Hi,
According to the error message, I assume that the spooler service cannot find out the printer on the network.
You may set the startup type of Printer Spooler service to Manual or Delayed Start for a test.
You could go to Customer support- just dial +1(800)243-0051 Toll Free.

RPC service may not be available or started on the client machine.
To start/ enable it go to 'Run Command' and type 'services.msc' , locate REMOTE PROCEDURE CALL (RPC) and start the service.

Rpc server is unavailable


This problem occurs because of a mismatch in the computer name and the name that the RPC service expects. This mismatch may occur if the computer name is changed by using one of the following methods:
  • The Microsoft System Preparation (Sysprep) tool was used to create the Windows XP image that you used to start the computer.
  • You change the computer name during the Windows XP Out of Box Experience.
  • One or more of the following conditions are true:
    • You disconnect the network cable during the Windows XP Out of Box Experience.
    • You do not restart the computer after the Windows XP Out of Box Experience has completed.
    • You open Disk Management.
To work around this problem, restart the computer at least one time after the Windows XP Out of Box Experience has completed, and before you open Disk Management
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.

Rpc server is unavailable


The computer displays error "RPC Server is unavailable".
It may be that you have a static value in your registry's field PagedPoolSize, we need to make this "0" (zero). check the steps ->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

"The RPC server is unavailable"


I?m assuming this is happening on a Windows machine. This is one of the really vague error messages that Microsoft give for an incredibly large number of problems. I typically see this on servers but have seen it occur on workstations. If you?re running XP, 2000 (server or Pro), or 2003: - Check and make sure your Remote Procedure Call Service is running. - There is an older vulnerability that tries to use a flaw in the RPC services. It is fixed if you copy of Windows is up to date so make sure it is. - Review your application log for any clues. If you need more assistance let us know your operating system, if it is fully patched and what is showing in your log file around the time you receive the error message.
