My printer HP LASER JET 5200 DTN shows "Ready" on the display but it doesn't print, how can I fix this?


First thing you need to do is establish whether the print engine itself is at fault, or not.
From the relevant printer front panel menu, invoke printing of one or more of the available reports (configuration, font list, etc.); do these print?
If the reports print OK, try to send some plain text to the device.
On a Windows system, you could do this by using the DOS copy command in conjunction with an appropruate net use command to redirect LPT1: to the (USB) port associated with the relevant Windows printer instance.

I have a retail store with 7 x Win 7 Workstations. i have 1 x Epson Tm-T88iii thermal receipt printer connected and installed on lpt1 port on my 1 workstation. We use a Dos application for our sales. The...


Hi, details below for creating a ersistent connection from LPT1: to you \\computer\\printername printer. Do the following on the other workstation that is not printing.

Use the net.exe command to establish a persistent connection.

To do this, use the following syntax at a command prompt:

net use lpt1 \\printserver\sharename /persistent:yes

where printserver is the print server that is sharing the printer, and where sharename is the name of the printer share.

For example, to map LPT1 to a printer shared as Laser1 on a print server that is named Pserver, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. Type net use lpt1 \\pserver\laser1 /persistent:yes, and then press ENTER.
4. To quit the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.

Note In Windows XP, non-administrative users cannot map an LPT port to a network printer path when the LPT port exists on the computer as a physical parallel port.

How to change the density of the printer HP LaserJet 5p


I'm afraid this won't be of much help to the original poster, who asked the question a year ago, but anyway - others may be looking for this too, just like I did...

To change the print density, a simple command must be sent to the printer. This is done in two steps:
  1. Create a file, containing the command
  2. Send it to the printer ("copy" it to the printer, in a DOS shell)
The command is:
<ESC>%-12345X@PJL DEFAULT DENSITY=4
where <ESC> represents the "Escape" character (character code 27). There are several ways to generate the Escape character (which cannot be directly entered in a text editor): E.g. substitute the character with any other, save the command and then replace the first character with 0x1b using a hex editor.

Or:
  • Open a DOS window
  • Enter:
    copy con density.txt <Enter>
  • Hold the <Alt> key
  • type 27 on the numeric keypad
  • Release the <Alt> key - the Esc. char. is shown as ^[
  • Type the rest of the command (e.g. %-12345X@PJL DEFAULT DENSITY=4) - adjust the density value to the one you actually want to set.
  • press <Enter> <ctrl-Z> <Enter> to write the file
When you have successfully created the command file, send it to the printer. In the DOS window, enter:
copy density.txt LPT1
(assuming that your printer is connected to LPT1)

That's it!
To verify that the density has actually been set, print a printer status page.
The printer remembers this setting, so this needs to be done only once.

Need help installing the firmware for an HP LJ p3005n. I have the download, and the printer is locally connected *USB*


David,

As per the instructions from HP for windows systems:

If the device is shared on the network, then the following command can be issued from a command prompt: copy /b FILENAME \\SHARENAME\PRINTERNAME
where FILENAME is the name of the .RFU file,SHARENAME is the name of the machine, from which the printer is being shared, and PRINTERNAME is the printer's share name.
If the device is attached locally, then the .RFU file can be sent directly to the printer with a COPY command from a command prompt or DOS window:
copy /b FILENAME PORTNAME
where FILENAME is the name of the .RFU file and PORTNAME is the name of the appropriate device port (such as LPT1).
The following can be set on the computer to help address a timeout message that may occur during an update:
From a command prompt or DOS window type the following command and press the enter key:
Mode lpt1:,,p
If the device is attached to a parallel port other than LPT1, then substitute the proper LPT port number in the MODE command. Once this command has been set the file can then be copied to the printer with the above mentioned COPY command.
NOTE: When the upgrade process has completed the LaserJet will reboot. Once the printer is back online, print a Configuration Page and verify that the new firmware has been installed.

Dos Program in FoxPro


To answer the question, I need to k**w if your DOS session is running inside Windows. As this is the most likely scenario, I'll answer assuming that - the answer will be different for DOS only systems.

Has the faulty LPT1 port has actually been removed? If it has, why **t just alter the port number of LPT3 back to LPT1 ? This can be done with jumpers on an old style card, or from device manager inside Windows if plug and play. If **t, you can try the following:

1: If the printer is already installed in Windows on LPT3, skip to step 3:
2: Install the printer in Windows. If you don't have a suitable driver for it, you can use Generic/Text only driver.
3: Right click on the printer, go to sharing, and make the printer shareable. Use a share name of 11 or less characters and ** spaces - e.g. EPSONLX500
4: From the CMD prompt, type the command:

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\Sharename

e.g.

net use lpt1: \\%computername%\EPSONLX500

**te that you do **t need to replace %computername% with your exact computer name - the machine will do it for you.

Finally, for others reading this, you can also use this technique to print from DOS to most "intelligent" USB printers (Hi end Laser, Dot Matrix etc). It probably won't work with "dumb" GDI printers or All-in-ones where Windows has to do all the work. If the printer supports PCL or ESCP printing languages, you are probably going to be OK.
