Printer not catching paper


You may have to clean the pick up rollers with alcohol or put a new roller in your printer.

If you have a printer with a tray, make sure it is set correctly for the paper you have installed.

It will try to grab the paper a number of times and will usually give you a paper jam error after a number of tries.

Several pieces of paper fed in printer and now I have a paper jam and cannot remove the paper


...look at the printer manual to remove jams. Some time you may have to remove the difuser to get rid of them. Depending what type of printer you have. Remember you can go on line to download the manual if you don't have one available. Check if the paper is catching excesive mousture and that the roller that catch the paper have been given proper maintenance. Tks.

Paper doesn't advance through the printer


Hi, Sounds very much like the feed rollers are worn out. If you can get to them without too much trouble you can clean them up with regular rubbing alcohol and a rag which will help the paper feed. You might also want to try unpluging the printer and trying to roll the paper feed buttons by hand and seeing if a piece of paper will feed through without catching anywhere. If it does catch somewhere, then you may very well have a small piece of paper jammed in the paper path causing the jam. Good luck.
