    Network Printer

    First time I am posting.
    Hi all.
    I have a problem with one of the schools networked printer, only this morning it has for some reason not printing just comes up error-printing, I had look and just turned the printer off and on again, the print queue was cleared and everybody's jobs printed.
    30 minutes the later the same thing happened again, so I did the same again, and again it resolved itself.
    This has now happened again 3 more times.

    Any suggestions or help to what might be happening?

    It sounds like an issue with spooling. I'd check the print spooler on the server. Maybe restart the service?

    Also, do you have a good amount of free space left on your print server?

    I agree it sounds like the spooler. Open a command prompt:

    Code:
    net stop spooler
    
    net start spooler
