I tried both versions of the Universal Print Driver
(new version 4.7) but they did not work. I also tried other remedies seen elsewhere: installing the 1000 drivers
and ignoring error messages, trying drivers for the 5P and 6P, etc. Nothing works.
Imagine building a piece of hardware that still works after 4 years and not supporting it. What a load of junk.
They still support the printer I had before the 1000 (the LaserJet 5L). What sense does that make?
Some have suggested new printers are not so expensive. Well, most printers out there are inkjet and the cost is in the ink. My laserjet cartridges last about 2 years and cost $60. That must be why HP is discontinuing the printer. It works and doesn't cost users hundreds of dollars a year to operate.
So my new HP computer with Vista 64 bit now just cost me another $150-300 for a new printer. What a racket.
