This may sound radical, but remove the printer entirely from your system. The next time it comes up it will load all printer files again. Next try to print a test page and quickly see if it got out of the que, with the test page. Hope it works for you,

HP laserjet 4L wont print from computer

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP Officejet 5610 All-IN-One Inkjet doesn't print

First of all, have you ever been able to successfully print using this printer? If so, my first question would be, what has changed recently on the computer and/or printer that might have contributed to this problem? If you connected another device to the computer recently, it may somehow be interfering with your printer, either because of the physical hardware connection or because of the new device's drivers.

If you have never been able to print using this printer on this computer, the first thing I'd look for is what you looked for...connection problems. If everything is plugged in correctly, another issue might be a bad cord. Assuming the printer is powering up ok, you can rule out a bad power cord. If you are using a USB connector to attach the printer to the computer, check and see if the cord is damaged. It's very common to roll over a cord with your chair, damaging it. Even if it doesn't appear damaged, see if a replacement cord will work.

You could be having a problem with your drivers. You can try to uninstall and reinstall your printer on the computer. This will require the original driver disk that came with the printer. To uninstall the printer, you can follow the steps on this website:

Uninstalling Software in Windows

Of course, I'm assuming you are using Windows and probably Windows XP, since that's the most common choice, but I could be incorrect.

You can get all the uninstall and reinstall information on the following web page:

Setup and Install

Have you tried printing a test page? If not, see Step 2 of the instructions on the following page:

Wrong Colors

Printing a test page is a good way to see if the issue is with the printer or the computer/application. You might also want to try to print different documents created with different applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) to see if they all don't print or only docs from one application don't print.

Please reply with your results after you've given these troubleshooting steps a try. Good luck.

Printer queue is full

This problem seems to be related to USB printers and print queue issues are very common in Mac OS computers and Windows 2000 PCs.

You don't say if you are using a USB connector, but they're pretty common these days. You also don't say if you're using a Mac or PC, but most people use PCs. I did find a solution for this issue that says it's related to Windows 2000 and a USB printer, but may apply to other operating system platforms:

Print Jobs are Stuck in the Print Queue

The first step to this solution is to download and install an HP diagnostic software utility. There's a separate page at HP that describes the utility and lets you download it:

HP Printing and Diagnostic Utility

I didn't find any information that specifically said that you "can" print a test page but "can't" print a document.

Another reason why you might be able to print a test page but not a document isn't related to the printer but the application that created the document. If you are having trouble with Word or Excel or whatever office application you used to create the doc, it might not print. That's why it is helpful to try to print a variety of different docs, created with different apps.

It could also be the individual document. Occasionally, a document becomes corrupted and while you may be able to open it (and sometimes you can't do even that), it doesn't print. If you haven't tried printing more than one document, you can test this by creating another doc in the same app and seeing if it'll print.

Try doing test prints with different docs and then with docs created in different apps. If those work, it's doc/app related. If they don't, try the links I suggested above.

Good luck.
