HP psc 1100/1200 all-in-one stopped printing


Press and hold the cancel button and then press the start copy button release them together.

You should print a test page. No Test page an internal printer problem is likely!

If test page is good reset the spooler \. More than one way to reset spool file. Spool file controls transfer from computer to printer. Spool file a mess then printer hangs!!!


Method 1
a. Go to Start / Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Services
b. Select "Print Spooler".

c. While Print spooler is stopped, start it by double-clicking on "Print Spooler" and then click the "Start" button.

d. Verify that the "startup type" is set to "automatic".

Method 2
Create a new txt file
Type in exactly as the following text:

net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler


Rename txt file killspool.bat

save on desk top
Double click off of desktop file to run

Next time printer hangs you can use this file again

Hope this helps?

Kyocera printing very slow


Has it always been slow, or is that a recent development? At its fastest, the FS-2000 only prints 31 pages per minute, and that's for regular single-sided 8.5" x 11" with no special requirements. Anything else will (thick paper, longer paper, duplexing, etc.) will slow the print speed down.

One thing you can try to speed up the print speed is to change your spool options in the print driver. Go into the print driver (Control Panel > Printers & Faxes, right click on the FS-2000 and select Properties) and find where the spool options are located. Try selecting different spool options (such as waiting to send the job until all the pages have spooled, or sending it page by page) to see if any of them affect printing speed.

There are other options in the print driver's properties which could affect printing speed as well. Look around the different tabs and try changing some of the options to see if they make any difference.

You can also go to Kyocera.com and download and install the newest version of the print driver, which might speed up processing as well.

Hope that helps!

I bought refilled catridges for my printer and it printed the test page fine. But will not print any documents from my files.All my connections are good and it even printed test pages from my computer what...


most of these issue are caused by either corrupt printer driver or busy print spooler.

You can try these steps:

Vista Printer problems - Printer not printing Test page or docs


You may have to change the communication format called the "Spool format."

Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:

1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
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 1200 series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
If this does not help the situation, please describe any differences it does make.

Hp laser jet 1020 has refuse to print


try to see if the printer will print anything by opening and closing the top door that leads into the toner seven times just open and close, if the printer prints a paper with lines then the printer is working now if the printer doesnt then try to take out the ink, paper and unplug the power cord and let the printer set for about three minutes..
If the printer does prints now it up to the printer spooler itself make sure thier isnt any jobs stuck in the spooler, if there is delete them and also reset the printer spooler, if that doesnt clear them out reset the computer, this will help it, finally when you have that done, do a test page by going into the printer and faxes and right clicking the laserjet 1020 going into properties, and in the general tap click on the test page this should print out a test page. if it does then your printer is up and running.

One suggestions would be to update the firmware of the Netgear Wireless print server Download the firmware for your print server from Netgear's website http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d102781.asp Instructions for upgrade are on the site! you can also try changing the spool settings, Set it to Print directly to printer RightClick on the printer click on properties and click the advanced tab. Change the spool setting to print directly to printer!! If this doesn't work kindly let me know! regards, babb
