Question about HP LaserJet 1100 Printer
There is either a paper jam or the printer thinks there is a paper jam, which could be a problem with the door interlock switch or the printer not recognizing the toner cartridge. It could also mean an issue with the formatter card. Open the toner door, remove the cartridge, and take a look inside at the paper-clip like springs which make contact with the metal contacts on the toner cartridge. Sometimes they can get bent on one side or bent down and not make contact with the cartridge. Straighten it out if it looks suspicious and reinsert the cartridge and see if the light goes away. Press in hard on the toner door to make sure the door interlock is working. If the motor turns when you first power on or when you open and close the toner door, the sensors and flags are probably in the right position, so it is probably not a jam issue. If the motor does not turn, then the sensor or flags might be an issue. The most common is the exit center in front of the fuser in the back.
