Solved how to get rid of port in use message in canon 5750

Specs: Windows 10
Cannot successfully delete printer queue - keep getting "port in use" and it refuses to print. Although I cancel the document to be printed and turn printer off and then on, it still won't print.

I have come across this many times. What I do is:
1- delete all print jobs (one or more are stuck or continue to say 'deleting')
2- unplug the printer (not just turn off). Press the power button while unplugged.
3- Restart the computer, while it is restarting, plug the printer in and turn it on.
When both are up and running the stuck print jobs will be gone.

You can stop the print spooler while the printer is unplugged and restart the print spooler while the printer is booting up but I find the above simpler in most cases and reliable.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

✔ Best Answer
RE #2 option 2 would be:

cmd.exe commands would be:

NET stop spooler
NET start spooler

or

open services.msc
look for print spooler
right click --> restart

Fingers option 1 seems like it has a higher succes rate the first time ;)
