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!

Piece of paper 1 inch by 2 inches jammmed and won't eject when I touch start button. I can't even see it with the cover open.


you have to open up your printer covers to extract that jammed paper. However, if you haven't tried tinkering with anything electronic before you will have to seek technical assistance from a qualified expert, but if you're willing and determined to extract that piece of paper, i suggest first you unplug any power connection from your printer, then unscrew the visible screws of the cover which is nearest the jammed piece of paper. never turn any cylinder if it resists your effort, however, try to manually turn cylinders where that small piece of paper is wedged until it comes off. Try to pull down on that piece of paper using a hair puller or forcep.

Lexmark x5490 paper jam


MORNING EVERYONE!!!

well at last managed to retrieve the paper jam. I had to remove the paper feeder then using long thin tweezers, i was able to carefully encourage the paper to come out but you have to be really careful not to damage the rollers.

Can't understand why there isn't an easier way. ie have easy access to the back or lift something up to get into the feeder!!!! anyway thanks for the support and suggestions, will gladly reccommend you guys to friends and collegues!!

HP 7280 two-sided printing instructions


I just got off a live chat with a HP tech, Seems the 7280 prints double sided from a file only. It WILL NOT copy a double sided document loaded into the document feeder, or onto the scanner. Bummer. However 7280 is still a fine printer, and I have owned it since first hit the market, more than a year ago.

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.

Do the pages go in face up or face down in the feeder to fax in a 7210 series HP all-in-one.


Should go up. There is usually an indication graphic on the feed tray that shows a piece of paper with the corner folded to indicate which side goes up. Try it both ways and see which one works. Use the copy function send something through. If you get a good copy you did it right.
