Question about Lexmark Z1420 Printer

1 Answer

When I hover over its icon on the task bar, the message "1 document(s) pending" pops up. When I open Control Panel and go to Printers, there are no documents but it is in Error rather than ready. When I "See what's printing," there is no pending document. When I attempt to print a test page, it reaches 10% before stopping and reading "Error." I then cancel the job, and the status becomes "Error - Sent to Printer." I have tried resetting both my computer and printer, but neither fixes the problem.

Canon MP810 printer will not print documents, messages come up on screen: printer not responding, printer offline, document failed to print. Other capabilities are fine.


Hi, there is a possibility that the printer is set off-line or there is a pending print job that was stucked in queue. To check that please go to printer & faxes, right click on the printer icon (your printer), cancel all documents and click yes. Then right click again on the printer icon then select use printer on line. Try printing. If issue still present, restart prinrt spooler services. To access print spooler, goto control panel then administrative tools then select services. Scroll down the vertical scroll bar until select print spooler. Open it then click on stop then start. Try printing again.
