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.

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.
Please contact MICROSOFT or your computer vendor for support.
Once the service is started and operating normally, you will be able to access printer properties, uninstall/reinstall or send a document to the printer.

Epson Style C86 printer will not print


Are the printer utilities programs in your Start Menu? If so, navigate to the program that is utilities, (should be the same pop up as when you replace a cartridge and it wants you to do the alignment and all that). You should be able to print a test page from there. Also you can go to Control Panel, double click on the printer icon, make sure it is your Epson, and run the utilities from there. Might need to uninstall the Drivers and reinstall them. This fixes a lot of printer problems.

that means that the heads must be replaced or the ink pump is faulty. It is not even worth the repair.
Call the Ebay seller and have your money refunded.

Printer not printing


I hate Epson. Had problems with Stylus C82 and now my replacement Stylus C86 has given me nothing but trouble.
I've just replaced all four ink cartridges and now when I print I'm only getting blank pages. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and nothing is working. I even called Epson, twice, only to be routed to the Phillipines where neither person was very helpful, in fact, had a hard time understanding their English. So this is what I;m going to do. I'm taking this bloody Stylus C86 outside and smash it with a hammer..then I'm going to buy a HR Printer...and if anybody from Epson reads this...good luck...your products SUCK!!

Epson Stylus C86 printing problem


There can be problems with cheap cartridges. Try another brand just to be sure. But if the printer is faulting- I don't think it is - it will have to be replace, there not a repair option. It it is fairly new - try the Epson web site - a low cost swap out replacement may be on offer,
