Spooler SubSystem App Error

By Twiggzzler ·
I work for a silkscreen company and we rely heavily on our Epson Stylus Photo 1400 for opaque black ink on transparent film for exposing our screens. This morning it began giving me the message "Spooler SubSystem App has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" after printing the first or second page of multi-page files in Illustrator. Then, it started the message as soon as I would try to print anything and not print at all. The details of the error message are -

szAppName : spoolsv.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.5512
szModName : E_FJBCBUA.DLL szModVer : offset : 00005fdd

I am using Windows XP. I have already tried Control Panel-Performance-Administrative Tools-Services- and making sure the spool system is on automatic, would restart with every fail, etc. I have also tried completely uninstalling the printer and drivers and reinstalling fresh. I have tried two different printer cables. I have tried this printer on a new computer with Windows 7, as well as another computer with XP. This was the first and only printer that has ever been used on the Windows 7 computer and I installed the correct drivers. Each time, it will print a page or two, give me the spooling error, and never want to print again. The XP computer is the one I use for work, the Windows 7 computer is my personal PC that I brought in to troubleshoot. I see it as a bad sign that the printer will not work with either machine. Is there any other option I can try? Is the printer itself going bad? I have been beating my head against a wall. Please let me know if there is anything else I can try or if it may just be the printer itself going down hill.

Try reposting this using the 'Ask a Question' button. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

On the 'Questions' forum you'll find TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. You'll find more of those members in 'Questions' than here in 'Discussions'.

Additional benefits to the membership include:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions co-mingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.
