HP Deskjet F4140 tantruming

My Deskjet F4140 was working fine until I pulled a piece of paper out from the feeder. It stopped, turned itself off, and nothing I've tried will make it come back on ... I tried rebooting by unplugging and plugging it back in, but I'm wondering whether this is strictly a one-way feeder and once it's started it can't tolerate reverse mode. Any thoughts on how I can get it to work again? I just replaced both ink cartridges. HELP!!

Mahalo,
Beth

Hello!

Try unplugging your printer from the wall outlet and leaving it that way for ~30min.
If this does no help then it means that a fuse has burnt out somwhere in the device.
Sadly there is no manual on how to disasemble a F4140, plus it would void your waranty.
I suggest you try to return it under waranty, just don't say you don't know why it stopped working ;]


Hope this helps!

The paper you scan is stuck


There is debris blocking the paper path in the document feeder. This could be a staple or a shard of torn paper blocking the path wedged into a tooth of the diverter arm or a sensor flag. I would suggest that if there is a small wheel or knob closest to you when you raise the document feed lid, put a piece of #28 lbs card-stock into the document feeder guides, turn the wheel/knob to pull the paper/cardstock into the ADF and continue until it either pushes the shard/debris out or stops moving the paper no matter how much you turn the wheel/knob. This will tell you where in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) the blockage is located.

Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Thanks
Newton

Information on how to use rear feed


1. Prepare your doc/file for printing.
2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated.
3. Change printer setup to feed from rear.
4. Print.

Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."

My HP Deskjet F4140 was working fine until I got a piece of paper stuck. I removed and now it wont print. States printer off line and can not print a test page. IT will copy however.


Turn it off. Unplug the power cord from the printer & usb wait a minute. Plug USB in & than the power cable & turn it on. Next
Open the Printers folder.
Right-click the icon of the printer in use, and then click Open .
Click Printer on the menu, and then ensure that there are no checkmarks next to Pause Printing or Use Printer Offline . If a checkmark is present on either, click the menu option to remove it. If the menu shows Use Printer Online , click that option.
