Re: Multiple paper feed

I gave the page separator roller a light sanding with fine sandpaper to roughen the surface a bit so it could "grab" the pages more easily (one at a time!) and then used a squeeze bulb blower to blow out any dust. It worked perfectly!

Re: Multiple paper feed

The paper separator pad is worn out and will need to be replaced. It's a rubber pad that rests behind the paper pickup roller and is supposed to prevent what you're experiencing. Contact your nearest authorized HP repair center.

Hello can you assist I can not figure out why the CX8310 Epson printer won't allow me to feed paper into it.

  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right edge, behind the tabs, then slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure the paper is not in front of the feeder guard.
  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.
  • Don't load too many sheets at once (up to 20 sheets of photo paper, 80 sheets of Premium Bright White paper, or 100 sheets of plain paper).

    Paper feed

    Have you tried a different brand of paper?. When choosing the paper try and select one which the sheets can slide easily over each other. I had loads of problems with multiple feeds and paper jams with a cheap paper. I then changed to a heavier 90gsm all in one paper from staples and have had no more problems since.(and i just chuck the paper in straight from the packet with no fanning etc)

    HP paper jam

    That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

    Not printing

    There is probably a paper jam in the tray feed path. The other situation is that the tray paper pick up roller has become hardened/polished, or the paper tray paper is greasy. First step, take the paper from the tray, and fan it out, so each sheet is separated from the next. try it with jut a dozen or so sheets, change the paper.

    Thoroughly check the paper feed path.

    If not working, then check/clean the rollers.

    Automatic Paper feed

    Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.

    Slower printing speed

    Multiple sheet feeding in any printer can mean many things. Paper roller blockages and jams, wrong paper for printer, too much paper in. Make sure you check right down the back and inside the unit for anh small blocks. This can then cause errors in the printer itself. As it is now printing but slow, the paer issue could be resoved but you may now have driver errors or pc issues. Are you getting any flashing LED lights. Have you checked to see if device is showing errors or functioning correctly. Go to start menu, control panel, performance/main, system, devices, scroll down to your printer, are there any yellow exclamations? Does it say it is working ok?
