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 live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
