Print Spooler Definiton: "Software that manages sending jobs to the printer. When an application prints a document, the formatted output is stored on disk, and the print spooler feeds the print images to the printer in the background at slower printing speeds."

  • "Storing the print jobs on disk allows multiple printing requests to be queued while the user continues printing from the same or other application without waiting for the current document to be printed."
Spooling: stands for (Simultaneous Peripheral Operations OnLine) S.P.O.OL.

So when it's Says "Spooling", it's basically storing the print job/task on the disk.

Spooling, is where the information being sent to the printer is being checked/converted for the printer driver , prior to being printed

I am trying to print and keep getting a spooling message


I had the same problem and basically you need to uninstall the driver, then reinstall it again. By the way, Kodak no longer makes printers because they keep breaking due to performance problems. I had two of them and had to return the original four times to Kodak for repair.

If you cannot fix the problem, look into a new printer.

Disconnect the USB cable, go to RUN and type in services.msc and then find print spool and right click, then choose restart.


OR:

When I print, it says spooling


Go to Control Panel, Printers and Faxes, Cancel any pending document on your Kodak Printer, then delete all kodak icons.
Turn off the printer, Unplug and Replug the USB cable, then turn on the printer. If nothing happens..
Second options: Click Start then select Run Type the word "net stop spooler" then "net start spooler" Then unplug and replug the printer while its on.

Kodak aio3 - stuck on 'spooling' using GIMP


First of all, GIMP uses its own printer drivers (you can view the make and model options under the "Setup Printer" choice in GIMP's Print interface). If your main printer driver choice is not found in GIMP's printer options, you won't be able to print in GIMP. Secondly, for GIMP assings a "Post Script 2" level to the printer by default. If you leave it there, it won't print. You have to change that by actually choose you printer make and model from the drop down box and the save the settings or it will revert back to Post Script 2 on the next load. Hope this helps.

New Kodak EasyShare 5100 will not print!


You might have to reformat your hard drive as there is something in your OS that is hindering the printing.
