My printer prints the same document over and over even though the queue has been cleared. It is not a test page, but a different document that we had tried to print when it wasn't printing initially.

In the right bottom of the computer screen you will see the printer icon. Click it open and delete the print queue. Now when you order a new doc there is nothing but the new doc to print. If this does not work then re-install the printer drivers.

Just set up new printer with the same name and set it as default printer. When it prints the test page, then it solves your problem. Delete the old printer icon.

Cannot get printer to either delete item in queueor print it it says is deleting but does nothing whe ni switch off system completely and then switch on again does test page .. then nothing

Deleting an item in the print queue often doesn't seem to work until the system is restarted. I've had this problem with both XP and Win7.
The test page sounds like you have requested it. Try just cancelling a document, then when it hangs in the print queue, restart the computer.
I've researched several "fixes" but am convinced it is a Microsoft problem that they need to fix.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer

A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

Trendnet TE100-P1U won't print

open the print server utility and the doc can be cancelled or deleted from there. (this is the server utility inthe toolbar at the bottom of a windows screen. failing this go to the printer shortcut and from control panel>printers> select printer and faxes>select the printer (open) >select "printer" from menu bar, pause printing,then cancel all documents. Afterthis you can delete printers that are excessivly created, or delete all of them and start again with only the one or two printers you need. even if one is for network use and the ther is direct connect. You canuse direct connect to verify proper printer operation until te100 is working properly
