Question about HP LaserJet 1018 Printer

How to get a HP LaserJet 1018 to actually print something?

I am trying to get my brand new LaserJet 1018 to print.

Fact: It does work, i´ve tryed it together with an other computer.

The installation seems to be ok, but it just wont print anything, whatever i try, stays in the quoue. sometimes i do get an error message, saying "the page cannot be printed."

I know this is a very general description, but i belive it has something to do with the drivers. I have tried the drivers from HP costumer service site, with no different result. could it be the USB drivers? there are no other (new) drivers available from the motherboard manufacturer´s site, so what to do?

    Printer will not print. If the cartridge lid is opened and closed the printer sounds like it is trying to print, but nothing happens. I have checked the printer site and the printer is listed as a comcast printer.

Yes it is a print driver problem, Unplug usb, delete all previous attemps at install, delete print software and drivers, Download and install correct driver from HP, plug in usb only when directed to do so.

How do l download hp laser jet 1018 to mac book air.


The 1018 is not supported by HP with the Mac OS Mountain Lion. I found this on an HP forum and it worked for someone else. You could try this:

Hi,
Thank you for posting,
Unfortunately, HP laserjet 1018 is not suported in Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. How evere you can use the builtin drivers that goes along with the operating system and select teh driver of another printer and check.
Connect the printer to the computer and then go to System Preferences and click on Print and Fax. In the Print Fax window, lick on the Plus sign and you will find the printer, please select the printer and then under print using click on the drop down and click on "Select print Software" and in the list, please select HP Laserjet 1015 pr HP Laserjet 1022 and check.
If you don't find these printers in the list, please download and install the latest print driver version 2.12 from the apple web site using the link below.

After downloading and install the update, please try the steps given above.

HP LaserJet 1018: paper will feed, but no content can be printed


just try to print the self test of the hp 1018 printer.self pest is printed directly from the printer not by giving command from the printer. press any one of the button on the printer and hold it till the light blinks.leave the button when light starts blinking .place the paper in the tray.as soon as you leave the button .a self page will be printed..that is self test.if the self test comes out proper that means its your driver software problem.but if self test also has problem then its the clear problem of dust collected on the printer reading lens due to not using it for 2 years.so the printer needs servicing. get it serviced at local printer repair shop .

Will not print


I believe your problem is the fact the HP 1018 IS NOT a color printer. Black only.

Hp 1018 printer prob


You might need to update the driver. I ran into a similar problem; it seemed to be related to documents that have graphical objects, but I couldn't swear that that was, in fact, the trigger.

Anyway, I got in touch with HP's tech support folks, and a very helpful gentleman by the name of "Andy" ultimately pointed me to a new driver that, in fact, promptly solved this problem.

(There is also a fix for 64-bit Vista that was available before the 32-bit version, in case anyone needs it:

Vista sucks, or your l337 "skills"? Don't blame Microsoft for dodgy 3rd party products ...

Have you installed the new drivers for your HP?

Personally, on all HP Printers, I use only HP products, mainly Jetdirect Print Servers, but you might try creating a TCP Port Printer (via your Printer Install Wizard) and use that. You only need to know the IPAddress of the DLink and the Drivers for the HP Printer.
