Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer
From the Manual:
To verify that the printer engine is functioning, print an engine-test page. To print an engine-
test page, press the engine-test-page switch on the formatter (see callout 5 in Figure 7-8.
Sensors and switches, HP LaserJet 2400 series).
The test page should have a series of vertical lines. The test page prints from the last tray
that you used to print unless the printer has been turned off, and then turned on again since
the most recent print job.
If the printer has been turned off and then on again since the most
recent print job, then the page will print from tray 2. The printer
will continuously print test
pages as long as the test-page switch is depressed. The printer
will not print a test page if it
is in Sleep mode.
A damaged formatter might interfere with the engine test. If the
engine test page does not print, try removing the formatter and
performing the engine test again. If the engine test is
then successful, the problem is in the formatter, the control
panel, or the cable that connects
Let me know your outcome.

I have fixed the problem. Inside to the left side of the toner there are 3 springs. One of the springs was "knocked" out of alignment. Once replaced back into its track the printer printed fine.

Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :
Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.
Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.
Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.
Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.
