Printers fail for a variety of reasons. The most common is, Out Of Paper (no kidding). With network printing becoming common, the user can't see the printer in front of their face. They print, expecting to see the work. Surprise!
It is common, when printing in Windows, to spool the print job to a hard drive either remotely or locally, then have the printer begin printing. Unless the Network Operating System is setup to notify the user the printer has an issue -- such as no paper, how would the user know?
Other printer issues include permissions.
