You have toi go ahead and start the spooler service.
here's how you can go to the Services Menu

if you have XP:
>> click on the start button
>> click on Run
>> type in "services.msc"

if you have VISTA:
>> click on the start button
>> click on Start Search
>> type in "services.msc"

The Services Menu would open up
you will see a lot of service names listed on the right hand side..

>> Now look for a service name that says "print spooler"
>> right click on it
>> click on start..

this will start the service..
restart the computer once you have done that..
this will hopefully resolve your issue..

My hp 2360 wont print, green light keeps on blinking, it says printer offline on the printer status bar


Make sure that cable to printer is attached and if printer still shows offline then in control panel for the printers make sure that you right click and choose Use Printer Online

What the flashing light means
The Power light can flash for several reasons:
? The printer cover is open.
? The printer is out of paper.
? A problem exists with the printer, such as a paper jam or a problem with a print
cartridge.

Hpdeskjet problem


A light blinking under the cancel button usually indicates a problem with the color cartridge.
Go to this page for instructions on resolving that issue - about halfway down the page is a picture of your printer control panel with both the left and right light blinking. The section explains that it's to help if "One or both print cartridge status lights are on and blinking."

Hi:
If you open the door on the top of the printer, while it is powered on, the ink cartridges will move to a spot that shows you the status of your ink.. There are little cartoon pictures of the cartridges with smiles or frowns to tell you if you have an empty color or black cartridge.

Blinking teardrop light blinking


Blinking drop light on HP6122 signifies an ink cartridge is out of ink. There are two cartridges -- color (larger of two) and black (smaller of two). Blinking drop light only indicates either, but not which. HP6122 service software and print driver are available from HP website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=83027&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us. HP6122 service software has a printer maintenance utility which includes ink cartridge monitor. Use the maitenance service utility to determine which (or both) cartridge is out of ink. With cartridge replacement, printer should automatically print test page, then reset and be ready for printing from your computer. To clear printed documents from print que, open the HP6122 print que via control panel > printers > double-click on HP6122 driver to show que > select document tab > select cancel.

My HP printer's light blinks, but it doesn't print.


two things to consider.
1. If the blinking is fast (like more than two blinks per second) then the printer is damaged. Either the main controller board is fried or the carriage/ink controller is damaged.
2. if the blinking is slow ( 1 blink per second) this means that either of your cartridges is busted. remove the black cartridge then close the top cover. If the blinking stops, then the black ink is the culprit. If not, replace the black then remove the other cartridge. THis means that one of your cartridge needs to be replaced.
