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  Smiley Happy

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
