Whenever your Ricoh printer is stuck on processing then you have to cancel a print job.

Let’s See How to Cancel a Print Job Using Control Panel -

  • First of all, press the printer key. By doing this, the printer screen will appear on the screen.

  • After this, press the Job reset button >Reset the Job or Reset all Jobs button.
  • If you choose Reset the job button then it will cancel all current print jobs that are being processed. If you select the “Reset All Jobs” button then all the jobs that lie in the print queue will get cancelled.

  • To cancel the print jobs, just press the Yes button.

Cancel Print Job From the Operating System -

  • If transferring print jobs is not completed due to any reason then you have to cancel the print job from the computer. For this, double-click on the printer’s icon that is located in the Windows task tray.
  • Now a window will pop up from where you can determine how many print jobs are currently queued for the printing. Before cancelling any print jobs, first, check their current status and then click on Delete.
  • Choose the name of the job that you want to cancel at this moment.
  • After cancelling the print job, go to the Document menu and then click on Cancel.

  • Next, move to the Ricoh printer’s Control Panel and press the printer’s key.

Points to be Noted -

  • If your Ricoh printer is sharing connections with multiple computers then be careful while deleting print jobs as you might delete someone else’s print jobs.
  • If you have connected the Ricoh printer to the computer by using a parallel cable then sent print jobs may be cancelled if you have pressed the “Reset all jobs” button while “Waiting for print data” is on the control panel. Once the interval set in the Printer features has passed, you can easily send the next print job. But if are sending the print job from a different client computer then it will get cancelled.
  • If you are using Windows XP/Vista then click the Cancel button that is available in the document menu.
  • If you are using Windows 2000, then you can open the print job queue window by double-clicking on the Printer icon that is present in the printer wizard (Printers and Faxes) under Windows XP and Windows Server 2003/ 2003 R2.
  • Also, you can’t cancel printing data that is already in processing. Because of this, you can continue printing after pressing the Job reset button.
  • However, a print job that contains a large volume of data takes extra time to stop.
