So give it a try and let me know the result. Remember that your printer is connected properly to the Pc. Good luck.

I finally cleared a paper jam, and now my printer is trying to reprint all the documents I sent to print while there was a jam. I do not want these to print since it will waste a ton of paper and ink. How...


There should be a little print queue icon down by the clock.  Double-click on this to open the print queue program.  From there you can remove jobs from the queue.  NOTE:  It can take a minute or two for jobs to remove themselves.  It's not instant.

My 5 in 1 printer is saying no cartridge when I just replaced it and when I do get it to print it's not printing that good at all kind of gray like it's out of ink, it has a new cartridge


  • Click open START then CONTROL PANEL then PRINTERS AND FAXES
  • If asked, click the link that says view or modify existing printers
  • You should get to a window that shows a list of printers that are installed on your computer
  • Look for the printer icon with a tiny little checkmark in a black circle to the upper right (see image below). This is your default printer, that is, it's the one that prints if you don't manually select a specific printer. defprint.jpg
    Note how the checkmark indicates that the Brother HL-2040 Series is my default printer
  • In most cases, this is the printer you are having trouble with, but the following procedure can be applied to any printer on your system.
  • Double click open your default printer to view the print queue printqueue.jpg
    Note that there are two documents waiting to print in my print queue
  • If the print queue is empty, skip the next step
  • Click and pull down the PRINTER menu from the top of the print queue and select CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS. This will delete anything that's stuck in the queue cancelall.jpg
    After clicking CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS, it may take a minute or two for the queue to completely clear
  • Click and pull down the PRINTER menu from the top of the print queue. If there is a line item that says USE PRINTER OFFLINE and there is a checkmark to the left of it, click it once, otherwise, click CLOSE.
  • Now go to the printer and power it off, wait a few seconds and power it back on.
If these steps haven't solved your printing problem, then you probably need help

I want to print new page of printing printer keeps churning out prvious printing instrctions i am 78yrs old still learning


Hi,

What you need to do is clear out the printing "QUEUE".

.
Clearing the Print Queue in Windows
The printer is one of the slowest devices in a computer system. If you had to wait for it to print your document before you could resume writing, you would quickly go back to using a typewriter. To eliminate the delay, Windows reserves a portion of memory for something called a “print queue” (or spooler). The queue works on a first-in first-out basis. You can continue to use the computer and send jobs to the spooler as it feeds a steady stream of data to the printer.
Print queues are nice, except when something happens in the printer to cause it to stop functioning. Sometimes it is just a paper jam and sometimes it is a bit more serious. If you need to cancel the jobs in the print queue, you can simply double-click the printer icon (in the system tray down by the clock) and open the print queue. Depending upon the length of your document and how many documents are waiting to print, the printer icon may appear briefly or for a sustained period. (Note: This would be a good time to remove the paper from the printer before continuing.) If the icon is not there, you can manually open the queue.
Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

This should solve your problem, Let me know how it works for you..

My print spooler queu says that my document is printing but the document never prints


Go to Settings or Control Panel and select Printers - double click the icon. Here you will find the Print Queue. Delete all jobs in the Print Queue (the first one is probably the problem child and is stopping any others from progressing).

This will free up the Print Queue which should now be ready to accept new Print jobs.

Note: The Spooler is an area where Print Jobs are stored ready for Printing and as long as the previous print has finished then the next job in the Spooler will progress to be printed onto paper.

Good luck.
