Question about HP 1050 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax
Following errors, Paper jam tried blowing air, cleaning the rollers (hard to clean no back to take off to get in there) also ink error/damaged error took them out looked at them look fine they are band new. so ... ? Tried all the steps in the HP website to get it to print will not print a test page at all, will only grab paper a little and then it stops. Power button blinking. Have Windows 8 This worked fine in Windows Xp. Please help!
This could be one of a few things... First, Windows 8 is a completely different animal from Windows XP! Try reloading your printer driver in Windows 8. If this doesn\'t work, you need to clean the paper pickup rollers at the front of the printer (where the paper first feeds into the machine. I use a Q-tip moistened (not sopping wet) with rubbing alcohol... gently scrub the whole pickup roller and then the feed roller next to it. Check carefully (with a flashlight) for any shards of paper that might be blocking the paper path. There is also a sensor flag (small finger of plastic) sticking up that the paper must hit to let the printer know that the paper is feeding through. If you do not see the sensor flag, it is either jammed or has been broken off when a piece of paper was pulled backward out of the paper feed area. First reload the printer driver, and try to print. If it doesn\'t print, check and clean the rollers and look for the sensor flag.

Testimonial: "Thank you I tried all of what you said it it STILL will not print will not scan error paper jammed error or ink error. Every day that this thing is not working is another day were I'm not earning anything I Have to be able to scan my art work, and print out things. There is nothing jamming the printer I have looked the ink cartrages are brand new i feel that my printer is not reading things correctly and is giving these errors, because it does not have an error to go with whats wrong? Have had actual jams before it's not acting the same way, can't put my finger on it."
