Follow the link and get the correct driver and get installed

Also try with another USB cable, If you are using a long cable, just try with a short one.

First install the printer driver on your computer and then change the printer port to IP port with the printer's IP address.

Can't print to HP 2600n over network


The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

Network or Share HP LaserJet 2200D Printer


Try this:

1. Go to the computer where the printer is attached or connected. Go to Printer and Faxes under XP, right click on your printer icon, then click on share. On the same computer, click on Start then click on run. Type in cmd then click on OK. On the black window or command prompt, type in ipconfig then press enter. Take note of the IP address.

2. Go to a computer that you want to print on the printer. Click on start then click on run. type in \\IP address of the computer where the printer is attached. For example: On the run box type in \\192.168.1.2 the click on OK. You will see there a window and you can see there the printer that is attached to that computer. Just right click on it then click on Connect.

3. Try to print.

Hope it helps!

Printer status offline


I just ran into the same problem. The computers on the network that were running XP were showing the printer as "Ready", but all of the computers running Vista were showing the printer as "Offline".

After trying a number of solutions that I found on other message boards, I accidentally discovered that the problem was an IP address conflict. It seems that the server changed the address on the printer, which didn't bother the XP machines but brought the Vista machines to their knees.

Press and hold the blue button (HP called it the "Go" button) for 5 seconds, which will print a configuration report. In the TCP/IP section you will see the IP address for the printer. Next, open the Printers window, right-click on the P2015 and click Properties. Click the Ports tab. Find the port that is checked and click the "Configure Port..." button. If the "Printer Name or IP Address" field differs from the IP address on the configuration report, change it to the one on the report. It took a few seconds after hitting OK for the computer and prrinter to link up again, but that solved the problem for me.
