Recently purchased a new Dell XPS with windows 10 - 64bit.
I have a brand new UGreen USB to CN36 Parallel printer adapter cable (the printer does not have the N (network card)
Hooked up my old workhorse, HP Laserjet 5100 and surprisingly it was found with plug n play.
Tried a test page and machine gave an error to clear jam - to open and close front panel.
Did that then it printed out a blank page that only reads:
PCL XL error Subsystem: Image Error:IlliegalAttributeValue Operator: ReadImage Position:29
Went to HP website and downloaded latest drivers for pcl16-x64-188.8.131.5296 & ps-x64-184.108.40.20696
Followed tutorial on this board:
windows+R to get run command, typed in printui.exe /s and chose drivers tab, uninstalled the HP printer.
Installed NEW universal HP drivers.
Rebooted system, then turned on HP 5100.
Nothing was found.
Went to add printers, can't find it, HP 5100 not there anymore.
Went to universal driver (shows in my list of printers) and clicked test print, got error printer not there.
Any suggestions? Does this work with windows 10 or am I wasting my time trying to make it happen??
Thanks in advance,

There was a post on here recently and what someone found worked with another older printer was to change the print processor in the driver from RAW to NT EMF (see photo below, as you can see there are several print processors to chose from so you may need to try a couple of options to find the most compatible one.)

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately I tried changing processors and nothing happened. I do remember having this same problem on a laptop running windows 7 and never had it resolved. It ran fine with XP though.

Have you tried an older UPD driver or the PCL 5 driver? I have some archived ones I can post up on Dropbox if you want to try.

Make sure the connected port is USB001 (002.....) and not LPT1.
