SOURCE: printer won't print

I've had this 6110xi all-in-one for a few years now. Everytime I have the "no-printing" issue I need to unplug the printer, and leave it unplugged overnight. The problem magically goes away in the morning.

I've installed the printer on a separate computer while it was having a "no-printing" episode and still couldn't print there either. So it sounds like there's something funky with the printer internal cache requiring a long power-down.

SOURCE: Printer won't print and resume light keeps flashing

I went through the HP troubleshooting and it started printing OK when I Stopped and Started the Print Spooling under Administration Services:

-START
-Control Panel
-Administrative Tools
-Services
-Scroll Down & Right Click on Print Spooler, Choose STOP, then OK (if needed)
-Right Click again, choose START, then OK (If needed)

After a few moments, it started right up for me and the Test Page I had in the que.

Hope this helps someone.

Please give me detail instructions, step by step because not very computer literate to solve printer problem. Flashing green "PC Load A4" causing printer not to print. Thanks CK


What this means is that the print job you sent to the printer is formatted for and designated as being ready for printing on A4-sized paper, which is a European size that is 210 millimeters wide by 297 millimeters tall. This is close to what Americans will refer to as letter size as that standard is 8.5 inches by 11 inches while A4 is 8.27 by 11.7. If you have standard letter-size paper loaded into the printer and you want to print on such paper, then you need to go into whatever program you are using to write the document (for example, Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, etc.) and set the option in the Print... dialog window to print on Letter rather than A4. You also need to cancel the print job currently in the printer. This is done by holding the Shift key on the top of the printer and pressing the button that says "Reset" underneath it in purplish-red. This will flush the memory of the printer and make it ready for the next print job. As it's been a few years since I last worked on one of these printers, I cannot remember if you also need to hit the Online button first (so that it is offline, indicated by the light being turned off on said button) before you can reset the printer but if so, then just hit that button, reset the printer, and then hit the Online button again to bring it online.

This should take care of the problem for you. If you have any other questions about this issue or other concerns about your Laserjet 4 series printer, feel free to drop me an email. You can find me at Best Deal Computers as I am the owner. :-)

HP C7280 wont print custom size card stock 7.25 x10.25 wont feed or paper jam, however will print when fed on the left side but no guide to keep paper straight. how to correct this issue, Ive cleaned


Your question does not provide all the information necessary to absolutely resolve the issue. By now I suspect you've already resolved the issue or given up. Perhaps someone can use this info.

Need to know: Operating System (Windows 95/98/Vista/XP/7/8), Application (Word, Paint, Firefox, etc), type of job (jpg, pdf, text, etc.)

There is no short answer possible; but, I may be able to help with a generic answer. I can't help on Apple but I suspect it's the same as Windows, (and Unix, Linux, OS2, etc.).

Provided the Printer works proper on normal 8 ½ x 11 stock (print media) then it is not a printer or Queue issue unless it is just confused. As a printer technician I have seen this resolved by rebooting the machine(s) and trying to print again. If that doesn't resolve the issue you need to know:

The application you send the print job from tells the Queue what stock (letter, legal, card, envelope etc) to expect. The Queue, a component of all versions of Windows, is created when the printer is initially installed on the computer. The Queue holds print jobs and then sends them on to the printer when the printer tells the Queue it is ready. Some applications are more robust allowing more options than others. However, printing from inside a browser is frequently sketchy. If you're printing from an application that is different from the one that created it you may face an issue of the printer not getting the correct stock information.

Very Important: First before you attempt to send the print job check the settings in the app to insure your job has the right paper stock selected. Then, as you prepare to send the job from the app to the Queue before you hit the final "Print" button, check the "Paper Source/Size/Media" boxes in the "Printer Properties" to make sure your sending the right stock information. If that doesn't fix it; try to save your project in a format readable by another application and try to print it from the other app.

Note: 1. Print jobs are served to the printer by the Queue one at a time on a FIFO (First In First Out) basis. Sometimes print jobs get hung up in the Queue. A hung print job will block all subsequent jobs until the hung job is cleared. When a print job is sent and nothing happens (no printer activity or error messages on the screen.) look in the System Tray for a printer icon. Open it up and see if there are any jobs hung. If so cancel them and start afresh. This may require a reboot.
2. Print Queues can (rarely) become corrupt and must be deleted and rebuilt.

There are still variables too numerous to mention.

How do you do a print test showing number of pages printed on an HP LaserJet 1022 printer?


Hi,

Press the Go button until the green light starts flashing and the motor starts. The configuration page prints.

Go button is next to the Cancel Button ( X )

Downloaded driver from HP. connected printer via


HP Support says “If the Ready light is blinking, and the Go light is on, it indicates Data in the printer memory is waiting to be printed. Pressing the GO button prints from Tray 1 or from another tray if Tray 1 is empty and the paper size is supported in the other Tray. Pressing the JOB CANCEL button cancels the current job and the printer returns to ready.
Make sure the paper size is correctly defined.

Need confirmation of fax sent and received


You can setup the printer to print a confirmation page on send. Push the setup button - then push right arrow until you see print report and press okay - press right arrow until you see fax confirmation and press ok - push right until it says on send and press ok. Hit cancel to go back to default and now you will get a confirmation for all sent faxes.

Print Problem Go Light Flashing wont print till pushed


Sounds like its waiting for a manual feed. Check the paper you have in the tray and that the selectors on the tray are properly positioned. Once that os done, on the computer side hit the start ICON on your desktop, then control panel, then printers and faxes. Double click on your 2100 print driver to open it. Go into properties and make sure it says "automatic" for tray select. Hit the advanced key and check that it says letter or whatever paper size you have in the tray.

Verify the other settings and then save it.

That should solve your issue.

Printer won't print


Printer doesn't print, just feeds the label.
Check your Labels and Ribbon, ensure you have the right ones.
If you have the right ones, here's what you try.

Hit the "setup/exit" button once. Then hit the "+" button repeatedly until you get to Print Meth. It will say Thermal Transfer. That setting can be changed by hitting the select button and the + button. Change it to Direct Thermal Transfer. Then use the setup/exit button to Temporary save the changes. You can change it back to Thermal Transfer doing the same method.
You will get an error, because the ribbon is in. But you can see it it prints.

Try going to the manufacturer website and read the manual about the printer.
If the printer feeds ribbon and doesn't print, more then likely it's a print head problem. When I mean it doesn't print, I mean from the printer control panel without the computer connected.
If you cannot figure out how to print the internal print fonts or setup from the Zebra 4m+ printer, you again need to go to the manufacturers website and read the manual.

Did a little research, appears that I can get a rebuilt print head for about $400. Instructions to install should be with the print head, if not reverse engineering.

Green light is flashing and printer will not print. It has paper and a new toner cartridge.


try putting a piece of paper in the tray 1 (Bypass) and then pressing the green button hopefully it should print. If it does then you have sent a print job to the bypass and not the tray. If you press the green button and it prints form the tray check what media type you have set within the print driver.

Hope these work for you
Thanks J
