It could be an IP Address Conflict. I had the same problem (the address was conflicting with my ADSL Router) and hence the printer was acting funny and the net wasnt working.

But now the net s working fine as i've chenged the routers IP Address but the printer still isnt printing. Hopefullly I find a solution. Further, the printer does print directly to the USB Port, however the spooling can take forever on it for some weird reason.

Hp2420n printer does not print. Is connected directly onto a network. has ip address respons to ping.


please perform a power reset.

To perform a power reset you need to
1. Disconnect all the power cords connected to your printer (i.e the power cord and the USB cable.)
2. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. (this will remove the static energy if any accumulated in the printer.)
3. Connect the cables to the printer.
4. Restart the printer and try printing a page.

If it does not work please reinstall the drivers.

Printer give me erroe 57 and icannot working test for printer


The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

I want duplex printing for hp 2420


The only way to duplex print on a standard 2420 is to print the first page, then take that page and re-insert it into the paper tray face up. Then print page 2 onto the back of page 1. If you want to automatically duplex print then you need a 2420DN printer which has the duplexing paper path as well as the formatter board with the duplex firmware.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Hp 2420 vrtical line in page


Hello,

This issue can be due to fuser. I am sure you have changed the toner cartridge.
To confirm its a fuser issue, please perform the following:
1. Try printing a configuration page from tray 1, pull the top cover, as soon as the media is 60-70% inside the printer.
This would stop the paper before reaching the fusing assy.
2. Remove the paper and check if the line exist.
If exists, fuser is not faulty.
If it does not, then transfer roller, laser/scanner assy is faulty

- If fuser is faulty, perform the cleaning page as following
1. go to configure device > print quality > create/process cleaning page
perform cleaning page 5-6 times, however, if the line is due to fuser, then fuser needs to be changed.

Let me know the next update.

- Nikhil
