Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
I am having a extremely strange printer issue with one of our users here. We have a hp laserjet 2600n setup on the network. We setup the printer on the computer
as a local printer using a tcp/ip port. When we first setup the printer
it will print the test page at the end of the install just fine. Any
attempts to print after that will not work. There is no errors on the
printer or the computer indicating that something may have gone wrong.
We have multiple users connected the the printer and this issue only happens to one user. We even changed out her computer with a new one with a fresh install of xp pro and the issue is still there. We have also tried different drivers and restarting the printer. Any insight to what may be causing this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The last time I checked, you cannot set up a local printer using a TCP/IP port. A local printer is physically connected to a computer via a parallel, serial (very old), or USB cable. If the printer is connected to a switch, hub, or router via an Ethernet cable, it is by definition a network printer and the driver install must reflect this. I don't understand why it is able to print out the test page after the install. If you open up Control Panel -> Printers and double-click on the HP Laserjet 2600n in there, it will bring up the local spooler for the printer. You may have a bunch of print jobs queued up in there that it cannot currently send to the printer. You may want to clear the queue first (cancel all print jobs). Let me know if you have problems clearing the queue & I can give you instructions on how to do that one too.
