HP Printer wont print-used to until yesterday
Posted on 2006-05-19
I have an old Hewlett Packard LazerJet4 which print(ed) beautifully.
Yesterday I booted the computer and it wont print.
I have jiggled the cords, reinstalled the printer driver and nothing happens. All I get is an error message in a bubble that says "this document failed to print" and says something about troubleshooting.
Thing is, it was a present to me and my daughter (both art students) and when it arrived it had a sticker on it which is long lost which said something about pressing shift and continue together. We have had it about 4 months and never needed to do this. SO I have tried switching the printer off and holding down shift and continue, all sorts of things.
I use this old toner for my artwork and it is almost essential for me, so I need to know if there is some trick which those 'in the know' use with these wonderful old printers?
This problem is such a 'biggie' for me and I have many points unused so -
