My Printer Requires Attention

I have discovered this nifty little trick for my printer. For the past few months, I have been struggling to get my printer to print. Every time I print something, it does not do anything. I ran the typical Windows Printer troubleshooter but to no success until I found this solution in the forum.

Decided to document here for my own sake and share with you. The issue occurs when you try to print something and the printer won’t print. You check the printer status, you can see your file in the queue but it does not do anything. The title bar just says “Requires attention”.

The simple solution is you click your Windows search bar, type Run, then type services.msc.

Right click then click Stop, service will stop. then right click again and this time choose Start. The printer will start printing!
