Cancelling Printing

For users of Windows Me, 98, and 95
For users of Windows 2000 and XP
For Macintosh users

If you encounter problems while printing, you may need to cancel printing. To cancel printing, follow the instructions in the appropriate section below.

For users of Windows Me, 98, and 95

It is possible to cancel printing using either the Progress Meter or EPSON Spool Manager. Refer to the appropriate section below.

Using the Progress Meter

When you send a print job to the printer, the Progress Meter appears on your computer screen.

Click Stop to cancel printing.

Using EPSON Spool Manager

EPSON Spool Manager is similar to Windows Print Manager. If it receives two or more print jobs at one time, it holds them in the order that they were received (with printers on a network this may be called a print queue). When a print job reaches the top of the line, the EPSON Spool Manager sends the job to the printer. From the Spool Manager, you can cancel print jobs. You can also view print status information about the print jobs which have been sent to your printer, as well as pause and resume selected print jobs.

After you send a print job, an EPSON Stylus C62 Series button appears on the taskbar. Click this button to open the EPSON Spool Manager.

To cancel a print job, select the job in the list, then click Cancel.
