Step one: Reset the product

  • Without turning the product off, remove the power cord from the back of the product.
  • Wait 30 seconds and then plug the power cord into the back of the product.
  • If the product is not already on, use the On button to turn it on.
Step two: Check the condition of the paper and reload it
  • Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, curled, wrinkled, or bent.
NOTE:Use only plain, white, unused paper in the product until the issue is resolved.
  • Make sure that all the paper is the same size and type. Because only one type of paper can be used in the product at a time, paper types should never be mixed.
  • Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
  • Make sure that the stack of paper to be loaded in the product contains no fewer than 10 and no more than 25 sheets of paper.
NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the product.
  • Insert the stack of paper into the product and gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper. Make sure that the paper is completely inserted into the product and can be picked up by the paper rollers.
  • Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, try loading different brands of paper and different types of paper, one type at a time, into the product and then try printing again.
  • If the issue persists, continue with the next step.
Step three: Adjust the paper settings in the print driver
  • The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
  • Open a document in the program being used to print.
  • Click File , click Print , and then click Properties . The product Properties dialog box appears.
  • Click the Paper/Quality tab.
  • Choose the appropriate paper size from the Size is drop-down menu.
  • Choose the appropriate paper type from the Type is drop-down menu.
  • Click OK and then click OK again to print the document..
  • If the issue is not resolved, continue with the next step.
Step four: Clean the rollers
  • Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
  • Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
  • Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
  • Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
  • Close the access door and plug in the power cord.

Hp psc 1401 printer driver issue for windows 7


You have downloaded the driver but have you installed it. I would check to see that your printer is using the new driver. Here's a link to a Microsoft site that details how to install printer drivers. Hope this helps and I'm not just telling you something you already know. Good luck!

My Hp 1401 or 1400 all in one printer's software will not work on my new vista computer. I somehow changed the color to print a black and white photo, can't remember how I done it. Now everything prints...


  1. If you need to change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on the software application, this button might be called Properties, Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
  2. Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available in the Paper/Quality, Finishing, Effects, Basics, and Color tabs. (Color Tab should allow you to change from only Black printing)
  3. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.

Printer loads multiple pages


You may be using a cheap (thin) paper weight. Try a thicker gauge paper. Could be dirt or dust in the feeder track. Try vacumming it out and try again.
