Hi, I've got a hp 1280 printer but i cannot print ANYTHING on it. Everytime i try and print (no matter what the paper size is) I cannot print. All that happens is the document goes into the spooler, saying it's printing and it's size is xxx/yyy and then after about a minute it says printing error and i have to delete it.
I've had this problem for ages and i only just got around to having another shot at fixing it. I say again as last time i tried I was able to get it to print some text from notepad just the once
using (if i remeber correctly) the parallel port connection and queue up a load of documents then print it. Then deleted the top one and it printed the next document in the queue I wasn't able to do it again.
I have tried different connections
, parallel, usb and a parallel to usb adapter connection test. I've tried the command prompt stuff for postscript and non-postscript
copy con USB001
and ECHO blahblah dir > USB001
I've tried from wordpad, notepad, ms word and powerpoint
- no luck
nothing works. I'm stumped. It doesn't work on other computers
Any ideas on what to do.
Thanks very much for your time
p.s it's out of warrenty
