Question about HP LaserJet 4L Printer

1 Answer

Laserjet 4L - all lights on

I can print one job - my jobs are 1 - 4 pages long. It will not print two jobs in a row. I have to disconnect the machine and wait 5 minutes.

All four lights come on and stay on. If I depress the blue bar the ready light and the error stay on. When I relaease the blue bar all four lights come on.

I have looked in every opening of the printer but I don't see a jam.

I have a back up cartridge but it acts the same with both.

Any ideas?

Windows XP Home

Thanks,

John

I had this problem at work. We went from a PCL 6 driver to a Universal PCL 5 driver and it worked fine printing multiple pages. And has ever since. I would check your driver first and see if it can be updated. If so, update it and try again. If not or updating doesn't work, try a different driver, especially if you are using a PCL 6 on a 32-bit or an XP machine. Best of luck to you.

Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below

The image drum is not getting the correct signal at the correct time. It is time to retire the 4L and replace it with a newer, faster LaserJet. You'll be glad you did.

I can't find a power switch at all. How do I turn it off?


Sorry, no power switch! To remove power you need to remove the power cord. I know...dumb, huh?

If you have not been to this page it gives info on the Front Panel button and the Status lights.

You will also note on this page that when doing a cold reset you must unplug the power cord and reconnect.

HP laserjet 4L wont print from computer


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
