Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blank pages


Alex_Garton:

I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus printers, but I'm going to hazard a guess. If the paper does not move at all, the paper pickup feed mechanism is at fault. One of two methods is used to pick up the sheet. Either the front lower portion of the tray is lifted up to force the top sheet into the feed roller, or the feed roller is connected to a drop-swivel to drop the feed roller onto the top sheet of paper. You'll need to look carefully at the feed mechanism to determine if a gear or clutch is failing. If the paper moves into the machine about 1/2 inch and then stops, either the first paper feed roller past the pickup roller may be at fault. Also check to see if the paper sensor between the paper pickup roller and the first feed roller is working properly.

I've got a 4L that has been an absolute workhorse and it makes a grinding noise here recently and will not print. I hate to replace it as the cartridge lasts about 10 years. I know its about 15 years...


The grinding noise is caused by a cracked motor gear. This is a very common issue on the Laserjet 4L and 4P units. It is a fairly easy repair but you will need to disassemble the printer to get to the drive motor. The gear is available here:

After turning on printer, prints initial "blank" sheet


You can fix this by turning off bidirectional support:

- Right click your printer, select properties
- go to the ports tab, uncheck Enable bidirectional support.

Your printer has to be turned on before printing.

That fixed the extra page printing S1M problem for me.

Hp laserjet 1200 series printer with high pitch nose when in printing process. During this loud noise, the roller turns but the paper is not picked up therefore printing does not occur.


noise is caused by the toner cartridge and paper is not going trough because there is a plastic milar clse to the feed roller that is bent,find it and push it towards the inside of printer (is a black or dark brown plastic mylar)

Papaer will not feed


High ITConsult And MarkoP

The high pitched whine and the paper stopping just before the fuser (the hot) unit is a known issue on the C3000 and C4100. If you are still searching for the solution to this issue, let me know, as I now have a working fix for the problem.

HP LaserJet 1100


Does it only whine when it paper is passing through it? Does it whine before the paper is fed in and after it's ejected? If so, could possible be the fuser unit. If it only whines when paper is passing through, it may be the paper passing between a worn-out feed roller and separator pad, which are high-mortality items on this model. Can you supply any more details?
