Can't print from my computer.

When I got your fix for my problem. The fix worked and I was able to print from my computer. Today when I wanted to print from my computer I found that it had switched back to HP5600 Fax. So again I selected HP 5600 series, but it won't print. Before I bought this printer I had purchase an Epson. But I got such a run around for their servce department, that I put it in the closet and went out and bought an HP. I have always had HP and it always worked well. But now I am having my doubts about HP. I am about ready to box it up and take it back to Sam's Club. I hope you can help me.

I can understand your frustration, but do not panic.
First Go to Start> Control panel> Printers and faxes> And in the HP 5600 series check to see what the icon say...? (Does it say 0Ready or does it have and jobs in Que)
Right click on the icon and left click on Cancel all documents ( until it says 0Ready)
Make sure the HP 5600 series is set as a default printer.
Then go to Start> Run> under run type in services.msc and hit Ok and in the services window locate for print spooler and under service status you should see a tab which says stop highlighted click on the same (a window will pop up and close), now you will see start highlighted click start and you will see the same window pop up and close,
Now stop should be highlighted, click on Apply or Ok and restart your computer.
Then after restarting your PC go to Start> Control panel> Printer and faxes> and check where the check mark is in and the default printer should say 0Ready.
No right click on the default icon and left click on properties. and under properties to the bottom you will see a tab which says print test page.
Click on it and see if it prints a test page.
And then if it prints try printing from any application.

Good Luck

I printed all the pages I wanted and stopped the printing. today I want to print something else and it wants to prin about 30 pages I don't want, help



Print spooler service is a computer service that loads the print jobs into the printer memory for later printing and it acts as intermediary between a computer and a printer. When the print spooler service is stopped or malfunction, printing is not possible.

Here are the possible reasons :

1. Virus or Malware infection.

2. Spooler service was stop by accident or turn off to manual/disable mode.

3.Faulty installed printer driver that contains error or incompatible with previous printer drivers installed in your computer or system.

4. Print jobs and drawing jobs were corrupted by accident which caused print que lock and resulting print spooler service to crash.

5. Your printer had printing problem issue with pdf files.

To fix this problem, you have to check if the print spooler service had stop.

Here's how to check and fix the print spooler service.

Choose RUN
Click on PRINT SPOOLER and check if the STATUS IS STARTED
If not, on the upper left side, click on STOP to stop the spooler service
Then click on RESTART to restart the spooler
Restart your printer and your computer

Scanner and coping not working.

Not too long ago I had the very same problem. After TWO days with Kodak support over the phone they had to send me a new printer. It has to do with the printer that only they can repair. Reinstalling software will not fix the problem, at least in my case. Hope it works out.
