What I would do, is go out the www.hp.com/#support. Download the latest drivers. Install them and start printing again. If it fails again, print a config page. If that prints correctly, that tells you that the printer is working correctly. Problem is with the interface. If you are using the parallel interface, try a different cable. If you are using the jet direct try a different one and a different cable. Could also be a bad formatter. Good luck
serial to usb is not plug and play so i don't believe this configuration will ever work.
parrallel to usb is plug and play 90% of the time.
purchasing and installing a port replicator is a 100% fix as long as the formatter on the printer is working properly. good luck!
How is the machine connected? try changing the data cable if this doesn't work then shutdown your computer while the machine is on and reboot as if it is connected via LPT port some systems like to have the printer on before the computer.
Try this and I hope it helps if it doesn't then you might have a faulty print formatter board. Thanks J
