I have a new Windows 7 laptop. I too had problems getting my 1012 laserjet to work. Your workaround using the 3055 PCL5 Windows driver works perfectly!!!
Thanks. You saved me buying a new printer....

THANK YOU!!!!! I REALLY LOVE MY LASER JET 1012 AND I HAD SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS TRYING TO TRICK WINDOWS 7 INTO RECOGNIZING IT AS A PRINTER TO NO AVAIL.... UNTIL I READ YOUR ENTRY. THANK YOU YOUR SOLUTION IS BY FAR THE SIMPLIST AND LIKE YOU SAID "WORKS LIKE A CHARM" I WANT TO SEND YOU FLOWERS!!!

Thank you. After buying another printer, taking it back, missing my HP1012 the advice I got from this website was worth a million Geek Squads. Call it a 3055--does not matter.

THIS WORKED LIKE A CHARM. EXCELLENT JOB. I WISH THIS POSTING COULD GO TO THE TOP OF THE PAGE SO THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS TO GO THROUGH THE RUN AROUND TO GET THEIR HP 1012 PRINTER TO WORK.
AGAIN, GREAT JOB!!!!

Wa Hoooo!!!!!!! You saved me the frustration of living with my current workaround (print to pdf on my network) or buying a new printer when mine is FINE.
Thank you so much. Simple, complete FIX!!

I tried the LJ1012 driver workaround with the LJ 3055 driver, and it worked for a few days. Now when I try to print, all I get is an error message, "Unsupported Personality: PCL," on an otherwise blank page. I tried deleting and reinstalling the 3055 driver and got the same error. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?
