Question about HP LaserJet 2100 Printer

1 Answer

Printer not printing a red light comes on.

When a print job is sent from the computer the printer receives the job as is evident from the print job management screen; the printer responds and the rollers start up but then the red light comes on steady and nothing is printed. The job disappears off the job management screen however as if the job printed successfully.

Have changed the toner and checked as best as possible for any jams but still doesn't print. Connectivity seems fine and the printer worked with no probelms last week.

Try disconnecting data lead from printer to PC. Switch printer off wait a few seconds then back on.
If it starts up ok and comes online. Then put data cable back in and goes wrong as soon as it goes to print, the printer may be ok. As it could be getting confused with what it being sent to it.
Delete any print jobs from the PC and restart printer again to see if that helps.

It sounds like data is being received by the printer from an outside source.
Try disconnecting the printer from the computer system so it is a free standing printer. Power the printer ON and put in ONLINE if you do not get strange characters printing the print job is definitely from the computer system some place.

If you do not get the print jobs printing when the printer is disconnected from the computer system, it could be that the print jobs are being sent from the wrong driver or print queue on the system, you may need to try to identify who is sending the rogue print jobs.

After a ps print job is sent and printed by the


There is probably nothing wrong with the printer, but it may not be be receiving all the dope it needs. Usually the printer needs a CR/LF signal at the end of the file to print. If it doesn't get that it will assume that it hasn't got all the file and will hang. This may be a setting in the application producing the file, or a setting on the printer itself (i.e needing either a full CR/LF signal or just one of these). Don't like the idea that it doesn't print its own test page though....

I'd suggest reinstalling the printer driver.

In Start - Printers and Faxes, find the printer and delete the icon. Power off the printer and disconnect the cable from the printer to the PC. Restart your workstation and log in.

Stopped printing and shows a job queue light.


Ben_ndee, if you press the "Go" button do you receive a secondary error light combination?
If this is the only combination you receive, the error is indicating a problem in the laser/scanner assembly.
Many times disconnecting and reconnecting the scanner will eliminate the error condition but there is a very good chance the laser/scanner assembly is faulty and needs to be replaced.
The part number is RM1-4262-000.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
