  1. Hey everyone,

    I currently have a issue with deleting a printing job from the printer queue and therefore it will not let me unistall the printer.

    Im using a MacBook Pro with a Lexmark 3500-4500 Series Printer. When I click on the printer queue it shows up:

    1 Job
    Status: On Hold
    Name: Untitled
    User: Admin
    When: 17/06/10 3:18PM
    Completed: 17/06/10 3:19PM

    Im unable to click the delete button (remove from printer jobs) or anything else.

    I want to uninstall the printer and re-install it (my scanner is have issues) but I'm unable to do so because it has a printer job in queue and will not let me.

    Does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem?
    thanks

    Try to find a driver cleaner program for your MAC Book and see if you can delete the corrupted printer driver that way
