Question about HP LaserJet 1100 Printer

HP laserjet 1100 won't print from Vista laptop

I purchased a new Vista Gateway laptop , bought a DB25 connector cable to connect the HP's existing cable and plugged it into the USB port. At first the pc found and installed the printer, but when i printed my ivoice from quickbooks they came out garbled. Eventually the printed correctly. A while later I printed another one, garbled again.
The next day I rebooted both pc and printer, no the device is offline and I can't print at tall. Any ideas!!
Am I going to need to buy a newer laserjet?

Which version of QuickBooks are you using? Anything older than 2008 will not work with vista.

HP LaserJet 2430 Printer Will Not Print since USB Power Surge Error


INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT
If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

How to connect to the computer?


Devices: Canon CanoScan FB330P/FB630P Color Flatbed Scanners

Check pages 22-23 of this copy of your Canon Canoscan 630P Product Guide.

You'll need an "IBM-type" parallel printer cable - with a DB25 on each end, and your computer will also need to have an "IBM-type" DB-25 parallel printer port.

What the Canon Product Guide fails to mention is that this "IBM-type" printer cable is a kluged Centronics parallel printer cable, but became so popular (on older computers - your laptop may not have this port), that it got an IEEE standard: IEEE 1284 (with DB25 connectors on both ends).

You'll need a DB25-to-DB25 M/F cable, meaning DB25 connectors on both ends, with a Male on one end, and a Female on the other end.
The Male DB25 will plug into the Female DB25 connector on your computer/laptop, with the Female DB25 going to the FB630P Color scanner..
Here are some pictures/pricing:
http://www.computercablestore.com/IEEE_1284_Printer_DB25_to_DB25_catID2134.aspx

The nice thing about the design of the Canon FB630P Color Scanner is that the scanner also has a Female DB25 Printer port for an existing parallel printer, so when you connect an FB330P/FB630P to your system, your existing parallel printer is daisy-chained through this port - so you needn't give up you printer (to scan), nor must you install another parallel printer port onto your PCI-bus tower PC to keep your printer.

Canon Canoscan FB330P/FB630P Color Scanner Product Guide (82 pages):
http://canoncanada.custhelp.com/ci/fattach/get/267/

Most modern printers are USB-attached to laptop systems, so you may need an adapter, an example of which is seen here:

Vista will not print to HP Laserjet 5p


I purchased a Dynex USB to Parallel Converter Cable from Best Buy and tried to connect but had no success. I then sent an email to Dynex customer service and received a reply in about 24 hours. The rep provided spot on instructions which I was able to follow to a tee. My 14 year old HP Laserjet 5P is now ready to run until it blows up.

I spent hours searching web forums and only received overcomplicated replies by people who think they are techies, none of which worked. I am 63 years old and not a techie, so if I can do it, anyone can. I have saved the email and will forward this straightforward simple fix to anyone who needs it. My net cost was $36.00 for the cable.

Is the drivers of P2015 correctly installed on vista? If yes then you have to check your printer USB cable. Try to change it and see the result.

Check the HP website and see if there are Vista drivers for your model. If you installed them from the disk they're likely not compatible.
