Print Orientation issues

We typically print 24x36 sheets but also from time to time print 18x24 sheets; however, when printing 18x24 the page always prints out 24x24 square and needs to br trimmed to size. It used to print out correctly but we haven't found out what the setting is to fix it. We'd like to print the 18x24 size in the rotated orientation so we do not need to trim the paper. Can you help us fix this?

Thank you.

I had the same trouble but found that if i set the printer setting on "horizontal" for 18 x 24 (with a 24" roll of paper) and "vertical" for the 24 x 36 it worked the way I wanted. Hope that helps.

LOCATION OF PRINTER SENSOR


Jams

Clearing jams

CAUTION Do not use sharp objects, such as tweezers or needle nose pliers, to remove jams.
Damage caused by sharp objects will not be covered by the warranty.

CAUTION Always pull jammed media in the direction it would travel through the paper path.
Do not pull jammed media against the direction of travel through the paper path to avoid damage
to the printer.

To prevent damage to the printer when clearing jams, including jams in the output bin, always open the
print-cartridge door and remove the print cartridge. Keep the door open and the cartridge out until the
jam has been cleared. Opening the print-cartridge door and removing the print cartridge relieves tension
on the printer rollers, which prevents damage to the printer and makes the removal of jammed pages
easier.

Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a print job. You are notified of a media jam by an error
from the software and the printer control panel lights. See Control-panel lights (HP LaserJet 1010 series
printers) on page 102 or Control-panel lights (HP LaserJet 1020 printer) on page 106.

The following are some of the causes of media jams:

?

The input trays are loaded improperly or are too full. See Loading media on page 25.

NOTE When you add new media, always remove all of the media from the input tray and
straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding
through the printer at one time, reducing media jams.

The media does not meet HP specifications. See Media specifications on page 21.

?

Typical media jam locations

?

?

?

Print cartridge area: See Removing a jammed page on page 43.

Input tray area: If the page is still sticking out of the input tray, gently try to remove it from the input
tray without tearing the page. If you feel resistance, see Removing a jammed page on page 43.

Output path: If the page is sticking out of the output bin, see Removing a jammed page


NOTE There might be loose toner in the printer after a media jam. This toner clears up after
a few sheets are printed.

Removing a jammed page

Use the procedures in this section to remove a jam.

CAUTION Media jams might result in loose toner on the page. If you get any toner on your
clothes, wash them in cold water. Hot water will permanently set the toner into the fabric.


Partshere Troubleshooting

CAUTION To prevent damage to the printer when clearing jams, including jams in the output
bin, always open the print cartridge door and remove the print cartridge.

To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light. Cover the print
cartridge with a sheet of paper.

NOTE The following illustrations show the HP LaserJet 1020 printer. The same procedure is
used to remove a jam in the HP LaserJet 1010 series printers.

1

Open the print cartridge door, and remove the print cartridge.

2

Grasp the middle edge of the side of the media that is most visible, and carefully pull it free from
the printer.

CAUTION Do not use sharp objects, such as tweezers or needle nose pliers, to remove
jams. Damage caused by sharp objects will not be covered by the warranty.

CAUTION Always pull jammed media in the direction it would travel through the paper path.
Do not forcefully pull jammed media against the direction of travel through the paper path to
avoid damage to the printer.


3

When you have removed the jammed media, replace the print cartridge, and close the print cartridge
door.

After clearing a media jam, you might need to turn the printer off then on again.

NOTE When you add new media, remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten
the stack of new media.

Hp2210 message ''press enter to align cartridges'',


from user manual::
To align newly installed print cartridges
1. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.
If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or print cartridge.
Contact HP Support. Go to www.hp.com/support. ....
2. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet print side down on the left front corner of the glass with the top of the page to the left.
3. Press the Scan button.
The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet

HP laserjet 3050 prints skewed vertically


250-sheet input tray (tray 1)
The input tray holds up to 250 pages of 80 g/m2 or 20 lb paper or fewer pages of heavier media
(25 mm (0.9 inch) or less stack height). Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed
facing down. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and rear media guides.
NOTE When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input
tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps to prevent multiple sheets of media
from feeding into the all-in-one, which can cause jams.

Hope this helps if not you may have a registration roller problem.

Printer won't stop jamming


sounds like your printer wants to form it's own three piece band(kidding here).

sounds like you rollers are dirty or have something on one or both of them..like tires on a slippery road, these need to be clean and dry.

>> Place the Test sheet staright on the scanner glass facing down towards right hand corner.
>>Press the scan button(color), the Power ON light will start flashing, wait until it stops flashing.
>>Alignmnet process completed.
