Question about HP LaserJet 4L Printer

1 Answer

HP4L prints all balck page

My wife tried printing labels using the paper tray. Needless to say some stuck inside the printer. I do have some knowledge in printer repair and was able to get the labels out. I have taken the printer apart twice and still end up with a black page when printing a test page using the blue swith on top of the printer. The printer also produces a goaing sound when feeding paper. Any help, please??

    I have a HP 4l Laserjet printer. It prints a totally black page. I tried using a new toner but the problem is still there. I brought it to a printer repair shop and they said that it is because of the scanner. Is it true? any suggestions

When printing documents no matter how few or how many pages, paper gets stuck in the middle of printing.


Try using regular paper on unit as specified by Samsung. If that does not resolve the issue then the hassle lies with the paper feed mechanism. Often a good cleaning of all the rollers in the path can take care of the issue.

When I try to print on a 6x6 envelope on my hp envy 110 printer it tells me it is the wrong size paper. No where is there a setting for a 6x6


Print labels and envelopes


With the HP ENVY 110 series, you can print on a single envelope, a group of envelopes, or label sheets
designed for inkjet printers.


To print a group of addresses on labels or envelopes


1. Print a test page on plain paper first.
2. Place the test page on top of the label sheet or envelope, and hold both up to the light. Check the spacing for
each block of text. Make adjustments as needed.
3. Load the labels or envelopes into the paper tray.
CAUTION: Do not use envelopes with clasps or windows. They can get stuck in the rollers and cause
paper jams.
4. Slide paper-width guides inward against the stack of labels or envelopes until the guides stop.
5. Select the appropriate options.
• On -Paper/Quality- tab select a Plain paper type.
• Click the [Advanced] button, and select the appropriate envelope size from the Paper Size drop down
menu.
6. Click [OK], and then click [Print] or [OK] in the Print dialog box.




If you print from within a program that DOES have that listed (like M$ Word,) then you don't need the limited printer driver to specify the paper size.

Paper gets stuck in Epson S/C 900. Laptop XP reinstalled. I will pay the $30 if you can get it to work. Drivers installed by Epson. Cisco says it isnt them. Dell too. Printer on for a year but not used....


inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)


Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers


If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer.

Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper



you can also you a light blower or vaccum to clean the printer be sure to remove the ink catridge from the printer before using them


after doing so click the printer icon in the task bar and click open it and delete all the files in them

then click start settings click printer and faxes then make your printer default then switch of the printer and the computer remove the power plug and the usb cable wait for few minutes and replug them then restart your computer and the printer then click start setting printer and right click the printer and click properties in the printer properties click the print a test page and your printer will be ready to print

Problem printing labels


These labels are supposed to be for laser or inkjet . A inkjet basically sprays the ink to print. A laser deposits plastic powder and then uses heat to melt it or fuse it to the paper. To get a good inkjet print you need a softwaer paper, to get a good laser print you want a harder paper and a glue that can handle the heat. I had a quick look at customer complaints on that product and you are not alone. Either the printing is coming off (inkjet) or the label is coming off inside the printer.

One of the other problems with labels in lasers can also be how the paper is printed. The paper can be rolled around a few rollers and drums. This action can be pretty close to how you peel the labels off of the backer sheet. Add a bit of heat to make the glue loosen up a bit and you get your problem.

Setting to thicker paper should have helped but the best thing you could do is print it flat. Most laser printers have a back tray that is usually closed. When opened the tray lets the paper come out without having to go around rollers. If your model doesn't do that about the only thing I could suggest is to try to print the labels on a cold printer. So that would mean one page or so at a time with a wait for it to cool down. You could also try a differant brand or another avery type but you may end up with a label collection if they prove to have the same problem with your printer.

Printer will not print...it jammed ......the paper jammed in the machine..and I pulled it out....


1. Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
2. Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible."
3. If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer.
4. Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper.f you have a laser printermag-glass_10x10.gif, inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper jams and should be replaced by a technician.
5. if you have a laser printer, try cleaning the printer's paper rollers with a lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (available atelectronics shops or drugstore.Try changing the toner or ink cartridge.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).

I would suggest pulling the toner out and paper tray and using compressed air to blow out all ereas of the printer. If that does not work then you will have to remove the 2 screws at the back of the printer and with the two tabs at the top remove the backa nd look for paper jammed inside.
