Process to fix HP Printer Spooler Errors
Spooler error occurs because of a technical issue with the SPOOL.SVC operating system. In simple terms, this is the software that carries files through the operating system for printing. The SPOOL.SVC operating system needs to be active for you to be able to print or access the functions on your HP Printer.
The SPOOL.SVC file usually starts automatically as soon as you turn on your Windows device. If you find that the program is stuck you can try using the steps mentioned below to start the service again:
Step 1: Restart your Windows device and click on the ‘Start’ menu.
Step 2: Go to the ‘Files and Folders’ section and right-click ‘My Computer.’
Step 3: Select the ‘Manage’ option and proceed to the next step.
Step 4: Go to the left column and double click ‘Services and Applications.’
Step 5: Navigate to the ‘Services’ section and the ‘Print Spooler’ option.
Step 6: Highlight the spooler option on the list of Services.
Step 7: Click the ‘Start the Service’ button and check if the printer is working.
Keep in mind that the steps mentioned above should only be used for a Windows device. You should consult a customer service representative before you implement and solution. If you find that the spooler errors still occur and the spooler service cannot be started, then it is possible that there is a problem within the operating system itself.
