HP Printer acting up
Posted on 2004-04-02
I have an HP Laser 5L hooked up to my Dell Latitude D600 Notebook running on Windows XP Professional.
All of a sudden the printer refuses to print certain papers, It prints fine from Word applications but it selectively refuses to print certain pages from Abobe applications. It would print the first 2 pages and it wont print the rest. The other day I received a 2 page fax and the printer would not print the 2nd page from that fax reader application.
I've had this printer for over 6 years and I am wondering if it's time to trash it or what. When it prints it is a delightful machine. Of course I have re-set it many times and I have cleared all the pending printing jobs on the computer, but it has not helped at all. I don't think I have the original installation CD but should I try to re-install it in another way?
