Question about HP LaserJet P2014 Printer

2 Answers

We have a HP LaserJet P2014 that is installed via a USB cable to a Windows XP Professtional Service Pack 3 PC. The printer is shared so that 2 other people can connect to it over the network. However, the 2 PC's that connect to it over the network keep losing the connection and you have to keep deleting the printer icon and reconnect it. Please note that the printer works fine on the machine that it is directly connected to.

It sounds as if your network connections are "going to sleep".

This is a "on by default" to save power.

In device manager on each PC right click the network inface card and disable power saving.

If you require step by step instrcutions please ask and state your version of windows on each PC

Hi,

With that, you need to install the printer into your windows 7 computer and windows vista computer.
Even though the printer is installed into your windows xp computer wirelessly and set up as shared printer, you still need to install it on to your other computer because you need to install the driver and other printer's software to maximize the features.

Since the printer is already connected, you just need to run the appropriate installation package, the one that's compatible with your Operating System, and install it via Wireless or via Network. For the correct installation package. You can download it from the hp website and check the Support and Driver's section.

Cheers!

How can I share my HP officejet 5610 all in one printer that is connected to my desktop that has windows XP with my windows vista laptop?


1. Unplug your USB cable from the back of the Windows XP PC and plug the USB cable directly into your Windows Vista PC.
2. The Windows Vista drivers for your printer should be automatically loaded and your printer will be installed on your Windows Vista PC. If this was successful, skip right to step 3.
If step 2 is not successful

i. Download the Windows Vista printer driver for your printer from
the manufacturers website.

1. If your printers manufacturer has not created a Vista driver
yet, retry step 2.

ii. Install the driver on your Windows Vista PC. During
installation, youll be prompted to connect the printer to your PC.
Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.

3. After installation is complete, open the Printers icon in the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right-click on your printer that was just installed and choose Properties.
5. Navigate to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, then select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the Port Name, enter the exact network path and share name of your printer. (ex. - \\HOMEPC\Printer2) 8. Click OK and make sure that this new port is selected with a check in the checkbox.
9. Click Apply and then OK to close the printer properties.
10. You should now be able to print from your Windows Vista PC to a shared printer located on your Windows XP PC.

It sounds like an issue with the spooler service on Windows.
You will have to download the tool kit to run it. It states for windows server 2003 but will also work on xp Her is the link fo rthe download:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9D467A69-57FF-4AE7-96EE-B18C4790CFFD&displaylang=en

here is a link with direction for running it on xp


http://www.windowsreference.com/windows-xp/how-to-clean-print-spooler-in-windows-xp2003/



When you run it it will ask you if you are sure you want to delete spooler files. clcik yes. When it asks if you want to delete USB monitor click on no.
Thisis the fix for the print spooler issue after you run the cleanspl.exetool and wipe out all the ports. You have to add back in the USB portmanually.

Run regedit. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/Print/Monitors.Look for a USB Monitor entry. Before doing anything else, backup theregistry entry by right clicking on "Monitors" and selecting "Export".Give it a name and locaction so that you can put it back if you haveproblems later. If "USB Monitor" is not there, add it by right-clickingon Monitors, New, Key. Name the new key "USB Monitor". Once added,right click on the new key and select New, String Value. Name the newvalue "Driver". In the right portion of regedit, right click on the new"Driver" value and select "Modify". Make the value data "usbmon.dll".If there is an "HPUMON" entry (or the like), delete it. Disconnect theUSB cable to the printer. Run the "scrubber" or clean utility, rebootthe machine. Reconnect the printer and install the driver software permanufacturer instuction. This fixed my problem. Good luck!
