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.

I think that the key instruction is the one about cleaning the rollers inside the printer - accessed from the back of the printer. They aren't the wheels visible just inside the rear of the printer, you're looking for a wheel or set of wheels farther inside that rest on the input tray.

Error 2 paper out but not


Does that printer feed from two ends -- a tray and a feeder at the back? If so, make sure your program is set up to draw the paper from the correct tray, or else put your paper in on the other side.

My OKI C5500 will only print from the MP tray, and will not take paper from the bottom paper tray, even though there is plenty of paper in the bottom tray. Its giving me a 490 Error message, but I do NOT...


490 error means -

LOAD mmm AND PRESS ONLINE SWITCH 490: MP TRAY EMPTY

Print job from MP Tray has been received and the MP Tray is empty.

Load the requested media (mmm) in the MP Tray and press ON-LINE.

Check your print driver settings and see if your defualt try is set for the MP Tray. Also see if the page setup for the print job is set for MP tray.

Cannot see a paper jam even when the messages say there is a Medi


The paper tray should lift to present the paper to the feed assembly. If the paper tray does not lift then that will require attention and a fairly extensive strip down to replace either the complete tray or just the lift assembly.

IBM Infoprint 1512 out of paper message


It could be a problem with the paper feed roller above the tray or a sensor problem.

It should be looked at by a service technician.

No paper message


I have just posted a very similar problem!!

While I do not have the solution to our problem, I discovered another paper try below where the printed paper comes out.

Close the door to block where the paper would come out if it successfully printed, and look below that, you will find that you can pull out another paper tray. Adjust the little plastic paper guides inside, and your printer will use that paper.

Temporary solution, let me know if you figured out how to fix the problem with it rolling the paper through, just reply/post back to this message. Mine was working perfectly yesterday, and just started that grinding noise today. I've only had it for a couple months, too.

"No paper" or "Wrong paper size" warnings


Look in driver and see if the paper size is set to a different size. It could be that the driver says you want Letter size prints but you have A4 in the tray. The problem is most likely a driver setting that is set differently to what you need. Another option is to check that the paper feed guide is pushed up properly. If it is set too wide the machine may think it has a different sized paper in it.
