Try this link http://www.retrevo.com/r/23555ci953/24/Printing+on+thick+paper,+labels+and+envelopes#q=Brother+HL-2140
the manual paper feed slot is at the front of your printer, under the 'Brother' sign. Be sure to open the back flap of the printer too (to let the labels come out)

My HP printer is not feeding paper.


Here is the solution for your problem just go through the steps given below and you can fix it yourself.

1. Check to make sure your printer has paper in its paper tray. If your printer has paper, check to make sure that the tray is not overloaded. If you suspect your paper tray is overloaded, remove some paper from the tray and attempt to print again.

2. Use the same type of paper when stocking the tray with paper; do not mix different types of paper into a single stack. Mixing different brands and weights of paper in a single stack makes your printer more prone to paper feed problems. If you find that one particular type of paper causes consistent feed problems, switching to a different type or weight of paper may solve the problem.

3. Check to make sure the paper in the tray is whole. Torn and creased paper will cause problems with the printer.

4. Open your printer's rear access cover and inspect the paper feed rollers. Dusty or dirty rollers cannot grip the paper; clean them with a soft, damp cloth and water.

5. Count your printer's rollers. HP printers have six paper feed rollers; if your printer is missing rollers the paper will not feed correctly. Contact HP to replace the rollers and repair your printer.

Thanks.

Paper jam on my Lexmark Z42


So I assume the computer is coming up with this error, Do you know whether there is paper in the printer or not that is causing this error or does the printer just think there is?

The outside panels should open up and you should see some rollers which may have paper stuck in them. Check for stuck paper or any other object and simply pull it out. Pulling paper out the way it went in won't wreck the printer.

If there isn't any object, you can try resetting the printer by unplugging it and the plugging it back in.

Let me know it neither of the above suggestions work or if you just need some more help or can provide more information on this.

thanks

Hi. If the printer spins at turn on, then gives the error, it will most likely need the printer repaired. This is a common problem with this printer. It has nothing to do with ink. If you want to replace the ink, you buy a new ink roller for it. NEVER re-ink the old roller or you will have trouble. Suggest you take it to a Casio agent to have the printer repaired.

    Clear any paper or carriage path obstructions
    With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
    Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
    Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
    Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found. You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
    Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
    Press the On button to turn on the product.
    Plug the product directly into a wall outlet Follow these steps to make sure that the product is correctly connected to a suitable power source.
    Remove the power cord from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded wall outlet.
    Perform a partial reset A partial reset will return user settings to factory defaults. On some models, language and country/region settings are also reset. Perform a partial reset of the product by following the instructions below.
    Unplug the power cord from the unit.
    Reconnect the power cord into the unit.
    When the lights begin to flash, press and hold the On/Resume buttons.
    Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
    If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
    If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
    Remove and re-install the print cartridges Improper placement or installation of the product's print cartridges can cause the product to indicate a carriage stall error condition. Ensure correct installation of the print cartridges by following the instructions below.
    With the printer plugged in and turned on, open the cartridge access door (see the illustration). After a moment, the print carriage should come to the center. The print cartridge carriage is the plastic part that holds the print cartridges. When the carriage is at the center of the access area, unplug the printer.
    Remove the cartridges from the carriage and check them for damage. Check for obstructions under and around the carriage. Replace any damaged cartridges.
    Reinstall the print cartridges.
    Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.

    Have installed new printer a message pops up saying the printer is out of paper even though there is plenty of paper in tray.


    Hey buddy,

    Follow the below steps:

    Step one:
    Check the media and print settings
    While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
    If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
    Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, wrinkled, or bent. If the paper is curled, uncurl the paper by gently bending it in the opposite direction of the curl or replace the paper.
    NOTE: Use plain paper in the unit until the issue is resolved.
    Verify that all the paper is the same size and type.
    Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
    Verify that the stack of paper to be loaded in the unit contains between 10 and 25 sheets of paper.
    NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the printer.
    Insert the stack of paper into the printer and then gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper.
    Adjust the paper settings in the print driver. The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
    Open a document in the application in which it was created.
    Click File .
    Click Print .
    Click Properties . The Printer Properties dialog box displays.
    Click the Paper/Quality tab.
    In the Size is drop-down menu, select the size of the paper loaded in the unit.
    In the Type is drop-down menu, select the type of paper loaded in the unit.
    Click OK .
    NOTE: These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings will revert to the default print settings the next time the application is opened.
    On the Print dialog box, click OK to print the document.
    Try printing again. If the issue is not solved, continue on to the next section.
    NOTE: If the issue is resolved and you want to print on another type of media, change the paper in the unit and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new media.
    Step two: Clean the rollers
    Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
    Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
    Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
    NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
    Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
    Close the access door and plug in the power cord.
    Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
    Step three: Service the product
    If you have completed all the steps and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.

    Cause of this problem:

    Any of the following issues can cause the error message to appear:
    The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
    The paper is curled.
    The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the input tray face down.
    The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers.
    The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
    The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product.
    The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
    The rubber paper-feed rollers are coated with dust.
