Hi Malcom,

The HP3420 is connected to your PC through the USB port and not through the LPT1/parallel port.

You have to change the port setting. Go to Start, Printers, right click on HP3420, click on Properties, go to the Ports tab, check/select USB, OK.

Alternately, you may have to re-install the drivers for the HP3420 and allow the program to Search for the printer connection. Clicking on the button Stop Searching will auto install it again to LPT1.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Foxpro dos programme not printingin usb printer laserjet cp1515


You can access your printer connected to USB port with loop back configuration and print from DOS.
Not only that, you can also print to a printer on the network

Try
Net use lpt1: \\Comp name\ printer name /persisten:yes

Printer not printing from computer


Hello:

To resolve this situation try the following:

1) re-install a driver. Goto HP.com and download a anew driver. COmpletly uninstall the old one.

2) Force your deskjet to run a self test...disconnect the cable from the PC...power off the unit...hold down the print button...turn unit back on.

3) try a new cable

4) Download a manual here

I hope you are up and printing soon.

Good luck to you my friend,
