Question about HP Photosmart 8050 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

HP Photosmart 8050 printer won't load paper.

Everytime I use the printer I get a message that I need to load paper although there is paper in the feeder. I've been told that it can be either dust in the printer or the rollers need to be replaced. I'm willing to take the printer apart, but only if those are the only possiblities. i just want to know if this is a common problem with this printer.

    yes,

    my printer continues to say load paper, or printer out of paper and I've tied 1- to -100 sheets and have no success. I've also blown out the area and made sure the feed wheel was not stuck or something and though I hate to assume, I'm guessing the micro switch is not sending the correct signal.

    Help, not even gone through one ink cartridge yet and I thought I finally got past the disposable printer stage callcal

    printer only loads paper intermittantly, makes no difference if it is 8.5x11 or in 4x6 cartridge. Sometimes it detects it sometimes not - help

Hello SuperVicky, rollers on the printer do not go that often on the other hand the usage of the printer is a factor ie how much printing you do or age if old. Normally paper roller should allow you print quite a few thousands before wearing out. what i will advise is to look keenly in the printer shuold in case you have any particules in the paper path of the printer or after paper jam it is possible to have a residue left in the printer. all these can be a problem.

Hi there it doesn't sound like a common problem to me it's not worth repairing it because it'll cost you double what it's worth brand new buy another one inkjet printers are cheap sorry but unfortunately that's the only solution. sourcing parts for printers can be very difficult and expensive too

I have an HP 8050 and it says out of paper and it is not out of paper


In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer......

Good Luck!!!!!

Hp photosmart 8050 won`t print black even though it says it full


Hi there! If you haven`t used the printer in 2-3 months the black ink cartridge has gona dry.Wich means the printer is seeing full ink but the ink isn`t actually coming out from the ink head.Take a peace of clean cloth or cotton and clear the bottom part of the ink head(be verry carfully while cleaning it cuz you may dmg the head.If that doesn`t help just go and buy a new ink cartridge and it will solve your problem.

Hi,

Unplug the Printer and Disconnect it from the Power Supply. Then Turn it Back ON, after few minutes say 30 minutes, that would fix the Problem.

If Problem Persists, Check the Machine Once again to make sure that you do not have any Paper Jam.

Refer the Manual to Clear Paper jam, if any. If you do not have the Manual, Revert to me and i would be glad to Offer you the Manual.

In fact, Check Below Link to Clear Paper Jam :-

Now,

If there is No Paper and still the Message is there, more likely, the sensor has gone bad and needs replacement.

If under Warranty, get it replaced without any Charge unless Hp would charge you more than half the amount to get this Fixed. Still not a Bad idea to call and have a Quote and if the amount is too high, do not shy of asking for exchange in lieu of this. They could Offer you a Nice Discount as Christmas is already here :)


Note - Also Try to remove the Cartridges and again Re-Seated them Properly.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have an HP Photosmart 8050 printer that gives me a paper jam message after each print job


Hi,
i,d suggest that the paper sensor is faulty.
try unplugging your printer, and setting it back up.
alternatively, hold down the paper-jam button if it,s flashing.
