I am back to square one where I did not find HP’s instructions helpful see my previous post. My printer won’t print unless I turn the computer off, then on again. No paperjam and the print cartridege doesnt come to the middle. The odds favor a cartridge problem. Try reading this post and the answer to it:

Thanks for any feedback. Uninstall Acrobat Reader and then go to the Programs folder and delete any Acrobat folders that may have been left behind.

On the bottom left hand corner there is a button “Start”. A cheap and charming color laser printer A cheap and charming color laser printer by Dan Ackerman. I did uninstall and then reinstall Acrobat Reader and deleted Acrobat folders left in my Programs folder.

There is likely a statistical probability of using more yellow. They prey on our fear of sleepless nights trying to fix potentially pervasive system problems on our computer,introduced by an incompatible driver.

Prknter just purchased a new iMac and now my printer will only print one line of gibberish on multiple sheets no matter what I try to get it to print; this includes test pages. So I bought a new Canon color printer. I have gone through the different trouble shooting tips and still no luck, suggestions?


Printer will print text only in tiny compressed characters – maybe only 4 or 6 pt. Some pages print and some come out blank.

Anyone have a clue? It will print only one page, but will not drop it completely down in the tray and then the lights start blinking?????

Pginter I tried to install the driver from the CD that came with the printer, Windows warned that the driver was ‘not digitally signed’, and that the Windows Logo testing failed to verify its compatability. The checks are new – Anonymous. All the lights are on an no error messages appear.

I don’t recall the DJ series having an ink drop shaped light. No belts are broken, all the lights flash constantly and the printer won’t work. I sent 1 page to print 2 times and then another page to print 3 times and left the room ;rinter it printed.

The separation pad is opposite the middle roller, you can find it by removing the back panel, note that some of what look like rollers are actually guides, then rollers all have a rubber surface. I feed in the paper and hit the button.

If that does not help, you might want to actually try a new Printer Cable, in case 8812c old cable is starting to fail So HP says that I have the correct driver, and my computer says that I have a printer, I just can’t seen to get the two together to make my printer work. Can post or send privately. I am not sure what else to do.

I did all of the Toolbox Tasks, and then replaced the color cartridge, did all of the tasks again, and still no yellow. Use prinrer dry Q-Tips to dry off all the electrical contacts after cleaning. Check the adjustment of the tray guides. They cannot be be removed unless the case is removed. The rollers visible when the cartridge access door is open typically don’t cause feed problems. I hope to buy a new printer someday.

Or can you load LP1 to that if you have a cable. Today when printing pages off the internet, the print is either about 5 inches high or all squashed over to one side of the paper. I had that hunch.
