Question about HP LaserJet 1100 Printer
My laserjet 1100 was just put on a different computer. When plugged in and connected to the pc it began printing page after page of gargled text, nothing but one line of strange characters on each page. It won't stop. If I disconnect it from the PC it stops. Can't print a test page, can't reset the printer, nothing. It refuses to do anything except print these garbage pages non-stop. I have tried holding down the button long enough to reset everything, tried re-installing drivers, etc. I hope it is a simple connection issue like it not doing well with xp or something to this effect.
Hello, It sounds as if the printer is receiving PostScript and that's a language it can't understand. On your PC (assuming Windows operating system), get properties on the printer and look for a driver name. Most drivers that are PostScript have "PS" in the name. If your driver name has PS as part of the name, or if the driver does not correctly describe the printer, change the driver to match the printer. If you have any troubles doing this, include the version of Windows (or other OS) and we'll be able to provide step-by-step instructions.
