This unit is meant to be used on a Parallel connection or an JetDirect Network adapter, for use over the local network.

If you want to use the Parallel port, you would need a computer which has a Parallel port on it and a Parallel printer cable.

According to the specs, this unit came standard with a HP Jetdirect 620n Fast Ethernet .

You can conect it to your router. This way all the computers can use it via the network.

    Connecting directly to a single computer

    Purchase and use a parallel cable if you want to connect the

    printer directly to a computer. To ensure reliability, use an

    IEEE 1284 bidirectional C-type parallel cable. The packaging for

    these cables should be clearly marked with the phrase

    “IEEE 1284-compliant.” Only IEEE 1284 cables support all of the

    advanced printer features.

    To connect a parallel cable

    1
    Connect the parallel cable to the printer parallel port. Press

    the locking release levers while connecting the cable.

    Note

    If installing the cable is difficult, make sure that you have the

    correct cable, that you are inserting the correct end, and that the

    end is correctly oriented with the holes in the port.

    2
    Connect the other end of the parallel cable to the proper

    connector on the computer.



    See Page 44 of the reference guide:

    Page 45 shows how to set it up on the network.

HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Hp 9500 hdn - error message 57.70. Can I relace the fuser kit to repair the problem?


No!
The 57.7 error says that the fuser fan could be bad.
If you take the back cover off the printer and look to the right, you will see two fans, one above the other.
The bottom fan is the one you want. It is probably clogged with dirt or else the dirt got inside the fan and is preventing it from spinning. Replace it

HP LaserJet II p Plus will not print


Hi,

I am assuming that you are using Vista. Based on your post/description:
1. the HP Compaq 6710b has no parallel port;
2. the HP LaserJet IIP Plus is only capable of either serial or parallel connection;
3. hence you're attempting a USB to Parallel interface;
4. the printer is installed in your notebook and is set to USB port;
5. from the printer a test print can be performed but not from the Printer Properties in your notebook;
6. all printing jobs initiated from the notebook results in an "Error".

With the above in mind, may I point/suggest that:
a. Windows Vista driver will only enable your HP LaserJet IIP Plus' basic functions to work. It is not 100% compatible;
b. alternately, you can try using the XP installation CD/drivers of the printer;
c. the compatibility issue may be compounded by the USB to parallel interface;
d. the USB to parallel interface may be hampered by a known Vista USB issue;
e. you can try patching/updating the Vista USB driver. Since this has been a recognized issue with Vista, Microsoft has posted a fix for this here or here.
f. verify that the printer does not display a 22 or 40 Error.

If the printing concern has not been rectified after completion of the above procedures, you may need to:
i. download and install HP Universal PostScript Print Driver; or
ii. consider using a wireless print server connected to the parallel port of the printer; or
iii.consider replacing your printer. Sorry.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

HP Laser Jet 1320n series


The HP LaserJet 1320 has a USB port and a Parallel port.

The HP LaserJet 1320n has a USB port and an Ethernet port.

USB-to-Parallel converter cables, like this one, are designed to attach a parallel device to a computer's USB port.

But you need to do the opposite (attach a USB device to a computer's parallel port). A USB-to-Parallel converter cable will not do this.
