Question about HP Photosmart 8050 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

HP Photosmart 8050 printer won't load paper.

Everytime I use the printer I get a message that I need to load paper although there is paper in the feeder. I've been told that it can be either dust in the printer or the rollers need to be replaced. I'm willing to take the printer apart, but only if those are the only possiblities. i just want to know if this is a common problem with this printer.

    yes,

    my printer continues to say load paper, or printer out of paper and I've tied 1- to -100 sheets and have no success. I've also blown out the area and made sure the feed wheel was not stuck or something and though I hate to assume, I'm guessing the micro switch is not sending the correct signal.

    Help, not even gone through one ink cartridge yet and I thought I finally got past the disposable printer stage callcal

    printer only loads paper intermittantly, makes no difference if it is 8.5x11 or in 4x6 cartridge. Sometimes it detects it sometimes not - help

Hello SuperVicky, rollers on the printer do not go that often on the other hand the usage of the printer is a factor ie how much printing you do or age if old. Normally paper roller should allow you print quite a few thousands before wearing out. what i will advise is to look keenly in the printer shuold in case you have any particules in the paper path of the printer or after paper jam it is possible to have a residue left in the printer. all these can be a problem.

Hi there it doesn't sound like a common problem to me it's not worth repairing it because it'll cost you double what it's worth brand new buy another one inkjet printers are cheap sorry but unfortunately that's the only solution. sourcing parts for printers can be very difficult and expensive too

Told that this is a PCL5 type printer and can be used as a plug n'play, and no need to install a driver. It does work, but will not hold the programming. I only want to use Tray1.


the thing is that with plug and play equipment, when you plug it into the pc and turn it on Usb connections) , there is a small message just above the task bar which says installing driver for printer
it is the way that the pc recognizes the printer in a port
it may be best it you go to the control panel ,printers and devices , add a printer and install it properly

My printer says Turn power off and turn on again, I've done this several times and it keeps returning to the same message


I seems that your printer's main problem is on paper feeder unit. Try to re assemble the feeder unit and find out any forain substance on it , try to clean all unite and re assemble it.
I think you will get rid from your problem.
Thank you.

Error message to "Load Paper"


Push something thicker than a plain sheet of paper through. Cut a side of a manilla folder into a 8.5"x11" and let the printer try to grab it during a copy. After doing it's normal "grab the right side until it's skewed and stop", continue to try to push it through.

The printer was printing OK. Suddenly the paper refeed into the printer. I removed the paper but now the printer is not feeding paper. I think I may have move or disloged a sensor in the paper feeder...


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:


1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.



If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Message window shows "load mp


The printer tells you to insert a letter format paper in the mp (multi purpose) feeder (the manual tray).
If you press the GO key the print probably proceeds with print job (if has the paper loaded in mp feeder)

Load mp feeder error optra t 642 printer


I received this message when I was trying to print a pdf file. I attempted messing with the positioning of green paper guide to no avail. My co-worker suggested I uncheck the Choose paper source by PDF page size box on the Print pop-up box. This did the trick.

I keep getting a Load MP Feeder Letter message. I can't clear what to do?


MP Feeder refers to Multi Purpose Feeder or Manual Paper Feeder or just plain bypass feeder. There should be a door that folds down to gain access to your MP Feeder tray. Try loading letter size paper on this tray.

I have a Canon PIXMA MP 600. The paper doesn't feed properly anymore. Everytime I get an error: Auto sheet feeder. There is no paper load paper. I checked everything and there is no paper jammed. Is it...


Greetings,

If your are not loading from the ADF, check the settings and see if it is set to get paper from the Auto-Sheet Feeder.

Sometimes having an equipment repaired costs more than buying a new one.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.
