Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

Connecting an HPLJ 4 to a iMac

I have a HP LaserJet 4 with 6 mgs of memory and the postscript option.  I bought in new in '93 and it still works as good as it did then.  I have been a PC user for 25 yrs. and have now switched to a Mac.  I bought a iMac with OS X Leopard.  I am trying to get my HPLJ4 to work with my Mac.  I bought a cable that is parallel to USB.  The computer still will not recognize the printer.
The HPLJ4 was not on the printers list.  I called Apple support.  They helped me put the printer on the list.  We then installed the CUPS driver.  The printer printed a test page from the CUPS website but would not print a document from my Mac.  It still said printer not recognized.  They didn't know what else to do.
One forum recommended an ethernet-to-LocalTalk adapter from Asante or Proxim (formerly Farallon).  That is total Greek to me.  As I said I am a former PC user and don't know what they are talking about.
I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

    I have had a few people tell me they have succeeded.  I have another printer so I can take my time trying to find a solution.  I appreciate the input.

To work around this issue, reduce the complexity of your PostScript print job. For example, set the TrueType Font Download option to Automatic, Outline, or Bitmap as follows:
  1. In Control Panel, open the Printers (or Printers and Faxes) folder.
  2. Right-click your PostScript printer, and then click Properties.
  3. Click Printing Preferences, click Layout, and then click Advanced.
  4. Double-click PostScript Options, and then click TrueType Font Download Option.
  5. In the True Type Font Download Option box, click Automatic. If Automatic is already selected, click Outline or Bitmap.
  6. Close the Printer Properties dialog box, and then close Control Panel.
hope this helps you.. please vote.. thanks

HPLJ P2015D and it prints a page that states "insufficient memory"


The printer is telling you that it needs more memory in order to print a job that is too complex to print with the memory it has on board.

DISPLAYS ERROR MESSAGE: W2 INVALID PERS. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AND HOW DO I GET IT TO PRINT?


FROM THE SERVICE MANUAL
W2 INVALID PERS:
The job was not printed because the requested personality,
such as PostScript, was not installed. Install the language in
which the files are sent, together with enough memory to
support that language.
I SUGGEST CHECK IF YOU GOT THE POSTSCRIPT INSTALLED

Mac laptop hooked up to HP laserjet 4 plus gets error message:


This printer will not work with a Mac - it has no postscript.

The only laserjet 4's that work with Macs all have an "M" in their name - 4M, 4M Plus etc.

You might be able to get a Postscript personality module for the printer to effectively upgrade it to the "M" version.

You'll have to use google.com to translate this because I don't speak Spanish, but I used it to translate your text into English.

What you're seeing is PostScript being output to a non-PostScript printer. Mac OS 9 LaserWriter driver prints only PostScript. Make sure you've downloaded the correct driver from HP, and then make sure you're selecting the HP driver in the Chooser.

Please let me know if this information helps or not.
