Re: wont print power is on can hear jets runing
What you hear is the carriage going back and forth as well as the paper being transported through the path. The actual printheads are silent. More than likely, you have a bad or empty cartridge. Try using the printer's utility to clean the printheads - you may have to this a few times. If that doesn't work, replace the printhead.

there is something wrong with your Word printer setup. Go to Word, then from the File menu select the Print option and when the print window opens see if the HP deskjet is selected as default printer. Then, in the upper right quadrant theres a button called Advanced Settings, or Prefferences (depending on your Word version). Click that button and check to see if the HP printer is set as On Line, and is set to print odd and even pages. Also, check the margins of the paper. Ink Jet printers cant print over the full page, there's always a need of some margin on each side of the paper, so you'll need to set the margins from all sides on at least 0.5 inches
In your printer preferences, changer paper 'source'. For this specific printer the HP Laser Jet 4: Under the "General" Tab there is a button LEFT of "print test page". Click on that [printing preferences], the next window that comes up, click on the top tab that reads "Paper/Quality" and select 'lower tray' or your tray of choice.
Well the printer is telling you to load "Legal Size paper, which is 8.5" X 14" paper.
More than likely, the application you are using is telling the printer to print the page on legal sized paper.
If you want the document to print on "Letter sized paper (8.5" X 11") then in the application, go to the File drop down and select "Page Setup". From within page setup's window, change the paper size to letter and then re-print the job.
Step 1 Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.) * Step 2 Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible." * Step 3 If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer. * Step 4 Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper. * Step 5 If you have a laser printer, inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper jams and should be replaced by a technician. * Step 6 If you have a laser printer, try cleaning the printer's paper rollers with a lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (available at electronics shops or drugstores). * Step 7 Try changing the toner or ink cartridge. * Step 8 If you hear a clinking sound during printing, your printer probably has a broken gear and needs to be serviced by a technician.
Please take note of the paper used. Letter Size A4 or custom. This can be set on the PC (Mac or Window). If not you may just reset the hardware by holding the 1st and 3rd button and then power on. You may hear a beep sound after resetting. Good luck
The solution to this is bizarre but worked for me.
In Vista press the windows key and R button. The Run window opens and in the run window type services.msc and then press Enter. 2. Locate Print spooler from the Services window which opened in the previous step. 3. Right click on it and select Restart.
Your printer will print a self-test page but then should be good to go.
