Since you did not mention the operating system of yourcomputer, I assume that is a Windows XP. Please check if your computer isgetting the right IP address of your printer. Print a network setup page andcheck the correct IP under TCP/IP section. To check on your computer, go to printer and faxes,right click on the Lexmark printer and select properties. Click on the portstab, check the IP address, if not you may add another port and use the correctIP. For additional assistance, please contact LexmarkTechnical Support.

These instructions generally apply to all networkprinters with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJetprinters, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer. To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect printserver) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer's menu and enablethe Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore,configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of yournetwork. Eg. If your IP's are then set the network card to a highnumber say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the sameIP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to If you have a wireless router then check the IP addressrange that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure thestatic IP address in the printer's network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver onyour computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cableto the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - rightclick on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on AddPort.
6. In available ports - click onStandard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IPaddress of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enablebi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configurethe printer's TCP/IP port as previously detailed.Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Network printer if print test page printing normaly if print pdf or word not printing !!

The test page comes from the printer itself. If the printer is on a network you need to re-establish it on the network using its IP address. If it is a network printer on one computer, you need to redownload the software.

You should also go to Settings/Printers and make sure the machine itself is the default printer rather than some type of Windows virtual printer like 'Print to File' or 'Print to PDF', Print to Fax' or a printer that is no longer there.

I need to reset the NVRAM

Resetting or reinitializing the network card's NVRAM will clear all TCP/IP configuration information. To have a record of this information, it is recommended that you print a network settings page prior to performing the reset procedure. Press pattlnk_8302006_1627-e120con.jpg to print both printer and network settings pages.
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press the left front cover release button and pull the front door down.
  3. Press and hold pattlnk_8302006_1721-e120can.jpg while powering the printer On.
  4. Release pattlnk_8302006_1722-e120can.jpg when the pattlnk_8302006_1723-exclam.jpg LED is illuminated. NOTE: Be patient as the LEDs will light up in multiple patterns before finally stopping at pattlnk_8302006_181-exclam.jpg
  5. Close the front cover. NOTE: Observe that the pattlnk_8302006_1735-e120con.jpg, pattlnk_8302006_1735-rdydta.jpg, pattlnk_8302006_1736-tonrlow.jpg and pattlnk_8302006_1739-rmvpr.jpg LEDs will be illuminated at the same time. This is known as the Home position.
    OPTION: Have the customer hold down pattlnk_8302006_1735-e120con.jpg to print a "Printer Diagnostics" menu page.
  6. Slowly press the pattlnk_8302006_1743-e120can.jpg button until the pattlnk_8302006_1750-rmvpr.jpg, pattlnk_8302006_1847-tonrlow.jpg, and pattlnk_8302006_1748-rdydta.jpg LEDs are illuminated. NOTE: Normally, this will require you to press the pattlnk_8302006_1743-e120can.jpg button 11 to 13 times, depending on the options and features installed.
  7. Press and hold pattlnk_8302006_1754-e120con.jpg until all LEDs flash or strobe from left to right, then release the button. Wait until this process stops with a pattern of three LEDs that should resemble the Step 6 pattern.
  8. Press and hold pattlnk_8302006_1844-e120can.jpg until the light pattern returns to the pattern of four LEDs in Step 5 or theHome position.
  9. Turn the printer Off.
  10. Turn the printer On.
    NOTE: If on a DHCP network, wait 30 seconds to see if the DHCP server/router sends out an IP address to the device. A settings page will automatically print if this is successful. A longer wait may be required on other networks.
  11. Press pattlnk_8302006_1814-e120con.jpg to print the settings pages and observe that all the TCP/IP settings have been reset.
  12. Reconfigure the device using DHCP, Auto IP (zero configuration) or the IP Setup Utility.

Hope this helps.

Can HP 1410 printer support LAN.

HP 1410 is not a network printer. If you want network printing, you must purchase a printer that features network printing.

You can designate a pc to act as network server and plug printer into that server, and then print from another computer on the same network
