    Anyone had any problems with Hp 1320 Printers recently?

    I only ask because I remember the stupid driver update a few months back that caused all 1300's to print everything on one page

    A few computers connected to 1320's, only that printer, have started saying, after months/years of working fine, that driver files are missing.
    Its a mixture of network printers added with scripts, 'local' network printers and USB ones. Reinstalling the driver from the original network location works fine.

    So not a massive problem, but annoying, and we have about 30 1320's so I hope it doesnt start happening more

    Anyone else noticed anything?

    Cant say we've had that problem here (yet) but we have an issue with using the PCL 6 drivers so as long as we use the PCL 5e ones we are ok so far.

    Nope - got serveral of these and they've never played up. Mind you - I've never updated the drivers - if it aint broke don't try and fix it!

    Thats the thing, we havent! The 1300 problems were an update that came with Windows update and we havent updated the 1320 ones at all either

    Looks like its just a few coincidences then, thanks guys

    Hmmm

    Different issues I suspect, but some of our users lost connection to printers. And not just the clueless numpties either!

    We've been having all sorts of strange printing issues recently, connections being lost, pages coming out strange (had a 2420 that would only print anything that was in bold, everything else didn't print!)

    HP 1320 printers only work on the PCL5e driver for us as well, we've only got 3 of them thou, and they are generally very reliable, unlike their older 1300 counterparts which are getting on a bit now!

    I've got a collection of 1100, 1200, 1300 and 1320 which all work reliably here.
