Check the print settings to be sure you are printing in black and white, not grayscale. Instead of clicking the printer icon to print, use the File, Print menu selections to bring up the print settings window.

Change the USB cable. The cable you are using isn't sending data BACK to the computer that tells the computer that the printer is ready, and you have to reset, Change the USB cable for a NEW one, and then your computer will talk to your printer and vice-versa.

Laser jet 2430tn printing slow


Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.

Printer will not print, I have downloaded the driver for this modle


Try to print on a self test, all printers can print without using the computer please check your manual on how to self test the printer without using the computer.
If your using a cable plugged in directly to the computer use another port then test to print. If still same you might have print in queue on your computer you have to restart the spooler on your computer so you can print.
You can check on this website so you have an idea.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Every printer has a unique print driver on computer, and each and every printer uses a different one, so there goes it cant be my computer. The way to tell if it is a printer or computer problem on your machine is to Turn off, unplug from computer, ensure your printer has paper, power it on, wait for ready/online lamp, then press the "go" button 5 times super FAST. Status page should print if it does, then your problem is in fact the computer or the print driver not installed correctly on your computer, as I suspect may be the case.

Post back once you have verified if you have a printer or a computer problem.
