Paper Jam issue with slow print jobs

Q: Paper Jam issue with slow print jobs

I have a HP photo smart B110 series printer, and recently when I send a print job to it that has multiple pages and is quite detailed it always gives a paper jam error.
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.

Can any one shed any light on this issue please?

Preferred Solution: Paper Jam issue with slow print jobs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Paper Jam issue with slow print jobs

Sounds like a hardware issue. Paper moving fast through the printer works fine. Paper moving slow fails.

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?

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!!

Upon opening sealed box from SAM's club and trying to set up, I found a paper jam when i tried to set it up with perforated paper. We don't have perforated paper in our new home so this was a frustration and surprise. I hope that HP will surprise me with compensation of a new black cartridge as this was obviously used before, refurbisheshed and sold as new.Thank you,Kitty1854

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.

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???

Hi there, 
A user is dragging her print jobs to the print queue, and what happens is that only 50% of the print jobs show up, and so only 50% of the print jobs print out. 
This is a problem, because she has to print out 100's of jobs at a time through Adobe pdf. 
Anyone seen this before?

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 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.

I have an HP Deskjet F4480 that if prints more than one document the printer queue backs up and all the prints get stuck. I am then unable to delete the jobs and all prints are stuck in queue status. All new prints are queued behind the stuck print jobs.

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

My batch file for anyone who may find it useful...

How come when I try to cancel a print job it just sits there and says "deleting"? but nothing happens???

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!!

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.

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.

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.

A:Viewing Past Print Jobs

Go here to read about and download "PaperCut Print Logger 1." the author says it logs:
* The time of print,
* the name of the user who printed,
* the total number of pages,
* document names and titles,
* other job attributes such as paper size, color mode and more.

...and it's free.

It won't solve the current problem, but you'll be ready for the next time.

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????

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?

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.

This is related to a (now expired) thread I started earlier this year.

We have an embedded server (embedded in the sense that it's running a propriety OS shell which we cannot add to or modify) for our POS system. When we print reports from it, they go to an attached local printer via USB. The printer is a basic workgroup-class LaserJet with both ethernet and USB interfaces. (Actually, the printer doesn't have built-in USB; we're using a USB-to-Parallel adapter to the printer's parallel port. The server does not require bidirectional communication with the printer.)

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.)

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.

A:HP1200 cue print jobs do not disappear after printing

Go to the printers folder and to file then properties. Under schedule or something similar look to see if there is a check in the keep documents after printing.

Have a SBS 2008 / WIN 7 Pro Domain Client Environment
For some reason One Windows 7 User, when he prints to the office printer which is shared via the SBS, rather than printing it gets paused in the print queue, and he manually has to un-pause it and it prints ok.
All other users on the network printing the exact same way are unaffected. 
I have rebooted his PC - No Change
I have deleted and reconnected the shared printer on his PC same issue.

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.


A:Print Jobs remain in queue although already printed

I'm hoping someone here has some better ideas - I'm pretty tech savvy and this one has me totally defeated.

I have a home business and I use a wide format printer, an HP Deskjet 510c that was working great via a small print server running on a Raspberry Pi until 2 days ago. I was experiencing some lag with a software program that is specific to my business and my husband decided he would be helpful and "fix" it. He has no idea what he did but now I can't print to this printer even when it's directly connected to my PC.

I am not having any issues printing to the other printer, a wireless standard-size laser printer.

Jobs just don't show up in the queue at any paper size other than 8.5 x 11 when the printer only has a 42" roll, not 8.5 x 11 sheets. There seems to be no way to tell it that it contains a roll because when I select the correct paper size from the print dialog box, it simply doesn't put the job in the queue. The printer itself is set up for the roll and knows the roll is there. I can get it to print a test page or a single line of text from notepad, provided I tell it the media size is 8.5 x 11, which it then prints on a 42" x 11" strip of paper without protest.

What we've tried:

1. Uninstalled and reinstalled driver. Printer no longer has drivers on HP's website so apparently husband found one on some 3rd party site (sigh).

2. Updated all relevant software and windows updates

3. Disc... Read more

We are seeing user print jobs pausing themselvies when sent to a printer on a Windows print server. All of our printers are networked. The user just has to resume the print job from within Windows and everything prints out as it should. Can someone
give me an idea of what is going on? ThanksJason
