Where i could see the printer spooler?


I open the run command you can type: net start spooler
(You will get a message that says the print spooler service has started)
If you still have issues open the run command and type: services.msc
it will display a list, where you can find print spooler.

From there you can right-click on it and set it so it is started and runs automatically.

First remove both cartridges clean the gold plated area and the area where the ink goes out as well as the area where you plug it in ...And then turn it off first and then it turn it back on the open the cover wait for the cartridge carrier to go to the cetner and then install the cartridges make sure its properly plug in after plugging it in . lock the lever of carrier and close the cover .. Try to check if it will print print a test page . If nothing happens uninstall and reinstall the drivers

Hi there
You can try see if this may do it.

Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

HP laserjet 2600N print job stuck in the printer queue server 2003


  1. Hit start on your Windows and click 'run'. Type in cmd this will open the old version of what many call MS-DOS or C prompt.
  2. At the C command type: net spooler stop
    You will get a message when the spooler has stopped. Now you need to clean out the queue.
  3. Go back to start menu and click on run again. This time type:
    %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\spool\PRINTERS This will bring up the folder. Delete every file in there. (It's okay this will not harm anything.) Now you need to start the spooler again.
  4. Go back to your c prompt screen and type:
    net start spooler
    This will start the spooler for you again.
  5. Go check your printer queue. Sometimes you may need to f5 to refresh the screen. You did it. Your stuck files in your printer queue are all gone. You can begin printing again.

Printer is not working.


Hi Surenderpdsi
 
It sounds as if the printer spooler needs re-starting.
 
This is the path to the printer spooler service,
 
Windows XP Path (category view)
Start – Control Panel – Performance and maintenance – Administrative tools – Services.
 
Windows Vista Path (category view)
Start – Control Panel – System and Maintenance – Administrative tool – Services.
 
 
Once in Services both XP and Vista are the same.
 
Look down the list till you find Printer Spooler.
 
Once found, right click your mouse on Print Spooler and select Properties.
 
In the properties box that open the service status should read “Started” if not click on start.
 
If it says the spooler is started click stop, wait till the spooler has stopped then click start.
This will re-start the spooler and should fix your problem.
 
Hope this helps,
 
MK Support.

Print spooler


To prevent the spooler from stopping, which is usually caused by invalid printer drivers left on a computer.

Go into "Printers and Faxes" delete all printers which no longer exist by right click --> delete

To restart the spooler :-

click start --> run
type net spooler start click ok
or
click start --> run --> services.msc --> click ok
scroll down to print spooler --> right click on it and select start
