Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

For this error turn off your printer .

Reboot your computer

And then start your printing all over again.

This error is when the printing service crashes.

If you still get the message printer spooler service not running.

Click start > click run > type in services.msc

Find the print spooler service

Double click on it

And click start service .

Then print .
