    Lexmark 5470 print problems seem to be with the spooler. Either gets hung up at 99% or maybe 35%. Support installed new printer driver (which does not include fax driver!) and still have problems that appear to be with the spooling.

Printer keeps printing project last inserted and totally ignores my current instructions. In fact, once laptop is connected to printer it starts printing the previous item i.e. what it failed to print...


If you're using Windows, please follow the steps below to clear the print queue from stuck print jobs:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.



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

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)

If problem continues, disconnect your printer USB cable from your computer. For Windows OS, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. Delete the Lexmark print object. Reboot pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect the USB cable into your computer. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection before sending a new print job.



If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Printer only prints one page of multiple page document


hi..

You may try to change the spool data format:

1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Printers and Other Hardware" and "Printers and Faxes."

("Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers" for Vista...)

2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."

3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.

4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark *** series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."

5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.

6. Try printing again.

If you are on Vista Home Premium, go through the following steps to clear "deleted" print jobs from the print queue.

1) Go to Control Panel
2) Select System and Maintenance
3) Select Administrative Tools
4) Double-click on Services
5) In the list of services, scroll down until you find one called "Print Spooler"
6) Right-click on "Print Spooler" and select "Restart"
7) The "deleted" jobs will disappear and any queued jobs in your print queue will print

Hope this helps. I figured it out on my own without any assistance from the paid professionals
