Question about HP LaserJet 1300n Printer

1 Answer

I have an HP1300n and have been using a custom database to print A6 labels for years using the manual feed tray. Recently it has decided to get stuck in portrait mode and whatever and wherever I change the page orientation nothing will turn it back. I have messed with the print script to no avail and gone back to an older version, also, with no luck. HELP?

What about A4. does it print fine on A4. if it does then paper path is clear , if it only Jams/stucks on portrait mode, what size or media u using. it could be HW fault- where the separtaion pad and paper pick up roller is worn out or it is simply setting issue on the printer drivers. Go to printer driver of the printer- printing preference and check setting from there

SOURCE: hp psc 1315 paper jam

Hi,



. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

Hi,
open the related word document.
select 1 line above the Text in question, press enter twice.
That way, the text will drop by 2 lines.
try a test page on this, alternatively try using a different label layout, until you get the desired result.

If you are good at mathematics, maybe you' ll see its better to buy a new, exactly the same printer. Take the price of four new cartridges and add the price of a new fuser. Now see if this price is lower than the price of a completely new printer with new cartridges and a new fuser (and all the other new parts). You' ll be suprised! (At least I was)

We have tried changing all the possible drives,
Did you mean drive rollers or drivers?
Since you are seeing the problem with multiple printers, I don't think the printers are at fault but rather the Windows driver for them - have you tried deleting that printer from the system and letting Windows 'find' it again?  If not, go to the printers and faxes folder of the control panel, delete any listing of this printer model, make sure the printer is on and connected, then reboot the system. This should force Win to reinstall the driver for this unit.
If that didn't help, cruise the HP website and look for discussions or tech notes regarding this printer. I'm fairly sure you aren't the only victims.

if you using office go to page setup and select the tray(s) that you want to use for the first page and other pages ( both must be the same ) unless you only want the first page as letter head and the rest on plain paper or something along those lines ?

Also if you go into the properties of the printer and go to advanced and then click on the printing defaults button and see if the options in there are the same or different to whats in printing preferences.

If they are set to tray 1 then it will default to tray 1

How can i avoid label sheets getting stuck in phaser 8560


1. Make sure you are feeding the labels from the bypass tray, not from the cassette.-
2. Make sure the labels are for Laser printers, not Inkjet printers.
3. Do not try and re-use a label sheet that only was half printed on.
4. When you put the labels in the bypass tray, set the paper type to labels...this slows down the print process so they won't get jammed.

My new hp 2035n printer give an error when i try to print. the error says: load paper to tray 1


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Inkjet printer
  • Labels
  1. 1

    Prepare your printer. Make sure the power is on and the drivers are installed correctly on your computer.

  2. 2

    Wait for printer to stop. Make sure your printer is idle or ready or waiting for paper to be loaded. Don't load labels when your printer is already printing or running an operation.

  3. 3

    Prepare your labels. Make sure they are all facing the same way and are right side up. The label side should be face up. Many labels have an up and a down as well, look for a "this side up" or "load this way" indicator. Or take a look at the print preview before you print and make sure your labels will be fed correctly.

  4. 4

    Find the correct paper tray. Some printers have manual feeds and automatic feeds. Refer to your manual to find out which one you should use for labels. If you are going to use the manual feed, follow the manual's instructions. However, most printers will use the automatic feed, so read on.

  5. 5

    Align the paper guide. This is a moveable piece on the paper tray. There should be markers for the width of your paper. Standard pages are 8.5 inches. Move the marker so your labels will fit.

  6. 6

    Load your labels. Place your labels in the tray so it touches the immoveable side of the paper guide. Slide the paper guide over to touch the other side if it is not already close. Do not bend the labels by pushing in too far.

  7. 7

    Find the paper thickness lever. Try looking under the door that lets you change the cartridges. Or search around on the back or side. Check your manual, too.

  8. 8

    Set your paper thickness level. Usually you'll use the standard size. However, your printer may need to use a thicker setting. Check your manual.

  9. 9

    Change your media type. In your printer settings, find the media type option. You can access settings by clicking properties or settings on the print dialog right before you print. Select "labels."

hello, sounds like there are many possible solutions for you machine, first with paper jamming, are labels going thru manual feed tray, or paper tray, it might be possible that mp feed roller needs cleaning or replacing. if paper tray, simple would be feed roller, clean or replace, if jams continue with normal paper from paper tray, the problem will be front door, i have yet to be able to repair paper jams when front door assembly fails. as far as colors, both drum and toner can cause this problem, if using 3rd party toner, this will also cause some color problems. sorry no real quick fix for this machine, i've tried.

You will need to use the manual feed slot which is above the paper tray.

The manual feed is meant for labels and envelopes

Paper jamming in printer. Pulling one side before the other causing it to jam... Brand new, bought Sunday


Answer:
Fixing a printer paper jam
When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.
1.Turn off the printer.
2.Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
3.Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
4.Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
5.Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issue and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair.
* To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.
Preventing a printer paper jam
As mentioned earlier it is inevitable that you will encounter at least one paper jam during the life of your printer. However, if you're encountering frequent paper jams following the below steps can help prevent paper jams from occurring.
•If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled.
•Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and/or the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams.
•Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what type of paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the types of paper compatible with your printer.
•Do not mix the types of paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the type of paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper.
•Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.

Printer Jam - when i put a sheet of Avery labels, printer jams


When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to www.avery.com and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.

Can't print labels


I found out that each time you print from the manual load tray, i.e. letters and labels, once you have the paper in the manual load tray press print and then press the demo button to start the manual feed. I hope this helps.

Can't print from the MP tray?


When you print labels or envelopes you need to select the correct tray from the print menu. (File print or ctrl P) or the printer will think the normal paper tray is being used.

You can force the printer to change the tray after the print has been sent by pressing the continue button on the printer, just make sure that the normal tray has no paper in it.
