I have installed HP Laserjet 6L Printer. The printer is automatically detected. But when i try to print any file, the printer doesn't respond at all.

I shifted the printer to another machine. The printer was working fine but after sometime, the same problem occurred. I restarted the computer, printer but no avail. The printer is not responding to the requests.

    Hi Vinod,
    I am having the exact same problem with my HP Laserjet 6L. I am using a Windows XP machine and the printer is connected to the LPT1 port.
    Could you please let me know how your problem was solved?

          I'm also having the same problem. The top light is on (ligntning bolt symbol on the side of the light). When I recycle the power, it cycles through and stops at the lightning bolt. Unfortunately, I do not have a manual to go to.

    I've seen that happen from two causes: buggy driver (contact manufacturer to resolve) and older USB chipset i.e. USB connection for printer not fully compatible with USB port on computer. If your computer is more than 3 years old, try connecting your printer to a newer computer and see if the problem still happens.
