Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

HP Laserjet 4 Plus

I've had this printer trouble-free for years.  I recently had to move it because my floors were being sanded and polished.  When I went to use it the paper jams and when I open it at the back it is all "fanned up".  the printer message is of course "paper jam".  Any hints as to how to fix this?


Many thanks

Did you check to see if any foreign objects are in where the paper goes, I used to get that with my canon printer and I thought it was broken then I found a little rolled up hershey kiss wrapper down there when I put my hand in






check the instructions , check the computer to find the printer problems or to use HP tech support chat to find the problem becasue your printer is from HP good luck if it is defective or problem then replace new one for if under warrantly ok







Probably the wrong paper - try a different weight, less than the one that is jamming. And do not use a cheap paper, it is not worth it - it shoals off a lot of paper dust which will also cause a jam on your machine. (And make you sneeze!).






May be somthing is obstructing the paer sensor.

Download driver windows vista

There is no downloadable driver for the HP Laserjet 4 series of printers as they are built into Windows starting with Windows XP. The driver that you should select can be either the Laserjet 4 or 4 Plus as they are both the same printer. (What made the 4 into a 4 Plus was the addition of the Jet Direct card that allowed attachment to an Ethernet network.)

    My suspiction is there is a tab on the tray that triggers a switch telling the printer what type of tray has been inserted. Your old tray is likely different from the Plus 4 tray and the printer knows it.

    I have an HP laserjet 4 printer and suddenly it just turned off.

    If it won't turn on, the power supply is dead. Time to bury it, I'm sorry to say.
