Printer does not print

My printer will not print. It makes noise, and the spool keeps turning like it is trying to grab the paper. It never grabs the paper and an error box comes up saying "out of paper". Also, when I try to print a test page, it tells me "printer has lost communication with computer". Help!!!

The roller unit that grabs the papers when I scan is making a weird noise and the paper will not feed for a scan

Please try this approach:
  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My printer will not grab the paper

I have an R2400 and it is very finicky about grabbing the paper. I have to hand feed sheets of thick matte paper one at a time with just the right amount of pressure and even then sometimes it takes two tries. Make sure you keep the rollers very clean.

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.

Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

Canon R265 keeps grabbing 6 sheets for printing one sheet

Paper has different thicknesses called Mils. Make sure you are using the correct paper for your printer. Paper that is thinner than is intended for your printer may sometimes cause it to take multiplesheets.

Printer does not "grab" paper but can see parts turning

you have bad rollers. you can try to clean the roller with an alchohol wipe but I doubt it will help much. You need to have the roller replaced or get a new printer

My printer (Epson R800) keeps on giving me the error 'Media not loaded correctly'. Even before it's even tried grabbing the paper, it starts blinking red on the paper/trash button. I've never had this

Please make sure that the paper that you are using is included under the printer's paper compatibility list.
Make sure that you are selecting the correct paper type on printer settings.
Trash and re-install the drivers.

Printer cannot grab paper,

The rollers in these printers go bad all the time. Your best solution would be to take it to a local printer shop and get the rollers replaced.
