Hp LaserJet 1020 Not printing in Windows 7 Enterprise N.

Is your computer recognizing it? Try opening your Control Panel in Windows, find Devises and Printers and see if its listed. If not disconnect it from computer, then reboot. Hook it back up again, reboot your computer and see if Windows finds it. Also check to see if the printer is set as default printer. If not set it as such. Try it again.

Hp laserjet 8150 black blocks lcd display

If the printer isn't intializing then you may have a formatter issue. Try reseating the the formatter in the back of the printer. There is two thumb screws that hold it in place. If the printer is booting up and you can still print to it but you just can't read the control panel then the problem is with the control panel.

I get an error in HP LaserJet 4345 MFP printer, 49.ff95 error, Tunr off and the turn on

a 49.xxxx error on an HP means that there is an issue with one or more hard disks. you can try to re-initialise the hard disk(s) by rebooting the printer while holding the green button. when the three leds are lit, release the green button, and navigate using the numerical buttons until you see "initialise hard disks" on the display of the printer. confirm by pressing the green button again. if all goes well, your printer will take two minutes longer than usual to boot. if you still get the same error afterwards, you need to replace the disk.

Hp 4345 mpf - offline


If the printer's display just says "Offline" yuo should push the Sleep button on the front panel and you're done. If the message occurs in the printer driver instead, you could try to disable BiDirectional support in the driver.
