Have Z2420 printer appears it's talking with PC says it's printing gives printing status as 20% complete but nothing prints s


It could be due to the print spooler service on your computer. Please follow the steps below on how to clear the print queue and enable the print spooler service.

  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)
Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Type the letter "cmd"
Type the word "net stop spooler"
Exit
Go to C drive
Choose to Windows Folder
Click show content
Choose system32 folder
Choose spool folder
Choose printer
And delete all printing jobs pending
Again go back to CMD window and type the word "net start spooler"
Restart your computer also turn off your printer and switch it on.
It will work fine right now

Hi there,
Print spooler not running is not the printer error, it happens when the print spooler service starts working in windows, For making it enable you dont have to reinstall the drivers for the printer, as print spooler service is for every printer, even if you put another printer the result will be the same
To Enable Print Spooler Open Control Panel
Go to administrative Tools>Services (For Windows XP Users)
Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools( for windows 7 users)
Open Services Find Print Spooler in the list
Right click the service and make it stop, if its already stop set it to Start and then again give prints
Double click on the service and set "Startup type to AUTOMATIC". You should now be able to get prints from your printer
Now restart your desktop/laptop and check if the service is still working by giving any test print.
Hope it will solve your issue
If you require more assistance, regarding this topic feel free to reply

The print spooler service is not running.


Reinstall the printer drivers will shore it up quickly the spooler has to do with the printer so do that and you should be fine.
