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.

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.

Welcome to Fixya
If this happened recently then try to reset the printer to factory state. Please see procedure below:
1.Connect the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer to the power cord. ( note : If the automatic power-on function is enabled in the printer, the printer enters the service mode for the first time, but it will never enter the service mode if the printer is turned off by the Power button. This is because the printer remains to be turned on internally if the power is turned off by the Power button. To prevent this, disconnection of the power cord is required before starting the printer in the service mode ) .

2.With the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer powered off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button. (note : Don't release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

3.While holding the Power button, release Resume/Cancel button. (Don't release the Power button.)

4.While holding the Power button, press Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons.

5.When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times to reset waste ink counter in the Canon Pixma iX4000. (note : If the Power LED does not light in green the printer does not enter the service mode, disconnect the power cord and plug it again. Then start from step 1 to start the printer in the service mode again).

6.At the end of the service mode, press the Power button. The paper lifting plate of the sheet feed unit will be raised.
Note :

Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.
Other specified number of time(s) according to the function listed in the table below.

Time(s) LED indication Function Remarks
0 times Green (Power) Power off
1 time Orange (Alarm) Service test print
2 times Green (Power) EEPROM information print
3 times Orange (Alarm) EEPROM initialization
4 times Green (Power) Waste ink counter resetting
5 times Orange (Alarm) Destination settings
6 times Green (Power) Print head deep cleaning (Cleaning of both black and color)

Perform a Factory Reset


Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer. Check that the front cover is closed.


Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.


Press the GO button 8 times. The Ready LED will flash briefly while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Ready LED will be lit.



Print a Test Print Page


Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times.

- If the Print Settings pages do not print, check for alarm lights on the printer. Clear the printer error before trying to print again.

- If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing from your computer. Verify the printer cable connects from the back of the computer directly to the printer. If the cable has become disconnected, loose, or connects through another device, the printer may not be able to print.

Click Printer at the top of the window again. Make sure that Pause Printing and Use Printer Offline are not check marked. If either setting is marked, click on the check mark to remove it.


Click Properties from this Printer menu list.


Click the Ports tab. Verify the correct port is selected (LPT1 is using a parallel cable and USB is using a USB cable). Remember to click Apply if you select another port.

Click the General tab and Print Test Page button. The Windows test page should now print.

- If the Windows test page prints, try printing from a program.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please try to reset the printer by following the steps---


Turn the power off. Now hold down Resume button and press Power button. Keep holding down Power button and let the Resume button go. Press Resume button twice and then let both buttons go. Green light will flash then stop blinking. When Green light is solid, press Resume button 4 times. Now press the power button and the printer should turn off. If not, press the Power button once more.


If still the issue is not resolved, then please follow the procedure to uncheck the grayscale printing---

On the Windows desktop, click 'Start' then click 'Settings', then click 'Printers' (Windows XP: On the Start menu, click 'Printers and Faxes').

For Windows Vista: Click/Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then Click on 'Printers'.

Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.

For Windows 2000/XP/Vista: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Printing Preferences'.

For Windows 98/Me: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Properties' and then on the Main tab, click on the 'Grayscale Printing' check-box to remove the check-mark. Click the 'OK' button to save the settings.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
