It looks like a communication issue. It seems that the printer is quiting to communicate with the computer intermittently.

If the printer is on network, you may want to reset the printer IP address and reinstall the printer driver to test.

Cold reset unlocks menus that have been previously locked and sets all control panel menu items (including EIO settings) back to the factory defaults. However, it does not clear the values in the
NOTE: Before performing a cold reset, print a menu map and a configuration page
1. Turn the device off.
2. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the check button. Continue holding down the check button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds
3. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the arrow up and arrow down buttons until COLD RESET is highlighted.
4. Press the check button. The device performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.
5. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set device configuration values.

Print a configuration page from the Printer INformation Menu after restarting the printer. The IP address would ideally be a different one if your network is a DHCP network. If not, you will have to manually configure the IP address on the printer. You may do that by accessing the Configure Menu on the PRinter control panel.

Try configureing the printer driver to the new IP address. It should solve the issue.

If that doesnt work, you may want to download a new driver from the website and install it.

Print spooler service is a computer service that loads the print jobs into the printer memory for later printing and it acts as intermediary between a computer and a printer. When the print spooler service is stopped or malfunction, printing is not possible.

Here are the possible reasons :

1. Virus or Malware infection.

2. Spooler service was stop by accident or turn off to manual/disable mode.

3.Faulty installed printer driver that contains error or incompatible with previous printer drivers installed in your computer or system.

4. Print jobs and drawing jobs were corrupted by accident which caused print que lock and resulting print spooler service to crash.

5. Your printer had printing problem issue with pdf files.

To fix this problem, you have to check if the print spooler service had stop.

Here's how to check and fix the print spooler service.

Choose RUN
Click on PRINT SPOOLER and check if the STATUS IS STARTED

Then click on RESTART to restart the spooler

I am attempting to delete a print job on my psc 2210 but after waiting 12 hours it is still there blocking other print jobs I'd like to make. How can I delete this one?

Go to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, then Services. Scroll down to Print Spooler. There are 2 selections on the left, Stop and Restart. Go ahead and hit Stop. Once it does, click delete on the printer screen to get rid of the unwanted document. Then click Restart to start the spooler again. This should work.
