Hiya .. Your roller guides.. just need a general clean... and the sensors located just on the inside of the printer at the bottom where the paper sits ..

SOURCE: dx8400 will not take 260gsm photo paper

Maximum thickness allowed in this printer is 250gsm for Premium Glossy, therefor the paper appears to outside the specification of the machine. Only answer is use slightly lighter paper.

SOURCE: Paper feed not working properly

1. first check to see if there is any bits and pieces of paper in any place in the paper carriage -- look very carefully in front access and rear access
2. if this is not the problem, then disconnect printer from computer -- turn off printer, unplug power cord, unplug printer cable from printer
3. gain access to paper roller assembly, usually in rear
4. using lint free cloth, dampened with distilled water clean rollers -- read manual to determine direction of rotation (usually clockwise)
5. keep rotating rollers until all is wiped clean of paper dust
6. reassumble and try a test print as your printer manual directs

SOURCE: Paper wont feed into printer no paper jam



In the comments section Blumm suggests pushing a piece of cardboard (like the back of a legal pad) through the feeder as far as you can. Turn the printer off and then on again with it in there. Pull the cardboard out and check for any foreign objects that have been pushed through.
It worked for many people including myself - I got a piece of plastic and it works wonderfully again!

SOURCE: paper won't feed properly and

There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.

Epson xp 305 what is the heaviest card it will print on ? I have tried with quite thick card changed the settings to premium glossy photo paper (as there is no card option ) and it just wont pull through...


The driver? Are you serious? I have the same issue. The problem is the XP-305 and the DX8400 (I have had both) will not MECHANICALLY take 260gsm photo paper and struggles with virtually any card. I'm sorry but copying and pasting a standard answer to up your Post level is annoying. There is NOTHING to suggest the OP is having any issues with anything else other than the issues outlined. It seems to be unable to "grab" the paper. It can be tricky with 240gsm but 260gsm seems impossible.

I have a Canon iP 1800 printer - I would like to know if I can print on cardboard? What is the thickest paper it will take?


I cannot find any official paper thickness for this printer. s a general rule I would not use anything thicker that 260gsm in a printer designed for home/small office use.

Canon Inkjet, Not Printing?


Hi Rosa,
There was a paper jam and you cleared the jam, however you missed out to do one other thing. Cleaning the Rollers.

If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.

You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1.Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

2.Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

3.Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.

(1) Press the g0081065_tcm14-774017.jpg (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.

(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.

4.Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.


This should fix the issue

My canon pixma mx320 won't feed paper properly it seems to grab one side of paper and feeds it crooked then stops


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

Hi I've been trying to print onto a 260gsm card but it keems jamming the printer. is there anyway of preventing the jam and printing on this high quality card?


Unfortunatly not all printers support a high quality paper. Some paper will have a silk like finish that makes the rollers hard to grab on. Others like the 260gsm card kind of have a texture so it is easy however it may be too thick for the rollers.

When printing Glossy paper 260gsm, on my HP 4280, the paper appears to be slipping in the feed roller and the image prints too far down the page. Any ideas ??


Take the back cover off, and you will see the feed rollers in there. Use a soft cloth and some all purpose cleaner and gently clean the rollers, not too much liquid on them, lat dry and clean again for couple or three times. You feed rollers have become soiled and are slipping on your paper. I have three hp printers and this must be done every couple months or so. I think I found these instructions on hp.com if I remember right.
