New Printer Won't Print

I just bought a "re-certified"/refurbished HP Laserjet 6P laser
printer, that annoyingly didn't come with a manual. I figured I could
hack a printer, but when I put paper in the bottom front tray and the
orange light by the lightning bolt lights up but the printer does
absolutely nothing, I am at a bit of a loss here. Can anybody tell me
what that top orange light means and do I have a problem I can fix? I
like HP printers and I'd really hate to have to send it back. Thanks.

Go to the HP site, and see if you can download the user manual. You will
have to search out their site. If you cannot find it, then contact HP
directly to see if you can obtain it somehow.

Start at this web page for HP 6P information:

Did you install the driver?

Every HP I owned has the paper feed issue, but you can get a free kit
from HP to correct it. Obviously your paper isn't feeding.

Yes, can you give us more details?
You say 'printer does nothing'. What does the computer do when you print? No
error message like 'printer not detected'?
Sounds like the power light is on. Is there a button that says 'On Line'?
Might be a light next to that. If not lit, press On Line button.

What operating system are you using? Most windows OS's will detect the new
printer IF:

1) cable is connected
2) printer is turned on
3) restart computer

your machine should see it and walk you through the driver load.

Good luck.

How is it connected? USB, Parallel?

In addition to all the other stuff folks mentioned you failed to supply:
Is there a toner cartridge in it?

Now that's the problem, I think: since I'm not the least bit familiar
with the insides of the 6P and don't have a manual, I'm not 100 per
cent sure that there's a crtridge there. But I suspect I may have to go
and buy one. Thanks.

If it's a laser printer and it was shipped with a cartridge in it, you'd
be experiencing the mother of all toner spills ... most lasers come with
a warning that it must kept horizontal at all times, and the cartridge
comes *out* to ship it! Shipping it anywhere with a cartridge in, for
obvious reasons, voids the warranty.

dont know where the orginal post it but here is
a place to get the manuals for the printer.
http://www.landscape.uk.com/monomanuals.htm
just scroll down neart the bottom and the 6P
is there.


None of those links seem to work?

Try this one, directly from the HP website:

Thanks for the link, but I was already there. They had service manuals
(and only for the 5P), but no user manual for either the 5P or the 6P.

You would think for a very popular workhorse printer, somebody would
have the User's Manual in one form or another. You would think, and
you'd be wrong; there's no User's Manual anywhere. Knowing about the
printer language is rather worthless when you can't even figure out how
many trays there are how they are loaded.
