I have a Dell AIO 964 printer and a print job I was doing stopped printing after 5 pages. I waited an hour, then hit "cancel all print jobs". It has been "deleting" for two hours. I've turned off the printer but when I turn it on there the job sits, still deleting. Can anyone tell me what has happened and, more importantly, how to fix it?
I have the same issue but to shut everything down and reboot my computer is not a good solution every time I need to print something. Have you figured out why this is happening and what I can do to correct it?

If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:
• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing. • The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.
If it's Busy: • Wait for the message to clear. • Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job. • Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.
If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages: • Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the printing stops. • Press and release Cancel to cancel printing. • Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.
Bidirectional Printing - A means of printing by a computer printer which prints one line from left to right, then the following line from right to left. Such printing is faster than printing in one direction only, as there is no need to wait for the carriage or other imaging mechanism to return to the left margin before starting a line. how to enable bi-directional printing.here's how:
-click on start
-click on printers and faxes (control panel->printers and faxes)
-right-click on Dell Photo All in One Printer 964 All-In-One icon
- click on properties
-click on ports tab
-down at the bottom there's a small box before bi-directional support
-tick the box to enable it then click apply,ok
-try printing again
note: in vista , printers and faxes is printers.in win 7 ,it's devices and printers. and properties in win 7 is printer properties
First of all you must let canceled print jobs finish deleting before sending new jobs, if the job is taking too long try restarting the computer with the printer on to clear the jobs this usually works if not then after restart open the printers folder and cancel all jobs here. let them finish deleting while the printer is still on (they must remain in communication during deleting jobs. Once all jobs are gone, remove the power brick from the printer for about a minute then reinsert and let the printer start up if it doesn't after a minute or so just turn it on once it finishes then try printing again.
Go to Start-> run . Type in services.msc. Find the print spooler service, right mouse click and choose stop. Open Explorer and go to c:\windows\systerm32\spool\printers and delete all files.
Go back to services.msc-- Print spooler. Right click and start service
