  3. Error - Printing on Network printer

    We have 4 printers on our Windows print server. The server was migrated from win2k3 to 2k8 on friday. 3/4 printers are working great, the other is having issues. When trying to print a test page to it, it gets a job status of Error - Printing.

    When sending a small word document to it, it sends it to the printer, the queue is empty but nothing prints. If I goto the printer itself, it doesnt show any errors and I can print things such as information sheets and diagnostic files just fine.

    All four printers are the same model, all 4 have a static IP. I can ping the printer successfully. I've tried printing from both an XP machine and the print server itself. I tried removing and adding the printer on the print server. And lastly, uunplugged the printer for 30 seconds, plugged it back in.

    Any ideas?

  4. When Printing the printer opens a "Save Print Output As" file?

    Can't Print After Update to Windows 10, get "Save Print Output As..."

    I'm having the same problem. When I try to print, a window opens 'Save print output as......' with pdf as default.

    What's this about???? Print output is a piece of paper! And the file I'm printing from already has a filename.

    I've checked that my printer is set as default (it wasn't - but resetting it made no difference) and I've run the printer troubleshooter - but that found no faults.
