Hp HP DeskJet 1100

HP1100


Hi,

Does anyone else with the HP1100 have the same prob ?

The HP1100 keeps feeding two or three pages at a time, if I'm just printing
on one page only it's no prob, but on duplex on both sides, it causes a
prob, is there any way to solve this prob, have you come across this as well
?

(I've cleaned the pick up roller).

Any help much appreciated.

Doug.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

Site is undergoing a massive renovation soon. We're in the process of finalizing everything. Kit offerings will more than double. The HP1100 kit will be one of the new offerings. If anybody needs one before the new site is up, email me and I'll help you. We've already pre-sold a few without any advertising.

HP had a repair kit to correct the multiple sheet pick up. The kit is no longer available but just as well since it did not work. My HP1100 works great so long as I only put one sheet in at a time. Sorry I can't help you. Cleaning the pick up rollers didn't help either. - Anonymous
Unfortunately it was a bum design. The repair kits helped for a little while, but if you stretch (add tension to) the spring behind the sep pad, it helps a lot. :-) PCRMike

Disagree. Has nothing to do with spring tension. The material they made the separation pad from was defective and over time or with exposure to sunlight caused it to harden and would not do its job of separting the paper. New replacement pad (not the free fix) used new material which worked. The kit on this site has the new pad, plus the sub pads.

No argument here about the factory crap, er, material. I was not clear when I pointed to the tension, as I should have stated that the tension helps when installing a new kit. You are 100\% right, the stretch is no band aid, it won't help at all on an old pad. Some printers will continue to do it occasionally even with a new pad and sub pads, but it will help to prevent it if you do it with a new pad, sub pad, and roller install. My apologies dzcompute, and thank you for pointing out my error. :-) PCRMike

I have an HP1100 that will only print a line of happy faces or gobbly gook if I print a test page or from Wordpad or Notepad. I've powered down the printer and computer for several minutes but that doesn't work. Also, it will attempt to print several docs when I only want to print one.

Simply delete and reinstall your printer driver.

I should've mentioned that I did delete and reinstall my printer driver, but to no success. I swapped hard drives with another laptop and then tried printing...............it must've been hardware related as it now prints. - Anonymous
Or a bad cable. :-) PCRMike
