Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer will not print anything except test page and wont delete


Possibly, the print spooler needs to be restarted. In Windows, one of the ways to do this is in the Command Prompt window. (Start > Accessories > Command Prompt, right click on the command and choose Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7).
Type "net stop spooler" <enter> without the quotes. At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" <enter> again without the quotes. After the last command finishes, restart the computer. Check that the queue is empty and retry printing.

I hope this helps.

Printer prints words on top of each other


Check to make sure that there is nothing preventing the page from being pulled into the printer. Overlapping words is often caused by the paper feed not moving quickly enough, subsequently causing words to overlap and not span the entire page.
If that doesn't work, let me know and we'll troubleshoot further.

NO RESPONSE, PRINTER DISPLAY BLANK


sounds like you have a bad formatter....there is a way to circumvent the formatter and print whats called an engine test. this is used just to test the mechanics of the machine and leave the brain out of the equation...

Engine Test Button Location HP laserjet printer 5000 series

The engine test verifies that the print engine is functioning correctly.
The Formatter PCA is completely bypassed during an engine test.
This test is very useful for isolating printer problems. The engine test
prints a full page of lines across the entire printable area, and is also
useful for checking and adjusting registration.
hp-laserjet5000gn.jpg

laserjet-5000-engine-test.jpg Note Engine test will print from the last input tray used.
If the last input tray is empty or if the last input source was the duplexer,
then the Engine Test will print from Tray 2 (standard 250 CST).
If Tray 2 is empty (and the last input tray is empty or the last input source
was the duplexer), then the Engine Test will not function.

Printing an Engine Test HP laserjet printers 5000 series
To print an engine test, use a non-metallic object (such as a pencil) to
press the engine test button. A single test page with horizontal lines
will be printed. To print multiple test pages, hold down the engine test
button.

If the engine test prints ok then you have a formatter issue...if you have added memory or a network card try taking them out one at a time to see if the problem goes away. Otherwise the formatter will have to be replaced.
