Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question! Could you advise what operating system you have? The normal solution for this is to stop and restart the printer spooling service, I can help you find where that is once I know your operating system

So using the search function, can you locate "Services"
Expert:  A. Stevens replied 1 year ago.
Once you locate Services, scroll on the list until you locate "Print Spooler" - right click on it and select Restart

Sorry Mr Stevens, I don't quite understand where to look - do you mean on the printer, in which case I cant find a search function. ?
Expert:  A. Stevens replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, this would be on your laptop
Expert:  A. Stevens replied 1 year ago.
Here is a video on how to do this (although it is from HP, this is actually just applied to Windows 8.1 and not HP specifically so no worries) http://www8.hp.com/h20621/video-gallery/us/en/customer-care/1851651070001/restarting-the-print-spooler-in-windows-8/video/
