HP LaserJet P1102w Troubleshooting
Issues with input prongs
The input prongs are an important part of a printer as it provides it with the necessary power to function. One of the issues that can arise is bent power prongs. The prongs should be parallel to each other and straight, if this is not the case unplug the whole cord and try to adjust them. However, if the prongs are too bent or damaged you should replace the cord. The other problem you may encounter is debris or dust obstructing your prongs. In this case, you should clear out the area they are being plugged into and dust it. This issue can also appear with your plugin so make sure both ends of the cord are properly inserted.
Problems with inserting paper into the feeder
Paper may be stuck so gently remove it before inserting it again. If it still doesn’t function properly you should check the spring of the feeder. It is found on the bottom of the printer. Unscrew the 10mm screws, remove the paper feeding housing, then press down on the string and remove it. In case the spring is damaged or doesn’t properly compress try adjusting it, if this also doesn’t work then remove the spring. Another problem that may arise is with the drive belt. This will require you to remove the side panel and the gears above the belt, the cable should be firmly stretched over them if operating properly. If this isn’t the case you may need to replace the belt itself. Make sure to use tweezers or similar small items to do this, otherwise, you may injure yourself or damage the printer further.
