Question about HP LaserJet 1300 Printer

1 Answer

Printer Stopped Printing

At my place of business we have a HP LaserJet 1300 Printer and there are 10 computers networked to this printer. Literally overnight it stopped working. I have checked all the connections and everything appears to be connected properly. I am able to get a test page to print out, but that is all. I was wondering if it might be the hp jetdirect 200m lio print server. Is there a way to test this device to see if it is the problem?

If you can get a test page this indicates that there is nothing wrong with your printer there should be a little button on the jetdirect box press that and that will give you the jetdirect settings and IP code. Check this with you computer system as your IP host license may of expired and change the jetdirect to suit.

If the network IP code is still the same the cheapest this is to fit a new jetdirect box if this still doesn't work then I'm affrayed that the machine formatter board has become faulty and would probberly out way the cost to repair it that buy a new machine.

I do hope this has helped you
Thanks J

HP Laserjet CP2025 stopped printing.

First thing to do is to turn off the HP. Clear out any print jobs that are sitting on your computer print que waiting to be printed. Turn the printer back on, wait about 1 minute then try printing again. If this does not work then clear the print job again and reboot your PC. Try printing again. If still you can not print then reply here with how the printer is connected to your PC. By USB cable? Ethernet? etc.

Can't print to HP 2600n over network

The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

I want to add my HP laserjet 1200c to my wireless network. I am using vista home premium edition 64 bit. I have had it before but it stopped working and showed the printer as offline. When I tried to add...

If your printer is already connected to a computer and working, all you should cdo is share it. Right click on its icon (under printers and faxes from control panel and select share). Then gradually the printer will automatically install it self all over the network. But if you to use it urgenty on the network manually configure by going the respective computer. Go to network places/view workgroup computers, double click on the computer with the printer. your will see the printer icon. double click on it to install.

HP P2015dn wirless connection stopped working

There is not wireless netwrok card is HP LJ P2015dn, However as i can understand you r using External Wireless Router or Wireless network or jet-direct card if u r able to work fine on USB than printer printing mechanism is working fine.
If u connect the printer via wired network connection and it keeps on loosing IP address than it may be problem with onboard network card of the printer.
If printer keeps on loosing IP Address than try upgrading the firmware of the printer.
To check the firmware and IP Address of the printer print a configuration page by pressing and holding down green button for 6 to 7 seconds

Network printer stopped printing

Try disabling the firewall on your computers. You may also try to do a system restore prior to installing the windows update and check if you will be able to print.
