Question about HP LaserJet 2420dn Printer

1 Answer

Installed on a network....keeps rolling IP

MY hp LaserJet2420dn is installed on my office network and worked fine for some time....recently it's begun moving (apparently on it's own) from one IP address to another.

How can I set it for a static IP address so that I can use it?

If your network is assigned by DHCP have a chance after each shut down your printer will take new IP address...you can set up IP address manually from printer menu using buttons on top.
Just print menu map to see where you can find that option.
Good luck!

My Hp office-jet Pro X576 printer is connected via a network and if l send a print job it displays printer error switch off machine and the printer restarts .if l use usd it works fine


I would ensure that you have the current firmware installed on the printer and make sure that you are sending the job via network with a correct driver. If you manually set the IP address on your computer and the printer you should be able to connect direct using a crossover cable, I do that in the shop all the time.

HP says to use the Vista drivers. You have to install it a a local printer follow these steps....


1. Make sure the printer is turned on and connected to your network. Verify that you can access the printer's internal web page by browsing to its IP address before continuing. Print a network config page or make note of the IP address and Name. (should be a static IP)

2. Click >> Start >> Control panel >> Devices and Printers.

3. Click the Add a printer

4. Select Local printer

5. Select Create a new port and select Standard TCP/IP Port and click Next button.

6. Under Device type, select TCP/IP Device. Under Hostname or IP address, enter the printer's host name (found on the printer's network configuration report the generated above). Click Next.
If you get a message about Additional Port Information Required, then the printer was not found using the host name. You can go back and retry or using the printer's IP address instead of the host name.

7. Select HP or Hewlett-Packard from the list of manufacturers and select and select your printer model. Click Next.

If your printer model was not listed, then select Have Disk, browse the HP CD that came with your printer and select the first file that starts with hp and ends with inf.or use currently installed driver if you have teh correct on installed. Click Open then OK. Select your printer model. Click Next.

8. It will ask for the Printer name -- enter a new name or use the existing one. This will be the name of the printer that you select from other applications.


9. You may be asked to share the printer. Make a choice and click Next.
10. The Print Test Page box appears. Go ahead and print it.

Whay kind of error message are you getting ?
Most of the times the problem is another multifunctional printer or scanner installed on the same computer, so if you do have another printer you will need to uninstall it first, uninstall the 1312 as well and the rerun the installation for the 1312

HP P2015dn wirless connection stopped working


Hi,
There is not wireless netwrok card is HP LJ P2015dn, However as i can understand you r using External Wireless Router or Wireless network or jet-direct card if u r able to work fine on USB than printer printing mechanism is working fine.
If u connect the printer via wired network connection and it keeps on loosing IP address than it may be problem with onboard network card of the printer.
If printer keeps on loosing IP Address than try upgrading the firmware of the printer.
To check the firmware and IP Address of the printer print a configuration page by pressing and holding down green button for 6 to 7 seconds

Can't scan with mfc-7840 w, has worked fine for months, on laptop with xp, was working in another office for last 10days, came back to home office and it can't recognize device at all I can ping IP no...


I had a similar problem. I was able to print and scan for months and then all of a sudden could not scan anymore (from printer or through software interface). I then found out that the IP address for the scanner was not set properly. To fix this, goto control panel and scanner and cameras. Right click on the MFC7840W and select PROPERTIES. On the network setting tab, make sure that the IP address is the same as that on the MFC7840W.

Network Connection (LAN) for HP 650C


Plug it directly into the router and set the printer up on your Win2k/Xp as a network printer via the new printer wizard. The router will allow it to pull an IP number and you will find it on the network that way. It does not have USB because it was meant as an office printer and the option was network adaptor when purchased. If you look at the card in it, you can see it can be swapped out for another adaptor.
