Is the paper size correct in your OS (Operating System) printer configuration menu??? (Windows/Linux)... check for a paper JAM in the printer... what are you trying to print??? (pdf, jpg, doc, xls, etc...) if you do a PRINT TEST from the OS PRINT MANAGER does it work???, if you do a DEMO TEST PAGE from the printer does it work??? I need more information to help, it could be a bad DRIVER, bad CONFIGURATION, a BAD SENSOR in the printer it self, have you power cycle (turn OFF than ON) the printer???
Looks like this is second printer installed on ur lappy... if that is so open Printers and Faxes and make ur laser jet 5 as default printer. Can give more accurate solution if u'll mention what error msg u got...
