Re: Printer is ready but nothing prints
Yes, there is a number for Epson printer technical support. Assuming you are in the US or Canada the number is on this web page:

HP Support says “If the Ready light is blinking, and the Go light is on, it indicates Data in the printer memory is waiting to be printed. Pressing the GO button prints from Tray 1 or from another tray if Tray 1 is empty and the paper size is supported in the other Tray. Pressing the JOB CANCEL button cancels the current job and the printer returns to ready. Make sure the paper size is correctly defined.
Uninstall everything. Reboot. Unplug the printer. Install the software. Reboot. When everyting is up. Plug in the printer. Have the driver disc ready, install the printer. Reboot, go to settings, printers and see if the printer is listed. If it is, make it the default printer.Good luck
First I try to uninstall the printer, it didn't work, so I reinstall the the printer anyway, it worked for one print only.
As second attempt I disconnected the printer completely, turned the PC off, and after few minutes on again. Uninstalled printer.
Reconnected the cables again, install the printer - it works well!
Computer says to itself "waiting on printer status"
Printer says to itself "waiting on computer status"
1. Shutdown (using the normal operating system shutdown) the computer.
2. Turn off and unplug both the computer AND the printer at the same time.
3. Plug the printer back in first (and if necessary, turn it on) THEN
4. Plug in the computer and allow it to start normally.
Now try a print.
Let me know if this works for you.
The print spooler service is not running. Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup. (When clicking Add Printer) Operation could not be completed.
NOTE: Only these types of errors warrant the troubleshooting steps clearly defined below.
SPOOL.SVC is an operating system function which carries files through the operating system for printing. It must be STARTED (active) to be able to print or access any printer's functions. This file usually starts automatically with Windows, however operating system issues may cause it to become stopped. You cannot uninstall or reinstall a driver while this service is stopped.
Please try the following to start the service again:
1) Click on START, right click MY COMPUTER, left click MANAGE. 2) On the left column, double-left click SERVICES AND APPLICATIONS, then click SERVICES. 3) Locate and highlight the PRINT SPOOLER on the list of Services. 4) Click START THE SERVICE.
If errors occur and the service cannot be started, there is another issue within the operating system itself. Please contact MICROSOFT or your computer vendor for support. Once the service is started and operating normally, you will be able to access printer properties, uninstall/reinstall or send a document to the printer.
In this case, the print job is too large for the available printer memory.
Your choices are one of the following:
Press to clear the message, cancel the current print job, and conduct the next print job, if any.
· Press Cancel to cancel the current print job.
· Press Menu to open the Stored Print and delete the current job.
To avoid this error in the future, do the following:
· Reduce the number of print pages such as splitting the print data.
· Increase free memory space by deleting unnecessary data in the RAM disk.
As for the RAM disk:
When you send a job to the printer, you can specify in the driver that you want the printer to hold the job in memory.
When you are ready to print the job, you must go to the printer and use the operator panel menus to identify which job in the memory you want to print. You can use this function to print a confidential job (Secure Print), or verify one copy before printing additional copies (Proof Print).
NOTE: The printer holds the job until you delete it by using the operator panel or you turn off the printer. (This is the RAM disk)
NOTE: Print and Hold functions require a minimum of 320 MB available printer memory. Also, you need to configure the RAM disk settings on either the OPERATOR PANEL OR THE PRINTER DRIVER.
NOTE: Depending on the documents, its job may be too big for the available memory. In this case, an error occurs.
