    I don't understand the compatibility issues, I look up HP web site and could find any driver for USB port for this model, any advice?



    A CD comes with the USB cable has only drivers for older OS Win Me, 2000, etc. nothing for XP or Vista



    The serial USB cable doesn't have any software come with it.



    thanks

HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Hp laser jet 4 plus prints only half the page then black pages then the other half with cryptic writing on pages over text


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

HP Laser Jet 4 Plus to iBook G4 serial to usb


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!

Emulex NetJet Print Server Problem


The standard port settings used when setting up a Printer Port is Port 9100 (TCP) when normally communicating with the Jet direct / LaserJet 4 plus printer.

However when using the Emulex Card it s default is Port 2501 (UDP). So within XP change the Port setting to 2501 and it then will communicate correctly.

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
