If you are having problem with your printer, do the following:

Check all connections first (if necesary replace the cables)

Be sure the printer is ON

Go to Printers Folder (Start >> Control Panel >> Printers) And be sure your printer status is marked as "READY"

Go to printer folder and Cancel all pending printer documents (queue)

Turn off your printer
Turn off your computer

Turn on both and try again

How to give test print through command prompt in windows-10.


you can print a test page from the command prompt using this command:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /k /n “\\atl-ps-01\color-printer”

If you wanted to, you could wrap this command up in a VBScript and execute the test page from there. For more information about running command line tools from within a script take a gander at this classic Tales from the Script column (it’s actually the first Tales ever written

Cannot print from command prompt - Epson U220D Windows 7 32-bit New parallel port with driver New centronix to parallel cable Epson driver APD_455dE (I was using Windows 7 64 bit with a...


The Epson works fairly well with XP. It is to be connected to
a parallel port, usually LPT1
using an IEEE certified parallel printer cable. The computer BIOS
setting is best set for standard parallel port, SPP, bi-directional port
or similar. If possible, do not set it to ECP or EPP or ECP & EPP.

The only native driver for the printer is on the Windows CP CD. Install
using the Add Printer wizard.

The Epson LQ-860 drivers, and a few others, can be used. Using these
drivers, you will discover that the printer actually has some resident
fonts (in printer ROM) that are not accessible from the Stylus
driver. However, with this driver, graphics printing quality is
compromised.

Windows 9x drivers _cannot be used_.

Let us know.

Hi

Maybe the print spooler service had stop. Try to stop and restart it again. Try this solution.

Go to START MENU
Choose Commamd prompt, right click mouse and run as administrator (You should be in this command C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32- If not type this command when you in the dos command prompt "CHDIR C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEMS32\ and press enter")
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 and must also turn off your printer and then switch it on.

If still not printer, try to set up or add once more the printer.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

My job will not print and I cannot cancel it or clear it. I have tried unplugging the power, turning the printer off and on, sending new jobs...nothing works.


For Windows try a combination approach. Unplug the data cable from both the computer and the printer (USB). Then stop the print spooler and restart it. You could do this from the Control Panel (System Services). I find it easier to do this from the Command Prompt (For Vista and Win7 you need to run as administrator) Start > All Programs > Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator (for older versions just left click on the Command Prompt).

At the prompt in the window, type "net stop spooler" without the quotes followed by hitting enter.
At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" again without the quotes and then hit enter.
(Press y if you are prompted with a warning about fax service after the first command). Then restart the computer after you see another prompt.

Once your computer has rebooted, check if the spooler is empty before reconnecting the data cable. Then try to print another job.

I hope this helps.

(you can actually stop the service without restarting it and then reboot. However, you need to take a long coffee break before the spooler finishes clearing the stuck document.)

Printer will not print anything except test page and wont delete


Possibly, the print spooler needs to be restarted. In Windows, one of the ways to do this is in the Command Prompt window. (Start > Accessories > Command Prompt, right click on the command and choose Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7).
Type "net stop spooler" <enter> without the quotes. At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" <enter> again without the quotes. After the last command finishes, restart the computer. Check that the queue is empty and retry printing.

I hope this helps.

Dell Laser Printer 1720dn Will only print test pages. When attempting to print a document, I click on 'Print', and the command is sent to the printer que, but the printer doesn't print. I've tried deleting...


Check that the correct printer is set as default. Also use File Print so that the selected printer is shown rather than using the Print button. If the test pages are being printed from the computer then the communication is working.
