Hello, usually this problem is caused by humidity, try new opened paper and / or change the copier humidity / temp conditions.

Regards, Mug.

My dell 2350 dn feeds to much paper causing jam


Step 1: Try fanning the paper at the feed edge before placing it in.
Step 2: Ensure that the paper is placed in with the edge curl up. When holding a bunch of paper between two fingers, the paper will naturally have a curl to it. It should be placed in "happy" (Edges up).
Step 3: Inside the printer's paper tray and where the feed mechanism is, locate the feed rollers and static feed pad. These will all be rubbery or "foam"-like. They should always be slightly tacky when rubbed against, however paper dust will eventually cause them to become slippery instead. Rubbing alcohol can be used to clean them with care and a Q-tip and recover the slightly rubbery, tacky feeling, thus resolving misfeeds.

How can i prevent paper jams


ø Remove printer paper from its original packaging. Insert all unused paper into a large, resealable bag. Store the bag with the unused paper on a hard, flat surface away from extremes of heat and humidity to prevent curling, bending, ripping and wrinkles which can cause paper jams.

?? Remove only the amount of paper you need for a particular job from the resealable bag. Tap the paper stack on a hard flat surface to align the edges. Check the paper for rips, curls, wrinkles or bent edges. Remove and discard any unsatisfactory pages.

?? Insure all paper in the stack is the same size and type. Insure only paper types recommended for the HP All-in-One printer is being used. Recommended paper types can be found online at www.hp.com/support/inkjet_media.

?? Insure the HP Officejet All-in-one printer is not currently servicing a print job. Remove any original papers from the copier glass.

?? Insert the stack of paper into the input tray, short edge forward. Slide the stack forward until it stops. Do not force the stack beyond its initial stopping point.

?? Slide the paper width guide inward until the paper is held snugly in the input tray, but not so tightly that it bends the paper. Insure the stack of paper does not extend

?? Observe the printer during operation. Promptly remove printed pages from the output tray.

I860 will not print a 4 x 6 photo on a windows 7 pc. It gives a message that I have installed the wrong paper. It only wants to print full sheet size photos. I installed the canon add on module drivers and...


Set Envelopes Correctly Before setting envelopes, press down on all four corners and edges of the envelopes to remove curls and bends, as well as any air contained.

i80_envelopes_1.gif
Note: The flap of the envelope should be straightened if bent. If the envelope is curled, hold the opposite corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction. If the leading edge of the envelope is puffed or curled up, use a pen, etc. to press the envelope flat and sharpen the crease. (Press the envelope completely flat, working from the middle to the edge.)


i80_envelopes_2.gif How to set envelopes:
  1. Set envelopes to the right side of the sheet feeder. Set envelopes with their longer side vertically and the flap either at the bottom or on the left.

  2. Pinch and slide the paper guide until it firmly resets against the left side of the stacked envelopes.

    Note: The maximum number of envelopes that can be loaded is five.

  5. Flip the feeder guard forward. Squeeze the edge guide and slide it left.

    pm_paperload_218_er.gif

  6. Insert paper, printable side up and short edge first, against the right side and beneath the tab.

    pm_paperload_219_er.gif

    You can load up to 100 sheets of 20 lb plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo paper.

  7. Slide the edge guide to the edge of the paper, but not too tightly.

    pm_paperload_220_er.gif

    Follow these guidelines when loading paper:

    • Do not load paper above the arrow on the edge guide.

    • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

    • If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin.

    • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

    • Load the printable side face-up. It's often brighter or whiter than the other side.

    • Load letterhead or preprinted paper top edge first.

    • If you experience paper feeding problems, try loading fewer sheets.

    • If you're using special paper, check the package for special loading instructions.
Follow these steps to reload paper in the Automatic Document Feeder:

  1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

  2. Tap the originals on a flat surface to even the edges.

  3. Move the edge guides outward.

    pm_paperload_223_er.gif

  4. Insert the originals face-up. You can load up to 30 letter-size sheets at a time. If you load legal-size sheets, insert only 10 sheets at a time. Make sure the originals are not creased or folded and do not have tape, staples, or other materials that could obstruct the feeder.

  5. Slide the edge guides against the originals.

Paper curl


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.

Paper curling due to condensation


All copiers have thermal fuses that should blow if copier gets too hot,so there's probable nothing wrong with the machine but the paper.When paper gets damp it curls. This is because when the paper feeds through the fuser a combination of heat & pressure dry the paper out causing it to curl!

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.

Curled corner causing a paper jam


Try replacing all paper. Sometimes paper that is overly humid or has gotten wet will curl. Replace with new paper and report results.

Copier down


Understanding how an image (copy) is made might help.
The drum goes thru a Basic process like this; charge,exposure,transfer,clean.
the paper only comes into play during the transfer stage. Since the drum has a static charge the paper gets attracted to the drum and needs to move at the same speed as the drum. After a small distance the paper has to be repelled from the drum with the print (sometimes called Detack), this can be accomplished by a Detack wire or a reverse of polarity applied to the paper.
If this doesnot happen paper stays on drum (jam).
So you need to see if the jam you remove has any ink on it, this would indicate a transfer issue maybe a detack problem.
If it is clean (never reaches the drum) then a paper feed problem is indicated.
Now you need to understand paper!
Some paper is long grain other is short grain. This is what gives the stack of paper a curl as you hold it by the edges (most paper has an arrow on the wrap telling which way to run paper (it means curl up / curl down basically). The problem with grain is usually when some cuts down 11 x 17 paper to save money to give you 8 1/2 x 11.
How do you tell grain fold paper in half long edge to long edge run your fingers down the edge if it is smooth you have long grain. Most copiers feed the long edge therefore long grain is what you need . If when you fold in half the edge is rough, then fold another top to bottom if seem is smooth you have short grain, This works better on top edge feeding copiers / printers, these are unusual since most they are slowest (mostly diazo printer).

Since you seem to have problems early make sure you remove paper every night and store flat, note the curl direction beacuse if when you put it in in the morning it might change curl (teacup).

Some times old machine use rubber rollers to start initial fee, these you could try to clean with some finger nail polish remover. This will eventually dry out the rubber but if it helps then maybe you only need to replace the rollers.

That was a quick lesson hope it helps.
