Question about HP LaserJet 3330 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Network printer stopped printing

I have the following setup:

HP LaserJet 3330 All-in-one printer
Asus WL-500g Deluxe router
Home network with Win XP computers

The printer is set up as a network printer connected to the USB port on the router. Worked perfectly for years, no problem. Even at times when the computers are having network issues and can't see each other, there was never a problem with any computer on the network printing.

Suddenly the printer stopped responding to any computer trying to print. Each time there is a printer timeout error.

The printer is still visible to the network. I deleted the printer from my list and then used the "add new printer" wizard. Windows correctly detected and re-installed the network printer. But attempts to print a test page fail.

Yes, I have turned the printer and router on and off many times. But still no joy. The printer drivers are all the current ones.

No settings were changed. The only thing different about the computers that try to print, since yesterday, was the latest set of Windows updates.

I am EXTREMELY reluctant to uninstall Windows updates, since I had a major bad experience once doing so. It made such a mess that I couldn't even reboot and had to reinstall the entire Windows OS all over again. So I will not try that as a solution.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for the suggestion. Turning off all firewalls didn't help. In any case, the router IP, which is what the printer IP also is (as per manufacturer's instructions), is set in ZoneAlarm to be "trusted". And I never have Windows Firewall on.



    I really prefer not to do a system restore. Clearly Windows updates are there for a reason, and I prefer to keep my computer secure. Yes, I'm being stubborn on this point, I know. Is there anything in the network settings or the router settings I should be looking at?

Try disabling the firewall on your computers. You may also try to do a system restore prior to installing the windows update and check if you will be able to print.

HP LaserJet 3330 will not print multiple copies


Does this happen only with some documents/software? I have a different HP printer (a LaserJet) that does the same thing only with PDFs printed from another program. (This happens with PaperPort and browsers using the Adobe Reader plug-in, for example.) If I open Adobe Reader and then open the document in question, I can print multiple copies correctly.

I hope this helps.

Five computers networked with Linksys WRT320N router. Operating systems: Win 7.0 on 3 computers (two hardwired)(one laptop - wireless), Snow Leopard 10.8 on 1 (wireless), and XP on one (wireless). Also...


Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

How to install hp laserjet p1505n network printer in windows 98


I can not find a win 98 driver for your printer on the HP website. DO yu have the instalation disk that was writen for win 98? If not try installing the printer through  the control panel. Either printers/fax or through install new hardware.The first being the preference. Some of the win OSs have printr drivers already installed.
If this does not work out, then the printer has no drivr available for that version of windows and you ewither have to upgrade to Xp or use a different printer which has a driver for win 98.

Cant print in my network


I am having a similiar network problem, I setup the 2600n on my small-office network, plugging it into an 8 port switch along with a computer and IP camera....then connected the switch to the default router...this worked for a while as my router provided the printer an internal IP, but somehow the IP reset itself to an external IP,and print jobs I send now to the 2600n from my network will not print. I can't seem to access a configuration window to set a static IP address my router will recognize.
