    This web site is crazy!

    I ended up fixing this problem my self (posted my own solution on the web site) and I still keep getting asked if I have found a solution! I am also being asked to rate the solution. Let me tell ya, it is real good!!!!!

    The only solution I received from the web site was a dud!

    Pity the administrators of this site didn't keep a look at what was happening!

I ended up fixing this problem myself.

I needed to set the printing resolution in the HP printing dialog box to 1200 x 1200 dpi as the HP2100 can print at this resolution.

Select: Print/Properties/Advanced/Graphics. Then set the printquality to 1200 x 1200 dpi.

If you are printing PDF coupons, that is probably the case, you need to upgrade the memory on the printer if you want faster printing on those types of documents.

Config page in hp2100

On the LaserJet 2100, press the Go and Stop buttons together, then let go, and the configuration page will print out. (You may have to hold them down for a couple of seconds.)

For configuration page instructions for other printers, see the How to Print Configuration Pages web site.

My printer is hp laserjet cp 1515n. After printing some documents it writes "printing cool down mode" and begins working very slowly. Please help me

1515n - I have the Magenta colour 'shadowing' the blue test. A mirror image of the blue text. [slightly staggered] Black is fine. Applies to all Word docs when printing in blue - can you help please?
I only use genuine cartridges.

HP2100 aaargh!

Click on "control panel"
select "printers"
Do you see (hp2100) your printer?
If NO, it is NOT installed correctly.
If you DO see it, RIGHT click on it and select PROPERTIES
The GENERAL tab will show if it is working properly
Click on the Tab labeled DRIVER, and you will see an option to UPDATE DRIVER-click that.

Another way to view your printer is go to
then select SYSTEM then select HARDWARE
then select DEVICE MANAGER- (this will show everything-all your hardware and peripherals)

Look for IMAGING DEVICES and click on the "+"
Do you see your (hp2100) printer?
NO-not installed
YES-(but if there is a yellow triangle here it indicates an error)
RIGHT click on printer, select PROPERTIES
select DRIVER, click on UPDATE DRIVER.

You may need to restart.

Let me know how this works.

Hope this helps.

FYI : Xp does come with drivers, but they may be outdated, hence your problems.

Won's print pdf files

Trouble with the HP Laserjet printed output may be solved by using the following settings (or similarly named ones): "Use raster Graphics" (instead of "Use vector graphics"). This may fix the problem of "reversed" text (white on black background) not printing, as well as other problems. "Download TrueType Fonts as bitmap soft fonts" (select "bitmap" instead of "outline" or "graphics"). This may remove the overlapping of text on the printed document. "Graphics dithering" select "coarse" or "fine" (instead of "none"). This selection may improve the quality of images contained in the document. You can find all these settings in your printer properties. Go to File, Print, click Preferences, in Printing Preferences, click one by one all the top options, and change one of the top solutions, one at the time, checking your printing output. Always check if you have the latest version of Adobe Reader Program. If not download the latest version from Adobe, it's free. Is this the first time that you have the problem? or with the same printer (HP 4si), did you were able to print PDF files in the past?
