I made another test but there is a message on the printer icon that the printer is out of paper even it the tray is havibg enough paper. Can anyone help me please?
Wow! A 6L. Most of those are gone now.
Did your USB to Parallel Adapter have software that came with it? Did you reload that software?
Does the 6L print a self test page properly without being connected to the laptop?
HP LaserJet 6L printer
1. Make sure that the Ready (bottom) light is on and all other lights are off. If the printer is in sleep
mode, bring it to a Ready state by briefly pressing and releasing the Front Panel button.
2. Briefly press and release the Front Panel button.
The Data (middle) light will come on and the Ready light will blink. The Self-Test page will print.
