    i had the same problem with my HP desk jet 3050 all in one. After three days of trying to shake and make sure nothing was in the printer, on the third day i decided to try the suggestion made by cabrooks jr to clean the rollers with isopropyl alcohol to give them their grip back and that is exactly what the problem was..Thanks i did not want to have to buy another printer.

I had the same problem with my Dell 924 and after EXTENSIVE research I found a forum where about 90 percent of the people with the same problem ultimately found some sort of foreign object in the printer. I spent about 30 minutes shaking my printer to no avail then I broke out the flashlight and started looking in every nook and cranny. I lifted up on of the small black plates on the roller towards the back of the printer (if you're looking in the front) and low and behold I saw something that looked odd. Grabbed some tweezers and fished out an allergy pill in a little bubble pack. Was wedged in there to good to fall out from the shaking. Take a piece of card stock or photo paper and try to feed it through the printer manually. If starting at the top, take note of where the paper stops and that should be where your problem is. Try feeding from the top and the bottom, if the paper will not feed through, something is in it's way. Hope this helps.

Check the adjustments for the paper your using. Open the printer and look on the rollers you'll probably find paper or an obstruction clear it and also clean then rubber moving parts with isopropyl alcohol to give them their grip back.

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

i have had so much trouble with the epson stylis photo r1800... it doesn't feed right every so often and it is so frustrating. It seems to be with the rollers that pull the paper in, I don't think the rollers are pulling at the same strength and causes the paper to feed a bit off and the printer thinks that the paper is loaded incorrectly. Has this happened to anyone else and what can I do to make it work properly. This is also my third printer, Epson keeps sending me new ones when I conplain because they can't seem to help me...

No paper feed (brother MCF-440CN)


Had a similar problem with the MFC-885cw. Turns out that , if you have a photo paper tray installed which sits just above the main tray, you need to puill it all the way back towards you otherwise it blocks the paper feed. Not the best design feature I've ever seen.

My paper goes to one side when printing starts and it does not print ny work


There may be a scrap of paper stuck in the machine, interfering with normal paper feed. Turn off the printer, and try to force a sheet of paper through the printer by hand. Feed the paper only in the normal direction that the paper goes. Forcing it by hand may push out the stuck scrap. Thin cardstock can be used instead of paper.

Paper not feeding into the printer properly


This is usually caused by the pickup rollers. When they get worn just a little they will start doing this. You can try cleaning them with alcohol, this helps sometimes.
