Paper Curl. Does the paper have a curl on the trail edge? (The last part of the paper to exit the printer)

If it is the entire paper replacement of the fuser will likely resolve this.
If the paper curl is on the trail edge then replacement of the upper delivery roller should be done.

Clean printheads on Xerox phaser 6180


This type of print quality defect shows up if you have loaded the wrong type of paper in your machine and didn't remember to change the paper type (plain paper, card stock, labels, etc.).
This can also happen if the paper has a high moisture content, or if the humidity in the room is too much. Also make sure the room temperature is within its normal operating range (not too hot, not too cold).

The problem you describe could also be caused by using non-Xerox toner/drum units. Compatible toners don't work very well in Xerox printers.

Aside from those problems, the only other thing would be if the Fuser Assembly is near the end of its life...it will also cause some print quality problems like you are describing.

13.2 paper jam/open tray error, but its not. It doesn't make the right sounds when initialising, no motor running.


Hello There,

After working with HP for quite sometime,

here is what i recoimmend.

1.Ensure that paper trays are loaded properly, so that paper can feed from the tray
2.Check the input area for obstructions, such as paper in the path or visible damage to the paper path near Tray 1.
3.Remove the print cartridge and lift the green handle attached to the metal plate underneath to check for paper in the paper path.
NOTE: Try swapping the tray and print cartridge with one from different printer, same model. Determine if issue follows the tray or the print cartridge.
4.Ensure that paper is feeding correctly from the appropriate tray (try using a freshly opened **** of paper).
a.Inspect the pickup assembly by removing the paper tray in question to look inside the printer.
b.Locate the rubber roller with a purple, plastic hub (paper feed roller).
c.Locate the paper pickup assembly that is directly behind the paper feed roller. The paper pickup assembly consists of a shaft with four half-moon shaped rubber and white plastic rollers attached to it.
d.Rotate the shaft to locate the half-moon rollers and ensure that it turns easily.
e.Locate the black plastic coupler shaped like a dog bone that is immediately to the right of the shaft .
f.If either the pickup assembly or the coupler is missing or damaged, the printer will need to be serviced.
5.Do not fan paper to separate, bend the **** into a U shape to break the sheets free from one another.

NOTE: If the steps listed in this document do not return the printer to a READY state, service may be required. Contact the HP Customer Care Center for more information
Please feel free to leave a testimonial if this works and please do not forget to click 4 thumbs.

Cheers!

System keeps telling me i have a paper jam


Does the paper exit the paper tray?
If not, the half-moon shaped feed rollers may be slippery. Turn the copier on its back side to see the rollers.
Usually they are facing upwards and the rubber side is unreachable. Turn the copier back to its original position.

1. Press the copy button. When the copier starts feeding paper take the power cord off-QUICKLY. If you are quick enough the rollers remain at down position and you can clean them with some kind of rubber cleaning liquid or solvent. Perhaps alcohol, but it tends to dry out the rubber surface.

Will not pick up paper from tray


Those segmented half rollers are deceiving. They appear good but somehow don't feed. Google a business called "The Parts Drop". Call Britt and he will have those as entire rollers and sleeves. I don't work there but have dealt with him for a long time. Outstanding business to deal with.

Media curls on lead and trailing edges


Any of the following:-

Ensure the correct paper weight settings are in use. Excesive heat will cause paper curl.
Feed paper short edge first.
This is normal with high ink coverage on light paper. Use a heavier weight paper.
Your fuser may need replacing.

Fusing temperature control


1-if the paper is curling, first thing to do is try fresh new paper.
the one that is there probably has moisture.
2- is the fuser o.k. ? if the rollers are not in new condition they will curl the paper. make sure the bottom roller is shiny and smooth, it is supposed to have a clear plastic on it if it is gone or in bad shape, will give problems.

Brother HL_5280SW Clack and pages curling


When paper is damp and runs threw the fuser in machine paper dries out and curls, try fresh paper, see this link about paper. Try a fresh sealed ream of quality paper

I dont have this model in Australia but it looks the same as the HL 5270 and there is bullitin released on these to eliminate paper curl, they upgraded the fuser and exit guide to fix this problem, yours is 2 months old so is covered by warranty, contact brother in your country to have it fixed.

Red line on last quarter of photos


I assume that the red line is not on the photos themselves (make sure this is the case - if they're scanned photos, it might be a scanner problem). If this is a 4" by 6" paper, set it in the printer after bending it in the opposite direction. 1) Set a sheet of paper on the printing side of the paper to be printed on. (If the print surface is touched by hand, the print surface may be soiled by skin oils, and the print quality may deteriorate.) 2) To bend the paper, hold the paper in a rounded shape for about 10 seconds. 3) Remove the paper not to be used in printing, and confirm that, when laid flat with the print side up, the center of the paper to be printed on is raised between 2 to 5 mm (0.2 in.) . 4) The curled paper to be printed on should be set in the printer, and printed, sheet by sheet. Canon recommends using Photo Paper Pro PC-101S 4" x 6" sized paper. When using PC-101S, printing is performed at the center of paper and streaks or uneven printing is avoided. If this is an A4 sized paper, try using Photo Paper Pro PR-101 paper, and make sure that the printing quality is set to "high" or "fine". If nothing helps, I would suggest trying a new ink cartridge. If you still have this problem and nothing solves it, call a repairman.
