HP LaserJet 4100 for all applications in windows 7. When I go to print a document and click on print. The print screen exits, the print job doesn't processes, and the print queue stays empty. Noth


Ideas? Yes. I had this happen on an LJ 1000 while trying to print my tax return. I tried emptying the queue, removing power from the printer, etc, etc. What finally worked was to empty the queue (again), disconnect power from the printer, shut down the computer, plug in the printer again, restart the computer, queue up a print job again, and hit PRINT.
Hope this works for you

Print driver (2228C PCL 5C) shows printer queue offline. How can I bring it back online? I have rebooted the printer. There dosen't appear to be an option on the print queue when going in as admin on...


Remove the data cable from the back or size of the printer. Turn the printer on and let it cycle. Then plug back in the data cable. It should show a green light by the cable if you are reconnected.

It just won't work. The light is green but I send a document to the printer and nothing happens. When I turn it on the light is red but if I put the "job cancel" button it will got to green.


Go to "Printers and Faxes" in the "Control Panel" and check to see if your printer shows any documents waiting to be printed, Cancel these documents and Right click your printer icon
select "Properties" and select "Print Test Page" to test your connection...For varies reasons documents sometimes fail to print and the printer queue backs up

My printer will not respond to my laptop to print


The print queue is jammed.

If this is on a network, call your administrator to clear the queue for you, if this is a local printer, you must do as follows:

1. shut down the printer
2. disconnect the power cable and the network/ usb/ parelllel cable
3. wait 5 minutes
4. put it back together
5. power the printer back up.

Good Luck!!!!!

Problem printing from my acer aspire one


Can you provide a little more information. Is the printer green power light on but neither of the red lights. Does the printer just sit there doing nothing, or does it go through the motions of printing and produce a blank sheet. If it does nothing, can you check the print queue (double click the printer icon). If there are a mass of jobs waiting (all the times you've attempted to print something), right click and select cancel all jobs. When the print list is clear, right click the printer icon and select properties. Now click on test print. If nothing happens as before, cancel this job also. Then go to control panel and uninstall the Epson printer software (the "driver"). Reboot and reinstall the printer driver. Report back if it's still not behaving.

Printing


If you're using Windows, first make sure the print queue is empty by going into Control Panel, Printers and Faxes. Select your printer and delete any documents that are showing there. If there is nothing showing there, then unplug the printer's power cord for a while to clear its memory.

HP photosmart C3180 stops printing


Posted by JACOB I understand that you are unable to print and when ever u try to print the jobs stuck in queue... When we right click on the icon if we see a option use printer online this shows that the printer is offline, if we see a option use printer offline in the list then this shows that the printer is online status. To resolve the issue we have to first clear the job in queue. Open the printer folder and then double click on the HP printer icon this will show the jobs in queue just right click on each job in queue and select cancel to clear the job in queue if there are still jobs in queue we have to performe the restart the print spooler steps by keeping the usb cable disconnected so that all the jobs are clear when the spooler is restarted. One the spooler is restarted just reconnect the usb cable and check if there are any jobs in queue. If there are no jobs in queue we can move ahead an set the print directly settings. Steps to set the print directly settings: Right click on the printer icon and select properties then click on the advance tab and under it select the option print directly to printer and click on apply and Ok to save the settings. Once done try to print to check with the issue. If the issue presists you can try to check with the port settings. Right click on the printer icon and select properties and then click on the ports tab and check if the virtual usb001 port is selected if not select it and click on apply and ok to save the settings if you don't see any usb port check if you have dot4 port in the port list select it and save the setting and try to print this should resolve the issue.. Once done try to print and if the issue presists you can try to refresh the usb ports. This will re-detect the usb drivers for printer and you will be able to print after restarting the computer.
