HP Laserjet 1200 does not print in Windows 7

I have a HP Laserjet 1200 connected via the USB port of a laptop running Windows 7, 64-bit.  I installed the driver 64-bit windows 7 to the printer through the Windows Update process.  I added it as a local printer as described in this thread.  The driver installs and seems fine.  (The icon of the printer under "Devices and printers" is another printer, but I don't know which is relevant).  When I try to print a test page or any other page, work flashes in the queue of the printer window and disappears quickly, but the page does not print.  I get no error message.  Any suggestions?


I suggest you go through the following link.

You can also try downloading the driver from the manufacturer's website, install on your computer.

  • Why my printer does not print with Windows 8?

    Why my printer does not print with Windows 8?

    Did you just upgraded or purchased a new computer with Windows 8, and now you can't get your printer to work?  If so, this can help you.  Many people have questions about the installation of their printer on a new OS.  This will help you answer these questions and make sure you get everything installed.

    Before you start

    Before you try to install the printer on a Windows 8, you should check to make sure that the printer is compatible with the new OS.  The link below will give you a list of printers that will work in Windows 8.


    If you have upgraded your computer to Windows 8 formed another version of Windows, make sure all software uninstall complete of your printer.  It should still print, but to use all the features, you will need to reinstall the software, if available.

    Another thing to consider is how you want to connect the printer to the computer.

    1. USB.  You must ensure that you have a USB cable which does not exceed 6 feet (about 2 m).  Be sure to connect the printer directly to the computer.  Do not use a USB hub.

    2. Ethernet cable.  Make sure you have the network configuration, you have a free cable port on the router, and you have an available Ethernet cable.

    3. Wireless.  You must ensure that you have the configuration of the wireless network, and you have the password of the wireless network.

    1. installation Via USB

    Installation via USB in Windows 8 became much simpler for users of HP printer.  In other versions of the Windows operating system, you need to launch the installation and wait that it asks for the USB connection.  If you do not, you will need to uninstall the printer from the devices and printers folder and then launch the installation.  In Windows 8, which won't be a problem.  If you plug the USB cable from the printer and then install the printer software, work remains.  Now for in depth instructions on installing the printer via the USB port click on the link below.


    2 installation Via an Ethernet network connection

    For an Ethernet connected printer, the installation is disconcerting.  All you have to do is to connect the printer to the network.  Once you have done so, Windows 8 will automatically install the drivers for you.  Then, all you have to do is install the rest of the software, if available.  It's really as simple as that.


    3 installation Via a wireless network connection.

    For a wireless printer, network installation is disconcerting.  All you have to do is to connect the printer to the network.  Once you have done so, Windows 8 will automatically install the drivers for you.  Then, all you have to do is install the rest of the software, if available.  It is roughly the same as just Wireless Ethernet installation.


    Alternative installation methods

    With Windows 8, the drivers of many printers are installed with the operating system.  These are called pilots InOS, since they come built-in to the operating system.  If you have one of these printers, you should have to do simply connect it to the computer via USB, or connect to the network via Ethernet or wireless.  Once you have that makes Windows will take care of the rest.  There are other methods of installation of your printer if normal methods don't work for some reason any.  You can install the printer is using the printer, or through Windows Updates Setup Wizard.

    Set printer wizard:


    Windows Update:


    Note: The drivers of Laserjet for the Asia-Pacific and the Japan will come only at a later date.  See below the link support site for the availability of the driver.  I will update this post once they become available.


    Hope that answers some questions.

  • HP LaserJet 6 p printer range does not print with windows 7

    I installed the drivers that came with Windows 7, but the printer does not print. I run the diagnostic tool; It removes the work and says it's fixed.  It is not the case. HP says they cannot help.   I love my 6 p and would rather not have to buy a new printer.  Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Windows 7 does NOT support printer HP laserjet 6 p.  It is a HP note:models 6L and 6 p in the LaserJet 6 series are NOT supported in Windows 7  I got and downloaded the driver on the Internet somewhere by typing: driver of HP laserjet 6 p.  You can check the box to add printers over the Internet.  I'm not looking for the process.  Try and I hope it helps.  In the meantime, I'm troubleshooting why my 6 p prints (parallel to 6 p and USB for laptop HP cable).  Don't forget the impression of 'biodirectional' is not checked in Ports (USB001, 2 or 3) place (lower-left) in Device Manager. Right-click on your printer, you will see 'printer properties '.  I say that linear, but you will get it.  Let us know.

  • HP Laserjet CM1415fnw does not print wireless

    Original title: HP Laserjet CM1415fnw

    My printer has stopped printing wirelessly from my PC (but prints OK when connected with a CAT5 cable). My PC is connected to the router (BTHomeHub) wireless, I can browse and enter in the config. My printer says it is connected to the router with the identifier SSID is correct and past Network Test Wireless HP on all points. I got the impression of having a fixed IP address in case it was a DHCP problem and a static IP address reservation in the router. However, in the router settings advanced, the router says the printer is not connected and I cannot ping the router from my PC. It was working fine until recently. Any ideas? THX.

  • HP LaserJet p1006 is not printing with windows 8

    I have a HP Laserjet P1006 and recently installed Windows 8 on my computer. I downloaded the drivers for windows 7 and down them in a mode of compatibility with the installed printer. The problem is that, although it is said that it is printing something, nothing happens. The computer says that it has communicated information about ot the printer, but the printer is not printing. I ran the torubleshooter and it says that the printer must be connected to a USB 2.0 port. Not only my USB 3.0 is backward compatible (I checked), I have even a hub USB2.0 connected to the printer. There is no error message, depending on the computer, all right: but the printer is not printing. Help please?

    You should probably wait until the official drivers are released. The driver page I found for LaserJet compatibility with Windows 8 said that he should be released "Spring 2013", so it should be available soon.
