Print Error – Not Available

Computers and software just don’t stop to keep troubling you irrespective of the advancement in the computer technology.

On regular basis I come across new problems.

This time it was a combination of hardware and software problem.

I was trying to print a web page in Firefox in PDF and encountered this error.

Print Error: Not Available

Firefox: Print Error - Not Available
Firefox: Print Error – Not Available

I’ve never seen this error.

It happens all the time on that particular page. I opened a new tab in Firefox and I could print from there.

So the problem occurred only on that specific page.

How to solve Print Error –   Not Available

In the system tray double click on the Print icon to open printer window.

Cancel the print job
Cancel the print job

There you can see the document’s status is spooling. Right click on the document name Cancel it.

If you are lucky it will delete the print job and you can try printing again.

In my case it didn’t cancel the print job and It kept showing Deleting – Spooling status all the time.

So this method didn’t work.
