Changing the pickup roller

Normal use with good media causes wear. The use of poor media might require more frequent replacement of the pickup roller. If the printer regularly mispicks (no media feeds through), you might need to change or clean the pickup roller. See Ordering parts and supplies to order a new pickup roller. CAUTION Failure to complete this procedure might damage the printer. 1. Turn off the printer, unplug the power cord from the printer, and then allow the printer to cool. 2. Open the print-cartridge...

Pages are coming out curled or wrinkled. Pages are coming out curled or wrinkled. Paper curl is inherent to the laser printing processes, and occurs when media is subjected to heat. Curl tends to relax as the paper cools while resting on a flat surface. Make sure that the media meets specifications detailed in the HP LaserJet Printer Family Media Guide. Media is curled or wrinkled when using the top output bin. Open the straight-through output door on the back of the printer to change the media...

Basic troubleshooting

When the product is connected to a correctly grounded power source, the LEDs on the control panel do not light and the main motor does not rotate. 1. Verify that the power outlet has the correct voltage. 2. Verify that the power cable is correctly plugged into the outlet and the printer. 3. Verify that the power switch is turned on. The power inlet switch cable assembly is defective. Replace the power inlet switch cable assembly. The printer turns on, but the motor doesn't rotate. When turned...
