Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have an HP Deskjet F4180 and it shuts off during print jobs. Sometimes it turns off even without having a print job in the queue. I spent an hour with an HP help desk person checking outlets and finally they sent me a new power cord. Still shuts off. This happened after I installed new ink cartridges, but I have checked them and put them in again in case something was mis-aligned. What next?
The power supply within the printer is shutting down probably due to detecting an overheat issue (make sure the vents at the side of the machine are clear of files and folders etc) If still shutting down the a new power supply will be needed. Have a look at HP.parsurfer site with your CB number at hand (on a label somewhere on the printer). I just tried the site but was locking up (surprise). You may be able to get a part number but as with most deskjets you can't get much and usually ends up with throwing away the printer. Good luck.

what you need to do is go the the control panel, performance and maintenance, administrative tools, then double click on "services".
scroll down the list to " print spooler. single click on it to highlight, then on the left click "stop"
once it is stopped, again on the left, click start.
This should clear out any print documents that became "stuck" in the print queue.

Sounds like the printer spool is frozen.
Assuming you're using WinXP and logged in as an administrator (or with admin permissions)
Locate the "Print Spooler"
Right click on this and choose "restart"
This will restart the print queue and will probably try to print the job again or delete it properly. If it tries to restart, just right click on the printer job and choose cancel again..
You may need to repeat but that should at least get you back up and running with other print jobs again.

Solved a similar problem by turning off the UAC (User Account Control) in Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines. Worked great without UAC on.
