par io err laserjet 4 plus
Posted on 2002-05-15
Every time I start my computer my old laserjet 4 plus comes up with an error message on the control panel
"err par io"
the work around is to cycle power on the printer after the computer is loaded. This problem started when I got a new computer. I have tried changing the printer port to different types to no avail. Also, have tried changing the printer cable - it is an ieee1284 cable to no avail.
Once upon a time, I found a HP problem report that was similar to this and involved renaming or replacing a hp printer driver file that is loaded in Windows9x. I cannot find that problem report.
Has anyone else seen this and can tell me the file name?
