Printer is on pause

On your computer, go to Start menu > Printers & Faxes > double-click on the Lexmark X2600 Series print object. In the print queue window, click on Printer tab and select Resume Printing. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

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)

Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Print spooler service is a computer service that loads the print jobs into the printer memory for later printing and it acts as intermediary between a computer and a printer. When the print spooler service is stopped or malfunction, printing is not possible.

Here are the possible reasons :

1. Virus or Malware infection.

2. Spooler service was stop by accident or turn off to manual/disable mode.

3.Faulty installed printer driver that contains error or incompatible with previous printer drivers installed in your computer or system.

4. Print jobs and drawing jobs were corrupted by accident which caused print que lock and resulting print spooler service to crash.

5. Your printer had printing problem issue with pdf files.

To fix this problem, you have to check if the print spooler service had stop.

Here's how to check and fix the print spooler service.

Choose RUN
Click on PRINT SPOOLER and check if the STATUS IS STARTED
If not, on the upper left side, click on STOP to stop the spooler service
Then click on RESTART to restart the spooler
Restart your printer and your computer

Have you checked if there are any Documents Stuck in Queue to print ? ( under Control panel - Printer and faxes folder )

Click on Start button
Click on Run
Type SERVICES.MSC and click ok
look for Print Spooler in the list
highlight Print Spooler,
Click on STOP button then click on START
close the window and check if the print queue is gone. ( Refresh the Printers and Faxes folder )

If this does not fix the issue :

Alternate method,

Click STart
Click RUN
Type Cmd ( or COMMAND ) and hit enter
In the black window type
NET STOP SPOOLER ( hit enter button )
NET START SPOOLER ( hit enter button )

Repeat the Stop and START Command 4-5 times
