Question about HP DeskJet 1200c InkJet Printer

Open Question

HP Deskjet 1200C

The Check Paper light comes on after it goes through the warm up cycle and starts the feeding process. I have taken apart the printer and checked the paper prox switch, it seems to be clean and mechanically funtioning.

The paper will go through and stop at the point where its ready for printing but the check paper light comes on everything stops.

Anyone seem this before?

It may be the rollers that grab the paper and pull them into the tray, over time they start wearing down and losing their grip, kind of like a car tire. There are rejuvinator pads available that will give the rollers a little big of their grip back but I don't know how effective they are because I've never used one.

SOURCE: paper feed problems hp PSC 1510

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Yes, there is a sensor on the right side of the carriage that points down at the paper, you use a Q-tip moist with water and wipe the underside of this sensor, you may need a couple since quite a bit of ink sprays onto this sensor.

SOURCE: HP Deskjet 1200c will not feed paper. Fails to

Hello,

This sounds like a problem with the paper pick up rollers. I would suggest cleaning the rollers with a little isopropyl alcohol. Please make sure the machine is turned off when doing the cleaning. Let the rollers dry for a few minutes. If this does not work, The rollers would probably have to be replaced.

HP deskjet 920 c crooked feed


there should be a rear panel to remove and check to see if there is any small peices of paper caught in the rollers or obstructing one side, if not the grip on the the roller is worn or the paper aligning bar is open too wide and allowing the paper to tilt. This is a more common problem with shiny surfaced paper, so try a more matt rougher quality paper.

HP deskjet 3845 will not feed paper to print. Is the green light suppose to blink? Not sure where paper needs to go to get proper feed


Paper goes in the bottom tray. Take a small stack and place it in the bottom tray and push it in until it stops. It will feed out of this tray, print it and output it to the top tray.

Hp deskjet constantly says out of paper. As far


Each printer has a sensor that determines when there is no paper, on cheaper printers like deskjets it tries to feed the paper and when it fials it gives this error. The feeder for the printer is most likley bad, replcaement is the most cost effective solution , repairing it would be more then a new unit.
