Hp LaserJet 1100: Runs louder than normal and continuously, BUT will not grab paper and print

Runs louder than normal and continuously, BUT will not grab paper and print.

1. Try to print something on my computer
2. Printer turns itself on
3. BUT, it is louder than normal (sounds like a computer fan amped up a lot)
4. Runs continuously, BUT doesn't grab paper and print

ANY IDEAS? Thanks, Fred

Fred shine a flashlight down the paper feed throat and see if the feer roller is rotating when the printer tries to print.
I have had to replace many of the feed rolls and separation pads in this series of printer.
the tires get dirty or worn and feed multiple sheets or none at all. check for obstructions as well-sometimes the black mylar sheet which sits in front of the feed roll gets in the way of the paper path and has to be pushed in place. I have also seen paper pieces stuck next to the paper path switch which is visible after removing the toner cartridge. hope this helps.

How do I change HP Laserjet 1100 to NOT manual feed under Printer Properties?


I suspect the printer is defaulting to manual feed because it thinks there is a page in the manual paper feed. Make sure no bits of paper debris are jamming the sensor.

Manual feed won't grab paper


If the printer works good when it prints the envelopes/label one by one, I think it works normal (because the paper is not a standard paper).

Try this solution from Glyph1: http://www.fixya.com/support/t5375375-printer_keeps_printing_blank_pages_non

Chances are it's some kind of software problem. I've had this problem many times in the past, but unfortunately I can't remember how I solved it. Glyph1's solution is sound in my opinion, if you still have problems after that let us know and we can try some other things :)

Black strip over all printed papers


Check your Drum cartridge, if you see your strip replace it....If it's not the problem you may have a bad Fuser ....

HP LaserJet 1100


Does it only whine when it paper is passing through it? Does it whine before the paper is fed in and after it's ejected? If so, could possible be the fuser unit. If it only whines when paper is passing through, it may be the paper passing between a worn-out feed roller and separator pad, which are high-mortality items on this model. Can you supply any more details?
