Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

How do you clear the stored memory?

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!

    Clearing the memory in the Printer Folder was the first thing I did. Sorry I left it out as one of the steps I took. The HP Laser Jet 4 has its own internal memory and that is what needs to be cleared.

    I have the same problem. This is not as simple as clearing the print queue. My printer continues to print garbage as soon as it is powered on ... whether it is hooked to a PC or not!!

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.

HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Is wps54g wireless print router compatible with windows 7: how do I get it installed


Contrary to the on-line advice that I have found, the Linksys wireless print server WPS54G is compatible with Windows 7. It is the installation program that is not compatible. While not as bad as the early days of setting hardware dip switches, the print server must be installed manually. Following are the many steps that I took to install my WPS54G to work with Windows 7; lengthy, but worth it.


1. Connect your printer to the PC using a USB cable and USB port. Allow the printer to install. Print a test page. Even though you just installed the printer, check for an updated printer driver at the manufacturer's website. I did this late in the process before I could get the printer to work. It installed an HP universal driver.

2. Set the printer as the default.

3. If you do not know the IP address of your print server, access the router using your browser. See your manual for instructions. For a Linksys, type the default IP router address 192.168.1.1 into the browser address bar. If you have done this in the past, set up your router security. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin.

4. Connect your print server to the PC using a USB cable and USB port.

5. On the router locate the DHCP Client Table and determine the IP address of the print server. You might have to refresh the table. The default is probably 192.168.1.78.

6. Access the print server using your browser and the IP address of the print server. The default user name is left blank and the default password is admin. Set up security to match the router, SSID, password, type of encryption, etc.

7. Go to "Devices and Printers" (from the start menu), on the default printer icon that you just installed, right click and open "Printer Properties." Click on the "Ports" tab.

8. Click on "Add Port." Select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click on "New Port." Click "Next." Add the IP address of the print server (probably 192, 168.1.78) and call the port whatever you want. Click "Next."

9. After the port configures and you get the "Port Settings" tab (you can also get there by clicking on "Configure Port), change the protocol to "LPR" and click "LPS byte counting enabled." Use "p1" or P2" etc. for the "queue name."

10. Disconnect the print server from the USB port and let it sit for 30 seconds.

11. Disconnect the printer from the USB port.

Can i hook my printer to this router Linksys wireless-g 2.4ghz


You want to connect a printer to the network.
If you have Ethernet port on the printer then you can connect it to the router with the ethernet cable. IF it is wireless printer then you will need to connect to the wireless network on the printer. In both the cases you will need to set up your printer as a network printer. If you contact the manufacturer of the printer they will tell you how to do it.
If you do not have ethernet port on the printer and it has only USB port and it is not a wireless printer then you will need a print server. You can purchase a wireless print server and you can set it up so that all the computers will be able to print onthe same printer.
If you have only the USB port and you don't want to use print server, then you can connect your printer to one of your computer. Enable File and printer sharing on all the computer. If you go to microsoft.com and search for file and printer sharing, you will get steps to enable file and printer sharing.
If you want to check the wireless settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router .

Will linksys wirless g print server woork with epson cx4800 printer


Yes,
This is a USB All-In-One printer and the Linksys Wireless G Print Server supports USB pprinters.

However,
For the cost of the Linksys print server, you can purchase an Epson NX515 that has built-in WiFi. It would also be less hassle if the Linksys/CX4800 has a problem. You would not know which device is causing the problem.

Linksys print server Model EPSX3


Firmware upgrade for your print server could fix your problem or kill your print server.

Try this first: SET UP A STANDARD TCP/IP port.
Set a static ip on the print server. Use that ip address to set up your STANDARD TCP/IP PORT. You can do this on the printers and faxes page.
Right click the default printer then click properties. You have to ADD A NEW PORT.
