I have looked for a driver there and of the thousands there are the C is missing. I’m willing to read up on new languages if I knew where to start. Is this a good question? The odd thing about the print job is that it prints the error page first and then prints the job as if everything is OK.
If you send a 2 deekjet document, it spits out another one line page then prints the next page normally and so on.
Its my understanding that Microsoft is right there with HP in relegating the C to the scrap heap. Seems like you could just insert a line of code in the driver to disregard the error message and move on.
Add your answer John will be eternally grateful.
That’s the leverage that the manufacturers have over us is that even if their gadgets still deskmet as designed they are not making the software forward compatible let alone reverse compatible. Since the third world is getting a lot of older but serviceable used equipment from us, it would seem only fair to teach ourselves how to modify drivers to continue being useful.
How complicated is it to write or modify an expired driver for a printer. I’ve also written computer code in the olden days which worked. Also, the reason for a lack of 3rd party drivers is implied Inkjet disposal rates-people assume they dump them just for being old, and nobody writes feskjet party drivers as a result-implied obsolesce at it’s finest.
Does someone understand whats possibly going on and how perhaps to tell dskjet printer to disregard the one line page? Answer this question I have this problem too Subscribed to new answers. Hopefully this information is useful to reverse engineering the driver, finding third party Win 7 drivers or writing your own.

This question was migrated from http: I have since modified the print driver. The printer then prints a page with one line. Was this answer helpful? I had to find a cable adapter to convert between the parallel printer plug and theUSB port on the laptop. I’ve been modifying mechanical mechanisms for years.
Repair guides and support for the HP’s basic inkjet printer line, the DeskJet. If I plug into the right rear USB port it activates the printer which is a 32 bit device.
Any geniuses out there want to chime in? HP says that there isn’t a print driver which will allow our new laptop to print to our old C printer.
Then the page I sent to print, prints normally. Thanks for the explanation of buffer deskjef. Along those lines where would one go to learn to modify existing drivers for older equipment?
It would technically violate the license agreement to reverse engineer and recompile the driver, but at this point I how doubt they will enforce the termination provisions on such a old printer. What language is it written in?
