Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

2 Answers

I purchased an HP LaserJet Printer back at the end of 2006. I was able to use this printer under Windows 7 until I attempted to use it with a different Internet configuration that requires DHCP to be enabled. After enabling DHCP, I cannot print anything. Is it possible to configure an HP LaserJet 2600n Printer to run under Windows 7 with DHCP enabled. If so, how do I do this? This printer is no longer supported or marketed by HP. Since this printer predates Windows 7, there is no HP documentation for how to install or use this printer under Windows 7. Richard A. Landkamer

    Most recent posting:

    Some of the previous experiences reported by people, who initially encountered essentially the same problem that I now have, were that they first had to install a USB port connection from their computer to their HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer, and then subsequently install their IP connection to this printer which then worked. But without first installing this USB port connection to their HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer, these people were unable to connect to their printer using their IP connection. Yet I never had to install this USB port connection before installing my IP connection to my HP LaserJet 2600n Printer back when I did not have DHCP enabled on my computer.

    Various solutions used by people who first had to install a USB port connection to their HP LaserJet 2600n Printer, in order to subsequently get their IP connection to this printer to work, are described on the following two web pages:
    http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printer-All... and
    http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-print...

    I wonder if there might be an important clue here: Could it be that those people who first had to install a USB port connection to their HP LaserJet 2600n Printer, in order to subsequently get their IP connection to this printer to work, did have DHCP enabled on their computers. If so, then I might yet be able to use an IP connection on my two computers to connect to my HP LaserJet 2600n Printer. Unfortunately, I do not have a USB cable with a small enough connection to connect to my HP LaserJet 2600n Printer, so I am unable to test this theory myself. I understand that there are two sizes of connections for USB cables, i.e., the larger size is for the current USB 2.0, and the smaller size is for the previous USB 1.6 - if I remember correctly.

    and especially at http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-print... .

    What is not divulged in any of the discussions on any of these web pages is whether DHCP was enabled or disabled for anyone who was able to print with an IP connection. Here are some points to remember that pertain to my particular situation:

    (1) I never used a USB connection, and was able to get my printer to work OK under Windows 7 with an IP connection as long as DHCP was not enabled.

    (2) My current Internet service requires that DHCP must be enabled, and was originally enabled on my Dell Laptop computer, but not on my HP Desktop computer.

    (3) I cannot print anything with an IP connection that has DHCP enabled, since DHCP overrides any previous IP address setting for my printer.

    (4) From the above postings I suspect that I could get my printer to work with a USB connection that uses an LCP Port. Unfortunately, I cannot find a USB cable that will connect to my computer. However, it should not be difficult or expensive to purchase a USB cable that will connect to my printer, so I can then do some testing with a USB connection.

    (5) If I can get a USB connection to work, then here are the advantages and disadvantages of using this approach:

    Advantages: Purchasing 1 or 2 USB cables would be much cheaper than purchasing a new printer and a lot of expensive consumables for that printer.

    Disadvantages: A USB cable would always have to be connected directly from my computer to my printer in order to be able to print anything. This defeats the whole purpose of wanting to do any printing in a wireless Internet connection environment.

    (6) If I can get a USB connection to work, my present inclination is to use the USB connection approach until I can use all of the consumables that I have previously for my HP Color LaserJet Printer. Then I will purchase a new printer that will function with an IP connection with DHCP enabled under Windows 7. Unfortunately, I have previously purchased perhaps a year's supply of consumables (i.e., printer cartridges) for my current printer.

    It was when my new ISP required that DHCP be enabled in the Network configuration that my printer stopped working. Prior to that there was a static IP address for the printer in the Network configuration. When I enabled DHCP, this static IP address was overridden. Unless there is somewhere else where this static IP address for my printer can be specified under Windows 7 with DHCP enabled, I cannot see any way that my HP LaserJet Printer can connect to either of my two computer using an IP type of connection.

    This HP LaserJet Printer is also supposed to support some entirely different type of connection that uses a USB Port. I have never attempted to use this other alternative connection.

    I attempted to post the following 3 additional updates very early today shortly after 2:10 AM , but I cannot find any of these 3 updates when I got up this morning, and checked to see what had been posted regarding this problem.

    I originally attempted to get these updates posted by Scott of your "FixYa Customer Support", since he sent me an email around 1:00 PM on November 13, 2010, containing the statement: "Please do not hesitate to contact us directly at premium.support@fixya.com for further assistance." However, none of these subsequent updates were ever posted by Scott, as I had originally requested.

    The only
    subsequent response that I received regarding my attempts to post these 3 updates to this problem was from was from Amy of your "FixYa Premium Support" around 2:10 AM today, November 15, 2010, which in essence stated that I should post these 3 updates myself. I then attempted to do so, but so far without any success. What good is your "FixYa Premium Support" if the original poster cannot get any update information posted regarding the original problem?

For use printer you need to give static ip address to your printer. Set ip address in the range of lan set subnet mask same in all devices ,Set gateway as your router ip address in the ip property of printer. Then you can use your printer with static ip of printer. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi,

Hp2600n is host based. It would not work properly with DHCP. If the printers use DHCP, I would suggest assigning a manual (static) IP to the printers and see, if that makes a difference.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Is my HP 1300 printer compatible with Windows 7? I have the disc but it won't install.


If you cannot find a Windows 7 printer driver from the HP WEB site, then HP consider this printer too old or incompatible with Windows 7. They would like you to upgrade and purchase a new printer.
You can download the HP printer drivers from their supportWEB site. Please click on this link and

Can't get my old hp laserjet 1000 series printer to work with my.


The original solution was to "download the Windows Vista drivers. These drivers will work with Windows 7".

There are Windows 7 drivers available now, so here is the link.
There are two different sets. One for 32bit Windows 7 and 64bit Windows 7.
To determine which version of Windows 7 you have:
Find the Computer menu item in the start menu by clicking on the Flag button in the lower left corner.
Right click on "Computer" and select properties from the list in the contents menu.
You will see under the System section a mention of the System type.57de736.jpg
Download the matching driver.
Thank you for using FixYa.
