Question about HP LaserJet 2550L Printer

Printer does not pull paper from supply tray 1

I am trying to print an printer status page and the printer will not pull paper from tray #1. I have a repair shop estimate saying the problem is the fuser assy needs to be replaced. This seems wrong since the paper pickup appears to be not working. This is a new printer to me - purchased at a garage sale so I am totally unfamiliar with this printer. Is there a troubleshooting or repair site I can go to?

Paper misfeeds after printing only one page


I can think of several solutions. None of them are too priceprohibitive.
The cheapest solution is to check your paper tray and make sure the setting are set for the correct paper size. Also make sure these settings are locked.
You can also try tro visually check and make sure there is no paper debris in the paper path. A pick Up roller kit can be purchased rather inexpensivley sounds like the roller from your tray 1 is not pulling correctly.
Alternativeley try programing the printer to pull from tray 2 or the bypass tray if you have that option.

Dell 966 aio printer....paper jam and I cannot release paper from roller. Is there a way to release roller?


Have you read the Manual on paper removal? It mentions a rear panel that can be removed. That might free up the rollers:
If the paper jam is near the paper input tray:
1. Remove the paper tray.
2. Pull firmly on the paper to remove it.
3. Replace the paper tray.
4. Press the Select button .
5. Resend your print job to print any missing pages.
If the paper jam is not visible:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Lift the printer unit.
3. Firmly grasp the paper, and gently pull it from the printer.
4. Close the printer unit.
5. Turn on the printer, and print the document again.
If the jam is located in the duplex unit or near the rear access door:
1. If you have a duplex unit, remove it.
2. Open the rear access door.
3. Firmly grasp the paper, and gently pull it from the printer.
4. Close the rear access door.
5. Re-install the duplex unit.
6. Press the Select button to continue printing.
If the paper jam occurs near the ADF:
1. Lift the ADF cover located to the left of the ADF input tray.
2. Firmly grasp the paper, and then gently pull it from the printer.
3. Close the ADF cover.
4. Press the Select button .
5. Resend your print job to print any missing pages.

When i m on printer inittilizeing sound came but but any one light on and like hang dont work again,some times paper error light ,some time toner error light,


Hi there,
You can test the printer by three ways,
1. Press and hold Green button for atleast 5 seconds it will take out the configuration printer, also the toner status page will come too
2. If the toner light is on , check the current toner status from the test prints taken before,
3. if the Error light is on, make sure there is no paper jaming in the printer, remove any paper stucked on the tray side, as well as check by removing the toner also
One thing more you can check the configuration for the Printer tray selected in the system,
Remove the Printer Drivers from the computer and try installing the software again, sometimes if you have selected manual tray feeding, or you have selected Tray 1 as default Tray and there is no page in the Tray 1 it will also, gives you the error on printer, 2nd thing you can check is the Paper size, both in computer and on tray 2 in printer, you take out a tray from the printer and adjust the nob to A4 . if you are using this printer on network, you have to reinstall the drivers for the printer, and it should give you the print,

If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post,
Thanks for contacting FixYA!
Regards-BA

My hp laserjet 3005 does has paper loaded in try 2 but always prompts me to load tray 1 to print. I would like the printer to print from tray 2 when it's loaded and try 1 is not loaded. Thank you.


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This is a common problem. The device can be set to print from tray 1 if it is loaded, or to print only from tray 1 if the type of media selected is other than standard bond.
Pull out tray 2 and make sure the paper size adjustments are properly set to match your size of paper. If you are using std bond and the adjustments are set to A-4 it won't pull paper.

Brother printer problem


Manual Feed Command.
1. Press the Job Cancel button to cancel the print job. Delete the print
job in the print queue on the computer. You can quickly access the print queue by double clicking the Printer icon in the task
tray or dock.

2. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.
Check that the front cover is closed.

3. Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button
until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

4. Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.

5. Press the GO button 8 times. The green Status LED will flash briefly
while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Status LED
will be lit green.

6. Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times. If
the Print Settings pages do not print and the Paper LED is on again skip
to the next section - No Paper in the Paper Cassette.

If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing
from your computer. The Paper Source of the Brother printer driver or
program you are printing from may be set to MP Tray or Manual, instead
of Auto Select, Tray 1, or Tray 2 (if the optional paper tray is
installed). To check the Paper Source setting of most programs, click
File and Page Setup or Page Layout. You may need to click the Paper
Source tab or Paper tab depending on your software application. Verify
that in the Paper Source section does not list MP Tray or Manual. Choose
Auto Select, or another relevant source such as Tray 1. Click OK. Try printing the document again.


No paper in the paper cassette.
1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

2. Insert the letter or legal size paper into the paper tray with the
top edge of the paper first and the print side down. Make sure that the
paper is flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. If using a
paper size other than letter or legal, the paper should be loaded in the
MP Tray. The MP Tray can print on paper from 2.75 in. by 4.57 in. up to8.5 in. by 16 in.

3. While pressing the blue paper-guide release lever, slide the paper
guides to fit the paper size. Make sure that the guides are firmly in
the slots. For legal size paper, press the lever located at the back of
the tray and pull out of the back of the open tray.

4. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer. Press the GO
button. If the alarm clears, no further troubleshooting is needed. If
the alarm continues, follow the steps below.


Paper Jam at Paper Pick-up.
1. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.

2. Remove the paper cassette from the printer.

3. Elevate the front of the printer slightly to locate the jammed
paper.

4. Gently remove the jammed paper.

5. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer.

6. Turn the printer power switch ON. If the alarm clears, no further
troubleshooting is needed.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

Tray output


You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!
