    Local Printers Paused?

    Got a slight issue here. We got one or two of our computers that are connected to a usb printer. But it keep pausing the printers. Is there away of sorting this problem out?

    Cheers All

    How exactly is the printer wired up? Do you keep swapping the USB cable or is it connected to a PC and shared out?

    Try stopping and starting the spooler service on each machine.

    Start > Run > CMD

    type:

    Code:
    net stop spooler
    then:

    Code:
    net start spooler
    on both machines or the computer the printer is shared from.

    Just usb printer. Is shared out but when you print though the usb it keep pausing jobs. Will Try restarting the spool serivce. But the computer does get turned off at night and on again in the morning.

    If you still have problems after this, try looking for a new driver for your printer. Many new drivers out there are compatible with XP/Vista/7 x86 and x64 versions.

    Also might be a dodgy usb cable.

    Update:

    Windows xp and HP Laserjet 2200. Ive updated the drivers from HP website. So im now using HP Drivers insted of MS ones.

    Still havent had any luck. Ive tired all tick boxes. Uninstalled and reinstalled the printer and still no luck

    Any ideas? Seems to be driving me and user round the bend.

    Thanks
