Loading tray will not pick up paper

This is very frustrating. i cannot get the loading tray on this printer to pick up the paper - please help. Do I have to pay a new tray or does Samsung replace the tray or is there is something I can do about it? If i have to purchase another tray, who sells them?

I had same problem and it was brand new printer first time installation. Kept on giving error message paper jam near exit while it was not even picking up the paper from the tray. I figured out that by lifting the front part of paper tray it activates some sensor inside the printer which triggers the paper lifting. I put a spare USB drive under the front part of tray and that did the magic. Now paper pickup seems proper.

I have another problem though which is with Red and Yellow color not getting printed. It is frustrating that brand new printer has such issues.

I had the same difficulty and from reading postings on this site I discovered it is the rubber on the take up roller that is the problem. I cleaned them as suggested but still no luck. Was on the verge of giving up when the chap in the local computer shop suggested I take the printer to a tyre fitter to get fixed! Apparently through time the rubber loses its grip and elasticity. Tyre fitters use a chemical called Bufsol when repairing punctures on tyres that rejuvenates the rubber. If you can bare the slight embarrassment of opening your car boot and asking them to fix your printer then rubbing the rubber lightly with this stuff seems to have done the job! Will post an entry in a few weeks time to let others know if its still working!

I just replaced an ink cartridge and the printer keeps telling me to load paper then press OK, but I already have paper loaded. The machine keeps trying to pick up the paper, but unsuccessfully.

Hi, Please check the paper and the paper tray. The paper or the the paper tray is inserted properly. Turn off the printer and turn it back on after 10sec. and try to print that should work. Please get back to us if this information helps you solve the problem.

My printer wont pick up paper , it keeps saying load paper and press okay when clearly i have paper at the bottom

Try to put paper in the manual feedd tray. If it prints, then put more paper in the auto-load tray, if that doesn't work, check the EXACT location of the clips and position indicators that indicate what size of paper is inthe tray. They may have moved, just slightly out of alignment. That has happened to me. Other than that, it may need new pick-up rollers.
Hope that helps.

My sharp ar122en copier cannot load paper, please

Does loading mean picking papers? If so remove the paper tray and rotate the semi-circular rubbers . Clean them with a clean damp cloth and return the tray loaded with papers.

The printer wont load the paper in anymore it will grab it on the left side but not the right

Please help me here. What model printer are you using?

Does it have multiple paper trays?

More then likley, the paper feed rollers are either worn or contaminated with paper dust and are not letting the paper be grabbed and pulled from the tray properly.

It could also be the paper pick solenoid not mechanically pushing both sides of the spring loaded tray up into the paper feed roolers. Or in the case of a true paper tray, preventing both sides of the tray from lifting with the same force.

My photosmart C3150 printer keeps feeding many sheets of paper when it goes to print. This causes a paper jam. How do I get it to only take a single sheet?

Try cleaning the rollers with purified water. See instructions here. Also make sure you fan the paper before loading, try flipping it upside down, and see here. If you have no luck, try another brand of paper, or loading more or fewer sheets...
Good luck, that's a frustrating problem...

Loading the paper

Check the paper settings on your word processor. Most probably you picked either a paper type or paper size that is not plain, letter sized paper. That is why the word processor sends the job to the manual tray.
