Hp Deskject D2545-paper jams, and other stuff

Brand New printer. Setup O.K. and test print-cartridge alignment all O.K.
Printed a few pages, all O.K. Next day, constant printer jams but sheet not jammed. Printhead does not come to center when cover opened and no reason for jam to occur. Printerr is not suppose to function with cover open- it does. Followed all HP problem solving, no satisfactory results. Constant "no paper" blinking light with paper properly loaded. Printer pulls sheets through with 3 rapid jerks and pauses and three wrinkles on sheet. Suspect interface circuit board problem. Printer is useless as is. Reloaded all software, no fix. Have used HP DJ's for years, several different models---no problems. Conclusion is I have a piece of junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: documents are printing slanted on page

It sounds like need some technical maintenance and at that point you have two options.. take it to a service center, or buy another printer (or if whithin warranty talk to HP about your problem, your attempts to fix it and possibly get it replaced). sounds like a component inside your printer may be either not working properly or there's something inside keeping the rolling componentes from keeping the page straight as it goes through your printer.
It does not sound like a driver problem...
btw.. did you mean carriage jam or cartridge jam??
if it was carriage:
if it is a cartridge error try check the following:

HP A636 will not print yellow; tricolor cartridge is new

  • Align the print cartridge.
The printer automatically aligns the print cartridge after a new one is installed. You can also align the print cartridge at other times to ensure optimal print quality. Indications that you need to align the print cartridge manually include borderless prints with white space
along an edge, colors not printing satisfactorily, or poor print quality.

To align the print cartridge from the printer
  1. Load a sheet of HP Advanced Photo Paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  3. Touch Cartridge.
  4. Touch Align Cartridge and follow the prompts.

Clean the print cartridge automatically.
If the printed pages are missing lines or dots or contain ink streaks, the print cartridge might be low on ink or need to be cleaned.
CAUTION: Clean the print cartridge only when necessary.
Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.

  • Clean the cartridge.
Follow these steps to clean the cartridge automatically:
To clean the print cartridge from the printer,
  1. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  2. Touch Cartridge.
  3. Touch Clean Cartridge and follow the prompts.
If the documents are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, replace the print cartridge.

My hp officejet 7410 printer which has been working fine for a year suddenly will not print. after putting in new cartridges it printed out an alignment page. But still will not print a normal page. ...


Click on the Setup button,
Scroll till you find Tools - Press OK
Scroll till you find Clean Cartridge - Press OK

It will print an alignment sheet. Align the printer

If this does not work - try the Align Printer Option from Tools of Setup menu again from Printer front panel.

Let me know if none of these work.

Changed printer cartridge now wont scan printed sheet!Thanks,DV

Every time you put a new cartridge, the printer does a test page. That is because it is aligning your cartridge. Now what you need to do is take that test page and put it in your scanner as indicated on the test page. Then press "scan" on your printer. The printer should then do a scanner alignment and you should be able to scan. If you do not have that test page, print another one. Go to start, settings, find printers and faxes and open it. You will see your printer. Right click on the printer and you will see a menu. Open Properties. Find General- there is a "print test page" button. Click on it.

Not responding to PC instructions to print data


You need to load the PRINTED ALIGNMENT PAGE on the scanner glass, then press on "OK" button. It should start scanning the alignment page. That way, you are completing the PROCESS of ALIGNMENT.

Thank you so much.

Ink Cartridge Alignment

On alignment sheet, do you see a line of yellow blocks?
And on next line do you see alternate block and yellow blocks?

(Without these, alignment fails)

If not, change the colour cartridge, re-print the page and repeat alignment.

Good luck...
