Re: hp laserjet 2300n

Does this printer also have a parallel and/or USB port? If so, try printing to it via one of those methods to see if the printer itself is functioning.
I've seen this before with a 2200dn where the JetDirect box stopped responding, thus rendering the network side of it inoperable. If you have more of these printers it might be worth switching JetDirect boxes (if they're removable, as on the 2200dn) to see if that isolates the problem to a specific part of the printer (remembering the IP address stays with the JetDirect; not the printer!)
IIRC, replacement JetDirects for these printers are becoming hard to find, and expensive.

Lcd error

Press the engine test button and see if a page of lines prints out. if it does then likely the formatter has failed. Try removing any extra memory or jet direct cards that are installed and restart the printer. This model shipped with a 615 jet direct card and they fail often.

How do I fix a squealing hp laserjet 2300n

What sort of squealing? While it prints, when you first turn it on? The time during printing would tell a lot about what it is. Post back some better details and I might be steer you in the right direction.

Hp Laserjet 2300n printer with error 81.0180 EIO 1 ERROR

You have a problem with the device plugged into EIO slot 1. Most likely it's a JetDirect card. Turn power off and reseat the card. Power up, if problem is still there put the card in the other EIO slot. There should be 2 EIO slots. If it still fails you will have to replace the JetDirect

Receiving a Communication Network Error on our Sharp MX 2300N only on the weekends. According to the tech this particular machine does not have a setting for work days only, which apparently is optional in...

Sounds like it's a network issue. If it's a CE-00 error, it's a definite communication error between the copier and the server.

To my best knowledge there are no optional work day on/off settings on this copier. There are power save settings, but nothing to shut them down or denote power save settings for weekends only.

It sounds like something in your server setup is shutting down or disconnecting during the weekends. I'd contact your IT department to find out if they have something set up that could be causing this error specifically for the weekends.

first of all try changing the cartridge, after that, if the problem were still there, maybe your laser is damaged.

I would recommend that you perform a power cycle by unplugging the printer for 60 seconds then restarting your computer, logging back in....then plug your printer back into your computer, If that does not work I would also try going to clicking Software & Driver Downloads on your right corner of your browser of the HP website then typing in the product which is "Laserjet 1200" then choose your current operating system then download the full driver device.
