Paper jam kills printer

Rahmboy, Amazon
18 January 2012
  • Summary: After a paper jam the printer stopped working. I removed the ink cartridge and checked inside for torn paper, I unplugged and plugged back the device. Then I went on the web and found a few others who had the same problem. Nothing that the techs suggested on the web sites had worked. USB cable does not even recognize the printer anymore... it is permanently offline. It is a shame that I have to throw away an otherwise good printer.

Good printer when it works

Hybrid_user, Amazon
24 May 2011
  • Summary: This printer was purchased without my knowledge and given to me with instructions to make it work. I'm the go to person when IT stuff doesn't work. I liked the printer at first, as it seemed to install properly on either of the windows machines on my network, my personal mac, or my linux boxes. That being said I just ordered a Brother HL2270.

terrible customer service - arrogant

J. nathan "unhappy customer", Amazon
30 March 2010
  • Summary: I don't know how the product is because it would not download. I had 2 IT people try to download this product on my business computer and I on my home computer and it would not print. I called the company it was shipped from and the gentleman was rude, arrogant and said he had no problems with the product and would not give me a full refund if I returned it for another one. I have had HP lasterjet (1020) prior to this one and had no problem.

Great output, but mine jams frequently.

Will O, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: This would be a great printer, as it's fast, easy to set up, and has great print output. Unfortunately, mine has more paper jams than I know what to do with. I've replaced the printer with a Brother HL-2170W, which offers wired/wireless networking, similar printing performance, and no jamming for just a little bit more money.

DOES NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 7!!!

Joseph R. Brusky "killjoy714", Amazon
1 November 2009
  • Summary: There are no HP driver currently available for Windows 7 for this printer. The HP Tech Guy (Syd) told me there will NOT be one available until January 2010!!!!! There are no generic drivers that will work either, according to Syd. I've tried other drivers and nothing works. Pros: I've tried it on Windows XP and it works. It is quick, but you get an HP pop-up every time to confirm you actually want to print anything, especially from the manual feed loader.

you should seriously reconsider this purchase

Pablo N. Mondal, Amazon
28 September 2009
  • Summary: The summary - if you are thinking of buying this printer, and you print 130 pages a month or more, than you should seriously reconsider your purchase. I just bought the refill for my little laser printer a few weeks ago, and although there are some plusses for this printer/toner combo, in light of a new product release the P1006/35A is overall a pretty bad deal nowadays. Allow me to explain... The 35A toner cartridge [...] yields 1500 pages [...].

Horrific Networking but Passable for a Single Computer

WT, Amazon
1 June 2009
  • Summary: I originally bought this printer to plug into my home server to share amongst all my computers to do very light printing (I try to stay paperless). It refused to print in a networked environment no matter how much wrestling I did with it. I have over 20 years of sysadmin experience, so I decided to find the fix myself. Forum after forum all over the Internet sited problems with this printer when it was shared.

Mixed feelings....

aint2sure, Amazon
1 April 2009
  • Summary: I only purchased this printer because my new computer came with Vista and I could no longer use my old HP 1012. My one major complaint is that, heaven forbid I should accidentally let the 1006 run out of paper, it is a nightmare getting it started again! It will not recognize that it has paper in it, it will not delete the document it was printing....I have my only successes by feeding a sheet through the upper tray.

I miss my old HP

Lynn Christianson, Amazon
24 February 2009
  • Summary: I am quite disssatisfied with this printer. It does the job, though, and was cheaper than most (though we'll see how much I spend on toner). I previously had an HP Laser 1200?, which I had for a long time and was an incredible machine. It finally had to be replaced b/c I use my printer for my at-home work and the quality was starting to decline - not to mention toner price was going up. I assumed a new HP would do a better job. It doesn't. -The print quality is awful.
