    My hp officejet dl 55 xi has a mind of it's own!

    When I try to copy, I get the message:

    open carriage door, clear paper jam, and then press enter
    I do, -- no paper jam--, close and press enter - then

    it shows copying 1 of 1, but nothing happens.

    press enter, it shows busy & goes back to copying 1 of 1
    press copy, it shows busy & goes back to copying 1 of 1

    sometimes it goes beep, beep, beep when buttons are pushed.

    It cannot be shut off with the power button, it must be unplugged when it is doing this.

    Help!!!!!

You can also try feeding a piece of A4 card backward through the mechanism. Be careful not to get too close to the right hand side as you could damage teh paper sensor. Tip the machine on it's back and gently feed the card backward through the rollers ath front and between the main feed roller and the smaller pinch rollers. Once throught the pinch rollers, pushe the card steadiley back. If you meet a bit more resistance be carefull. Pushing too hard may cause more damage - you may be pushing against the sensor paddle. Move the card left a little a keep trying. You may find a paper clip, piece of paper, old coin, toy soldier or many other things fall out of the back.

Benn40, You didn?t say but I?m assuming you?re getting a status code error, which indicates where the printer thinks the jam is located: E2 = copy paper has misfed; refer to page 36 for clearing instructions. A1 or A2 = single pass feeder; refer to page 37 & 38 for clearing instructions. If you don?t have your manual you can download a copy from the Xerox site here: http://download.support.xerox.com/pub/docs/XD155df/userdocs/any-os/en/newxd.pdf As was mentioned in an earlier post you?re going to have to carefully scan the paper path for paper remnants that may be covering your sensor. If you?re positive nothing is blocking the path then its likely a sensor or perhaps a controller board has failed. That will likely require a trip to the local authorized Xerox repair shop. Hope this helps and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

When I go to print the printer pulls the paper over half way down in the printer before it prints so the whole top half of the paper is blank.

I'm sure you've taken a hammer to your printer long ago, but I think this will fix the problem if you haven't. I went crazy with my hp3930 - it always thought it had a paper jam no matter what I did to convince it otherwise. I did the restart/on and off/cancel jobs bit - none of that mattered. Here's the deal - the HP3930 is a really wierd printer. If you load the paper in normally - IT WILL NOT WORK CORRECTLY - it will intake a bunch of sheets instead of 1 at a time, if you can get it to print at all. The solution - don't give it too much paper and don't put the edge of the paper stack very far into the tray. Just put it in far enough for the printer to be able to pick up the paper - any farther and this printer won't work for you.

Look closly to see if a bit of paper (or paper scrap/dust) has built up around the paper feed sensor. If so clean it and see if that helps. Zaak

ML-1860. What does red light indicate?

The presence of a red light on the printer can indicate different things depending on its behavior and the specific model. Here are some common reasons for a red light on the Samsung ML-1860:
  1. Error or Issue: If the red light is solid or blinking, it might indicate an error or issue with the printer. This could be related to a paper jam, low toner, a cover not properly closed, or any other hardware problem.
  2. Low Toner: In some cases, a red light might indicate that the printer's toner is running low or needs to be replaced. Check the printer's control panel or software utility for any low toner warnings.
  3. Printer Offline: If the red light is on, and the printer is not responding to print commands, it might be offline or not properly connected to the computer or network.
  4. General Status Indicator: Some printers have a red light that serves as a general status indicator. This light might be on during normal printer operation and is not necessarily indicating an error.
To determine the specific reason for the red light on your Samsung ML-1860 printer, follow these steps:
  1. Check Printer Display: If your printer has a display panel, check if any error messages or warnings are displayed. The display can provide valuable information about the printer's status.
  2. Check the User Manual: Refer to the printer's user manual or documentation for information about the meaning of the red light and troubleshooting steps.
  3. Inspect Printer: Physically inspect the printer for any paper jams, open covers, or other visible issues that might be causing the red light.
  4. Check Toner Level: Check the printer's control panel or software utility to see if the toner level is low or depleted. If necessary, replace the toner cartridge with a new one.
  5. Ensure Connectivity: If the printer is connected to a computer or network, ensure that the connections are secure, and the printer is set to "online" mode.
  6. Restart Printer: Try restarting the printer by turning it off and unplugging it from the power source. Wait for a minute, then plug it back in and turn it on again

Red light is on. It is not blinking, it is solid on. no paper jam, all doors are closed. I took the cartridges out went back and force with them, and put them back. Help !, the warrenty just expired last...

if there is no paper in the printer the red light will stay until you put some on it, make sure that when putting paper it goes all the way until the end and the red light will turn green, then you can print.

PROBLEM: Paper Jam. XANTE 1200, Tabloid size, B&W, Printer —Red light blinking fast indicating paper jam upfront. If you checked everything, trays, ink cartridge etc., and see no paper jam anywhere, take the top cover off and look inside the (head) for the jammed paper! This printer is problem free.

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.

Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.
