Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
For Windows try a combination approach. Unplug the data cable from both the computer and the printer (USB). Then stop the print spooler and restart it. You could do this from the Control Panel (System Services). I find it easier to do this from the Command Prompt (For Vista and Win7 you need to run as administrator) Start > All Programs > Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator (for older versions just left click on the Command Prompt).
At the prompt in the window, type "net stop spooler" without the quotes followed by hitting enter.
At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" again without the quotes and then hit enter.
(Press y if you are prompted with a warning about fax service after the first command). Then restart the computer after you see another prompt.
Once your computer has rebooted, check if the spooler is empty before reconnecting the data cable. Then try to print another job.
I hope this helps.
(you can actually stop the service without restarting it and then reboot. However, you need to take a long coffee break before the spooler finishes clearing the stuck document.)
