Reasons a printer gets stuck during the process of deleting
Why does a printer get stuck in the deletion process?
Printer is a device that helps in printing text or illustrations on paper or transparencies. A printer actually interacts or communicates with a computer and receives data from it to start printing. There are different kinds of printers available in the market. Printers are based on technology employed and they are classified as daisy wheel, dot matrix, inkjet, laser, LCD and LED, line printer or thermal printer. A printer is mainly used as a local peripheral and is attached by a printer cable or a USB cable to a computer which functions as a document source.
Reasons that cause a printer to stuck while deleting:
- Issues due to Print Spooler
- Incompatible drivers
- Due to malware
Issues due to Print Spooler
Print Spooler is important software for printers. Print Spooler is automatically installed according to the printer make and model. When the 'Delete' command is given to the printer then sometimes, it may automatically stop. This issue may persist till Print Spooler is reinstalled. You can fix the issue by installing the necessary printer drivers and fixing the registry errors on your computer.
When the 'Delete' command is given to the printer, it is sent through the printer software. The issue is caused due to no printer drivers being installed or incompatible printer drivers installed on your computer. To fix this issue, you need to install the necessary printer drivers and make sure that you install Operating System and printer compatible drivers.
Printers may get stuck in the process of deleting when there is malware on the computer. Malware may be running on your computer and may create problems with your printer software or printer drivers. To fix this problem, you will need to update your antivirus program and clean the system.
