Sounds like your printing to a custom page size in your printer properties in the computer, go into control panel >> printers >> right click your printer >> go to properties Set the page size to A4 or Letter. When you go to print your document, use the printer properties button to make sure your page size remains at A4 or Letter. I think the printer may be asking you to insert your custom page size, and then waiting for the "Go" button to print, next page . repeat. (kinda like if you were inserting envelopes or greeting cards), Also check that your page setup in your word /office software is set to letter, as this would cause the same result.

Z4Mplus test page


Do you want to print out settings? Do you want to print a printhead check? Make sure supplies are loaded and the printer is ready to print. Turn off the printer, press X button, turn on the printer while pressing de X button and release the button after aprox 5 seconds from power on. This will print out the configuration page. Do the same but with the Pause button, and you will get a printhead quality test. Note that the test with Pause button it will stop automaticly only after some 10 printed labels . You will need to restart the printer after that, or press the cancel button several times.

Why is the light flashing on the right side


If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:

• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing.
• The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.


If it's Busy:
• Wait for the message to clear.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.


If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages:
• Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the
printing stops.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel printing.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

If I am not printing continuously, the printer does not print the first 5-6 printing jobs. When print job sent to the printer I get a blank page (printing job can be more than one page). After the blank...


Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below

How do I replace the photoconductor where is the menu button to reset PC CNT appears after it is replaced?


Power the printer on and get it to the Ready state. With the printer on and in the Ready state, open the front cover.
Press and hold the Cancel button until all of the lights begin flashing up and down.
Release the Cancel button and close the door. The photoconductor count should now be reset.
To confirm that the photoconductor page count has been reset, it is recommended that you print a menu settings page and check the photoconductor level. Do the following:
With the printer at the Ready status, press the Continue button once. The Ready light will begin flashing and one or two pages will print out.
Look for a section labeled Cartridge Information and locate the word Photoconductor under this heading.
Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is either OK or close to 100%.
If the reading is low, try printing 10 - 20 pages. Print the menu settings page(s) again.
Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
Good luck, Gerrit Jan

Button sequence for head test (to look for banding)


Turn the printer off.
Load a sheet of white laser paper.
Press and hold the "Power" & "Ready/FF" buttons at the same time.
Release the "Power" button, and keep pressing the Ready/FF" button.
Right after you release the "Power" button, count 4 seconds, and release the Ready/FF" button.
Immediately, press and release the "Ready/FF" button one last time.
The printer should start printing a series of letters, numbers, horizontal lines and a black solid bar at the bottom of the sheet.
Once this test page is completed, turn the printer off to stop the test.

You need to print the configuration page :

=> Power on the printer and makes sure it comes to the 'Ready' state.
=> Press and hold the Go button between 5 and 10 seconds until the attention and ready lights flash.
=> Release the button. If you held the button down for too long it would flash the Attention LED.
=> Press and release the Job cancel button to start all over again if you held the button down for too long.
