Question about HP LaserJet 4p Printer

HP Laser Jet 4p printer problem - will not print continuously

I have my printer hooked to an Imac. It will NOT print automatically. If I have a 10 page document to print, I have to hit "continue" after each page is printed because it says "MF Feed Letter" on the display and will stop printing unless I manually hit the "continue" button after each and every page.

    THANK YOU!!! I checked this before, but this time I hit "enter" to save it and it is now working like a charm! Thanks for such a quick response. I now can print without having to sit with one finger on the "continue" button!!! Wahoo!

    Oh it won't go on line even though it says it is. This happened when I turned it off and then turned it back on again. The "on line" light is lit, but then I get a message saying it's "off line" when I try to print and now it won't print anything.
    Any idea?

    Well....I turned it off and then turned it back on and now it shows the "on line" light is lit, but when I try to print, it says the printer is "off line". Any ideas???

    Thanks. That worked for one time. I had my printer settings to "select the last one used". I changed it to make the laserjet printer the default and it worked once. It seems it will work, but I must reboot my computer first before it will print anything. Then it works fine???? Luckily I am on an Imac and it doesn't take forever to reboot like windows does.
    I am also using paralells desktop and have windows loaded on the same Imac. Do you think that could have anything to do with my printer problem?
    When I run Windows on it, I have to turn my other printer off and then back on before it will print from windows, and then it prints just fine.
    I am having printer problems with two printers in two different os, but the problems are different.
    Any ideas?

    It keeps printing what looks like a stats sheet. It also only does this when I push the continue button. It wont print when I push print from any programs.

    Right click on the printer icon.

    1. go to control panel.

    2. select printer/faxes

    there you will see the printer installed, right click to that icon and uncheck if its selected the make the printer offline.

    Because you have to select the printer you will use. There's 1 default printer and you have 2 installed on your system, you must call which printer you will use if it's not set on default.

How do you print duplex on a HP Laser Jet 4650n

You have to print the first side then take those prints and put them back into the paper tray to print the second side (Manual Duplex). If this were a DN model it would have built in automatic duplexing and you cound select "duplex printing" from your print setup screen and the printer would print both sides automatically.

HPLaserjet4P - printer service 50 -


A 50 Service error is a fuser error. Turn the printer off for 5 to 10 minutes, then turn it back on. If the error is still there, I think your going to need to make a service call you can try reseating the fuser, but be sure to let the fuser cool completely before touching it.
Good Luck the HP Laserjet 4p is a great printer.
