HP Networked Printers not functioning all of a sudden
Posted on 2008-02-11
We have a large network of computers and printers in our facility, which all have static IP's. Everything was working fine until one morning, we had reports of over 15-20 HP Laserjet Printers which were acting up. The printers are non-responsive, and seem to be off-line when we try to configure them over the network. But we found that when they are powered on / off they comeback online for about 10 minutes, complete the print jobs , and then go offline.
After verifying the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway, all the settings seemed fine. We were suspecting it might be a hack on all of the printers through the network, but more insight would be greatly appreciated...
