I have a Mac-Mini and an HP Laser Jet 1200 printer. Suddenly

This answer was rated:

I have a Mac-Mini and an HP Laser Jet 1200 printer. Suddenly the computer (or something) decided I shouldn't print anything. I send something from Word or Adobe to be printed, the printer immediately pauses. I open the printer control page and hit "Resume Printing". It replies "Unable to send print data". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer and printer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

Please sorry about the issue. Please try the following:

  1. Disconnect the printer's USB cable from the computer for now.
  2. Click on the Apple logo at the upper left corner of the computer's screen, then select System Preferences..., then open Print & Fax.
  3. Select the HP... printer, then click on the - (minus) icon to delete it.
  4. Turn on the printer, and reconnect the USB printer cable to the computer.
  5. Click on the + (plus) icon and re-add the HP... printer.
  6. Then check printing.


Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you,
