Documents won't delete out of que Epson CX8400

I have an Epson CX8400 and use it off and on with my laptop. The software is installed and I have printed docs before with it. I take the usb plug out of my desktop and plug it into my laptop to print. Now if I try to print a doc it will say that it is printing in the que but nothing happens. I try to delete it and it will not delete, cancel or anything I cannot get the document to go away!!!! I have tried restarting my laptop, it is still in the que. I try canceling all docs and it is still in the cue saying it is deleting. It never does!!!!!
Thanks, Sonya

Are you using Windows XP? If you are go to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services and stop the Print Spooler Service. This should clear the pending print jobs.

Then re-start the service.

BRING UP THE PRINTER PANEL AND CHECK THERE ARE NO DOCUMENTS IN THE PRINT QUES. RIGHT CLICK AND SELECT REMOVE OR DELETE THIS. YOU CAN THEN GO TO THE CONTROL PANEL AND BRING UP THE PROGRAMMES OPTION. SEARCH FOR THE EPSON PROGRAMME AND DELETE FROM HERE. IT MAY BE YOU HAD JOBS IN QUE. HOPE THIS HELPS. ANDY

Run a Printer Check A printer check will help you determine if the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating properly. 1. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series and your computer, if connected. 2. Disconnect any connected USB cables. 3. Load plain paper in the sheet feeder. 4. Press Setup. 5. Select Maintenance and press OK. 6. Select Nozzle Check and press OK. 7. Press cx7400_cx8400_ug.1.109.1.jpg Start. 8. The Epson Stylus CX8400 Series begins printing the nozzle check pattern. • If the page prints, your Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating. Your problem may be caused by your computer, cable, software, or setting selections. Check for additional solutions or re-install your software. If the pattern on the page has gaps, clean or align the print head. • If the page does not print, the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series may have a problem. Check for additional solutions.

Can't install my printer


Try disconnecting the printer and reinstalling the CD software program. After reinstalling the printer program, connect to the USB port and reboot the computer and see if it works.
May not work, but worth a try. Bud

Can't print to Epson CX8400


I had the exact same problem with the endless blank pages "printing" out.  I have a MacBook Air with OSX 10.5.6.
Before I got a chance to try and delete and reinstall all the drivers all over again, my phone call was answered by a very helpful lady from Epson's support line US: 562-276-4382.                           
Here's how easy it was to fix: Go into Apple System Preferences, click Printer & Fax. HOLD CONTROL while clicking on the printer on the left side of the screen.  When you HOLD CONTROL, it allows you to choose the option to "Reset Printers".  
Click "Reset Printers", and you will see them all disappear.  Simply plug in your CX8400 and click the plus button to add new printer.  It will search for the driver for you if you have an internet connection.  It worked for me on the first try and took only about 2 minutes total!!!!
I'd wasted so much time installing drivers and screwing with the printer before this.  Save your time for things that make you happy!  Share help when you can!
