    Printer document in queue will not delete problem.
    STATUS BAR: Error Processing Command


    Printer: HP PSC 1410

  • r3sidual Feb 12, 2009

    My HP 895cxi is on a wireless network. All of the 9 ghost documents inqueue are blank and have no details (size, owner, etc.), and whenever Ido try to print a document it somehow adds to the number of ghostdocuments.

    This is what does NOT work
    Restarting the spooler/printer/pc
    Stopping then Starting spooler
    Canceling Documents
    Unplugging printer

    Does anyone have the answer? It would be much appreciated.

    I followed these directions and it still says document pending, deleting. Any other documents will not print because it is still "waiting" for this document to delete.

1. First, try turning printer off and on.

2. Next, on the computer side, this is how you manually clear the printer queue.

1. Go to Start, Control Panel and Administrative Tools. Double click on Services icon.
2. Scroll down to the Print Spooler service and right click on itand select Stop. In order to do this, you need to be logged in asAdministrator. At this point, no one will be able to print anything onany of the printers that are being hosted on this server.
3. Next you need to go to the following directory: C:WINDOWSSystem32spoolPRINTERS.Delete all the files in this folder. This will clear all print queues(it’s a good idea to first make sure there are no other print jobsbeing processed on any of the other printers on the server becausedoing this step will delete those jobs also)
4. Now you can go back to the Services console and right-click and choose Start for the Print Spooler service!
You can also go to a command prompt and type net stop spooler or net start spooler to start and stop the service.

I hope this helps. If you have more questions, let me know.

    Thank you very much, Logan! This worked perfectly. Note: In Windows 7 Pro the Administrative Tools are in System and Security.

Can't print new documents but keeps printing old documents


you acumulate a number of errors or print exe commands into the printer folder and it takes them first ... do not print anything ..but open the printer folder and /delete all errors and elder comands..
also is possible that into a previous print you set the wizard to print a number of multiple copies and do not have enough paper or so ...or just closed it before completing ..this will also make it print the elder command first ...so ...open the folder...( it can be opened from the tray system by right click and choose (tray =bottom right on task bar )...

Canon MX330 - trying to use ADF. No doc inside on


Canon Pixma MX330, ADF error, Code : 2,103,0
Here's what I found. There were no stuck gears or pieces of plastic caught anywhere.
The ****** can still feed paper, except for (consistently) the last page -->error/stuck.
1) In order to CLEAR THE ERROR you need to do two things
a) & b):
a) Press OK, WITH THE HOOD OPEN, with a piece of paper loaded in the ADF, being careful to grab the paper manually as it comes out of the bottom of the hood.
b) Windex the strip of glass surface which sits under the ADF next to the platen. This needs to be done with attention to minute detail, and a bright LED flashlight; since ink smudges off of documents and collects on the glass with alarming frequency. The machine may think these smudges are caught/jammed paper.
2) In order to SCAN a stack of paper, add one blank sheet to the bottom of your document. This page will be the one that
fails to clear the ADF, generates an error, and must be manually cleared before the next job.
The rest of your pages will have already scanned.

Repeat Every Time You Use it

Having problems deleting pending documents


Assuming you have a modern windows pc, You will need to manually stop the print service. Do this by running the command "net stop spooler" from the "run" line. Then go to "C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS" and delete all the files from there. After these files are gone, start the spooler service again by running "net start spooler". You should be all set after that.
