Re: another computer is using the printer. no other computer....help

Well...I had to be a copycat and register just to leave a comment. The process Crested_Grebe suggested absolutely worked! It WORKED! Thank you, it is most greatly appreciated...not to mention I'm now the hero in my house! My son can print his homework after all.

Don't know how you came up w/that solution, but hats off!

Have a Pixima MX922 on Windows 10 x64. Followed instructions. Worked perfectly within 10 seconds! Amazing fix for an irritating problem that won't go away.

Wow, thanks - this is my second Canon printer and I have gotten that error message for years - usually corrects itself but now I know how to do it faster!

Re: another computer is using the printer. no other computer....help

SO can you post a how to for pixma mg5550  having the same rpoblems but don't want to install all drivers again if I don't have to

 

Maybe its worth mentioning that even though system says in use by another computer EVENTUALLY the document prints but this maybe 24 hours later

This worked for me as well, on Windows 10. Stop / Restart the Print Spooler service.

I followed Crested_Grebe's instructions which worked perfectly but only for a single page. I had to reset the spool for each page.   How do I make it last?
