Go to Start, Settings, Control panel, printers and faxes is your printer there? is there a checkmark? no, then right click and set as default, put your mouse over it does it say Ready? no, then change cable.


send test page, it should print, if not the USB or Parrallel input of your printer has a problem.

My Hp1100 Laser printer, print only the middle on the page

Hi camec2003

Usually this happens when the toner cartridge is nearly empty. If you take out the cartridge and give a good shake, you will get few more pages.
It is a sign to change the cartridge soon.

HP LaserJet 5L wont do anything

First of all, I wouldn't spend 10 cents on this printer at this point, but is there a toner cartridge installed? It could be empty, and it's probably not going to print very well after all this time anyway. Try giving it a few shakes side to side to loosen any toner that may be inside, if that doesn't get it going, then pick up a new laser printer for $70-$100 (basically the price of a replacement toner cartridge)

In reading this HP forum I have found many other LaserJet 1100 owners who are trying to do the same thing as you.

Many of them recommend various cable solutions from Sewell. When you contact Sewell, make sure to specify your printer model, and ask what specific cables and/or adapters you need to make it work vis USB. They sound quite knowledgeable, and seem to have dealth with this before.
