If you can print to it the network setup is ok. It sounds more like a print driver problem.

725 printer prints constanty on its own when not called for


If it's printing jibberish or "ASCII Garbage" then you probably have the wrong print driver installed.
Uninstall the print driver, disconnect the printer, reboot and reinstall the driver plugging the printer back into the PC when the installation software prompts you to.

Printing jibberish!


Delete the printer icon. Restart your PC. Reinstall the printer driver. If that doesn't work, your printer cable may be faulty.

Every time we try to print it just says error and won't print


If this printer was working fine before, it probably just needs to be cleaned really good with clean compressed air that has no moisture. Also do a test print after you blow it out. If it prints fine in test print then you know that your problem is not in the printer and you may need to reinstall your printer software driver. Check it out. God bless you.

Sharp 1642CS shared printer


You can go into your print driver and change the Driver. I dont think there is a difference between Home or Prem drivers. There is how ever a difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Vista?
When you set up the printer and share it from a PC, The printer attached to that PC can Control the Configurartion of the printer. PC's can either pull the driver from the sharing PC or you can select your own.

I would first check that the correct drivers are installed, (64bit or 32bit)
I would check the computer that is trying to print. replace the driver with the correct one.
You can open the print server -open the printers and fax folder, right click in a white area in that folder, a menu should pop up. Select Print Server from there you will see tabs, try to replace the driver from there.
Or Open the Printer Properties and there you will see Driver-Update in there.

This is a link to an explanation
Thou it was made for XP but the basic Infomation is the same.
-->Print a test page from The Printer Properties), if it works the Computer is fine, if you try to print from a program and it prints with errors. it is in the program..

Test Page automatically prints


Disconnect Printer from PC. Uninstall the driver and download most recent driver from HP web site. If there is a print management program which there should be uninstall this as well and download the latest version.

Shut down, not reboot PC
Start PC

Start the install process by installing the print management program installation. Follow the process and test. If it persists try a different USB cable.
