Printer jams up, no matter how much paper is in it. It pulls toward the right side. I haven't used it in quite awhile. I need it to work. What can I do?


Hah, yeah I remember having that too when I first got my printer and I thought my printer was broken but it's actually something really simple. Right next to the slot where the paper goes in there's a little thing that you can move. Try moving it so it just touches the side of the paper. It's basically indended for if you want to use different formats of paper but the standard size isn't set to A4.
I hope I explained that clearly enough, if you don't know what exactly I mean let me know and I'll try explaining it better.

I want to use photo paper to print photos and the printer tells me I do not have the correct paper


When you give a print command (ctrl + P) You have the possibility to select the Print Properties. If you press that button, there has to be somewhere a possibility to select the right kind of paper. I don't know which kind of printer you have. This works well with inkjet printers. The settings in your driver has to match the paper you use.
If you have a dye sublimation printer (there is no ink, but a ribbon with coloured dye) you need the right brand of paper, because otherwise your printer doesn't detect the paper.

I must always hit the OK button for the printer to print.


Try doing an NvRam (Hard reset)
1 Turn off the printer.
2. Simultaneously press the Right arrow button and the X button. Keep these buttons depressed
as you turn the product on."
3. When Permanent storage init. appears on the display, release both buttons.
4.When the product has finished the NVRAM initialization, it returns to the Ready state.


Then set the paper settings on the driver, Go to printer and faxes, right click on the CP2020 series icon, got properties and finall printing preferences, se the type and size of paper you are using.

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.

I'm trying to print some photos on 4 x 6 paper. i selected notecard paper size, but the printer keeps printing the 4 x 6 photo on 8 1/2 x 11 paper.


Are you telling the printer to use the smaller paper?
If it has 2 sizes it will keep using the last size used unless you tell it to change.

Paper jams but doesn't go anywhere!


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have an HP LaserJet 4050 and it needs perform printer maintenance. what should i do


it means it is time to do some preventive maintenance on your unit, or keeping the print heads clean
It is important you keep the printer heads clean. This stops ink clogging the nozzles of the printer, and reduces ink smudge on the paper. This is important for HP , as they don’t always do the best automatic clean in my experience.
To clean the print heads, remove the cartridge, and gently clean the print heads with a soft cotton cloth dipped in a little water. I wouldn’t recommend using tissue or alcohol. Be warned!
Make sure the print heads are dry and then replace the cartridge. By doing this you will expand your printer life and the quality of the printouts.
Prevent the printer from drying up ink by using it
I remember taking support calls around a year ago. People would say I haven’t used the printer for over a year, and the quality isn’t what I expected.
If you use your printer regular this will prevent ink drying up and keep the printer and ink in good condition. Use both Colour and black and white prints weekly to stop the nozzles on your printer getting clogged up, or the ink to simply dry up. Be careful with printer jams Don’t ram the paper out if you have a paper jam. This can damage the printer, which I have seen done many times. Look at guides on the manufactures site, if you don’t have time to do that, remember that you want to get the paper out smoothly. Most HP Printers have a hatch attached at the back that can be removed. You will then have access to the paper wheels, and you should be able to see the paper that is jammed in there. Remove the paper this way, and it is unlikely that you will damage the printer. Power down correctly Turn your printer off when not in use. This can prevent drying of ink and also help keep the printer functioning at high quality. Remember to use the printers power button, and them remove at the plug if need be. Don’t power off if you are in the middle of something. These will just cause problems for you. Clean your printer but don’t over do it IF you perform print ink clean by software or your printer’s hardware, do it once and not over and over. Doing this over and over can cause more damage than good. Clean your printer’s encoder strip monthly to stop quality issues at a later date. Remember if you have low ink to replace immediately. This prevents ink being left in the printer heads and nozzles, and will generally give your printer more life.

hope this helps you, dont forget to mark my solution pls.
