How to reset hp laserjet 1200 printer

When I set to print ten copies to the printer, the first to seven copies, it prints ok but when it comes to eight, the paper jammed. I have to remove the paper and start again. Please can anyone help and tell me whats wrong with the printer. Do I need to service the printer?.

    How much paper do you have loaded in the Printer ? Load a full tray so there is sufficient pressure for feeding the sheets, as having few sheets, may cause jams.

    Very strange it jams on pg 8 every time. Might refer to this article and manually feed sheets thru to see reaction. No other suggestions except service it, and that could be more expensive than a new printer !

    Now, new problem occoured. After removing jammed paper, resume new printing. The printer keep on feeding the paper without printing until the paper jammed again. I have replace the cartridge with new but the problem still exist. If anyone had the experience with same problem before appreciate your help.

    Thanks.
  5. Hello ksiemb,

    I made an observation while the printer is printing. The first to seven, it is ok. When the 7th is still printing, half way, the roller pick up the eight(too early)and cause the paper jammed. Now it seem to me that the print que and the signal to pick up next paper does not synchronize.

    Please help.
