Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies
Instead of restarting, try this:
3. Type this in the box: services.msc
4. Hit ENTER
5. Scroll down to PRINT SPOOLER
6. Right-click on it and choose RESTART
This will clear out your print queue without having to restart. Good luck!!

Hi this is the more effective way to refresh the print queue.
Manually Stop and Restart the Spooler Service

None of these worked for me when I had a "stuck" job printing from a web-page. I had to make sure the printer was offline, disconnect all networking and then make a simple "Cancel" which then worked. Might be long URLs or faulty/non-responding printing sources hanging printing Windows printing subsystem entirely (using Win 7 Pro).

SOURCE: job in queue
Let me exaplin the cause why the jobs get stuck in queue: When ever we try to print there is a windows service called print spooler that manages the print jobs in queue. We can clear the jobs in queue by just disconnecting the usb cable and restarting the print spooler service. Here are the steps to restart the print spooler : 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3.In the Run box type " net stop spooler " Then press enter Note: Type the text with out inverted cotes in the run box this will stop the print spooler service Next we have to restart the print spooler 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3In the Run box type " net start spooler " and press enter Once done reconnect the usb cable and check for the jobs in queue. If there are no jobs in queue you can set the print directly settings to avoid this issue in future. Just open the printer and faxes folder and right click on the printer icon and select properties and 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 this should resolve the issue.. Wish u success..

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.

you need to delete the jobs and print the stuffs...
you need to give the following commands in the command promt which can be accessed from the start menu or by clicking "windows key+r"
net stop "print spooler"
to stop the print spooler
after you have stoped the print spooler
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.
now try to print the stuffs..
if it clears the mess please give a vote....

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
