Question about HP LaserJet 6L Printer

HP Laserjet 6L Dark Printing

I recently replaced the pickup, feed, and transfer rollers to fix a paper feed problem. That problem is fixed, but now there is a new problem: some print pages are so dark that the text is difficult if not impossible to read. The problem occurs intermittently. Some print jobs perform perfectly while others have dark horizontal streaks, and still others produce a very dark page. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thanks. But I also replaced the cartridge, so that is not the source of the problem. After installing a new cartridge, the "dark" pages just got darker.

Hp laserjet p3005dn printer taking 3 papers


Your problem description is not clear, but based on experience I bet that your printer is taking three sheets of paper at a time. The pickup roller in tray 2 and the separation pad in the tray are probably worn out. They are easy enough to replace. You can verify that printer works properly by printing from manual feed tray and if that works ok then above solution is likely your fix.

Replaced seperation pad?. separation pad work is to block multiple paper feeding,but in yourcase paper not at all feeding means paper pickup roller not picking up the papers.replace both 2 & 3 paper pickup rollers..

Have an HP LaserJet 6L. Just got through replacing all the rollers inside. Can get it to grudgingly print one sheet, then no printing after that one sheet, it often just grips the paper, but won't...


You need to make sure that you have the clutch that the solenoid interacts with seated properly. I had a tech once manage to get the clutch on at 180 degrees from correct alignment, not sure how he did it, but the printer would not print. It is possible if you are not paying attention to mount the pickup roller in the wrong position which will lead to feed problems. You need to make sure that the highest point on the roller is touching the paper when at the right time.

Hello. During printing I often can see error message 13.01.00 - paper jam, but really nothing jammed. I have printer HP LaserJet p3005. Thanks


Your printer has a misfeeding problem.
It never fed any paper so the sensor never sensed paper and thinks that there was a jam.
Try using the manual feed tray. If that works, pull out tray 2 and clean the feed roller . Is this printer
up to date on its maintenance? The feed roller might have to be replaced.

HP Color LaserJet 3500, 3550, and 3700 Series Printers - 59.99.00 Error Displayed on the Control Panel Issue

When faced with a 59.99 error, we have found additional ways to solve the issue since the service manual was written.
Error: 59.99.00 Description: An error occurred in the secondary transfer engaging mechanism. Solution

Follow the troubleshooting steps below:

  1. Fuser seated improperly. Reseat the fuser.
    NOTE: You may hear grinding sounds from the right, rear of the printer associated with this specific failure also.

  2. Faulty secondary transfer engagement sensor. Replace the secondary transfer engagement sensor. (PS16, part of paper pickup/feed assembly)

  3. Faulty secondary transfer engaging solenoid. Replace the secondary transfer engaging solenoid. (SL4, part of paper pickup/feed assembly)

  4. Faulty feed motor. Replace the feed motor. (M1)

  5. Faulty DC controller PCB. Replace the DC controller PCB.

  6. If the 59.99 error only occurred after removing and reinstalling the paper pickup/feed assembly, what may have happened is that the secondary transfer engaging solenoid SL4 may have become dislocated. See figure below. Verify position of tab on top of solenoid.

Multiple paper feed with 5L


You need a separation pad kit for your machine. The parts are relatively inexpensive. There are 2 ways to accomplish the fix. You can install a separation pad overlay kit which can be done without disassembly which is simply adding a peice of rubber over the existing pad or a complete roller & pad kit which requires disassembly of the machine. The easiest is the overlay however best and longest fix is the full kit replacement. Here's a link to each of the kits off of ebay.

Overlay Kit: (5 minute install) Approx. $10.00

hp printers typically do not have an error message to cover every known condition, thus if the printer needs maintenance in an undefined area, it will invariably indicate a paper jam. The printer usually responds to the installation of a maintenance kit which will include transfer roller, pickup rollers, and fuser.

HP 2420 Tray 2 Open or Empty


Needs feed roller replaced, you can see it when you remove cassette and look up, they wear and tray one uses a diiferent feed roller hence it still works. Cleaning the roller (rag with a little metho) sometimes helps but it should be replaced otherwise it will return.
