HP PSC 1315 Problem

Dear Coolguy,

I had tried what you first mentioned before sending in the problem, but that was not the problem, so I added the following comments to clarify my problem. (Sure hope you can help!)_:
Comment by fdenke, posted on Jun 20, 2008 Before all else, I checked the paper feed path, and, after extracting a very small loose piece of paper, checked to make sure there are no obstructions, pieces of paper, or anything to keep a sheet of paper from passing all the way through the feed path.

More info regarding my above problem: Today, if I load paper into the feed tray and turn on the printer, at times the printer appears normally ready, (quickly going to apparently being ready without all the usual noise I used to hear), and without feeding a sheet of paper half way through the paper feed path (as it did before) when paper is already in the paper tray. At other times, I hear a lot of activity in the printer when it is first turned on, which ends up by feeding a sheet from the paper tray half way through the feed path before turning on the error light, and the “stuck” page has to be removed.

If I press the “Black - Start Copy" option on the 1315 printer, a sheet in the paper tray enters the feed path beyond the normal "stopping point" for beginning a print job, and the error indicator comes on. It then does a "scan", but the feed error prevents any printing, and the feed path has to be cleared.

If I turn on the printer without paper in the tray, and wait until the usual activity noise terminates, then put paper into the paper tray, and select to print some pages, the printer works fine until the print job is through. It then ejects the last page printed (as normal), waits a bit, then runs a blank page half way through the feed path, and we are back to square one.

    I have somewhat resolved my HP 1315 printer problem. I opened up the printer to observe what was happening, and found that before printing or copying, the printer often “cleans” its printer cartridges. To do this, the rollers used to move paper through the printer are also used to move the print cartridges back and forth over some cleaning pads (on the right side of the printer). The problem occurs when the roller that initially feeds a sheet of paper (also on the right side), becomes geared to the main rollers during this cleaning process. (I assume it should NOT be, until the cleaning process is over). At this point, the main rollers speed up, and this is the proper time for the sheet feed roller to engage a new sheet of paper. My “solution” is to wait until I hear the main rollers speed up, then push a sheet of paper into the sheet feed area to where it will be engaged by the sheet feed roller. At this point, the sheet is picked up, and all goes well, one sheet at a time for both printing and copying. If the print job is going to require more than one sheet, just put into the paper feed tray the exact number of sheets required, and all will go well until the end of the print job. (Feeding more sheets than required will cause the extra sheet to be mis-fed). Anyway, I can live with this until I buy a new printer.

    thanks--that seems to be working. Maybe something's wrong with the paper sensor, because now even though there's no paper, the red light's not on.
