DOCUMENT STUCK IN PRINT QUEUE

My HP OFFICEJET J4580 ALL-IN-ONE printer has document in print queue that I cannot remove.   I've tried "deleting" it and the document shows "deleting" as the status.   I am unable to print anything as long as that document is stuck in the queue.  

 

How do I get this document out?????

 

Note:  This "stuck" document shows USB001 under "PORT" when I look at the document in the queue.   No other documents show anything in the Port info.

Please download and run the Print Diagnostic Utility. It can clear the print jobs for you. Just run it, click on Diagnose, then click on Fix.

Re: DOCUMENT STUCK IN PRINT QUEUE

Hi, I have the same issue of the document being stuck in the printing queue  (all printing jobs are stuck, no exception). I tried uninstalling the printer and the driver software, and reinstalling them, to no avail. Then I downloaded the HP  Print Diagnostic Utility, and tried to run it. However, each time I double clicked the application, it only showing "Extracting xx%..."; when extracting was done, nothing else happens. Everything just sits there... what else can I do to tackle the problem?

 

Thank you for your support in advance.

Re: DOCUMENT STUCK IN PRINT QUEUE

When I do this, it just tells me that it is unable to connect with the selected printer. Duh!! That's why I'm asking for help for crying out loud!!

Hi Joebleau64,

 

Try the Hp Print and Scan Doctor.  It fixes many common printing problems.
