A print spool is a command that goes from your computer to your printer. you can modify this in the printer settings, by letting it print immediately.

also, you may want to grab some fresh drivers here

Printer stuck on spooling


Try the steps below to fix the spooling problem:
  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)

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

This message appears when trying to scan something: "Running out of memory. Increase memory available. Scanner driver will be closed.


On your computer click Start, double click on - printers and faxes, right click on - your printer, click on - properties, select the advanced tab, if not already selected, select - always on, select - spool print documents so program finishes printing faster, select - start printing immediately, select - print spooled documents first, select - enable advanced printing features. click - apply and close any open windows and try a print project that was causing the message to appear.
If there is still a problem, just send a message and we'll figure it out. Jim

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!

Won't print with vista operating system


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," "Printers and Other Hardware" and "Printers and Faxes."
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. Please try printing again.

The printer is printing so slowly.


I think what happens with these printers is Spyware and virus scanners etc... on our own machines remove the odd file..

Try putting the CD in the carriage when you are about to print something. Make sure it does not get stuck on the auto start page. Cancel and leave in carriage. Have found the odd time if the PC is looking for a file it will grab it off of the CD!

My Printer properties - Ports. Have configured mine for two ports Virtual USB and the dot4.... USB. I have enabled bi-directional printing and printer spooling. Enable printer spooling. Ensure start printing immediately is selected. Not sure if this will work but give it a go. Then Printer properties - Advanced - Always available - Spool print docs. so program finishes printing faster - Start printing immediately - Print spooled documents first - Enable advanced printing features.

Not sure if this will work but hope it helps.

When printing documents from my PC documents always sent to queue


Go to control panel, printers. Set your defaults there. You probably have spooling enabled. Uncheck it and your print job will go to the printer, rather than to spooling. Spooling is like rolling the print job up on a spool until the whole thing is processed, then unwinding it to the printer.

Hp deskjet 3325 not printing


I don't think it is a printer problem as such more a communication problem. Un install the printer software. Close down the Computer. Unplug the printer. Start the computer. Come off line. Disable the A/V software. Run the installation disk only plug in printer when prompted Tell us what happens
