Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

My old laserjet 4+ has become tired and I have to pull the paper out manually. I plugged in another similar machine but this one will only print the first page continuously under DOS and will not stop. It prints fine under windows. Any clues please?

Hello,

The Laserjet 4+ that you have to pull the paper out needs a preventative maintenance roller kit. The rubber output rollers get hard and will not grab the paper and advance it thru the printer. The kits include all of the pickup rollers and the output rollers. We sell the kits for $25.00 plus shipping and it includes a copy of the service manual.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

How do you manually feed legal paper into a HP laserjet 4 plus (model 2037A)? It only has a letter paper tray. I inherited it without a service manual


The LaserJet 4 plus I have worked with had a paper tray that was adjustable for letter or legal. If yours is not, there should be a door on the front of the printer that will pull down at the top, and is hinged on the bottom. Open the door, you will be able to extend the "paper tray" and put a small amount of legal sheets on it. Go to the menu and tell it to print to this paper tray, I believe it is paper tray one.

I have an HP Laserjet 4, quite old, and it has developed a very prominent streak almost straight down the middle of the page. Staples told me to clean the drum, but my manual doesn't even seem to mention...


Put paper in the manual feed tray. That's the pull down door in the front.
Print something. As the page gets fed 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the top cover. Pull out the toner. Look down at the paper. If you see the prominent streak, you probably have a bad toner cartridge. If the streak is not there, check the fuser. One of the rollers is bad.

While you have the toner in your hand, you should see a flap that is the entire length of the cartridge.
Put you thumb on the flap and pull it down. You will now be looking at the drum.
If you see the prominent streak, that's your problem. See if you can clean it with a soft lint free dry cloth. If the streak comes back, the rubber cleaning blade is probably bad. Replace the toner cartridge.

HP Laserjet 2015n printer


Sir, the Hp LaserJet 2015n printer CANNOT automatically do duplex printing since the printer does not include mechanism and paper storage areas to cycle the paper through the printer a second time and print on the reverse side. Manual duplex printing can be done as follows: Choose duplex printing and remove all sheets after the printing is complete. Turn the sheets over while preserving the orientation and insert them in the paper feed path. I have an HP 1020 laserjet printer which is similar to the 2015.

HP Laserjet 5L feeds multiple pages through at a time


It prob. needs an overhaul/reconditioning/cleaning to soften up or replace the rollers and rubber pads in the paper path. I imagine it needs this about every 5-6 years. Don't know if new parts are still available for this great old machine, but it's worth trying to keep it alive, at least until you change computers and don't have a parallel output port anymore ;^).

3055 sends to manual feed


Hi there
I've had a similar problem in windows instead of the mac, but it sounds like it's a 
similar problem where the computer's telling the printer to use a 
different sized paper to what the printer's been told is in the trays. For example, if, say, your document is set up for A4 sized paper, but the printer is set up to think it has Letter sized paper in the trays, it'll ask to have A4 sized paper installed in the tray instead.
 

Go into the system setup on the printer and select the paper setup menu.  

Select Tray 1 and choose the right paper type and size from the settings (After you choose the paper type you have to go all the way back through the menus on the printer and choose the paper size as well)

Hope this helps!

Proper Manual cleaning


 

 

Hi Gidget,

I typically use "Chux" wipes and a shop-vac to start with. The wipes wipe up and REALLY HOLD the toner & paper particles, holds 'em tighter than a Hobo does a ham sandwich...

 

(I'll concede to the 'by-the-book' crowd that a specific (read EXPEN$IVE) type of vacuum cleaner is recommended by HP & most other service org's. I've used my shop-vac for 12+ years and have serviced thousands of HP LJ's, CLJ's, AiO's, MFM's, DJ's, OJ's, etc. I have never lost a single printer because I didn't use the 'right' type of vacuum...)

 

The Chux wipes are available from PartsNow, LLC; www.partsnow.com/.

They also carry maint kits for almost every HP printer made as well as Lexmark, Canon, Xerox, etc.

 

I use Cooper's Platen Cleaner (PartsNow) to clean the rollers using 2" x 2" gauze squares and nitrile gloves. Fedron works well too. HP's website mentions isopropyl alcohol and water as their recommended solvents. Use waht works best for you.

 

Having some 6-inch long cotton tipped applicators (wooden handled single ended Q-Tips...) helps tremendously.

 

In conjunction with the correct service manual, (in your case,  Combined Service Manual for HP LaserJet 4L / ML & 4P / MPHP Publication Number C2005-90988, August 1993), a thorough cleaning is very easy for almost anyone to perform.

 

PartsNow and several other websites have HP Svc Man's online for free, Google around.

 

A legacy utility from HP that I've not yet tried can print and cycle cleaning sheets to clean mainly the fuser, but also claims to clean rollers as well. HP printer specialists will recognize 'cleaning sheets' from HP's newer models, built in to the menu structure. The utility will allow you to do the same for older (LJ 4, 5, & 6) printers. Find it at:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=125&prodSeriesId=25484&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25484&objectID=bpl03846

 

Another Combined Svc Man is available as well that covers:

HP LaserJet 4 / 4M
(C2001A / C2021A)
HP LaserJet 4 Plus / 4M Plus
(C2037A / C2039A)
HP LaserJet 5 / 5M / 5N
(C3916A / C3917A / C3952A)

HP Publication Number C3916-90984 (March 1996).

 

As far as Scheduled cleaning, the cleverly formatted (LOL) table below lists HP's recommended service intervals. Over the years, I've found that adhering to the schedule has reduced unplanned downtime by almost 80%!!

 

DESCRIPTION / QTY / EST. LIFE (pages) / REMARKS  
1.  Toner Cartridge / 1 / 6800 (note 1) / When print becomes faint, shake cartridge to distribute remaining toner.  


2.  MP (Tray 1) Pickup Roller Assembly / 1 / 200,000 / Replace roller and separation pad together.  


3.  PC (Tray 2) Pickup Roller / 1 / 200,000 / Look for glazing and cracks.  


4.  Separation Pad / 1 / 200,000 / Look for glazing and grooves. Replace together with Pickup Rollers.  


5.  Transfer Charging Roller / 1 / 200,000 / May affect print quality and/or paper jams.  


6.  Fuser Assembly (115 V, 50/60 Hz) / 1 / 200,000 / May affect print quality and/or paper jams. Look for marks on rollers.

  
6a. Fuser Assembly (220 V, 50 Hz) / 1 / 200,000  


7.  LC (Tray 3) Pickup Roller / 1 / 200,000 / Look for glazing and grooves. Replace the Separation Pad.  


8.  Exhaust Fan / 1 / 25,000 hrs. (I've only had to replace one in 12 yrs...) 


Note 1: The estimated Toner Cartridge life is based on A4 or letter size prints with an average of 5% toner coverage, and with the density setting at 3.  

 

Best of luck,

Foxfur
