Problem deleting print job

I am running SCO OpenServer Release 5 and I had a problem with a print job and I cancelled it. The print job still shows under lpstat as cancelled but doesn't go away and now I everything I print to the printer stays in the queue, but doesn't print. I have tried to delete the print job in Xwindows but it says that the request is done and "TO FIX: It is too late to do anything". Does anyone know how to fix this?

the print job might need to be cancelled on the print server itself too ...

Unfortunately, I am not running a separate print server.
