Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

HP Laserjet 4Mplus won't print doc & says: PC Load Letter

I have a simple WORD document of 2 pages to print but the printer won't do the job. Other docs give no problems but this one doesn't print. The printer display gives a blinking 'PC' and after that a non-blinking 'Load Letter'. My computer tells me in the printer menu under Status: "Letter/Char is not loaded in any of the trays" (note: this is a translation out of Dutch) Or it comes with the signal "Papertray is empty" which surely isn't so.
I wrote the doc in New Times Roman and because it wouldn't print changed that later in COURIER but that didn't help.
Has anyone any idea what is the matter?

Thanks
Peter, The Netherlands

HP Laser Jet 4 Plus + PC Load Legal


PC Load Legal means that the printer has been sent a print job formatted for legal size paper and that is not what is currently loaded into the printer's input tray. So, either change the paper to legal or cancel the job in the printer, reconfigure the document on the computer for letter (or whatever is loaded into your printer), and send the job again.

My hp laserjet 3005 does has paper loaded in try 2 but always prompts me to load tray 1 to print. I would like the printer to print from tray 2 when it's loaded and try 1 is not loaded. Thank you.


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This is a common problem. The device can be set to print from tray 1 if it is loaded, or to print only from tray 1 if the type of media selected is other than standard bond.
Pull out tray 2 and make sure the paper size adjustments are properly set to match your size of paper. If you are using std bond and the adjustments are set to A-4 it won't pull paper.

Printer wont print. It keeps saying PC Load Legal. The printer has paper in it.


Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.

More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.

If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.

HP Laserjet 5000dn


if you using office go to page setup and select the tray(s) that you want to use for the first page and other pages ( both must be the same ) unless you only want the first page as letter head and the rest on plain paper or something along those lines ?

Also if you go into the properties of the printer and go to advanced and then click on the printing defaults button and see if the options in there are the same or different to whats in printing preferences.

If they are set to tray 1 then it will default to tray 1

HP Laser 2200 Cannot print one page or a range from a document


Dear,
I think the problem is in the printer setting, so just uninstall the Printer(Driver). Restart the PC and reinstall the driver.
It may solve your problem.

I HAVE LASERJET 4 PLUS. WHEN I GIVE JOB FOR PRINTING THE PRINTER DISPLAYS A MESSAGE AS PC LOAD LEGAL. PLS HELP ME IN SOLVING THE PROBLEM


The document you're trying to print is formatted for legal size paper, and the tray contains only letter size. if it's a legal size, put legal paper into the MP tray, or override the setting and manually select "letter size" in the printer dialog box.

HP laserjet 5L prints only 2/3 to 3/4 of the page of a 1 page doc


which bit is usually missing?

If it only prints the 1st 3/4 ish of the page then it could either be the page slipping a bit due to poor pick up rollers or much more likely it could be that you are sending a large file to the printer and the printer does not have enough memory.

Try printing in draft or scale down the res/size of the file you are printing

HP LaserJet 9040mfp All-In-One... Problem


You first need to run a configuratin page from the infromation menu on the printer. It will tell you what size and type paper the printer thinks is in tray 2. If that does not match what is actually in the tray (size) then you may have a issue with the paper size switches on the right inside cavity of the paper tray. If the switches, there is a samll pca board behind the black cover with the 3 metal springs. That board is the same for both trays 2 and 3 so you could switch the boards to see if that is the issue. It could also be as simple as the paper tray bar not aligned correctly and the easy way is to switch trays 2 and 3 and see what happens. The type setting which is inputed at the printer if not matching the job will cause the paper to not be drawn unless that type is asked for. Example if someone changed the type to preprinted and you do not ask for preprinted it will never draw from that tray. Hope this helps.

If tray 2 & 3 have same size/type, will pull paper from 3 until empty. Make sure that the tray selection (or paper type) in the printer driver or software application is set correctly. (The printer driver and software application settings override the printer control panel settings.)
