HP 1300 randomly printing pages with tiny smiley faces and square

My HP 1300 will randomly pull a piece of paper through and print a smiley face or a small square in the top left-hand corner of the paper. It does it when I log onto my computer and every few minutes. It seems like the problem started when another printer was added to my computer.

Try reinstalling your drivers. The computer may be confused with two different sets because of your second printer. If that doesn't work, and you have another computer available, hook the printer up to that one and install the drivers and see if the problem persists. If it does, then I really don't know what you can do, because that means the problem is in the printer's internal control and would be very hard to fix. If it doesn't persist on the second computer, then you know it's the first computer that's causing it. If nothing else works, try running a scan for viruses and spyware because they too could be interfering with your printer drivers. The computer actually does communicate with the printer even when you're not printing anything. It basically checks to make sure it's still there and waits for a response back with the printer status, etc. Some other program (whether wanted or unwanted) could be interfering.

HP 1300 -- toner is smudged along the left edge after crinkly sound


Hi:

This is a common problem with some HP printers. The fuser sleeve inside the fuser assembly gets torn along the edge and print can no longer be fused in that area and the paper will crinkle there. The only solution would be to replace the fuser, which for that printer it would not be worth repairing.

Hello, I have problem with Printer Kyocera FS-1300.. when i connect it to pc, it starts to print some symbols, like smiley face on left corner of page, and i cant stop it, when i disconnnect my device...


Hi. I would suggest that you unplug the printer, reinstall software and check you computer for viruses. If i continues, try letting it print out. maybe someone set so that 30 pages with a smiley would be printed next time you plugged it in. I how this will fix you problem.

WILL FEED PLAIN WHITE PAPER BUT WILL NOT FEED PHOTO PAPER


Follow the steps:
•1
Turn on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Auto Sheet Feeder indicator light turns on.
•2
Pull up on the paper sheet feeder on the top and back of the printer and slide out the paper support.
•3
Take a stack of no more than 10 pieces of photo paper and flatten the corners, if they are curled. Curled corners may cause jams within the printer.
•4
Place the paper in the paper sheet feeder with the printable side of the paper facing up. The printable side of photo paper is the shiny or whiter side of the paper.
•5
Print your documents as needed.

Paper Cassette :

•1
Switch on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Cassette indicator light turns on.
•2
Pull on the cassette on the bottom of the printer to slide it out of the printer.
•3
Flatten the corners of a stack of no more than 10 sheets of photo paper if the corners are curled. The paper may become jammed in the printer if the corners are curled.
•4
Place the stack of paper in the cassette so the paper is touching the right side and the printing side of the paper is facing down. Adjust the plastic paper guides so they touch the paper. The paper stack guides help facilitate the paper moving into the printer.
•5
Slide the cassette back into the bottom of the printer. The printer is ready for printing.

My printer will not print from my lap top. Printer will let me copy, but not print from the computer. Someone suggested that I uninstall and then reinstall program, but I cannot locate the disk. Anyone...


If it worked fine and it indicates a ppaper jam, open the top of the printer and check the left and right corner where the rollers are to make sure their is not a piece from a corner of a sheet. A small piece of paper will give paper jam.

Unplug the printer, replug back in. It should work. If not, open the back to make sure their is not a sheet sutck there by accident. thanks

Error LED blinking after paper jam, won't print


I have a similar but different model B4300. Several others, & I have found that a small piece of paper 1/2 square may lodge under a plastic guide, holding open a switch. This is very difficult to notice if you don't know where to look.
Open top lid
Remove the ink cartridge/roller drum as a single unit.
Look in the printer at the metal roller in front.
A Plastic strip on top & in front of the roller covers 2 square holes which should look dark. On your LEFT, as you face the unit, there is a small magnetic switch, to the LEFT of the LEFT square hole, under the plastic.
In my case, the paper was seen as white in the hole, and extended under the switch. I was able to grasp it with a small medical forceps, next to the switch. By gently twisting, I pulled it out without taking the unit apart.
The printer then worked perfectly after the paper under the switch was removed.
