Printing stops working for some reason
Posted on 2012-08-29
We have a Server 2008 R2 Standard (SP1) running as a Terminal server.
Every other day or every Sunday morning, users are unable to print for some reason.
When this happens:
- Print Spooler is still running, Restarting it crashes the service
- Devices and Printers list is empty,
- When trying to print something, print window just crashes
- Rebooting the server fixes it, but then the issue will happen again after a few days or on a Sunday.
Printers that are on the server:
HP Officejet Pro 8500
HP LaserJet 3055
HP Laserjet M1536dnf
HP Laserjet M1522nf
Zebra Designer TLP 2844
If you have any suggestions on what to check and might be causing this, let me know.
