Hello,

You will need to go to the Control Panel, Click on Administrative Tools and then click on Services. Scroll down to the service "Print Spooler" and right click it. Then click restart (or start if the service is not running).

Print spooler service not running


This means your printer is not correctly installed. Please remove the installed driver and printer from the PC and then follow the steps given in this TIPs N Trick by me:

Print problem from network


Try installing the drivers that came on the CD with the printer.

Do the following on the machine connected to the printer:
  • Uninstall all previous drivers from Add/Remove programs (if any exist)
  • Go to Printers in the control panel and from the File menu choose Server Properties
  • Select the current printer driver and hit the Remove button
  • Turn off and unplug the printer
  • Restart your machine
  • Install the drivers that came with the printer from the CD
    Note: Do not unplug the printer till asked by the installer
  • Try to print a test page from the same machine
On the client machines, do the following:
  • Delete the printer
  • Delete the printer driver from the Server Properties window as above
  • Use the Add Printer wizard to add the printer
  • It will automatically install the drivers on the client machine
  • Try to print a test page
If the driver could not be removed, try resetting the Printer Spooler service:
To do that
  • Open Control Panel -> Administrative Tasks -> Services
  • Find the Printer Spooler service
  • Right click and Stop
  • Right click and Start
Good luck :)

Spooler not running after Lexmark x83 installation on windows XP laptop


From what you're saying the windows print spooler service is not starting following the installation of your printer (and thereby you cannot print i'm assuming)

try the following to start the print spooler service if it is not already running.
Click Start
Right Click My Computer
Click Manage
Click "Services and Applications"
Click Services
Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and double click on it to open up the properties page
where it says "startup type" select automatic from the combo box list
Apply
If the service is NOT running, start it by clicking "start"
click OK

The print spooler service is started now, and **should** work properly. If the spooler is still not starting properly, then you may have a driver issue and i reccommend uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for your printer.

Printer Spooler Service turns off when I try to print


Un-install the printer and it's associated software via the Control Panel of your Windows PC.

Reboot your computer with the printer turned off and the USB cable unplugged.

Go to the Canoin web site and download the latest version of the driver for your operating system.

Run the driver install following the instructions in the install wizard.

Once the wizard is done, you should be OK again. If not, reboot and test the printer again. If it is still not working properly then you probably have a Windows problem and not a printer problem
