My Epson 1400 wont pull the paper through when I hit the print button. But when I insert a sheet of photo paper and hit outside printer button it will pull thepaper through but wont print


Hi

First off, the simplest solution is to try to clean the rollers of dust. If you can access the rollers, especially while they are spinning, this would be best. Get a damp cloth either with water or rubbing alcohol and wipe the rubber down, and retest your machine. Most of the time this is cause by the paper pickup rollers, which are made out of plastic or rubber, getting too dirty/slick to properly pick up the paper. Remove all the paper and the paper tray if you can. Using a long qtip, clean the rollers with alcohol. If that doesn't work, or can't be done with your printer, take all the paper out but one sheet. Spritz some alcohol on the bottom of that sheet and smear it out so it covers the entire width of the paper up about 2 inches. Then try to print a document that is a blank page. After either of these methods wait at least 4-5 minutes for all the alcohol to dry before trying to print again.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Black dots are printing on the left hand side of the page when I print from my hp laserjet 1015. Any ideas how to fix this?


Run a "half test". Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print anything. Watch the paper, when it feeds about 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover. Pull out the toner and look down at the paper. If it has the dots, replace the toner. If it doesn't have dots, the fuser is probably bad.

Hi, My Canon MX310 all-in-one is only a couple of years old and lately broke down. The problem is it doesn't take the paper correctly. Shrink it at the start of printing and shows that there is not...


Hello,

My PIXMA 6000 has a paper tray on the bottom or else you can load the paper from above.

When the paper tray contains paper and is loaded it moves a switch that alerts the printer that there is paper available to the printer.

When loading paper from the feeder on the top of the printer there is a bar that kicks out from behind the paper that pushes the paper in to a roller on the other side. The roller grabs the paper and feeds it in to the printer. As the paper enters the printer a sensor detects it's presence.

My printer keeps showing the message "Clear paper jam, then press (check mark), there is no jammed paper in the printer.


If I load my paper at the 'proper' height, it will not feed. If I push the paper down too far, I get a 'paper jam' message. What works for me (even though it's a royal pain) is to feed 1 sheet of paper at a time. Put 1 sheet in so it's level with the top of the feed tray, then gently push it down 3/4 of an inch. That works for me. Good luck.

Paper doesn't feed from inside on XD 100 work center (10 years old, lightly used). Despite a full paper drawer, I get the "out of paper" error message.  I can copy by feeding through the back.


On this machine, the feed rollers might be worn down.
Not seeing the machine and by the description. there can also be other possible problem areas, deep in the machine itself.
Does the paper feed partially out?
If it does not, are there paper black scuff marks where the rollers were trying to feed the paper.
Can you hear the solenoids feed the paper?
If the paper does feed and seems crooked, it is possible the paper tray springs need to be stretched out just a little to push the paper tray plate more on the feed rollers.
Make sure the tray is completely up in the latched position so the feed wheels will touch the paper stack itself.
If you have a two paper tray, make sure you tell the machine what size paper you have for each tray.
Run paper in each tray.
Good luck.

Paper jamming


You have almost certainly got a foreign object in the paper feed path as there is nothing on the L/H side that should cause an obstruction. First of all turn the printer off & disconnect all cables. Turn the printer upside down and give a good shake, with luck the blockage should fall out. If not then you need to be a bit brave, make sure the print carriage is parked fully right and out of the way. You will need an A4 (approx) sized piece of stiff cardboard such as the backing from an A4 note pad. Insert this into the paper feed locating it between the feed rollers on the R/H side. Then push quite firmly to overcome the spring pressure, when you feel it push through about a half inch stop and open the printer to see what is being pushed through. Push the card fully through and retrieve the foreign object (I have found everything from paperclips, curtain hooks and even a golf tee!). Push the card through fully and out of the printer. Always remove paper jams etc, in the direction of the paper feed whenever possible as pulling anything backwards can dislodge or break the sensor flags.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Paper feed


Try pushing down on the back of the paper feeder. Also try lifting the paper tray up from the back of it.

If it is not pushing the paper out of the tray, you should first try taking a soapy cleaner like fantastic or formula 109 and clean the feed rollers and see if that helps.
The paper tray also lifts up and down to feed the paper so the gear that drives the tray up and down may be broken.
Slen the rolls first. If that doesn;t last long. Say in a day or two it starts misfeeding again, the rollers will need to be replaced.
