  1. remote printer stopped working

    My "host" PC is running Win10 with latest updates. There is a Canon printer hardwired to this "host" and it works fine from the host. I have a remote laptop, also running Win10 with latest updates. Up until about two weeks ago before ;latest update? I was able to print from the remote laptop.

    I now get the error message " Windows cannot print due to printer setup etc..." or variations thereof depending whether AVG is enabled or not

    I have tried the following with no success

    -run Win10 printer troubleshooting and followed directions

    -disabled AVG antivirus * remote access shield

    -restarted printer

    -restarted both computers multiple times

    -restarted network modem

    If I leave AVG Anivirus remote access shield enabled I get the message that AVG has blocked a remote access attempt. As previously stated if AVG is disabled, the problem persists. Yesterday I spent 30 min with AVG on-line support who also disabled AVG with no success

    Windows 10 Home Won't Print to Remote Printer

    I have three computers.
    Machine 1: Windows 10 pro, has the USB Brother HL-5040 printer
    Machine 2: Windows 10 pro, prints OK to the remote printer.
    Machine 3: Windows 10 home, Used to print, but not anymore (THIS IS THE PROBLEM).
    I’ve tried everything that I can think of, and would appreciate any suggestions.
    I did these steps on Machine 3 that did not work.

    1. Remove the printer device.
    2. Add a Printer
    3. The printer that I want isn’t listed
    4. Select a shared printer by name
    5. Browse
    6. Select the displayed Machine 1.
    7. Select the displayed Printer.
    8. Next
    9. Failure “Connect to Printer”.
    10. Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or Hostname
    11. Next
    12. Set Hostname to Machine 2, and set port name.
    13. Detecting TCP/IP Port
    14. Additional Port information required.
    15. Device Type – Standard, Brother Port Server
    16. Next
    17. Detecting the Driver Model
    18. Install The Print Driver
    19. Select Brother and Brother HL-5040
    20. Next
    21. Replace the Current Driver
    22. Printer Name (setting it to HL-5040)
    23. Next
    24. Do not share this printer
    25. Next
    26. You’ve successfully added “HL-5040”
    27. Finish
    Printing on Machine 3 puts the document in the print queue, which reports error printing.
    Printing from Machine 2 to the printer on Machine 1 works perfectly.
    All three machines are in the same HomeGroup. Machine 3 can access the shared files from Machine 1.

    Brother printer stopped working

    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 +
      and type in services.msc then press Enter

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

    • Now stop and start the service.
