Question about HP LaserJet 1320n Printer
I am on Mac OS 5.5 Leopard; cannot get printer to print since I upgraded from Tiger; I believe I have up-to-date driver; jobs will spool to printer queue but then printer pauses; if I unpause it enough tines I get an alert: Operation could not be completed. client-error-not-possible.
I would be enormously grateful if anyone can help me. I have spoken with an HP rep and was told this printer is not compatible with Leopard (the rep told me it was only good with OS 10.3 however I have been using it with 10.4.11 with no problem which seemed to surprise her; her response was, well I'm not a technician) but have a friend with same set up and she has no problem.
Power off printer, disconnect all leads such as USB, network, etc and power on again.
Does it power on to the normal state?
Are there any messages on the control panel or light patterns (eg off, on, flashing etc)?

uninstall your printer and then re-install it that should fix your issue,it could be a bad version of an updated driver that is causing the problem

SOURCE: Printer keeps pausing itself!!
By UI do you mean RUI (Remote User Interface)? Have you installed a network kit? If so did you upgrade firmware using SST? If not, you need to do this or printing won't work.
In service mode. Copier > Display > Version > PS/PCL there needs to be a number e.g. 30.06. If there is no number the copier does not have any print drivers on it and won't be able to print. You also need to have a N BOOT-ROM (included in network kit). There Should be a N next to the number for BOOT-ROM under Copier > Display > Version if a N BOOT-ROM is installed.

I have seen this problem before. Basically what is happening is the fuser is losing it's heat. When the printer pauses it is waiting for the fuser to get back up to temperature. The first course of action would be to reinstall the print drivers. This will rule out the communication aspect. Then to replace the Fusing assembly (fuser) and if that doesn't work to replace the Power supply.
If it is the power supply it wouldn't be worth the time or money to repair the printer based on the original cost of the machine.
