HP LaserJet III feed problem
I am having a problem feeding paper into an HP
LaserJet III printer. I recently pulled this
printer out of the basement and am trying to get
it working again. I purchased a legal tray and
am trying to get it to work with letter size
paper. I think or thought that letter would work
in a legal tray.
Ok so I place the paper into the tray at the
front, place lid on the tray and insert into
front of printer. Now, everytime I hit reset,
the printer pulls the top sheet in about a
centimeter. After about ten resets, the page
finally hits what I believe to be the sensor and
it pulls it in the rest of the way and prints. I
must do this for every page I want to print, not
just the first.
Is there anything I can do here. Do I need a
letter tray or is there a setting somewhere I
have to modify?
Thanks for the reply. I did look at the roller.
The big rubber one in the middle . It's
completely round accept for the side that sits on
the paper. It is flat. A friend of mine tells me
this can happen if the rubber sits pressed
against something for an extended period of time.
Will I need a new roller? I don't imagine rubber
revitalizer will fix this as it's totally flat.
If so, any ideas where I can purchase a roller
LaserJet II/III repair kit for this problem then.
I think that's what I'll do rather than the
Thanks very much for your help.
