Question about HP Business Inkjet 1100dtn Printer

HP business inkjet 1100

Will not print at all. PC sends document to printer, no document appears in the printer queue. I can print a test page ok by pressing the paper icon on the printer, but nothing else.

A colleague was printing documents last Friday and it stopped in the middle of the run and has not worked since.

Your help would be appreciated

    I have a similar problem in that the PC sends documents to printer but the paper icon light remains on. I have tried unplugging everything for a while but to no avail.

This very simple solution works on my Business Inkjet 1100.
1) Turn the printer off, then back on, to clear the error.
2) Set your computer's clock back to a date prior to the cartridge expiry date.
3) Print something, (any documents will do).
4) Set your computer's clock forward to the correct date and the printer should still print, and ignore the expired cartridges.
My 1100 re-checks the cartridges and dates occasionally, but not frequently (it has been about two months between checks) so you might need to repeat this process every two months or so until you have used up your expired cartridges.

This solution is much easier than dismantling the printer and changing/removing wires!

Here is How to run expired ink
Ok it took me a while to realize this but it is actually really simple to bypass them. The bad news is you must first go out and buy a new cartridge of that same color. Then take a knife and cut the lower stripe on both sides of the cartridge right where they assembled it. Dont worry you wont damage the cartridge. Then simply un-snap it on the new cartridge. The chip that you need comes off with it all in one piece. Then take your old cartridge and do the same thing. Finally snap the newest one in place on the old cartridge and your are ready to go. Its that easy. When you finally run that one out of ink remove it and put it back on the new cartridge and you can then run it.
Yes its that easy..... And it really works no damage no problems.

You have expired ink or print heads. You can print test pages, but ABOSLUTELY NOTHING HAPPENS when you try and print a document.

Check the expiration dates on your cartridges and printheads.

Printer is paused wont restart


it may be that you have a corrupt file in the print queue, a quick fix is possible - switch the power socket OFF, disconnect the PC/Network connections.
power on the printer, it should have had time to clear the memory now, see if the machine is able to print a menu page or config sheet ( open menu enter the information menu- print config sheet:)
if the printeris able to do thiswith no network connections you have eliminated the printer from the problem. next switch on and log into your PC, still disconnected from printer, open print queue and delete all documents from the queue ( your not deleting the files ( just the print requests)) once this is done then reconnect the printer and send first a windows test page ( confirm working connections first ) then attempt to print the failed file - if it fails in the same manner - the file was your problem.

My printer, HP 8500, has been trying to delete a document for hours with no apparent results. I am unable to print anything else although it does put a new document in queue. I do not get any error...


There are 2 simple methods to resolve any print job stuck in queue issue. However, both the methods will not fix printing issue if the HP Printer is in Error mode. Make sure your printer is able to print self test page to prove its functionality,

First method.

This Utility program resolve all the printing issue for HP Printers Only ( Network and USB connection )

This Utility will Resolve :

1. Check Connectivity between the Pc/laptop and HP Printer
2. Check if there any Documents stuck in Queue
3. Check if all the software/Drivers are correctly Installed
4. Check if the HP Printer icon is the default icon to print
5. Will Resolve Printer Spooler Issue and few more issue

Download the file on Desktop and Run the program ( Ex. File name = HPPDU.EXE )

Click Here to download the Utility and save on Desktop location
Run the HPPDU file and follow the instruction on screen to fix.

If this does not fix, try the 2nd Method given below ( this is manual process to clear the print job stuck in queue )

This works for all brands of printers ( HP, Canon, Epson, Brother etc )

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > then select Command prompt, then the black window will open and there type NET STOP SPOOLER and hit enter that will confirm service is stopped , after that on the black window type NET START SPOOLER and hit enter. Repeat this step 3-4 times and end the command with NET START SPOOLER and hit enter. Open the Printers folder and Refresh the Window ( Press F5 on the keyboard )

The service will be started and all print queue should already be remove.

// Above given solutions help in resolving print queue issue, however check the printer functionality if it is working fine ( the printer should be in working condition and should be able to print self test page, this utility cannot fix printer hardware issue //

Regards,
Ron

Constantly flashes printing document biut no document printing


You need to isolate the problem to either your PC, application software, interface, or printer.

I would start by unpluging the printer data cable and rebooting it.
Then print the Configuration page from the printers <Information> menu.

If this is OK, then the problem lies at the PC end....

Make sure you printer queue is clear, then print the Windows test page from in the Printer Driver window.

Printer queue is full


This problem seems to be related to USB printers and print queue issues are very common in Mac OS computers and Windows 2000 PCs.

You don't say if you are using a USB connector, but they're pretty common these days. You also don't say if you're using a Mac or PC, but most people use PCs. I did find a solution for this issue that says it's related to Windows 2000 and a USB printer, but may apply to other operating system platforms:

Print Jobs are Stuck in the Print Queue

The first step to this solution is to download and install an HP diagnostic software utility. There's a separate page at HP that describes the utility and lets you download it:

HP Printing and Diagnostic Utility

I didn't find any information that specifically said that you "can" print a test page but "can't" print a document.

Another reason why you might be able to print a test page but not a document isn't related to the printer but the application that created the document. If you are having trouble with Word or Excel or whatever office application you used to create the doc, it might not print. That's why it is helpful to try to print a variety of different docs, created with different apps.

It could also be the individual document. Occasionally, a document becomes corrupted and while you may be able to open it (and sometimes you can't do even that), it doesn't print. If you haven't tried printing more than one document, you can test this by creating another doc in the same app and seeing if it'll print.

Try doing test prints with different docs and then with docs created in different apps. If those work, it's doc/app related. If they don't, try the links I suggested above.

Good luck.
