Question about HP LaserJet 5L Printer
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.
