Can't cancel pending print job - Win XP

Question

LwnmwnMan2

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.

      I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together. Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

      Losing Sue is a great loss to the lake community and all of those that had a chance to interact with her. My young daughter has had to deal with a few close losses in our family this year/winter already, so she will be really sad to find out next spring that her favorite "ice cream lady' is no longer with us as well. Sue and Ron were always part of the experience of coming up north. Like many others I'm sure, my wife got corner by Sue last summer about how we needed to buy Moosebirds! I'll miss seeing Sue's smile each time we walk in the door to pick up some random forgotten item, for ice cream, or to find something "Moosebirds" to take home and support a good friend.

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!

      depends on what lake you go to i guess. i was up the weekend it was so bitter cold. very few lakes have plowed roads like winnie, red, mille lacs. there was probably 6 inches of snow on the ground and lake. the snow on the lake was drifted and had a bit of a crust to it. not sure what the warm strech did to it though. there are several bait shops you could call!!!!!!!!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.
