Wrong Port when printing

I've got two printer: HP LJ 5100 and HP LJ 1200. I connect 1500 to LP1 and 1200 to LP2. It's oke with 5100 but when adding LJ1200, it took a long time to finish and when printing test page or anything, it had no respond and all the things printed out by HP 5100. I couldn't understand why this happen? Please help!

Assuming you mean you are connecting to two separate parallel ports, then your bios settings may have not been set correctly(duplex operation - bidirectional data allowed) or your ports may have been moved by other added hardware, ie your bios may be poor at doing that especially if the parallel ports are on add in card. but since you gave us none of that information, i would try uninstalling both then just add the 1200 first on the first(other) LPT. see what it manages on the one that works on its own. if its ok which it should be then try adding the 1500 after see what happens to both then.

It seems that I found an imperfect solution. When you intall the printer on your PC and print a testpage, the firmware is sent from PC to printer and is stored in the printers internal memory. When you unplug your printer from your pc and plug it in on your printserver it should work fine as the firmware has been loaded alraedy. You can't switch of the printer nor the printserver or the firmware needs to be uploaded again via your printer. There is no way at the moment to load the firmware upon booting of the printer by the print server. Hopefully this issue will get resolved in the near future.

SOURCE: I cannot print using DP-G310 print server

Sorry but P1005 does not come with its own processor to work of a Print Server, it needs PCs processor to process the printed file and send it in a specified format to it. This makes it cheaper for HP to make printers and sell at a margin because their is no processor in them. You have to get a printer which has a processor to work with a Print Server for instance look for Hp 1300 or HP 1100 series

    Why is my printer showing a idle status and not printing?


    I believe the printer is connected via USB.
    Check in device manager if the LJ 1020 printer is listed.
    If yes, go to the driver properties > ports tab and Select the appropriate port for the printer

    Alternatively, uninstall the full software and reinstall it again from

    If you can see it, it is set up right, however, the configuration might be wrong. Go to printer properties in the control panel. Open up the ports tab, select configure port. You will see that it is probably set: protocol:Raw, port:9100. Sometimes the port is 10001. Otherwise, set it to LPR, and put LP1 for the queue Name. That should do it.
