Question about HP LaserJet 1320 Printer

2 Answers


Had the Printer running as a network sharing other computers. I now wanted to go solo and disconnected the printer from the network cable and got a USB cable to run from the printer to computer. I went into the HP website to download the installation and have nothing but failures up to now. Keeps on asking me to connect the printer to the computer and put the power on, which it is.
Please could u help me to get this problem sorted out.

Go here and download the North American full printing solution. This is exactly the same as having the CD and will self install the printer when it runs, just make sure the printer is disconnected when you start the install. Or you can just download the driver and then point the install to the driver file.

How to add NIC in HP color laserjet CP1215 Printer?

If this model HP does not have an expansion slot for a HP Jetdirect Print server, then to use this printer on your network you have two options.
1. Connect the printer to a desktop computer on your network and set it uo as a shared printer. This means this computer and printer needs to be powered up for the other computer on your network to print to the shared printer.
2. Connect the printer to a print server that is connected to your network.

Go to your network and sharing center. Choose homegroup and sharing options. Change advanced sharing settings. Under your home or work profile, scroll down to file sharing connections. Switch to enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption. If that does not work, under password protected sharing, select "turn off password protected sharing". This is not recommended if you use your computer in multiple locations (laptop). I have found that turning all of these features off, running a scan from the printer successfully and then turning them back on, Windows seems to be comfortable allowing the printer to connect to the computer.

If you are sure the network is working well (computers can see each other but your laptop doesn't see the printer). Got to network places/view workgroup computers. Double click on the computer directly connected to the printer. This will bring up all shared folders and the printer icon (if it is shared). Double click on the printer icon, and it will commence automatic installation on your laptop. Try this.

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook

You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP Laser Jet 1320n series

The HP LaserJet 1320 has a USB port and a Parallel port.

The HP LaserJet 1320n has a USB port and an Ethernet port.

USB-to-Parallel converter cables, like this one, are designed to attach a parallel device to a computer's USB port.

But you need to do the opposite (attach a USB device to a computer's parallel port). A USB-to-Parallel converter cable will not do this.
