Any geniuses out there want to chime in? Add your answer John will be eternally grateful. Does someone understand whats possibly going on and how perhaps to tell the printer to disregard the one line page? Answer this question I have this problem too Subscribed to new answers. It would technically violate the license agreement to reverse engineer and recompile the driver, but at this point I how doubt they will enforce the termination provisions on such a old printer. Is this a good question? I had to find a cable adapter to convert between the parallel printer plug and theUSB port on the laptop.

I have since modified the print driver. Along those lines where would one go to learn to modify existing drivers for older equipment?

I’m willing to read up on new languages if I knew where to start.
What language is it written in? If you send a 2 page document, it spits out another one line page then prints the next page normally and so on.

Does someone understand whats possibly going on and how perhaps to tell the printer to disregard the one line page? That’s the leverage that the manufacturers have over us is that even if their gadgets still function as designed they are not making the ho forward compatible let alone reverse compatible.
If I plug into the right rear USB port it activates the printer which is a 32 bit device. How complicated is it to write or modify an expired driver for a printer. Since the third world is getting a lot of older but serviceable used equipment from us, it would seem only fair to teach ourselves how to modify drivers to continue being useful.
Most Desojet Newest Oldest. I’ve been modifying mechanical mechanisms for years. Any geniuses desojet there want to chime in? The odd thing about the print job is that it prints the error page first and then prints the job as if everything is OK. Also, the reason for a lack of 3rd party drivers is 855c Inkjet disposal rates-people assume they dump them just for being old, and nobody writes 3rd party drivers as a result-implied obsolesce at it’s finest.
I have looked for a driver there and of the thousands there are the C is missing. Is this a good question? I had to find a cable adapter to convert between the parallel printer plug and theUSB port on the laptop. Seems like you could just insert a line of code in the driver to disregard the error message and move on.
Its my understanding that Microsoft is right there with HP in relegating the C to the scrap heap. I’ve also written computer code in the olden days which worked. This question was migrated from http: Hopefully this information is useful to reverse engineering the driver, finding third party Win hpp drivers or writing your own.
Repair guides and support for the HP’s basic inkjet printer line, the DeskJet. Thanks for the explanation of buffer pages.
Answer this question I have this problem too Subscribed to new answers. HP says that there isn’t a print driver which will allow our new laptop to print to our old C printer. Add your answer John will be eternally grateful. Was this answer helpful? The printer then prints a page with one line. Then the page Deskmet sent to print, prints normally.
