  1. Print spooler error after update to Version 2004 of Windows 10


    Since my system was updated to the 2004 version of Windows 10, I am unable to print. In doing a test, I got a message that there was print spooler error at the print server. Is there a fix for this problem? Is Microsoft planning to do an update to correct the problem which seems to be widespread.

    :)

    Print Spooler Issue

    Hello Sree,

    For step by step instructions on how you can manually start the Print Spooler Service, follow these:

    • Click Windows tab.
    • Type Control Panel > System and Maintenance
      > Administrative Tools.
    • Double click Services.
    • Right click to the Print Spooler service > Properties.

    However, we suggest you can refer to an answer given by Prabhavathi Patil on this

    thread
    .

    We also recommend that you update the driver for your printer.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.

    Hi Bharanidharan,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums. I appreciate your effort in trying to fix the issue.

    The error code 0x800706BA indicates that the remote procedure call (RPC) server is unavailable.

    Provide us additional information to assist you better with this issue:

    1. Do you get this error only when printing to PDF or while printing to a physical printer as well?
    2. What is the error message you have received while trying to start the Print Spooler service?
    3. Which version of Windows is running on your device?

    You may refer the article Which Windows operating system am I running
    for the information.

    Regarding the issue with the Print Spooler service which is not starting, try the below suggested steps. As you have already verified the Spooler dependency services try the below command on a command prompt window to fix the issue.

      sc config spooler depend= RPCSS
    (Note the space after the = but not before)

    4. Restart the Print Spooler and check the status of the issue.

    Method 2

    You might have already tried this based on the troubleshooting article that you have mentioned. However, please let us know if you get the same error once you try the below mentioned steps.

    2. Double click on the Print Spooler service and click on

    Print Spooler Error 1068

    I followed the steps you provided. When I get to the general the spooler status is stopped, when I try to start

    and automatic is selected the Error 1068. If I try to update through HP, it stated that the spooler is not running.
