Question about HP Photosmart 7450 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Photosmart 7450 immediately either jams or light turns red.

The printer will VERY OCCASIONALLY print a page or two, but now, when I turn it on, the light turns green, then almost immediately red. Prior to this, almost every time I tried to print I would get a paper jam halfway through the feed in the front.

Thanks very much.

    Thank you for the very rapid response. Much appreciated. I am afraid that my printer is beyond simple solutions, though, darn it! Maybe I can get Santa Claus to bring me a new one. like this model very much andI want to get another Photosmart 7450 and it's not being made anymore!

My hp Photosmart 7450 printer was working, then in the middle of printing it stopped and there is an error message on my computer, the green light is blinking on printer but won't print


First things first... try connecting your printer to another pc or laptop and try printing... make sure spooling is on in the driver and there are no other programs running...

if issue reappears then

It sounds like your printer cartridges are the issue

I would try reinstalling them...

if that does not work then

I would try cleaning your printer cartridge...

Gather cleaning supplies:
Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available.
Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material (coffee filters work well).
Remove both cartridges.
Unplug the printer.
Lightly moisten the lint-free cleaning material with clean water.
Clean the cartridge contacts. Avoid touching the nozzles. Replace the cleaning material if it gets dirty.

If that does not work then I would try ordering some new cartridges

Hi. When you open the top cover, there is a guide at the bottom to set. Move paper to right hand side as far as posible en set guide. But it's not one of their greatest inventions.

Printer won't print. Flashing red light. No paper jam and ink cartridges are ok. Please help!!


Per the manual, it's 99.9 % one of these causing the issue. The other .1 % should take it back or get a new one.

The printer requires attention. Try the following:
● If the printer is connected to a computer, check the computer screen for
instructions. If the printer is not connected to a computer, check for the following
problems:
– Top cover open
– Out of paper
– Paper jam
– Print carriage jammed or stuck
– Print cartridge inserted incorrectly
– Incorrect print cartridge installed
● If you are unable to solve the problem by using the instructions above, turn off the
printer and unplug the printer's power cord. Wait one minute, then plug it in again.
Turn on the printer.

HP Photosmart 7450 stuck cartridge


not a solution, my paper feeds past the point where printer5.gif would normally begin. Then flashing light changes from green to red and print operation stops. Printer cartridge1.gif appears to be stuck in far right area of cartridge track.

Replaced drivers as above and still have the same problem.
Mine started after I had replaced the color cartridge. Mailed the old one to HP already so can't put in old cartridge.

If I unplug printer from computer, I get same results. Does the driver software install in the printer?

Problem with HP 7450 and "Paper Jam"


hi, mezz

try this

There are 2 different types of flashing patterns with those two lights on the printer.
***
Resume light and power light BLINKING ALTERNATELY
Problem: Paper is jammed in the printer.
***
Resume blinking SIMULTANEOUSLY with power light

Problem:
The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

Solution:
1. Open the top of the printer.
2. Remove anything that is blocking the carriage path.
3. Turn the printer off.
4. Turn the printer on.

Problem:
There is something wrong with the printer. (I didn't write it, I am pulling this from actual HP tech documents, so don't blame me on this one) :)
Solution:
Turn the printer off.
Turn the printer on.
If the printer will not turn off, unplug the power cable from the electrical outlet or wall outlet.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
Plug the power cord to the back of the printer.

Paper jam light is on


Hi! I have the same issue. The only solution I still use: select print from document with no paper in the hp's feeder. Let the printer go on "paper out" message, now put the paper into the feeder and press the print button on the printer. Success!
