I have an HP LaserJet P2035N connected to my home network. I have it set up as a printer on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. Windows found the printer on the network and installed a driver itself.

However, when I print, it continues to print copy after copy of any job that I send it. To stop the printing, I have to open the print spool and delete the job - is the printer supposed to be handling the queue deletion? Any ideas what would cause this?


On the Ports tab of the Printer Properties window, I unchecked "Enable bidirectional support" and it started operating normally.

    This worked for me, too. 32-bit Windows 7, with an HP LaserJet p1606dn connected over the network. Jun 30 '14 at 16:28
