Driver for a hp LaserJet 1000 series

This printer is very economical and has been working for years, but it just won't talk to Windows 7 64bit.  Is there a way to make one of the HP drivers for a newer machine work for this host-based printer?  I was hoping to retire my old XP machine, but it looks as if I might have to keep it around just as a print server (and still it isn't easy to get the W7 machine to print even through another machine).

Re: Driver for a hp LaserJet 1000 series

HP does not have Windows 7 driver or an alternate Windows 7 driver available for the LJ 1000.
Please note I have a new account Print_Hint

Re: Driver for a hp LaserJet 1000 series

All

I have just succesfully found a solution to making the laser jet 1000 work under windows 7 64bit

The trick  is  that you need a GDI driver  and  finding a supplier ( other than HP ) who has built one.


Go to the following link and download the windows 7  64 bit driver for the following printer

http://onyxftp.mykonicaminolta.com/download/Search.aspx?ht=

search desktop printer -> magicolor 2430DL ->drivers -> windows 7 64bit

KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2430DL

install the drivers

Add the printer as you would normally and then
under printer properties select advanced and under print processor select winprint raw

The reason this works is that this printer uses the same hardware GDI engine as the lasjet 1000

Enjoy

Re: Driver for a hp LaserJet 1000 series

The way I have it set up is that my laserjet 1000 is plugged into a seperate old PC running windows 2000 with laserjet 1000 drivers loaded on it as its shared by various household computer ranging from Macbook to XP and now windows7.

 

I connect to it on windows 7 by adding a local printer and direct mapping it by creating a new port and putting in the box

\\servername or ip address\printersharename

i.e

\\\Printerserver\Laserjet1000

 

set up the properties as I precviously described and it works fine

 

Note direct USB connection does not work

If I have some time to kill , I'll see if I can get the direct USB to work
