    HPLIP Error 5012

    I used the HPLIP HP Linux Imaging and Printing ( http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html ) to detect and set up my HP 4100MFP (Multifunction Printer).

    The printer was automatically detected in moments and set up took a few seconds. I attempted to print a test page and received a "communication error 5012).

    Previous attempts to print using the Ubuntu printer set up would also set up the printer with the same results of not being able to print. Error box kept appearing suggesting the printer was not turned on (form of communication error, I suppose).

    Printer does print test page OK.

    I did Google search and have found some references to other printers with mention of permissions or setting something up in root. Not sure that anything like this applies.

    System:

    OS: Ubuntu 8.10
    Processor: AMD 64 Athlon 3200
    Memory: 3 GB
    Printer Networking: Ethernet
    Printer address: Mfg default 192.0.0.192 (detected by HPLIP)
    PPD/Driver: HP Laserjet 4100 MFP v.3010.107 Postscript (Recommended)

    Summary:

    Printer self test = OK
    Cat5 cable test = OK
    HPLIP detects printer = OK
    Print job successful = NO

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you rebooted both the printer and the PC? Shut both down and star printer first. I had a similar problem until rebooting both devices. Hope it's that simple for you to.

    Re: HPLIP Error 5012

    Is it connected by a LAN cable? If yes then try setting up a static IP address. Should work wonders!

    Re: HPLIP Error 5012

    You tried accessing and configuring the printer using localhost:631 in a browser? I use that to manage a networked HP printer, without using HPLIP, and it works great.

    Re: HPLIP Error 5012

    Thanks for the replies.

    Yes, this is on an Ethernet connection.

    Yes, I did the Local Host.

    Yes, the printer's IP address is static.

    I'll attempt to shut down both pretty soon and see if that has an effect.

    Thanks, again!

    Please set a static IP adress for your wired connection in the network manager.

    Re: HPLIP Error 5012

    got it fixed. Reset IP address. It appears the IP address range I assumed we had was not valid. Moved to a lower IP address and all works OK. This makes sense when the message says that the printer may not be connected.

    I guess the system can detect the printer even if it can not send a print job to that IP address.

    The IP address range did not occur to me as I "assumed" (wrongly) that just because the system detected the printer that it would also "print" to the printer.

    The HPLIP tool really is a class act in Linux tools!

    Thanks for everyone's help!

    Re: HPLIP Error 5012

    I'm getting the same error with my HPC6180.

    I tried to open the network manager like Rayaz suggested, but it's not anywhere.I've checked every single menu and flyout and I can't find it.

    Anyhow I'm a novice with linux and would appreciate your help.

    Hi

    Right click on the network manager icon in the system tray. From there select "Edit Connections".

    Hope this helps.
