HP Deskjet 510 Print Queue not accepting jobs

Q: HP Deskjet 510 Print Queue not accepting jobs

Hi!

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. Disconnected the print server and connected the printer via USB. No change.

I think what I need is some setting buried in the driver to tell it that the media type is a roll of paper instead of sheets, but I haven't been able to find that. Any thoughts? I am dead in the water with clients waiting on products until I can get this resolved.

System specs:
Windows 7 Professional, SP1 64 Bit
Processor: AMD FX-6200 4.08 GHz
RAM: 24 GB
Thanks so much for any help anyone can offer!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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!!

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?

Situation - New Laptop, Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 connected to HP P1102W via existing wireless network. Printer works fine with other computers on network. New Laptop sees the printer and displays the same printer properties and preferences as displayed

Help.  Where do I go from here???

A:Print jobs not going to queue

Like everything else, the request for Print Test Page did
not go to the queue
You now need to open a second window that shows the printer's queue at the very moment when you click the
Print Test Page butten. Can you see anything flashing past? Attaching a picture (using snippingtool.exe) would help.
You should also carry out these tests:

Turn off the printer.Print a test page (as shown above).Check the folder C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS. Can you see any files in there?Open the Event Viewer eventvwr.exe and examine the System branch for error messages with the current date stamp.Temporarily connect the printer to your PC with a USB cable, then print some test sheet.

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???

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

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.

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.

I believe that's what I do at times (i don't print often and don't really remember).

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.

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.

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.

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!

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. On the Vista machine there is the option to "render print jobs on client machine" for the shared printer. When enabled, the Windows 7 machine will still NOT print.

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"

Reinstall the HP drivers -- make sure you are in a Windows account with Admin privileges when you do; do not connect the computer to the HP until the HP setup wizard prompts you to do so

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.

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.

The company that I work for is "going green" and individual employees would like to know how many pages they print on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

These employees all print to a networked printer, but instead of getting a cumulative count of how many pages a department prints, each employee wants to know how many pages he/she prints.
Has anyone ever had to configure something like this?

I have seen this. But it is not computer related. It was part of the printer. Each user has to enter their personal code in order to print pages, and then the printer keeps track of the numbers.

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!!

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...

[codebox]CLS
@echo off
echo This program restarts the print spoooler service and clears broken print jobs
echo Jason Bell 2007
echo .
echo Please wait for approx 10 seconds...
NET STOP SPOOLER

You could try running the Spooler Cleaner (Cleanspl.exe), which is part of the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools (it will work with XP).

Dear All,

We are using Konica Minaltova MFS Printers. There are 5 printers installed in our office. We find that there are lots of unnecessary print jobs done by the users. I am looking for a solution to control unnecessary print jobs.

Pleas suggest me if there is any hardware and software solution.

Thanks

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.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer and am still having the same problem? I have now turned off the spoil feature on the printer, but not being able to queue my documents is costing me time.

Does anyone know the problem I am having and how to fix it?

Thanks!

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.
· The desktop has shared this printer with network. Network settings:
o Turn on network discovery
o Turn on file and printer sharing
o Share public folders
o Media streaming is on
o 128-bit encryption
o Turned OFF password protected sharing
o Allow windows to manage Homegroup connections


· Have downloaded latest HP software and drivers for win 7 on both win 7 computers. Both computers have the HP printer set up as default.
· Laptop 1, when a file is sent to printer, a message states the document was sent to the printer. As stated above, the job shows up briefly in the desktop print queue (first spooling, then printing) but the job never reaches the printer (evaporates into electronic ‘la-la’ land).

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
 

A:scheduling print jobs

In office, you go to drop down menu "file", "print", "properties", "advanced", print job type choose "delay", it will throw up a clock, and you can enter the time you want your stuff to print out.

I recently changed my printer and installed an HP1510. This printer is installed with my wife's computer as the host and my computer sharing on the network. It all worked for several docs then docs sent from my computer started to disappear. Sometimes there is an indication that the doc has been sent to the printer,other times nothing. The system worked ok with the previous printer an HP 2200. The printer works ok with the host computer. This seems to have been a problem some time ago but I haven't been able to find any recent complaints so I am wondering if it was finally sorted out. I have tried the recomendations from windows and the forums without success,including removing windows updates back to the time the printer was printing ok. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer itself?
Do you get spool errors? Or could you provide us with the error details.

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 and Help!!!

Everytime I try to cancel a print job on HP desjet 932c printer here is what happens:

1. It takes forever for the document to show up on the que, when it does, it says deleting, but then really doesn't delete.
2. My printer just spews out pages and pages (like 50) of one line symbols.
3. Turning the printer off doesn't help, I have to let it run it's cycle before I can do any more printing.
4. This seems to have started happening since I installed the new HP driver for XP. It may be an HP software problem, but hey try getting help from them.
5. My driver name is HP DeskJet 930c/932c/935c. Version 5.0
6. For about a year I have just not cancelled print jobs, but today I fogot and spent an hour wasting paper and time...argh!

Can anyone help me with this problem? Would really like to be able to cancel, pause or anything my print jobs.

Thx,
Nancy

Surf over to HP's website and download the latest driver - it says its rev 4.3. Uninstall the old, install the new one. Post your results. You could also try the driver the XP has for the 632c.

I have a pc that prints to one of the network printers and it works fine. However the job stays in the spooler even after it prints. What would cause the job to stay in the spooler? What are some things I can check to see why this is happening?

These are HP LaserJet 2430's and the pc is Windows XP Pro. Other people print to the printer and their jobs leave the spooler just fine.

Thanks in advance,

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?
