    I have been printing on my Laserjet 5p on Vista with no problems until 1 November 2007 when the printer stopped printing. The printer still works on another PC. The driver is the recommended driver by both HP and Vista. Before printing the printer folder says "ready" but as soon as I print the printer folders says "offline". Any suggestions?

Make sure that you are using the correct drivers for your printer, run through the printer setup again and then check the print.

Vista will not print to HP Laserjet 5p


I purchased a Dynex USB to Parallel Converter Cable from Best Buy and tried to connect but had no success. I then sent an email to Dynex customer service and received a reply in about 24 hours. The rep provided spot on instructions which I was able to follow to a tee. My 14 year old HP Laserjet 5P is now ready to run until it blows up.

I spent hours searching web forums and only received overcomplicated replies by people who think they are techies, none of which worked. I am 63 years old and not a techie, so if I can do it, anyone can. I have saved the email and will forward this straightforward simple fix to anyone who needs it. My net cost was $36.00 for the cable.

LaerJet 5p Extra page prints with code


check all your application.(word, Excel) by going into print preview, you might have a single black page at the begining. ( this happens when you save the templete with a blank page.)

if that is not, let me know. got to go one step at atime.

LaserJet 5p extra page prints first with code


When you get that kind of information those are instructions to the printer. It has been my experience that the drivers loaded for the printer are not the correct ones. Check to make sure that you have the drivers for a HP 5P printer and verify that is what kind a printer you have.
