Server 2003 Print Spooler

July 12, 2012 at 07:20:33
Specs: Windows Server 2003, 4GB
The print spooler stops when printing to the networked photocopier. Happens on random users occasionally but when it does it crashes all of the printers. I restart the service and refresh the printer list then it stops again. I start the spooler again and everything is back to normal. Very frustrating. Any ideas how to solve this one?

Re-installing the printer driver on all computers where it's required usually fixes print spooler problems.

Thanks for the reply.

It is a networked Panasonic Workio 6020 installed on Server 2003 and accessed by over 500 users. Only when some users print to it, it stops the spooler (quiet random). I have reinstalled it on the Server before with no improvement. Wondered if it was down to being and old machine / driver or a specific setting on the printer - any other ideas?
