    could be a consumable issue? can you try the cartridge in another printer?

  • Anthony Lam May 11, 2010

    did you remove completely the paper and checked the paper path to see if tere isn't another piece of paper in printer ie 1 page in fuser other page in paper cassette? When you removed the paper jam did you accidentally dislocated the paper sensor flag?

How to print a configuration page from an HP LaserJet P1102w


freginold_0.jpg

The HP LaserJet Professional P1102w is a compact wireless desktop printer. It is very easy to set up and use. Unlike larger HP printers, the P1102w does not even have a true operation panel; it only has a power button, a cancel button, and a wireless button.

However, like just about every other HP printer, the P1102w has the ability to print out a configuration page that displays many of the printer's settings and statistics. This page is called the self test / device configuration page, and on it you can find the printer's page count, number of paper jams (broken down by section), amount of available memory, network settings, and more.

To print the device configuration page, make sure the printer is on and ready. The green light on the top left side of the printer should be lit. If the red light is lit or flashing, then there is a problem with the printer -- such as no toner or a paper jam -- and you won't be able to print the configuration page until the problem is rectified. You'll also need to have at least one sheet of paper loaded into the paper tray. Make sure the two side fences and the rear fence are snug against the paper to prevent misfeeding.

Press and hold the cancel button (the button with the red X on it) for about four seconds. The printer will warm up and begin making noise, and the green light will start to flash -- when these two things happen, you can release the cancel button. The printer will print out the configuration page, face down, and once it has finished the green light will stop flashing and the printer will quiet down.

Our new-to-us Hewlett Packard Laser Jet 4 Plus is mission an owner's manual. After a paper jam, we removed the paper, but don't know how to reset it. any advice? thanks mthubers@netnitco.net


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Hp laser jet 1320 stop printing


Try unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in. Check to make sure that there are no paper jams or foreign objects stuck in the rollers. Reseat the toner and make sure the lid is firmly closed.

HP Laser Jet 1320. Orange light next to triangle symbol keeps flashing. This began after a paper jam. I cleared the paper jam but can not get the light to stop and so it wont print. I have shut it off...


The Amber light is designated as the "Ink Error" light. With regards to a Hewlett Packard printer, the Amber light is indicating that one of the Ink Cartridges (Tri-Color/Black) is empty, defective, unrecognizable, or just simply needs to be changed. The procedure is; lift up the front cover, look at the Black Ink Cartridge, and examine the Ink Level Window on the Cartridge, located at the center of the Cartridge. If the square window appears to be a solid Green then that means the cartridge is completely full. If it is Half Green/Half Black then it is indicating that the cartridge is half way full, and if the square window is completely Black, then the cartridge is completely empty. Also, remove and examine the Tri-Color Cartridge. If the Tri-Color Cartridge feels very light or if the Tri Colors on the bottom of the Cartridge appear to be discolored i.e. All Magenta, All Cyan, or All Yellow, then the Cartridge should immediately be changed. After replacing the Black or Tri-Color Cartridge, your printers Green Power Light will flash and allow you to continue your print job
You can also try:
Clean the cartridge and carriage contacts with a cotton swab moistened with water. If you have refilled the cartridges don't assume that they will still work. If cleaning doesn't help you may have a failed cartridge even if it is not refilled.
If you are getting a grinding noise, clean the carriage rod with alcohol and lubricate it with a few drops of Tri-Flow, available in 2 oz. squeeze bottles at cycle shops.

Hp 845c orange light keeps flashing


When the orange light is flashing, either paper jam or ink problem is happening.Try unloaging & reloading the stack of paper in the main tray. Remove & reinsert ink cartridges in the printer. You may also clean the contacts of the cartridge and inside the product.
