    Try a test page (push and release the Button on the front panel)
    If it prints then it’s probably a communication problem.

    Check your bios setting, try ecp-epp or bidirectional. Or any other combination you have available.

    Could also be your printer cable check for damaged pins? You might need to test with another cable if you have one.

    - first go to and download the latest driver for the HP LJ 1100A
    From this page:

    download both files, the PCL 5e driver and the communication update.
    Install the driver first then the update.
    Make sure u delete all other HP LJ 1100a printers from CONTROL PANEL >> PRINTERS

    - if still it didn't print, try to change the LPT port configuration from the Device manager. Sometime u need to change it from ECP to Printer port or visa-versa.
