My HP4100 keeps jamming under the toner cartridge. I have a repairman look at it 2 times and he cannot figure it out. Does anyone know what would be causing the jam. It seems to happen mostly on short...


1) Check all the paper jam locations (see "Clearing paper jams" in your printer manual). A piece of paper might be stuck somewhere in the printer. Even a small torn piece of paper in the printer path can cause repeated jams.
2) If you are using a duplexer, check all the areas (including under the duplexer).
3) Check that the paper is correctly loaded in the tray - that all paper tray adjustments have been made, and that the trays are not overfilled. Make sure the paper is under the front and back tabs. (See the section on "loading paper" from your printer manual.)
4) Check that all trays and paper handling accessories are completely
inserted into the printer. (If a tray is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
5) Check that all covers and doors are closed. (If a cover or door is opened during a print job, this might cause a paper jam.)
6) Try printing to a different output bin or tray
7) The sheets might be sticking together. Try bending the stack to separate each sheet.
8) If you are printing from tray 1, try reducing the size of the stack.
If printing from the envelope feeder, make sure it is loaded correctly,
9) If you are printing small sizes, feed paper short edge first (see
the "Guidelines for printing custom-size paper" in your printer manual).
10) Turn over the stack of paper in the tray. Also try rotating the paper 180 degrees.
11) Check the characteristics of the media you are using. Use only paper that meets HP specifications (see the "Paper Specifications" in your user manual).
12) Try using different paper to see if the problem goes away. Do not use curled, deformed, damaged, or irregular paper.
13) Check that the environmental conditions for the printer are met (see the "Environmental Specifications" in your printer's user guide).
14) Avoid using paper that has already been used in a printer or copier.
15) Check that the power supplied to the printer is steady and meets printer specifications (refer to the "Electrical Specifications" in your printer's users guide).
16) Clean the printer and rollers (refer to the "Cleaning the Printer" section of your printer's user's guide).
17) Perform preventative printer maintenance if maintenance is due (refer to the "Performing Preventative Maintenance" section of your printer's user's guide).

How to make duplex copies with a Brother MFC-240C printer


The Brother MFC-240C is a well-performing multifunction color printer. There is a lot that it can do, but one limitation it has is the inability to make double-sided copies. If you need to make a duplex copy of something, you can do it manually by re-feeding the paper once you've copied the first side.

After the first side of the page has been printed, let the paper sit for a minute or so to make sure the ink has dried. Then, put it back into the paper tray on the top of the stack. Make sure the back side of the page (the side that has not been printed on yet) is facing down, and the lead edge of the page (the edge that was fed out of the printer first) is facing toward the inside of the printer, rather than toward you.

Once the paper is set, push the tray back in and print the document or image that you want to appear on the back of the page. If you are printing multiple pages, position the paper so that the page you want printed on first is on the top of the stack.

The MFC-240C was not designed for duplex printing, so you may run into some issues with it, especially when you are using very thick or very thin paper. With very thin paper, the ink may bleed through to the other side of the page. With very thick paper, you may have to let the paper sit for a longer time after the first side is printed, because the ink could take longer to set and dry.

Verify the input tray is empty, and then check for paper jams, bits of paper, and other obstructions, gently removing any obstructions.Lift the top door or the front cover, depending on the product, to access the print carriage, and then check for any obstructions in the paper path.Gently remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path you might find, and then close the print carriage access door.Open the rear access door.Gently remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path.Check the spring-loaded rear access door rollers to verify that they are clean and can be rolled.check the paper rollers inside the rear access and verify that the rollers are clean and roll upwards.Check the star wheel assembly inside the printer on the output side of the carriage. Verify that it is in good condition and clear of paper bits or other obstructions. NOTE:The star wheel assembly is located inside the printer on the output side of the carriage. The star wheel assembly is a set of small, star-shaped wheels on top and rubber rollers on the bottom. The assembly grips the printed side of the paper, and moves the paper to the output tray after printing.Replace the rear access door and verify that the rollers on the door and the rollers inside the rear access of the product are "matched up" with each other.Press the power button to turn on the product.Step Three: Check the paper type Verify that only recommended paper is being used for printing. The recommended paper types and weights for most HP printers include: Plain paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm) Legal size paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm) Card stock, up to a maximum of 110 lb (200 gsm) Envelopes, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm) Photo paper, 145 lb (236 gsm) NOTE:Supported paper weights and types vary by product. Check the Specifications sheet for your product for more information.Step Four: Make sure that the paper is loaded correctly Gather a stack of plain, white paper and load it in the product's input tray.Use only one type of paper in the stack.Use 10 to 25 sheets of paper in the stack.Fan the stack of paper to make sure that the sheets do not stick together. Tap the stack of paper against a hard, flat surface, such as a table top, to make the edges even.Insert the stack of paper into the input tray.make sure that the stack of paper is flat in the input tray. Verify the right side of the stack of paper touches the right side of the input tray and that the stack is pushed completely into the tray.Position the paper guides firmly against the sides of the paper stack without bending the paper.Step Five: Test the All-in-One Follow these steps to print a self-test page. If the page prints successfully, the product is functioning correctly.Press the Setup button on the printer.Depending on what product you have, perform one of the following:Press the arrow key to select Print Report and then press OK.Press the arrow key to select Self Test eport and press OK.A test page prints.If the test page prints without damaging the paper, you do not need to take any other action.If the test page is damaged during printing, proceed to the next step.NOTE:For printers which do not have a Setup button, check the product documentation to find out how to print a self test page.Step Six: Contact HP If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, the rear access door or the star wheel assembly is likely damaged. To replace the rear access door, contact HP. If the star wheel assembly is damaged, replace the product.Cause There are several possible causes: Bits of paper might be obstructing the paper path and need to be cleared.Unsupported paper types and sizes might catch and tear in the printer mechanism while printing.Paper pushed too far into the input tray when it is loaded, might feed into the printer incorrectly, causing the paper to tear.Paper stacks loaded into the input tray with too many or too few sheets of paper, might feed into the printer incorrectly, causing the paper to tear.Paper stacks that are not properly stacked when loaded into the input tray, might feed into the printer incorrectly, causing the paper to tear.The rollers on the rear access door and inside the product's rear access might not be clean, in good condition or freely rolling.the star wheel assembly might be obstructed or have damaged or missing parts, causing the paper to tear.The rear access door might be damaged.The wheels on the star wheel assembly might be damaged.

Hi Where do I load the paper in my Canon MX310?


The MX310 is a straight through printer. So you put the paper in the rear tray after opening it. Pull out the paper support and adjust the lever for the paper thickness to match your paper specifications. The lever goes to the left unless printing envelopes and T-shirt transfers. Also pull out the paper output tray and set the output tray extension.

Align the 4 corners of the paper stack (if loading more than one sheet) and bend to uncurl the paper (if needed) before inserting in the rear tray. For photo paper and other pages with a print side and a back, place the pages with the print side facing up. Align the paper against the right side of the rear tray and then pinch the paper guide and slide it to the left side of the paper stack. Make sure to adjust the paper size to match in the computer's printer properties (paper size) or in the copy settings on the all-in-one before either printing or copying.

Specific directions and pictures are in the Quick Start Guide that is available as a PDF here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx310#BrochuresAndManuals .

I hope this helps.

SOMETIMES FEEDS UP TWO OR MORE SHEETS WHEN IT SHOULD ONLY BE ONE


many printers have a rubber or cork pad under the feed wheels to hold back all the sheets, except the top one. This one doesn't have that, so we'll try a couple other things.

Pull the tray out and remove all the paper. If you're reusing old paper, that might be your problem. Assuming you have fresh, clean paper, take the whole stack, pinching it at one end, and bow the stack up in the middle. Now pinch the other end of the stack, relax the grip on the end you pinched before, and bend the stack the other way. Repeat.

With every bend, the stack gets more slanted. Now hold one end of the stack and fan the other end to get air between all the sheets. Fan the other end the same way. The tiny layer of air you're creating between pages goes a long way in lubricating them, so they feed separately.

Straighten the stack and put it back in the cassette. The blue "fences" at the sides should be touching both sides of the stack to provide a little friction and keep the feed straight. The back fence should hold the stack against the opposite end of the tray. (Your tray is slanted at the feed end. On models where that wall is vertical, you should have a 1 to 2 mm gap so the paper doesn't bind when it tries to lift.)

Reinsert the tray and try it out.

Printer will not kick out document automatically, attention lite keeps flashing. tray 2 selected but always defaults back to tray 1


Sounds like you have a mismatch in the paper you are trying to print on and the paper that is loaded in the printer. HP printers look to feed paper from tray 1 anytime the computer settings don't match the paper loaded in tray 2. Tray 1 is the multi purpose tray and prety much any size paper can be loaded in tray 1. Double check your document settings and double check the paper size loaded in the paper tray 2 and make sure they match. Also try printing a different document to see if the error persists. If it does this on everything you try to print you should also double check teh rear guide in the paper tray. There is a rear guide in paper tray 2. If it slides back too far it will make the printer think that paper longer than 8 1/2 x 11 is loaded. Push the paper all the way forward in the tray and push the rear guide until it is snug with the tail end of the paper stack.

Paper feed grabs more than one sheet


Try fanning your paper several times. Take that nice neat pile of paper in your hands and wiggle it so that your thumb fans through the edge of the whole stack. Do this on both edges so that the stack of paper is slightly less perfect. You can also gently fold the whole stack slightly in both directions. Do this every time you add fresh paper. It should only take a few seconds.

Envelope printing


I have an older, but similar, 5510 model with the same problem. A partial solution that works about 75% of the time is to tuck the envelope flap inside the envelope and give the end of the envelope that is to feed into the machine a slight curve by gentlly bending it on both sides. Then make sure there are only a few sheets of paper in the paper tray (less than 1/8" thick stack). Position the envelope so it is only about 1/2" from the end of the paper in the tray so the feed rollers have to transport it into the machine. I also have to set the margin for the return address in Word to be 1" from the edge of the paper so it prints in proper position, but this may be a problem with my Word 2000.

You have two issues at same time. 1: your printer may have a jam somewhwere. remove all paper, and open unit cover, and see if you can find any bits of paper jammed, remember they can be minute and will still cause big problems. check thoroughly behind unit too, sometimes it helps to use a torch. When you put paper back in, only place a very thin stack, too much will cause feed problems and jams. Make sure paper rest is correctly installed too, and the paper guides either side are not pressing too tight on paper stack sides, they should sit gently beside in line with it not pressuring it. Also check if roller is even, inside and down back. Flick paper stack in fingers to separate pages and never feed bent dogeared or marked paper into unit, even a tiny little notch in it will catch. Try printing now. The scanner issue can usually be resoved by uninstalling the whole printer and reinstalling it, ensuring a thorough reset. Good luck and post back if no help.
