Question about HP LaserJet 1200 Printer

1 Answer

HP Laserjet 1200 will not feed paper

My printer is becoming tempermental....at times it will print up to 90 pages without stopping. At other times it will stop between each page and the green light turns amber. I will then simply slide the clean paper back a few inches and then slide it forward to resume printing. Some times it will continue printing multiple pages, at other times I have to repeat the ''slide in -out'' sequence between each page.

Any suggestions?

Hp laserjet 4200 will print a 50 page paper path test, print an extra page and then jam.


The paper feed solenoid is sticking. There is a foam material that deteriates over time and becomes sticky. I remove what's left and put masking tape in its place.

My HP P2015DN only prints one page at a time. If I have a 5 page document, the first page prints and then I must print the go button for each page to print.


Is the paper feeding from the manual tray or tray 2. If you are printing from tray 2 and have this problem then it is likely that your driver or software is looking for different paper types than you have loaded in the printer. For example, if you have plain paper in tray 2 and your software wants to print on letterhead, then the printer will stop after each page and by pressing the button you are telling the printer that it is ok to print on different paper. If you have the paper in the manual feed tray (tray 1) then I would check to make sure you are telling the pirnter to print to tray 1 and not manual feed when you send a print job.

If I am not printing continuously, the printer does not print the first 5-6 printing jobs. When print job sent to the printer I get a blank page (printing job can be more than one page). After the blank...


Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below

Hp laserjet 1200 series printer with high pitch nose when in printing process. During this loud noise, the roller turns but the paper is not picked up therefore printing does not occur.


noise is caused by the toner cartridge and paper is not going trough because there is a plastic milar clse to the feed roller that is bent,find it and push it towards the inside of printer (is a black or dark brown plastic mylar)

HP laserjet 5000N - Paper jam under the cartridge every time try to print


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

HP LaserJet 5000n - Paper jam under the cartridge


Check the tray to make sure the paper stops are set right and that the printer is set for the correct size paper. Clean the feed rollers above the paper in the tray and if necessary, replace them.

Hp laserjet 1200 paper jam


Please Follow the instructions in an attempt to resolve the issue you are facing:

  • Turn off the printer and remove all paper from the paper tray & disconnect it from the computer.
  • With the printer off, check for any obstructions such as torn paper or foreign objects.
  • Turn on the printer (still disconnected from the computer) and check the lights / lcd screen.

Still getting the same error ? Go for Warranty or Service.

Else,

  • Place 20-30 sheets of paper in the printer, ensuring none of the paper is torn or creased.
  • Make sure that the paper is flush with the far right edge of paper tray, move the left edge paper guide over so that it touches the left side of the paper.
  • Try to feed paper manually (using the paper feed button).

If you still get the error let me know for further troubleshooting,

Dont vote till you find it is Helpful or FixYa.

Thanks,
Scott
