Question about HP LaserJet 3055 All-In-One Printer
Have new computer with new HP LJ 3055 printer. New computer runs old accounting software (1988 vintage) fine. But when try to print out reports, the new printer won't print them. Program ran fine on old printer (HP LaserJet 4 Plus). Can't use old printer any more because connectors to printer are different on old and new computers. Any idea how to get the HP LJ 3055 printer to print out these reports. The accounting program has been discontinued so no update drivers available there.
The issue your having is with the Operating system compatability. The HP 3055 is compatible with 98, ME, XP, Window 2000 and forward. It won't do windows 3.1 or 95 well even if your computer will, the disconnect comes when the software is sending old print commands to a new style print driver.
Your best hope is to download and install the HP Printdriver for Windows 98 and try it as it's the most tolerant of old gear. Download the PCL 5 as the PCL6 is too new and probably not going to work.
As an alternate try to download each of the printdrivers for the differnt era windows and try them. It's a hard problem that may not have a solution other than upgrading the accounting software.
If it's simply a connection problem, they do make a USB to Parallel addaptor which may help you with the physical connection issue.

Hope that helps you.
