Hi

Its nothing but a Window installer issue, the pop up window appears to install the printer.This can be easily resolved.We need to download and install Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and remove the HP programs from it.

1.Click on the link below to download Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/9/d/e9d80355-7ab4-45b8-80e8-983a48d5e1bd/msicuu2.exe

2.Install it and then restart the PC.

3.Click start - >All programs-->Windows install cleanup utility.

4.Look for any thing referring to HP Photosmart printer and remove it.You will get a warning message, never mind it.

5.Once its done , reboot the PC and try printing.

Revert back if there is any problem

Thanks

DOES ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO SOLVE MY PROBLEM?HERE IT IS..IT ALWAYS OFFLINE MY PRINTER EVERYTIME i print it,he goes offline and the print is unabale to print can anyone help me?to fix..thank you. im using HP...


when you hook up your printer to your pc via USB...can the computer detect your printer? does it prompt out any msg such as new device is installed and ready to use or did it ask you to install the printer driver?
if your pc can't detect your printer, replace the USB cable and try again.. and try to plug into a different USB port on your pc.. and if all fails, then most probably your printer main board is faulty...

Canon 4150 wont print , goes into queue


Have you gone into the queue and deleted the print jobs and started again? Do you have any error lights? If so there could be a hardware problem with the printer.
Try taking out the toner and putting it back in. Sometimes that will force the printer to reset intself.
If that doesn't help then you may have to delete the printer from the system and re-install it.

Paper keeps feeding through and won't stop


Two possibilities;
One you have a messed up print job trying to print and when you turn the printer on the job just starts over.
Two the clutch that stops the pick roller is bad and the roller just keeps turning.
Unplug the machine from the computer and turn it off unplug power for awhile turn it back on not connected to the computer. If condition remains it is the clutch.
If condition goes away delete print jobs and re connect printer.
Hope this helps

Spooler sub system app??


The issue occurs because of a corrupted printer driver installed and because of the Vista OS that keeps updating.

-Open up c:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS

-Delete the contents of the directory (not the directory).

-Restart the print spool service. (service.msc)

Lexmark X2350 printer problem


Usually the light blinks if you have started a print job and run out of paper...it's trying to get your attention to insert more paper before it can continue. Check and see whether there are any print jobs that weren't able to conclude and delete them. Go to 1) Start, 2) Control Panel, 3) Printers and Other Hardware, 4) View Installed Printers, 5) Lexmark 2300 Series. When you double click on the Lexmark Printer Symbol, it will open up a smaller window which will show you whether there are any print jobs that are waiting to print. If there are any, delete them. Hopefully this will solve your problem.

Better off using uninstall utility in windows for removing programs
