I have a client who has an HP printer on the network, 5 people can print fine and 3 can't. When I use the install disc it goes all the way to the finish but right at the end it says cant finish install an error occured!!!
Could it be conflicting with the HP Director and Photo Viewer????

The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.
In XP go to START > CONTROL PANEL > NETWORK CONNECTIONS > LOCAL AREA CONNECTION
you should see a menu showing your network card and a window that says stuff like Client for Microsoft Windows. Below that window is an INSTALL button. Click on that and double click PROTOCOL. Select IPX/SPX NetBios and hit OK. You'll probably need the WindowsXP CD to finish installing the protocol.
The LJ5000 is a very old printer and if I remember correctly, it uses the IPX/SPX Netbios language to communicate through a network. Netbios is not installed by default in XP.
I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
The unit has a bad formatter. The formatter generally comes with memory installed Part# Q7848-31004. Part is super easy to change 6 phillips head screws and 3 cables (ribbon, 6 pin, and 3 or 4 pin power) Remove formatter cover the remove formatter door by opening then lifting up, then unplug the 3 cables then remove the 6 screws. Install is reverse of removal.
hi friend u have to do this 1.plge in ur usb printer cable on usb port 2.do not on ur printer 3 put ur printer cd in ur cd rom drive 4install ur printer software 5 in between the installtion ask to u power on ur printer then u have to on ur printer 5 completing the printer installtion
actually it may be a network problem. I have had 10-15 machines go down and lose the printers at the same time in a hospital and the sloution was to turn them all off and on to reset it. Sometimes it would happen 3-4 times a month. A glitch in the network.
