Printer problems

  1. Hey ya'll:

    We have a printer here in our office (HP Laserjet 2200 series, PCL 6) and it worked fine yesterday morning and then quit printing for no apparent reason. We are running a simple network thru Windows XP via a router. The print jobs are actually making it into the queue but then error out after about 3 - 4 minutes. I've checked what I think are the obvious things - cabling, rebooting, disconnect power from printer, re-install driver, etc.

    Any suggestions?

    My router at home sometimes blocks the network-printer (HP Laserjet 1100). A simple unplug/plug in of the router's power-cable always solves my problem.

    Thanks - I'll give a whirl after hours. Didn't unplug the router as we have 14 computers running thru it.

    GO GUINNESS!!
