Printers can be tricky. My first suggestion would be to uninstall the printer from the computer. Then to reinstall, I would go to the HP website (they have many pages on installing printers, here is one about network printers at random) http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/wireless-printing-center/printer-setup-help.html
I prefer to use the drivers from the website rather than from the setup disk myself.

WHY DOT MATRIX PRINTER NOT PRINTING DOS BASE PRINTS


It can't.
DOS printing need LPTx parallel port because DOS don't understand/support USB.

YOU can share the printer with windows printer driver, then
go to CMD prompt
Type
Net use lpt1 \\<computername>\<printersharename>
Then print DOS job to LPT1

I have a retail store with 7 x Win 7 Workstations. i have 1 x Epson Tm-T88iii thermal receipt printer connected and installed on lpt1 port on my 1 workstation. We use a Dos application for our sales. The...


Hi, details below for creating a ersistent connection from LPT1: to you \\computer\\printername printer. Do the following on the other workstation that is not printing.

Use the net.exe command to establish a persistent connection.

To do this, use the following syntax at a command prompt:

net use lpt1 \\printserver\sharename /persistent:yes

where printserver is the print server that is sharing the printer, and where sharename is the name of the printer share.

For example, to map LPT1 to a printer shared as Laser1 on a print server that is named Pserver, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. Type net use lpt1 \\pserver\laser1 /persistent:yes, and then press ENTER.
4. To quit the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.

Note In Windows XP, non-administrative users cannot map an LPT port to a network printer path when the LPT port exists on the computer as a physical parallel port.

My printer HP C5280 don't print.It says that there is an error.I've tried reinstalling the driver and other things nothing helped.


An HP deskjet color printer is attached to an NT server on LPT1 and share on a network. It has been working well for sometimes but now, we can no longer print documents from the server console to that printer. No error message is generated. Other Windows 98 users on the network can print to this printer. Both the server and printer have been rebooted several times. Re-installation of the driver was attempted and an "unrecognized option" error was generated. The printer's uninstall program was run and the printer icon remains in the print folder. What is the most probable solution to this printer problem?
-- Max

This sort of problem is the main reason I don't like to have a network printer attached to a server. It's nice when it works but can be a real pain to troubleshoot when it doesn't. As a general rule, I don't suggest trying to share an inkjet printer unless it has a built-in network jack. I have run into several situations where the bi-directional communication between the printer and the LPT port just doesn't work well in a network situation. Even with improvements in server hardware over the past several years, putting a printer on LPT1 (or any LPT port for that matter) can slow the server down, based on the IRQ normally associated with the parallel port.

If the clients can print to the printer, that would suggest the path over the network is good. I would verify that you have all the latest Windows updates applied to the server. If you have anti-virus installed on the serve (and you probably do), I would apply these updates with the anti-virus disabled. While this shouldn't be a problem, I have had it bite me more than once. After applying the updates and rebooting the server one more time, make sure that you have the latest printer drivers from HP. Disable the anti-virus softwareagain, then reinstall the printer driver to see if you get the same result. If you do get the same error, a check of HP's support web site or a call to HP Support may be in order to do a file/registry level removal of the printer driver information.

While doing this, disconnect the printer from the server or you may end up fighting the operating system trying to rediscover and install printer drivers while you are trying to clear up the initial problem. After completing these and potentially doing another reboot of the server, you might be able to successfully reinstall the printer driver.

WGPS606 does not like printers


Hi, visit the link below to check the compatibility list of this print server. If your printer is not listed then it means that it has not been tested with this print server and there is equal chances for its nonfunctioning with the print server.

for further support with any netgear product visit my.netgear.com

Do rate it, if it helps.

Regards
Anand

Our HP DesignJet 500 will not print.


If they changed the server queue, or possibly did not even reinstall the printer queue on the new server, all is not lost.

First try connecting to the printer directly using USB or parallel if that's an option. If you can set it up as a local printer and that works, at least you know the printer is fine.

If you can print a diagnostic page with all of the specs of the printer, you can find the IP address and print directly to the printer, bypassing the server print queue. You can also find it in the Setup, IO Setup section of the printer's control panel.

To create an IP print connection, add a new printer, choose local printer, then choose "create a new port" of type "Standard TCP/IP port". Then enter your printer's IP and point to the driver as before, and you should be able to go direct.

Hi, I connected the printer server GPSU01U to a dlink 524


When you connect the print server to the router, does the lights lit? have you tried to reset the print server (reset button is on the side of the print server). press the reset button for 10 seconds, after 10seconds, while still holding the reset button power cycle the print server (unplug then replug the power cable) then release the reset button. Try to find the print server using the PS admin.

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 Printer connected to a linksys print server, but



Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from Epson.com/support. During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.

Check the port configurations on both XP machines. It should have the IP address of the print server connected to the plotter.
