Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

My printer wouldn't stop printing even when I clicked on cancel or turned off the computer and rebooted. I went to the printers and fax icon and found two printer sources--Adobe PDF and HP880C. The HP (which is what I've been using. It indicated there was 1 program ready. Thinking I should delete that, it deleted the whole HP Printer. Now I don't know how to reinstall HP88C. Please advise.

Usually when a printer loops the pages likes that it is a software problem. I've had experiences when the print spooler is defected and keeps the page lopping in that manner. It was probably a good thing you deleted that printer. By reinstalling it, you shoud be able to fix that problem.

Here's how to reinstall it: Windows XP and Windows Vista will automatically recognize your model. Make sure that your printer is connected via the USB cable and power it on.

When connecting it, a window should pop up telling you that windows has detected new hardware. Follow the prompts and it should install correctly.

If that doesn't work, you'll have to do it manually. Go to the Control Panel from the start menu.

Select, "Printer" from the hardware menu. There should be a button near the top that says, "Add a Printer."

Choose, "Add a Local printer" and follow the prompts.

If you can't get it, let me know what operating system you are running and I will give you some pictures showing you step by step.

The reboot of the pc along with a unplug of the printer should clear the printing. Do you have several printers listed to print to and did you print to the wrong one perhaps.
You say the unit would print from the scanner which is sort of odd as well. My scanner prints but only cause it is hooked to the PC.
there will be a large additional charge :-)

Need to cancel a printing project

If you are using windows go to the start menu. Go to settings, printers and faxes. Open the printer window. Highlight the job and from the menu click on document and then clear. Reboot your printer and you should be good. If you cant clear the job disconnect the printer and try again. Rebooting will help the computer is all else fails.

Cancelling/stopping a printing job

Open the Control Panel from either the Start menu or by opening 'My Computer.' Find your Printers and Faxes folder and open that.  Double-click on the icon of the X2500; if more than one, choose the one with a check mark and double click on that icon. This will open a 'job list' showing those which were not completed for some reason, click on it (them) and delete it from the list.
