HP8150 receives test page but won't print
Posted on 2011-02-14
Hi, I'm having a brain fart. I have an HP8150 networked and I moved it from one location to another. Once I plugged it in, I did a cold reset so that I could get an IP address for the port it was plugged into. After I received the IP, I went onto the printer via the internet to make sure it was set to manual/ no bootp. I configured it on the server with the correct IP address and I can send a test page, but it won't print out from the printer. I noticed these things:
There's a green link light on the back of the printer but no activity.
I made sure I plugged the patch cable into a 60 port on the switch and I get a light.
Configuration report states that it has a 60 address
I updated the driver in the print server and then went back to the old driver and it still doesn't print
The only thing I can't configure is the DNS, I went onto the printer manually and I went to the printer on the internet but the HP configuration utility only has a spot for DHCP/BootP.
