Job stuck in cue, won't delete. printer won't print

I deleted all the jobs in cue, all deleted except one, it says it's been "deleting" the file in question (for the last 12 hours).

I've reset the computer, the printer, and pulled the power to the printer, all to no avail.

I have an HP 2610. (I'm running on PC)

Thanks, Jeff

    thanks...HP has a website that you can download a diagnostic program which will identify and then fix the problem. It worked perfectly so I am up and running again.

    Thanks

Have you tried restarting the print spooler?
What exactly is the version of you PC? WINXP, 2000, Vista?

If you are running on a Windows 2000 or Windows XP

1. You just need to click on START > CONTROL PANEL > Administrative Tools then Services

2. Inside Services window scroll down and look for print spooler

3. Click on stop the service and then after at least 5 seconds start the service

4. Restart your computer and check again if the print job is still there.

Awesome worked perfectly for me too... Pretty simple to do...

If you're in vista its easier to find under classic view though instead of control panel home.

Only prints first job - can't delete from que


Please try this approach instead:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.


I hope this information has been helpful.

Trying to cancel a print job after it's already scrolled to printer?


Sometimes this is a right royal pain int he **** to actually do. You need to cancel from the pc that send the print job, then you might have to turn the printer off and restart it a few times. Usually just once if you leave it off for a half minute does the trick. The idea is to clear the memory or buffer.

If it will not clear on the pc then it gets annoying as you won't be able to print until it is out of the way. Cancle the job then delete it from the cue. Then try a reboot or two. If nothing else you can remove the printer from the printer menu, then reboot and add it back in. That force the OS to clear out the spooler and so on. You used to have to hunt down the print job file and manually delete it.

Unable to delete/cancel print job while it runs-lbp 2900


Hi.

To temporarily delete the print jobs in the cue do the following:

Disconnect printer USB.
Restart printer.
Restart computer.
Access printer cue with printer not connected (get there from control panel)
Clear printer cue.
Connect the printer back.

If the printer cue gets stuck too often, and always with different documents, try reinstalling the printer software.

Regards.

Ginko.

Printer 966. Deleting Print Job stuck in Que


Sounds like a problem with the spooler.
Try to bypass the spooler when printing by right clicking on your printer and select "properties"

Select the "advanced" tab and select "print directly to the printer".
Hoepfully this should take care of it.

My last print job gets stuck deleting in the queue!


Go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS on your PC and you will see two files listed fior each of the outstanding print jobs. These will have the file extensions .SHD and .SPL

You need to delete both of these files then power off and power on your printer to be able to continue printing.

Deleting - Printed


I've also had this problem with an HP LaserJet 4650dtn printer. I've solved this by: - Stop the "Print Spooler" service. - Delete all the existing print spool files. (Stored in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS" by default). - Start the "Print Spooler" service. - Right-click the printer's icon in the Printers and Faxes folder and choose Properties. - Click the Advanced tab. - Click the Print Processor... button. - Make a note of the existing "Print processor" selection on the left (in case you need to revert it.). Then change it to "WinPrint". Click OK. - Click OK on the printer's properties window. - Try sending a print job to see whether it persists in the print queue.
