Network printer (HP Officejet) not reacting


Hi,

I am trying to print on a HP Officejet L7500 over the network from my Ubuntu laptop. When I try to print the print job remains in the status "printing", but the printer does not react.
(From a windows machine everything works fine.)
I have checked
hplip.sourceforge.net/troubleshooting/network.html

With lpstat -p I get:
Printer OfficeJet-Pro-L7500 ist frei. freigegeben seit Fr 14 Sep 2007 06:20:45 CEST
Network host '192.168.123.135' is busy; will retry in 30 seconds...

Why does my laptop think, the printer is busy (it is not!). Any ideas what to check next?

thank you,

Wolfgang

I have an OfficeJet 7310 on a network and had this same thing happen occasionally. The problem I found was that my router (which is also the DHCP server) would assign the printer a different IP address. To get the printer to work again I found what address the printer was assigned and had to manually enter that in the printer properties.

This is using Ubuntu Feisty Fawn and hplip drivers. In the end I assigned my computers and printer a "static dhcp" address and I haven't had the problem since.

lpstat -p and printing the configuration settings directly from the printer both give the same expected IP-address. What else could be the problem? What else could I try?

thank you,

Wolfgang

Sorry for the late reply - hunting season and getting things done before winter have taken up a lot of time.

The only other thing I can think of is to recheck and be sure you have the proper driver selected and that the network cable is not bad. A couple of long shots, but you never know. Unfortunately I don't know where else you can look for the problem.
