Question about HP LaserJet 1160 Printer

Open Question

HP 1160 w/Vista only prints sometimes

It used to work fine but now it often gets an error in the print cache after printing ten times or so fine, the next one just locks the printer up and the green lite blinks- if you cancel print jobs it still blinks and after a few minutes a blank page comes out. Once it does this we have to shut the computer and printer off and restart in order to print again.

Phet, -Exactly what is the error message? -How is this printer connected to your PC, direct, networked though a server, etc.)? -What driver are you using? Once you supply this and any other pertinent details we'll start troubleshooting.

SOURCE: HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer

Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

I can't print out with my 1160 and computer


Always try downloading the appropriate driver first, but if it just doesn't work you can always use the postscript version of the HP Laser-jet 4 driver in the Windows driver list and still get most functionality under Vista on almost all HP laser printers.

Sandra, Do you see the HP LaserJet 1160 printer listed in Start (Windows Icon) > Control Panel > "Hardware and Sound/Printers" (Control Panel Home), or "Printers" (Classic View)?If you do not see the printer listed, run the installation from the CD that came with the printer, or you can download the drivers from the HP support site at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=410620&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=410618&taskId=135note: make sure you choose the correct version (either Windows Vista, or Windows Vista x64). If you're unsure, you can check by right clicking "My Computer" and selecting "Properties". Under the system category you will see "System Type" noting either a "32-bit operating system" or "64-bit operating system". If you do see the printer listed in control panel/printers, then: Are you able to successfully print a test page? (Right-click the HP LasterJet 1160 and select "Properties", then select "Print Test Page").If not, does the test page show up in the printer queue? (You can check the queue by simply double clicking the printer). Let me know what you find!- Joshua
