what does "printer is not spooling" mean?

What does "printer is not spooling" mean?    This is the message that I get when trying to print.  I have a photosmart plus 290 series.  I do need new black ink.  Could that be a problem?

Could be due to spooling service. Please try "FixIt" from this link:
