Uninstalling the printer should get rid of the cancelled file and reinstalling should allow the printer to work again. Updating the driver might help but I have noticed printers generally don't like being interrupted as they work. Cancelling a file once it has been sent to the printer is a recipe for trouble because these days printers have quite a large brain and converse with the computer - give something a brain and it will soon learn to think and get moods and become emotional.

It is a good idea to disconnect the printer from the supply for a while too...

You are not very clear in saying what you mean.
Are the words completely missing from the printed doc?
Is it the same for all docs? Are the words there but not very clear? First run printhead cleaning. Its in your driver, probably under maintenance. Pixels in the printhead can become blocked especially if using compatable inks. The wiper on the ink station may have muck on it. To clean it first remove the battery if connected. Ask the printer to print something and as soon as the carriage moves pull out the mains adaptor so it stops in mid travel. Open the cover and slide the carriage fully to the left side. Shine a torch to the right side and you will see the ink station (purge unit). Use a dry cotton bud to gently wipe the small wiper rubber clean of debris. Replug and turn on and see if clear now. If still poor then a new purge unit is required. Basically that's the end of the printer as almost impossible to change the purge on its own (although available). Its best to change the whole print unit as one.That will cure ALL ills. Of course the printhead can be changed on its own. Remove it to see if anything stuck on the base of the head. Don't use chemicals to clean it ,just water and kitchen roll.

The paper feed rollers might be dirty. Please turn off the printer and clean the rollers with a soft rag with a little alcohol on it, wait a few minutes for the alcohol to dry and turn the printer back on.

The blinking orange light indicates a problem. The number of flashes before a pause or green flash will tell you what the problem is.
