Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

3 Answers

HP laserjet 1020 one page only when usinga printserver.

If I hook up the HP laserjet 1020 to a print server with a wireless router, it prints a single page from each computer sending to the router then the computers hang up if subsequent print jobs are sent, hung up meaning they just pile up in the print spooler. If I then hook the printer directly to the computers with a cable, works great every time. Hooked up a second HP 1020 to the print server, same problem. I have tried different print servers, but the problem is the same. I took a different model of HP printer. Worked great for multiple prints. No hang ups. But if I use a printer server, I get one page and then it stops. I have to reattach the printer directly to the computer and print a page, then I can hook it back up to the print server for another page. Alternating hookups between page prints wont work though. My goal is to have a class with 6 portable computers with internal wireless links and one printer hooked to a wireless router/print server. Come into the class room, set up the printer with the associated wireless router/print server and let the 6 teams share the printer. This setup works fine with other printers, even other HP printers, but not with the HP laserjet 1020. Too bad because I really like that printer, small and easy to ship between classes, fast and good quality prints. Any ideas how to make this work?

I have same problem and have just learned that HP LaserJet 1020 is a host-based (i.e. GDI-based) printer that makes use of the processing power of the host it is hooked up locally to. No GDI based printers works with print servers.

Check that you do not have a firewall working. Set the printer by inputting the Ip or printer name when installing, do not browse for printer.

Cannot print on shared printer

I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
