|22 SERIAL I/O
ERROR, PRESS GO KEY
22 PARALLEL IO ERROR, PRESS GO KEY
22 HP MIO ERROR, PRESS GO
|For serial or
parallel configuration, the computer and printer are not
communicating because of improper signal protocols. This
is an I/O buffer overrun error.
Parallel Configuration: may mean a loose cable connection or a bad or poor quality cable.
Serial Configuration: wrong pacing option may have been selected. The HP LaserJet printer uses XON/XOFF and DTR/DSR signal protocols rather than ETX/ACK protocol.
MIO configuration: This is an I/O buffer overrun error.
|Press [Go] to clear
the error message (data will be lost). If the error
continues, call your dealer or HP service representative.
Parallel configuration: check for loose cable; use a high-quality cable - some cables may be missing pin connections.
Serial configuration: check for correct serial pacing option.
If you are using an I/O card see the manual for that device ro contact your dealer.
If you are on a network, contact your network administrator.
