Question about HP LaserJet 5p Printer
New computer arrived (Windows Vista Home Premium). No parallel port, so I purchased a cable to attach my HP Laserjet 5p to a USB port. Computer recognized and installed the printer. But nothing prints: no docs, no test page, nothing. HP website says that the driver is included in Vista; gives no other drivers to try.
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.
