Printer complains: Insert Paper fully into MPF

Open Reg Cover Remove Paper
Insert Paper Fully into MPF


We've removed the paper and turned it on and off but it continues to complain. If we leave the paper out, it tells us to insert paper. If we put paper in we get the error message.

    Nothing is mentioned in the small LCD read out other than the two lines mentioned above.

    I do not know of any error code.

    Thanks for your response.

More then likely, the MPF roller is worn and simply no longer picking up paper from the tray. This would need to be replaced.

Pull the paper tray out and look for any obstructions in there.  Check for broken parts as well such a sensor.  Sometimes they get out of position as well.

My Dell MFP 1815dn has a paper Jam 2. I removed the toner cartridge and pulled the paper out, before I realized that I needed to open the back. I believe I thought I got the paper out, but the printer is...


After a paper jam occurs in the rear cover of a Dell Laser Multi-Function Printer 1815N, the printer will not resume when the jammed paper is removed. This is the normal behavior of the printer as there is no sensor on the rear cover of this printer.

To open the back cover and remove any stuck paper, perform the following steps:
  1. Open and close the front cover.
    The jammed paper may automatically exit the printer. If the paper does not exit, go to the next step.
  2. Gently pull the paper out of the output tray.
  3. If you cannot see the paper in the output tray or the paper does not move when pulled, open the rear cover.
  4. Skip to step 9. If you do not see the paper, go to the next step.If you see the jammed paper, push the two blue pressure levers up and remove the paper.
  5. Release the blue strap, the rear cover stopper, and fully open the rear cover.
  6. Unfold the duplex guide fully.
  7. While pushing the fuser lever to the right, open the fuser door. NOTICE: Make sure to unfold the duplex guide before opening the fuser door, or the fuser door may be damaged.
  8. Pull the jammed paper out.
  9. Return the levers, fuser door, rear cover stopper, and duplex guide to their original position.
  10. Close the rear cover.
  11. Open and close the front cover.
    Printing automatically resumes.

My printer chew one side of paper laserjet 1320


Is the correct model number: HP Deskjet D1320 Printer ? Was printer working properly at one point? May be resulting from failure to fully clear a paper jam:

Paper jam

To clear a paper jam


1. Remove the paper from the paper tray.


2. If you are printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached from the label sheet while passing through the printer.


3. Turn off the printer.


4. Remove the rear access door. Press the handle to the right, and then pull out the door.


5. Remove the paper jam from the back of the printer, and then replace the rear access door securely.


6. If the paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the printer, raise the printer cover, remove the paper jam from the front of the printer, and then lower the cover.


Caution Remove the paper jam carefully as it is possible to damage the printer when removing paper from the front.


7. Reload paper in the paper tray.


8. Turn on the printer.


9. Reprint the document

if this does not help I would suggest installing a new driver from: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=ca&docname=c00211293&product=1839853&

When I turn on the printer the light paper flashes


The paper light flashing because there is some paper inside the printer. Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and look inside for the jammed paper. Remove the jammed paper and insert the cartridge , closed the front cover and switch on the printer.
It will help you to solve the problem.

Removed the fuser unit and also removed the left hand side panel to access the gearing mechanism.

Manually rotated the gearing a number of times thru 360 degress. This appears to have cleared whatever was causing the printer to detect a paper jam although there was no obvious sign of bits of paper or even dust build up.

Paper Jam 075-134 (states Open Reg cover and Check MPF)


The problem might be that it isn't picking up the paper. This will register as a jam if the paper does not reach the next paper sensor within a certain amount of time. check the feed assembly and check the paper to see if there are any marks on the edge from the pickup roller.
