Work with Leopard?

Is there any way to get my hp LaserJet 1012 to work with Mac OS Leopard?

    My HP 1012 worked great for 2 years, then suddenly stopped working.  I'm wondering if it had something to do with a system update.  I hooked it up to a Windows machine, and it printed just fine.  In desperation, I reinstalled Leopard, and still no luck.  I get an "Opening Printer Connection Error" every time.  Grrrr!

Apparently, with Leopard, you should be able to just plug in your USB cable and it will register. Go to Settings, then Print/Fax and click on the Add button. Make sure that the USB cable is attached securely both at the printer and the computer. I struggled with this for at least two hours, before my husband came home to fix it and it just worked. Very annoying.

Depends on which version of MAC OS you are using. Latest versions such as Snow Leopard HP appears to only offer printer drivers and no other software.

No up to date print drivers for hp laser jet 3330 for mac os 10.5

Its a huge posibility that the drivers you are currently using is not compatible with the device. There are many reasons for the same:
  • The drivers installed is not compatible with the windows installed on the computer.
  • Incorrect drivers installed.
To avoid this problem, visit the following link and download the drivers for your printer and I am sure you will face no problem.

Note: Make sure you download the drivers based on the operating system installed on your computer (like Windows XP, Vista, etc)
