Recently I was trying to print a document but I got error from the printer “Collecting Printer Status error” message & I fixed it after some research. If you’re facing the same error then this is how you can fix it.
In your Operating System, open Search tool & search for “Services” as shown below.
Now look for “Print Spooler” as shown below.
Now right click on “Print Spooler” & click on “Restart” to restart the print spooler services as shown below.
This should fix the Collecting Printer Status error message.
