Can't cancel pending print job - Win XP

10 posts in this topic

I tried printing some invoices tonight, and the printer didn't print.

I cancelled all of the pending jobs, except the first one I tired printing just hangs there with "deleting" after it.

I've already tried deleting the printer itself, but it's on a network, and just comes back with the 1 pending job still.

Anyone else have a solution??

I suppose I should delete the printer from all the computers on the network as well??

Did you cancel the job and then reboot your PC?

Also while rebooting the pc, reboot your router/hub and also the printer.

I should also add to that, did anything change from the last time you printed?

I would shut down the PC all together, unplug your printer from the wall for about 2 or 3 minutes. Then you can turn them both on and should be OK. Something stuck in the printer RAM I would think.

I had a similar problem about a week ago (with a print job and the printer on a network). It took rebooting the printer and the computer 3 or 4 times for both with trying to delete the print job every time before it finally cleared. I really don't know what I did differently other that try several times. Perhaps you haven't kicked it hard enough (I have a battery backup UPS on both and I powered it down too.) Try powering down all the way and wait 10 or 15 minutes before coming back on.

Another thing to try... make sure it didn't somehow set a check by the "Pause Print Job" setting. You cannot delete a print job if it is paused, I don't think.

Good luck.

Right click on my computer and go to manage, then go to services, then stop the print spooler, you should then be able to delete the print job, restart the print spooler.

So far I've done everything, including stopping the spooler and restarting.

I got it to work once, printing a web page while I was chatting with an HP tech online, but as soon as I said "hey, now it's working again" and quit talking with the tech, it's not working again.

We were just starting the diagnosis process, so we hadn't gotten to the point of getting a fix yet.

Right now I've deleted the printer from every computer on the network, and am working on reinstalling it.

If this doesn't work, I'll be back, looking for anyone else's suggestion.

After completely ridding all the network computers of the wireless printer, and reinstalling the software, everything works again.

Now I can print from anywhere in the house to wherever again. \:D

Thanks for the help guys.....

Sometimes these new print drivers are a pain in the $$$, they seem to go corrupt on a regular basis. Another thing that comes to mind as soon as I seen wireless, is how is your printer getting it's IP address? If it getting an address through DHCP (automagically) rather than staticley assigned when you restart the wireless adapter it maybe be getting a different IP address and the rest of the PCs on the network won't be able to send to it. Unless you can do a static DHCP assignment from your wireless router you may want to statically assign an IP address that way, that is unless you already have that issue covered.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.
