When Microsoft launched Windows 10 with lots of features in 2015, people could hardly resist upgrading their versions from 8.1. But many Epson printer users complain that they were not able to connect with printers. Their printers work perfectly on Windows 8.1. But after updating to Windows 10, the computers cannot communicate with the Epson printers and the Print Spooler is not starting. Print Spooler is the inbuilt Windows program that delivers commands of print, scan, and copies to the printer. When the Print Spooler not being able to open, then none of the commands can be executed.
In Windows 10, the Print Spooler cannot connect with the Epson printers. Whenever the users try to print, scan, or copy anything from the computers, it fails to open and a dialogue box appears with the error code 0x800706b9. In most cases, the error message comes along with the information that it does not have enough resources to start the Print Spooler Service.
There may be various reasons for the Error 0x800706b9. One of the major reasons is the corruption of the registry key or value while upgrading to Windows 10. Sometimes, the third-party firewall or antivirus blocks the operation of Print Spooler. Whatever the reason is, you have effective solutions to every problem here.
