Spooler crashes when printing random PDF's

Some PDF's print and others do not. I'll get the spooler crash error message and all my printers will be gone. then I have to delete everything from windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS folder and restart the spooler (net start spooler)... any solutions? It seems random.

    PC is rebooted daily, so I'm not sure what's up. Is it a driver issue? The printer supports PCL so I'm at a loss.

  • MIT-Derek Feb 25, 2008

    Same problem. The rebooting solution is a 1st grade answer. There is a real problem here with this printer. I have been able to replicate this problem on every pc on our network with this printer and have narrowed it down to pdf's that are scanned documents cause the print spooler to lock up. The file size the driver sends to the printer is massive, even if the file is 1mb, the file in the spooler queue shows 50 to 100mb.



    This is a problem with multiple versions of the drivers from HP also. Restarting the computer after having the spooler fixed and send the document back to the printer and it immediately locks again.

Installing new drivers dind't help. But what I did is I checked print as an image from within pring options in Adobe Acrobat (you gotta go to "advanced" to find that check box), and then it worked.

I had the exact same problem and I solved it by uninstalling Adobe Acrobat and installing Foxit. No more problem!

Had the problem for a few days.

I solved it by downloading the latest HP drivers from hp (that goes without saying)

Installing these on my print server, replacing the existing drivers.

and disabling bidirectional printing.

This is working in my office now.

Make sure you re-boot your computer once in a while, say once a week, if you leave it on all the time or use standby. Not doing so can leave the computer vulnerable to all kinds of weird things like this.

Hope this helps.

An office I support has lots of these and over the course of time every pc has had this issue.

The only solution I've found was to delete the printer, reinstall it, use the 1022nw drivers and uncheck advanced printing features once installed.

Printing problem (local and network) only with pdf


PDF files are designed to be small on the computer and are uncompressed when sent to the printer. The size of the PDF is filling up the memory on the print server causing it to crash.

make sure you have the latest printer drivers.

heres a work around if the drivers didn't fix it. check "print as an image" from within printing options in Adobe Acrobat (you gotta go to "advanced" to find that check box), and then it works fine.

go back to your services where you start the print spooler. open the dependency tab. there it will tell you what other services the print spooler needs to have running. check them and if any are disabled change them to auto and restart them. reboot and you should be OK.

"fatal print spooler error" error message


Completely uninstall the printer driver and install again. If this does not work, there is a corruption in the windows registry or in the print spooler cache files.

For a temporary workaround, disable print spooling. But, if you do, you will need to remember to never close an application you print from until printing is actually finished.

How do you connect the printer? Try to do it manually. Instead of searching for the printer on the network, give the path manually.
For ex.: \\name_of_the_server\name_of_the_shared_printer.
