Question about HP Photosmart 7450 InkJet Printer
My 7450 when turned on light is green flashing. then feeds out a sheet blank, & starts a second sheet out until about half way & stops. Then light flashes red. I follow paper jam instructions to remove paper & restart but cycle repeats. Sometimes it will print an e-mail page but always stops when it feeds a blank page & then blinks red again with half of a blank page in out feed. I followed the manual paper jam instructions over & over including unplugging it & letting it sit for several minutes. I have also tried removing the program & reloading with the furnished disc to no avail. Any Ideas? TKS
Guys .. the same problem again ... I solved it putting almost the full capacity of sheets into the paper feed, and when the print begins, push a little bit de hole package of sheets inside .... the printing should work just fine ... but ... it doesnt work for long docs, because, when the pile of sheets starts to became smaller, the problem cames back again .....
and for the record .. it is my last hp ... too.

I have the EXACT same problem with my photosmart 7450. after spending hours dealing with foreign customer support i was told that it was a "hardware malfunction," which just doesn't seem to make sense. the machine prints fine, but always sucks up an extra sheet of paper which stops half-way through the machine. there is no jam, the sheet just stops. for instance, if i print a 3 page document it will print fine, but then it will always suck up an extra 4th sheet which stops half-way through. the only way to make the machine operable is to manually remove the sheet, unplug the machine, and then plug it back in.
i was told to take the machine into my nearest local HP store to be fixed. when i asked how much it would cost, i was told that it would be comparable to buying a new machine. i can't figure out how to fix it, so i will probably have to end up buying a new printer. however, i certainly won't be buying another HP.
