Question about HP LaserJet 4mv Printer

1 Answer

I can only print by manually feeding in each page -HP 4MV Printer

I have a HP LaserJet 4MV printer. Although it's an old printer, I really haven't used it very much over the years. About a year ago, it stopped printing automatically using paper from the tray. The paper is loaded correctly in the tray, but each time I try to print from the tray, it registers a "Jam". There really is no jam, but it "thinks" there's a jam. I've examined the tray, removed it, replaced it over and over, but the problem persists. I've removed part of the paper from the tray and even replaced the paper, but it doesn't help. Automatic printing from the tray just doesn't work anymore. Now the only way I can print is by manually feeding pages one at a time. Obviously, this is quite inconventient. Is there some kind of "sensor" in the tray? If so, where is it? Do you have any idea why my printer is registering a "jam" when there is no paper jam? The paper doesn't even move in the tray at all.

You could remove the fuser, turn the machine off, and wait an hour. It may reset the error. However, if the error still persists, it will be a parts replacement of the fuser, low voltage power supply, or the DC controller. 90% it is the fuser. Good luck.

The feed rollers need to be replaced. The squeak is the worn rollers sliding over the edge of the paper.

My hp 4mv is still printing but smells hot and there is a little smoke with it. Any thought? I'm a bit scared to use it.

Hello, the HP4MV is quite an older printer. it is possible, that if the printer has never been professional cleaned, that dust will accumulate inside the printer and settle on the power supply and cause overheating and the burning smell. The proper method for cleaning laser printers is to remove all of the covers and use an ESD (Electrostatic Shielded Device) rated vacuum to remove all of the accumulated toner and debris. the use of compreesed air is NOT recommended. I would advise to have the printer cleaned and it should good for many years to come.

All printed are black all page

Is the printer installed locally or on network?
You may start by checking if the installed driver is correct.
