Win 7 printer problems
Feb 21, 2013

Win 7 HP LaserJet printer was installed on one desktop computer and told to share with others on the Home Network.  Worked for a while then the other computers could see it but would not print anything sent to the printer.  Comes up as an error and have to cancel the job in Printer Properties.  On one of the computers the print properties says that there are two jobs in the Que, but when I look up under prints in the Que, there are none shown. Ran the Trouble Shooter and said there was a problem, but did not fix it and said to go to the Community, Microsoft, etc for a solution.

Then I added the printer (network capable) to the router direct and this method worked for a while.  Now one of the computers can see the printer and send a document to it for printing, but now this print job comes up as an error again and I have to cancel the print job in Que.

When I had all the computers on Win XP. I did not have these problems.

What is going wrong in Win 7, for doing printing on the network?
