Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

HP CLJ 2600n printer seems to be recognized on the network, won't print a test page or anything else from my HP Pavilion laptop with Windows Vista; automated troubleshooting tool says it finds nothing wrong. I printed config page using the printer's buttons and have the current IP address entered in when I installed the driver. My Mac laptop prints to this same printer every time. I can print wirelessly or connected with a Cat 5 cable using the Mac. The Windows laptop is very erratic. I have installed the driver's multiple times over the past year. Today, the original CD that came with the printer would not install. The install failed each time I tried. I found the most current driver online, then I downloaded and installed that driver. I want this to work wirelessly which it has done in the past. I have also tried using a Cat 5 cable between the Linksys router and the laptop. Didn't work. I tried bypassing the network and connecting the printer directly to the laptop with a Cat 5 cable. Didn't work. The green light on the ethernet port on the laptop shows green when I plug the cable into the computer. The green light is active if I am plugged into the Linksys router or directly to the printer. Thanks to anyone willing to help me fix this situation.

Can't print to HP 2600n over network


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.

When you print a test page from the general tab of the printer properties dialogue, it completely bypasses the print spooler. Since your test pages print correctly, this tells us quite a bit. Some of it good and some of it bad.

The Good:

The printers, base driver install, connections and protocols are all functioning correctly.

The Bad:

The printers, base driver install, connections and protocols are all functioning correctly making it much more difficult to pinpoint the problem.

JetDirect printing through the print spooler can be trouble prone with no clear solution. The fact that the 2600n is a host based GDI printer can make it even more so however I still have a couple of things to try.

1-Search for Localspl.dll and check the version number, file size etc. etc. If it is anything other than:

(32 bit x86)
Localspl.dll 5.2.3790.4046 342,016 23-Mar-2007 20:24 x86

Or:

(64 bit x64)
Localspl.dll 5.2.3790.4046 750,080 23-Mar-2007 22:15 x64

then request a copy of this file from Microsoft here:

https://support.microsoft.com/contactus2/emailcontact.aspx?scid=sw;[LN];1414&from=KBHotfix&WS=hotfix

See KB934885 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934885
for more info. You may want to try the registry tweak there to see if it can help pinpoint the problem as well.

2-Download the latest firmware for the 2600n from HP. There have been at least 2 firmware updates that I know of for this printer. I don't know if any of the updates fixed issues with network printing but at this point it can't hurt.

Firmware: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=446153&prodNameId=446154&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ly-32271-4

Photosmart 3310 is on network but not recognized wirelessly


Sounds like another Vista Bug, i would check the HP site for this issue and if its under warranty, contact HP. If you have alot of Blue tooth devices hooked up, it may be that its trying to use another device in its place or the signals are getting crossed, im not positive.

Its like when you have to many network drives all hooked up and you plug in a USB device, Windows pops up those anoying bubles saying its detected, but in My computer it doesnt show.

So bassically you have to right click my computer, manage, disk management listed uder storage, right click on the device or drive and change the drive letter to something like " W" or " Z" or anything not in use.

It may be a siomilar case with your bluetooth, youo may have to much stuff connected. Try redoing everything like you have so many other times before, and then limiting how many bluetooth devices you have connected at the same time. see if theres a difference.

Hope this helps.
