printed job remain in queue

Q: printed job remain in queue

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.

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.

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,

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 doesnít 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.

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

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?

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, ďThe record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?Ē

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

This is something that has been bugging me for a while now, and I've been unable to solve this problem. Perhaps someone out there can provide some guidance.

Sometimes, I'm unable to print things (such as online coupons) because I'm told that my printer is set to "Keep Printed Documents." I've tried disabling this setting via the Advanced tab under the printer's properties. However, when I do this, click Apply then OK, and close the tab, the setting automatically reverts back to "Keep Printed Documents". Does anyone know why this is happening? It's sort of frustrating to not be able to set the printer settings the way you choose.

I appreciate any tips/suggestions you might have. Thanks!

I send about 100 faxes, one day a month..I was once able to create the document in Word, 'send to' 'fax recipient', and put as many names from my Office Outlook address book into the send to line as I chose, and Fax would just dial them in order.

I now try to insert say 10 recipients--and the fax doesn't start sending..I check the outbox, and two or three of the recipients are queued (never the first recipient I inserted), and the fax will sit happily for five or ten minutes, then start sending to those in the queue.

If I start over with just one recipient, when I hit finish, the fax starts sending--the faxes waiting in the queue first, as if the new one kicked the others awake.

I uninstalled Norton Internet Security, and that worked...for one fax, then back to the same.

Any suggestions?

>>Edit: A fax to a single recipient works like a champ--two recipients, about half the time----three or more, doesn't work.

Other than dogging the print preview, and struggling with the size in any pertinent image editing software, has anyone found a reliable way to limit or control the size of a printed web document?
to wit:
I scanned an odd shaped document, 3x8" to email to myself at another site, and the printed form was big enough for two pages. What a waste.
I print receipts regularly and they, 99% of the time have a "trailer" on a last page that has stuff like web site address or URL, a Secure Website emblem, or other, clearly unnecessary printing. My introduction to Windows word processing (WordPerfect) had, and I still use, a "makeitfit" command. Invoking such a command AUTOMATICALLY when printing from the web seems like a simple, brainless way to conserve'll give me a fractional font (e.g. 11.9 vs. a 12) and would prevent the idiotic tendency of a printed page to only have the leftward 80%, l which leaves off the important stuff like the prices...(you gotta print landscape to avoid this)
And I thought a computer was to make life easier, boy was I ever misled)

A:printed size of web documents

The problem is that web pages are usually coded to make them look good on screen, and that tends to make them "unfriendly" when printing.

Web pages designed for printing do exist, and it works well in those (few) cases.

Cutting and pasting into a word processor is sometimes the only workable solution.

Don't print much multi page output, so am NOT sure when this problem began.

Originally, the pages on my HP DJ855C were printed as expected: page-1 first, then page-2, etc; this resulted with page-1 being on the bottom of the stack. Depending on the application being used, there was often a Print-Order option available for Back-to-Front printing so that the last page would be printed first and then page-1 would be printed last and be on the top in the stacker.

NOW, things seem to have reversed:
If I do NOT ask for the Back-to-Front, then I seem to get it anyway (i.e., page-1 last and on the top). but if I want the original order (i.e., page-1 first and on the bottom) then I must use the Back-to-Front option.
It seems as though the default has become Back-to-Front and then selecting the option for Back-to-Front re-reverses the order and the result is Front-to-Back.

Possibly this reversal happened when I went to Win/XP; possibly it happened with the installation of some piece of software.

Q. Has anyone else had this exxperience?

Please tell me where I might change some parameter to make the option of Front-to-Back actually print the page-1 first like it did originally?

Any advice apprecaited.


A:Order of Pages Printed


Go into your printers and faxes options off of your start menu.

Select your printer, right click the mouse and click on printing preferences.
On the features tab at the bottom there is a option for start printing from last page. If there is a check mark in the box next to it, click there with the mouse and uncheck it and then click on apply and ok and you should be all set after that?

I can print pictures from other software on my computer, from the internet, etc, with great photo quality. When I print from Windows photo gallery they are very light and faded looking. I have made sure the adjustments are for my printer.

It seems that most of the people experiencing this problem had canon printers. Does anyone have a solution to this?

I have found the solution to this problem, you need to untick the checkbox for "borderless printing", this is how to do it:


When you click print, go to Options > Printer Properties

Click on the "Page Setup" tab, then Untick the box that says "Borderless Printing"

The problem I am having is that when I go to print tax return forms from the IRS site or New York Tax Dept site, the form prints "short", that is, the last four or five lines of each page do not print.

You cannot save the data in these forms, they will only save as a blank form. Your only option is to print it.

However, although Adobe tells how to cure this problem ( by clicking File-Print and going down the menu which comes up to "printer scaling", then chosing "print to fit page", this only works if there is a
FILE menu on the left hand side of the page.

In these tax sites, the forms do not have a tool bar above allowing you to chose a FILE menu.
You can right click the mouse and chose PRINT, however it will print a cut off page.

SOOOOOOO do I either:
1. Get a standard Tool Bar to appear on top of the form, on these web site pages, or
2. use some other device or method to print these documents to fit the page.

If any of you are about to suggest right clicking on the printer icon PRINTERS, in the control panel, forget printer does not bring up anything about "Print Scaling".

Hopefully, some geek out there will read this and solve my problem. Thank you. 44 Guy

A:printed pages cut off at bottom

Every computerized tax form that I have available at the website of the sponsoring governmental agency...and reflects a printed version option which has resulted in everything being printed properly.

I'm not sure where Adobe figures into tax preparation.

If you are using a 3d-party app to do taxes...then the problem resides with the support for that application, IMO.

I have had my problem for some time and had a work around which is no longer applicable hence I get a white screen where message should be so I don't know what is being said.

My problem started about 6 or 8 months ago on Outlook Express. At that time I was using dial up and changed over to with their e mail program Total Access. My problem immediately disappeared. One month ago I switched over to High Speed and the person doing the custom install saw I used Outlook Express so he reenergized (non computer word) the program. The custom installer saw my INBOX with about 30+ messages that go back a long way. EACH ONE LINE description was complete, meaning To: xxx,
From: YYY, Subject: ZZZ, and anything else that showns on the ONE LINE.

When I double click on one of the inbox messages I FIND MY PROBLEM! Everything that showed before is shown again, but now greyed out since it has to do with basics. HOWEVER, the text area (where the message should be) is 100% pure white. I have double clicked all 30+ messages and get the same thing,...a pure white screen.

On clicking command button, i enter the record number to be printed and it previews the report and check for accuracy of data entered. Once checked, i click on the print icon to print the same.

My question is, is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now is already printed before? A kind of record keeping of the printed records. Also, the same method shall help me to find out how many times each record is printed?

Hope someone can help me

I doubt that I can post this question here but I assume it'll be removed if not.

I have an HP printer, 2540, wireless printer. Works fine.

I started to print a pdf file. Because it was a large file I choose the 'booklet' option, which prints 4 pages on one side, then, when everything of the even numbers (I think, not sure) has printed, you will get a message on the pc telling you how to replace the already printed pages in the printer so it can print on the backsides.

When I saw the first batch I decided I didn't like it. So when the message with instructions on how to replace the already printed paper, I went in the printer's menu, highlighted the name of the document and did 'cancel'. In this printer menu it now said it was 'deleting' the document. But it didn't. I waited about half an hour. I turned the printer off and back on. I closed the document. But still the printer menu said 'deleting'.

I opened the document up again, changed the settings for the printer (as in one sided, normal size) and accidentally hit 'print'. I then noticed that - in the printer menu - the 'new' document showed up above the one that still said it was deleting. But it still didn't print. I went in the print menu again and highlighted the new document and did 'cancel' and it did cancel it.

But the old document is still sitting there, 'deleting'. I can not get past that. Any suggestions wo... Read more

A:Cannot delete partly printed document from cue

There's a way to force these to delete, if you don't mind a little typing. You need to open a command prompt by running cmd.exe. If you're unsure of how to do that, tell me which operating system you're using and I can walk you through that. This should open up a black window, and you need to type in the following commands sequentially, hitting the Enter key after each command.
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\* /q /f /s

net start spooler
The first command stops the printing service, allowing you to carry out the second command, which deletes any jobs in the queue. The last command re-starts the printing service, and you can try running a test print. Once that's all done, you can just close the black window.

I have a problem with my Word documents. When I try to print them, the right edge is cut off. I thought it was my computer or my printer, so I took it to another computer, and the same thing happened.

The problem is in the files themselves. How do I change the files so they function as they used to? This has been the case with more than 20 files, which were made at different times.

My computer used to warn that the form I was using was too wide, and ask did I want to go ahead. I would select yes, it would print, and would look just fine. Now it does not ask that question.

Incidentally, another problem is that my files no longer end with .doc, but now say .rtf. All of my Word files changed in several ways at once.

Problem: Green Cast on Images being printed
Editor - Elements Version 7 & Windows default viewer
Printer R285
Colour Management:- every variation tried

My Neighbour has a Epsom R285 printer, his had it a few years.
I have recently changed his PC to a Windows 7 desktop and installed all the drivers. The Printer worked fine, but yesterday he was getting a green colour cast on all images
I checked the head alignment, nozzle set-up and cleaned the heads
Checked with windows default viewer, and printing from that application - same problem
Checked all the Colour Management, ICC, settings etc - tried without Management, sRGB, adobe 1998 etc, checked colour management on printer and elements

The image looks fine on the screen , I have emailed a sample image and on my setup it prints fine

The next step was to try the printer on my laptop
any other ideas - this is usually a colour management issue and i have fixed quite quickly in the past on other systems - so I suspect I'm missing something obvious now

Open a Word document of the desired size and import it there. You can also draw a box on the Word document and put it into there - it will fit. If you don't have Word, try Paint.

A:Printer deletes documents before they are printed

G'day steviejay, sounds like you have an intelligent printer that is censoring your output!
That is a worry, I haven't seen that problem previously.
You might try having a look in your control panel, system, devices or device manager, with a bit of luck when you scroll down through all your devices you will find a USB printer, (assuming yours is usb) if you open that item you should see something like "this devise is working properly" which is a good start for troubleshooting.
There should be no yellow exclamation marks on this item.
Are you quite sure your print queue in the print manager is being actually deleted?
What kind of printer is it?
The assumption is that it is a PC using a windows variant.
Cheers, qldit.

I've spent the last four hours trying to solve this/use info that's similar to my problem to no avail. I feel I'm so close I can smell the answer is near!

I have a form I use for work that I manually have to fill in 50 times a day with mostly the same information. This is definitely a job for a computer!

Ideally, I would like to open the spreadsheet and have a button that says 'Print' and it will print what I need - 50 forms with the right information.

So far I have done the following:

Created a custom page size (16cm x 14.7cm)
Scanned an original to use as a background so I can line up the information
Adjusted the Excel boxes to print the info in the right place.

Now I need to print the following number ranges as identifiers:

1 - 22, 29-42 and 51-54

I feel I'm close with using this macro:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
[copy] = [copy] + 1
End Sub

I use both Excel 2003 and 2007, depending on where I am!

I have NO experience of macros until today, so any advice is very welcome.

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.

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!

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.

I can not figure out what is wrong. When I turn off my computer in the evening and re-start the next day, the printer automatically adds the documents I printed from before turning the computer off, and places them again in the print queue and re-prints them. I know how to delete items from a queue, but that is a temporary fix. This happens everytime the computer re-boots. Sometimes, the startup screen is not even open before I can get to the print queue to delete those documents. I have tried everything including un-installing and re-installing print driver, turning printer on and off, going thru settings, running a windows error scan. I can't find anything that is "checked" that would be causing this. The bi-directional printing option is turned off as well.

I was just trying to print a chapter from a book online. For some reason, there was a problem. And when I then clicked on my printer icon, it just said under the status, there was an error. Right at the moment, it says "Deleting - Error - Paused- Printing". See, when I was trying to get it to go away, I think I pressed Pause. And pressed Cancel. But nothing has stopped there. I later tried printing a letter. But an hour later, that letter is the second item in the list, and no activity has occurred. The above seems a mess, right?

"Error" is not what you call explanatory. I tried to check through Windows Help. But it didn't advise me anywhere where you'd check for a proper description of an error. I know computers are capable of it.

So, all I see in the printer window to try is cancel. And has no effect now.

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?

A:Paging & Disk queue

Hello Fritz,

I would recommend that you update your RAM and increase it to at least 2 GB instead of 512 MB (1/2 GB). You would see a nice increase in performance afterwards.

I have a network laser printer attached, i sent 2 documents to the printer, the first one printed fine, the second didn't print but was on the print queue as "printing....".
I gave it 5 minutes then tried to cancel the print to start again - the status changed to "deleting...".
15 minutes later it still hadn't gone and nothing else would print.
I have seen this problem time again in Vista & XP before it, but i can't believe it is still there. †Is there some magic way of clearing the print queue other than restarting my computer?

I have HP Laptop dv9000, with Windows Vista and HP Printer, Photosmart C7200 series.  I cannot cancel the print queue and therefor printer will not print in normal or test mode.. I have had the computer for over four years without this problem. Any Ideas?

A:Cannot cancel print in queue

Hi, From the Control Panel, open Administrative Tools and select Sevices.  Browse down to the print spooler service, right click it and select Properties then click on the Stop button.  Now browse to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS and delete the job inside this folder - You may need to click a prompt to gain the appropriate authority to open the PRINTERS folder. Restart the computer and you should find the document(s) have been removed. Regards, DP-K

I had a PDF Creator on my machine, it worked well until it died. I could not find the same one so I downloaded another one. It works well. But my print queue keeps telling me I have three documents waiting to print, but they are for the PDF Creator that does not exist. I can't delete the print queue because the PDF Creator does not exist.

Thats ridiculous, but how do I escape?

XP Home with SP3.

A:Cannot delete print queue!

I would start by killing the print spooler service at first then restarting it to try and clear the queue Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Right click Print Spooler > Stop Process > Right click and start process again. If that doesn't work then look through your Add/Remove Programs list and make sure PDF Creator is completely uninstalled, if not, remove it completely. If it is still acting up try to remove the PDF Creator printer port. Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > File > Server Properties > delete port for PDF Creator. By doing this you may need to reinstall whatever application your using for PDF's.

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.

How can I solve the problem?

Option 2 of this tutorial tell you how to manipulate the print spooler queue - but instead of deleting the entries you could try to copy them. Then you can reset them at a later time.

I was trying to help someone who could not print. The print queue was present and could not be cleared with the usual cancel operations or by uninstalling and reinstalling the printer software.

Any ideas? Do we need to do a repair install of Windows? Could the spooler service be defective?

TIA for any help.

When I print anything off a web page I almost need a microscope to read the print. This is a sudden development - although I haven't installed anything new or made any changes recently.
I can increase the font size on the screen OK, but whatever I print is still the same tiny sized printout on paper.
Appreciate some help and advice as to how to make my printout readable
Thanks !

I have a cannon mp210 all in one printer,scanner. When placing actual photos into the machine to be scanned then printed they come out perfectly fine but when I try to print pictures already imported onto my computer they come out very faint/light. The computer keeps saying the ink levels are low which is incorrect as I have just put in new ones. I beleive this is a issue to do with the colour settings installed on windows 7 as our pictures print out fine when the printer is connected to our lap top. If anyone could help me with changing the colour settings that would be great. Thank you

Have you made adjustments to the paper type and print quality?

Greetings, I just purchased an Epson 4490 photo scanner and realized there is no printed user manual- just a very basic bunch of directions. They have an in depth guide on the Epson website but it is not an easy one to download and copy, and I find it very difficult to look online whenever I have a question about using this scanner.
I am wondering if there is anyplace I can get the in-depth printed user guide for this scanner. Printed guides are so much easier for some of us to use. If I had known there was no user guide I would never have purchased this scanner.I am hoping that someone other than Epson might print them,since Epson says they have no printed user guide. Thank you!!

A:Can I get printed user guide for Epson 4490?

I doubt you would find a printed version available if epson doesn't have it.
The online manuals are usually in PDF format and you can save them
to your computer so you don't have to download it every time.
Just download and open it,then click file/save as and save it to your desktop.
Of course,after that,if you want to waste the ink,you can always print it out yourself.
