Question about HP LaserJet 1018 Printer

HP1018-After pulling the plug in the middle of printing it dies..


I'm having a problem with HP LaserJet 1018. My friend started printing something huge, accidentally, and when the Stop button didn't stop the printing he pulled the power plug. After this the printer has not printed anything from this PC.

I took the stuck paper out, cleaned it and there are no error messages. When I try to print the print log normally says file delivered to the printer (or something similar) but the printer won't start.

The funny thing is, that is works just fine with other PCs. Any solutions? Tried cleaning the damn thing, and installing the drivers again, but it still just sits still when you give it a task.

    To solution 1: Thanks, but I've deleted the tasks a thousand times, it simply says "Printing" there if I give it a task, but nothing happens. The printer also does not give any red lights, just the usual green light.

    To solution 2: Restart the server of the printer? What do you mean and how do I do that?

    Yeah, already twice.. The first time I try to print after a re-install all I got was a brief red flash on the error light and then, again, the silent death.

    Any ideas?

    Hmm I installed it the 3rd time now, and - poof- it works. This time I didn't do the "test copy" at the end of the installation.. Weird. Anyways, thanks a lot for your help mate!

Hmm, seen this issue a couple of times before....try to clean the work-memory on your PC that goes to the printer.

find the printer on your pc,..dubble click on it, you will probably see a lot of work stored that hawent been printed, clean all of them.
Restart you pc...and try if that works.

If that dosent work, unistall the printer and reinstall it.

Good luck to you

    Did you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer?

    Since the printer works perfect on another pc, as you told us, the problem must be on your pc.

    Try this, uninstall the printer again, be sure you delete the folder in the "program files", be sure that you clean the Teporary files folder, restart your pc and reinstall the printer...if you havent alryde tryed that.
    There must be a file somewhere that corrupt or blocking info from leaving your pc to your cant be anything else...logical...
