Is the printer connected by USB cable? Turn on the printer, go to Start, Control Panel, System and look for the Device Manager button. There, you can see all the devices connected and if they are working or not. If the port where the peinter is connected say "working properly": delete all the jobs from the queu, uninstall the printer, disconnect it, turn off the computer and turn off the printer. After some minutes turn the computer on, plug the printer and install it again.

I want to cancel to print and my printer doesn't have a cancel icon to do this. do I just turn off my printer? My printer is PH Photosmart. Please advise - I'm new to all this. Thank You.


When u print it goes to a "cue" on the pc and stays there untill done. Turning off your printer will not work as the "job in the cue" is still there. When u turn on your printer the job starts up untill finished.

Ok to stop a print job turn off printer.

........Hope you are running windows 7
1.) Open devices and printers
2.) double click your printer
3.) select see whats printing dialog
4.) select the items in the list then right mouse click
5.) select CANCEL
6.) The job is now deleted from the que so when you turn your printer on it will not start until you print your next item.

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.

My printer isn't printing but it will scan and copy. It has items in the cue to print but they aren't working they are sitting idle.


First reset the computer and printer.
  • Unplug printer from wall
  • Restart computer
  • Plug printer back in to wall
Try to print now. This commonly occurs when files are stuck/corrupt in the print cue.
Remember
  • Only hit the print button once.
  • If it doesn't print immediately wait.
  • Wait some more
  • Open your printer que (xp Start button>Control panel>printer and faxes> double click on the specific printer.)
Now if this continues, use the above to see if the file is stuck in the cue. Try using a print test page from the printer control panel before anything else.

If the Test page works and your other print doesn't, then it is your application. Print from something else.

If even the test page won't work, then it is your drivers or your supplies are low.

Many of these printers won't work if you are out of ink. There may be a light on the printer flashing and you are out of ink.

Dell a920 printer not recognized by computer


Hope this can help you - it actually is a Lexmark printer driver. I had to have an expert come in and fix my printer when a virus deleted my printer. We couldn't reinstall it to save our lives - try the Dell site, they should have downloadable driver for this.

Flashing Green Light/ Computer can't communicate with printer......


Hi. The flashing code signifies that there is a fault with the connection between the ink cartridge and the printer - usually because either the tape is still on the cartridge or maybe some glue from the tape still on the contacts. In my case, I think the cartridge was simply knackered, so I threw it away and opened yet another ink cartridge. It now works fine.

If you want to test yours, simply take out both ink cartridges, and re-insert them one at a time. If you've put a working cartridge in the flashing will stop; if you've put the dodgy one in it'll still flash. Just replace the dodgy one.

Hope this helps.
