Re: Windows 7 Printer driver for HP Laserjet 1012

This is the driver page for the LJ 1012:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=306510&lang=en&cc=us&...

 

Windows 7 drivers are not available for this printer, unfortunately due to the age of the product.

Re: Windows 7 Printer driver for HP Laserjet 1012

I just installed my 1012 by using the Vista 32-bit and everything seems fine.

Re: Windows 7 Printer driver for HP Laserjet 1012

I just installed the vista 64 bit driver on my windows 7 64 bit laptop and it is working beautifully. This is the link (sorry I don't know how to shorten them)  If the link doesn't work you can search for drivers right on HP's website for the 1012 printer. It shows a list of platforms and I chose the vista 64 bit since a windows 7 wasn't listed.  Good luck! 

 

Forgot to add that I installed the printer by plugging in the usb first and then going to the printers/devices area to troubleshoot when the error for the missing driver popped up. I then clicked on properties and updated the driver for the usb port by pointing it to the unzipped file I downloaded from hp (link below).  It took less than 5 minutes total and the printer is printing pages like it does for my vista desktop. No weird characters, lines, etc.

This did not work for my 1012.  I keep getting the test page "Unsupported Personality: PCL"

What am I doing wrong?

Re: Windows 7 Printer driver for HP Laserjet 1012

I have seen multiple people use the Laserjet 1015 Windows 7 drivers for the LJ 1012. Try this:

 

From Start/Devices and Printers.

-Choose add a printer.

-Choose Windows update at the bottom of the install printer driver window because the HP Laserjet 1015 will not       be on the list of HP printers. But after the update there it was "HP Laserjet 1015".

-Choose Generic IEEE 1284.4 as the printer port 

 

Here is a how to document: HP LaserJet, Color LaserJet, and LaserJet AiO/MFP Products - Install the driver included in the Wind...

 

Best of luck!
