IP Address conflict on HP Laserjet 5000 n

stkoontz asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
We had a power outage and now our HP Laserjet 5000 n won't print.  The printer is connected to a Windows 2003 server through a hub.  (There is no separate print server)

The status on the printer says 'ready' and I can print a test page from the printer.  The printer icon on the network says 'offline.'

The IP address on the printer is now different than the IP address on the network.

I tried restarting the printer and the server.  I also tried re-setting the printer to the factory default, then turning the printer off and on again.  (The IP address on the printer stayed the same.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
