    Cannot print after 1803


    Several people I help with their computers have lost the ability to print after the April/May 2018 update to version 1803. Some of them tell me the problem 'fixed itself' after a couple days. Three people still cannot print after a couple weeks.

    One person has an HP Color Laserjet and a Savin Color Laserjet, both network printers. When trying to print to either printer, Windows immediately comes back with a message that says "problem initializing current printer - check settings". I have tried clearing the printer spool folder contents, uninstalling/reinstalling the printer software (also tried compatibility mode installation), and running the troubleshooter. Nothing has worked. Windows 'sees' the printers on the network, but doesn't even try to print to them. The Print Spool Service is set to automatic.

    A couple other computers have similar problems, with different printers attached.

    I cannot figure this out. The printers worked fine before the update. Any suggestions?

    :)

    Hey Prestonpdx,

    I would suggest you check if the print spooler is running. Start/Stop print spooler service. Follow the steps below.


    • Press Windows key + R, type services.msc
      and press Enter.

    • From the list, locate Print Spooler service.

    • Double click on the service and select Stop.

    • Restart the computer, repeat step 1&2.

    • Double click on the service and check if the service is started.
    Get back to us with the updated status, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the update and apologies for late response.

    • Are you able to print via Internet Explorer 11?

    I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps:

    • Click Print as PDF button.

    • Check if the document prints as expected.
    If the above steps did not work, try the next methods.

    Method 2: Set your printer as default.


    • Press Windows key and type
      Control Panel
      .
