Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer

1 Answer

Printer has started to misalign text, moving up past labels

My HP 2420 has just recently begun to slowly move its text up. I have forms which have 8 labels down at the bottom. Over time, the text has 'moved up' and is now not aligned with the labels. I only use the top tray for this function as the bottom tray is used for other text functions. the paper is fed in a stack and the printer prints one or two sheets as needed. Is it a feed issue? A roller issue?

Verify your paper settings match between the printer and PC. If a roller is dirty the paper might feed late.

I have an hp 4300 with a 13.12.00 error when the duplexer is installed


Here is a copy of the 13.12 error troubleshooting steps from the service manual.

1. Press the HELP ( ) button for
detailed information about
clearing the jam.
2. Press the UP ARROW( )
button and the
DOWN ARROW ( ) button to
step through the instructions.
3. Check the paper width and
fuser delivery sensors
(PS106, PS108) and verify
that the sensor arms move
freely. (See "Location of
printer switches and sensors"
on page 336.)
4. Check the inside of the
duplexer for scraps of media
that might have torn off when
a jam was cleared.
5. Replace the media-size
sensor (PS106) and fuser.
See "Location of printer
switches and sensors" on
page 336 and "Fuser" on
page 162.
6. Turn the power off. Remove
the duplexer and turn the
power on. If the error

the DC controller PCA. See
"DC controller PCA" on
page 181.
7. Replace the fuser (PS108).
See "Fuser" on page 162.
8. If the error message appears
frequently, see "Paper-path
troubleshooting" on
page 295.

One label printing over two label forms


Always check to make sure the printer is advancing one label at a time by itself before printing. If it does then you know the printer has a good read on the label size. Then if it misaligns when printing then you know the problem is in the printer driver because the printer is only going to do what it's told to do.

So best is to turn printer off, power up, press feed to see if one label feeds ok. If the label feed is off at this point then the printer needs to be calibrated which is done by pressing and holding FEED while turning the printer on.

Hope that helps !

Prints on two cards


You can modify the position in the menu.
The start position can be prgrammed in the personal settings.
Moving the paperwon't change anything because the printer will always check the top of feed

My hp 2420 printer show me an error 49.2FD9


power on your printer, after you see processing data the second time, press cancel.
Everytime I have seen this error is because the user tries to print a PDF file that is corrupt.
This has worked for me in the past.

Distorted printed documents


Try this steps first and these steps first :

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

your printing program needs a template, based on the label makers specs. That's usually what causes that, not the printer itself.

got backup?
