Question about HP LaserJet 6L Printer
I've tried a number of ways to get HP LaserJet 6L to communicate with Vista. Spent over 3 hours with still no luck.
On the HP website, they indicate that Windows Update in Vista will have the driver built in.
My question is:
1. What port do you use or do you create a new one?
On some forums, people claim this can be done, but for still cannot get this to go.
I have even tried taking off 'bi-drectional' support - nothing.
This is a solid printer and it would be such a waste.
Using a Parallel to USB cable
It can be done tested by Thoo personally 6L printer prints well on vista too
The printer end should be connected to 25 pin parallel cable, converted to the USB on the notebook end of the wiring
To solve your printing problems locate vista driver, since i have tested vista works fine on HP 6L printers
make sure you select the correct O/S and assign in to the USB virtual port 05
After installing my vista can print perfectly well on test printout
