    What printer brand and model is it printing to?
    Are all 50 of your booths running Sparkbooth with the same issue?

    It does not sound like a Sparkbooth issue, since the prints are going into
    the print queue. Is it showing any errors in the print queue? Is the print
    queue paused?
    Some printers will create a new instance of the printer if plugged into a
    different USB port, if that is the case - you could be printing to a
    disconnected printer.

    Then its an issue with your laptop spark booth only send the print to I see your using the RX1 I have one and I can tell you that the RX1 will work only on the USB port that was first used when you set it up. that's why its very important to always plug into that same port all the time my son did a gig once and he connected to another usb and for some reason the printer started having problem until we caught it.
