Question about HP LaserJet 5100 Printer
On the back of the printer where the network cable is plugged in, in your case it is EIO slot 1.
The problem could be the slot(EIO 1) or the JetDirect card that is plugged into that slot.
Power down and loosen the two screws on the JetDirect card and reseat it. Power up and try using the printer. If the error persists, power down and remove the JetDirect and plug it into EIO 2.
There are two screws that hold the EIO cover on. Power up and try the printer. If it works, take the two screws and the cover and use it to cover EIO 1. And you are good to go. If it fails again with a 81.02, the JetDirect may need changing
