    I have a HP laserjet 1012 with OSX 10.6.2

    The printer works, but after a few jobs, it stops. I have to shut it off and restart it and clear the queue of any jobs that didn't print.
    Thoughts on rectifying this?
    Thanks.

    • How are you connected to the printer?
    • Which driver are you using?

    I have a 1012 here and it works the same way. Usually it works but at random I will need to either unplug the USB cable or power cycle the printer, then restart the print queue.
    I also have a 1012 at home and it's attached to a Time Capsule and shared that way- it works fine.

    I've never seen a LJ 1012. Does it have a parallel port and you're using a USB-parallel adapter cable? If so, you should install the alternate USB driver "usbtb:"

    Don't know. I'll have to check tonite.
    I do know that I'm using a "basic" USB cable.
