How to Flush Buffer Cache on HP 810c Printer After Cancelling Print Job

Does anyone know how to explicitly flush or clear the printer cache for the HP Deskjet 810c printer?

I am looking for something more than just "Cancelling" the print jobs in printer properties.  This shows "Deleting" but the printer still receives the data stream.  I want to clear that data stream.

I have tried removing the parallel port cable while printing.  This did not work.  
Also, when I pull the paper from the tray, the second light will blink orange.  I then cycle power and repeat a couple times.  Sometimes this will work, but not always.  

Any other ideas?  Thanks.

If you're running Win NT, 2k, 2k3 or XP you should try to restart the spooler service.
This can be done by typing thoses commands in a command prompt :

NET STOP SPOOLER

then

NET START SPOOLER

While Will's comments solves the issue, Lantin's comment adds simplicity to it's implementation.  I will award points to both in this case.  Thank you for your input.
