SOURCE: "Error 1068 Could not start the Printer Spooler on local Computer"

Just to add to CoachTim's excellent solution, i find that removing the printer from the usb port as well as turning it off helps. But make sure you uninstall printer completely from add/remove programmes and check in the folder after that there is no canon printer listed. download this UK driver http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0024838.asp?model= Restart your pc before re installing and re connecting printer.

HI,
right click on my computer -> select manage -> one should be services and something (or something like that) open that and go to services -> find the printer spool service and right click on it -> click on properties -> in the printer spool service properites click the "Start" button and also under a drop down menu change it from "Disabled" to "Automatic".... This is what you did right ?

Log in to Administrator account and try it there. If that doesn't work then install a fresh copy of Windows Xp. It should work now. Thank you.

SOURCE: Cannot install my Cannon mp 210 printer

Hi, the spooler service is usually set to start automatically when the PC starts up. It sounds as if this may have been changed.
To check this right click on "My Computer" & select "Manage" (4th one down), at the bottom of the list you will see "Services & Applications" - if you click on the + next to it you will see some more options, 1 of which is services.
Click on services & the right hand pain will list all services installed on your machine, it should be in alphabetical order so work down to the "P's" & find "Print Spooler", under startup type it should say automatic if it says anything like Manual or Disabled just double click it & on the window that appears change the setting to automatic using the dropdown box, click on start to start the service & you should be flying!

Let me know how you get on.

How can I print from my I Pad?


Your options seem to be kind of slim. There are many printing apps available, but from what I have read many of them do no perform properly.
Apple's official answer seems to be syncing your documents to your PC or laptop and then printing from the computer.
Try doing a quick search in the App Store and maybe you will have better luck and find one that will work with your printer.

Printers says it is offline


hi,
Being 'offline' means there is no communication between the printer and your PC.
To change it to 'online' try the following:
  • On the start menu,go to printers and faxes and check out installed printers.
  • Double click on your printer and a window pops up.On this window go to printer on the menu bar and uncheck 'use printer offline'. Try printing now.
  • Still offline?
  • Uninstall the printer[make sure you have installation disk]
  • Unplug the printer from power and your pc too.
  • Plug them back after a few minutes and start installation afresh.
  • After installation restart your pc.
  • Now print!
Worked for me,hope it works for you!
THANK YOU!

Printer does not print. have prints in que but doesnt print


Have you tried a quick reboot? Of course, save the file you want to print, reboot your PC and try printing it again. If this doesn't work, try removing your printer in the "Devices and Printers" that you can find in the control panel (or Printers in XP). After removing, try adding a new printer again. Don't worry, you won't need drivers then because the driver is already in your PC after you installed the printer the very first time.
I hope this helps... (,'')

Scanning problem


This seems like you haven't installed the toolbox correct, please send more info.
Have you printer connected by usb cable or in a network(scanning doesn't work on a wireless)?
If on a network, use web browser and through EWS on printer see for network tab and SNMP enable read/write, print public in the 4 fields choose apply. Download fix scan utility from HP web and install. Restart the pc and set up the scan in toolbox and try scan again.
