HP LaserJet 4L quit working It's connected to my PC and it's on. All 4 lights are on; 2 green and 2 orange. When I try to print, the paper goes through but nothing is printed on the paper.


Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

Paper got stuck in my HP Laserjet 4L. I didn't pull the paper out straight but finally got all of the paper out. However, now each sheet of paper gets stuck like the first when I try to print. Does anyone...


Remove the tonner and reinstall it, check the papers parth with a torch as the tiny bit of paper will cause a jam. Check for obstructions.

HP 4L printer indicates no paper when the tray has


When you removed the paper jam, was the paper torn? If so, did you ensure that you found all the pieces. (Put the piece of paper back together like a puzzle to verify). There could be a piece of paper stuck in the printer that is causing the paper sensor to fail.
The other possibility is that when you removed the paper jam, something became dislodged in the printer. Forcefully removing paper from the printer can cause this.

Have a hp laserjet 4l paper jam problem.No paper is jamed inside.Press the reset button,goes through its cycle process. See the D shape roller sensor working,but no paper is being pick-up.Hear a funny...


I have had a similar problem. The 4L has an inherent fault in the motor drive gear. It is made of nylon and has probably developed a hair line crack. As a result the gear slips when the printer starts up and tries to feed paper. I have replaced this part some years ago by replacing the whole motor and gear. I did find the replacement parts on eBay today. Here's the url:

The manual is also on line at another place. But when you order the parts you get a manual on CD. I am not the guy selling the parts but need them too that's how I found them.

Good luck.
