HP 3100 'check' printing problem - need ideas
Posted on 2005-03-01
We have two XP Home computers hooked to an HP 3100 (one is sharing it to the other)........occasionally they are used to print checks and work fine.
In a separate office two PCs are hooked to a different HP 3100..........the HP 3100 is hooked directly via parallel to a Windows 2000 Pro PC and shared to an XP Home PC. The 2000 PC prints these checks fine, but the XPHome PC will NOT print the MICR (bank code) on the check.
What I have tried:
1) All 'HP 3100' drivers available on "driverguide". Of course, I have no trouble printing from XPHome, except that bank code on those checks.
2) Took the "DLL" files off the working XPHome PCs in other office and tried those.
3) Yes, I did try eliminating the Windows 2000 Pro pc since that seemed to be the most likely variable. I hooked the HP3100 directly to the XPHome PC, reloaded my 'best' driver......still no luck.
4) No, this XPHome PC has never been able to print checks properly and I am the third to repeat these steps.
