    HP 2605

    Wondering here if anyone has had trouble using this printer? The document appears to get sent to the printer to print and the data light flashes on the printer but that is as far as it goes. The job then errors in the print queue. I'm using PCL6 drivers but have tried a universal PCL5 driver to no avail. Tried the usual things to remedy this, restart print spooler etc, but not having any joy with that either.

    Edit: It's connected to the network, not directly to a PC through USB.

    All ours are fine...

    What OS are you using? I know lots of people have had issues with the drivers for these. Are you using the latest updates downloaded from the HP site?

    Using the Windows Server 2003 drivers, downloaded a few days ago from the HP website.

    Is the printer firmware a recent version?

    To my knowledge, yes, however this is something to check I suppose. It was working! I'm sure we used different drivers though and I can't remember what we used. I'll need to tinker tomorrow and see.
