Print queue stops document and will not resume


Hi,

Clearing the Print Queue in Windows:

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.


Goodluck,

I have a canon pixma ip4200. When printing it draws the paper in but then stops. The heads print as if the paper were there but the printer doesn't draw the paper through. please help...!


Use Fit-to-Page Printing (Windows) The Fit-to-Page function automatically resizes the image to fit the size of the page being used. Letter size image data, for example, will automatically be printed on 4" x 6" size paper. Paper sizes larger than the printer can handle will be available on the Page Setup of the printer driver but will not print unless the Fit-to-Page function is enabled. Note: The Fit-to-Page Printing function is not available when Borderless Printing is selected.
  1. Access the printing preferences by opening the printer Properties / Preferences:

    For Windows Vista
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.
    For Windows XP Home Edition
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows XP Professional Edition
    • Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows 2000/Me/98
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

  2. Click the Page Setup tab.

  3. Specify the 'Fit-to-Page Printing' settings.

(1) Select Fit-to-Page Printing.

(2) Select the size of original document created in application program. Paper sizes larger than the printer can handle will be available.

(3) Select the actual size of print media.

Click 'OK'.

I hope it helps!!!

Print is not centered on paper


There are two possible culprits for this problem.

1. The wrong driver is being used for your printer.

2. The paper thinks it is printing to different sized paper than it actually is.

To solve the first case:
Verify that the correct driver is being used. Go to the Control Panel (Start, Settings, Control Panel) and open up the Printers and Faxes component by double-clicking on it.
Right-click on your printer and go to Properties.
A new window will pop-up. Go to the Advanced tab and verify next to where it says 'Driver' that it lists your model of printer.

To solve the second case:
Exactly as you did above, under the Advanced tab, click on the 'Printing Defaults' button.
Then click on the Paper/Quality tab on the new window.
Under the Paper/Quality tab click on the 'Advanced' button.
A new window will pop-up. Where it says Paper/output, expand it (click the plus) to list Paper size. Change Paper size to match the size of the paper you are printing (Letter is the default 8.5" x 11").

Printer keeps saying change paper size


Go to Control Panel - Printers and on MF3310 right click and choose Default settings. I had to change page size from Letter to A4 and output size from Match page size to A4 as well. Finally, after 4 hours of investigations it worked.
