Is the green light on my Office jet k5400 suppose to be blinking?


Hello,

the green light on your printer can be blinking, here are the causes:
  • The printer is either turning on or off.
  • The printer is processing a print job.
  • The printer is paused while the ink dries.
Just try to wait for a while, and it should be all right again.

Very very slow to print pdf files larger than 600KB It will print first page pause print next 2 pages really big pause and then the pattern continues


This is because pdf files are actually huge images rather than an empty white page with text and perhaps a small image. The only way to improve this is to add more memory to your printer. There is often a small cover on HP printers where you can add memory, the downside, it is usually expensive.

I have seen this problem before. Basically what is happening is the fuser is losing it's heat. When the printer pauses it is waiting for the fuser to get back up to temperature. The first course of action would be to reinstall the print drivers. This will rule out the communication aspect. Then to replace the Fusing assembly (fuser) and if that doesn't work to replace the Power supply.

If it is the power supply it wouldn't be worth the time or money to repair the printer based on the original cost of the machine.

My HP Laserjet 3050 frequently pauses when I try to print something like a PDF image. Other times, it just won't print it.


A PDF file is a "complicated" document, containing lots of "put some text starting at (X,Y) using font Z at W pixels high".

So, the software inside the printer takes some time for the printer's CPU to "compose" a complete page.

Pause is set in your computer, you have to go to control panel, printers, and then right click on the printer icon for the printer you are using. Pause is about the third choice down and you need to un-check it and that takes it off of pause.

Officejet pro K5400 won't print pdf files


If these are web-based PDF's this may well be your problem. There are code anomalies printing directly from a web page if it's a PDF-based file (on many HP models).

If this is directly from an Adobe PDF (non-web based) then you may need to update or reinstall the print drivers. Also, Adobe Acrobat versions vary on how well they will send print commands to various devices. Try to make sure you have a higher version of Adobe than 6.

Slow Printing


it may just be a slow printer head, maybe an upgrade is in order. look on the box for page printing speed.
it may also be that you have the resolution set too high for basic printing. try turning this down slightly.

hope this helps.

Will not print test page or documents


  • Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
  • While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
  • Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
  • Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
  • Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
  • To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
  • To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

Pause/printer rest between pages


Hi nurse_boop (Lainey), You can try changing some of the printer settings. Assuming you're using Windows, go to Start, Printers and Faxes, and right click on your printer, choose Properties: 1. Make sure that you disable printer pooling; 2. Check/tick, print directly to the printer; 3. Check/tick, Printer is Always Available. Please keep in mind that large file sizes, images and deep colors adds to the slowdown and pauses of printers. Hardware wise, large documents requires more memory both on the printer server PC and the printer itself. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
