My printer HP C5280 don't print.It says that there is an error.I've tried reinstalling the driver and other things nothing helped.


An HP deskjet color printer is attached to an NT server on LPT1 and share on a network. It has been working well for sometimes but now, we can no longer print documents from the server console to that printer. No error message is generated. Other Windows 98 users on the network can print to this printer. Both the server and printer have been rebooted several times. Re-installation of the driver was attempted and an "unrecognized option" error was generated. The printer's uninstall program was run and the printer icon remains in the print folder. What is the most probable solution to this printer problem?

This sort of problem is the main reason I don't like to have a network printer attached to a server. It's nice when it works but can be a real pain to troubleshoot when it doesn't. As a general rule, I don't suggest trying to share an inkjet printer unless it has a built-in network jack. I have run into several situations where the bi-directional communication between the printer and the LPT port just doesn't work well in a network situation. Even with improvements in server hardware over the past several years, putting a printer on LPT1 (or any LPT port for that matter) can slow the server down, based on the IRQ normally associated with the parallel port.

If the clients can print to the printer, that would suggest the path over the network is good. I would verify that you have all the latest Windows updates applied to the server. If you have anti-virus installed on the serve (and you probably do), I would apply these updates with the anti-virus disabled. While this shouldn't be a problem, I have had it bite me more than once. After applying the updates and rebooting the server one more time, make sure that you have the latest printer drivers from HP. Disable the anti-virus softwareagain, then reinstall the printer driver to see if you get the same result. If you do get the same error, a check of HP's support web site or a call to HP Support may be in order to do a file/registry level removal of the printer driver information.

While doing this, disconnect the printer from the server or you may end up fighting the operating system trying to rediscover and install printer drivers while you are trying to clear up the initial problem. After completing these and potentially doing another reboot of the server, you might be able to successfully reinstall the printer driver.

Error message from printer properties : Can not print test page. This operation can not be completed. Take note that printer self-test is working and from printing option cleaning cartrige work perfectly....


You need first to do the following:

Check first a different usb cable ( be the case).

Check that the printer is the default printer or you are not printing to a different printer installed in windows

Do driver setup procedure.

Disconnect printer from usb.

Go to 'installed printers' and remove the printer from windows (right click and delete). If you have documents in printer cue you may need to purge documents in cue.

Restart computer (printer disconnected).

Re-install drivers from disk (printer disconnected).

Only connect printer to usb when required by printer install software or after installing software.

If the above did not work the printer can be faulty, in this case usually it shows some dignostic message, like flashing red light etc.

Check also that is not a windows problem, by installing in on a different computer (get a laptop) and printing a test page.
