Re: Printer error

Sounds like a gear or the belt has stripped. Really not worth repairing unless it is under warranty. Call HP for an exchange.

Hp laser jet all leds on and not working

The surge protector or UPS may not be allowing sufficient voltage through to the printer. HP printers do not have built in speakers of any kind. Because of this, they are not capable of making any beeping or squealing sounds. If any noises such as these are heard then the printer is probably connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) or a backup battery. To verify that the UPS is the source of the noise, plug the printer directly into a wall outlet bypassing the UPS.

The following are common symptoms:
  • High pitched squealing, beeping sounds, or alarms (UPS)
    NOTE: Noise over the phone line can also cause high-pitched squeals and beeping sounds.
  • Inexplicable or false error messages
  • Printer will not "wake up" from sleep mode
  • Printer appears to be DOA
  • Incorrect printout
  • Slower than normal printing
  • The printer control panel display is blank or shows garbled characters
  • Accessories, such as attached copier/scanners, do not function properly
  • Monitor loses power or shuts off
  • Computer reboots when job is printing
  • Job only prints half way, causing a paper jam

If it is necessary for the product to be connected to the above-mentioned devices, consider the following items:
  • There are many UPS configurations and load conditions that can affect proper printer operation. Depending on these configurations or load conditions, printer functionality cannot be predicted.
  • No damage to current HP LaserJet products will occur, but, depending on their particular UPS configuration, the printer may or may not operate properly.
  • Printing while on a UPS battery backup is not recommended because of the large power requirements of HP LaserJet products.
  • If the HP LaserJet printer is not operating properly and power line conditions are suspected, try a different circuit (a different wall plug located away from the current one), or try removing it from the UPS.

My HP 2175 PRINTER keeps giving me an error

Check the default paper settings in the printer sofware, if they are correct then problem may be internal.
You dont mention whether it prints OK though.

Constant whirring noise and won't print

I do have the same problem with my psc-2175. I opened it and recognized that the problem is with the scanner unit. There is a sonsor in this unit which locates the scanner lamp at the beginning point when you turn it on. When this sensor fail to function, the electric motor, which moves the scanner lamp will not recognize where to stop and it works without any stop. So it pulls lamp unit into its borders and make the noise you hear.
I wanted to let it repaired, but I found out that it will be very expensive and it is better to buy a new set. I have bought it in Iran 1600000Rls (170$), and the repair cost is almost 750000Rls (78$).
If you find another solution please let me know, my email is: and my name is Soroush Asarzadeh.
