The print spooler service is not running iam using MP830 printer


There are a few different causes for this. All of them leading to the "spooler" service to stop running.

The most common remedy is to just reboot the computer. If this fails, there may be a corrupted document in the spool queue that is crashing the service repeatedly here are the steps to clear it out:

For Windows XP (your computer says "start" in the bottom left)
1. Go to the "Start" menu and click "run"
2. in the window that comes up enter "net start spooler"
3. Try printing again.
4. If the problem continues then:
5. Click "start" and "Run" again.
6. enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS" and click ok and delete any items in there.
7. Close that window.
8. Restart the computer.
You should now be able to print.

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:
1. Click the blue "Start" orb
2. In the search box enter "command"
3. The computer will return with several items
4. Right click on the black item that says "command prompt"
5. click "run as administrator"
6. in the black window type "net start spooler" and press enter
7. try printing again, if it fails continue to step 8
8. open the blue start orb
9. in the search box enter "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS"
9.5. If you get a permissions message click continue
10. delete all items from there.
11. back in the black command prompt box, type "net start spooler" again
12. You should be able to print.

If you still cannot print, you may have one or more corrupted print drivers. In this case you will need to delete and re-install your printers from the computer using instructions from the manufacturer.

My printer doesn't work as it should be beacause i tried to print a page, i pressed ok but it didn't come out


Hi Bianca!
What you should do is to clear the print spooler - the printer queue. If you're using windows, right click on my computer and then press in "Manage", in the opened window go to "Services and Applications" and then "Services". go down the alphabetical list in the right window pane until you come to the service with the name "Print Spooler". Right-click this entry, then select "stop". This will stop the service that holds your print queues. Leave this window open, press on start and then type "spool" in the search bar (or in the "Run" command line if it's windows xp) and press enter. In the opened window, go to a folder named "PRINTERS", and Delete every file within this folder to empty the jammed print queue (pressing the "ctrl" and "a" keys will select all files and then you can just
hit "delete"). Close the explorer window now that we have emptied the cleared spool files, and return to your Services window. we must re-start the Print spool service, and do so by right-clicking the Print Spool entry and selecting "Start" from the list. Close the services window and try printing again. It should work now. Good luck!

I have a Lexmark X3550 printer and need a wireless adapter card, but cannot find this anywhere since Lexmark no longer carries this part. Is there another wireless adapter card that would be compatable...


Try E-Bay, you might be lucky.
Failing that, you can try using a LAN print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the printer server to your LAN.
Then any computers on your LAN can print to this printer.
OR
Connect the printer to your computer and set it up as a shared printer and if your computer is connected to the LAN then any computer can print to this printer provided you computer and printer are switched on.

I have had this printer for over a year and it has worked flawlessly until about 3 weeks ago and now it takes about 2 minutes after I click on print for the printer to activate. Any suggestions?


If your X3550 prints OK when it does start, perhaps the selection for printing immediately when receiving a print job has been changed to printing after entire print job has spooled.

This selection can usually be toggled between these two choices.

Able to print documents on HPc4385, but cannot print photos


When you were connected with a USB cable was it connected to the computer your using as local? Are you using a wirless print server? Possible corrections are in the properties of your print setup. You can change the spooling properties to print immediately to require less memory.

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.
