Error in XP with Kodak printer.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am experiencing this problem since about last two weeks.

When I installed my Kodak printer it doesn’t even show up in the printers file.

The problem does not end here, in fact whenever I try to print anything I come up with the error message 1068.

I am using a brand new laptop with 80GB hard and 1GB RAM.

I have Windows XP.

Any help from you guys is appreciated.

Error in XP with Kodak printer.


The error you mentioned is caused by one or two windows services being disabled.

To fix it do according to following steps

  1. Go to start > Run and type in there services.msc
  2. You will see a list of services and description whether or not they are running.
  3. Right click the service that is causing this problem and change its startup type from disabled to automatic.

The error can also be due to a network card failure or the driver needs to be re-installed or upgraded. Try changing your network card and see if it solves the problem. If not then try reinstalling your net card drivers or upgrade those. You can get to services by going to start > Run and typing Services.Msc

The typical dependency is RPC service, so check that it is running properly. Double click the print spooler and click dependencies tab. If one of the services failed to load then the error is due to that and to resolve this you have to reinstall your operating system. Then find them in the services and make sure that they are set to automatic. Also to prevent errors from registered files, you are required to run a clean and error free registry.

And one last solution that worked in my case is.

  1. Start > Control panel > Administrative tools > Services
  2. Scroll down to Print spooler. Highlight it > double click right button to start
  3. Then scroll down to your device and see it is running. If not click to start

For print spooler error, follow steps.

  1. Go to run and type in there Regedit.exe and navigate to following branch.
  2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesSpooler
  3. In the right hand pane, double click the Depend on service value and delete existing data/entries.
  4. Close Regedit.exe and restart your system and your print spooler will be reactivated on restarting.

Now you should be in normal position.

Hope this will resolve your problem.
