Question about HP LaserJet 4050 Printer

1 Answer

HP 4050N drops pages when printing from WP4.2 under WIN98se

The printer will print approximately 53 pages then drops a few pages and prints a half a page. We are printing from WordPefect (WP4.2) running under WIN98SE. I have the printer configured as a Laserjet II in Windows and WordPerfect. I have also tried using the PLC driver and configuring as a 4050n and get the same printing results. Any ideas. Seems like a buffer problem somewhere, but where? The software works fine using a LaserJet III or IV printer configured as a LaserJet II.

Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below

You could have a bad network card. Print a configuration page and if it prints a second page with network information, then the card is good. If not, you need a new card.
