Cannot Cancel Print Job

Discussion in 'Microsoft Certification' started by =?Utf-8?B?Y21jbm9ydG9u?=, Jul 17, 2005.

  1. I have a print job pending for my HP OfficeJet 5500 that I cannot cancel. I
    am running XP and have tried cancel print and the status shows deleting but
    it never goes away and I cannot print any other jobs. However I can create
    new print jobs and cancel them just not the initial one in the que. I have
    tried rebooting the system and powering on and off the printer. Does anyone
    have a suggestion on how I can clear this buffer?

    You have to stop and restart the printspooler service.
    (And if someone has an alternative, I'd be happy :)

    print job won't cancel

    I was unable to stop the printer from printing material I didn't want it to print. Cure: turn off printer, turn off computer, turn on printer and then turn on computer. Worked for me.
