Printer won't print. I had to move the desk and everything was unplugged and now it won't print. It is on, checked as default, on-line, I think it may be the port.

  1. Background
    • HP provides details of the problem on its website. The problem usually occur on PC laptops or when printing across a network. HP offers several fixes for the problem.
    • First, check your Windows print queue and ensure the printer is not set as "Paused" or "Working Offline." This can often clear the problem and resume your printing.

    • The problem can also be caused by printer driver issues. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver. Connecting your printer directly to your computer using a parallel cable may solve the problem, but this may not be practical in all cases as many modern laptop computers do not have a parallel port.
    • 1 "Power Cycle" Your printer. Shut down the printer, unplug the power cord from the socket, give it 5 minutes, plug it in again and turn it back on. Try to print.
    • 2 If the printer still won't process a job, shut down and restart your computer.
    • 3 Check your printer cable connections to the computer.
    • 4 Check the printer for any paper jams, check the trays, and also pull out the toner cartridge and/or remove any paper jam, if you find one. Put the cartridge back in. Then try to print.
    • 5 If after completing the steps above, the printer is still not working, click "Start," then "Settings," click "Printers," and the printer folder will open. Make sure your HP LaserJet 5 is selected as the default printer.
    • 6 Double-click your printer, and delete everything from the print queue, canceling all the print jobs. Close out the queue.
    • 7 Right-click on your printer icon and make sure it's not offline. If it is, then click "use this printer online."
    • 8 Right-click your printer, and click properties. Make sure the right port is selected for your LaserJet 5 Printer. If you are using a parallel cable, you are most likely using an LPT port; if USB, then look for a USB connection in the list. If the port connection is correct, try to print again.
    • 9 It's still not printing? Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Double-click "Programs and Features" or "add or remove programs," uninstall your Laserjet printer software, and restart your computer.
    • 10 Insert your Laserjet software and driver disk. Proceed to reinstall your printer software and drivers. Then test the printer again. If it is still not working, you probably will have to seek professional assistance.

Printer is paused all the time

Hello, sounds like your drivers are messed up, reload them to the computer or the connection cable maybe bad. If neither of these fix then the printer is bad.

Acts like it is printing but does not apply ink has new cartridge and goes though the motions of printing but does not seem to be getting the ink spit signal to the cartridge.

I would try another cartridge especially if it is a refilled one. I don't think there is one "ink spit" signal, rather several so one would not stop it. In any case, probably not the printer but the cartridge that is failing. The refilled cartridges somehow bypass the ink available signal from the cartridge and the printer thinks everything is ok, sending firing signals to an empty cartridge. That's why I try another or try this one in another printer, if possible. If it is something wrong in the printer, a new printer is cheaper than the repair would be.

Problem with HP Laserjet 4L series

Take a moment and double click on that printer icon. That will open the Print Queue.

If there is a job sitting in the queue, then highlight it and delete it.

You should have gotten an installation CD with the printer. First, find the installation CD. Once you have that, follow the steps given by the tech.

Printer don?t print

Hi, the problem can be related to any of a number of things. First of all make sure that there isn?t any extraordinary LED blinking. Every LED has a troubleshoot in the manual(which you can download here on Fixya). If there?s no blinking going on check for the following: The power supply to the printer, along with the line(cable and socket). That the ink cartridges fit well. You have paper in the tray, and there?s none stuck inside. The printer cover is well shut. All parts are well connected(such as the paper tray) If everything seems to be in order try connecting it to another computer? maybe the USB connection isn?t a 100 percent, and the communication between computer and printer is at fault, or there?s some software problems, or anything that?s computer related. Could also be router or print server problems if you are using either one. Check out the troubleshoot pages for your router here in Fixya, they contain reference to that on some routers.
