I have an HP LaserJet Pro MFP M127fn that I can scan with and I can see it but I can not print to it. I can hook up to it through my Browser and the status shows as Ready. It is hooked up via my network so it has an IP address.
When I go to print the text page it errors out. When I go to clear the print spooler there is always one .tmp file that won't delete because it says "the file is open in printfilterpipelinesvc.exe" I can't find that service anywhere in the Computer Management Services or in the Task Manager Services. I can't delete the file until I actually Disable the Print Spool service. Then I can delete the file. I have tried to go into the Printer Properties, on the Advanced Tab, and then in the Print Processor page and tried all of the Print Processors listed. None of them worked. Initially it was set to winprint with the Default data type set to RAW. I left the Default data type setting alone.
I don't know what to try anymore. I feel like maybe I should be able to delete the "printfilterpipelinesvc.exe" file but I don't know where to find it. I am also afraid of wrecking something else. My other printers are working fine.
