Question about HP LaserJet P1505n Printer

1 Answer

I have of got problem with HP laserjet P1505n printer, which is when someone did not print for a about 10 minutes, and then try to print something, always it doesnt print until user manually push the power button of the printer. next is if someone send a print job to the printer when there are no paper on the tray, the status of the printer says "out of paper" on the PC and even after adding papers to the tray, neither Printer nor PC will detect it. the print Job will hang and nobody else in the network also will not be able to print. the only way of bring the device working is restart the print spooler service in the PC and delete the print job. I am fed-up with this issue and hope some would help me to come out of this pain. thanks in advance.

This happens when the printer is printing duplex job. i.e. trying to print the other side of the page.
However check the functionality of the printer by performing Paper path test.
This would help us to know whether the printer as a stand alone ... is fine or not.

From the control panel of the printer, scroll to Diagnostic > paper path test.
Select the following in sequence.
Source: All trays
Copies: 10
Duplex: ON
Print Test Page

Check if you get the same error.
If yes, upgrade teh firmware of the printer.

Let me know the end result. We still have more depending on the above test.

SOURCE: Cannot print on shared printer

I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

SOURCE: hp 2420 prints a ''job storage status page'' after each print job

If you have your software driver or print job set to save your print jobs to the printer and your printer does not support this, you will get that error and status page. Here is what the User's manual says about print job storage:
"The printer supports two distinct job-storage features that you can use to initiate printing from the printer control panel after the print job is sent from the computer:
● Proof and hold jobs
● Private jobs
Make sure that you identify your jobs in the printer driver before printing. Using default names might override previous jobs that have the same default name or cause the job to be deleted.

The job-storage features require 48 MB of RAM. For printer models that have less than 48 MB of RAM, you can add memory so that they can support the features."

Will not print periodically. Cannot clear print

Try downloading the latest driver from HP:
Often times the drivers on the CD are already out of date.
Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!
