Thread: HP laserjet 1160

    Question HP laserjet 1160

    I have a LaserJet 1160 that upon power on it starts feeding paper till it jams, on either page 2 or 3. Clear the jam close the doors and the cycle starts again. I went through about 30 sheets before my patience ran out. I have removed the sides and top and bypassed the door switch so that I can see what is happening and it appears that the paper is feeding too fast.

    Any thoughts let me know.

    If the pages it prints are black there is probably a problem with a clutch, causing a pickup roller to constantly spin. Check the plate on the clutch to see if it is seated properly.

    Its not probably that is the clutch, it is the clutch causing the problem, this problem was common in the laserjet II which is a older printer, if the pickup roller shaft is not properly installed then it will cause those problems.

    Reinstall the pickup roller and replace the clutch, and your be fine then.
