When HP J4580 all in one printer problem

J4580
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

When this all in one printer receives a file to print, the paper feeds in part way and then no printing occurs.  The power button is flashing (as usual when there is a print queue).   I ran the HP Print and Scan Doctor program and the result is that it indicates that the device is an issue.  Help please

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Clean the rollers and the rear access door

  1. Gather the following materials:

    • A clean, lint-free cloth, or any cloth that will not come apart or leave fibers

    • Distilled, filtered, or bottled water (tap water might damage the product)

  2. Press the Power button () to turn off the product.

  3. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.

  4. Press in the tab on the left side of the rear access door, and then pull the door away from the product to remove it.

  5. Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with bottled or distilled water, and then squeeze any excess liquid from the cloth.

  6. Press the cloth against the rollers and rotate them upwards with your fingers. Apply a moderate amount of pressure to remove any dust or dirt buildup.

When HP J4580 all in one printer problem

Sandy,

  I cleaned the rear rollers as you suggested with no change to the problem.   When I use the printer as a copy machine, the paper is feed in correctly and the unit copies the document with no issue.   I also can scan correctly.   The issue is on the printer operation.   When I send a file to be printed, my computer screen opens a small 'printer' window showing that the printer is printing.   The paper is taken into the printer and then stops with about 1 inch showing from the top rollers and no printing happens.  The 'on' button continues to flash and the word "printing" is shown in the small LED screen on the printer.   Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
