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

My HP LaserJet printer 5200dtn is displaying error message "50.3 Fuser error" what is the solution to this problem because I can't print


50.3 means the fuser is getting too hot. It will either be a problem with the thermistor in the fuser or the power supply. If you can find a another fuser to test with you can answer the question pretty quickly.

I have installed HP 1220c printer on windows 7 in several ways. Printer seems istalled OK, when I try to print test page or other, the printer doesn't react. Although the print appears and dissapears...


Unistall any previous you have installed for your device.

The Driver for Your Product Is Included in the Windows 7 Operating System (i.e. Win 7-32bit & 64bit).
Simply connect the printer to your computer with a USB cable, and Windows Update automatically installs the driver for your product.

Hope it helps.

Recently had to reload everything on a new hard drive and reinstalled the Z82 drivers and updated firmware. Printer acts like it is printing but does not print anything. Any suggestions?


do you get anything from the self test? Press Setup until MAINTENANCE appears in the display. Press ?ž?or ?¿until PRINT SELF TEST appears in the second row of the display. Press Enter/Select. The message PRINTING appears in
if that works then it is definitely on the computer if not then you know it is a printer issue. When you plug in the USB cable did the computer react as if something plugged in? Try re-installing the drivers. Make sure the port selected is USB

After selecting language and pressin OK message on LCD screen "set the ink cartridge". Cannot go any further than this message except switch off. Restarting brings back the language.


The solution was simple. The printer belonged to a friend who assured me he had replaced both ink cartridges when they ran out. So for some time I did not check them. On removing one cartridge it was obvious that he had accidentallyor unknowingly removed the contact strip on the print head so the printer could not detect or use the new cartridge. An expensive mistake for a newcomer to home printing as he had done the same to both cartridges.
