HP LaserJet 2200 Printer Series - Print Jobs Hang in Print Queue and Reprint When PC Rebooted

Issue:
When printing to the HP LaserJet 2200 printer over a network, jobs print successfully, and the print queue shows "Status - Printed", but the jobs do not clear the queue. If the computer is rebooted, the job will print again. This typically occurs when using the printing system from the CD-ROM.
Workaround
There are three different workarounds available to solve this issue. Follow each workaround, in the order provided, as necessary to correct this issue.
Disable bidirectional support in the printer driver
Disabling bidirectional printing results in the print spooler being unable to use any language monitor. A conflict in the printing system language monitor can cause jobs to hang in the print queue. Follow the steps below for the applicable operating system.
Windows NT 4.0 and 2000
  1. From the Windows desktop, select Start, Settings then Printers.
  2. Right-click the HP LaserJet 2200 driver icon and click Properties.
  3. Select the Ports tab.
  4. Uncheck the box next to Enable Bidirectional Support.
  5. Click Apply (if applicable).
  6. Click OK to exit the driver properties.
Windows 95, 98, Me
  1. From the Windows desktop, select Start, Settings then Printers.
  2. Right-click the HP LaserJet 2200 driver icon and click Properties.
  3. Select the Details tab.
  4. Click Spool Settings.
  5. Select Disable Bidirectional support for this printer, and click OK.
  6. Click Apply (if applicable).
  7. Click OK to exit the driver properties.
Download a PCL6 driver compatible with the HP LaserJet 2200 printer from www.hp.com
Download and install the HP LaserJet 4000 PCL6 driver from www.hp.com. This driver is compatible with the HP LaserJet 2200 and provides PCL6 capabilities. It also allows duplexing and tray selection options. Once the HP LaserJet 4000 PCL6 driver is installed, disable bidirectional support for that driver before printing.
Install an alternate Microsoft(R) driver
Install an alternate driver provided by Windows. Alternate drivers compatible with the HP LaserJet 2200 printer, such as the HP LaserJet 4 Plus are available in the Add Printer Wizard. To access the Add Printer Wizard, select Start, Settings, then Printers from the Windows desktop. The Add Printer Wizard icon is available in the Printers folder. Double-click the Add Printer Wizard icon to install an alternate driver.
