Detect and Repair Stalled or Stuck Print Jobs Causing Paper Jam
We have previously shared with you a free and useful batch file called Print Flush which is able to easily help you cancel a stuck print job. When you have a corrupted or incomplete print job sent by a software, it gets queued and the print job cannot be canceled or deleted from the Printer window. All other print jobs that you sent will be stuck as well and will not print until the first one in the queue has been finished processing. The trick is to stop the printer spooler, delete the files created in the spool folder and restart back the spooler service.
Another portable simple tool to handle stuck print jobs is by using Stalled Printer Repair. This tool doesn’t require installation. It doesn’t needs to run in background to monitor for stuck print jobs. Whenever it happens, just run it and click the Refresh button which will show all the stalled print jobs list. A click of Purge Print Jobs button will fix the stuck print jobs.
Stalled Printer Repair works on Windows NT, 2000, XP, or Vista. We have tested it on Windows 7 32-bit and have no problems getting it to work.
