Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer

1 Answer

Long wait time

HP laserjet 2420 display says...
"processing" --> long wait time --> data received --> short wait time --> processing --> short time --> print.

This happens even when printing a small text doc (a few words).

Hi there just check that within the properties of the print drive located in printers and faxes right hand click on the printer select the Advance tab at the top then make sure that the spool is either set to start printing after last or after first. Click on the print processor button at the bottom and change the graphic output to one of the other option then close and try the machine.. Once you have selected all of the options and you still have mo joy try a different data cable or connect via another port.


Hope this helps you
Thanks J

Laserjet 2420d just keeps printing document repeatedly from XP


check hp for latest driver for your operating system, also check if there is a PCL and PS driver. PS is better for PDF. sometimes an adobe update can cause these issues so if you cannot find a driver update you could roll back adobe to see if that fixes your issue.

My hp 2420 printer show me an error 49.2FD9


power on your printer, after you see processing data the second time, press cancel.
Everytime I have seen this error is because the user tries to print a PDF file that is corrupt.
This has worked for me in the past.
