Does this machine have a duplexor and if so have you checked in there for a piece of paper? This sounds to me like it's definately going to either be a hidden piece of paper or an actual piece of a piece of paper stuck in the sensor path, don't know what type a printer so can't really give the most difinitive answer... hope this helps...

Panasonic KX-P7110 printer won't print from the auto feed tray, shows error when printing is attempted.


Hello,
Please check the entire length of the paper feed path from input to output for a small piece of paper that is stuck causing a "Paper Jam".
You are lucky that you can still print manually as this usually shuts a printer down until the jam is found and removed!
Good Luck!

WAS HAVING TROUBLE WITH HL 2040 PRINTER , LEARNT HOW TO RESET , FIXED THE PROBLEM. TRIED TO PRINT A WORD DOCUMENT , WOULD NOT PRINT - BUT WOULD PRINT EXCEL DOCUMENTS. WHILST TRYING TO GET STARTED AGAIN...


Hi Ron, I dont think you have a printer problem, i think you have a print driver/computer problem.

To find out unplug it (the usb) from you computer, turn it off so no data remains from previous print commands sent from your pc and run a self test by holding your green go button when you turn it on, keep it held untill toner, drum and paper lights light up, then let it go, then press the go button and the printer will print a self test....

If this works ok then we know your printer is ok. and your issue is as i suspect it is, with your print driver, paper size or tray select settings in Driver or in Word or in Excel or your document.

You can isolate if document problem by doing self test in print driver in control panel..

If self test on printer unpluged works and we have no error lights and are seeing the test ok and no flashing lights then you may want to ensure driver is good by completly unistaling the driver on your pc, do this by unistalling all brother stuff from control panel/programs and features (depends on operation system you are using).

Then with it still not connected, go to brothers web and download the full software and drivers package to suit your operating system, run it and only plug in the usb when instructed.

Let me know if your printer shows an error when not connected or if self test fails and Ill go down that road with you... if paper light on it when not connected, it tells us we have a jam, make sure you check back door and under toner drum and paper is sitting neat in tray

But when you tell me excel works and word doesnt, i dont think printer, it is software.Check your page size settings in word and excel and of your documents as the flashing paper light may be the printer trying to tell you the data sent to it from word is a paper size mis match to what the printer has in its tray and it wants you to feed the correct size paper in the manual feed/bypass slot. You should also check paper size and tray selection in your print driver in printers and faxs under control panel is the same as your document. Here is your manual

and here is where you can download your print driver (unistall old software and unpug usb first)

The more i ponder this, it is page size settings in document/excell/word and printer is asking you to feed paper in manual pass slot (above tray)

CHEERS RON
STEVE ;)

My error light keeps blinking but I have no idea whats causing it - last time it was a paper jam, which I fixed easily enough, but now I've no idea what to do


turn on/off, unplug, plug in, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck preventing from accepting paper.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

I have an HP 4V laserjet printer. It was printing fine until today. Both trays are full but it wont print. Form feed light is on, LC load letter message is flashing.


This is looking for Letter Sized Paper and presumably nit A$ that you normally use. This is usually caused by printing US documents and not resetting the paper size in the application before printing as the paper size will be embedded in the document in its original format.

Simply select the whole document and then reset the paper size to A4. You may need to check the document for lost images and tables but generally the text should be OK. Also the index and table of contents will also be affected as you will presumably have more A4 pages in the reformatted document that in the original.

The led screen shows genera error


you need to reset your printer try doing this
  • Press and hold “Stop”, “Maintenance”, and “Power” buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and others don’t have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up.
  • Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That’s all there is to the reset procedure.

Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.
