URGENT Printing problems on PRODUCTION

I have printers problem.

All in sp01 for all printers is in "waiting"(frontend unavailable)-this could be from jobs end sent to "locl"


(this is tested by me personally)"error"(Incorrect (SAPLPD reported error))when a simple printout of printers in "SPAD" is sent to a "named printer".

However when I test(check function in SPAD) this device with "error" I get no problem

Basically no printouts on production. What to do ?

This stands in log for mentioned simple printout:

SAP spool error log


Print request processing log

The host spool is reporting errors

SAPLPD has reported problems:

    This can happen if there are compatibility problems for the device type that you have selected for the printer.

    Also if the device type allows the printer tobe selected by the user through a pop-up, such prints when issued from a transaction document generally stay in spool with the error that you mentioned..

    but if you manually re-process the message from sp01, teh output shall get issued.

    if this is the case with you, try not to have 1 to many )output devices to physical printers)
