Paper? Yes. Power? Yes. But the printer still doesn’t work! Most of you will regard this situation as machine fault or consumable damage. In fact, it may result from the poor connection between printer and computer as well as wrong settings. Some simple checks and setting changes can easily solve this problem.

 

Generally, printing failure will be caused by:

1. Printer drive problems

2. Print programme doesn’t run in the background

3. Connection problems between printer and computer

 

Today, Chipjet will teach you how to shoot troubles.

 

1. Check printer drive state

 

 

Click Devices and Printers in the Start menu

Choose See whats printing

Click Printer option and deselect Pause Printing and Use Printer Offline 

 

2. Restart Print Spooler Programme


 

 

Call up the Run command dialogue box and open services.msc

Find Print Spooler and select

Choose Automatic in Startup type and you can restart Print Spooler programme
