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.

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

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.

HP Lazerjet IIIp driver for Windows XP


I just looked at windows xp and the drivers for HP Laserjet IIIP are included with windows xp.
Go to START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS and FAXES (if using the classic menu, I'm not using the XP menu system or go to the control panel, select classic icons and select Printers and Faxes either way will work. ) once inside the printer and faxes window, choose "Add Printer" Click NEXT, click Local Printer, click NEXT, click the port you will be using (With that old of a printer methinks it will be LPT1:) click NEXT, The driver selection screen will come up, Choose HP on the left hand side of that screen and HP LaserJet IIIP is on the bottom part of the list on the right hand side of the screen (They are not listed in number order like you might assume they are). Click HP LaserJet IIIP and click NEXT, It will ask for a printer name and you can keep the default name, Click either yes or no about the question "do you want to use this printer as the default printer?" and click NEXT, Click if you are going to share the printer and click NEXT, answer "Do you want to print a test page?" click NEXT and it should install the drivers for that printer and print a test page once installed. Then click FINISH on the last page and your printer should be installed.

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
