HP Laserjet 1200 print settings

I have acquired the LJ 1200 and force them to change the print density of 3 to 5 settings and the height of 10-12. I was delivered with a CD1 [N° C7044-60132 ver. 6] and tried to download it to my computer Dell Optiplex GX280 using XP. When I look in start-> Control Panel-> I see HP Laserjet 1200... Under Tools, I see 'Uninstaller', but there is no indicator giving any MB of software installed!

More I can't find any Configuration of device on the CD utility.

I have the correct CD that comes with the printer or is it a CD2?

BTW: I can't use this printer, if I do not change the print settings because I intend to use this computer/printer using BACK 6.2 and Wordstar and Foxbase [for back]. The LJ1200 is a replacement of a HP Laser lllp that worked wonderfully [it has now made the soul] and automatically prints the reports created in Foxbase [with the supplied generator] in point 17. The LJ1200 is printing in 10 points and while in WS, you can set the printing code withiin a document I do not know if you can in Foxbase.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

P.S. This thread has been moved to the Web Site of Business Support for LaserJet. Forum Moderator - HP


Cannot send the prn files to the printer via copy/b controls using start-> all programs-> Accessories-> command... Get the message "Windows cannot find" copy/b "make sure you typed the name correctly." "

Using start-> cmd... Message "System can not fine the specified file.

SOLUTION: A 'programme' within Foxbase + sending code using compressed to the printer.

?? CHR (27) + '& k2S '.

Now I'm looking for a code to change the print density [and have posted it on a new site, I signed up with today.]

Thank you for your support of my problem.

  • Windows 7 think no driver USB there is for the HP LaserJet 1200 printer

    When I plug my HP LaserJet 1200 printer in my Windows 7 laptop via a USB cable, the correct driver should install automatically, but it does not work.  The message error is "HP LaserJet 1200 printer doesn't have a driver', which is not true.

    This driver used to work properly on Windows 7.  It is suspected that HP could inadvertently, recently broken the driver.  Do you have someone at HP, or at Microsoft, typo or mistranscribe the string 'HP LaserJet 1200' in a version of the driver, or in a catalog that refers to a newer version of the driver?

    To be clear: I is not a smart solution that puts my system in a strange state, I do not understand, or want to try different things that might work, but (as far as I know) could corrupt vaguely a few hidden files or reference system.  My system is now in a clean and orderly condition.  I wish him stay that way.

    I'm looking for the standard driver auto installation correctly according to the standard method, as it should.

    Since the first meeting of the problem, I erased from my hard drive and reinstalled fresh (not just recovered, rescued or updated, but wiped and freshly reinstalled) my operating system to Windows 7.  It made no difference.  Therefore, the problem seems not to be a problem with my installation.  It seems rather to be a problem with the driver, a catalog that refers to the driver or something of the sort.

    We realize that the HP LaserJet 1200 is a pretty old printer, for which we could expect little support.  Despite this, would be the person at Microsoft, who knows printer drivers, check that the "HP LaserJet 1200" string not inadvertently has been misspelled or mistranscribed in a recent version of the driver, or in a catalog that made reference to a recent version of the driver?  As I said, this driver used to work.

    If the driver is listed, then you don't have to go through the company if in the update catalog. That's the good news.  The bad news is that I do not understand why it has not installed.

    Go to devices and printers.  If there is anything listed in the category 'printers and faxes', select it.  Once you select an item in this category, you will see a 'Print server properties' button at the top of the printers and devices window.  Click on this button.

    If there is nothing in the category 'Printers and faxes', you will not be able to get the print server properties button, so instead, open a command prompt window (click on the start ORB, type cmd.exe and press enter), type the following in the black command prompt window and press ENTER:


    Whatever it is, you will end up the "Print server properties" window, like this:

    I guess that you will NOT see a list for the Laserjet 1200.  Before you add it, however, click the "Ports" tab  You have a Port which is presented as "DOT4_001" (the number may be different at the end)?

    Unplug the printer if it is connected.

    Back to the tab drivers, click "Add" and you can start the Add Printer Driver Wizard, which is very similar to add an assistant of the printer that you saw earlier.

    Click on 'Next' and check the box next to your system - x 64 for 64-bit and x 86 for 32-bit.

    Click "Next", select "HP" and "Laserjet 1200 Series PCL 5" and click "Next"

    Click 'Finish' to close the wizard

    You must return to the Ports of the print server properties tab and now the driver for the "Laserjet 1200 Series PCL 5" should be included in the list

    Close the print server properties window

    Restart the computer

    Connect the printer.

    It installs correctly now?

  • LaserJet 1200: Laserjet 1200 printer drivers / Windows 10


    My HP Laserjet 1200 worked properly without any problem when I downloaded and installed Windows 10 (64 bit) in early November 2015.  I upgraded to Windows 7.  16 December 2015, there was an important 10 Windows update that is automatically installed on my system.  The Setup takes about half an hour or more.  After installation and restarting, the printer would not print.  The printer prints a test page if I hit the button on the printer.  However, there seems to be no communication between the computer and the printer.  The Laserjet Printer is a former model of 2002 and is connected via a parallel port.  I tried in vain to install new drivers on the HP site and have exhausted all other troubleshooting provided tools.  I've not seen this issue addressed on the Forum.  It was suggested that we put security update 12/16 may have eliminated the ability to connect via a parallel port.  Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.  Look forward to having to buy a new printer when this one works perfectly well!


    With a parallel port, it is a known problem with the latest update of windows 10.  Go to Device Manager and in the tab change the Port settings to "never use an interrupt" to one of the other options.

  • Pavilion a1400n: Windows XP driver for a LaserJet 1200 printer attached to a Windows 7 computer

    Where can I find the driver Windows XP on a 32-bit PC wants to be able to add a printer connected to a PC running Windows 7 64 bit which are on my home network?

    I worked through the process of adding a printer to my Windows XP machine that I can get to the point in the Add Printer Wizard after the navigation of the printer and choose what I click Next and the response that I actually want add the printer that is on the Windows 7 PC. I am then presented with a dialog box indicating that the INF file is necessary. I downloaded the drivers that are on http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=58928 & swLangOid = 8 & swEnvOid = 4063 and tried each of them pointing to the directory where they are each. When I do that I said that "Windows cannot locate a suitable driver. Contact your administrator for help to locate and install a correct driver.

    Where can I find the suitable driver for PC Windows XP print to a printer connected to a Windows 7 PC on my network?

    I found a solution to this problem, but this isn't the ability to print a document from my XP computer to a shared printer connected to my Windows 7 computer. The solution I implemented was to connect my XP computer to the printer via a parallel cable. I went with this approach for two reasons.

    First of all, I realized that none of the drivers for this printer are available for Windows 7 64-bit allow me to print a document double sided or in a brochure (print booklet of course depends on the ability to print double-sided) from my Windows 7 computer. The dirver for this printer on my XP (32 bit) provides these capabilities. The 64-bit Windows 7 driver that Microsoft provides through Windows Update appears to support these capabilities, but when these options are selected, that the document prints single sided. Windows 7 64-bit universal printer driver for this printer that is available on the HP site is not yet expected to provide these features. It's as if HP abandoned for most of this printer. I understand that this is an old printer, but what I find amazing, it is that he was not so old a printer when Windows 7 64-bit was new, so why can't HP provide the latest version of the driver that could perform these functions? (Of course I can just be assuming that at some point it might). Surely it cannot take up that much space on their server. The other question is why the universal printer driver for Windows 7 64 bit cannot provide these capabilities? XP driver 32 bit I have, which is also a universal printer driver that I downloaded several years ago on the HP site, provides the capability. I have tried downloading a version of XP 32 - most recent bit of the driver to see if it was stripped of these capabilities.

    Second, I chose to use the parallel connection because my XP computer has a parallel port, I already had a parallel cable which was not used, and doing so allows me to have the printer connected permanently on both computers. Tempting to connect two computers using a cable USB would require to manually switch the USB of a computer connection to the other whenever I tried to print from the computer that was not connected.

  • My HP Laserjet 1200 printer will not print several copies.

    Printer was fine for several months after installing Windows 7/64, but now will not print multiple copies.
    Install the latest drivers from HP does not work.

    Sorry, none of these methods worked, but I found a "work around" which, although unsatisfactory, works.
    The only way I can change the "exemplary amount printed ' is to go of the program print menu and instead to use the box of"Copies", use" Properties/Advanced/paper output/copy Count"and change cela number of copies wanted, then run the print job, but don't forget to come back to this menu and change it to '1', which will continue to use the new set of amount." This seems to be a problem with the printer driver.

  • 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?

  • HP laserjet 1200 using windows7, wired to the printer with a USB to parallel adapter

    HP laserjet 1200 using windows7. My computer has USB ports, but no parallel port, if the computer is connected to the printer with a USB to parallel adapter. Sometimes works very well, sometimes States printer system as ready, but do not print. Reboot hardware and upon restarting, I got a page to print. Next attempt to print updates the document in cue, but is right there - no error message. Finally, after several reboots, I managed to do print (have no idea how), but now I had to print 20 pages one page at a time. It will print no more than one page, even if I have to print the 20. Next time I start the computer I don't know if the printer will print. Do you need to use the same USB port each time, or are USB to parallel unreliable maps?

    Hey renradd!

    Unfortunately, in addition to the adapters USB can be unreliable. Only a new printer, I don't know what it will provide you with a fix for this problem. You can try a different card if you have one, but if it still does not work, I would look for in a printer capable of supporting your computer.

    I hope this helps!

  • Windows 7, LaserJet 1200 and collating copies

    I recently upgraded to an office with new machines that came with Windows 7. Two Secretaries use still old HP LaserJet 1200 s, and while I got them to print and scan, there is a problem with multiple copies. If I disable the snack, they can print several copies. Otherwise, it will only make a copy. Anyone else run into this? Any ideas on how to get the old printer at the same time make several copies and collect? Thank you! Seth

    For someone who comes across a similar problem, I found a solution in this thread: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Printers-LaserJet/LaserJet-1200-and-Multiple-Copies/m-p/1161674/highlight/true#M189760

    The tread is long enough, but at the end of the day, I followed these simple instructions and now several copies with Assembly work.

    "The problem is caused by the default Mopier enabled Mode.  The idea of the Mopier Mode is to minimize the computer and network traffic by sending only 1 copy on an appropriate equipped with an internal memory printer.  That the stored copy is then used to produce multiple copies.  LaserJet most have no appropriate internal memory and therefore a copy sent by the computer is printed.  To turn off Mopier Mode:

    1. click on start

    2. click on devices and printers

    3. right click on your LaserJet printer

    4. Select printer properties

    5. click on the device settings tab

    6. scroll the page up to the botom

    7. click on Mopier Mode

    The link I gave above seems a bit flakey - it worked fine last night but this morning when I tried it it says that nothing is available.  Earlier it is back to work, but I don't know if you can find what you need.  There are UPD for PCL 5 and 6 and PS drivers.  There is also an that Resource Kit directors might have what you need, the link is here.  May not have what you need - I doubt that there is much support for a product that was introduced in Windows 3.1 calendar...

    Operating system: Windows 8 Home Edition, 64-bit

    Error message: cannot find the series 1200 on the network. To locate manually click ok...

    Changes Made - this is an installation on the new laptop, in Windows 8, 64-bit


    1 installation of an existing network, consistedof a desk and two wireless laptops.

    2. the two portable computers have Windows 7, 64 bit. Above the named printer is accessed successfully for laptops.

    3 replaces one of cell phones with 8 64-bit Windows.

    4. the path of the 1200 series is: wireless printer to the router, router to the desktop via ethernet, from desktop to a printer via a cable.

    5. the configuration of the wireless printer is

    c. process is unable to locate a driver and ordered to locate manually.

    d. accessing the HP Universal Driver files fails because a driver is not found.

    e. caraa attempt enter fails because you can't enter address above (\\central\HPlaserj). Cannot enter HPLaserj for the address, which obviously does not work.

    f. when the installation showed a list of drivers, the only one that I found was a universal PCL 6, which is what I thought, I tried to download the original.

    This set up has worked successfully to Windows 7 64 bit. It seems that I need help much more expertise to guide me through this whole upward.

  • Cannot get LaserJet M175nw print in a network

    I just installed a new 100 Pro M175nw LaserJet printer on my network. However, I am unable to print over the network.

    • The printer is connected to an ethernet cable and configured with a static IP address on the network
    • I use a Windows 7 computer for printing
    • All of the internal functions of the printer work properly for example copy, reports
    • Printers when connected via USB to a computer

    When you use the printer over the network:

    • Digitization of works correctly
    • The integrated mangement of the printer web page works correctly
    • HP Print & Scan Doctor diagnostic tests give the configuration all green ticks
    • Print jobs stay in the queue until they change to an error state.
    • The printer does not recognize the print job at all - no progress message indicating the print on the console document
    • If the printer is in mode 'sleep' it doesn't wake up
    • Print test pages from the installer of HP, the Windows printer properties dialog box, Acrobat Reader and MS Word all fail.
    • All the symptoms remain the same when I turn off the Windows Firewall
    • An another HP LaserJet 2605dn printer on the network will print correctly on a different IP address, but also using the raw format on port 9100.
    • I removed all the drivers for other HP printers in case there was a conflict - no change after you have reinstalled the software.

    Can anyone suggest what I might have forgotten?  Thanks for your help.

    Problem solved.

    Critical steps seem to be:

    • I used the printer management web page (Networking / advanced) to "restore all network settings to their factory default values.
    • I then used the printer console to set the desired TCP/IP configuration - static IP, subnet mask, default gateway. No other changes.
    • The printer then worked correctly.
    • Later, I put the hostname and disabled all network services that I did not - like IPv6, Hello - and the printer continued to work properly.

    The configuration of end result is identical to what I had until I can see - but it works now.

    Thanks for your suggestions along the way.

  • HP LaserJet 1200: HP LaserJet 1200 connected via USB to the PC with Windows 7 is not redirected in DRC


    HP LaserJet 1200 connected via USB to the PC with Windows 7 (32 bit) and works fine (latest drivers via Windows Update installed).

    But when I have connected via RDC (Remote Desktop Connection) for PC with Windows XP and try to print from this PC to LJ1200 - it is not redirected in a remote desktop session and I did not see in printers and Faxes folder.

    Other printers from PC with Win7 works fine via DRC (XPS Document Writer and PDFCreator).

    During this time when I do the same thing from another PC with Windows XP, LJ1200 (connected via USB to the PC) works very well through the DRC.

    Anyone know how to make LJ1200 to be redirected in a remote desktop session?

    Thanks in advance.

    For more information, here are 2 possible solutions:

    1. put two computers in the same workgroup and then share the printer and install from the remote computer.

    2. best solution: install on PC with Windows 7 drivers for Windows XP (PCL6) - it works very well as a redirected local printer via DRC!

  • LaserJet p3015: print with the printer driver universal pcl 5 of Collator

    We use the universal PCL 5 driver for printing on a Windows 2008 R2 file and server to our printers laserjet printing network.  Our enterprise application doesn't have a way to bring together several pages together, so this will be done by the printer driver and settings.  However, I don't see an option to collect pages in the printer settings.  Is this possible with the PCL 5 UPD or it will need to be upgraded to achieve?

    As I mentioned in my previous answer, most small LaserJet printers will not print collate.

    They will just print a copy, or (as your symptoms seem to suggest) just ignore the Collate setting.

    This is because the true ranking of multiple copy requires the use of Mopier Mode, which in turn requires the availability of a hard disk of the printer - printers in most small do not have a mounted hard drive.

    To get the same effect as the standings, drivers for these printers will send multiple copies of the print job in the same connection.

    But they do if the driver configuration indicates that Mopier Mode is activated, so you must ensure that the configuration shows that it is disabled.
