I just did this and my (well, one of them) is working now. Thank You. I
installed SP2 some time back and no trouble until today. It also kept saying
"RPC server unavailable". Will try the other printer when I reboot.
Thank You again,

If no joy, try starting the RPC service first and then the spooler
service.

From the command prompt (cmd)
net start RPCSS
net start spooler

Press enter after each line. If the RPC service is already started, you
will get a return message.

Let us know.
