    Print queue full error - has anyone solved this?


    I can't print due to the "print queue full" error.

    Has anyone solved this? I have uninstalled an re-installed my printer drivers several times and had no luck.

    Printer says its ready but I cannot print from any application. Printing troubleshooter finds no problems.

    Thanks.

    Hello Azucho98, :)

    You might see if clearing the printer spooler queue may be able to sort this for you.

    I'm not sure what else to suggest other than seeing if maybe doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened may sort it.

    This may not help to solve the problem, but I have the same problem. My printer is connected to a computer through a usb port. So if I turn off the print spooler and do a direct connect to the printer I get a different message, "Unable to create a print job.' I can instruct the printer to scan a document. So the computer is definitely talking to the printer.

    I would suggest the problem does not lie with the print spooler.

    I re-installed the November update for windows 10 and still have the same issue. Printing from Windows 10 has been a nightmare.

    Looks like I'll have to completely re-install everything to get this working again. Really Microsoft?
