Question about HP LaserJet 3055 All-In-One Printer
Usually on these printers, when this happens, it's caused by a couple things:
1. there's a broken gear, or broken teeth on a gear.
2. The carraige can't sense it's home position ( more usual )
3. The ink overflow resevior has filled up and is spilling into the gear/carraige assm.
the first thing I would do is this:
when you open up the top of the printer ( with the power off ), above the metal carrage bar, you'll see what looks like a grey plastic strip. with a paper towel and some cleaning solution ( I suggest windex ), wipe that strip down, as it is probably covered with ink, and then try again. I would also try putting a drop or 2 of machine oil on the metal carraige bar to help it move smoothly.
if that doesn't work, then honestly there's not much you can do - HP stopped making replacement parts for inkjets about 5 years ago, and you could buy a new deskjet printer for what it would cost to attempt to fix this one.
