    Hi Brian,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.




    • Did you make any changes prior to the issue?


    I understand your concern however, I would suggest you to run Print Troubleshooter. The built-in Printer Troubleshooter can automatically detect and fix most of the incorrect settings and errors that could cause issues while
    printing. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if there is any issue with the sound. Refer top these steps:

    • Click on Troubleshooting and select the
      view all option on the left pane.
    • Click on Printer troubleshooter and follow the online instructions.


    Post that make sure that the Print Spooler service is enabled.


    • Press Windows +
      R
      and type in services.msc then press Enter

    • Right-click the Print spooler service, and then click
      Properties.

    • Now stop and start the service.
