I spent lots of time last night trying to get my printer to work - it did a couple times and now it won't print out again - trying to print from the computer to the printer.


IF THE PRINTER has any ALARM LIGHT. check for paper jam or BAD paper pick up roller not grabing the paper (clean or replace it).
If the printer doesn't blink ALARM. check if you have failed jobs in QUE; IF YES DELETE IT AND TRY TO PRINT AGAIN OR TRY UNINSTALL AND REINSTALL THE PRINTER DRIVER.

HP LaserJet 4100 for all applications in windows 7. When I go to print a document and click on print. The print screen exits, the print job doesn't processes, and the print queue stays empty. Noth


Ideas? Yes. I had this happen on an LJ 1000 while trying to print my tax return. I tried emptying the queue, removing power from the printer, etc, etc. What finally worked was to empty the queue (again), disconnect power from the printer, shut down the computer, plug in the printer again, restart the computer, queue up a print job again, and hit PRINT.
Hope this works for you

Printer won't print. I had to move the desk and everything was unplugged and now it won't print. It is on, checked as default, on-line, I think it may be the port.


  1. Background
    • HP provides details of the problem on its website. The problem usually occur on PC laptops or when printing across a network. HP offers several fixes for the problem.
    Software
    • First, check your Windows print queue and ensure the printer is not set as "Paused" or "Working Offline." This can often clear the problem and resume your printing.

    Resolution
    • The problem can also be caused by printer driver issues. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver. Connecting your printer directly to your computer using a parallel cable may solve the problem, but this may not be practical in all cases as many modern laptop computers do not have a parallel port.
Instructions
    • 1 "Power Cycle" Your printer. Shut down the printer, unplug the power cord from the socket, give it 5 minutes, plug it in again and turn it back on. Try to print.
    • 2 If the printer still won't process a job, shut down and restart your computer.
    • 3 Check your printer cable connections to the computer.
    • 4 Check the printer for any paper jams, check the trays, and also pull out the toner cartridge and/or remove any paper jam, if you find one. Put the cartridge back in. Then try to print.
    • 5 If after completing the steps above, the printer is still not working, click "Start," then "Settings," click "Printers," and the printer folder will open. Make sure your HP LaserJet 5 is selected as the default printer.
    • 6 Double-click your printer, and delete everything from the print queue, canceling all the print jobs. Close out the queue.
    • 7 Right-click on your printer icon and make sure it's not offline. If it is, then click "use this printer online."
    • 8 Right-click your printer, and click properties. Make sure the right port is selected for your LaserJet 5 Printer. If you are using a parallel cable, you are most likely using an LPT port; if USB, then look for a USB connection in the list. If the port connection is correct, try to print again.
    • 9 It's still not printing? Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Double-click "Programs and Features" or "add or remove programs," uninstall your Laserjet printer software, and restart your computer.
    • 10 Insert your Laserjet software and driver disk. Proceed to reinstall your printer software and drivers. Then test the printer again. If it is still not working, you probably will have to seek professional assistance.

Orange ink light blinks, printer will not print. Turned off, shut down computer, unplugged everything & replugged & restarted but did not fix problem.


Open the printer ink cartridge bay, and remove and re-insert the cartridge, it may be empty and need to be replaced.

The three lights on the printer. The first one will not quit blinking, so I can print anything. I tried shutting everything down, but it's still blinking.


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the printer head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Won't print, takes paper in, and sits blinking


I've seen this when the image has been too big - i.e. Too many megabytes. But it has to be really big 300+ MB in size.
Some times, cancelling the job, shutting the computer down and restarting it can make the print come out as the computer restarts. Doesn't always happen though. Try without cancelling the job and see if that works.
Let us know either way.

Won't print


Sounds like a piece of paper is stuck inside the machine. Open all access doors and check. Remove the printer cartridge and reinsert. Make sure the print job has been purged from the queue.

hi!

Try to cancel your document in the printers menu even if you restart the pc or the printers memory stores the previous command.

1.The idea is that printers has its own memory unless you cancel the document that you print.

e-mail me at wendel_tenebroso@yahoo.com if the problem persist

Printer locks up


  1. Click Start, Printers and Faxes and double-click on the Lexmark printer driver.
  2. Open the Printer menu and select Cancel All Documents. This will purge the print queue so as to allow the printer to print or uninstall the driver.
  3. If the print jobs are not removed from the queue, click Start, Run, type Net Stop Spooler, and press ENTER.
  4. Click Start, Shutdown, and select Restart. The documents or the print jobs should be removed.
If you are having difficulty deleting the print jobs in the printer spooler, do the following:
  1. Restart the PC in "safe mode". To do this:
    1. Click Start, Shut Down and select Restart.
    2. While the PC is restarting, press the F8 key on the keyboard. Note: Do not hold down the key down, but be aware that you may need to press it several times.
  2. When in safe mode, click Start, My Computer.
  3. Double-click on the (C:) drive.
  4. Double-click on the Windows folder.
  5. Double-click on the System32 folder.
  6. Double-click on the Spool folder.
  7. Double-click on the Printers folder.
  8. Select the contents of this folder and click Delete.
