Question about HP LaserJet 1100 Printer

2 Answers

Out of paper..

I bought a used 1100 several months ago, and it has been working just fine until now. Now the orange light blinks all the time and the printer message is that the printer is out of paper. It isn't out of paper. I've adjusted the paper, added more paper, opened the front door (but I don't know what I'm looking for), checked the connections, unplugged the printer and plugged it back in, and that's my complete repertoire.

Ok check if the sensor is blocked make sure there isnt a jam in the printer.
make sure it is config right on the cmputer and on the printer itsself
generaly printers dont usualy last more than 5-6 months.
trying giving the makers a call and se what they think.
if all else fails i think it might be time to update
hope this helps
cheers

Reset. Orange light blinks several times. Then Green. Then orange several times, then... on and on. Cannot reset. All ink cartridges have ink.


count the number of orange flashes in between the green light. two flashes = out of paper, 3=paper jam, 4=empty ink tank, 6=print head not installed, 7=print head defective, 8=waste ink tank is almost full

The orange light keeps blinking and won't go back


This could be signaling that the toner is empty. Replace the toner and see if the light goes back to green. Hope this helps.

I get a series of blinking orange lights and a green pause.


Hi Mike, the paper feed switch doesn't feed paper... it switches the paper source from the top feeder to the bottom tray. Do you have paper in both? How many times does the orange light flash in between the greens? That tells the error.
