Re: not printing continously

It could be an IP Address Conflict. I had the same problem (the address was conflicting with my ADSL Router) and hence the printer was acting funny and the net wasnt working.

But now the net s working fine as i've chenged the routers IP Address but the printer still isnt printing. Hopefullly I find a solution. Further, the printer does print directly to the USB Port, however the spooling can take forever on it for some weird reason.

Hp2420n printer does not print. Is connected directly onto a network. has ip address respons to ping.

please perform a power reset.

To perform a power reset you need to
1. Disconnect all the power cords connected to your printer (i.e the power cord and the USB cable.)
2. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. (this will remove the static energy if any accumulated in the printer.)
3. Connect the cables to the printer.
4. Restart the printer and try printing a page.

If it does not work please reinstall the drivers.

The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

HP 2420 keep printer wrong characters


This could be due to corrupt file or print job irrespective to file. This can also be an issue with the network sending packets or print spooler.

However, i would suggest to upgrade the driver to UPD (universal printing driver) PCL6

Please let me know the next update.

My HP LJ 2420 printer always lost network connection


I would recommend replacing the JetDirect card in your printer. What model is the card? The 600, 610 and 615 can be replaced with a newer 620. Make note of all of the IP address info before replacing the JetDirect card. If you send more detailed info, I can make sure that I send the correct info that you need.

Try this and let me know what happens. Binary Bob
