do a self-test first. Perform by holding down the feed button then powering on the printer. if it prints then it is not a printer issue, but a driver or cable issue.

The following describes how to upgrade firmware in the LaserJet 2400, P3005 and 5200 Series Printers using a USB connection only.
To send the firmware upgrade via USB, you will need to know the name of the computer the printer is connected to, and the printer will need to be shared.
To find out the name of your computer:
Click the Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then choose System Information.
You will find your computer’s name in the right window-pane next to System Name.
Write down this name as it will be needed later.
To share the connected printer:
Click the Start button, Settings , then choose Printers ("Printers and Faxes" on WinXP).
Right click on the printer you need to send the upgrade to and then choose Sharing.
On WinXP, if you encounter the following link "If you understand the security risks but want to share printers without running the wizard, click here.", click the link.
Select "Just enable printer sharing" and click OK .
Select Shared As: ("Share this printer" on WinXP) and type a name for the share.
Click Apply and write down the share name as it will be needed later.
To send the firmware upgrade using a USB connection:
Go to a DOS Command Prompt and locate the directory where you saved the firmware file. (To open a Command Prompt inWindows 2000 or XP, go to the Start button, then choose run, then type CMD and hit Enter, in Windows 98 or ME, go to the Start button, Programs, Accessories, then choose MSDOS Prompt). This will bring up a small black screen as displayed below:
If connected to a USB port, Type: copy /b filename \computer nameshare name (for example, copy /b ozfw.rfu \computer1printer).
Press ENTER .
The control panel displays receiving upgrade followed by performing upgrade . The download may take several minutes.
The control panel displays processing job .
The download is complete when the printer reboots and "READY" message is displayed on the control panel.

The problem is the PCL5 driver.
Replace it with a PCL6 driver.
Apparently, Microsoft issued an update that broke PCL5 drivers.
Perhaps they were trying to save paper. LOL!
