HP600 Control Panel for DOS - Unknown Status
AlunJones Aug-13-01 03:33 PM
Am using a HP600 serie printer, when I boot up my machine a DOS screen is displayed, i.e, the Control Panel for DOS, which states that the 'Printer Status is Unknown', have tried all the options to try and rectify the problem but it is still being displayed. Can minimise the screen and use the PC as normal, printer works fine, cna print as normal, etc., any suggestion gratefully recieved.

What version of Windows do you have installed? Larry

Try booting to DOS by holding the F8 key just as Windows is about to start and making the appropriate selection in the resulting menu. Edit the Autoexec.bat file with:
C:\>edit autoexec.bat
Look for a line in the file similar to the following:
C:\DESKJET\DJCP
Rem-out the line by putting rem in front of it as follows:
rem C:\DESKJET\DJCP
(Putting rem in front of line in a DOS batch file converts the line into a non-executing remark or comment line.)
Save the file and Exit the editor
Reboot.
I guessed about the line being in the autoexec.bat. If it isnít there, please come back. Larry
