This may be a problem with the software. If it is, try a different application and print. Please check on your paper size.

Inconsistent printing


In the printer's dialogue find the print pages number. Print page from/to and select 20 pages chunks. In effect print only part of the document at a time. Add all chunks together in one pile. Work around I know, but it works.

Constant Paper Jam


check the wheels that pick it from the tray.
If they feel smooth, try to put some tape on them and rip it back off.
This cleans the wheels. Also try a new pack of paper and check if it\'s set to plain paper and not to heavier or coated paper

Your best bet would be to uninstall the printer, then shut down, and then reinstall with the most up to date drivers. Pay attention to the model you select, as it is important that it matches the driver.

Reading no paper paper tray is full


Instructions
  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

Page prints half page then jams


I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed throught the printer. The reason for this, in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

E3 on LED paperwill not feed


Hello,

What you want to do is remove all paper, the prepare to run a print test page or print a blank sheet from some program, any program. Just be ready to do this.

Now, find a magazine cover or index card stock, something firm. Cut this magazine cover to the same width as regular paper 8 1/2 in the US or A4 in Eurpoe.

Now, when you start the print job, push the magazine cover or index stock through while its printing. Apply pressure it the key, to getting the thicker paper through.

This will clear the sensors in the printer and remove the error message.

Why did this happen? In the printer, there are numerous sensors to identify jammed paper. This can happen for the strangest reasons. By pushing thicker paper through while feeding paper by running a print job, the thicker paper forces the sensors back to their original position.

Regards,
Worldvet

Paper jam light is on


Hi! I have the same issue. The only solution I still use: select print from document with no paper in the hp's feeder. Let the printer go on "paper out" message, now put the paper into the feeder and press the print button on the printer. Success!
