Spool area full on Mac 10.6.6 with LaserJet CM1415

I am longer able to print to my LaserJet CM1415.  I presume that is because of the error message saying "Spool Area Full".  I tried deleting the printer, and adding it back again, but this did not have any effect (I still get the "Spool Area Full" message).  Any ideas how to resolve this issue?

Re: Spool area full on Mac 10.6.6 with LaserJet CM1415

I received the same message on my Mac 10.6.6 with Photosmart C410a.  HP tech support led me through a time consuming process to verify and repair disk permissions, but it didn't resolve the issue.  I'll try talking to Apple now, but not the easy set-up process I was expecting!!!

Have y'all reset the printing system?:

- Sys Prefs, Print & Fax
- Right (control) click in the rectangle listing your printers and select Reset Printing System.
WARNING - this will delete ALL of your printers!
- Select the plus sign to re-add it. Look for the printer, select it and wait until the "Add" button becomes available. Click it.

I have the same problem Reset the printing system but no luck. I suspect it's a permissions thing.

OK, let's run with that.  Let's repair permissions:

 

Finder > Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility

Select the item just above "Macintosh HD"

Click "Repair Disk Permissions" on the bottom.

Actually, one of my document printed after 40 minutes.. The other didn't after that.

 

If someones finds the solution, let me know!

Re: Spool area full on Mac 10.6.6 with LaserJet CM1415

So I just ran the disk permission and repaired stuff, no luck, I am still getting the spool is full error. 

 

Macintosh OS 10.6.4. on an i7 iMac.

 

Is there a work around for this?

Re: Spool area full on Mac 10.6.4 with LaserJet 9050DN

First do a printer test and see if the paper path is working, its under diagnostics.

If that works, then go down to configure, select the factory rest option, this will reset the printer and its internal memory (turning the printer off/on won't work)... this will not mess up your pre-existing network configurations

 

I just did this.. and it worked.. it might work for you too!

Re: Spool area full on Mac 10.6.6 with LaserJet CM1415

Did you ever find a solution with the HP LaserJet 1415?  I was uanble to find a "diagnostics" setting on my printer or Mac to do the reset or "factory rest" as suggested.

I have searched for HP software updates - someone on another forum said this helped them - but none have appeared.  Do you hav any further suggestions?
