Different printer problems on Windows Vista operating system:
- Print spooler issues
- Out of ink
- Printer not responding
Print spooler issues
Sometimes you may encounter a print spooler issue with your printer. There are chances where the print spooler in the system shows errors due to very high CPU use. The documents to print in the queue do not print, slow system performance and disk space errors are some consequences of this issue. This causes the printing process to fail. You can fix this issue by downloading a print spooler repair tool.
Out of ink
Sometimes your printer may print blank pages if it is out ink or sometimes your printer may display messages if it is out of ink. So if you are facing such issues, you need to refill the ink in your printer. The communication problem with the printer and computer is also a reason for printing blank pages. So you need to check the USB cables and wires.
A printer that does not responding is also a problem. This happens if your system runs many applications or if the system performance and memory may be affected by malware. To fix this issue, try closing unwanted applications to fix the malwares issues. You will need to update your antivirus and run a deep system scan.
