If this is for Microsoft XP, click start button (bottom left corner of screen) select printers & faxes, you should see a printer there that has a black (not grey) tick next to it, which means it's your default printer.. (& probably the one you are interested in) Double click it, the pending print jobs shud be in there. You can hold them or cancel them or prompt them to print if needed..

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

How to cancel the previous print?


I'm glad to provide the instructions to cancel the print.
Double click the printer icon in the system tray (by the clock). That should open a printing status window. Highlight the job you want to cancel and click on cancel. it will show "deleting". Once the job is deleted, the printer may continue to print what is in its internal memory, but once that is gone, the printer will stop and eject the page.

If your computer has sent the file to the printer memory already you have to turn off the printer.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Printer shows ready, whenI send a print job to the printers it displays printing, but does not print. The unable to cancel or remove printing jobs.


Check if the printhead starts moving when powering on the printer. The problem might lie in the printhead electrical contact pints in which case clean it gently. Alternatively replace the print cartridge where at least black ink is present. If these are OK but it wont pull in the paper then the rollers might be jammed. If its a laser printer,check by changing the tober cartridge amd post the result as a comment.........sodeep

I have a Samsung ML 2510 printer. It was printing just fine and then the red light below the triangle with the exclamation in it came on. When I send jobs to the printer nothing happens. I have checked...


Toner in your catridge might be over. Turn off printer. Click Start, settings, printers and faxes. Make sure it is your default printer and double click on it. Cancel all the pending jobs. When everything is deleted close the box and turn the printer on and continue your job.

I want to print out an e-mail but when I do it comes up with printing failed when starting documents. Any solution?


The problem is you may have attempted to print too many times and it has confused the computer. Go to start / printers and right click on the printer that is set up and clear the number of print jobs listed in the spooler. there is a tab to clear all. Then shut off your printer and reboot the computer. Try again. Good luck
