    Try to boot the printer without options, e.g. drawer, duplex, etc., and remove it from the network, maybe this is a problem with one of the options. If problem continues, system board and the op panel may need replacement.

Start up printer stays in o5 self help test


Should sit in 05 Self Test for a minute or so... then continue booting up.
If it sit there forever, then switch it off and remove the JetDirect card (if fitted) and try again.
Then remove the RAM modules and try again.
If it starts up, try the part you removed back in the printer again. If the fault returns, you have found the faulty part. Remove or replace as required.

HP 1720 I making a noise when printing.


Troubleshootinggtabtop.gif
    NOTE: Refer to the Testing section in this document for instructions on performing the tests.
  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur while the printer is initializing.
  2. Perform a paper path test. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur because the carriage should not be moving.
  3. Perform a self-test to localize the noise.
  4. Check the printer for obstructions by lifting the top cover and making sure nothing is blocking the carriage movement.
  5. Check the paper path by following the instructions below:
    1. Remove all media from Trays 1, 2, and 3.
    2. Pull out any visible stuck paper.
    3. Lift the top cover, and pull out any jammed paper.
    4. If you are unable to free the jammed paper, pull out the handle of the paper knob, pull the knob away from the printer, and rotate it to remove the paper.
    5. Lower the rear access door by lifting up on the two rear door latches.
    6. Remove the back panel by pushing the two catches inward.
    7. Pull out any paper that may be stuck inside.
  6. Wipe down the milky white strip (see Figure 1) that the front of the carriage glides on with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
