Question about HP LaserJet 1320 Printer
duplex printing on my 1320 has been working fine for 4 years. The last couple days, however, there are regular paper jams, when the first printed page moves back into the printer for the second side to be printed on it.
The paper moves only about 3/4ths back into the printer and then the transport wheels or rolls can't transport it further. Looks like they have no grip.
I tried cleaning all wheels / rolls I could see, but I don't seem to the ones responsible for moving the paper back into the printer for duplex printing.
Unfortunately I can't find any info in the user manual or hp web pages.
Can anyone help?
Managed to solve this myself: I disassembled the printer and noticed there was a paper jammed in the duplex tray. Rolls were all ok, but the paper blocked the use of the duplex pathway. For disassembly help check the HP 1320 service manual, which you can find on the net as a PDF.

Hello, This problem is commonly caused by what is known as the (DPA) duplex pendulem assembly. The function of th DPA is to switch the direction of the paper in order to print the duplex side. The DPA sometimes will bind and not work properly which results in the paper jam you have described. See Photo Below.

In order to change this part, the printer needs to be dis-assembled. AN HP Certified Technician would be best to do this repair.
