Assuming that you are using windows platform, when USB cable removed and inserted, computer must make a sound signaling a USB device is inserted. If no sound or visual experienced, try another USB port and/or change cable.

Otherwise, (also assuming that there are no warning lights on the printer) you may want to rremove printer queue and re-install the driver.

Good luck

I still cannot print


Reboot the computer if the printer is local. Or, type services.msc in run / search. Scroll down to Print Spooler and start by right clicking. You have a bigger problem if this fails to start. Like you may not be an Administrator.

Starting the Print Spooler on a networked printer (at work) is the same, only it must be done by an IT admin on the Print Server.

I have been having a ton of trouble with my HP 1020 printer, first it was the spooler sub system and I finally fixed that, now i am just getting a error and no print or nothing. What can I do?


Try uninstalling the printer software and reboot the computer. Then go ahead and reinstall the software. Make sure that the printer is set as the default printer for windows.

Printer Spooler/Unwanted print job


Canceling print jobs can be frustrating - slow even when it works. Follow these steps exactly, and you're home free.
(I'm assuming you use XP, and if XP Pro that you have administrator permissions.)

- Start Button
- Accessories > Administrative Tolls > Services
- Click one time on Print Spooler in the list of services on the right (they are alphabetical)
- In the column on the left, click "Restart"
- When the progress bar diappears, you should be OK.

HP Laserjet 1012 prints background programming, not screen.


Go to the HP website and make sure you have the latest drivers installed. You should be able to let the computer install the drivers automatically once you download them. Also download any other additional software that comes with the printer. Sometimes special print jobs rely on these extra programs.

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
