HP LaserJet P1606dn Continually Printing

We had a problem where an HP LaserJet P1606dn kept spitting page after page of the same Test Print page without stop.

We managed to find the solution to the problem:

We disabled Bidirectional print support and power cycled the printer. It finally stopped spitting out the same print test page.

If that did not work we would have downloaded the latest driver package from HP’s Web site as well as a firmware update (this printer is relatively new so firmware is up to date) if required.

For now we have a printer that is doing what it is supposed to be doing for this small equipment rentals office.
