We have a laserjet 2420dn which prints fine from Tray 1 but constantly jams when printing from Tray 2. It only prints OK from tray 2 when there is ONE sheet in the tray. I changed the pickup roller in...


In addition to the pickup roller, the separation pad in the tray should also be replaced. This pad keeps more than one sheet from feeding at a time. When we do maintenance on a printer we always replace both to stop this from happening. The part number you want is RM1-1298-000. It is used in quite a few different HP printers.

Becouse the tray configured in the printer is tray #1 so it serching the paper on tray 1 first you can set it the default tray by the menu on top of the printer.

I want duplex printing for hp 2420


The only way to duplex print on a standard 2420 is to print the first page, then take that page and re-insert it into the paper tray face up. Then print page 2 onto the back of page 1. If you want to automatically duplex print then you need a 2420DN printer which has the duplexing paper path as well as the formatter board with the duplex firmware.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Hp laserjet must manually push button to print


Hi,

Please print a configuration page from the control panel of the printer
- Menu > Information menu > print configuration.
- Check for paper handling details.
Following setting should reflect.
Tray 1: Any size / Any Type
Tray 2: A4 size / Plain Type

If the above settings are not reflecting in the configuration page, please change accordingly by browsing on the control panel of the printer to:
Paper Handling Menu >
Tray 1 Size: Any
Tray 1 Type: Any
Tray 2 Size: A4
Tray 2 Type: Plain

Let me know if that helps to solve the issue.

Regards,
Nikhil.

Hp 2420 vrtical line in page


Hello,

This issue can be due to fuser. I am sure you have changed the toner cartridge.
To confirm its a fuser issue, please perform the following:
1. Try printing a configuration page from tray 1, pull the top cover, as soon as the media is 60-70% inside the printer.
This would stop the paper before reaching the fusing assy.
2. Remove the paper and check if the line exist.
If exists, fuser is not faulty.
If it does not, then transfer roller, laser/scanner assy is faulty

- If fuser is faulty, perform the cleaning page as following
1. go to configure device > print quality > create/process cleaning page
perform cleaning page 5-6 times, however, if the line is due to fuser, then fuser needs to be changed.

Let me know the next update.

- Nikhil
