Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

HP 5MP Laserjet. All the indicator lights come on except the ready (#1) light is off. Sometimes it prints with no problems. It can enter the described condition from "idle" or while printing. When entering from Idle. the feed motor motor runs briefly as the printer enters the error state. Turning the printer off for at least 15 minutes resets the error condition.

5P/5MP only prints to back tray now.


Face the printer. Lightly put a finger on the rollers at the back of the printer where the paper exits the printer while you are printing. If they arn't turning that's why the jams. A tech will probably have to look at it. That is the "face down delivery assembly"

If manual feed mode is not wanted, change the setting from the printer properties. See the User Guide for information about changing printer properties. OR Take one of the following actions:
  • The page being printed might be too complex for the printer memory capacity. To continue printing, press and release the GO button. The printer might print a partial page, or the quality might be lower than normal.
  • Lower the resolution. See the User Guide for information about understanding print quality settings and changing print quality settings.
  • Add more memory. See the User Guide for information about installing DIMMs (HP LaserJet 1300 series only).

  5. Check that the left side panel is completely closed. If the left side panel is completely closed, open the left side panel and push the door sensor. Occassionally, if the left side panel appears closed, the sensor will still remain in the open position, generating this error. Pushing the sensor will shut the door tight, returning the printer to the normal mode.

What do symbols on top mean?


Welcome to Fixya

Half circle symbol means printer is in ready state. The printer control panel is comprised of six lights and two buttons. The lights produce patterns that identify the printer status.

1 Jam light: Indicates that there is a jam in the printer.
2 Toner light: When the print cartridge is low, the Toner light illuminates. When the print cartridge is out of the printer,
the Toner light blinks.
3 Paper out light: Indicates that the printer is out of paper.
4 Attention light: Indicates that the print-cartridge door is open or other errors exist.
5 Ready light: Indicates that the printer is ready to print.
6 Go button and light: Initiates action or indicates status.
7 Cancel button: To cancel the print job that is currently printing, press the Cancel button.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Printer Problem-Not printing at all.


Hello,

Half circle = ready to print (when light is on )

! mark in a triangle = Attention light : Indicates printer media input tray is empty, print cartridge door is open, print cartridge is missing, or other errors. See Printer information pages for more information.
( light on means that there's an error )
piled circles = toner indicator (light on means toner ("ink") is low, needs replacement)

There's a help page for these light indicators, just in case other lights are / come on, see:

Downloaded driver from HP. connected printer via


HP Support says “If the Ready light is blinking, and the Go light is on, it indicates Data in the printer memory is waiting to be printed. Pressing the GO button prints from Tray 1 or from another tray if Tray 1 is empty and the paper size is supported in the other Tray. Pressing the JOB CANCEL button cancels the current job and the printer returns to ready.
Make sure the paper size is correctly defined.

As to your question, here are the brief descriptions of the 2 lights and 2 buttons...from top to bottom:

1 Attention light: Indicates printer media input tray is empty, print cartridge door is open, print
cartridge is missing, or other errors.
2 Ready light: Indicates that the printer is ready to print.
3 Go button and light: To print a demo page or to continue printing while in manual feed mode,
press and release the Go button. To print a configuration page, press and hold the Go button
for 5 seconds.
4 Cancel Job button: When the printer is processing data, press the Cancel Job button to
cancel the print job.

Also, see if powering down the printer and unplugging it from the wall outlet for several minutes clears the repeating of the print job.
