Second problem first, if a couple of head cleaning cycles does not fix the
problem then e-mail Arthur Entlich at e-printerhelp(at)mvps(dot)org replacing
the brackets with the usual bits, he will willingly provide you with free
assistance, be patient he is a bsuy man, and describe the symptoms exactly to
him with model number etc.
First problem, are you running Windows XP or 98? Windows 98 is very reluctant
to flush the print queue, sometimes a reboot is necessary. Windows XP is better
but can still take an age, again I usually resort to cancelling the print,
wait, wait and then reboot!
