  1. Printing issues after Win 10 update


    Friend did a Win 10 update Upgrade? then printer problems appeared but not right away. At first nothing would print PDF, Both sides of paper. All used to work fine. Uninstalled and reinstalled HP software. HP Smart now says Printer Status Unknown. It is a wireless connection. Driver was using WSD, I changed to TCPIP. When printing a pdf file, if I try to print > 2 pages, nothing prints - I see Windows spooler send file but immediately clears. Then the PDF app Foxit in this case dies and I have to restart it. I can print at most 2 pages but only 1 side and Windows spool file normally. Saw the Mar windows update issue but this doesn't match those symptoms. Windows topic below should be printing but it is not there

    :)

  2. Cannot print from network printer in Win 10

    Hi Ahmed,

    Thank you for responding.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you in accessing the printer on your device.

    Step 1: If the drive is being detected in Device Manager try the below to update the drivers:

    • Right click on Start button and select
      Device Manager.
    • Expand Print queues, right click on the drivers and click on
      Update driver software.
    • Restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Step 2: I suggest you to check the status of
    Print Spooler service and check.

    Print Spooler service, spools print service and handles interactions with the printer.
    If you turn off this service you won’t be able to print or see your printer.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows + R to open Run command, type
      Services.msc and press Enter.
    • Search for Printer Spooler service, right click on it and
      Start the service.
    • Also, set the Startup type to Automatic.
    • Now check if you are able to install the driver.

    Step 3: I suggest you to refer to the below thread, check if your issue matches with the same.

    If so, try the troubleshooting steps suggested by Greg Carmack - MS MVP
    on January 10, 2016 and check if it helps.

  3. Following Win 10 Update (1803): Unable to print (Printer offline message).

    Printer Samsung ML2950 Series.

    I have followed all the suggestions here: Fix printer problems

    None of them fix the problem.

    The printer is working fine. Another WIN 10 computer on the network is able to print to the printer without issue.

    Latest updates:

    • WIN 10 1803

    and

    • Security Update for Adobe Flash for Win 10 1803 KB4338832

    I uninstalled KB4338832 and the problem persists, so I presume that the problem is with the 1803 update (as that took around 2 hours to install, I'm reluctant to uninstall it to test it).
