Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

I have an envelope feeder that came with my old LaserJet 4 many years ago. I replaced the LJ 4 with an LJ 4-Plus and tried to use the envelope feeder on it. I get an immediate error message "EE INCOMPATIBLE". I have the booklet for the envelope feeder but that error message isn?t in it.

My suspiction is there is a tab on the tray that triggers a switch telling the printer what type of tray has been inserted. Your old tray is likely different from the Plus 4 tray and the printer knows it.

Hp lj 4 plus accepts print job but does not print Vista Home Premium


Hello charles lewis,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: What you are experiencing is a driver type miss-match. The printer cannot understand the driver language that Vista is providing. Even though it is labeled as HP LaserJet 4 Plus.

I recommend trying the plain HP LaserJet 4 drivers or Lexmark Optra drivers. They may speak the language the printer likes, through Vista. If that does not work; it is time to purchase or use a newer printer.

Have a great day!

When I try to print #10 envelopes on my HP Laserjet 4 Plus printer through the MP tray, they come ou with wrinkles, smudges and creases. And they are hot! ideas?


Make sure that if you have a setting for paper type you have it set for envelope. This would be found in the setup menus, I just don't remember if this model has that setting, they are getting to be rare now. The other common cause of print problems is the envelopes themselves, if they are old or have been stored where they have been allowed to absorb moisture, you will have a very hard time printing on them. Try some different envelopes if you have them.

HP Laserjet 4200 with optional Envelope Feeder will not automatically pull #10 envelopes from Envelope Feeder?


Use a damp lint free cloth and clean the feeder rollers.
Print out a configuration page to make sure that the printer recognizes that the feeder is installed.
Usually the envelope feeder problems stem from age and/or dirty rollers.
Make sure that your software app sees that the feeder is attached.

4250 HP. Loses settings. Correct to show envelope


In the paper-handling menu set the envelope feeder size to the size of your envelope and the envelope feeder type to *any type.

Then ensure you are printing envelopes from your application.

HP LaserJet 4 printing but binds up


Have you tried reinstalling the fuser? I am thinking the gears are not driving the exit rollers. If you purchaseda rebuilt fuser, there may even be a gear missing. Compare your new fuser to the old one.

Cannot print odd-sized envelope with 4250 LJ


I got to HP tech support, and they tell me that the envelope feeder is intended only for a few standard envelope sizes. If we're trying to use a different sized envelope, as in this case, it must be fed manually, and the feeder bin will not work. So that answers that. Thanks for the help, though.

Printer says it's out of paper but it isn't


Do you mean a real plug in envelope feeder or are you using tray 1?
