Thread: Laserjet 1320 printer at 1200 DPI?

    Default Laserjet 1320 printer at 1200 DPI?

    I have a Hewlett Packard Laserjet 1320 monochrome laser printer. While
    I had Microsoft Windows XP, this printer operated very nicely at 1200
    DPI (dots per inch).

    After I swapped out Windows XP for Windows 7, I had trouble with this
    printer. I installed the "universal" PCL5 print driver recommended by
    the HP support web pile. Verily, and my printer worked again. But it
    only gives me 600 DPI. No option for higher density in the printer setup
    dialog.

    I also lost the ability to print Postscript with this printer. No solution
    recommended by the HP support web pile.

    The HP user forums provide only noise. Has anyone here found a solution?
    I mean, besides avoiding HP products.

    From the HP site...
    "Windows Vista Driver Supported in Windows 7 Environment6
    Windows Vista model specific drivers may also be used in the Windows 7
    operating environment for this product"

    I seem to recall that Adobe used to have a generic PS driver - but that's
    been a while. You could always attach the printer to a Linux print server.

    David:
    Try the drivers listed at
    "http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=
    en&cc=us&prodNameId=410624&taskId=135&prodTypeId=1 8972&prodSeriesId
    =410622&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20".
    for drivers for your printer. There are other models listed for the LaserJet
    1320 at http://www.hp.com/#Support. Have a great day.

    Yeah. It's always stupid to make things WORK.

    You actually think your advice was practical? Or correct? Or even doable?
    Think again...if that's possible.

    I also have this printer. I finally gave up and installed the PCL6 driver. I
    don't believe that there are any problems printing postscript. Also, this
    driver allows you to designate two sided printing. I could not find a way to
    do that in the universal driver.

    Sure it's doable. Yes, it is correct. It's obviously practical.
