Question about HP DeskJet 9800 InkJet Printer
Unit has been working flawlessly until yesterday. Paper tray is full, =cartridges are new. No paper Light comes on when I try to print. Have uninstalled and re-installed drivers to no avail. Is it worth fixing? CAN it be fixed (by me)? or should I trash it and look for another wide carriage unit?
These printers usually determine whether paper is loaded by using a simple sensor with a small plastic arm. The paper lifts the arm (or pushes it down, depending on the design) when it is put into the printer. Take the paper out and look for that plastic arm - if it's broken, or the spring that holds it in place has come loose, that's the culprit. If that's not the problem, then it's probably going to be something you can't fix yourself. In that case, replacement is usually cheaper than repair for most inkjet based printers.
