  • Have you tried restarting the print spooler service?

    In Powershell try:

    Restart-Service Spooler

  • Hi,

    Meanwhile, run Printer Troubleshootor under Action Center\Troubleshooting\Programs\Printer, and check if it helps.

    Installing the latest driver for printer from the manufacture website。
