Print Jobs remain in queue although already printed

Q: Print Jobs remain in queue although already printed

In Vista, one print job (the last) on a Lexmark will not delete from the queue. No new print jobs will print out. If there are more jobs created, they add up in the queue. I'm trying not to uninstall and reinstall, this has happened frequently with this printer, albeit with an inexperienced user. Please help. TIA

Hi All,

I dont know if i've got this in the right forum but i've got a WinXP Pro Machine so thought i'd try it here.

The problem is that my print queue seems to retain the print jobs although the print jobs have already been printed out (i've seen it retain jobs from 5 days ago). I happens from all sorts of programs.

My PC is acting a print server (ie, the printer is connected to my PC via Parallel and i have shared my install of this printer).

In the print queue, the status indicates "sent to printer" and Pages "x/x - eg 3/3" however the print jobs remains in the queue and do not disappear unless i manually do a "cancel". If i were to turn off and then on the PC, all these print jobs will print out again without any user interaction.

So, can anyone tell me if this is a driver issue or is it something to do with the printer or Parallel port configuration.

As far as i know, i've got "bi-directional support" selected but i'm still to find out what modes i've got parallel set to eg. EPP or ECP or both.

Any help would be great. thank you.

regards
Steve

I have 3 print queues that are retaining the printed jobs in the queue and every now and again the damn thing prints all the job again. I have checked that the keep printed jobs button is NOT checked/selected, but the queue acts ilke it is selected to keep printed jobs. I have 125 printer queues and only 3 act like this and they are set up identical to the others. I have reconfigured this twice on all 3 and they still act like they are set to keep printed jobs in the queue.

Anyone seen this and know of a solution, on the Microsoft site I am seeing posts but not a single reply about how to either run a job to clear them out a couple times a day or fix this so they act as configured. To NOT keep printed jobs in the queue.

Any help as always is much appreciated.

The race to solution is on, let's see who can figure this one out first.

I have an end user that is printing to a networked Xerox printer. When he prints, his print jobs automatically show in the print queue as "paused". This only happens on the Xerox. I had him try doing this with a networked HP in his area and it doesn't happen on that printer.

I have removed and reinstalled his driver and device. It appeared to be working then a few days later, it does the same thing. We've even had Xerox flash the printer and reset their printer software on the machine as well. From what I see, most of his print jobs are mostly from Outlook and/or Word. Any thoughts here?

Hello,
I wasn't sure where to post this question so I am posting it here. The issue we are having is printing to a networked copier. If we print one job at a time everything works. But if I send multiple jobs all at once and the queue builds up the copier just hangs and the jobs just stay in the queue. The only way to get it going again is to turn the copier off/on. I've updated the drivers for the copier, changed the patch cable on copier and switch, moved it to a different port on the swtich. None of those things did anything. I am actually thinking there is something going on with the copier. Any help would be great. Thanks!!

A:Print Jobs are Stuck in the Print Queue

Update to the latest drivers, or get a new printer if that doesn't help. In my experience, that's one of those "mystery problems" that can happen for a number of reasons, and I've rarely been able to narrow the problem down in a reasonable amount of time. Sometimes it's cheaper to just deal with it or replace it.

I have desktop PC running VISTA Home Premium 32bit attached to a home network with a local HP 1020 LaserJet printer attached via USB. This computer works fine by itself. On the network is a notebook PC running VISTA Home Premium 64 bit. When the notebook sends a print job to desktop, the job sticks in the print queue of the desktop. None of the menu commands on the desktop have any effect on releasing the print job. Print jobs from the desktop and notebook pileup behind the original print job. The only way I know of to print the stuck jobs is to reboot the desktop PC. As soon as I login, all the stuck print jobs start printing???

Does anyone have a fix???

Anyone ever seen anything like this? There are 3 jobs stuck in the printing queue on a users Win 7- 64bit computer. The printer is a networked HP Color LaserJet CP4525. The jobs only show up on this computer, not on the printer itself or anyone else
when they pull up the queue. They do show up for all users of this computer though and they show "deleting - spooling". Get this though, He can still print to this and other printers! The new job pops up, and goes right on through. Its really just
a cosmetic issue I guess.
There are no jobs in the printer folder. I have tried stopping the spooler, removing them every way I can find on google, other then starting to delete drivers and software etc.. I don't know that we want to go that far as its really not affecting his work. We
have removed the printer and reinstalled also.
I'm thinking there has to be some file(s) somewhere that windows is pulling this from to even make these show up in queue, but I cant find it.

Like the title says I have a user printing to an HP 4200 via a print server, and we've tried everything short of a reinstall.

Dell e6500
Win 7 Enterprise 64bit

We've cleared the print spooler using command line, manually, and Windows troubleshooter.

Yes in both the PRINTERS and SERVERS folders. The jobs in question do not appear in either one.

We've deleted and re-added the printer and it's driver.

We've reset the printer completely.

I've recreated the User's profile, no joy.

We've cleared the user from the Print Users group, and re-added, no joy.

We've manually tried to delete all print jobs from the server side, no joy.

Other users have no problems, it is on this one computer only.

This is my last hurrah before just doing a reinstall, but I've wasted enough time on this beast.

Thanks for any ideas.

I have two computers one with Windows XP which is networked through a hub to a Windows 98 computer. I have a printer connected directly to the Windows XP computer. The printer works fine off the XP computer. Now the Windows 98 computer can see the printer. It does show up in the printers window from the Start menu and the little symbol underneath does indicate it is networked. However, when I try to print a file from the 98 computer, a little window opens up on the 98 screen idicating that it is printing, but nothing prints. The file remains in the printer queue. Any ideas on how to get the printer to work from the Windows 98 computer?

Brother HL-5240 laser printer on USB has worked correctly for 3 months. Now it no longer prints, with no error message.
Stopping the queue shows the job entering, but disappearing as soon as the queue is restarted.
I have stopped & started the spooler; deleted and recreated the printer with the latest driver but still no go.
I can print to another USB printer correctly so it doesn't appear to be a spooling problem.

I have 2 identical emachines desktop computers running Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 with all the updates connected to the network with wireless cards. Computer #2 has a HP LaserJet 2600n printer attached and shared. I can see the printer on Computer #1 and get it to install. I can print from Computer #2 with no problem. If I try print from Computer #1 the job just sits in the print queue with the status of “Printing” but the job is never actually printed. Additional jobs from either computer are forced to sit in the queue behind the “stuck” print job. If I restart Computer #2 or restart the print spooler on it, all of the jobs that are in queue at that time print. If I try to print from Computer #1 after the queued jobs have been printed the new job will get “stuck” again. I can see all of the print jobs in the queue on both computers and I never get any errors.​
I have tried changing the setting for which computer does the spooling and if it should print after the last page is spooled or start printing immediately and it has not had any noticeable effect. I have had the printer connected and shared on both computers and had he same results.

I welcome any suggestions that my resolve the issue.

Hi all,

This should be an easy one, but I've been banging my head against it for a week. I'm hoping I've just been looking at it to closely and someone can take a look from a different perspective, smack me on the back of head, call me an idiot, and point to the obvious solution.

I'm trying to fix a home network. It consists of one desktop computer, two laptops, and a printer. The desktop is attached to the router by a cable, and has the printer, which is shared, and the laptops are wireless. Everybody is running Windows XP Pro, and this is Lexmark Z45 inkjet.

The problem is with printing. It worked until about a week ago, but now when the laptops send a job to the printer, it just sticks in the queue with the status of printing. The desktop can print, so it doesn’t seem to be the printer. The laptops can see the printer, they can connect to the printer, they can send jobs into the queue, but then they just sit there.

I’ve reinstalled the printer on the desktop and the laptops, I’ve downloaded new drivers, I’ve restarted the services, I’ve attached to the share using the computer name as well as just its IP address, I’ve made administrator accounts on the desktop using the same username and password as the laptops use, I’ve made a separate printer account on the desktop and connected using that, and they’re in the same workgroup.

Hi
We have a need to find out quickly who is printing and how mucha are they printing to a particular printer. We enabled logging of all spool activity to the event-viewer which records all the printing which takes place through the Printer and gives quite a concise description of what was printed. Is there a way that we could transport this information to some sort of a file where we could get a clear indication as to who has printed and how much as well.

Hello Everyone,
I have tried searching and searching for this problem but nothing seems to come up with this particularly odd problem. I'm actually running 3rd party software hosted on an AS/400 system but from a Windows 7 32-bit computer. If I right-click the title-bar of the window and select print, the print dialog box comes up asking for the printer I want to use. I select one, then click "Print" and the following comes out on the page....
<See Sample.jpg> (Of course, that's not an actual page, it's a representation of what you'd see on the page, but it's accurate despite the fact that it's color. Anyway, the print screens come out light and don't scan in well.)
As you can see, the print dialog box is clearly visible on the page. This seems to randomly crop up only on Windows 7 boxes and once it starts, we seem to have no way to stop it.
HEEEEyyyUUULLPP!!!

I'm running XP Professional. Junk print jobs keep showing up on my Brother MFC 7840-W printer. When viewed in the print queue, the file has no name, but shows a size of 87 bytes.

The printer is installed on my computer. My computer is set up as a print server. I am still able to scan, make copies, and fax from the printer, and fax remotely from my computer. I have restored my system multiple times. I had AVG anti-virus on this machine installed a while before this started happening. I tried installing McAfee Security. The Tech Support at McAfee said there is no virus on my machine and that I should contact the printer manufacturer. Tech Support at Brother said to delete and reinstall the printer drivers. I have deleted and reinstalled the printer drivers multiple times.

I do not want to reinstall XP Pro because it may mess up the setup of an important business application which is no longer supported by the software creator.

Just migrated our office to a new Server 2012R2 Print server. about a dozen printers installed via GPO to Windows 7/64 workstations. Mostly HP's running Universal PS driver (6.1), plus the odd Kip plotter and Xerox Copier.   For maybe 4 users
out of 30 some, there is a printing problem. When a print job is sent, it appears in the queue and then is immediately deleted.   No other indication that anything is amiss. No events fire, no dimming of the icons or exclamation points,
 no error messages.
 That's the consistent part. There is also some inconsistent (but still bad) behavior I'm finding on the different PCs. For some, deleting and re-running gpupdate will  bring the printers back and printing properly, but only for a short time. Sometimes
only one or two printers will print, sometimes not. Sometimes logging in as a different user will install the printers, sometimes no.
 I've been fiddling with this over the past few days and gotten absolutely no where.  Now I don't know what to look at next. Any idea would be appreciated!

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Earlier this week, our laptop popped up something suspicious, which sent me here. I was assisted, and as far as I know, the laptop was cleaned out. I ran an MBAM quick-scan, ran ATF or something, and an SAS full-scan, and all came back clean. The original topic is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/227843/potential-trojan-or-other-problem/I installed Avira Antivir, COMODO (firewall only), and Spybot S&D to monitor the registry in the future. For further malware intrusions, this is likely good. However, since installing S&D, Vista has been giving error messages (ie, "Microsoft HTML Executable no longer working," or "Microsoft NET Command stopped functioning" type things). However, the actions I initiate appear to work, despite these errors.In addition, and the real bugger today!, is the printer will print out a document, but the print queue will not clear that item from the spool, and the printer is useless unless we restart the machine.

I ran into a very odd issue today that as-is I only have working using a workaround. I have a 32-bit windows 7 machine. The HP 6968 printer is hooked into my wireless router via ethernet cable. I downloaded the drivers and ran the setup on another ethernet connected Vista 32-bit machine and a wireless Win7 64-bit machine. Both print just fine.

On the Windows 7 32-bit machine though, nothing will print. I can successfully SCAN using the printer listed under Devices & Printers so I know the computer is talking to the 6968.

When I do try to print I get a message saying that the job has been sent to the printer. The printer never starts and when I view the print queue nothing shows up. I have tried restarting the spooler service and that does not work either. I also made sure there was nothing listed in the "C:\Windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS" directory which there was not. One odd thing I did notice, is that when I print a file will show in this directory for a second and then disappear.

As a work-around, I set up the 6968 on the Vista machine (which is always on) as a shared printer. I then added this shared network printer from the 32-bit Windows 7 machine that I am having the issue with.

That's odd. AFAIK, for HP AIOs, one cannot simultaneously use both ethernet and wireless networking.
I think it's "either-or".
I am surprised that you can have both ethernet and wifi enabled on the HP at the same time.
Normally, one would need to disconnect the ethernet to use the wifi, or vice versa.

One *can* use a local (USB) connection + either ethernet or wifi at the same time, though.

I suggest the following for starters:
Disconnect the 32-bit Win7 machine from the HP
Fully uninstall all traces of the HP drivers/software and reboot
Download a fresh copy of the HP drivers/software from the HP drivers/downloads site HEREBe sure to grab the correct drivers/software package for 32-bit Windows 7
There are 2 choices -- the full bloatware package and the "basic drivers"

I have multiple networked HP printers, HP3600 and HP6300. Two computers are having similar symptoms: print jobs will be spooled for printing, yet they don't print. Reboot is required, then all jobs spooled will print. Following the re-boot, printing will work fine for a period of time - that is hours or maybe one day, but never longer than two days.

Operating System: XP with ServicePack 3

I've played with having the printer IP served from DHCP or fixed, with no difference in behavior. Print Spool services are running OK when this occurs.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated -been working on this for months, and it is driving us crazy.

Hi there, I'm new to the forum but have a reasonable knowledge of techie stuff.

My problem is printing to a network based print server - specifically an HP JetDirect 175x.

Whenever I send a print job to the JetDirect, it goes into the queue and just sits there. I guessed it was a problem with the spooler.svc , so I restarted that and then refreshed the print queue and hey-presto out popped my print job. The problem is that this happens very, very frequently so much so, I've written a batch file to reset the spooler for me. (see below)

My question is: Does anyone know a permanent solution to this niggle? I've seen it happen on a couple of other XP machines but not all. Oh yes and it seems to become more consistently bad when my modem detects that the phone has rung. Possibly something to do with the fax spooler service maybe???

Many Thanks - JB

I've had this problem with every PC I've ever used, so either I'm doing something wrong or there is a major bug in WinXP.

What I did was: realized I printed the wrong document, an 80 pg doc., oops! So the first thing I do is go to the printer icon in the system tray and double click, then I right click the print job and select 'cancel'. Nothing happens. (it says "deleting print job" but it never deletes. So I turn off the printer, this stops the printing but the job is still in que and the next time I try to print the correct document it's stuck behind the one the one that is "deleting".

I even reboot the PC, and try to print the correct document but the 80pg. doc starts printing again!! ARGHHH!!!

Is it just me or is there something wrong the funcionality of this feature??? I'm not sure how but after several minnutes of rebooting, turning off the printer, cancelling the print job and pulling out my hair, the print job finally goes way.

What is the official way to cancel a print job?

Thanks in advance!!

Click to Highlight.

On the right side, scroll down until you see Print Spooler.
Right Click on Print Spooler, and click on Stop.
Keep this window open.
Open My Computer.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\Spool

Delete all of the files in the Directory, but DO NOT delete any of the

Close this window.

Go back to the services window.

Right Click on Print Spooler. Then click on start.

The jobs should now be gone.

Greetings folks, and Happy Holidays to all!

When printing any document or web page, my printer shoots out the first couple of pages ok, but then spits out 1 or 2 blank sheets with the last sheet saying:

ERROR: timeout

STACK

(In this area are some illegible characters, which vary for each print job)

Hope this isn't too vague. Any help is much appreciated.

I have 3 computers, a desktop and 2 laptops on a wireless network. Never had problems until upgrading from XP to win 7 on my desktop.
Desktop – Win 7 (Pro)…Laptop 1 – Win 7 (Home edition)…Laptop 2 – XP Pro
Laptop 2 (XP) is NOT on Homegroup but I can print files to a USB printer (HP c6150) connected to the desktop. (Can’t share files through Homegroup, etc. – a Win 7 thing!)
Laptop 1 (Win 7): I can access Internet and view files with the desktop. I can share files between desktop. However, I cannot print – the jobs reach the print queue on the desktop briefly but never print.

Hi,

We have a networked printers at work (3 xerox machines between about 30 people). We each have the default set up to the nearest one, as this seems easiest.
We would print from Office 2003 and our Oracle ERP programmes on Windows xp, but as you can imagine, as the printer is scheduling the jobs, the your print jobs can get mixed up on the printer with everybody elses jobs - particularly if one printer goes down (3 sheets of yours, then 1 belong to somebody, then 5 more of yours etc.)
Is there anyway that I could schedule my jobs so that they would all print off at once? (without scheduling everybodys' jobs)
My thinking is that when I click print there may be somewhere that my print jobs can be sent(not directly to the printer), and then where I want I could send them all to the printer at once.

Tks

I am so confused. My printer prints the first job then it will do 2 things. After the first print it sometimes freezes Microsoft and won't print the second job. The other thing that it does is it will print the first job and then say that print jobs are queues and won't print any more jobs. I have uninstalled the software and downloaded the new driver. I changed it from EMF to RAW and all that does is insure that it WILL freeze up after the first print job is completed. I have uninstalled and installed all my hardware and still to no avail. I have no clue what to do next. My printer is an HP deskjet 712c. I have a PII and running windows 98 and it happens whenever I try to print from any location; internet, notepad, or MS office and word. Please help!!!!!
My child is in need of the printer for a school project and restarting the computer after every job is going to get old.

I haven't phoned MS for support for quite some time, but as I recall, if they can't resolve the issue there is no charge. You might want to check on that.

In regards to the issue you are having, I am not going to pretend that my background is superior to MS developers, so, if they don't know the cause, I am going to gracefully bow out.

We upgraded our Windows 7 professional computers to Internet Explorer 11. When we print a multiple page document from Internet Explorer 11, we set the print job to be collated, but it does not collate the print job. In other words, instead of printing the
job pages 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, it is printing the job 1-1-1, then pages 2-2-2, then pages 3-3-3, etc.
This only happens when printing from IE 11 - other programs such as Word, Excel, Acrobat Reader, etc. print collated jobs normally. We also have some computers that are still using Internet Explorer 8 and they can print these print jobs collated.
I have been led to a hot fix that might fix this problem, but it says I must contact Microsoft support to get it. The following is the link I was referred to: KB2744968
Has anybody run into this problem? Anybody know where or how I can get this hot fix?

We've been trying to track down a user that printed banned material over the network to one of our color printers. Various attempts to find the file itself, and trying to find the webpage (if it exists) that it came from, have yielded nothing. This leads be to beleive that it was brought in on portable media, which is another violation of our EULA.

Basically, I would like to know if there's anyway that I could view any or all of the past print jobs sent to the printer through XP? I'm not sure if there's a print log stored in XP or not. I'm really just trying to find what machine it came from.

Thanks in advance for any help.

* other job attributes such as paper size, color mode and more.

...and it's free.

Hello All

Can anyone help me at all with this problem???

We have several large capacity printers at our site all set up onto a print server via network ports. Recently we have moved from windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000 Server. This is a different machine as well. 2 x 2.8ghz Xeon processors and 2gb of Memory.

We are using two fairly powerful Windows 2000 Professional workstations to spool the print jobs up.

Now the problem that is occurring is that for no apparent reason, on occasion when a print job has been spooled and is printing to the printer, the job will just restart again from Page 1. There are no errors or messages on the Event logs of either Workstation or on the Servers. This is happening on each kind of printer we have (Kyocera, HP, Lanier etc).

At first I thought it could be network traffic but this sometimes happens even when a small job has been spooled to just one printer. I've tried adding extra memory, putting the printers on a different network altogether but still the problem occurs.
Can anybody help????

I run Windows XP Pro on my desktop and Home on my laptop. I have both of them hooked up via a USB hub to a Samsung B&W laser printer model ML-1210 and an HP color inkjet printer, model deskjet D4100. Both printers work fine from both computers, with one infuriating exception!

Whenever something clogs up the print queue, I can NEVER NEVER NEVER delete the offending document! I click on the little printer icon on the task bar and open up the offending printer and select the document that isn't printing and NOTHING HAPPENS! I get the "deleting" message on the screen, but the document never gets deleted!

Just now, I unplugged the entire HP printer, and still no help! Now, I'm trying to print another document, but of course it won't print, because the ^(&()^*(&&)(&ing document I'm trying to delete won't delete!

Which software is screwing me up? Windows? Or one of the printer drivers? I don't know which software is running whenever I click on the printer icon and select a doc to delete, so I don't know which vendor to be mad at most! Moreover, I have no clue how to fix the problem since I don't know whose software is causing it! But, as you can surely tell, IT PISSES ME OFF!

Go to services. Look for print spooler, make sure it is set to automatic

If that is ok

Turn off printer, disconnect from the computer.

reconnect and turn on


If that does not help reinstall and look for new drivers and do step 2 again.

Suddenly I am having trouble printing everything in the print queue. I can print a few things, then it will lock up. I believe it is in my management level. I have followed my manufacturers suggestions which takes me to my Windows XP. It tells me there are 3 levels for print access and usage, i.e. print, manage print and manage documents. I am obviously in the lowest level now, with no control. I believe my level was changed when Network software was installed when I installed MS Office 2003 Small Business. In a business network scenario, only a 'Manager' would have full control of the print queue. In my situation, it is still a 'stand alone', single computer and printer. I have searched for these controls and can't find them.

Hia,

I work as technical support for a small charity who have a variety of PCs for use by elderly groups in care homes. There is a recurring problem that has stumped me since I started working here. The problem is that the printers will sometimes stop printing when there is more than 1 item in the print queue but will continue to print normally when the print queue is cleared. Most of the computers have the same EPSON D68 photo printer connected with a USB cable, so I thought it may have been an issue with that printer or the USB connection but another computer with a different printer (I don't have the model at the moment, I think it's HP and connected via USB) is reporting similar problems.

Although it is quite easy to work around this issue by clearing the print queue, this is really too complex for our users to deal with and there is no good reason for why the printer stops working through the queue.

Commonly what is happening is that a users will press the print button in something like IE twice, causing 2 items to spool to the print queue. Most of the time both will print normally but occasionally neither will print and all subsequent jobs sent to the printer will just stack up and to the user it appears that it's broken. The printer will be switched on and will have been printing fine just before and the print queue will state "Printing..." in the status for the top job. To fix all the user has to do is to "clear all documents" fro... Read more

So while working as the print administrator for a large healthcare company, I had a big wig come to me expressing concern over a "vulnerability" with their network printers. So when he right clicks on a network printer on his computer, he selects "see what's printing" and can see the jobs that are in the print queue for that printer that are waiting to be printed. Now keep in mind, most times you can only see this if there is an issue with the printer not printing, such as if it's jammed or out of ink, or if there are too many secure print jobs eating up the printer memory and backing up the print jobs onto the print server.

We have several users who don't understand that after they send these secure print jobs to the printer, they need to go release them in a timely manner so as not to eat up the memory of the printer.

So his issue is, anyone can select "see what's printing" on these network printers and see the jobs sitting in the queue and can delete any print job from there. I have been looking to see if there is an option to turn that off, but so far I cannot locate anything of this nature. Can you disable the "see what's printing" feature?

You could always try turning the spooler service off...then turning it on again. Or simply delete/uninstall the printer and software...and then reinstall it.

It occurs when printing PDF files, long word documents... basically anything that has a lot of info. As it is going slowly through once the first page is about 2/3rd printed the Jam error occurs. The next sheet has not moved at all so clearly isn't causing an issue.
If I set the quality to Fast Draft it prints with no problem, but obviously it isn't as good a copy.

On the frequent occasions when we are operating the server remotely from the offices on another floor, it would be *very* handy if we could redirect print jobs to a networked LaserJet in those offices, rather than having to run up and down the stairs to retrieve the printouts from the server room.

What I would like to do is attach a device to the server's USB port that could intercept those USB print jobs and route them over the LAN to the desired network printer (either to the one by the server or to a printer in the offices). Ideally, the device would have an Embedded Web Server to allow one to change the destination printer selection with a Web browser. (Preferably, the selection would also automatically change back to the server room printer after a few minutes.)

There are a lot of solutions for sharing... Read more

A:Sending USB print jobs to network printers

Can the server see the network? If so you should be able to configure the printer queue to a networked print queue.

I have an HP1200 laserjet and all works well except that the print jobs listed in the print dialogue box do not delete after printing. I have to got thru and cancel the print jobs to get rid of these. Does anyone know what may be wrong? I have this printer set up thru a Linksys printserver. If this has an impact I'm not sure. Thanks.

I have two Win2K machines that are starting to bog down when printing. Half the time it seems to be machine specific and the other half it seems to be printer specific so I havent been able to track it down. Has any one else experienced this?

A:{RESOLVED} Print Jobs are dragging with Win2K

Greetings

All I can offer are the usual things to check:

1) Latest drivers need to be installed
2) Check resources when printing, as you may need more memory
3) Check printer cable
4) Test printing from different applications (like Notepad, Paint, etc). it may be that the application you are printing from is creating especially large print files.
5) Check free space on HD, as your print Spooler might be needing more space if you are very cramped for space.

Cheers

Hi,

I teach computers to people, who have the classes as part of their re-qualifications to get better jobs (so often people with no or very little computer skills, who can be sometimes the most dangerous people around computers). Recently, at the request of school's headmaster, I got printer to my computer classroom, to allow students to print some stuff (like CVs they learn how to create, etc).
The printer (HP LaserJet Pro P1102) is connected to Teacher PC, which is in the same workgroup as the rest of the PCs in classroom.
Now, I would like to set up the printer to hold all print jobs from the workgroup, so that teacher would need to "approve" the printing, to prevent people from printing junk, but to eliminate the need to walk around with flashdisk.
I have seen this at work (at my college), so I know it is somehow possible. The approving of printing was done from the "see what's printing" window.

Thanks for any help.

A:Pause all print jobs before printing begins

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything.

I think I remember reading that if you want to pause (or resume) all documents that are waiting to print, you need permission to manage the printer. To view printer permissions, right-click the printer that you're using, click Properties, click the Security tab, and then click your user name. If your computer is on a domain, printer permissions might be controlled by the administrator.

What are printer permissions?

I hope this gives you a starting point to solve your problem.

I am looking for a PDF Printer that converts multiple print jobs into one PDF. I want to convert some old digital manuals to PDF. They are in MVB format and the program to view them is Microsoft Multimedia Viewer 2.00. The way this program handles printing the entire book is by sending each individual page to the printer as a separate print job. A lot of these manuals have 50 or 100+ pages. I am looking for a PDF printer that will convert all these print jobs on one PDF. I have tried CutePDF, doPDF and BullZip PDF printer. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Three days ago when I tried to print from the web and then WORD there was no installed printer. I checked and the printer was still installed but when printing a document the print screen said their was no printer installed. I checked and the print spooler was not working. So I downloaded the Microsoft tool MicrosoftFixit.Printing.Run.exe. I ran it and presto the printer worked but only once and when I went to print again, again the print box showed that there was no printer installed. So I have to run the Microsoft.Fixit.printing.run.exe tool every time I want to print a page then restart the computer. A royal pain and time waster.

Something is turning the spooler off and not allowing individual programs to see the installed printer and therefore reports that there is no installed printer.

2nd issue. this is a new laptop (ACER) and there is no LED light to show "Caps Lock". I did find a setting that flashes the screen and makes an audible beep. However, my wife has the exact same computer and hers has a 2" x 2" box appear each time she puts cap Lock on. Which is way less distracting than audible beeps and flashing screens. Is there a setting for this? I have not found one in the Microsoft website for Windows 7.

Help,

I have a gradebook that is very different from traditional gradebooks. Each class is a separate file and then each student has their own worksheet so I can individually track their proficiency on a variety of tasks (By all means tell me if this is stupid and recommend an easier way). When I want to print out a students gradebook sheet for a conference, how do I get their name (which is on the tab, to print with the printed page?

Thanks
 

A:How do I get Worksheet tabs to print when sheet is printed?

Hi,

A short answer ...
Code:
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterHeader = ActiveSheet.Name
A question though ... would it be somewhat effective to loop through all sheets in a file and do this? Also, how about looping through all files in a folder and doing this? Would it not be easier to do them all at once, or is this a 'one-shot deal'?

Also, btw, you can do this with LeftHeader, RightHeader, LeftFooter, CenterFooter & RightFooter. Other format attributes can also be added if desired.

I am running Win 7 Pro with 4gb or memory.

In the last few days something has changed and when I try to print a txt or word doc file. It will not print, but sends the file to queue. It has only been a few days since I last used the printer.

The printer is a Samsung ML-1610 that I installed the the Vista drivers for Win 7. It has been working perfectly up until now.



In the Device Manager there are no driver errors showing but at the same time no printers are shown either. I have no idea if printers ever showed.



Here are the printer options which have never been changed since I initally installed the drivers.



One thing that is also weird; I have Win XP Pro installed on a second hard drive which I can boot into. It does exactly the same thing.

Since the last time I used the printer I can only think of two things that may have caused this problem.
I installed Xilisoft Video Editor (seems to work fine) and also installed about 35 fonts. I installed the fonts by copying them and pasteing into Windows Fonts Folder.

If anyone has a clue I would appreciate some help.

Tried all ways I can find on internet to clear the print queue of my vista laptop trying to print to a networked printer.

New install, never printed succesfully but installation was problem free until,
The usual test page will not print and never can be cleared from queue.
Another file in the queue is then blocked to print but any file after the first test page will delete.
Clear queue usual ways first.
Then try:-
Stop spooler, Delete .SHD and .SPL files, restart spooler
Uninstall, reinstall driver, all restart, off/on etc, file pops up again as in process of being deleted but never does.
If try from start/printers/right click/cancel all documents/yes gives 0x000005 Access Denied.

Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I cannot delete a document from the print queue on a networked HP printer. I think I caused the problem by turning off the printer mid-job because the cartridge was dry, but now that doc. is keeping everything from printing. I have stopped the print spooler and gone to C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS. Someone told me there would be document files then and I could then delete them, but there are no files.
What else can I do.

Many, many thanks in advance.

Usually if you delete the document, stop and then restart the print spooler, and then try delete again, it works.

I have also had good luck with clicking delete and then turning the printer off and on while its still trying to delete. That will sometimes kill it immediately.

Ok I can not get this print job out of the queue. I moved a printer and told everyone to stop printing while I did and of course no one listened. So now I have one job that I can't delete.

The things I have tried on both the PC that the user was logged into;
1. I went to both the PC that the user was logged into highlighted the print job hit "Delete"
2. Went to services and stopped and restarted the print spooler
3. When to the cmd line and did a net spool stop and restart
4. Unplugged the printer and print server for over 24 hours
5. Reboot all PCs involved a bunch of times
6. Deleted the printer from the PCs
7. Went to the spool folder to clear it out but it was empty

Note I did all the above with variations of rebooting PC, printer, and Print server. The print server is a small netgear with a assigned IP address. This is day three and a big POA. Any suggestions.

We have a user who is running windows 2000, and we have a number of printers the one this problem always happens to is an HP Laserjet 5500 colour printer. This has not been set up as the users default printer.

Every now and then, a pile of documents print as if by magic to this printer, if you look at his print queue, there are literally hundres of his documents all with different submitted dates, and we have no idea how they are ending up int he queue and printing.

I would have expected if there was a problem they would print to his default printer, but they always print to this one.

Any help would be much appreciated, as we have no idea what is causing this. He is not sending them manually, they are also often emails.

In any MS Office program things sent to the print queue will print but are not subsequently erased from the print queue (the way it previously worked) so the same things keep getting printed unless I open the printers and faxes window and cancel all documents in the queue.

We are setting up a public computer at work for kids to use, write papers on, etc. We are going to be setting up a printer in there for them to print out their write ups on, but don't want them to be printing off random stuff from the web.

I was wondering what kind of printer control can be implemented here, we were thinking of setting up some kind of admin approval thing, where the print request would be sent to the front desk, where it would be approved or denied, and then print right there at the local machine.

Is this possible? If it is not, one option I was thinking of was having the printer password protected, and when they want to print they come ask for the password.. but they could still print random stuff off all they wanted after that, versus approval for each indavidual print job... Hm.

Any thoughts on the matter? I've never had this kind of request before, but it seems like a fair enough request for a public printer. I'm not too familiar with public computer setups, this is my first project so any help is appreciated!

Thanks much.

Trying to help a friend out with their printer problem. They are printing from a WindowsXP laptop over a network. The laser printer is hooked up to their desktop in another room.

Everything will be fine and dandy, printing works no problem, and then all of a sudden the que will get jammed up with OLD jobs, and you won't be able to print until you clear it.

I've cleared the jobs multiple times, even deleted the printer and added it again, same thing.

here is a screen shot...

notice the date on the print jobs, they are from 2008! where the hell are these things coming from? and why do they keep coming back even after you clear them.
 

A:Print Que Problem, Full of Old Jobs (Screenshot included)

Try this:

Click START, click RUN, type SERVICES.MSC in the run line and click OK.
Scroll down the list of services and Double-Click Print Spooler.
Click the button to STOP the service. You may get a warning that stopping the spooler service will also stop other dependent services like FAX. Make note of the other services that will be stopped and click YES. You can leave that window open.

Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\spool\printers and delete everything in that folder.
Close that window, click START on the Print Spooler service (and any other services that were stopped in the earlier part of this process).

Click OK to close the Services manager.

Click START, CONTROL PANEL (Classic View), Printers and Faxes.
Check the print queue again---refresh the view if you need to.
The queue should be clear.

I'm helping to develop a web application that uses iframes. On the main page (outside of all frames), we have a div that we use to display and print forms. We also have 2 nested iframes; the innermost iframe contains the main page content. When printing, we use extensive CSS and Javascript (contained in the outermost window) to hide everything except the print div.

When I use File > Print Preview, it always displays the correct preview; that is, the outermost window which contains the print div. Printing from the Print Preview works as it should. However, when I use File > Print, it seems to print whatever window has focus, not the entire page (outermost window). Therefore my print div doesn't get printed and all I get is a printout of whatever is currently onscreen. Why doesn't the print out from File > Print match what is shown in the print preview?

A related issue occurs when using JavaScript's window.print(). When I call window.print from within the print div, it prints as it should. But when I call parent.parent.window.print() from within the double-nested iframe, IE still only prints the window that has focus, not the outermost window (as shown by "parent.parent."). And since they just clicked on a button in the innermost frame, the innermost frame has focus, my print div doesn't print and all I get is a printout of whatever is currently onscreen. I have been using "parent.parent" for all other Javascript calls from the nested iframe to th... Read more

I have a HP C4850 configured to work through the wireless. I can ping the printer and access its internal web page. Network configuration prints out no fails or errors so as far as I can tell everything is configured correctly. If I send it a print job, a small notepad document with the text "test" in it, it won't print. Eventually it just seems to forget the print job is there. However if I send the job, then print the network device configuration, the print job will print immediately after. I did this 3 times and it was consistent in its behavior. I'm at a complete loss, any ideas?

My wife's classroom computer, a Dell Optiplex with XP Professional Version 2002 SP 2, has an HP DeskJet 3520 attached locally via USB. Most of the time it won't print; the document hangs in the print queue, does nothing to the printer except change the power light from steady to blinking (no noise, etc.). The document shows as printing until an attempt is made to delete it, then it shows as deleting but it never does. The only way to delete the document is to unplug the printer and power-cycle the computer; upon restart of Windows and re-powering the printer, something sometimes prints.

This happens when printing from her "user" user; I've successfully printed from her "administrator" user, although I don't know if that will happen regularly. (All my tests have been from the printer's properties dialog's printer test.) Might this be a permissions issue? But I can't find a way to set permissions for the printer; there is no Security tab (trying from administrator).

I have also tried printing direct to printer instead of spooling: No difference.
