Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

Have been using this HP LaserJet4Plus for a long time now with nary a problem. Just today, after it printed a few pages, it came up with the error ME (flashing) FEED DL. Now when I try to print, one page comes through with just crazy images on half the page. I have tried opening up the printer and searching for any type of jam and found nothing at all. As a last resort, I replaced the toner cartridge but still it flashes ME followed by the letters (not flashing) FEED DL. I have shut down the printer, unplugged the printer and tried the Cold Reset. I have shut down and restarted the computer as well but that didn't work either. Anyone? Help? Thanks!

ME FEED DL is displayed when there is a request for a manually fed envelope.
The DL is the envelope size that it is looking for.
Put the aforementioned envelope in tray 1 and press ONLINE to print.

By the way, a DL envelope is 110 × 220mm. It is used on a 220V printer.
If you don't have one, cut a piece of paper that size and humor the printer by putting it in tray 1. Let it print and see if that gets rid of your problem. If not since you already tried Cold Reset, try NVRAM reset. Hold down JOB CANCEL while power cycling the printer.
Remember, this will set page count to zero and all other SERVICE MODE settings to defaults. But it will set tray 1 to LETTER.

HP PSC 1350v Check Print Cartridge Light


Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge (office depot) I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge.  You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you.  And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful.  But, if you persist, you can get it to work.
