Question about HP LaserJet 5p Printer

1 Answer

Print is garbled with PJL commands

Hi,

I printed an adobe tax document (form 1120), and on the third page the printer began to have trouble. Since this print, the printer has printed only garbage. I had it networked using a printer hub. I printed directly using a parallel LPT1 port. I used three different computers. I print from DOS, Winodws 2000, and Notepad. Nothing works. The only thing that does not print garbled is the printer test page that is initiated from the printer.

I tried the reset button - no result. How can I reset it back to factory default? Why did this document hose it?

Thanks.

    The consensus is the printer needs a formatter.

My mac does not send print to the kyocera 7040cdn - rather than print the document I send it prints a whole load of code about the detail in the file - the fonts etc...and takes about 12 mins to print


Typically this kind of behavior when printing indicates that either the print driver is not compatible or corrupt, or the print job contains incompatible PJL commands that the printer cannot interpret. If it worked previously, try printing a different document first as the best first troubleshooting step. If it fails as well, then I would uninstall and reinstall the print driver. Check the manufacturer's website for the current recommended driver.

Just installed adobe acrobat 6.0. Whenever it try to convert a word file into PDF it says, there is a problem and has to run in 'repair' mode. It then instructs me to restart the computer once it has...


May be your converter is first trying to locate some specific version of Acrobat Reader and then do the conversion and Acrobat 6 might not be the required version.

You can try PDF printer and you just have to do print of any word file and it will print the file and save in form of pdf document

can try one such printer http://www.bullzip.com/products/pdf/info.php

The printer is printing an addition page each time a page is sent


Are you using a custom written language application or are you using an application such as Word?

It appears that you are using a PJL wrapper around the print job. Please create a print to file (off of the driver screen) and send it to me at janddgasrepair@verizon.net. I'll be able to look at the job and see what ie happening.

Right now I suspect that you are not clearing out the PJL properly.

HP LaserJet 3330 prints a configuration page after each print job


If you scroll through the menu functions to service, you can restore factory defaults. If you use the fax function you'll need to run the AiO assistant again. It may take care of it. I didn't see anything on the config page or the menu structure page that would indicate an option to require a print report after each document.

LaserJet 5p extra page prints first with code


When you get that kind of information those are instructions to the printer. It has been my experience that the drivers loaded for the printer are not the correct ones. Check to make sure that you have the drivers for a HP 5P printer and verify that is what kind a printer you have.

Trouble printing a thicker form


Hi,
I have come accross this problem on a number of sites. It may be the Paper Out sensor. It works by emitting light from one half of the sensor reflectiong it of the paer and picking it up with the other half of the sensor. When no paper is present, the light cannot reflect and hense a paper out error is reported. I have seen this error occur when paper with dark backing ( like that for bank and tax forms ) is used.
