I have been having problems with printing to 2 USB printers: a Canon Pixma iP3000 and an HP OfficeJet 6110. I am running Windows XP Media Center 2005 (SP3). On the Canon Pixma, I can print a XP test page but anyting more elaborate than that stops printing before completion. On the HP printer, a Windows test page will print but in fits and spurts. The print queue for the HP shows that job toggles between Printing and Error. This behavior started in the last week. I have tried the following remedies:
- Moved the spool file to a new location.
- Removed and reinstalled both sets of print drivers
- Run a XP repair operation from the installation CD
- Performed a complete re-installation of XP
- Tried different USB cables
- Bypassed the USB hub and connected directly to the computer (HP Pavillion m7750n)
All of these remedies failed to solve the issue.
Below is sample error report from the XP Event Viewer:
"The document http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Peripherals/Printers_S
owned by XXXXX failed to print on printer Canon PIXMA iP3000. Data type: NT EMF 1.008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 786432. Number of bytes printed: 478292. Total number of pages in the document: 2. Number of pages printed: 1. Client machine: \\XXXXX. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 122 (0x7a)."
I have searched the web as well as EE and have not found a probable cause or solution. This system is our home print server so I need this issue resolved. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
