Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

Laser Jet 4 Plus

For some reason my printer isn't aligning the print correctly on the page. Print often begin on the edge of a standard letter size sheet of paper and at time drops off the right edge of the paper. How do I get the printer to print to center the print correctly? Within the Microsoft Word or other text document software the text is properly aligned and centered.

    Thanks for offering a solution. However the feed rails seem to be working properly...paper isn't misaligned. Its just that for some reason the printer isn't compressing the text within the margins.



    The margins on either side of the paper are only 1/4 inch or less (white space from edge to print) and its right at the edge that one or more letters on both sides get cut off.

Make sure your sheets are aligned and tucked in with the paper feed rails, otherwise, it will slightly veer off one of the sides.

Also, if you haven't replaced the paper feeder rollers, do so, one must be worn out more than the other, and this also prevents the sheets from going through straight.

Hope That Helps!

Code PC Load A4


This means that the printer is expecting A4 paper rather than letter size or whatever you are trying to use. Check your "Printer Options" on your computer and make sure that the appropriate paper size is selected. A4 is an international standard paper size that is 210 mm (8.27 inches) x 297 mm (11.7 inches) and therefore is just a bit narrower and longer than the American "letter" paper size.

To correct this, cancel the print job currently in the printer's memory, change the computer to the proper paper size, and send the print job again.

HP Laser Jet 4 Plus + PC Load Legal


PC Load Legal means that the printer has been sent a print job formatted for legal size paper and that is not what is currently loaded into the printer's input tray. So, either change the paper to legal or cancel the job in the printer, reconfigure the document on the computer for letter (or whatever is loaded into your printer), and send the job again.

Hp laser jet 4 plus prints only half the page then black pages then the other half with cryptic writing on pages over text


What I would do, is go out the www.hp.com/#support.
Download the latest drivers.
Install them and start printing again.
If it fails again, print a config page. If that prints correctly, that tells you that the printer is working correctly. Problem is with the interface. If you are using the parallel interface, try a different cable.
If you are using the jet direct try a different one and a different cable.
Could also be a bad formatter.
Good luck

We are using 8 1/2 x 11 letter size paper. When we print, the top of page is cut off. How do we correct the alignment?


Have you checked the top margin setting of your print job. It should be less than 1/4 inch. If set higher it may cut off the top of the page, before it's sent to the printer. The printer will not print anything within 1/4 inch of the edge of the page, by design.

Printer wont print. It keeps saying PC Load Legal. The printer has paper in it.


Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.

More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.

If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.

Lexmark t642 load mp feeder with letter


The reason that your printer is asking you to load paper into the MPF is that it doesn't think it has that size paper in tray 1 or 2. Make sure that the green paper guide in the paper tray that you want to print from is latched in the correct position. This guide tells the printer what size paper is in the tray. If you have it even slightly out of position you'll get this message.

My hp laserjet 4 plus printer cannot print excel files


wherer are you printing this, A4 is european, north america would use letter, etc..
if you go to control panel, open the printers and faxes folder, right click the printer in question, a window will pop up, click on properties.. a new window should open. click on "Printing Defaults" or "Printing Preferences" then click on "Advanced" ( I believe it should be to the lower left) that will open another window, in paper size make it Letter if your in N America, A4 for Euro.. this will set the deafult print..
Click ok, then print a test page from the general tab..

The reason you getting this LOAD LETTER message. your excel page setup is set to print to letter, your machine is set to print top A4

If you open Excel then go to Print then a window should pop up where you select the printer you want to use, click on Properties, then Lay out, then Advanced, and input the correct paper size before you print.

does this happen with all excels files, or one particular?
Create a new Excel file, and try printing it.. possibly could be in that particular file. I have seen this happen alott particulary with PDF files.. Where the incorrect paper size is in the file..

Emulex NetJet Print Server Problem


The standard port settings used when setting up a Printer Port is Port 9100 (TCP) when normally communicating with the Jet direct / LaserJet 4 plus printer.

However when using the Emulex Card it s default is Port 2501 (UDP). So within XP change the Port setting to 2501 and it then will communicate correctly.

Printing on Stationary with an HP Laser Jet 1320


Most printers and copiers are made for the standard 20# paper, if using a different paper then most of the time you need to specify what type ie: transparency, labels, lbs etc. so the machine can accommodate itself. ( lowering or increasing the heat in the fusing section, and pressure on the paper.)

for that machine everything is done through the pc. go to File, Print, right click on the printer, go to properties got to device settings, General, printing preferences and paper quality, there is a box there for paper options. try setting it to cardstock.
