Print Spooler Error Code 1067

Q: Print Spooler Error Code 1067

Okay guys...I'm about ready to shoot something.

I've been at this for 3 full days. The problem is basically the Print Spooler keeps shutting off. I've done all the basics (i.e. set startup to automatic, subsequent failures, etc...). In the event log, there are 5 error codes the persistently show up that are the cause, but I don't know how to go about fixing them.

They are:

Error Service Control Manager 7031

The Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 14 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

Error Microsoft-Windows-PrintService 503
Routing print spooler command(s) The system failed to initialize the local print provider: Error 0x7e. This can occur because of system instability or a lack of system resources.

Error Microsoft-Windows-PrintService 511

Routing print spooler command(s) The print spooler cannot start because the PrinterBusEnumerator could not start. Error code 0x80040154. This can occur because of system instability or a lack of system resources.
These show up repeatedly in the same order everytime I try to start Print Spooler.

Also, my printers don't show up in Devices and Printers.

I have a Lenovo Y560p with Windows 7 x64

PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

What happens when you run this Microsoft.com Fixit? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Troubleshoot-printer-problems
 
Have you tried uninstalling the printer software for the Lenovo?  You may have to go into Regedit to the following key, to delete the printer from the Registry, if it does not remove when you uninstall the software HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows x64\Drivers
 
Sometimes updates for Windows cause problems, other times it is the mfg of the product, that screws things up.  There is no really easy fix, when it comes to fixing printer or scanner issues.

Hello. I could really use the print option of my OS.  Unfortunately, my printer is gone from the Printers applet and I can't add a new one because either the print spooler crashed or I get error code 0x000006BE if I manually restart the spooler and try to add the printer.So.... Any ideas how to fix this.  I removed my printer drivers, have no printer hooked up and still get the same results.Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Can't add printer. Print Spooler crashes. Error code 0x000006be

This behavior occurs if existed printer drivers are corrupt. I suggest that you remove all the installed printers and reinstall the useful printer.

Right-click on the blank part of the window, and choose "Run as administrator"->"Server Properties". 4. On the Drivers tab, select the listed printers and click the Remove button. Please then select Remove driver and driver package.5. Open Start menu, input APPWIZ.CPL in the Search box and press ENTER to launch "Programs and Features".6. Try to remove all related printer software.
If the issue is not resolved, I suggest that you clear the printing sub system.
Step 1======Start Windows Explorer, and then rename all files and folders in the following two folders: c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86  To rename a file, we can right click the file and select Rename. Step 2 ======1.

I have noticed a strange error in Event Viewer relating to printing.

Every time I print a document two identical errors are produced in the Event Viewer as below:-

The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module C:\Windows\system32\spool\DRIVERS\x64\3\E_IUICHQE.D​LL, error code 0xc1. See the event user data for context information.

The printer works fine - its not slow to start and all seems OK.

The printer is an Epson Stylus Photo PX730WD. It is connected wirelessly to a Belkin router. The computer has a wired connection to the router.

The printer works fine with networked laptops & even a wireless Samsung galaxy NOTE Tablet.

The above mentioned DLL file exists in the stated directory. It is an Application Extension For Epson Colour Printing System.

As everything seems to be working OK, is there any way I can stop these errors from appearing ?

Regards,

Nick.

A:The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module - Error Code 0xc1

Hi ... You could try Uninstalling the Software for the Printer ...

And then Re-Install ... Though if i was having this issue as every thing seems to working ...

Greetings

Look in your Event Viewer (Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Event Viewer) and look for an Icon with a red circle and a white cross in it. These are your error messages. Find the one that describes your printsvr problem and see what it says. If it still makes no sense, then post the full text of the message, plus it's Event ID number.

Cheers

Okay, so I have tried everything that is available currently even close to this particular issue; even a great video posted by this forum that I really thought was going to solve the problem but still did not.
There are currently no printers listed and there is in fact no printer option in the ‘Device Manager’ settings either. Could this be a virus? It occurred just after a Windows Update and upon the installation of Webroot security software from Best Buy. My Windows Restore is not functioning either.

Here is a list of what I have utilized up to this point:

Hi - First let me admit I've not read all the links you provided. You did say this issue occurred after a Windows update and Webroot installation. Have you tried uninstalling the Windows updates then reboot? You might try that because you can always reinstall. Same goes with Webroot.

Because there is not a printer in your Device Manager have you tried to install a new driver for your printer? It could be the Windows update does not play nice with your printer.

Good luck.

The other day I tried to print a file and got the print spooler stopped msg, did my best to follow all the great tips in a previous post (568893). I've removed all printer drivers, used cleanspl.exe to empty my print spooler, updated to Win service pak 3 so I could run fix-it. Didn't help, my spooler stopped itself before fix-it got very far and fix-it said I needed to restart my print spooler to fix the problem. I restarted the spooler manually and ran fix-it again and it said I have no printer installed. But of course I can not install a printer because the install software says my print spooler isn't running. I restart spooler again manually, try to install the printer again and the spooler stops itself, and my printer install software says the spooler isn't running again. Can't tell you how frustrating this is. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

"go to start --> run --> type in "regedit" without the quotes, and from there you can navigate the
path that I gave you.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\PRINT\

then you check the providers folder and delete the ones that aren't the defaults.

Defaults are: LanMan Print Services and Internet Print Provider"

I then was able to start my spooler manually, reinstall my printer drivers, and am happily printing again.

Everyone's sharing put me on the right track. I did one final tweak in the registry before deleting any keys or should I say instead of deleting, and that was after looking at all values on the spooler to find LexBceS on the list as Dependant on this service and turned that on to Automatic as it turned out it was disabled. Unplugged my printer from the desktop and power source. Rebooted and plugged it back in and YES it was working and all my printers were restored to my list as well. You guys are the greatest!!!!!!

Hi,

While checking out the Event Viewer a few days ago I saw this entry:

The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module C:\Windows\system32\spool\DRIVERS\x64\3\UNIDRVUI.DLL, error code 0xc1. See the event user data for context information.

The printer is a HP C-5580 Photosmart All-In-One that I have been using for the last few years while using another computer with WinXP 32-bit.

First off ... I have to say I can get the printer to do most everything it did with my old WinXP. One of the things I can't do is check my ink levels as I could previously. I am just concerned about the above error message in Event Viewer.

The original software disk that came with it was for WinXP. However, when I hooked it up to this new computer running Win 7 it worked right away.
I tried downloading and installing a new Win 7 64-bit driver for it but got a fatal error while trying to install it.

I am wondering if I uninstall the printer via Device Manager and then reboot will the computer recognize it so I will still have a printer. Perhaps then it would ask me to reinstall the Win 7 64-bit driver I found for it.

Just curious if anyone has any suggestions as to how I might approach this error message.

Thanks and regards,

A:Print Spooler error in Event Viewer

Hi again,

I did a little more research on this print spooler error message and discovered the following:

(1) It only happens when I try printing something from the computer from the 'Open Office' file folder.

(2) If I print something from the same folder but specify 'Open with' ... 'Word Pad' it prints just fine and there is no error message in Event Viewer.

I will keep searching for the fix but if anyone has any suggestions after reading this update I would be glad to hear them.

I've checked folder c:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ and there is nothing.  I have also check in registry in HKEY_L_M\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\spooler for any additional dependences; there is no any. 
I don't know what else I can do.
Thanks in advance!

The DisplayName and Description values are correct (I think that was what we were looking at before) but the ImagePath

I would suggest to create the missing value.
First create a Restore Point.
Then open regedit and navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Spooler
registry key and right-click Spooler > New > Expandable String Value > then name the value
ImagePath then double-click ImagePath and type (or copy and paste) the following under "Value data":

Then press "OK"
Close regedit and see if you can start the Print Spooler service.

Hello, I am trying to install my new Canon Pixma MP 330 printer, and cannot install its software because of this error:
"Processing cannot be continued because the Print Spooler Service has been stopped."

It told me to restart so I restarted, which did not start the Print Spooler. I went to manage services and tried to start the Print Spooler, where it gave me "Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."

I looked up its properties, where I found that it is set to Automatic. The Print Spooler depends on Remote Procedure Call (RPC), and hpdj00 depends on the Print Spooler.

HP deskjet 5700 series was my old printer. I already uninstalled all of the HP Deskjet and Officejet software using its uninstallers, and I force uninstalled it all again using RevoProUninstaller. After the uninstalling and restarting, I still cannot start the Print Spooler, and continue to see the hpdj00 dependency and Error 2.
I can think of two possible explanations:
1. In uninstalling the HP printer software and deleting the leftover folders, I accidentally deleted a Print Spooler file that I need. Everything can be reinstalled from the HP CD or restored from the recycle bin, so this should be reversible.
2. Some piece of HP printer software is STILL on my computer, disabling the Print Spooler.
I have an HP Pavillion a1101n, Windows XP Home SP3.

The HP printer programs I uninstalled are: HP PSC & OfficeJet 4.7
HP Deskjet 5700 Series
HP Deskjet Printer Preload

I've searched everywhere and I can find nothing that actually helps.

The problem: The print spooler won't start when my computer comes on or when I try to start it from the services window. I get an error 1053 which says it didn't respond in a "timely fashion."
Steps I have taken (none worked):

1. I reset my computer.
2. I opened Run and did "sfc /scannow" which scanned but nothing seemed to happen.
3. I booted from my XP Installation CD and chose to repair windows (it had recognized that it was damaged). The repair was successful and fixed a few of my other problems but no print spooler.
4. I made sure lexbces worked and ran properly (even thought it wasn't listed as a dependent).
5. I removed all traces of lexbces.
6. I made sure RPC was working.
7. I ran the Microsoft Fixit program for the printer spooler. On light mode it processed but changed nothing. On full mode it "failed to process."
None of these helped at all. The spooler still will not start and I get the exact same error. I can't install my printer and I can't even frigging SCAN (all I actually want to do, I never print) Because photoshop won't make a TWAIN for my printer and when I select WIA Support it says that no WIA devices are connected.

I am running Windows 8.1 and have recently downloaded a new printer to my computer. My home printer was a HP and was working fine but at work I use a Canon MF4800. I thought I could have them both installed and designate where to print based on my location home/work. However, now I keep getting the message that my print spooler isn't working. I have gone into services.msc and made sure that the designated places are running, but am still unable to print. In my device manager it lists the Canon printer in my software devices category, rather than under printers.?? There are no printers listed under the printer category. But is I go into add a new device, I can see both printers although both are inactive. I need to be able to access both printers.

Hey everyone. Yesterday I tried to print a document and got an error that there were no printers installed. I checked and all three of my printers were uninstalled somehow...

I tried going to My Computer > Manage > Services and Applications > Services > and starting 'Print Spooler' but got the error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

From that point on, I have no ideas as to how to solve this problem. Please help =(

This just started happening this week out of nowhere.

Print Spooler will not start. I cannot start it manually. Hamachi (specfically LogMeIn Hamachi Tunneling Engine) service gives the same error. I haven't had any problems with any other services. Upon trying to start the two manually, I get the error 1503 "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.".

I've tried the following:
- System restore to a date I believe the spooler worked
- sfc /scannow (and in safe mode)
- Chkdsk (Auto fix errors)
- Windows Repair utility
- sc config spooler depend= RPCSS
- Bruce's Printing Pages (+ reinstalling printer)
- spoolsv.exe and .exe.mui are in their correct locations. Tried renaming .exe to .bak and the .exe.mui to .exe
- RPC services are running
- DCOM Server Process Launcher is running
- Tried cleanspl.exe but it refuses to work on NT 6.1
- Troubleshooted printer. Finds spooler service isn't running. Fails to start it

With Hamachi, I ended up reinstalling it then adding in a registry key as found on their help topic over the matter. Just so much easier using this to play Sven Coop and Synergy Coop (Half-Life1/2 mods).

The spooler, once it turned back on normally...I think that was after my first attempt with "sc config ...". Anyhow though, it's never sticking and staying on after a restart and further use.

Classes just started up for me, so I'm desperate to fix this now since its bothering me to no end, and I need my print... Read more

A:Services>Error 1503: Cannot start Print Spooler and others

Hey,
Try clearing out the Printer spooler folder,
Sometimes a corrupt print job can crash the print spooler services indefinitely, until it is manually cleared. Even though your printer may show 0 Print Jobs in queue
Hers how to:
Make sure the print spooler servies is stopped.
Click the start button, (bottom Left) Copy and paste the path below into the search programs and files bar,

C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS


This should open your spooler print jobs, If any files are showing in there, please delete them,
Then you will need to re-start the print spooler service:
Click on the Circle start button, This time, in the "search programs and files box"

Type: services.msc


Locate the printer spooler services - Right click it, and select Start.

Over the last week or so, I've had a number of issues that I've spent hours trying to solve, with no luck. I think they're either virus issues or registry issues - or both. Nothing I've tried so far has worked...

Right now, I can't open my Windows Control Panel at all. I click it, and it starts to open and then closes. I also can't open System Restore. I click it and nothing happens.

I also can't print anything, and all my printers have been removed (printer, PDF, etc.). When I try to print (or add a printer), I get an error saying the local print spooler service is not running.

And presumably unrelated, I also can't right-click any files of any kind anywhere in Windows. I get error "explorer.exe fatal application exit" saying module cannot be found, referencing Adobe CS4 Version Cue.

I tried a registry repair program, AVG anti-virus (which removed viruses, but made no improvement in these problems); ran MS OneCare anti-virus, and did a system restore a couple of days ago (when Restore was still opening). I also tried restarting in diagnostic mode, and there was no difference.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Hi mbradford101,

Yeah, it sounds like malware. Have you tried running SFC, Checkdisk.

Try DL Malwarebytes, Spybot SD. Run a full scan with those. Avast is good as well, you can run a boot time scan.
