Plastic flags in the output bin can get stuck

HP LaserJet... • Answered on Jan 05, 2020


Firstly, is the exit bin full of paper? If it is, just remove it.

If not, then it's going to be a sensor that recognizes the paper amounts in the exit tray. Check for broken plastics and possibly stuck plastic flaps in the exit tray.

If it's neither of those, try turn it off, unplug, then reverse.

Other than that, if no go, then it's an internal sensor issue. At that point, probably the best bet is to replace as repair costs would outweight a new unit cost most likely.

Hi Adam,
I suspect that you are talking about the tray 2 pick up roller. Here are the directions for that:
1.)Remove paper tray
2.)Unlock left locking tab and rotate forward untill bushing slides off
3.)Remove black plastic roller retaining bracket
4.)Slide roller to the left untill right side of shaft clears the bushing
5.)Lift roller out of printer
6.)Place spring loaded end of roller shaft into left housing
7.)Slide roller to the right and rotate until roller locks into pickup shaft
8.)Reinstall black plastic roller retaining bracket. Left side first.
9.)Reinstall left bushing and lock into place

Let me know if you where sucessfull,

Please check the cartridges it see if the toner is finish,clean the print head because it may be block up or you can replace it if it is damage.

That sounds like to me that the pick up rollers are not pulling the paper. Replace the rollers.

Toner Cartridge Drive need to be change

To remove paper jam. Just remove the toner cartridge and pullout jammed paper. If still coming paper jammed error message. Switch of the printer and the printer will roll over the paper jammed.

Changing of fuser drum is required if the print out came with the black strips. This happens when you print large volume of printing jobs.

Most times a 49.xxxx error on an HP printer is caused by either the print driver, firmware or the print job itself.

If it happens when printing a PDF file try sending the file to the printer as an image.

Upgrade the print driver and the firmware.

You may need to disconnect the printer from the pc or network, power it off and pull the plug for a couple of minutes to clear the error.
If it's a network printer it would be a good idea to check the printer queue for any jobs still in it and delete them before powering the printer up again.

This could be a setting on the printer, in the driver on your computer, or the document you are printing. First, try printing a different document and see if the problem persists. Reset the printer to factory default settings, also referred to as a cold reset. HP has instructions on their website here: HP LaserJet 2300 Printer Series Resetting the Printer Cold Reset You can also go into the printer driver on your computer and reset settings there, or uninstall and reinstall the printer.

Power off and then hold down check mark button as you power up. This resets the paper settings.

Must be an aftermarket or refilled toner cartridge. These toner cartridges have a chip on them that must be changed when refilling or remanufacturing the cartridge. It looks like you got a cartridge where the chip has not been changed. I would return it for another cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Just lift up the Toner Access Door, take out the toner and replace with a new toner cartridge.

Your problem description is not clear, but based on experience I bet that your printer is taking three sheets of paper at a time. The pickup roller in tray 2 and the separation pad in the tray are probably worn out. They are easy enough to replace. You can verify that printer works properly by printing from manual feed tray and if that works ok then above solution is likely your fix.
