Question about Lexmark X1150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
After printing a job, the print indicator window only goes to 99% and the job never completes itself, although the paper spits out and it is finished. If I try to then print another job, it won't print because it thinks the first job isn't done (but it is). When I try to open the queue, the first document says "Deleting- printed". It's almost like it's stuck at deleting the old job. The only way I can print another document is to turn the printer off and on again, then it resets itself to "idle". This can become quite annoying if I need to print multiple documents, as I have to turn the printer on and off between each job. What can I do?
I've also had this problem with an HP LaserJet 4650dtn printer. I've solved this by: - Stop the "Print Spooler" service. - Delete all the existing print spool files. (Stored in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS" by default). - Start the "Print Spooler" service. - Right-click the printer's icon in the Printers and Faxes folder and choose Properties. - Click the Advanced tab. - Click the Print Processor... button. - Make a note of the existing "Print processor" selection on the left (in case you need to revert it.). Then change it to "WinPrint". Click OK. - Click OK on the printer's properties window. - Try sending a print job to see whether it persists in the print queue.

GregoryW's solution worked on a Dell AIO A940, except when I deleted the existing print spool files, the printers disappeared from the Printers and Faxes folder. I had to undelete one of them then the rest of the solution seems to have worked.
