Fix the Printer Needs User Intervention Error in Windows 10

While using the printer you must have at least come across the user intervention error. This error flashes either at the top display panel of the printer or in the dialogue window. This happens with most laser printers due to the problem with the spooler and when the printer job goes wrong.

You can fix this error by doing certain things like checking the connection, performing a restart, checking the status of the services, cancelling the print jobs in the cube, restarting the process of printing for the documents, and switching the USB port. With the help of all of these steps, you can resolve the user intervention error in your Windows 10. 

How to Fix This Printer Needs User Intervention Problem in Windows 10?

1. Check Connections

Examine the Printer for any flashing lights and double-check that all connections are safe.

2. Reconnect the Printer; Restart the PC

Turn on the Printer. Remove the power cord from both the Printer and the power source. Please pause for a moment. In the meantime, reboot your machine. Plug the cable into the wall power source and then into the back of the Printer after the machine has booted to the desktop, and then switch on the Printer.

3. Check Service status

To open the Open Services Manager, type services. msc and see if the Spooler Service is operating.

Start it if you haven't already. Restart the Windows Service if it is already running. Run the Print Spooler Cleanup Diagnostic from Microsoft if you're having problems with the Service.

It removes print processors and monitors that Microsoft doesn't make. It also gathers basic information about the print spooler and the device, such as print drivers, printers, basic networking, and failover clustering, and provides various cleanup modes.

4. Cancel Print Queue

The Print queue can be reset or cancelled. Check to see if this is of help.

5. Restart printing of the document

See if restarting the printing of the paper helps. Open Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Devices and Printers to accomplish this.

Pick the Printer, right-click it, and choose to see what's printing from the menu. Select Restart from the Document tab in the Print Driver Status box that appears.

6. Check for Driver Updates

Check the manufacturer's website for any available driver updates for your Printer. Click Printer and then Update Driver in the same Print Driver status window.

7. Check Printer settings

Ensure the Pause Printing and Use Printer Offline entries are unchecked under the Printer tab while you're there.

8. Switch the USB Port

If the printer is connected locally, try switching the USB port.
