Question about HP LaserJet 5L Printer

1 Answer

HP 5L printer Paper advance

The 5L does not grab the paper sheet when starting to print. It seems that everything else is functional and wants to print. Could it be dirty rollers? Up to this time it's been a bullet-proof printer. It was serviced/rebuilt about three years ago.

    This seemingly cured the problem. FYI... there are repair parts available on ebay- just type in "HP 5L'>

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.

Paper feed problem


this is the rare case: there could be two problem 1) either some bit of paper would have been stucked inside the printer 2) or else the roller is not smooth. the roller inside the printer helps to draw out the paper gently.

Paper feed jams


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Paper feed and printing problem


Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others, it seems to reset the sensors or something.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through!! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now.
hope it works, let me know, Garty

Hp LaserJet 1100: Runs louder than normal and continuously, BUT will not grab paper and print


Fred shine a flashlight down the paper feed throat and see if the feer roller is rotating when the printer tries to print.
I have had to replace many of the feed rolls and separation pads in this series of printer.
the tires get dirty or worn and feed multiple sheets or none at all. check for obstructions as well-sometimes the black mylar sheet which sits in front of the feed roll gets in the way of the paper path and has to be pushed in place. I have also seen paper pieces stuck next to the paper path switch which is visible after removing the toner cartridge. hope this helps.

Printer crunching paper


either it's a paper stuck under roller, or along that side of the raceway, or the roller on that side is dirty, and can't grab the paper well.

Laserjet 5L Hangs on Single Sheet Input Jobs


This probably means that the document you printed is set to manual and the printer is waiting for input

try this:
print the document, when the data light is on, press the button on the printer, does it print? if yes go into word and under page setup set the printer to "Auto select" for the paper tray.

or remove paper, print, when the data light comes on, insert the paper into the single sheet tray

hope this helps
thanks for rating

My MP510 grabs way to many sheets of paper.


hi i am a Canon certified repair tech for this printer. it seems that your problem is due to a broken sheet feeder unit. what i ahve seem with some new machines is that a plastic shaft that controls ther seperation of the pages breaks. most of these problems occurs with new machine because they are shipped from place to place. if the unit is under a year old it is still under warrenty and can be brought to or shipped to a repair center. even if its not under warrenty any longer you should still call Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and complain that it has been doing it since you bought it and they will locate the nearest repair center to your location for you. hope this helps.
