Printer Spoiler problem


<p><br />If the Print Spooler service fails when printing or when Windows starts or it can not be restarted, the usual reason is that one or more printer drivers is defective. The simplest way to resolve this is to remove all the drivers and reinstall them again.<br /> <p><br />If the Print Spooler service is not running, the Printers and Faxes folder will be empty and you can not use it to remove (or add) printers or printer drivers. <br /> <p><br /><b>Resolution:</b><br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Windows XP:</b><br /> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is operational:<br /> <p>1.<span> </span><span>Open the <b>Printers and Faxes</b> folder, Start-&gt;Printers and Faxes.</span><br /> <p>2.<span> </span><span>Delete all of the <span>printers</span></span> <br /> <p>3.<span> </span><span>Click <b>File</b>, Server Properties</span> <br /> <p>4.<span> </span><span>Select the <b>Drivers</b> tab</span> <br /> <p>5.<span> </span><span>For each entry:</span> <br /> <p>a.<span> </span><span>Select the entry</span> <br /> <p>b.<span> </span><span>Click Remove</span> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is not operational:<br /> <p>6.<span> </span><span>Open regedit Start-&gt;Run and type regedit.</span> <br /> <p>7.<span> </span><span>navigate to <b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers</b></span> <span>Under this key, there will be the keys Version-2 and Version-3 (one or the other of these may be absent - not a problem) the sub-keys under these contain the printer driver configuration information.

Will not print computer says "printer is READY" - when I try to print -- message says ERROR


Hi,

Assumption that installation is completed without any errors.

You are getting error because the printer spooler is stopped so follow the instruction to solve the problem:

Click on the start menu in that click Control Panel.
Now look for Administrative Tools and open it.
Double-click on Services.
Now go through the list and check for "Print Spooler". It should say "started" under STATUS, and "automatic" under STARTUP TYPE.
If it isn't started, the computer doesn't know what to do when it's trying to send a doc to the printer.
So, right click on the print spooler and select PROPERTIES.
In the drop down box for startup type, select "Automatic" and click apply.
This should work. If you still face the problem do reinstall, make sure you uninstall the software using the "uninstall" option, either in the control panel, or on the installation CD that came with the printer; don't just delete folders. Then reinstall the software.

Sometimes a file just gets corrupted, for some reason, and this will fix that.

Hope this helps.

Spooler missing


Hi
Try removing BOTH cables from printer for at least 1 minute.
Many printers will reset to factory settings.

Otherwise switch off printer and remove printer driver then reinstall it.

Good Luck

My HP deskjet F4810 printer keeps going offline


Hi,

As described by you , there might be an issue with teh spooler service of your computer , u can follow the undermentioned steps that might help you.

  1. Open a Command Prompt window

key the commands
net stop spooler


2. In the run (Start Search for Vista) type : c:/windows/system32/spool/drivers…look for w32x86 folder.

3. Inside w32x86, there will be folders with the names 2 and 3 (one or more of these may be absent - not a problem)
delete all of the files and sub-folders in each of the 2 and 3 folders, but not the folders themselves. Inside 32x86, there may be other folders with names starting with "Hewlett-Packard", "hphp" or something else; delete these folders also
.
4. In the run (Start Search for Vista) type : c:/windows/system32/spool/printers: delete any files there. By default, this is where the print spooler stores print files.
5. Open a Command Prompt window
key the commands
1. sc config spooler depend= RPCSS

(note the space after the = but not before)
2. net start spooler

Cleaning from Registry:

1. Take backup of registry:
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers

  1. There might be two entries names Version-2 and Version-3 under drivers: click the plus sign against them and remove everything under them.
  2. Then click the plus sign against PRINT PROCESSOR, which is under DRIVERS and make sure there is only one entry i.e., WINPRINT. If there is any other entry, just remove it.

The spooler cleaning is complete.

now reinstall the printer .
