HP 1012 printer with Windows 7 64-bit

Looking for HP 1012 printer driver for Windows 7?

 

You, like me, tried to install the HP 1012 printer onto a computer that ran Windows 7, but to no avail.

 

You need to go to Start --> Devices and Printers -->  Add a printer --> Add a local printer --> Select ":Use an existing port: DOT4_001 (Generic IEEE 1284.4 printing support)" --> click Next --> Select HP for manufacturer --> scroll down to HP LaserJet 3055 PCL5.  Select this as your printer.

 

That's it, and make sure it's set as the default printer.

 

You're welcome  :smileyhappy:

This only works with some print jobs, better than nothing but I can't get it to work on PDF documents.

I read that installing the HP LaserJet 3055 PCL5, driver would enable my HP Laserjet 1012.  I downloaded the software and followed the directions and the printer gives me "Unsupported Personality PCL"  No success.  sweet_land04
