Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

Canon gp405 paper jamming problem and paper doesnot come out


Is the paper actually jamming or just not printing ?

You might have to uninstall the printer restart your computer then reinstall your printer Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you might see a yellow question / exclamation ? ! mark or a red X this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click to update driver select properties again you will have the similar options also you can troubleshoot the device you might have many prints backed up ((make sure you have the printer turned off)) otherwise it might print another page

if you have multiple prints in the queue you will have to open a file that you are about to print click ok a page will open with a

display print queue tab you can see all prints right click on the ones you don't need select cancel Hope this helps.

My printer does not allow me to print out pages with color.


go to start>printers and faxes> look for your printer and right click on it.. go to properties.. and look for the advance tab.. there.. click on printing defaults... what you see next dependes on your printer properties and features.. look for a setting that says something like "print color images in black and white" and uncheck the box.... look in to the quality or color management section... refer also to your printer documentation.

My printer wont stop printing from my computer when the page is finished,keeps going no matter what i do.


Maybe you need to clear the printer query. Then do like a print preview where you'll set up the print settings. Make sure only the # of copies you want is showing.
Is it printing the same print job over and over or pages you didn't select?
