    Check the step by step for printer spooling.
    1. If network printer, ping the printer address to ensure that the network is connected
    2. Asked if someone changed the printer settings, with particular attention to whether the printer is set to do the energy saving.
    3. Check whether the ink was not.
    4. Double-click the printer icon, and abolish the "use printer offline", choose Print Online.
    5. Download the latest network printer driver - "Disconnect the printer network -" re-starting the printer - "the server to delete the printer -" printer networking - "Add Printer (updated driver) -" Print a test page (if the printer is no point response definitely not work).
    6. Check the printer network connector, parallel port device is connected (including the parallel data lines), best to go the same equipment for a try.
