Go to control panel, printers, find the printer you have, right click, see properties, bottom of page print test, see what happens. Did it ever print. Deleate printer, turn computer off turn on XP or Vista should find printer and install. Then test again as above.

Dell Computer says Dell Printer 1700 is "ready" but when try to send a print command a little window opens in the lower right corner of the desktop and says the printer is "offline"


Double check which is the default printer. It should have a check. Or choose the printer while using manual print instead just print.

Need to hook up my cell phone and printer to my Acer L310


I presume that you want to print some content present on your cell phone (picture or file). Instead of trying to connect your cell phone to your printer, you should connect your cell phone to your computer. Your friendly dealer will sell you the proper cable and software to do that. Once this is done, transfer what you want to print to the computer and then print it. Alternate way depends if your printer accepts memory module from your phone i.e. ( sd, micro sd, xd....etc ). If the printer can accept it, remove the memory from your phone using procedures in your user manual and insert it in your printer and then follow the procedures of your printer manual. This is the best I can suggest from the little amount of information you provided.

XP SP3 sends docs to print que but nothing prints


Open up your print queue. Cancel All jobs.

Go to the start menu and either click on, or search for cmd. This will open the command window. You also need to open your task manager.

In the task manager, search for a process called spoolsv.exe, or if that doesn't exist, find a process with "spool" in the name. This is your print spooling process. Right click the process, and end it. You can close the task manager now.

Next, go to the command prompt. Type "net start spooler" without the quotes, and hit enter. This should restart your spooling process. Close the command window, and try to print.

If this doesn't work, you should check to make sure you're printing to the correct printer. If it doesnt solve the problem, uninstall your current printer (you may have to end the spoolsv.exe process again), and reinstall the drivers for your particular model, which you can find at the manufacturers website.

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

Can't reinstall printer- ''print spooler is not working''


If you have the windows disk for it , Save everything important to disks.  Put WIndows  disk into machine and tell it to install. It will find you version and ask if you wish to repair it, Say yes.   If you have Xp pro just "Restore" computer to the date before the problem started. If you have neither one. Save you work and then reinstall everything using your backup disks.

Printer will not print.


Printer does not printIf the printer is sitting idle and there is no output, check the following:

  1. Make sure that the printer has power.
  2. Check that the printer is not out of paper, ink, or toner and that it is not in an error state.
  3. Verify that the printer hardware is working before continuing. Run a self-test (refer to the printer manual for instructions).
  4. Check the printer cable and make sure that it is attached properly to the port and the printer. Refer to your printer documentation.
  5. If the printer is a serial printer, make sure that the baud rate at which the computer sends data to the printer matches the printer's baud rate. For instructions on how to reset the baud rate, see ``Printer output is illegible''.
  6. Make sure that the printer is enabled and accepting jobs. See ``Enabling and disabling printers'' and ``Accepting or rejecting print jobs''.
  7. Verify that the system has the port configured properly. See ``Port does not respond'' for more information.
  8. Make sure that the port is configured for the proper interrupt vector and that no other hardware is using that interrupt vector. See ``Interrupt vectors'' for more information. See your hardware documentation for information on configuring your ports.
  9. Test the printer port connection by redirecting the output of a command directly to the device.
