Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

What's your problem?Compatible printers


I think you might have installed the printer twice. If that's the case you will need to delete one because if two of the same printers are installed it confuses the computer and confuses you. Only one printer can be active and if there are two you might have printed to the one that is not active so all the print jobs when into the print queue.

Click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel. Look for Printers and open it. If you see more than one of the same printer then that's your problem. Right Click on the extra printer and select Delete.

Look down at the bottom right near the time and see if you see a printer icon, if so click on it to open it. All the print jobs you tried to print will be backed up in the queue so you want to cancel or all of them.

I cannot get my document printed. when i try to print I get the message printer is busy then , another message that states a printing error occurred appears


Open Notepad and type the following lines:
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

Save it in your root directory as: C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd
Create a shortcut for it and move it to your Desktop

Now everytime you have print job(s) that got stuck in the print queue
go to your desktop and Double Click on the DeletePrintJobs.cmd

It will clear all pending print jobs in the print queue and allow you to
print new jobs again.

Printer shows ready, whenI send a print job to the printers it displays printing, but does not print. The unable to cancel or remove printing jobs.


Check if the printhead starts moving when powering on the printer. The problem might lie in the printhead electrical contact pints in which case clean it gently. Alternatively replace the print cartridge where at least black ink is present. If these are OK but it wont pull in the paper then the rollers might be jammed. If its a laser printer,check by changing the tober cartridge amd post the result as a comment.........sodeep
