First, you need to try update the latest microsoft office patch file from microsoft or you can open the MS Word, go to "HELP" menu select the update MS Word or related. Try the latest patch file first. You also can try windows update and select custom update, see their list have this problem solution or not. Second, you need to go to HP website download latest driver for LJ1020 and suitable use on Vista. Lastly, if still not solve the problem, you need this problem/issue to microsoft, ask their solutions. Kent

Hi, sorry for late answer, I have been offline for a while.

Connect RJ45 to router and parallel to computer
You need to download Software here first selecting 300x and windows version.
Then you can use the HP JetDirect Wireless Setup Wizard
to setup your printer on network.
You may also be required to install printer drivers, to do this use printer CD or download them from the Internet.

SOURCE: Jetdirect 170x External Print Server Not Visible over network

it is possiable that a firewall is in the way, but more likely is that you are on a different logical network or subnet.
the HP software relies upon doing a broadcast to find HP printers, broadcast traffice is not normally permitted between subnets, this is why the HP software does not find your printer.

basically you need to creat a new port on the computer in question and then associate a printer to that port.

do so by doing the following on XP pro.
get to the printers folder then click from the menu "File"
click "server properties"

click add port and then double click on the (Standard TCP/IP Port) a new wizard opens click next
in the top box enter the ip address of your printer. and click next. leave the device type as "Standard and as generic network card) click next then finish. then close.

now you have to link your printer to your new port.
install a new printer
making sure that you select local printer... but removing the tick "Automatically detect......" then click next and select LPT port 1.
click next choose HP on the left colum and HP lasterJet III from the right colum. click next give the printer a name of your choosing. and if nesseary choose if you want it to be a default printer or not.
click next and leave do not share selected.
click next
on the "do you want to print a test page " select "No"
then finish.

once done

right click you new printer select properties
then select the "Ports" tab
scroll down the list until you see new Standard TCP/IP port listed, select your port. then click apply

lastly click the advanced tab
using the driver part of this screen you are able to select the correct driver from the dropdown list if it is not avaliable click the new driver button and follow the prompts.

click OK when done.

hope this helps.

Printing trouble, OKI microline 320 Turbo. All of a sudden it's not printing the right side of the invoice. I have no idea how to increase the printing area so this doesn't happen. Please help!


There are 3 competing controls. 1) Software 2) Printer driver 3) Front panel. Software control overrides printer driver. Printer driver overrides front panel. Your software settings therefore dominate. That said, you can choose to have the front panel settings "dominate." Those front panel settings may enable you to change margin widths. Even though this may be possible, you may well find the solution is within the invoice software's print setup where you may have to check some box to enable 11 inch printing or whatever is required. But that requires knowledge of the invoice software program. I am unable to determine if you are encountering a sudden failure of a system previously working. If this is a printer failure rather than a software configuration problem, you will have to check the okidata help.

Here is some reference material:

How do I set up an HP JetDirect 170X Print Server with Windows 8.1 Operating System?


Connect the printer to the print server. Push the test button on the test button on the print server. Two pages will print. One of the pages will contain the IP address for the print server. Connect the print server to the router. Now you need to go to the Control Panel and select "Devices and Printers". Select "Add a Printer". When it searches for a printer, select "The printer I want isn't listed". Next, select "Add a printer using TCP/IP address or hostname" and click "Next". Now, enter the IP address from the test print and click next. That will do it.

How to change the ip address of a hp jetdirect 170X


Hi,

The manual is located here, and it recommends the following procedure, which starts on page 18.

Connect the Jetdirect box to the printer and the network and power on.
Press the Test button on the back of the Jetdirect box to print a configuration page.

The configuration page should show the IP address of the Jetdirect box.

If this is an IP address in the normal range of your network, ie the first three numbers of the Jetdirect box's IP address and your computer's IP address is the same (such as 192.168.0.) then simply type the IP address into your computers internet browser and you can reach the configuration page. The steps on page 58 detail the user interface for the web login.

If the Jetdirect box does not get an IP address withing 2 minutes of it booting up, it assigns itself an IP address of 192.0.0.192, and you can connect to it over the network if you change your own network settings to 192.0.0. and a number from 1-254 (but not 192).

I am not sure if you need the setup.exe file to configure the JetDirect 170x.If you take a look the manual for the JetDirect 170x (http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00758101/c00758101.pdf) it mentions that this is a "Test" button on the back of the print server. If you press that button when the printer is connect, then it should print out a configuration page. The configuration page will have an IP address that you can browse to with Internet Explorer to configure the JetDirect.

Oki ML 320 Turbo/D IBM - JetDirect 170x Print Server prolems


Check the receive buffer on the Oki. I usually set it to the highest (88k or 128k). You might also check the print head gap if you are printing multi part invoices. If the print head is too close it may overheat and stop printing. If you have a different printer, swap it out and see if it prints correctly. It may be a problem with the JetDirect 170x, not the printer.
