I've been seeing this error for weeks but the users tell me that they are NOT having any printing problems.  

How do I stop the error?

The document rptServiceAcctTransactions, owned by tbarker, failed to print on printer HP_P2035n_FrontCounter. Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.
Data type: IMF. Size of the spool file in bytes: 30451. Number of bytes printed: 30451. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: SPCALA142. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 0. The operation completed successfully.

Have you tried stopping the spooler and deleting any failed print jobs from the spool location?

Do this when it won't impact the business as all printers won't work on the print server when you stop the spooler.

OK, I just did it.  There were old jobs in there.  How do I clear the log?  See attached.  There is no "clear log" choice.

Hi

You can't clear this ,log only, because it is a view of system log. Whent the system log will overwrite the events, it will be OK. Or you can clear the system log, (but keep a saved copy just in case...)

Go to Applications and Services Log > Microsoft > Windows > PrintServices and clear the log from there.

@stoner79, that worked.  I'll leave this open a few days to make sure it is solved.

I just checked and the error is still there.  Nothing was in the print spooler folder.

Can you put the full details of the error on here (open the error, and copy it to text)?

I cleared the log and the users won't be back until Wednesday.  I'll post it after they return.

If it's just one user having an issue, it's probably something in their document causing the problem.

You could try a driver update on that client (or even a different PCL version) to see if that works.

It is three.  I think it might be when they print to the Okidata impact printer we use for contracts.  It takes a while to print.  Could that be it?

I would think it was printing to 'HP_P2035n_FrontCounter' as mentioned in the error.

I've seen documents fail to print with certain drivers, although they usually sit in the print queue unable to print.

This is a similar error which has some troubleshooting steps - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd393167%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
