Question about HP LaserJet 3055 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Print Spooler and fax services have to be restarted daily

Every day at about the same time each day, my printer stops working. Then I have to open up services and restart the print spooler and the fax. I thought it was something with my printer because I purchased the demo'd model until one of my clients had the same exact problem. Please help, it's annoying and a production killer.

Thanx, Julie

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.

Then click on RESTART to restart the spooler

Printer Spoiler problem

<p><br />If the Print Spooler service fails when printing or when Windows starts or it can not be restarted, the usual reason is that one or more printer drivers is defective. The simplest way to resolve this is to remove all the drivers and reinstall them again.<br /> <p><br />If the Print Spooler service is not running, the Printers and Faxes folder will be empty and you can not use it to remove (or add) printers or printer drivers. <br /> <p><br /><b>Resolution:</b><br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Windows XP:</b><br /> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is operational:<br /> <p>1.<span> </span><span>Open the <b>Printers and Faxes</b> folder, Start-&gt;Printers and Faxes.</span><br /> <p>2.<span> </span><span>Delete all of the <span>printers</span></span> <br /> <p>3.<span> </span><span>Click <b>File</b>, Server Properties</span> <br /> <p>4.<span> </span><span>Select the <b>Drivers</b> tab</span> <br /> <p>5.<span> </span><span>For each entry:</span> <br /> <p>a.<span> </span><span>Select the entry</span> <br /> <p>b.<span> </span><span>Click Remove</span> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is not operational:<br /> <p>6.<span> </span><span>Open regedit Start-&gt;Run and type regedit.</span> <br /> <p>7.<span> </span><span>navigate to <b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers</b></span> <span>Under this key, there will be the keys Version-2 and Version-3 (one or the other of these may be absent - not a problem) the sub-keys under these contain the printer driver configuration information.

Printer is not working. There is no error light on and the ready symbol light is on. Nothing willnot print

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
End the Command with NET START SPOOLER

Open Printers and faxes folder - Refresh the Window - the printer will show Status ready with 0 document

Print spooler

To prevent the spooler from stopping, which is usually caused by invalid printer drivers left on a computer.

Go into "Printers and Faxes" delete all printers which no longer exist by right click --> delete

To restart the spooler :-

click start --> run
type net spooler start click ok
click start --> run --> services.msc --> click ok
scroll down to print spooler --> right click on it and select start

Job in queue

Let me exaplin the cause why the jobs get stuck in queue: When ever we try to print there is a windows service called print spooler that manages the print jobs in queue. We can clear the jobs in queue by just disconnecting the usb cable and restarting the print spooler service. Here are the steps to restart the print spooler : 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3.In the Run box type " net stop spooler " Then press enter Note: Type the text with out inverted cotes in the run box this will stop the print spooler service Next we have to restart the print spooler 1.Click on start 2.Then click on Run 3In the Run box type " net start spooler " and press enter Once done reconnect the usb cable and check for the jobs in queue. If there are no jobs in queue you can set the print directly settings to avoid this issue in future. Just open the printer and faxes folder and right click on the printer icon and select properties and then click on the advance tab and under it select the option print directly to printer and click on apply and Ok to save the settings. Once done try to print this should resolve the issue.. Wish u success..
