Won't print I've had this printer for a few months, now when I try to print it starts the job and when it gets to about 50% it stops and won't finish the print job. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software and gone on the Lexmark website to up date but still no help. Any ideas? thanks

    The paper is feeding thru the printer and it feeds at an angle. It eventually stops without printing anything.

2. Scroll down and look for print spooler and double click on it.

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.

The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.

After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.

I have a pending print job in my thermal printer and it won't print. I can't delete it from the que


Go to the Start run window and type Net Stop Spooler and press return and then do teh same and type Net Start Spooler after doing this try and redelete the job, if this fails do another Net Stop Spooler then navigate to C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS and delete all the files in this folder then do a net start spooler all jobs should now be gone, Be aware that option 2 will delete all spooler jobs, so if this is a shared printer or server that these jobs will be lost

Can't cancel a HP PSC 750 Printer print job.


Hi,
Right click on MyComputer and click Manage. Then go to Services and Applications and then Services. Find the Print Spooler services in the list and right click to stop it. When it is stopped try to cancel the document again. Then start the print spooler service again.

Regards,

Stops after printing 1 job


A reboot likely fixed this problem already, or at least freed up the corrupted print job enough to be able to delete it out of queue.

However, if this is a reocurring problem, a corrupted printer driver could be the cause. Try reinstalling the drivers.
