Is it possible to install the Post Script drivers for a Laserjet 5000 printer? Also how can I use that printer within my network to print from other PC's


Yes, hp provides a Universal Postcript Driver.

1) Go to hp.com and click on Support & Drivers at the top of the home page. In Step 1, select Dowload Drivers & Software. In Step 2, Type into the window LJ5000 and click Go.

2) Select Laserjet 5000

3) Select your operating system, e.g. Windows XP, or Vista, etc.

4) Scroll down to the driver tables. Look for Universal Postscript Driver for Windows and click on Download.

5) Install the driver.

As for the network, I assume this is a Laserjet 5000, NOT a 5000N (which means it has an Embedded network card inside). If this is the case, you will need to add a JetDirect card into the printer. Then you will be able to install it to the network and print from other PCs.

On the other hand, if yours IS a network printer, you will merely need to install the printer to your network.

1) Plug you network cable into the printer.
2) Power the printer on.
3) After the printer comes to READY, wait for about 3 minutes.
4) Go to the printer's onboard menu and scroll to INFORMATION and select that menu.
5) Scroll down to "PRINT CONFIGURATION PAGE".
6) On the Config Page, look for the Embedded JetDirect page, and look in the left column for IP Address. It should be from your network.
7) Look next for Configured by: DHCP.

8) If you go to a PC that is on the same network, type the IP address for the config page into the web browser address window and press Enter key. You should see your printer "Laserjet 5000", and can from here do all knids of settings if you choose.

You will need to install the driver on each PC, or install the driver onto the network server as well.

HP Laserjet 5000 moved and now says offline


Please verify the workstation (or server) is not set to "use printer offline", I also suggest trying to ping the ip address of the printer or trying to access the webinterface of the printer by going to printers ip address in a web browser.

Please let me know if this fixes your problem or if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.

Cant connect (or see) my LaserJet 5000 on Windows XP


In XP go to START > CONTROL PANEL > NETWORK CONNECTIONS > LOCAL AREA CONNECTION
you should see a menu showing your network card and a window that says stuff like Client for Microsoft Windows. Below that window is an INSTALL button. Click on that and double click PROTOCOL. Select IPX/SPX NetBios and hit OK. You'll probably need the WindowsXP CD to finish installing the protocol.

The LJ5000 is a very old printer and if I remember correctly, it uses the IPX/SPX Netbios language to communicate through a network. Netbios is not installed by default in XP.

NO RESPONSE, PRINTER DISPLAY BLANK


sounds like you have a bad formatter....there is a way to circumvent the formatter and print whats called an engine test. this is used just to test the mechanics of the machine and leave the brain out of the equation...

Engine Test Button Location HP laserjet printer 5000 series

The engine test verifies that the print engine is functioning correctly.
The Formatter PCA is completely bypassed during an engine test.
This test is very useful for isolating printer problems. The engine test
prints a full page of lines across the entire printable area, and is also
useful for checking and adjusting registration.

laserjet-5000-engine-test.jpg Note Engine test will print from the last input tray used.
If the last input tray is empty or if the last input source was the duplexer,
then the Engine Test will print from Tray 2 (standard 250 CST).
If Tray 2 is empty (and the last input tray is empty or the last input source
was the duplexer), then the Engine Test will not function.

Printing an Engine Test HP laserjet printers 5000 series
To print an engine test, use a non-metallic object (such as a pencil) to
press the engine test button. A single test page with horizontal lines
will be printed. To print multiple test pages, hold down the engine test
button.

If the engine test prints ok then you have a formatter issue...if you have added memory or a network card try taking them out one at a time to see if the problem goes away. Otherwise the formatter will have to be replaced.
