Question about HP LASERJET P1006 Printer
Have tried to download new drivers, uninnstall and install the printer. Tried on different pc's with win7 and vista. All have been working. Tried different usb-cable. Can it be some firmware to be downloaded and in case how? Is the usb-connection in the printer damaged? Is the only way to solve this problem to buy a new printer?

This may help. Before you disconnected the USB cable did you "disconnect" it using the icon in the system tray? If you did not, try cycling power to the computer with no USB cable for the printer connected. Sometimes when you unplug a USB cable while it is still "connected" to the device your computer will lose track of that USB port. I hope this helps you.

Hi, I would suggest you update your printer drivers with fresh drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

Use any printer parallel 25pin convertor to USB cable and connect it to pc or notebook
Connect both ends from pc to 6L printer
Go to website to choose the correct O/S driver for installation
Use virtual USB port005 for printer 6L
Bi-directional option can be ticked
Click apply and ok
Unplug and replug the USB cable
Try printing a test page,
I have tried it, the vista download drivers works on vista, no problems in printing at all, advise from http://www.bebo.com/andythoo
