HP clj3505 print spooler

We have over 100 computers that will throw up a print spooler not available error (have to restart print spooler) when attempting to print at random intervals. Anyone else had this issue with the HP 3500 series laser jets?

My hp deskjet ink adv2060 K110 not print the spooler service not running?

Hello there Marejen,

See if there is any spooler.exe running in your task manager. Press ctrl, alt + delete to go there. If you see the process, click to highlight then end it. Then restart your computer and the printer itself. Then try to initiate a print again once everything is loaded.

Please let me know if this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have an HP 1020 printer. I cannot undertake any operation as the words " printer spooler not running " continues to appear on the screen. I tried to delete the printer and reinstall , without...

Hi there,
Print spooler not running is not the printer error, it happens when the print spooler service starts working in windows, For making it enable you dont have to reinstall the drivers for the printer, as print spooler service is for every printer, even if you put another printer the result will be the same
To Enable Print Spooler Open Control Panel
Go to administrative Tools>Services (For Windows XP Users)
Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools( for windows 7 users)
Open Services Find Print Spooler in the list
Right click the service and make it stop, if its already stop set it to Start and then again give prints
Double click on the service and set "Startup type to AUTOMATIC". You should now be able to get prints from your printer
Now restart your desktop/laptop and check if the service is still working by giving any test print.
Hope it will solve your issue
If you require more assistance, regarding this topic feel free to reply
Regards, BA

The print spooler service is not running

Restarting the Print Spooler
  • Before completely resetting the print spooler, you should first attempt to restart the print spooler service to see if it fixes your printing issues. To do so in Windows, open the Start menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon. Then open the "Administrative Tools" folder and double-click on the "Services" icon. Scroll down to the "Print Spooler" entry and click on it. If the service is not currently running, click the "Start" link on the left side of the window. If the print spooler is running, hit the "Restart" link. After the service has started again, try adding a new printer or printing another document to see if the issue has been resolved. if not do the following:

  • Reset the Print Spooler Files
  • After successfully booting your computer into safe mode, you can remove and reset the system's print spooler files. Open the Start menu and click on the "My Computer" icon. Go into the C: drive and navigate to the "Windows\System32\Spool" directory. Open the "Printers" and "Drivers" folders and delete all of the contents in them. Once the files have been deleted, restart your computer again and boot in standard mode. The print spooler files will be reset and the errors should no longer appear.

  • If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

    Windows could not start the spooler service on local computer when trying to connect hp c309a printer

    If you the print spooler isn't working, you can either manually turn it off and on by going into your control panel - Administrative Tools - Services - Print Spooler - Then click the restart button.

    The other easy option which usually works is just restarting your computer. This will restart your print spooler as well.

    Hope this helps! :)

    The printer is conected and thing but it wont print anythink and i haven't got the disc for it

    What type of connection and OS are you using? Software is still available for most HP printers from the HP support but not all OS's. ( and search for your printer) Does the printer show up in Devices and Printers (Windows OS)? Do you have jobs in the printer queue (spooler)?

    In general, try a new printer cable. If you are using a hub or print server, try a direct connection to the computer. If the printer reads as ready but has jobs stuck in the queue, stop and restart the spooler. (One way to do this on all Windows OSes - open the command prompt (Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7) type "net stop spooler" < hit enter key> without the quotes. At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" <enter> again without the quotes. Restart the computer.)

    I hope this helps.

    I have installed hp photosmart and get an error message '' restart print spooler error 1068'' I have tried everything but cannot restart my printer spooler.

    go back to your services where you start the print spooler. open the dependency tab. there it will tell you what other services the print spooler needs to have running. check them and if any are disabled change them to auto and restart them. reboot and you should be OK.

    HP print spooler problem and error 1068. Want my printer back!!!

    hi! Print Spooler is actually a service for your Operating system-
    Try this

    Click on start and click on run
    in the open box type in services.msc and your services local window should open, scroll down and look for print spooler, highlight it and do a right click and on the dropdown menu left click on stop and it will go to a process of stopping the service and then right click back and click on start. if you get an error message about print spooling or spooler, then that means you have a problem with the operating system. call or go to microsoft help and support online in that case. and RPC server unavailable error has something to do with a network printer. but i believe you setup the printer locally.
