Printing problem

I have a HP LaserJet 5L installed (local). It seems working but when I try
to print it give me only white papers. What’s wrong !!! I’m sure that the
printer is working because I use it on the same machine with Windows.

Can you check and see if you’re trying to print in color or black and white?
(click preferences and change the Color mode to B&W if it’s Color).

Can you tell me if that works?

Thanks,

fab,

I’ve got the same problem with my HP LaserJet 6P. Blank pages!!!

I’ve seen several other posts here with the same printer problems.

I’ll keep hunting for a solution and I’ll post if i find one.

Dave,

I’ve got the same problem that fabrice has.
Changing the color output option (to B&W) does not solve the problem, still
get blank pages.

Thanks, we think we’ve got the problem solved so it should be fixed in the next patch.

Any progress with this problem ?

(Where I can download patch ?)

It should have been fixed in the January release of RTP.

If you mean so-called QNX6, I have it. I have also HP LaserJet 4L.
And copies from my printer are blank like no toner inserted.
Please, help. Printer is ok and supports PCL.

I use QNX 6.0 and get on a HP-Laserjet 5 only emtpy pages, too.

In Detail:
I installed with the package manager QNX from 01/18/01 over QNX from
09/21/00. The PC isn’t connected with a network. The printer is
connected with LPT 1 of the PC.
I tried three different printers (HP Deskjet 970C, HP Deskjet 1120C,
HP Laserjet 5) and booted the PC each time after connecting another
printer.
Printing from a terminal window, e.g. ‘lpr -P hp-lj5 test.c’, works for
all printers. Printing from the editor ‘ped’ works for both Deskjets,
but the Laserjet 5 ejects empty pages only .
ls -al … displays:
/usr/bin/lpr 17,496 Oct 13 06:46
/usr/bin/phs-to-pcl 50,849 Oct 26 08:09
/usr/sbin/spooler 18,605 Oct 27 18:48

I hope this information helps.
