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.

Service manual hp 9800


I have an HP 9800 Deskjet that I print heavier self stick vinyl paper. The print comes out wavy. Lines aren't strait and images get blurred. Seems like the rollers might be worn causing it not to pull paper in right and centered.

Hi, I am looking for a print head for my HP deskjet 9800. C8165Al. SNTRC0405. Do you know where I can such apart? Also is the print head the same as the print head carriage assembly?


I think the print heads are built into the ink cartridge on this model. Try calibrating the printer, if this does not work you can replace the cartridge presenting the issue, or take it out and leave wet paper towel over the printheads, sometimes this unclogs them

Hp deskjet D4155...Both power and arrow lights are blinking and I have tryed turning it off and un-plugging the printer multiple times, Every time is comes on, they both are still blinking. Please help....


Please remove the ink cartridges, unplug the power cord. You may also remove the paper from the paper tray. Now, try inserting the cartridge as well.. after about 20 seconds, plug in the power..

put in the paper, and ensure that you have inserted the paper properly. Then insert the ink cartridge. This should resolve the problem.
But if the light is still blinking , try by replacing the ink cartridge.

HP Deskjet 690C says it is out of paper when it isn't.


Pretty well all printers come with two places to load paper: one paper tray and one feed tray.

Is the button on your computer or the setting in your word processor teling it to load from the other tray?

Paper light on


Unplug the printer, open the lid, make sure there is nothing jammed in the feeder. Then take the paper out of the feed tray, straighten it out again, and then re insert it into the paper tray and power up. I have the same printer and this has happened to me several times before. If that doesn't work, chat with HP tech support for this series printer @ http://h50203.www5.hp.com/hpisweb/customer/HPInstantsupport.aspx?&cc=us&lang=en

Out of paper light flashes even after paper is loaded


Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.

Hp 845c orange light keeps flashing


When the orange light is flashing, either paper jam or ink problem is happening.Try unloaging & reloading the stack of paper in the main tray. Remove & reinsert ink cartridges in the printer. You may also clean the contacts of the cartridge and inside the product.
