It sounds like the paper feed roller is probably dirty. If you can reach where the paper is picked up into the machine, you will most likely find a rubber roller. You can try to clean that roller with some alcohol. That should help you. Let me know if this helps.

Key disabled message


The Down Arrow and the View buttons are disabled on the T6050 as default because reverse paper feeding is not recommended on the T6050 printer because they only have one pair of tractors which are mounted above the platen. If the printer tries to reverse feed paper, it could cause a paper jam unless the platen gap is open sufficiently to allow the paper to feed down through the gap unhindered.
You can enable reverse paper feeding if you are sure that a paper jam will not occur. This is done as follows. Set the printer to Offline. Press the Mode key: display will show Offline Normal. Press any Arrow key until display shows Offline Oper. Press the Forms/1 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Oper Forms. Press the CPI/2 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Forms RevPap. Press the LPI/3 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows RevPap Enabled. Press the Enter key and reverse feeding will be set. Set the printer to Online. Once the reverse paper function has been enabled this option will need to be saved to prevent the setting being lost when the printer is powered off. To save the Menu Configuration; Put the printer OFFLINE Press the MODE button, then press the DOWN ARROW until CONFIG is displayed Press FORMS/1, then press the DOWN ARROW until PRINTER is displayed Press CPI/2, then press the DOWN ARROW until SAVE is displayed Press LPI/3, and with POWERUP shown in the display, press ENTER.

My hp 900 inkjet is offline and doesn't want to feed paper.


Hi,

The solution for an offline error of a printer is to check the proper connection of the printer.

Two options exist to turn off the offline mode.

If you choose the first option to change the offline state of the printer,

then go to Control Panel and then 'Printer and Faxes' option on the Control Panel.

Double-click on the printer you want to change to online mode from the displayed window.

A pop-up window will open and you need to select 'Uncheck Printer Offline' option from the menu bar.


try this:

You may be able to calibrate the paper out sensor to fix the problem.

Set the printer to Offline.
Press the Enter and Line Feed keys together and hold pressed until the alarm sounds (typically 3 or 4 seconds).
You should have seen briefly displayed, Tech Access On
The display will again say Offline.
Press the Mode Key, display will show Offline Normal.
Press either Arrow key until display shows Offline Test.
Press the Forms/1 key.
Press either Arrow key until display shows Test Diag.
Press the CPI/2 key.
Press either Arrow key until display shows Diag Prnt Cal.
Press the LPI/3 key.
Press either Arrow key until display shows Pap Out.
Press Enter
Follow the instructions on the LCD display, which will advise on removing and reinserting the paper.
After you have compleated the calibration place the pritner ONLINE to exit the menu.
And finally turn the printer power off, wait ten seconds and turn the printer power on again.

If the problem still exits you may need to repalce the lower tractors or the main logic board.

Please follow the steps given below to perform a self test on the printer:

1. Switch off the printer.
2. Press and hold down the paper feed button.
3. While keeping the paper feed button depressed, turn the power back on.
4. When the printer starts to print, release the paper feed button.
5. When the first page is printed, switch off the power (otherwise the printer will keep on printing).

Tally 2280+. While printing, goes offline and displays paperjam.


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Tally T6218 show paper out even if there is paper. what is the solution


Have to enable techmode (go offline and hold the line feed and enter button for three seconds)
then go into the test menu and do the fault override and turn off paper out sensor and then must calibrate the paper out sensor by checking and verifying voltage with paper in and paper out, this is done on the control panel.

Printer powers up, then down


Step1
If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Step
2
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
Step
3
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
Step
4
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.
