Initially check whether the printer is accessible from workstation .ie ping the ip address of the printer.If the ping is fine.Then there is a problem related to the drivers compatibility.If the printer worked before updating the driver then try by roll backing the driver to previous version.If you can't able to reach printer with ping check the network connections and the ip address.

Your problem is with the driver, possible there might be registry issues which makes the hardware to malfunction. Sometimes this problem is caused when you update the drivers with the wrong updates (32 bit 64 cases or os conflict). Uninstall the driver and reinstall it. If it's in the network, do it from the server, but if the drivers to be updated from the server is not compatible with the Xp sp3, then do it from your workstation. Otherwise, you'll need to re-configure everything. You can also try a system restore, in most drivers issues, simple "System Restore" can easily fix. I would like to suggest to run a system registry cleaner so that there would be no more registry problem/issues in your system. Good luck.

SOURCE: Can't print on Network LaserJet Printer

If it worked before you updated the driver, go into the Device Manager and roll back the driver to the previous version. Sometimes new drivers haven't been fully tested, or they may contain bugs or may just be incompatible with an application that you happen to be running. If the old driver version works, stick with that.

Printer won't print. I had to move the desk and everything was unplugged and now it won't print. It is on, checked as default, on-line, I think it may be the port.


  1. Background
    • HP provides details of the problem on its website. The problem usually occur on PC laptops or when printing across a network. HP offers several fixes for the problem.
    Software
    • First, check your Windows print queue and ensure the printer is not set as "Paused" or "Working Offline." This can often clear the problem and resume your printing.

    Resolution
    • The problem can also be caused by printer driver issues. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver. Connecting your printer directly to your computer using a parallel cable may solve the problem, but this may not be practical in all cases as many modern laptop computers do not have a parallel port.
Instructions
    • 1 "Power Cycle" Your printer. Shut down the printer, unplug the power cord from the socket, give it 5 minutes, plug it in again and turn it back on. Try to print.
    • 2 If the printer still won't process a job, shut down and restart your computer.
    • 3 Check your printer cable connections to the computer.
    • 4 Check the printer for any paper jams, check the trays, and also pull out the toner cartridge and/or remove any paper jam, if you find one. Put the cartridge back in. Then try to print.
    • 5 If after completing the steps above, the printer is still not working, click "Start," then "Settings," click "Printers," and the printer folder will open. Make sure your HP LaserJet 5 is selected as the default printer.
    • 6 Double-click your printer, and delete everything from the print queue, canceling all the print jobs. Close out the queue.
    • 7 Right-click on your printer icon and make sure it's not offline. If it is, then click "use this printer online."
    • 8 Right-click your printer, and click properties. Make sure the right port is selected for your LaserJet 5 Printer. If you are using a parallel cable, you are most likely using an LPT port; if USB, then look for a USB connection in the list. If the port connection is correct, try to print again.
    • 9 It's still not printing? Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Double-click "Programs and Features" or "add or remove programs," uninstall your Laserjet printer software, and restart your computer.
    • 10 Insert your Laserjet software and driver disk. Proceed to reinstall your printer software and drivers. Then test the printer again. If it is still not working, you probably will have to seek professional assistance.

I have changed my pc, reconnected my hp laserjet 4250, installed drivers but now although the option for print both sides is clicked it doesn't print it. Any ideas??? Cause i have to print a 500 pages book...


There isn't too much to go on in your description. Taking a guess that you are running Windows....and if you are printing from Word...and that your printer has a duplexer sticking out the back...click on the Print icon/select the printer/select properties/select finishing/check "print both sides". Select OK, select print.

Try turning Duplex off at the printer. See if that does what you want.

Watermark problem


Sounds like a print driver problem. If the driver sits on a server and used by others do they have the same problem. If so, delete driver on server and reinstall. If the print driver is loaded individually on each pc - you will need your driver deleted and reinstalled (preferably from a different source). Hope this helps.
