Hello,

This is caused by one of two things. First be sure you have the correct printer driver installed, if you have printed to this printer before on this computer then you should be ok here. The other thing would be that the printer lost communications with the computer and when it reconnected the control codes had been lost. To check this, first power off the computer and the printer. Now check the connections between the two, the computer connection should be screwed tight and the printer connection needs to have both clips fastened. Now power up the computer and printer, try a test print, if it prints then you should be good. If you still get the odd print then replace your printer cable, be sure to get one that is rated IEEE1284. This rating insures proper bidirectional communications between the printer and the computer.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Hello, I have a HP LaserJet 5L; I just put in a new cartridge and its printing letters and numbers and not the doc. i'm needing...please help.


This error is not caused by the cartridge, it is either a cable issue or a driver issue. Try reseating the parallel cable on the back of the printer and make sure the cable is securely attached to the parallel port on the computer as well. Also make sure that you are printing with the correct driver.

HP LaserJet 5L wont do anything


First of all, I wouldn't spend 10 cents on this printer at this point, but is there a toner cartridge installed? It could be empty, and it's probably not going to print very well after all this time anyway. Try giving it a few shakes side to side to loosen any toner that may be inside, if that doesn't get it going, then pick up a new laser printer for $70-$100 (basically the price of a replacement toner cartridge)

HP laserjet 5L prints only 2/3 to 3/4 of the page of a 1 page doc


which bit is usually missing?

If it only prints the 1st 3/4 ish of the page then it could either be the page slipping a bit due to poor pick up rollers or much more likely it could be that you are sending a large file to the printer and the printer does not have enough memory.

Try printing in draft or scale down the res/size of the file you are printing

HP Laserjet 5L feeds multiple pages through at a time


It prob. needs an overhaul/reconditioning/cleaning to soften up or replace the rollers and rubber pads in the paper path. I imagine it needs this about every 5-6 years. Don't know if new parts are still available for this great old machine, but it's worth trying to keep it alive, at least until you change computers and don't have a parallel output port anymore ;^).
