Printer not feeding paper properly or at all..

It's almost like one side of the paper feed is feeding the paper through and the other isn't. This creates a jam on one side. Sometimes it will work properly then pull the 'Paper Jam' routine when there isn't one. I hate to throw the printer out; it is less than 1 1/2 years old.

I'm on site tech support for a client in Winston-Salem, NC - we found a pen in ours. Bless you all for the idea to check. I would've never looked had I not seen this site.

Re: Printer not feeding paper properly or at all..

Mine had a crumpled up shred of paper in it. I had to unbend a paper clip to dig it out. After alot of digging, and shaking, and partially disassembling the printer, I got it out. Thanks for the tip

Re: Printer not feeding paper properly or at all..

I had this problem too. But instead of chewed gum I found a little plastic toy inside. Kept the printer (deconnected) up-side-down and the problem was solved!

Re: Printer not feeding paper properly or at all..

I had exactly this problem. The roller side of the paper fed through, the other side did not feed at all. After trying different sheets of paper and watching the printer jam 10 times, i finally peered inside and saw a pieced of dried up chewed gum inside. None of my 4 kids knew anything about it. Using a ruler I removed the gum and solved the problem.

Paper will not feed

Hi, maybe there is still a little bit of jammed inside that you can\'t see. Try to see if there is and clean it. If you\'re sure there is no paper jam whatsoever, then there is a conflict with your feeding sensors or your cartridge isn\'t properly installed.
kind regards

How to load evelopes HL 2140

Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2
When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.

Open the back cover

Open the manual feed slot cover.

Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.

• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
• Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
• Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
• If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.

When trying to print getting error Paper Jam in Manual Feeder. There is no Jam...we tap the side of the machine and it prints....any Ideas on what causes this to happen?

There is likely a loose connection going to the manual feed paper sensor.
The printer thinks there's paper in the manual feed, but of course since there isn't any paper there, when it tries to feed the paper in from the manual feed, the next paper sensor is not tripped, so it assumes there is a jam in the manual feed.
Start testing at the manual feed sensor, and work your way back to the board it connects to.
It may be the sensor itself just needs to be cleaned - these sensors are usually optical, and spraying canned air at it will often fix it up.
Also, make sure the lever that trips the sensor isn't sticking after using the manual feed.

Paper won't feed properly- feeds at angle and jams. Printer indicates that it is out of paper.

Paper jam

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
