Hello,

Without knowing the exact error or the operating system I can only suggest this option for XP.

Start > Run > type in "services.msc" (without quotes) and click OK
Services window opens
- maximize it to make it easier to see -
Scroll down to Print Spooler service -
Double click on it to open the properties for it -
The Startup Type should be "Automatic"
Then click on Start under Service Status
Once it is started, click OK -
Then close the Services window.

If this doesn't correct the issue please reply back with your operating system and the exact error that you receive and I will give your more detailed assistance.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

My lexmark p707 has just stopped printing. It keeps cancelling jobs and tells me to reinsert the cartridges (which I have done). But is still not working. Help pls?


It could be due to the Print Spooler on your computer. Please follow steps below to ensure print spooler service is running and print queue is clear from pending print jobs.
  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)
  4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.
Try to print again.

If startup type is "disabled", click the drop-down and set to "Automatic" and then click "Start". If already on automatic, click "Stop" to stop the service. Once stopped, click "Start" to restart the service.

Reboot and try again :)
