Question about HP LaserJet 1012 Printer

1 Answer

Printer won't advance next piece of paper

When I print, the printer won't grab the paper from the sheet feeder. It clicks three or four times and then the error light appears. If I wiggle the paper while it's trying to print, then I can usually get it to accept the paper.

Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:


1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Grabs too many pieces of paper when printing.


Try this approach:
Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Then close the printer cover.
Rebrick the printer by pulling out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. This will reset the printer.
When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges.
Load some paper.
Try to print again to verify that the feeder is properly working now.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance.

There could be something blocking the paper path. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder. Make sure there are foreign objects or debris that could cause this problem.

Canon ip1800 is experiencing paper jam.whener tries to print, cannot feed the paper properly


Sometimes a printer just needs some cleaning.

Remove the jammed paper following the procedure below. (1) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the Paper Output Slot, whichever is easier.If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, turn the printer off, open the Front Cover, and remove it. Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer. After removing all paper, close the Front Cover and turn it back on.If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the printer off and turn it back on. The paper will be ejected automatically. (2) Reload the paper in the printer, and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer. If you turned off the printer in step 1, all print jobs in queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.
Make sure to clean the paper feed rollers if paper is not fed properly. Cleaning the Paper Feed Roller of the Auto Sheet Feeder consumes it, so perform this only when necessary. 1. Make sure that the printer is turned on, and then remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder. 2. Open the Printer Properties dialog box. 3. Click the Maintenance tab and then Roller Cleaning. 4. Confirm the message, and then click OK.The Paper Feed Rollers will rotate as they clean. 5. When the message appears, load three or more sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the left. 6. Confirm the displayed message and click OK.The paper that is loaded in the printer will feed through the printer and be ejected. 7. When the confirmation message is displayed, click OK. If this procedure does not solve the problem, clean the surface of the roller with applying a slightly moisten cotton swab with water to wipe off dust or stain.
If the problem still persists, contact a Canon service representative.

check the printer's printing preferences on properties option.should be set to normal then check the printer rollers if its dirty where the papers pass thru, if the problem persists load only 1 paper every time you print for the printer not to grab more papers.i think it is in the feeder and the sensor maybe its dirty need to be cleaned up.

Information on how to use rear feed


1. Prepare your doc/file for printing.
2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated.
3. Change printer setup to feed from rear.
4. Print.

Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."

Not feeding


Have you still getting the problem, have you done cleaning of Cartridge, its nozzle and Contact strip.. then cleaning of Printer roller or carriage rack.. Do a Service of it or get it done by Technician.

Also check the feeder tray.. to grab paper one by one by printer.. Manually

Take all updates for printer and OS.

Dell 1600n Will only print with sheet feeder open


Rollers may be worn out and not properly grabbing paper or a gear may be broken. You should be able to inspect by lifting cover to feeder and watching as paper is pulled through.
