Turn off your computer for about 2 minutes same with your printer. Then turn on your computer first and if you are already on your desktop turn on your printer. Then go control panel and click your printer and delete the queue document. Have a nice day!

Rebooting the computer may help get rid of the print jobs stuck in the queue. If not, follow these instructions carefully:
For Windows
Stop the Print Spooler
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Go to Administrative Tools
  3. Go to Services
  4. Look for Print Spooler in the items. Double-click on Print Spooler -> click on Stop -> click Ok. Set the Services window aside.
Clear the Spool folder
  1. Go to Start
  2. Type Spool in the Search/Run bar, hit Enter.
  3. Open PRINTERS folder
  4. Delete all the files in the PRINTERS folder. Close the Window
Re-enable the Print Spooler
  1. Go back to the Services window
  2. Double-click on Print Spooler, and click on the Start -> Click on Ok. Close the Services window.

Go to Printers and Faxes and refresh the page. It should clear the print queue now.
For Macintosh
Simply launch Terminal and type cancel -a - That will clear the print queue.

Cuts off printing


Are you having a problem with your printer? If yes, and if the printer stops printing, then it has something to do with the print spooler.

Try the steps below:

On your computer:

Start > Run or Search > type "services.msc" (without quotes) > Enter.
Locate and click the "Print Spooler". Once highlighted in Blue, click the "Stop the service", then click the "Restart the service".

Then clear out the print queue, cancel all pending documents, then try printing again.

Thank you and good luck!

I cannot print a document from the computer


Try a new data cable. Check that the USB port is working - try a new port and check if a known-working device is seen by the computer. If you use a print server or a hub, try a direct connection to the computer.
Do you have the latest driver for your device? Check the Dell web site.

Is the print queue holding any documents? What does the Devices and Printers Control panel say about the printer status? If the printer is listed as ready but has jobs in the queue, you may want to stop and restart the spooler. In all versions of Windows since Win95 at least, you can do this in the command prompt (Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7). Type "net stop spooler" <hit enter> without the quotes; at the next prompt, type "net start spooler" <hit enter> again without the quotes. Restart the computer.

I hope these ideas help.

Document stuck in queue and will not delete or print.


Its a common problem. All you have to do is to restart the Print Spooler service and delete the print queue. To restart the service follow the steps: Open Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services. Now find service named "Print Spooler" and right click over it and select "Restart" to restart the service.
Now open the "Printers and Faxes" folder and try to delete the print queue. Now you will be able to delete the print queue. If applicable you can follow the steps once again if any print queue refuse to get deleted.
Once the print queue is empty, you can print from your printer smoothly.
Cheers!

Not printing


First how are you connecting to the printer? What do you see when you look at the printer details (in Windows, Start, Printers or Devices and Printers (Win7), open device (double left click or right click)) Does it say printer ready? Are there any documents in the queue?

First: check if the printer is connected to the computer and that the cable is good (new cables are a good test). If you have a USB connection, try a different port. If you use a USB hub, try connecting directly to the computer (esp. on a bus-powered hub). If you are using a print server, check that the network connection is up and try rebooting the network router.

If you have documents stuck in the queue, you can delete them. If straight deleting from the queue does not work, you can force the entire queue to empty from the command prompt or Start Run. In both cases, type "net stop spooler" without the quotes, then to restore the spooler type "net start spooler". Restart the computer. (You can do this with just the stop command but plan on going for coffee after the restart.)

I hope this helps.

I want to print new page of printing printer keeps churning out prvious printing instrctions i am 78yrs old still learning


Hi,

What you need to do is clear out the printing "QUEUE".

.
Clearing the Print Queue in Windows
The printer is one of the slowest devices in a computer system. If you had to wait for it to print your document before you could resume writing, you would quickly go back to using a typewriter. To eliminate the delay, Windows reserves a portion of memory for something called a “print queue” (or spooler). The queue works on a first-in first-out basis. You can continue to use the computer and send jobs to the spooler as it feeds a steady stream of data to the printer.
Print queues are nice, except when something happens in the printer to cause it to stop functioning. Sometimes it is just a paper jam and sometimes it is a bit more serious. If you need to cancel the jobs in the print queue, you can simply double-click the printer icon (in the system tray down by the clock) and open the print queue. Depending upon the length of your document and how many documents are waiting to print, the printer icon may appear briefly or for a sustained period. (Note: This would be a good time to remove the paper from the printer before continuing.) If the icon is not there, you can manually open the queue.
Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

This should solve your problem, Let me know how it works for you..
