print don't want to stop ...

I've a problem with print.
I've send to printer a big openoffice document;
but then, during print, I've stopped it manually through printer buttons.

The problem is, now, every time I turn on printer and I try to print something, the printer always printf this openoffice document.

How must I do to delete print spool?

I've used lpq and lprm from console, but the problem persists.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you in advance and excuse me for my english.

It seems that part of the document remains in printer memory. The only solution I know:

Unplug both the power cord and the data cable from the printer. Wait a few seconds, then plug them back in.
