HP laserjet 2500

I dowloaded a driver for my windows xp professional but every time I print I get the red light come on. When I press the green button on the top, I then get the last couple of things I printed run off again. Obviously I can get it to print but I have to turn everything off between print runs to get it back to standard mode.

Re: HP laserjet 2500

I would recommend going back to the site and chosing a different driver.
There is a PCL 5 a PCL 6, PS drivers and some patches on the HP site.
You sometimes have to try different drivers to perform with your specific machine.
you do have a driver issue here. Sometimes it is frustraiting getting the right one, be persistant, it will work fine.

My HP Laserjet 4350 is printing 3 copies all the time even the test page.

Press the green button (with the "check" sign on it), then press the "down" arrow button four times.
The display should read "configure device".
Press the green button again.
Press the down arrow one time? until you see "printing".
Press the green button.
Scroll down to "copies"... it probably reads "3".
Set it back to "1" and then press the green arrow button.

LaserJet 2605dn Printer: HP Color Laser Jet 2605 printer far left side blac...

Faded prints are possible due to following reasons.

1. Fogged red mirrors inside the Laser box
2. Alignment of the Laser Box
3. Calibration Problem
4. Cleaning Problem

I will guide you with simple steps first, if this dosen't work working with laser box is little tough & time consuming, hence will describe later.

To Calibrate the colors, Press the 'Green Button' in the front panel, use the arrow keys to navigate through menu.

Select 'System Setting' by pressing the green button again, navigate using the arrow keys and select the 'Calibrate Color', select green button to select and confirm to 'Calibrate Now'. This will take few minutes.

In addition to that, to clean the paper path, select the green button and use the arrow keys and navigate thru' menu and select 'Service'. select using the green button and navigate through menu and select cleaning option. This will take few minutes.

Try printing some documents and check whether you have fixed. If you have not got the original print quality, Let know to guide you more technically.

Switch it on and load paper.
Press the red and green buttons together, and several pages should print out, test page, config page, and perhaps a EIO or network config page.
The second page should show the page count.

Downloaded driver from HP. connected printer via

HP Support says “If the Ready light is blinking, and the Go light is on, it indicates Data in the printer memory is waiting to be printed. Pressing the GO button prints from Tray 1 or from another tray if Tray 1 is empty and the paper size is supported in the other Tray. Pressing the JOB CANCEL button cancels the current job and the printer returns to ready.
Make sure the paper size is correctly defined.

'Printer out of paper' message

on note pad or word you should select the paper size first because it might set to a different size. when you click file click print click properties or printing preference and choose what size of paper you have in your tray and then click ok. print ok.
check the printer paper tray setting to make sure the paper tray side guide is right agains the paper. I hope this will solve your problem.

Hp laserjet 4 plus printer, message window "Ready", off line button shows red

You can try to do a "Cold reset"

turn off the printer hold down  the Menu/reset button and turn it back on.

Do you hear the machine go into rotation? the 4 plus has a high pitch sound follwed by the fuser turning ( you'll know when it does it) if it doesn't go into rotation then there is another problem.
