Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

We have a hp deskjet f4140 printer that had a paper jam. My wife pulled the paper out of it, and it is acting crazy now. It told me that it was low on black ink, so I replaced the cartridge with a new hp cartridge and it won't print/scan to align the new cartridge. all teh lights under 'attention' are flashing. I've disconnected the power supply to see if it would reset, but no luck...what's next?

Does the carriage move and home out when you power up the printer? If not, look inside the cavity where the carriage assembly is and look for a skinny little piece of plastic, it should be anchored on either side of the printer frame with a small spring on one side. it should go thru the carridge assy. This is the encoder strip. The carriage uses it for reference when it moves. If this strip has been knocked out of position the machine almost immediately signals an error, (attention light flashes). If this is the case, then the challenge is to A-find the spring and B-reattach the encoder strip. Good luck.

My printer HP Deskjet 1051 says there is a paper jam but no paper jam present


Use a flashlight to examine as much of the paper path as you can see. There may be a shred of paper left over from an earlier jam. There might be some foreign object such as a paper clip stuck inside.

My hp deskjet f4140 keeps showing a paper jam and won't print the page I need, there isn't a paper jam.


There is probably a problem with the position of the cartridge carriage. Try reinstalling the cartridge and make sure that the carriage is in the center of the cartridge access area and the center of the cartridge assembly bar. If it is not try moving the cartridge assembly in either direction and restore the printer for printing. Note any sounds as the cartridge attempts to go to its home position. Any grinding noise may indicate that the position of the cartridge needs to be adjusted. Be patient and adjust the cartridge position again until no grinding sounds are heard. It may help to unplug the printer for 30 seconds between adjustments. Good Luck!
