Question about HP LaserJet 2100 Printer

Printer Printing Crooked!

I have an old Laserjet 2100 that works great except for one small (major) problem....Everything that comes out of the printer is cockeyed! It doesn't appear to be a feed issue as there is no binding, and all of the edges of the paper are crisp and not damaged. Anyone have any idea what could be causing this, or how I can fix it?

Thanks in advance!!

Try printing from the multi purpose tray...do you get the same problem...if not you can narrow the problem down to the paper tray area...try changing main pickup roller and separation pad. If problem is present printing from either tray then the next place I would go is to the registration assembly (flapped unit that resides under the toner cartridge). The job of the part is to line the paper up before it feeds further in to the printing process. You could also do whats called a 1/2 test...put paper in the mp tray, do a print and when there is only about 2-3 inches of the paper sticking out the mp tray open the toner lid...lift out the toner cartridge and see if paper is skewed before entering the fuser. It really does sound like the registration assembly.

Most likely to be a page feed problem, look online to clean page feeder rubber rollers.
Try here for the pdf manual which covers problem with jams and skewing

I got a new computer but an old printer and I need the driver for it. It's a Hp officejet 2100 tn. I worried I'm going to download the wrong one and get virus's.


Hello,

All versions of windows since Win XP have had the driver for the Laserjet 2100 built in. When you connect your printer to the computer and reboot it should say 'found new hardware' and load the correct driver automatically.

No printing


Well this issue must be related to the drivers of the printer, possibly incompatibility. Let's try to fix it with the easiest method.
First uninstall the driver after the printer is disconnected from the computer. Then run a registry cleaner (click here to download a freeware registry cleaner) to clear any unwanted registry files. You'll also need to clean the system using the feature with this application.
Now download this driver Hplaserjet 2100 windows vista32 (if your system is 32 bit) or hplaserjet 2100 windows vista64. Extract the files to a specific folder and follow the instructions as follows;
Click "Start" , select "Settings/control panel" and click the "Printers" folder.
Double-click "Add Printer".or click "File" on the menu and select "Add printer"
The "Add Printer wizard" will open. Select "My computer" then click "Next".
Select LPT1 (whether directly connected or networked) and click "Next".
Click "Have Disk".
Click "Browse".
The Locate file window will come up saying a: "is not accessible" . Click "Cancel".
Under "Look in" select the folder where the file is saved.
Highlight "HPLAOUT.INF" and click "Ok".
The Install from Disk window will reappear, click "Ok".
Select "HP LaserJet 2100 Series PCL 6" and click "Next".
Select the "Replace existing driver" option and click "Next". (This window will not come up if the uninstaller was used).
Select Not Shared and click "Next" .
Select "Yes" and then click "Finish".
Please don't skip even a step from the uninstall process. And do let me know when you are done.

Till then, Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Canon MX860 prints crooked!


Does this happen when printing from the cassette (bottom tray), or the sheet feeder in the back, or both? Check that the paper guides are set snugly (touching but not buckling the paper) against the edges of the paper.

HP LaserJet 2100 will not stop printing nonsense when I have cancelled and cleared the print memory. It's going through tons of paper and turning it off, along w/the computer, for several minutes does not...


The "nonsense" is your printer trying to interpret the information. Go to HP.com and download the correct drivers. Delete all other drivers from the Printers and Faxes/File/Server Properties. Then install your correct print driver

How do you take ot the ink cartrage on the hp laserjet 2100 printer?


Open the top door and lift it up and toward you. If it won't come out, it may be broken. You may have to use a little more force to get it out in pieces.
