Out of paper error on Windows 2000 Professional printer status.
Posted on 2006-06-23
Sometimes when I go to print a document to an HP Laserjet 2300 printer using Windows 2000 professioal SP4 the document doesn't print and there is no error message on the printer. I then check under start-settings-printers and notice the printer in question says out of paper, there is paper in the printer and no error message on the printer. The only way I can get it to print again is to restart the print spooler services. The printer is connected to the computer (HP Compaq d530 desktop) by a standard TCP/IP port. I have installed the latest drivers from HP's site which didn't fix the problem, it only seems to be a problem with this computer everyone else is fine.
