Since you can print the TEST page, that indicates there is communication between computer and printer.

Each program/software on your computer such as Micro Soft Office and others need to be TOLD to use the specific printer.

Two things to look at:

1. Left click Windows START button
2. Left click Control Panel
3. Look for PRINTERS and select
4. Find your printer and make sure it has a GREEN check mark next to it (Default)
5. Then use one of your programs and try to PRINT
6. May have to tell your program to select AND print to specific printer

Hello, my problem is that my laserjet printer p1005 doesnt print anything.. whenever i command it from my pc it doesnt do anything.. i tried changing cartridge but still same prob.... please helllppp...


First, print an Engine Test Page.

To print an Engine Test Page, open and close the cartridge door five times while the printer is in ready mode. The printer should print one page with multiple horizontal lines.

If the engine test page printed, is a comunication problem (PC configuration,PC/Printer conection/Driver bad installed)

I cannot print a document from my Asus eee pc 900 series using HP Laserjet 4L - it prints test page only. I also have Canon BJC-100 and it won't even print a test page from that.


Hi Sir/mam '' i hope i can help you with my idea ' as you said your HP prints the print test but not working to print any document '', so here we start on start menu then click my computer , as it opens you can be able to see your HP device icon , click HP then click print settings , set it to print using HP as default printer , because another instance it is set to print to image or print to file or print to email. . thank you

If you are getting correct test page without errors, simply unplug your printer's USB Connection from PC. uninstall Printer drivers and software. restart PC.. Re-Install New Copy of Drivers and Software.. THEN PLUG THE PRINTER USB CABLE TO PC.. try printing after proper driver is installed..

HP LaserJet 1320 problem


For this you first uninstall any previous Driver. Install the Drivers after restarting your system. After Installing the drivers connect the Printer. Note down now the Driver must be automatically work because HP1320 is a plug n play Printer. If not change the cable used to connect the PC with Printer and if the Printer is auto detected, you will be able to print the Test Page or any other page.

HP Color LaserJet 2550n printer - Paper feeding fine. No print!


Have you checked that you are sending the print job using the correct paper tray on the printer? Check the properties of the printer to ensure you are. Check also that the printer is OK by running a test print from the printer and not through the PC. If I remember it's hold the green button for around 7-10 seconds, whilst powering on.
