Are there firmware updates needed for the print devices? This may not explain why they stopped working after years of service, but could be they need an update to work with the newer version of the Windows OS.

2008 R2 or 2012 R2? Are the drivers for the printers, on the server, the latest and up to date?What does the event log say? There may be some events logged under why the print spooler service is failing.

no sir print spooler keep on working fine, and logs has no detail on printer logs

the sitaution is bit complex

but once we reboot server and client so offline status of hp/cannon printer change and user can print hapily

It sounds as if the print spooler is failing, hence the need for a reboot, but that isn't the only reason for reboot could be required. Are there power settings on the printer that turn it off, or put it to sleep after a certain amount of time has gone by?
