LaserJet 1100 printing problem

When I connect my printer to my wife's desktop computer, it functions correctly. When I connect the printer (using same printer cable) to my laptop, printer does not respond when a file is sent to it (however printer icon in the bottom tray appears to process normally).

Printer begain behaving this way a few month's ago when an update was auto-downloaded/installed from Microsoft site onto the laptop.

I have tried deinstalling/resintalling printer on laptop as well as defined a new printer port...both made no difference. Unable to locate driver update on HP site.

Any thoughts would be most appreciated!

    Yes I did have the correct printer selected when trying to print document from my laptop. I have deinstalled it (used Printers/Faxes from Control Panel), then tried reinstalling via Add-Printer. When I select Finish, get error that it was not installed.



    When I attempt to install from the CD that came with the printer, get warning that driver is not digitally signed. When I attempt to use Windows-Update, the printer selection list does not contain my printer.



    I am beginning to think it is old enough that it is now unsupported (purchased in 2000). Have not been able to find any drivers for it online yet...still looking.

    JD Update: I found 2 drivers on HP site dated May 2002...1 for printer driver and the other for "bundle". I downloaded the printer driver and reinstalled the printer using it...same problem. I then tried the bundle...same problem. Still searching for fix...

How do I change HP Laserjet 1100 to NOT manual feed under Printer Properties?


I suspect the printer is defaulting to manual feed because it thinks there is a page in the manual paper feed. Make sure no bits of paper debris are jamming the sensor.

If this model HP does not have an expansion slot for a HP Jetdirect Print server, then to use this printer on your network you have two options.
1. Connect the printer to a desktop computer on your network and set it uo as a shared printer. This means this computer and printer needs to be powered up for the other computer on your network to print to the shared printer.
2. Connect the printer to a print server that is connected to your network.

My lasejet 1100 print only test pages wether i print other documents please solve my problem soon


HP designed a quick and easy tool that diagnoses and resolves many printing problems: The HP Print Diagnostic Utility. HP recommends that you download and install the Print Diagnostic Utility any time you need to troubleshoot a printing problem.

The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

There should be a driver for this printer included with the Windows Vista Operating system. You can use the Install new printer function to install the driver for your model 1100.

My hp laserjet 1100 doesnt respond when i try to print


Not sure if this will help but if you right click on the printer and go to properties ( when your in printers and faxes ) and go to the ports tab I think it is and un tick the check box that says bi directional support and try it again.

Also what error are you getting thats printed off ?

what lights are on the printer and where are you getting the driver from, if the disc then try the latest driver from the hp website

Continuous garbage text when connected to pc


In reading this HP forum I have found many other LaserJet 1100 owners who are trying to do the same thing as you.

Many of them recommend various cable solutions from Sewell. When you contact Sewell, make sure to specify your printer model, and ask what specific cables and/or adapters you need to make it work vis USB. They sound quite knowledgeable, and seem to have dealth with this before.
