Question about HP LASERJET P1006 Printer

1 Answer

Hp laserjet p1006 has stopped printing. When I connect usb-cable til pc, I get the msg: usb device not rekogniced

Have tried to download new drivers, uninnstall and install the printer. Tried on different pc's with win7 and vista. All have been working. Tried different usb-cable. Can it be some firmware to be downloaded and in case how? Is the usb-connection in the printer damaged? Is the only way to solve this problem to buy a new printer?

This may help. Before you disconnected the USB cable did you "disconnect" it using the icon in the system tray? If you did not, try cycling power to the computer with no USB cable for the printer connected. Sometimes when you unplug a USB cable while it is still "connected" to the device your computer will lose track of that USB port. I hope this helps you.

Hi, I would suggest you update your printer drivers with fresh drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

If you are getting correct test page without errors, simply unplug your printer's USB Connection from PC. uninstall Printer drivers and software. restart PC.. Re-Install New Copy of Drivers and Software.. THEN PLUG THE PRINTER USB CABLE TO PC.. try printing after proper driver is installed..

My hp laserjet p1006 will not print


Check the usb port, when connected to your pc, does your device manager revognize the device?. If it doesn't then check the cable and the port on the computer as well as on the printer. If you do see a connection, go to your printers and hardware folder and look for the driver right click on the driver and look for the properties, Once you have the properties window open look for the ports tab and check to see what port is selected.

I would recommend that you perform a power cycle by unplugging the printer for 60 seconds then restarting your computer, logging back in....then plug your printer back into your computer, If that does not work I would also try going to www.hp.com clicking Software & Driver Downloads on your right corner of your browser of the HP website then typing in the product which is "Laserjet 1200" then choose your current operating system then download the full driver device.
