Re: Laserjet 1012 won't work in Vista Home Premium

I found a fix! I was able to load the Laserjet 1015 driver from Vista and it worked! It appears to work on everything we print.
Thanks anyway. I hope this helps someone else.

Hp lj 4 plus accepts print job but does not print Vista Home Premium

Hello charles lewis,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: What you are experiencing is a driver type miss-match. The printer cannot understand the driver language that Vista is providing. Even though it is labeled as HP LaserJet 4 Plus.

I recommend trying the plain HP LaserJet 4 drivers or Lexmark Optra drivers. They may speak the language the printer likes, through Vista. If that does not work; it is time to purchase or use a newer printer.

Have a great day!

I have a HP Laserjet 1012 desktop printer. Are there any windows XP 64 drivers that will allow this printer to work with a XP 64 system?

Welcome to FixYa!

HP Laserjet 1012 does not have a driver for XP 64bit.
HP also does not have driver for Windows 7 32bit and 64bit with this particular printer.
They are urging their consumers to upgrade the printer(s) to a compatible operating system.

TIP: If you are going to install this printer to a Windows 7 operating system, try to using the Vista drivers and install it using the compatibility mode feature of Windows 7.

Thank you for using FixYa!
Keep me posted.

Vista will not print to HP Laserjet 5p

I purchased a Dynex USB to Parallel Converter Cable from Best Buy and tried to connect but had no success. I then sent an email to Dynex customer service and received a reply in about 24 hours. The rep provided spot on instructions which I was able to follow to a tee. My 14 year old HP Laserjet 5P is now ready to run until it blows up.

I spent hours searching web forums and only received overcomplicated replies by people who think they are techies, none of which worked. I am 63 years old and not a techie, so if I can do it, anyone can. I have saved the email and will forward this straightforward simple fix to anyone who needs it. My net cost was $36.00 for the cable.

Problem connecting LaserJet 5L to new HP Pavillion laptop

I have an HP 5L and Vista Premium also. If you would tell me where you did find the driver, I will install it on my computer and possibly solve both of our problems.

Laserjet 1012 doesn't work with Vista

I had the same problem with my few years old Samsung Laser Printer when I switched to Vista. I had to go to the manufacturing site and download a printer driver upgrade to Vista and the printer now works fine.

HP laserjet 1012 printer not working with Windows vista.

Let auto-detect your printer and download the driver automatically.

HP Laserjet 1012 prints background programming, not screen.

Go to the HP website and make sure you have the latest drivers installed. You should be able to let the computer install the drivers automatically once you download them. Also download any other additional software that comes with the printer. Sometimes special print jobs rely on these extra programs.
