May be a problem with the toner cartridge. Try changing first.

When I print either a word doc or excel I get nothing printed but only garbled language as 1 line sentence on the paper: Something like this: AQKM!SEU!QAGEQSOUECU=AUUOAQKM!SEU!SESOMUUIOO=711AQKM!


Is it printing like that only on Word and Excel? If not you better uninstall the printer driver and reinstall again.. sometimes installed drivers get mess up specialy if we have done some updates or installation in other software.

Thanks

HP 5L Squeals as paper is feeding and by the appearance it looks like a roller is turning intermittently. The result is a grey page or small black lines of toner printed on the page


with the age of this printer it may be easier to replace it, by looking on ebay or at a local printer dealer, with the same model. im sure the cost will be minimal and you will have a parts machine for other issues that may arise.

Hi, if I am printing a form, my 5L printer cannot print the full pages, it runs into two or more pages.What needs adjustment? thank you


The issue could either be in your general printer setup (adjust the scaling % in the printer options) or in the application you are printing (adjust the page setup scaling % or it may possibly have the option to print 1 page high x 1 page wide).

HP LaserJet 5L wont do anything


First of all, I wouldn't spend 10 cents on this printer at this point, but is there a toner cartridge installed? It could be empty, and it's probably not going to print very well after all this time anyway. Try giving it a few shakes side to side to loosen any toner that may be inside, if that doesn't get it going, then pick up a new laser printer for $70-$100 (basically the price of a replacement toner cartridge)

HP laserjet 5L prints only 2/3 to 3/4 of the page of a 1 page doc


which bit is usually missing?

If it only prints the 1st 3/4 ish of the page then it could either be the page slipping a bit due to poor pick up rollers or much more likely it could be that you are sending a large file to the printer and the printer does not have enough memory.

Try printing in draft or scale down the res/size of the file you are printing

Parts are no longer available. You might be able to clean the feed roller by removing the toner cartridge and cleaning the gray roller with isoprpyl alcohone.

HP Laserjet 5L feeds multiple pages through at a time


It prob. needs an overhaul/reconditioning/cleaning to soften up or replace the rollers and rubber pads in the paper path. I imagine it needs this about every 5-6 years. Don't know if new parts are still available for this great old machine, but it's worth trying to keep it alive, at least until you change computers and don't have a parallel output port anymore ;^).
