Question about HP DeskJet 952c InkJet Printer

2 Answers

HP 952c Unit will not print. "Out of paper" light keeps blinking even though paper is in tray. Pressing the "out of paper" switch should load a sheet for the printing job in progress, but does'nt. Shutting both computer and printer off for several minutes and restarting does not help. When power comes back on "Out of paper" light starts blinking again. With lid open and pushing the "out of paper light/switch" cartridges move hard left then hard right and stops at hard right limit. Any help you can offer will be appreciated. Thanks, George ghb1934@yahoo.com

    The out-of-paper light and the power light is blinking at the same time. I don't understand it, there is paper in the unit. Another problem is the ink cartidges, they seem to be stuck on the far left side and won't seem to budge. Please help.

I'm having the same issue, when I turn my HP 952C on, it prints a half a page with characters and jibberish on it, then the middle orange light is blinking, what is the problem?

Hi!

Try to cancel your document in the printers menu even if you restart the pc or the printers memory stores the previous command.

1.The idea is that printers has its own memory unless you cancel the document that you print.

e-mail me at wendel_tenebroso@yahoo.com if the problem persist

The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't


1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

Pull out the extension completely.

Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

Check paper/Check print cartridge light blinks even though I have done both. Also keeps grabbing a sheet of paper and pulling it halfway through the machine. Will not print?


The HP Customer Care site says that if th check paper and check print cartridge lights are blinking, it is most likely that the carriage assembly, which holds the ink cartridges has stalled against the left side of the printer.

HP includes extensive troubleshooting instruction for correcting this problem at the following link:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00095908&lc=en&dlc=&cc=us&product=374568

Hope this helps... their support site has been very helpful to me in on several

occasions.

Error message says"out of paper" when paper tray is fully loaded


check and make sure that the paper is in near the rollers enough that it senses the paper and picks it up. try lightly pushing the paper down toward the rollers as it is suppose to pull one sheet through the feeder. hopefully, you didnt pull too hard on getting the 'jammed' paper out that it may have caused a misalignment in the feeder. try assisting the paper, that usually fixes it. hope this helps!

Machine flashing load paper message even though paper is loaded


Hi ...

Most of the time this problem comes when the paper is not loaded correctly. Follow the below instructions to load papers to the cassette and I am sure this will resolve your problem. I will keep monitoring your responce and if required, i'll look for a work arround.

Follow this procedure to load paper / envelope in the cassette:
  1. Pull out the cassette from the machine.

    p_ch03_070_e.jpg

  2. Remove the cover from the cassette.

  3. Fan out the sheets of paper so that they do not stick together.

  4. Align the edges of the paper.

    05sj00149_01.jpg

  5. If the cassette is not yet extended, use your thumb to press the tab (indicated by the pink circular outline) and release the latch.

  6. After the latch is released, remove your thumb from the tab. Then extend the cassette until a click is heard.

    05sj00149_02.jpg

  7. Load paper on the upper-right corner of the cassette with the print side facing down.

    Note:
    * Since the Credit Card sized paper, Canon Photo Stickers, and Legal sized paper cannot be fed from the cassette, load them in the auto sheet feeder (ASF).
    * When loading A5 or larger sized paper (nonstandard-size paper: 203mm / 8inches or more in length), extend the cassette by pinching the tab.


  8. Grasp the paper guide (A) and align it to the long edge of the envelope stack (2). Align the front edge of the paper stack in the same way (3).

  9. Close the lid and push the cassette all the way into the printer.

  10. Press the <Open> button and pull out the extension completely.

  11. Press the <Feed Switch> button to turn on the Cassette light.

    05sj00149_04.jpg

    *MP500 shown.

    Note:
    If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp lights, press the Feed Switch button to light the Cassette lamp.
    If the Cassette lamp does not light even after pressing the Feed Switch button, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than the Feed Switch button.

Loading on envelopes
Paper Type
Precaution
Envelope (DL / #10 )
Set paper with the flap closed.
  1. Press down firmly on the edges of the envelopes to make the folds crisp. Also, press firmly on the area that corresponds to the edges of the back flap.

  2. Remove any curling by holding the edges diagonally and bending them gently.

    envprep360.gif

  3. If the edges of the envelope are inflated or are curling, place the envelope on a flat surface. With a pen, press down while moving it from the center toward the edges of the envelope.

  4. Ensure that no curl or puff exceeds 1/8 in. (3 mm).

  5. Load envelopes in the cassette with the print side facing down and the flap towards the left.

    05sj00149_05_te.jpg

  6. Close the lid and push the cassette all the way into the printer.

  7. Press the <Open> button and pull out the extension completely.

  8. Press the <Feed Switch> button to turn on the Cassette light.

    05sj00149_04.jpg

    Note:
    If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp lights, press the Feed Switch button to light the Cassette lamp.
    If the Cassette lamp does not light even after pressing the Feed Switch button, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than the Feed Switch button.

LaserJet 1200 Stops pulling paper


If the printer works fine for you, but doesn't work properly for someone else I would assume user error. Just make sure that there is plenty of paper in the tray and that it is centered. Also look around for any small peices of paper that might've gotten stuck near the tray, preventing new sheets from getting pulled.

Printer won't print the first red light is blinking sounds like it trying to grab paper but it's not


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printing problem with HP 2015 Laserjet Printer


If you have an adjustable paper tray, make sure that the tray is set for the right size paper. Also, you may have some type of sensor in or around the printer tray that tells the computer when the paper tray is empty. Sometimes these sensors get stuck and you have to free them up (very gentley).

Hope that helps - Ghost

Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.


Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!

Flashing light


Here is what HP has on the subject of the triangle light flashing:
c00028322.gif 1 - Attention Light 2 - Ready Light 3 - Go Light Figure 2: Printer light key c00028323.gif 1 - Symbol for light off 2 - Symbol for light on 3 - Symbol for light blinking
c00028328.gif Door open, media out, no print cartridge, or media jam

The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention or help. Check the following:
  • The print cartridge door is completely closed.
  • Media is loaded.
  • The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer.
  • There is no media jam.

Figure 8: Paper jam c00028328.gif 13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY 1

13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY X

The Attention LED is blinking. Check paper loading then open and close top cover.

When there is a jam in tray 1, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored.

When there is a jam in tray X, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored. These are the error explanations for just the flashing triangle light, there are many more, but none for just the flashing triangle.

If the light pattern is different let me know (other lights on as well)
-Hope this helps.
