    I continue to get above error messages.



    So I tried to unplug the HP Laser Jet 1020, then plug it back in. I then get a Windows error message:

    Spooler Sub System stopped working and was closed.

    A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available.

Trying to add cannon mp450 printer to my mac and error 9672 shows up it will not print


Click OK on the message prompt to close the message.

Uninstall the Epson Printer software that came with your printer using the uninstaller. Follow the on-screen prompts to uninstall the product.

From the hard drive, click Applications, then click Utilities and select the Printer Setup utility.

Click Add.

If your printer shows up in the printer list, select Printer. If the printer does not show up in the list, choose either Bonjour or Rendezvous as the connection type and then select the printer from the list.

Under the Print Using list, select epson stylus CX5000.

In the list of available drivers, select the epson stylus CX5000 - Gimp-Print driver.



Click Add

Using the Gimp-print driver might provide basic print-only functionality. This driver is a built-in driver in the Macintosh Operating System and will not provide all of the features that are provided using a direct USB connection.

Printer is too slow to print once the command is given from PC


Hi
While printing from the USB Port sometimes slow printout/data transfer will result in slow printing of print jobs. or The printer might be printing slow , pausing in between print jobs , or intermittent printing. The symptom solution is mention below, read and follow the instruction.

Solution 1

After the printer is installed on the USB Port, check the description under the Ports Tab what is selected. Please refer to the figure below : c00873625.jpg Using the USB/ Virtual Printer Port and DOT4/ HP Laserjet 2420, under the Port/Description Tab printer speed will be as per the standard.

Printer not responding


I had the same problem after I accidentally pulled the power cord out of the printer - it turned out to be the firewall on my PC, when the printer reconnected to the wireless network it got a new IP address and the firewall was blocking incoming messages from it.

your printer services ( the printer spooler ) for your computer is stuck trying to print the document.

Reboot the computer and this should clear the error. If that does not work, you need to go to administrative tools, in the control panel, and select "services". scroll down the list until you get to "print spooler". right click on it and then "stop". Then right click on it and "start" or "restart".

This should allow you to then remove the old printer.
