How do I delete a stopped print job? I have an Epson 1400 on OSX 10.4.10.

I can't print anything without finishing the old job that I don't want. Going into printer setup utility, view jobs, highlight and delete, it disappears from that window but it's not gone. If I close and reopen printer setup utility, the old job is back again and I still can't print.

When the printer driver goes a bit gaga, what I do is go in the System Preferences: I select in the list the printer that's acting up with the deleted jobs, click on the minus (-) button in the Print & Fax pane, Printing tab to take it off of the list.

Then I click on the plus button, select the driver to reload it again. That usually gets rid of the clog...

Sometimes when I delete or stop a job that's in the Print Queue, it prevents other jobs to print. There might be members that have better ideas though but that's what I do.
