HP LaserJet 5 "Printer Busy or Error"
Posted on 2000-05-10
We have a Win95 user printing to a LaserJet 5 across our network. He can print lots of things with no problem. There is one Excel file, though, that will begin spooling into the queue and then say "Printer Error or Busy." The display on the printer says "Processing Job..." and then "Ready" over and over. He can print other Excel files as well as other applications fine. We can send the same print job to a LaserJet 4 and it prints fine. There's nothing special about this file. I changed the spool settings to print directly to the printer and nothing changed.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
