Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer
I hooked up a USB printer to my Linksys Wirless Print Server. Like a ding bat I forgot to change the Port Settings from Parallel to USB and then sent a request for a print test. Of course the computer is only as smart as the programer and it was sent to the wrong printer. Now my Laser Jet is trying to print sheet after sheet of garled info that was supposed to go to my Epson Stylus Photo R200 and I can't get the memory to clear. I have tried turning off the printer and even unplugging it for a day. HELP!
The problem is not with the printer, but with your PC print queue still having the outstanding print job. Anytime you power off a printer, it automatically clears it's internal memory. Depending upon which operating system you are using, you need to go to the Printers Folder, open up the queue, and delete the print job there. Once the queue is clear, that should take care of it.
