It is possible that this answer is no longer useful, however I want to leave here as I solved it since this question was the first result in my first google search.

In my case I arrived at this error since the space in my server was exhausted, when freeing space and restarting NPrinting services did not start the services. Luckily I found this link where they comment how to solve it:How to Resolve NPrinting Messenger Service Not Running and Not Starting - Public Knowledge Base - Co...

These are the automatic steps:


Check each point one at a time below individually and check if the Scheduler service is started after performing each individual step below:
