HP 4L will print test page just fine but cannot communicate with my computer. Tried to download new drivers but that didn't work. Any ideas?

Hello, The HP4L will be connected by a parallel cable. This is the big cable attached to the I/O interface. The first thing to try would be to reseat the cable by removing from the printer and the computer. Look at the pins for any obvious bent pins. Install the cable back onto the printer and computer. Try sending a test page to the printer from the computer. If the printer does still not work, I would definitely recommend the use of another cable. If the cable has been changed and the printer still does not function, then most likely the inferface has gone bad, in which case the cost of repair for this older printer may not be worth it. regards, Pre.....

I amm looking for a driver under windows98 for HP 4l

The driver for the HP 4L printer should be built into Windows 98. Goto add printer, select HP and look for your model. If you cant find the exact model try a laserjet model that is close, it should work fine.
Hope this helps

HP laserjet 4L parallel to usb vista Jumbled font on test page

You mentioned parallel usb. The HP4L only has parallel. Make sure you specify LPT1 as the port you want. Try reinstalling the driver. It should be in the list of drivers.

Only prints one page

You could try using these drivers on the These drivers were from March of 2007.

This was listed at Officejet K550. They didn't have a Pro Printer listed. If there are any letters after the model number you should go to that page instead.
