  • Paper Jams

The most common problems with any type of printer are Paper Jams. The reasons behind this are: your printer may be dirty, wrong paper type is used and may be the rollers on the printer that feed the paper through its pathway are worn down. To fix these issues, you should clean your printer periodically, use the correct paper type and replace the rollers. As per the HP concern, the rollers are easily accessible, but you have to totally tear down other HP printer models to get the rollers.

  • Faded Printing

If you are getting faded printed pages, then there will be three reasons which are: The printer is getting low toner, the printer density is set too low and Economode printing is turned on. First, check the current settings of your printer. If Economode is active then turn it off and also set the print density higher and if the toner is low then you have to remove the cartridge and shake it to redistribute the toner. This will temporarily resolve the problem until you change the cartridge.

  • Ghosting

Ghosting is a term in which you will get your print properly but it will be much lighter copy of the image and it also prints elsewhere. This issue occurs due to the problem with the power supply to your printer. You should check your printer’s power outlet. Ghosting is also caused due to the consumable printer parts like drum etc are near the end of their life. All the consumable part of printers is for a definite time-period, so you also have to change your HP printer’s part to eliminate ghosting.

  • Toner Smears

If you are experiencing that words and images comes of the paper when you are touching the paper then may be the fuser assembly is damaged or at the end of its life. No one recommend repairing the fuser, the best way is to get the new one by replacing it. This issue may also happen due to the issues in toner cartridge. May be Toner Cartridge is defective and letting too much toner out at one time. Sometimes, so toner spilled in the printer so you also have to clean it out.

  • 4 error

This error indicates that your HP printers have problems with the power supply. If your HP printer is connected to a UPS then disconnect it and then plug it directly into the wall outlet. A printer should never be plugged into a UPS because the UPS can be damaged by the un-necessary power supplies that keep the fuser assembly warm.

  • Printer Driver

There are some of the new operating systems released that required new drivers to be loaded for your existing HP printers. But there are lots of printers that don’t have driver for every OS. So in this case, you have to consult the printer manual and find that which printer driver is compatible to your OS.

  • Printer is printing from the wrong paper tray

You have first look on the printing PC and then on the printer. If the application which is running in your PC for printing then you also have to check out the configuration. Also make sure that the paper sizes in the control panel match the paper trays.

  • Printers picks up all the paper

There is one more issues in HP printer that is sometimes Printers also picks up all the paper rather than selecting one sheet. To fix this issue, you should order and install a new pad without repairing the printer. May be your paper is wet due to humidity. You should assure that the paper is properly stored.

  • 79 Error

This error comes out with the deficiency in network print server. When fixing a 79 error, you have to first open the printer folder from the start menu on the printer server and make sure that there are nothing left or pending. It can also indicate a failure of a printer add-on component, such as an MIO card or a RAM module. You have to remove and then add back the add-ons.

  • Trouble printing onto envelopes

This issue can cause many problems for HP printers. You should choose the envelopes that are close to 20-lb paper in weight and thickness. You should also make sure that adhesive on the envelopes is capable to withstand the heat that the fuser puts out to keep the printing the page.
