When i try to uninstall my lexmark x1190 it comes up printing not finished


Try to clear the Lexmark print queue from pending/stuck print jobs so you can successfully uninstall the Lexmark software/ printer driver. Here's how:
  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)
After successfully clearing the print queue, uninstall the printer software by going to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 1100 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Reboot your pc when prompted.
Hope this helps.

Document won't delete from printer queue after printed


Have you tried to stop the spooler service in services?

Option 1)
Click on start orb
Type in search window:
services.msc
click ok
Scroll down to Print spooler service and click on it in the right side window.
On the left side click stop the service and wait forthe process to stop .Do not close the window yet. You will have to restart it here later.
next delete the print job in the printer queue then restart the spooler service
Resubmit your new print job.

Option 2)
If that doesn't clear it, the next step would be to stop the spooler
service as stated above
Go into windows explorer
(Print job data is collected and stored in a spool file in the spooler folder.)

It is located in:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS

Your print job will show 2 files there Example below:
00002.SHD
00002.SPL

Delete the files located in there. There may be several of them depending apon how many print jobs you submitted. You will have to resubmit your print jobs all over again.
Next go back to services window and restart the spooler service

That will definitely fix it.

Can't install printer (lexmark 5150) because spooler isn't started


Right click on the "My computer" icon then select "Manage".

When the computer management window opens, click on the + sign next to services and applications to view the full list then highlight "services".

The list of services will appear on the right side. Scroll down until you see "print spooler" then double click on it to open the print spooler properties and click on the start button.

While you're there, make sure the startup type is set to automatic.

I have a lexmark x3550 and it says there is no spooler, and now it says there is no printer.


Verify that that the Print Spooler service, and all the services that it depends on, are correctly installed and running.
  • Open the Services Management Console (click Start, Run and enter services.msc).
  • Double-click the Print Spooler service to open its Properties window.
  • On the General tab, check that Startup type is Automatic.
  • Select the Dependencies tab.
  • Note all of the dependent services listed, then close the Print Spooler Properties window.
  • Repeat the above steps for the dependent services noted.
If any of the dependent services are missing or cannot be started, try uninstalling all installed printer drivers and then reinstalling them.
If this method cannot be completed or does not resolve the problem, try Method 2.
Method 2
Remove all Print Spooler service dependencies other than the Remote Procedure Call service.
  • Click Start, Run and enter sc config spooler depend= RPCSS (there must be a space after "=" but not before it.)
By removing the other dependencies the Print Spooler service should be able to run, but the printer functionality may be affected, and it may be necessary to reinstall the printer drivers.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

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.
