Clean the rollers with a damp cloth and some dish washing liquid. Damp, not dripping.
the rollers probably have some glue residue on them.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't


1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

Pull out the extension completely.

Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

No matter what i do the paper keeps getting jammed before it comes out... It looks like it's getting hang up on something by the front rollers... This is really making me very mad this morning....


Hi,
I understand your frustration. Try this solution.

* Push down the purple paper lever located on the right side of the multi-purpose sheet feeder and pull the jammed paper upward and out of the feeder.
* Open the scanner cover by pulling the lever located below the control panel, toward you and lifting the cover. Make sure the cover is completely open. Check to see if any paper is left in the paper path.
*
Close the scanner cover.
*
Remove the paper in the multi-purpose sheet feeder. Adjust the guides in the sheet feeder to the position for the paper size you are using. Fan the paper well, push down the paper lever. Load the paper with the lever down. Make sure the print side is toward the fax machine and the paper level is stacked below the paper mark. The feeder can hold up to 200 sheets of paper (20lb paper) or up to 10 envelopes.
* Turn the power back on.

I hope this helps you.

Blank line down left side of outgoing fax or feeder copy


The most common cause of blank (void) lines on a scanned document is from whiteout on the glass where the page is scanned when using the document feeder.
If there is a clear mylar sheet on the bottom of the document feeder, the whiteout may be there instead.

If there was dirt or a dark smudge on the glass (or mylar), it would show up as a black line, but whiteout is white, and shows up as a void (blank) line.

Lexmark X2350 won't pull paper to print.


One common cause of paper feed issues is a build up of dust on the printer's rear paper feed roller. This roller consists of a plastic axle with one rubber roller on each side. This is located in the automatic sheet feeder and is referred to as the "Pick Roller." As dust builds up on the rubber rollers, they become less tacky and therefore unable to grab a single sheet of paper.
To prevent and/or cure this type of paper feed problem, these rubber rollers should be cleaned. Unplug the printer's power cord and remove the paper from the automatic sheet feeder. Locate the pick roller and clean the rubber wheels on the left and right with a cloth dampened with warm water (be sure there is no excess water on the cloth as it may drip into the machine). After these are free of any dust or ink build up, reload the paper and plug the power cord back in. The paper should then feed normally.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Press the "Power" button to turn the printer power off.
2. Press and hold the "Copy" button.
3. Press the "Power" button one time and release it(keep holding the copy button).
4. Let go of the "Copy" button after the power LED flashes once.
5. The self-test will produce 1 page. The test is not continuous.
The self-test should print out a set of black and color bars.
If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Blank lines and doesn't feed properly


Please clean the print nozzles :
  1. Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
  2. Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
  3. Continue doing this until it looks clean.
  4. Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
  5. Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
    1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
    2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.


  1. Paper jam:

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
  1. Press the power button to turn the printer off.
  2. Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
  3. Close the front cover.
  4. Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
  5. Resend your document to print.
Ensure that:
  • The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
  • You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
  • The printer is on a flat, level surface.
  • The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
  • You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
  • The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
  • Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
  • Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
  • You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.

I can't get access on my PC to the HP Director.


Hi Seaner, I would suggest removing HP Director from the computer using Add/Remove programs in the control panel and then reinstalling. If that doesn't work let us know what operating system you are using, any error messages, problems, or changes that lead up to this situation. Also don't forget to rate this posting when done.
