I use Windows and use a HP Deskjet 930C Printer. When using Kodak Imaging software, I check in a document, create annotations and then print. But when I did this recently, I received the following error message:
"There was an Error printing to LPT1: for the printer HP Deskjet 930C Printer.
There was a problems printing to the printer due to an unknown system error."
I tried to update the HP printer driver. I only find this error message in this Kodak software. I need a solution.
Error printing on LPT1 using HP Deskjet 930C printer
Hello good day,
On my research I have found one solution to your problem, first is Double-click the Printers icon in Control Panel, then Right-click the HP DeskJet printer, and then click Delete on the menu that appears. If you receive a prompt stating that all the files associated with the printer will be removed, click OK.
If there is more than one HP DeskJet printer in the Printers folder, repeat step 2 for each HP DeskJet printer. Locate and remove the following files in the Windows folder: Deskjet.ini, Deskjetc.ini NOTE: Your computer may have only one of these files, or both. Locate and remove the following files in the WindowsSystem folder.
To avoid deleting files that may be crucial to other HP components, delete only these files:
DESKJETC.DRV, HPDSKJET.DRV, HPSETUP3.DLL, HPV1284.DLL, HPV500.HPC, HPV500C.HPC, HPV510.HPC, HPV520.HPC, HPV540_A.HPC, HPV540_B.HPC, HPV550C.HPC, HPV560C.HPC, HPV660C.HPC HPVBG.EXE, HPVCM.HPM, HPVCNFIG.EXE, HPVDOS.DLL, HPVDSM.EXE, HPVEXT24.DLL, HPVHT.DLL, HPVMLC.DLL,
HPVMLCH.EXE, HPVMON.DLL, HPVPML.DLL, HPVQP.DLL, HPVQPR.DLL, HPVRES.DLL, HPVTTPCL.DLL, HPVUI.DLL, HPVWCPS.DLL, HPVWIN.DLL, SCONFIG.DLL, TBKBASE.DLL, TBKCOMP.DLL, TBKNET.EXE, TBKUTIL.DLL, TBOOK.EXE
Then Rename all the Oem.inf files in the WindowsInf folder, where is an incremental number starting at 0. NOTE: Do not use the oem*.inf wildcard to rename files.
Doing so may cause the wrong files to be renamed. For information about rebuilding the driver information database, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: ARTICLE ID: 137377 TITLE: Removing Windows 3.1 Drivers from Wizard Hardware Lists If the HP DeskJet Status Monitor is in the Startup group, remove it.
To do so, follow these steps Use the right mouse button to click the Taskbar, and then click Properties on the menu that appears. Click the Start Menu Programs tab, and then click Remove. Double-click the Startup branch to expand it. Click the HP DeskJet Status Monitor shortcut, and then click Remove. Click Close.
Then Restart your computer. Use the Add Printer Wizard to reinstall the HP DeskJet printer. NOTE: Make sure to select the DeskJet driver included with Windows 95, not the Windows 3.x HP printer driver. If the new Deskjet Printer does not show up in the Add New Hardware List, remove the Drvidx.bin and Drvdata.bin files from the WindowsInf folder. This will cause the Add New Hardware Device Database list to be updated with the new printer.
