Re: HP LaserJet 5100 network printer

In admin mode, you need to add the client to printer permissions

You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group.

To assign this user right, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type gpedit.msc, and then click OK.
2. Click Computer Configuration, click Windows Settings, click Security Settings, click Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignment.

Have you tried a different driver eg. rpcs or another version of pcl?Have you checked your workstations services app to check if your print spooler is running?Also when you print a config page from the hp it will give you your network details.To eliminate your network grap a crossover cable and connect directly to the printer and test.Let me know.

SOURCE: Model HP LaserJet M4345 MFP The printer displays

You've done everything but replace the formatter.
Can you look at the Event Log? Look for a 79.xxxx error. That is definately a formatter.
Is this a solid error, meaning does it appear when printer inits?
Remove the DIMMs and flash memory and network cable. And reinstall one by one until error reappears.
Do you have another 4345 that you can "borrow" a formatter from?

Laserjet 5100 says data received but won't print. It will print a conifg page from the printer. Will not print from Notepad, Properties test page or CS5. It printed yesterday.

How are you connecting to the printer? Parallel, USB or network? A 5100 series would come with a JetDirect 615 card and they are prone to unexpected failures. If you do have a network card it should show up on the config pages when you print. If it does not, then you can try to cold reset the printer as that sometimes revives the cards.

RPC service may not be available or started on the client machine.
To start/ enable it go to 'Run Command' and type 'services.msc' , locate REMOTE PROCEDURE CALL (RPC) and start the service.

Cannot print on shared printer

I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

Unable to connect to printer

actually it may be a network problem. I have had 10-15 machines go down and lose the printers at the same time in a hospital and the sloution was to turn them all  off and on to reset it. Sometimes it would happen 3-4 times a month. A glitch in the network.

Assuming these are all network printers.
