Question about HP DeskJet 712c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

1: the paper jams when it tries to print

When I try to print on my deskjet 712C, the paper gets a dent on the top and often crumples up in the printer. If it prints it starts in the middle of the page and the bottom is all smeared.

    my 712C HP will print at the very top edge of the paper and print to the middle before it pulls another paper to print over the top edge to the middle. How do I adjust the printing? Since this is an older printer (8 years old) will it not recognize MS Vista?

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 jamming in my Canon ix4000 After I pulled the crumpled paper out it continues to do the same thing. I don't know how to get at the jam area to free it


If your printer reports paper jam for any reason, you may need to go through the Clearing paper jam procedure for your printer to respond to the print command again. So follow the procedure below to do this.
Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.
1 Put off the printer and unplug it from its power source.
2 Open all the covers/shutters on the printer (usually you will find one in the front or top and one at the back of the printer).
3 (If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Now pull out the cartridge carefully and place it on safe surface. (Be careful not to place it where it may slide and fall. This could damage the cartridge)
4 Site the paper that has jammed and pull it out in the opposite direction of its movement. Do not pull in the direction it was coming out. (Pulling the paper in the opposite direction is important for the printer's mechanism. Printer must be off). Never pull out paper from a printer when the printer is powered on.
5 (If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Return the cartridge gently and press it firmly inside so that you here it snap inside.
6 Close all covers at the top, front or back.
7 Power on your printer and you should be able to print again.

My HP DeskJet 712c InkJet Printer's "ink light" won't stop blinking!! I have tried changing ink cardridges, checking for paper jams, unplugging and replugging cords and re-starting computer. None...


Hello.

Give this a try:

1. Power off your printer
2. Remove and reinsert the cartridges. You should hear a "click" when properly seated.
3. Power on printer.
4. If light is out, print a test page for realignment.

Note: Be certain that the tab is removed from the cartridges and you are using "genuine" HP cartridges.

Hope this helps.

My hp 712c printer prints only the pink band when I run a color test. I have replaced the original cartridge. Any ideas about the cause and solution.


The cause is either:
* clogged ink-jets not allowing yellow & blue ink to move from the ink-cartridge onto the paper;
* busted electronics inside the printer, causing the ink-jets to not "spray" at all.

Use the software to try a "print-head-cleaning" cycle.
If that fails to improve things, it's time to replace the printer.

Paper twisted while entering printer rollers and is jammed. How can I get it out?


Try to turn off the printer, open the compartment and check the roller. try to pull the paper and at the same time flip the roller in such a way that the paper will move out. If it is jammed and crumpled like what I exactly experienced earlier, remove the paper as fast as you can.

Turn on the printer, wait for the inkjet devices in a neutral position. Then insert the paper and start printing again. If it didn't work, try to hold the tip of the paper in horizontal manner while printing and make sure you remove the entire paper before the next page prints itself...
