    The problem is trying to print a configuration-test sheet from the printer without any PC connection by holding the "Green" button down for a couple of seconds. The paper that comes out is 100% black! You may be right about the drum unit. Will replace it next.

    The problem is not related to a driver; it is an internal printer problem and the solution provided does not address an internal printer solution.
    But tks. anyway. Any help is much appreciated.

Hi Larry , Here are a couple of soultions that may correct the problem.

1.Color mode is not selected in your program or printer driver.Select color mode instead of grayscale.
2.The correct printer driver is not slected in the program . slect right printer driver.
3.The printer is not properly configured.Check the configuration page by printing a configuration page.If no color appears on the config page replace the drum unit.

    First of all the steps I provided above where to see or start with a solution. And if you don't think the drum unit is an internal printer problem then maybe you need to buy the book for dummies 101 troubleshooting printers!

Using only HP products color doesn't print

There are two ways to print black (grayscale) only. One is through the printer access provided through HP software. The other is through the Windows printer software. Try accessing through MS, such as printing from office or paint and see what the printer options show. Then try it again through another program, such as PDF Adobe, or another program that brings up the HP printer software. Another option is going through the device/printers option in control panel. Good luck.

Have hp 1500l printer which will only print a full black page from any source. no lights showing. it appears to be a four color black. any help would be appreciated

If it's less than a year old, return it.
The (fuse going to, or) the high voltage power supply board has gone in it.
If it's not under warranty, a brand new 1606 color laser can be had right off HPs website for $149 right now (a little more than you pay for a toner).
If you really love this printer though, I can probably source out a HV controller board.

Hi everybody, I have got a canon Pixma MP 130 printer and the problem is error 6000. during printing process the printer broke down and did strange nose! Can someone help me? Would be more than happy to...

Hi, I had the same problem and went searching - all the feedback suggested that something may be stuck of blocking the paper path. Took the tray out, checked underneath etc - and yes - the problem was a couple of sheets of paper stuck inside. Was able to retrieve these by accessing them from the rear of the printer - and when plugged back in it started up OK!

I believe the cause here was that a print job was sent to the printer while it was also being used to copy stuff - though i cant be sure of this. Either way, it was a blockage that cased the problem.

Error code [6000] or light blinking 3 times.
1. Smearing or scratches on the LF encoder. Please clean the LF encoder.
2. Foreign material or paper debris in the LF drive. Please remove any foreign materials if encounter.
3. Check cable connection.
4. Replace LF encoder or Logic Board

Thanks for using fixya...

Perhaps drum exposed to sunlight too long. It will ruin drum.
Could be foreign material inside drum or printer.
Run heavy stock through printer with nothing on page, to do this-
Open up Word. type a period, or a comma.
Print 10-20 copies.
This may clear it up.

HP Laserjet 1300 yellow light STILL flashing

Re-installing the print driver will not solve a flashing light. If the printer is functionally ok, it will come to ready simply by plugging into the wall. It sounds to me like a fatal error at this point.....could be a long list of things, but I would lean towards a formatter board. bottom line with this printer at this point in it's life is, if it doesn't work, it's not worth fixing. Replaceable for about $100.

HP Laserjet 1500 Color, Print out Blank

Hi devi960:
Pages print, but all
colors do not print or
the pages are
completely blank.
One of the print cartridges might be
low or empty.
Run an engine test and see if all four colors print. If
not all colors print, replace one or more of the print cartridges. If the
engine test is successful, replace the formatter.
If the printed pages are completely
blank, the file might have blank
Check the file to make sure that it does not contain blank pages.
A print cartridge might be low or
Check the printer control panel for a Supplies Status message,
print a Supplies Status page, or use the embedded Web server
(HP color LaserJet 2500 series printers only) to see the levels
remaining in the print cartridges. Replace any print cartridges that
are low or empty. Messages are not created for non-HP print
If you are using non-HP print
cartridges, one or more print
cartridges are low or empty. The
control panel lights do not indicate
low or empty for non-HP print
Replace one or more of the print cartridges.
Font DIMM might be selected but the
font DIMM is not physically installed in
the printer. (This issue applies only to
HP color LaserJet 2500 series
printers using an Asian-language font
In the settings for this printer, clear the Font DIMM check box on
the Configure tab if no font DIMM is installed in the printer. Select
the Font DIMM check box only if the font DIMM is physically
installed in the printer. If you think that the font DIMM is installed,
make sure that it is installed correctly.
The paper curls when
exiting the top output
The paper needs to print to the
straight-through paper path.
Open the rear output door to print to the straight-through paper
path. Remove each sheet as it exits the printer.
The stack was slightly curled when it
was placed in the tray.
Turn the stack over in the tray.
The paper does not meet
See the user guide for information about print-media specifications.
If you are printing on light media, the
Type setting might not be correct.
Select Light in the Type is field in the printer driver.
