Delete all the USB ports in the device manager
Restart the computer to let XP install all the USB ports again.
Go to the first USB port and right click on it and go to properties. Then on the advance tab click on do not show warnings.
This should resolve the issue.
Is your PC a Dell by any chance?
If so there is a patch available to fix this also.
Please let me know how you get on.

Printer is too slow to print once the command is given from PC


Hi
While printing from the USB Port sometimes slow printout/data transfer will result in slow printing of print jobs. or The printer might be printing slow , pausing in between print jobs , or intermittent printing. The symptom solution is mention below, read and follow the instruction.

Solution 1

After the printer is installed on the USB Port, check the description under the Ports Tab what is selected. Please refer to the figure below : c00873625.jpg Using the USB/ Virtual Printer Port and DOT4/ HP Laserjet 2420, under the Port/Description Tab printer speed will be as per the standard. Whereas using the DOT4/ Generic IEEE 1284 under Port/Description Tab, Printer speed will be very slow. If DOT4/ Generic IEEE 1284 is selected by default, then you have to uninstall the USB driver from the Device manager and plug in the USB cable again. Then it will detect the printer and USB port with respect to the printer model. Insert the Driver CD as prompted and by default it will select the DOT4 HP LaserJet2420 Port.

Solution 2

  1. Insert the HP LaserJet 2400 print series CD-ROM.
    NOTE: If the HP Software does not automatically start, click Start , Run , and then Browse . Browse to the CD-ROM drive at the top of the window under look in and select Setup.exe .
  2. Select Modify Installation . Figure 1: Modify Installation c00369540.gif

  3. Select the Language of your choice. Figure 2: Select Language c00369541.gif
  4. Click Next. Figure 3: Setup Wizard c00369542.gif
  5. Verify Reinstalling an existing printer is selected. Under Select the port for this printer , choose USB001 or Dot4_00x and click Next . Figure 4: Choose Port c00369543.gif
  6. Select desired Features and click Next . Figure 5: Select Next c00369544.gif
  7. Click Finish . Figure 6: Select Finish c00369545.gif

Hp 3005X PAUSES BETWEEN PRINTING EACH PAGE. Data light is flashing and LED panel displays "processing"


Thank you for contacting FixYa for your printer inquiry.
We have had this problem before. If you install the driver from the hp site, the dot4 port is not installed properly. We had to clean all the dot4 entries out of the registry and install the printer from the cd.
Remove Dot 4 Port Steps:
  1. Click "Start" and then right-click "Computer." Click "Properties" on the pop-up menu.
  2. Click the "Device Manager" link on the left side of the new window.
  3. Double-click the "Ports" sub-heading in "Device Manger." Highlight a USB port that includes "DOT 4" as part of the device description. Right-click on the port devices name, and then click "Uninstall" on the pop-up menu.
  4. Uninstall other existing "DOT4" ports using the same method.
  5. Restart the computer and log in to Windows.
  6. Reinstall the driver software that came with your printer's CD.
The printer now functions properly in Windows.
USB problems are usually fixed by reinstalling the driver, just reboot the machine.
Better still hook the machine up to a LAN this is a network printer.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this printer solution.

HP psc 1205 printer icon on system tray has exclamation mark. Have uninstalled and reinstalled using original software cd but still the same problem. Does this mean sofware error ? Should I uninstall again...


Better is to change USB port position. also ensure USB2.0 support is enabled in your BIOS. If some jobs waiting for print firs discard them and then install, but when you change port device installs automatically. Check cartridges for empty.
