Question about HP LaserJet 2300N Printer
I had a power cut at work at weekend, when i came back in work today all the servers had restarted but the 1 printer doesn't seem to be working, All the other printers are on the same server and they seem to be fine, the printer works thru the options on the printer itself but i cant ping it or print anything,
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.
