HP LaserJet  4L error message

Posted on 2000-04-15
Last Modified: 2013-12-15
My HP 4L started giving erroneous "Out of Paper" messages in the middle of a print job. When this happens I just have to open and close the paper tray to resume printing ... until the next error message, and so on. The lower the paper stack in the paper tray, the more often the error message. It is like some internal sensor misbehaves. Is there anything I can do myself short of carrying the printer to the local HP service center?

feed tires need to be changed or cleaned. Cleaning will probably work for a short time. Use something like windex to clean the tires. Don't use acohol. It dries the rubber and makes it not last as long.

I would contact any local computer store that sells and services HP printers.

What I meant was, How can I myself do the cleaning job . Where are those tires located, are they accessible without any special tools.

The tire is located on the bottom of the printer. If you pull the paper tray out look on the printer directly above the tray you should see the roller. You may have to tip the printer up on end or it's side.

This seems to be a very common error related to the Samsung printer driver. First, this is the error we're talking about: Log: System Type: Error Event: 7000 Agent Time: 3:37:24 am 22-Apr-09 Event Time: 6:07:24 pm 21-Apr-09 UTC Source: Se…
