Printer Problem - Print Job In Print Queue Is Preventing Other Print Jobs

Cannot print from new laptop to shared printer - "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing". I recently bought a new laptop and want to print to a printer (hp color laserjet 1600) i have shared over the network from a windows 7 (x64) machine. When i try to print from my laptop it stays in the print queue and i have to run the troubleshooter on the host computer to resolve the issue and allow it to print.

If i run the troubleshooter on the laptop it tells me it could not identify the problem while on the host it tells me "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing" and it says it fixed the problem and prints the document but i have to do this every time. I also have this printer added to a laptop and a netbook and they both print the document just fine and have no issues. The laptop i am having the problems is running windows 7 (x64).

F2480 Printer Error Message

Purchased a new all in one f2480, tried to install, got error message.contacted hp tech support, they took command of computer, installed new driver/software from site. Printer ran that same day. Next day started computer got blue screen advising of error and suggestion to start in safe mode.contacted tech support again. Uninstalled driver/software. Started from beginning and could not get set up. After two days and about 5 1/2 hours on phone, canceled installation.

Took that printer back, got another, model f4480 with disc that reads for windows 7. Started installation and got same error message as with first printer. What next? Help site was unable to help with first printer, can only guess won't help with this next one. Old printer, model f4140 had no problem setting up, just plug in and go. Just needed to replace because of envelope printing problems. Any suggestions?

Error Message - Windows Cant Add Printer

Error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine". Having upgraded to windows 7 home premium 64 bit from vista home premium 64 bit, i expected to be able to plug my epson stylus d68 printer into my laptop and have it installed straight away. However when i tried to do this installation constantly failed. I therefore went to the manual add printer option within the devices and printers menu.

However i was met with this message error message: "windows cant add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spoiler or restart the machine", after checking existing forums on the issue i attempted to restart it from the services option. However the option to restart was blanked out and when i simply tried to start i was then met with another error message: "windows could not start the spooler service on the on local computer, error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".

Additionally when i click on properties for the spooler in the description it says failed to read description. Error code:1813. This is all very frustrating for someone who simply wants to add a printer to his laptop. Can someone please help? Because i am all out of ideas.

Error Message - 0x00000002 - Add Printer

Network printer shows offline after disconnecting from the host machine. Error message 0x00000002 while trying to add the printer. Can't connect to printer in windows 7. I have a shared hp printer on lpt1 of a computer (the host) running windows 7. I temporarily disconnected the printer.

While it was disconnected, someone tried to print from another computer (client 1). I re-connected the printer and it works without trouble from the host computer. It also works from a client (client 2) that did not previously have the printer installed.

However, client 1 showed it as 'offline'. I could find no way to make it 'online'. I removed the printer from client 1's devices and tried to re-add it. I cannot re-add the printer. All i see is "error message 0x00000002". The printer is shared and available - nothing changed and it works from other clients. What is going on? This is ridiculous and extremely frustrating.

Error Message - Cannot Retrieve Application List - Lexmark Printer

When i installed my lexmark x4650 printer i received a message saying "required system software not installed", microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue. I went to microsoft to download and got a message that it was already installed on my computer. Now i can't get rid of the message telling me to get the software, (it pops up every time i turn on the computer) and i can't get the printer to scan to the computer.

I get a message on the printer that it  "cannot retrieve application list". The printer prints perfectly fine, but will not scan. I just installed the printer on a new computer and everything was working fine on the old one. The only thing different is this time i am wireless.

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.

After doing this, i am getting the error 'wsd print device doesn't have a driver' i am unsure if this is a windows issue or dell issue so searching for answers from both. This printer connected easily to desktop running vista when set up wirelessly.

Setup Network With Win7 And Xp To Share Printer

I need to know how to set up a network with a hp windows 7 laptop, dell windows xp, belkin wireless router, and share a kodak printer between the two computers on the network. Whenever i run the setup disk for my belkin wireless router it messes up the internet connection and wont let me connect.

I tried to set up a network that way and it worked until for a few hours then my windows xp computer disappeared from the network but still had connectivity because it is plugged into the wireless router. I need to know if there is anyone that can help me resolve my problem and as soon as possible. Another thing i do is get on xbox live by plugging my xbox into my windows 7 laptop and half the time that don't work. Can anyone help me resolve this problem too?

Cannot Print To Hp 6500n Printer

I just installed windows 7 upgrade over vista, and cannot print to my hp 6500n printer. Any clues? I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall drivers, but it still doesn't work, though it appears as one of my devices. I am having problems printing in all programs. I had already attempted to use: go to hp printer support and download this driver for window 7 32 bit.

File name:userhpndu-2017.exe, (1/1, 1. 2m)
Version 2. 0. 0. 17
Date 2009-10-20

When i do that, i get "this system does not meet one or more of the minimum requirements needed to install this product. The installation can't continue". So, nothing happens. Interestingly, the printer is in control panel, even though i have uninstalled and rebooted. During the last attempt, i connected the printer using the usb and windows appeared to attempt to grab a driver, but again, it does not work now wirelessly, and it did using vista.

Cannot Print To Remote Printer

I had vista home premium on my laptop from which i could print on an old lexmark z11 attached to another laptop running xp. Recently i upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot print this way. Although the 7 machine can see the printer, it says it is 'ready' and i see stuff in its print queue on my machine, after a while these items disappear without appearing on the xp machine's queue. The printer shows no activity whatsoever. I have removed the printer from my machine and reinstalled it. Still no joy. The xp machine has extra drivers loaded for "2000 and xp".

After Reboot Printer Will Not Print

I am with the guy about the troubleshooter not working half the time. I have a lexmark z715 printer. Installed windows 7 on a new partition on a new hard-drive fresh and it detected the printer and downloaded a driver that worked and all was fine. 2 days later i shut down the computer and didn't use it for a day.

Come back online and print spooler quit working. Ok looked in diagnostics and it says is running and on automatic. Did a complete unistall of the lexmark software and that hung for 4 hours till i shut it down. So manually i went in and deleted anything associated with lexmark registry included.

Next day i thought i would give it another try so i restart computer and do a search and it finds the printer and installs a lexmark z700-900 p700-900 driver and software from the windows update sight. Printer shows up and test page prints just like it should. I do a test and print off a microsoft word file and all is good. Reboot. Now i can see the printer. Can adjust the printer properties. Yet everything i send to the printer flashes in the print queqe for a sec and deletes saying it was printed. The size of these files are 8 bytes.

I am on a dual boot system
I have windows xp installed on a c drive.
I have a backupdrive d.
I have a backup partition on c called h.
I have a tetrabyte hard drive called g where windows 7 is installed.
I have a q9650 processor with 4 gig s of ram
I have a 9800gtx+ 1 gig video card.

I can print in xp fine the printer is hooked to the usb and it turns on and prints well.
In windows 7 and in windows xp when i shut the computer down the printer shuts off also.

I have installed the windows xp driver which actually worked also till reboot. I have installed the windows vista driver that is recommended from the updater and it would not even see the printer. I after cleaning out the registry again get windows update to find that driver and it worked until reboot and at least i can still communicate with the printer.

But still cannot print. Also want to add that ive spent a good 8 hours on this researching and this seems to be an issue with alot of people. Especially with windows 7 recognizing supposedly compatible devices. Seems someone was over optimistic or manufacturers deceived in placing their equipment on the list.

Oh also i have microsoft office installed and microsoft outlook which printed fine also before reboot. I am currently looking through the forums for any other things to do. I am figuring that probably going to have to upgrade my printer due to fact that it would only cost me 50 bucks more than ink for this one. But i should not have to if its on compatible list.
