Check the paper stops in the drawer.
If they are off just a hair, it won't think that is has letter (or legal) size paper in it.
If anything, take the paper out, slide the stops back and forst a few times (like clearing it out) and then set it where it needs to be. Replace the drawer, and try printing.

    You also want to check the paper type setting in the printer. If it is set for anything besides plain paper, it will behave the same way.

Yellow light blinking and I cannot print


Most likely, the light that is blinking is the Resume light.

When this happens, you should check the following conditions:

The printer might be out of paper.
Place paper in the input tray, and then press the Resume button.

There might be a paper jam.

The printer cartridges are not installed correctly.

My HP 610C printer yellow light is blinking after the paper is taken in. The power light is steady. Therafter the yellow light blinks continuosly. Please help.


Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  • Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  • Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  • If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  • Remove the rear access door.
  • Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  • Replace the rear access door.
  • Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  • Print the document.

My printer do not print any file


I usually face the following problem while giving printing command to my printer:\r\n
1. On clicking print from file meno the printer does not print and the yellow light upwards starts blinking.
2. Reinstalled the printer after inserted the Printer Software *C6464-10018* v 41 *MacOS 8.1*USB
but printing did not start from this even.
3. sometimes earlier I experienced that only 2-3 lines get printed and after that the upper yellow light again started blinking.
4.Some times the printer goes on sucking papers and prints as the signs of playing cards or some other abnormal shapes lining etc.
Please be kind enough to solve my all such problem and if possible point out step by step action to be taken by me during such an eventuality at a later stage also.

HP LaserJet 1018: paper will feed, but no content can be printed


just try to print the self test of the hp 1018 printer.self pest is printed directly from the printer not by giving command from the printer. press any one of the button on the printer and hold it till the light blinks.leave the button when light starts blinking .place the paper in the tray.as soon as you leave the button .a self page will be printed..that is self test.if the self test comes out proper that means its your driver software problem.but if self test also has problem then its the clear problem of dust collected on the printer reading lens due to not using it for 2 years.so the printer needs servicing. get it serviced at local printer repair shop .

c00109831.gifc01272271.gifc00109834.gif The printer might be waiting to complete a print job or to receive data from your computer.

  2. Press the resume button.
The printer might be out of paper.

Solution

  1. Load paper in the paper tray.

Brother HL 5150D not printing unless I keep pressing Go


its not the problem of toner cartridge.its the problem of gears which pulls the paper they r worn out or may be cracked internally.exactly what happens when you u give the print for the first time the printer gets command and the gears starts spinning and the paper gets pulled because it gets a pressure internally and after 2 pages that pressure gets low and it stops pulling the paper.some times changing the paper thickness solves the problem temporvarily .i mean use the thick quality paper instead of thin.

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
