Devices and printers suspendusent/Print Spooler error causing printing issues

Hello fellow forum participants and Rangers.

As of recent, I had questions on our servers with regard to printing problems.  The problem would be to randomly appear and disappear without notice.  I tried to diagnose the problem by activating the event handler, but the event handler was not able to provide any specific error in addition "a timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a response from the spooler service transaction.  Whenever I try to open "devices and printers", the window would without constantly/eventually without loading anything.  I would also add that the problem starts when the user connecting.

I tried the things:

(1) sometimes restarting the PC would magically make it work.

(2) restart Printerspooler fix the problem

(3) automatic setting rather than manual Bluetooth function has failed.  (has worked for most of the people similar/same problem).

(4) we tried to reload the drivers.  Temporary solution, but the printing problem happen again.

Any help would be highly appreciated and sorry for the wall of text.  This question led me into the wall!  Thanks in advance.

PS. Windows 7 pro (32-bit) processor intel core 2 duo 2.2 GHz

  • No printer not appearing in devices and printers in Windows 7

    This is quite disconcerting, and after a thorough search, I can't find an answer to work.

    Basically, I installed a printer on my machine here Win7Pro.  The printer can be printed from various applications.  However, the printer does NOT appear under devices and printers.  The printer appears under print management.

    The printer is an Epson color Stylus 2200 connected via USB.  The computer is a Dell D620 Laptop.  Win7 has been properly installed - no upgrade.  The printer is visible (for example) of Corel Paint Shop Pro X 2.

    Anyone has any ideas what setting I need to enable the visibility of printer under devices and printers?  Is there something other wrong here?  It's easily fixable?

    UPDATE: I just added a shared printer (connected to a WinXP machine brother 7040) networking for this laptop Win7 and it isn't too visible under devices and printers.  However, what is different here is that this printer is also not visible under the management of printing.

    Network connections are not in print management.  They should appear in printers and devices IS very disconcerting.  Normally, this will occur if the print spooler service is not running, but then your local machine would be displayed with a red indicator in printing management.

    I guess that you have a standard USB and not a parallel converter cable USB cable.

    Check the security settings for the properties of the printer.  Make sure that your user account is listed at least print access.  Devices and printers opens with the standard user security token.

  • printer not shown in devices and printers - teacher of windows 7, 32 - bit

    I am running windows 7 Professional, and my parallel printer (hp laserjet 5 p) does not appear in my list of devices and printers. I can also access via my LAN.  It doesn't, however, work very well as my default printer. what I have to do to get on the list, I can change the attributes to share?

    launch printmanagement.msc, it is the tool provided by the spooler team to administer local printers

    Apparently the devices and printers will fire this printer on your computer if the parallel port is configured for the SPP.  If you right click on the computer in devices and printers, you can see the menu item printer properties there.    You can change the configuration of the BIOS of your computer.  If the parallel port is an addition on the map please let me know the manufacturer.

    But frankly printmanagement is a better solution.

  • Printer appears online in devices and printers, but in offline mode in the print dialog box

    After I plugged an inkjet printer from Canon iP4000 in my computer running Windows 7 SP 1 Ultimate 64 - bit edition, the printer is displayed correctly in devices and printers as a printer online but appears offline in print dialog common used by applications.

    Sometimes, I am able to print despite the problem, but as a general rule, the monitoring software will say that the printer does not Canon.

    In addition, a WiFi adapter sometimes loses the WiFi connection and is unable to find all the networks.

    Tried many things:

    • Uninstall of the printer
    • Manually clearing print jobs
    • Reset
    • Unplug the printer from a USB hub and connect directly to a USB port on the monitor

    I can not easily plug the printer to the computer directly because of the locations of the case of the printer and the computer. I tried to connect the printer directly to my ThinkPad and the printer does work very well in this situation.

    This who can I try to do at this point?

  • How to rename a new printer? I tried to access this feature in looking "devices and printers", but this process just turns around and shows me no devices or printers.

    The "Devices and printers" window does not work for me. It does not list devices that I currently have on my network. Although I can print from my printer, I want to rename it to distinguish it from another similar printer. How can I do this if the "Devices and printers" window does not work?


    ·          What kind of network you are connected to?

    To rename a printer, you must have permission to manage the printer. You probably have permission if you installed the printer. If you are on a corporate network, you may need to ask your system administrator.


  • "Devices and printers" do not show the printer on LPT1

    I recently added a printer on parallel port LPT1: on my PC running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit edition.  The installation was successful.  I can print a test page and you can use the printer from applications, including Notepad, Microsoft Word 2010, and command prompt.  I find it puzzling, however, that the printer does not appear in the list of printers in the "Devices and printers" Control Panel applet  Is this a bug in Windows?  Microsoft has a fix available?

    Hello Tony,.

    Thank you for your reply and sorry for the late reply.

    Sometimes, this problem appears when printers or other devices using the same driver and port on Windows. When you view the printers installed in "Devices and printers", you may notice that some of the printers or other devices are grouped and are associated with the same printer icon. Scenarios like two or more printers are installed using the same printer and installed driver with the same printer port (i.e. LPT1) shows this kind of behavior.

    I suggest you follow the steps described in the article below to get this matter resolved.

    Printers using the same driver and port on Windows are grouped as a reporting in devices and printers.

  • Cannot remove the icon of the printer generic devices and printers

    Title: Removing 'generic icon' page devices and printers in Control Panel

    I had reinstalled a HP Photosmart Premium printer and it worked last night, but this morning, I discovered that I was not able to print to the printer (the option for this printer was not available).

    I went to the control panel and the page devices and printers and clicked on "add a printer". However, I accidentally created a generic icon (printer, Scanner, copier) on this page.  I then added my printer and the icon that it is now on the page, but the generic icon is still there.  When I select this icon, I don't seem to be able to remove.

    It could be that this is a transient condition, but it's still annoying to have this icon (which is now useless).  What can I do?


    I suggest you follow the steps to remove the printer and install the printer wirelessly from the link and check if the problem persists.
