    the problem is the same. tried with multiple computers and a print server. computers can see the printer, call it offline, and will not print to it. is the serial cable bad???

    When I send a word document to my HP Laserjet 4L, the document just sits in the queue. No lights flash and no sound comes from the printer. Test page prints fine, though. It's as if the document does not make it to printer memory.

    After a few minures I get an error message in print status window that says "Error - Printing"

    Thanks for your help! I do love my 4L!

Won't print from computer


Try borrowing another suitable printer lead and test with that. If the printer can do a self test, it is likely the printer is not the problem. If that does not work, if you can, use another printer with your computer - but set it up first. Failing that come back for more help

HP LaserJet 4L quit working It's connected to my PC and it's on. All 4 lights are on; 2 green and 2 orange. When I try to print, the paper goes through but nothing is printed on the paper.


Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

HP Support says “If the Ready light is blinking, and the Go light is on, it indicates Data in the printer memory is waiting to be printed. Pressing the GO button prints from Tray 1 or from another tray if Tray 1 is empty and the paper size is supported in the other Tray. Pressing the JOB CANCEL button cancels the current job and the printer returns to ready.
Make sure the paper size is correctly defined.

Problem with HP Laserjet 4L series


Take a moment and double click on that printer icon. That will open the Print Queue.

If there is a job sitting in the queue, then highlight it and delete it.

The image drum is not getting the correct signal at the correct time. It is time to retire the 4L and replace it with a newer, faster LaserJet. You'll be glad you did.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
