Flashing yellow light. paper does not load.


It's trying to say that the page you are trying to print is too complex.If you press the button to cintinue it may print out part of the page. Check the printer driver for print resolution settings. Change it to 300dpi and try again. Or, you could always add some extra memory to the printer. If you decide to add extra memeory, don't forget to tell the print driver it has more memory

HP LaserJet 5L wont do anything


First of all, I wouldn't spend 10 cents on this printer at this point, but is there a toner cartridge installed? It could be empty, and it's probably not going to print very well after all this time anyway. Try giving it a few shakes side to side to loosen any toner that may be inside, if that doesn't get it going, then pick up a new laser printer for $70-$100 (basically the price of a replacement toner cartridge)

HP laserjet 5L prints only 2/3 to 3/4 of the page of a 1 page doc


which bit is usually missing?

If it only prints the 1st 3/4 ish of the page then it could either be the page slipping a bit due to poor pick up rollers or much more likely it could be that you are sending a large file to the printer and the printer does not have enough memory.

Try printing in draft or scale down the res/size of the file you are printing

HP Laserjet 5L feeds multiple pages through at a time


It prob. needs an overhaul/reconditioning/cleaning to soften up or replace the rollers and rubber pads in the paper path. I imagine it needs this about every 5-6 years. Don't know if new parts are still available for this great old machine, but it's worth trying to keep it alive, at least until you change computers and don't have a parallel output port anymore ;^).

Laserjet 5L Hangs on Single Sheet Input Jobs


This probably means that the document you printed is set to manual and the printer is waiting for input

try this:
print the document, when the data light is on, press the button on the printer, does it print? if yes go into word and under page setup set the printer to "Auto select" for the paper tray.

or remove paper, print, when the data light comes on, insert the paper into the single sheet tray

hope this helps
thanks for rating
