View Full Version : Printer Paused on Computer Restart

04-01-2013, 09:19 AM
When I reboot my computer my default printer always comes up in Paused mode. If I try to un-pause the printer from the "See what's printing" window it switches back to Pause mode. I have to send a print job to the printer before I can un-pause the printer. From then on printing is fine until I reboot. The Windows Print Spooler service is set for Automatic on start up. How can I fix this problem so that the printer is not Paused on start up? I have tried reloading printer drivers with no improvement.
Operating System: Windows 7 32 bit
Printer: HP Officejet 6500 with USB connection to computer

Have you tried going into "Devices & Printers etc" on your start up panel and select "see what's printing" and you should see a small window open and show this has been sent to your printer and is still in the printer's memory.
Delete that and you should be fine
