priinter issues

i have pc connected to a printer.  When I print to the printer, the job spools and appears to complete, but the printer throws an error light.

However, when I share the printer, other xp boxes can print the same document to the printer without issue even though it passes through the shared printer that I am having the trouble with.  

Why can others print via the share but the pc itself can't?  Any sugggestions?

Hi ASIADMIN,

Try detele the printer from your machine and reinstall the driver.

try "run" -> "services.msc"  and check printer spooler services is started and try restart it.

To completely remove the drivver, you need to do this:

Go to Start > Printers and Faxes. Delete the printer. Then, from the File menu, select Server Properties. Click on the Drivers tab, and remove the printer from the list.

Then reinstall.

Hmm, may be you can try to phsically connect your pinter to the machine that prints ok. Then share the printer and send print job from your current machine? See how that goes.
