HP LaserJet 2420 printing problem

When I try to print, the computer acts like it thinks the page printed, but nothing comes across to the printer. I have reloaded drivers and changed out USB cables but nothing has worked. When I do a standalone print test on the printer, it prints fine.

    I am not aware of any software, hardware, network, or system changes that occurred prior to the printer stopping working.



    I have never seen a case where the computer thinks that the page has printed but nothing shows up on the printer. If I do a test page, it says the test page has successfully completed.



    Thanks for you help.

I want duplex printing for hp 2420


The only way to duplex print on a standard 2420 is to print the first page, then take that page and re-insert it into the paper tray face up. Then print page 2 onto the back of page 1. If you want to automatically duplex print then you need a 2420DN printer which has the duplexing paper path as well as the formatter board with the duplex firmware.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
