5.4   Clearing Hung Printers

If a printer hangs simply issue the following commands

  1. lpc stop <printer>
  2. lpc start <printer>

This should clear the printer. If that doesn't clear it issue the commands and power cycle the printer (between the stop and start).   The power cycling should cause the printer to reload its settings from the DHCP server.   If that doesn't work then file a ticket.
