Dear friend this could be because of not installing the printer properly or data cable not connected.
for this you have to uninstall and then reinstall the printer now click on the printer properties and click on ports, here you will see a long list of ports installed scroll up or down and make sure the (tick) mark is in on the "LPT:" (measns LPT: is selected) if this configuration is correct then check the data cable remove it and connect it again to both CPU and the PRINTER. only these two problem can do this other than a printer motherboard problem. if your problem did not get solved by this then you need a technician who can repair your printer.
Thankyou

You need to reboot your computer to reset all print in queue window. After that try printing again and that probably will solve your problem.

49 server error


49.xx.xy error- General firmware error ( like a blue screen in windows)
a corrupt print file is usually the cause and can be cleared by disconnecting the printer from the network, then cycle the power , allow the machine to come to ready and ask the pritner for a configuration page( just a test to see if the printer is able to respond- if not then replace formatter/firmware chip) when this has finished printing goto the workstation that sent the last files to the printer and clear ALL print queues form the PC then and only after clearing the print queues can you re-connect the network - failing to clear the print queue will cause the printer to re-try printing the corrupt document which will result in 49.xx.xy error being displayed again.

Printer says "ready" but won't print


try checking cable if you have another cable try that after rebooting computer! if that doesnt work go to hp's website look up the units driver for the correct operating system reinstall the drivers from hp's website then reboot and try your printer again it should work! 99.9 percent of time error printing to queue is a communication problem from the driver being corrupt or a error in your system registry.
good luck!

I bought a Laseret 6L and a usb adaptor cord to replace the parellel port connection on the computer end. I've tried every suggestion regarding ports, but nothing works. The test page prints OK, but...


I've heard there is special software needed to do the USB to parallel conversion. We have a customer using a LJ 1000 with this hook up and there is supposed to be a driver/conversion software that handles the issue. Here is a good discussion that may have some solutions for you.

Problem with printing on HP 6L


Make sure the parallel port is enabled in 'setup' (bios) (make sure to exit and save even if no changes were made). If you are running 'Vista', you may need to update the driver from HP.

LaserJet 6L Prints Outlook content too light


You can run into these problems when using non OEM toner cartridges. It sounds like anything that is printed in a light gray is not printing correctly.
