HP LaserJet 1100

Printer whines when printing anything.

    Here's the quote directly from the user:

    "It makes the sound while the paper is running through, however, after the paper has fed through completely and the printer is winding down, you can usually hear something that sounds like gears grinding inside the printer."

    Many thanks for the help!

    Most of the time when I've looked at the cost to repair vs. the cost of a new "personal" laser printer, the difference is so small that, especially if the printer is out of warranty, you might as well buy a new printer.

    Many thanks for the help/information!!!

Does it only whine when it paper is passing through it? Does it whine before the paper is fed in and after it's ejected? If so, could possible be the fuser unit. If it only whines when paper is passing through, it may be the paper passing between a worn-out feed roller and separator pad, which are high-mortality items on this model. Can you supply any more details?

    Sounds like the issue is with the paper feed mechanism. Unfortunately, that's something that would need to be addressed by am HP authorized technician (like me).

    Compare the cost of parts and service against replacing the printer. It's a good personal printer, but it's also in the neighborhood of 6-7 years old. Food for thought if nothing else.

    Let me know how it turns out!

Continuous garbage text when connected to pc

In reading this HP forum I have found many other LaserJet 1100 owners who are trying to do the same thing as you.

Many of them recommend various cable solutions from Sewell. When you contact Sewell, make sure to specify your printer model, and ask what specific cables and/or adapters you need to make it work vis USB. They sound quite knowledgeable, and seem to have dealth with this before.

HP LASERJET 1100 WONT PRINT

go to Start, Settings, Control panel, printers and faxes is your printer there? is there a checkmark? no, then right click and set as default, put your mouse over it does it say Ready? no, then change cable.

 

send test page, it should print, if not the USB or Parrallel input of your printer has a problem.
