Print Queues failing to clear

By d.ferguson ·
We are running an NT 4.0 server and are having problems with our print queues. it started with Apple 8500 print queues but occasionally affects Hp 4050 q's.

The print job will reach the print queue and sometime print but not clear, sometimes not print, just sit there, and other times look like it is going to print (Flashing light on Printer) but nothing happens. we then get a timeout error message...i ahve adjusted the timeout values both to increase and decrease, but this seems to have no effect.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Darren

All of the above answers are good you decide how to share the points out but don't forget that when you change the name of the printer that most don't like spaces use underscores if you need spaces and stopping the spooler service will work but you may have to go to the spooler directory and delete the old print jobs to clearit completely (I have a shortcut on the desktop because this happens often). And don't forget to teach your users not to reboot, shut down or anytyhing else until their work is printed (I work in a college this happens often to me)
