    I just bought this MFC-240C and the cartridges that came with it seem alright . They worked OK earlier this afternoon . Now , I can't print from the computer - anything ( this unit is 3 days old). It will copy OK from the glass. It just backs up everything I try to copy from the computer - ike e-mails or letters etc. etc

    I did the microsoft malicious scan and nothing is infected. What else can I do?

  • John LeFebvre May 11, 2010

    These sort of problems can be really difficult to diagnose properly.

    What OS are using? I assume Windows XP? Are you virus free? What AV software are you using? Try running the microsoft malicious software tool to see if anything is on your system: -

    Click Start-Run, type MRT and press enter.

    Do a quick scan.

    Let me know what results come up!

Local print spooler not working. What do I do?


Try to uninstall the Lexmark driver and download an updated driver online. Just go to http://bit.ly/UmL4pl and choose the operating system of your computer.

If it doesn't help, check your print spooler if it's running. To do that, on your computer, click on Start > Run > type in Services.msc > OK > look for Print Spooler and make sure that it's started.

My lexmark 2760 is about 1 year old and not used a great deal. It does not print but appears to hold the print instructions in its memory and then decides to print all on its own after not working for...


It could be the print spooler service on your computer. Make sure the service is enabled.

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)


Reboot your pc. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall. This will reset your system. Once your printer and the pc's back on, try to print again.

You need to start the Print spooler service, this is in the control panel, under administrative tools, under services - then find print spooler and either start it or restart it.

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)
