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?

Can't printer something about the spool


Try the steps below to clear the print queue and restart your print spooler:
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.

While attempting print a document, Dell All-In-One 948 InkJet Printer printed a document that was not opened. How can that happen? I haven't tried anything to fix it because I don't know where to...


Most likely, this document was already in the print queue and never got printed. If that's the case, open notepad, enter the following commands : net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

Save this to your desktop as DeletePrintJob.cmd, run as administrator (right click on it, select run as administrator), then reboot your pc/powercycle the printer. This should resolve your issue. If not, please let me know.

Spooling problem


The print spooler stop. This is the meaning of the message. What you can do is to restart the print spooler. Here's how:

Start >Run > type "services.msc" (w/o quotes) > click on Print Spooler.

Then you will see the word "Print Spooler" on the upper-left and you will see "Stop the service" and "Restart the service". Click on Restart the service and then close the window.

Try printing again.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

SPOOLER SERVICE IS NOT RUNNING


If you are receiving SPOOL.SVC or PRINT SPOOLER ERRORS when trying to uninstall/reinstall your printer, or when trying to print a document or access the printer properties, please follow the steps below.

The following are examples of some of the messages you may be receiving:

Spool.svc is not running. Make the service active and try again.
Printer Properties cannot be displayed. The print spooler service is not running.
Printer cannot be removed. The print spooler service is not running.
Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup.
(When clicking Add Printer) Operation could not be completed.

NOTE: Only these types of errors warrant the troubleshooting steps clearly defined below.

Resolution:

SPOOL.SVC is an operating system function which carries files through the operating system for printing. It must be STARTED (active) to be able to print or access any printer's functions. This file usually starts automatically with Windows, however operating system issues may cause it to become stopped. You cannot uninstall or reinstall a driver while this service is stopped.

Please try the following to start the service again:

1) Click on START, right click MY COMPUTER, left click MANAGE.
2) On the left column, double-left click SERVICES AND APPLICATIONS, then click SERVICES.
3) Locate and highlight the PRINT SPOOLER on the list of Services.
4) Click START THE SERVICE.

If errors occur and the service cannot be started, there is another issue within the operating system itself.

Pls Rate as Fixya if this helps, Thanks!!
