Message: 13 Paper Jam HP LASERJET IID, IIID Printers

13 Paper Jam HP LaserJet IID, IIID Printers Paper jams can occur in these printers when using the "automatic manual feed" as opposed to explicitly putting the printer in manual feed mode. The use of "automatic manual feed" is not a supported feature, nor is it a suggested procedure. This procedure is known to cause problems, particularly when using the lower cassette as the manual feed slot because it is more difficult to align the paper properly when it is pulled in from the lower input slot. Paper is the only print media that should be fed from the lower input slot and other types of media may not only cause jamming, but also permanent printer damage.

Message: 13 Paper Jam HP LASERJET 4, 4M, 4Plus, 4MPLus, 4P, 4MP Printers

13 Paper Jam HP LaserJet 4, 4M, 4Plus, 4Mplus, Printers Paper is jammed in the paper path or the paper jam sensor at the rear of the fusing assembly may be stuck, causing a false paper jam warning.

To prevent further jams, verify the rear door is closed securely. A false paper jam message will occur if the printer's back door is open. If message persists, the printer could have a defective paper jam sensor and service would be required.

  • The printer received more data (soft fonts, macros or graphics) than it can fit into its internal memory. Press Continue to resume printing. Purchase additional printer memory or reduce the amount of data. Data can be reduced by using fewer soft fonts and macros, smaller graphics, and a lower resolution. A repair is Not required.

Message: 20 Mem Overflow HP LaserJet IIIP, III, IIID, IIISI, 4, 4M, 4Plus, 4MPLus, 4Si, 4Si MX, 4P, 4mp Printers

  • 20 Mem Overflow
  • HP LaserJet IIIP, III, IIID, IIISI, 4, 4M, 4Plus, 4Mplus, 4Si, 4Si MX, 4P, 4MP Printers
  • The printer received more data from the computer than can fit in its available user memory. You may have tried to transfer too many macros or soft fonts, or graphics that were too complex. Press SHIFT and Continue to print the transferred data (data loss may result), then simplify the print job or install additional memory.

NOTE: Without additional memory, the HP LaserJet III family printers have some limitations when using large point sizes in scaleable fonts. This limitation also depends on the number of scaleable fonts per page and the font characteristics.

Message: 21 Error HP LaserJet IIP, IIP+, II, IID Printers

21 Error HP LaserJet IIP, IIP+, II, IID Printers The printer is unable to process very complex data fast enough for the print engine. Multiple addressing of single pixels, too many different fonts or characters in a document or too many cursor position addresses per document will cause this error. Press Continue to resume printing. Repair is not required.

Workarounds:

1. Reduce the document's complexity by using fewer fonts and removing bolding, shading, or underlining.

2. Reduce the document's graphics resolution.

21 Print Overrun HP LaserJet IIIP, III, IIID, IIISI, 4, 4M, 4Plus, 4Mplus, 4Si, 4Si MX, 4P, 4MP Printers Complex data (rules, graphics, dense text) have caused the printer's page formatting process to "fall behind" the printing process. For the 4 family this problem is also caused by printing too many typefaces at 600 dpi, or by printing a PostScript job at 600 dpi using only the printers base memory.


Workarounds:

1. Reduce the document's complexity by using fewer fonts and removing bolding, shading, or underlining.

2. Reduce the document's graphics resolution.

3. Select the printer's Page Protect option (Letter, A4, Legal).

The following amounts of optional printer memory are required to use the "Page Protect" feature:

22 I/O CNFIG ERROR
HP LaserJet IIP, IIP+, II, IID, III, IIID, IIISI, IIIP Printers Serial buffer overflow error. The host computer did not receive, or ignored, the printer's request to suspend the flow of data causing the printer's buffer to overflow. Press Continue to clear the error message. Verify that the proper printer cable is being used and that both ends of the cable are tightly connected. If the error appears on the printer at bootup, check to see if the printers serial cable is plugged into the computer's parallel port. If running parallel, the cause could be a bad cable or printer interface. If the error appears only after data is sent, there may be incompatible handshaking protocol; for example, XON/XOFF, or DTR. By default, the printer lowers the DTR polarity and sends XOFF (DC3) to suspend the flow of data. DTR is raised and XON (DC1) sent to resume the flow.

Parallel Communication

1. Defective parallel cable or cable that is over the supported 10 foot length.

2. Verify the cable connections are secure at both ends. Disconnect and reconnect even if they look secure.

3. Set High Speed to No and Advanced Functions to "OFF" in the Parallel Menu on the front panel of the printer.

4. If using Novell network v. 3.11 and a version of PServer before 1.22. Upgrade to at least PServer v.1.22 and change the "Use Interrupts" setting in the Print Server Information section of the Novell PConsole utility to No.


Serial Communication:

1. Serial cable plugged into the parallel port on the PC (error 22 message will appear when the printer is turned on).

2. Defective serial cable or cable that is over the supported length.

3. Verify the cable connections are secure at both ends. Disconnect and reconnect even if they look secure.

Message: Clearable Warning Messages, HP LASERJET 4, 4M, 4 Plus, 4MPLUS, 4SI, 4Si MX, 4P, 4MP Printer

Clearable Warning Messages HP LaserJet 4, 4M, 4SI, 4Si MX, 4P, 4MP printers A "clearable warning" appears when the printer receives a print command that requires an option to be installed (such as additional memory or a PostScript SIMM). Depending on the situation, the printer will automatically reduce resolution, lower the level of page protection, compress the data, or abort the print job.

The printer first attempts to satisfy the print request by reducing resolution, then by lowering the level of page protection, then by compressing the data if possible. If it receives a job for an uninstalled personality (such as PostScript) or requires more memory than is available, the job is aborted. Clear message by pressing SHIFT and Continue on the printer.
