Why did my printer stop printing

my Epson printer stopped printing in the middle of a document and now will no longer print. The queue is empty, I have replaced the ink, I have run all the tests (which won't print out), rebooted, called it names, nothing will work. The document is sent to the printer and the printer acts like it's printing but the paper comes out either blank or with little tiny light marks on it. I have run the nozzle cleaning. WF2540

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

1. type "Services.msc" in search

2. Double-click "Printer Spooler" in "Services"

3. Click Stop and click OK.

4. type "%WINDIR%\system32\spool\printers" and delete everything in the spooler list


type "devices and printers" in search and select "devices and printers"

-Select your printer and right click and select "remove device"

-Then on top of the page on the menu bar click on "add printer"

* windows will now search for available printers connected to your computer through USB

* select the appropriate printer that you want to set up and click on add device


Now Unplug the printer from both your PC and its power source.

Press and hold power button for 10 seconds on the printer

Now plug it back in

try printing a draft now and let me know the results

Best Regards,

Steps were working up until 4 WITH %WINDIR%\system32\spool\printers

I got to system 32 and then spool with the options

The epson only worked for one print then decided to print blank pages.

All ink levels full I usually print BW anyways. Is this company software
