Question about HP LaserJet IIIp Printer

1 Answer

Paper jamming only takes card stock however does not print anythi

We have an HP laserjet iiip printer and it was (hopefully is) an old work horse. In the middle of printing it started paper jamming. The paper would not go on the roller, so the jam was easy enough to fix. However, it continued so I thought maybe the cartridge was bad. Got another cartridge something. However I do get it to take card stock paper without jamming but it does not print. It still does not take regular paper.
After trouble shooting via the book and hp site all I end up with is the printer needs service.

I would replace the printer if it was giving me that much trouble.

Rollers do not turn on!
Rollers are driven by a motor.
How is the printer telling you this information? (does the PC give an error, or the printer flash lights)

Does the paper make it out of the machine?

Is this "Rollers in the Back" the Fuser Unit?

is The Fuser unit is going bad,
if you open the back top cover, where it gets real hot, where the paper exit's, you should see two rollers, one orange, one either brown or black.. if that orange roller is damaged, has crease's, or covered with black toner, if the paper jams here alott, you probably need a new fuser unit. there is a pm kit available which includes the fuser and rollers, transfer, etc, which this site might have

SOURCE: HP Laserjet IIIP starting printing thin vertical black line

Was this happening before you swapped toner?
Is there toner streaks on the drum? Yes? Defective.
What if you stop the printer (open cover) as it passes through the fuser to determine if image is from drum or fuser?
But really....isn't it time to move on anyway???

SOURCE: HP photosmart C4480 printer cartridge incompatible error

Well....I solved the problem......bought a new Canon printer!!

I tried everything...unplugging, cleaning everything that was mentioned above. I was onto HP online support several time, but they were absolutely no help at all...they basically told me that the cartridge must be damaged or ink dried up and to buy a new cartridge to see if the error persisted.....I don't think so!!!
I will never by HP again after having issues with the last two I have had. I love my new Canon printer it is EVERYTHING that HP wasnt.

Frequent paper jam


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,
I m not sure what the specification of the paper type you are using however if you are using card stock than you should use manual feed Tray and in the printer driver properties you should select paper type as Card-Stock to make sure there is no print quality issue.

HP IIIp prints extra blank pages


HI there make sure that the paper tray guides are fully against the paper also try sending the job through the manual feed to see if you get the same problem. If you do not then it maybe that the paper cassette separation pad is worn and will need replacing. If your model has no rubber pad at the front of the cassette then you will have a metal hold over one corner of the paper make sure that when the paper lifts that the paper sits under the silver (Dog Ear) as this acts as a separator.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Paper jams


Hi conniebrown you may be using a card that is too heavy for the machine check the specifications that you card is within the recommended guidelines of not use a lower weight card. Also make sure that you are putting the card through the tray 1 unit and that on the driver properties you have selected card stock. Try this I hope it works for you.

Hi Guest you may have a piece of paper stuck under that registration unit open front cover remove the transfer unit and also remove the toner cartridges. Once this is done at the bottom you will see where the paper guides through (Black unit with green piece in the middle) close the front door half way then you will be able to lift that unit up and check underneath it. There is normally a small piece of paper there causing your jam.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
