You need to restart your PRINT SPOOLER to restablish communication between your printer and computer. Here's how:

1. Start
2. Run
3. Type: services.msc
4. Scroll down and find PRINT SPOOLER
5. Right-click on it and choose RESTART

This will clear out the eight jobs in your queue and fix the problem. Try printing one job to see if that works. Make sure that you choose a small job <1MB. Good luck!!

So far answers don&#39;t coincide with the directions I've been given, which is "Press the WSB Button for 5 seconds."

The print queue is what is locked up. Try deleting the items in the print queue.
Start by pausing the print queue. Then delete the items in the queue one by one.
When you have the last print job in the queue it will probably be jammed up in the transition between the computer and printer. Switch off the printer. This should cause the printer on the computer to become offline.
Try deleting this job abain. If it dissapears then turn the printer back on making sure the computer understands the printer is back online. Then try printing again.
If it does not dissapear then you will need to restart the computer to free up this job. When the computer is back up and running check the print queue again. If the job is gone then turn the printer back on and try printing again. If it is not gone then try once again to delete the print job and it should dissapear this time.
Once the job is gone and the print queue is empty turn the printer back on and make sure the computer understands it is back online again.

49.4C06 Service Error

This is a printer queue error. Go into your printer icon and select properties. You will see an item "check what's printing" click on this and it will take you to the print queue. Highlight each item and right click and delete.

The print spooler service is not running iam using MP830 printer

There are a few different causes for this. All of them leading to the "spooler" service to stop running.

The most common remedy is to just reboot the computer. If this fails, there may be a corrupted document in the spool queue that is crashing the service repeatedly here are the steps to clear it out:

For Windows XP (your computer says "start" in the bottom left)
1. Go to the "Start" menu and click "run"
2. in the window that comes up enter "net start spooler"
3. Try printing again.
4. If the problem continues then:
5. Click "start" and "Run" again.
6. enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS" and click ok and delete any items in there.
7. Close that window.
8. Restart the computer.
You should now be able to print.

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:
1. Click the blue "Start" orb
2. In the search box enter "command"
3. The computer will return with several items
4. Right click on the black item that says "command prompt"
5. click "run as administrator"
6. in the black window type "net start spooler" and press enter
7. try printing again, if it fails continue to step 8
8. open the blue start orb
9. in the search box enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS"
9.5. If you get a permissions message click continue
10. delete all items from there.
11. back in the black command prompt box, type "net start spooler" again
12. You should be able to print.

If you still cannot print, you may have one or more corrupted print drivers. In this case you will need to delete and re-install your printers from the computer using instructions from the manufacturer.

I have connected d145 printer to my new dell laptop with Windows 7 but although installed as default printer it won't print

Do you have files in the queue? What is the printer status in Devices and Printers area?

Since this is a USB printer, my usual trouble-shooting starts with checking the USB connectivity. If you are using a hub, try connecting directly to the printer. Change to a new USB cable and try a different port. Check if a known working device will work in the port. Make sure the ports are not disabled for power-savings or security (power savings is adjusted as an advanced option in the same area as setting the Screen Saver, Security shut downs are in the Device Manager).

Frequently, you can reset the printer by unplugging the USB cable from both the computer and the printer and pulling the power cord for a minute. If the items in the print queue cannot be deleted from the queue, use the Command Prompt (run as administrator by a right click - Start, All Programs, Accessories) to empty the queue. Once in the command prompt, type "net stop spooler" without the quotes and then hit <enter>. Then type "net start spooler" (again without the quotes) and hit <enter>. Once the commands have been processed, reboot the computer.

I hope this helps.

My new printer suddenly stopped making a connection between the printer and the item to be printed.  Printer says "Printer Ready" but does not show the item to be printed in the queue.  Cedar

disconnect printer from computer
cancel documents in queue
if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons.
reboot & reconnect printer (swap cables if not detected)

I had problem with dymo, so we printed receipt thru other printer and now got dymo fixed, so i tried to print, but it's not printing, i looked in printer que, there's some printing items that i cann't get...


right click the items in print queue and delete them. You have to wait a few secs before the print queue is clear. You can also try to reprint the same thing by right clicking the item in print queue.

Printer disappeared!!!

OK. You can calm down. This is quite fixable although your document in the queque is probably gone. I hope you saved before printing.

I need to confirm you printer model as our selection list is not always that accurate to the actual printer you have.

Look at the back of the printer near the power line cord. Note the model name and the model number. Take note that I may be off as to where your model plate is located but Epson usually keeps this in the same location.

Thanks. Once you have posted this back I'll get the links to your drivers. You will have to uninstall your printer using the Add/Remove in Control Panel first, unplug the USB cable and then you'll be ready to install the drivers again. OK?

Job in queue

Let me exaplin the cause why the jobs get stuck in queue: When ever we try to print there is a windows service called print spooler that manages the print jobs in queue. We can clear the jobs in queue by just disconnecting the usb cable and restarting the print spooler service. Here are the steps to restart the print spooler : 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3.In the Run box type " net stop spooler " Then press enter Note: Type the text with out inverted cotes in the run box this will stop the print spooler service Next we have to restart the print spooler 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3In the Run box type " net start spooler " and press enter Once done reconnect the usb cable and check for the jobs in queue. If there are no jobs in queue you can set the print directly settings to avoid this issue in future. Just open the printer and faxes folder and right click on the printer icon and select properties and then click on the advance tab and under it select the option print directly to printer and click on apply and Ok to save the settings. Once done try to print this should resolve the issue.. Wish u success..
