Printer will not feed paper

I hit print on my camera and the paper will not feed into the printer. The top sheet only feeds in about an inch. The camera then displays "no paper". How do I fix this? I just replaced the ink cartridge.

Re: Printer will not feed paper

Mine did that too.
I found that propping the paper feed cassette up at the end away from the printer worked.

Re: Printer will not feed paper

Check that the plastic pressure plate in the feeder is correctly in place to help prevent extra sheets being drawn in causing it to jam. Ensure that the feeder is not resting on anything. If the printer has been used previously (i.e. not brand new) it's probably worth cleaning the rubber feed rollers that draw the paper in with a damp cloth to remove any paper dust that will prevent the rollers from gripping the paper.

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blank pages


I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus printers, but I'm going to hazard a guess. If the paper does not move at all, the paper pickup feed mechanism is at fault. One of two methods is used to pick up the sheet. Either the front lower portion of the tray is lifted up to force the top sheet into the feed roller, or the feed roller is connected to a drop-swivel to drop the feed roller onto the top sheet of paper. You'll need to look carefully at the feed mechanism to determine if a gear or clutch is failing. If the paper moves into the machine about 1/2 inch and then stops, either the first paper feed roller past the pickup roller may be at fault. Also check to see if the paper sensor between the paper pickup roller and the first feed roller is working properly.

How to install paper in oki microline 320 turbo printer

Paper Loading

Rear Feed, Continuous Forms

Use the rear-feed path for printing on single-thickness,

continuous-form paper.

Use the single-sheet path (top feed) for graphics or charts.

! If you have paper in the paper path, be sure to remove it

before installing rear-feed paper.

1 Lock Lever

2 Upper Tractor Cover

3 Pins

4 Lower Tractor Cover


1 Move the paper lever to the position marked "REAR."

2 Grasp the tabs lift off the paper separator.

3 Pull up on the lock levers and open the tractor covers.

Then, move the right tractor to fit the width of the paper.


4 Place the first two holes in the paper over the tractor pins

on either side. Close the tractor covers.


5 Move the left tractor to align the edge of the paper with

the appropriate reference mark (1). Then, push back the

lock lever.


6 Adjust the position of the right tractor to center the holes

in the paper on the pins. Then, push back the right lock



7 Install the paper separator. Place the wire guide (1) on the

pull-up roller assembly (2).


8 Press FF/LOAD. The paper feeds into the printer.

! The factory default setting for the Top of Form (where

the printing should begin) is one inch down from the top

of the page. To change the setting, see "Using Your
Printer, Top of Form (TOF)."

Top Feed (Single Sheets)

Use the single-sheet path for letterhead stationery, memos,

and individual envelopes.

! If you have continuous-form paper in the path, press

PARK to remove it before loading single sheets.

1 Make sure the printer is on and deselected (SEL light off).

2 Place the paper lever in the position marked "TOP."


3 Open the carriage cover. Raise the paper separator to the
single-sheet position.

4 Make sure the wire feed guide (1) is secured in the sheet


5 Adjust the paper feed guides (1) for the width of the paper.

Place a sheet of paper in the separator. The paper will feed

into the printer.

Thanks, Joe

When i give print command the paper was jammed in printer.

The following sections describe how to load media into the different input trays. CAUTION: If you try to print on media that is wrinkled, folded, or damaged in any way, a jam might occur. Priority feed slot The priority feed slot holds one sheet of media up to 163 g/m2 (43 lb) or one envelope, transparency, or cardstock. Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed facing up. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side media guides before feeding the media. Back to top 150-sheet main input tray The input tray holds up to 150 pages of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper or fewer pages of heavier media of 25 mm (0.9 inches) or less stack height. Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed facing up. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and front media guides. NOTE: When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding through the printer at one time, reducing media jams.

The printer is feeding a blank sheet of paper between printed sheets. How do I rectify this?

This causes the printable area on the page to be that much less (10 3/4 or 10 1/2 on an 11 inch page). The software thinks the paper is 11 inches long and keeps track, down to the micro inch, where it is on the paper. When it reaches the 10 1/2 inches, your printer calls the page done and ejects it. However, the software thinks there is still another 1/2 inch to print (usually the footer area). Now when you insert a new sheet of paper, the software finishes printing the rest of the page (normally a blank footer) and form feeds to the next sheet. To correct what the software thinks the paper size is, you need to run the Preferences application and change the default settings. Select the Printer button. In the next window, select the 'Change Defaults....' button. Change both the Document size and the Paper size to a height of 10.875 and click OK. Try a new document to see if the paper size is correct. You may need to go back and change the height a few times until it is correct (the height changes in .125 increments). Usually either 10.875 (for 1/4 inch forced top margin printers) or 10.75 ( for 1/2 inch forced top margin printers) will work.

Hi, i have a lexmark x4550. The pick up roller (the roller that grabs the paper and feeds it into the printer to get printed on), is not working, at least one of them isnt (there are two i think,,, but on...

Try the following: take an A4 sheet of paper and glue a 2 - inch strip of sanding paper onto the top of the sheet (full width of the page). sanding paper should be about 120 grain.
Now feed the page with the sand paper first (rough surface on top) into the paper inlet. grab and hold the paper, then press paper feed or send a print job. The printer tries to feed you special sheet, but you won't let go. This will sand off the gunk from you feed rollers and give a bit of rough surface to the rubber. Repeat if needed, it should cure the problem.
This works if the problem is the roller surface, it will not fix a problem with misalignment or a missing/broken spring in the feed roller mechanism.
regards, the perfessa

Paper feed on Canon i 350n ink jet printer

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
Press the power button to turn the printer off.
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
Close the front cover.
Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that:
The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
The printer is on a flat, level surface.
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

Won't feed paper while printing

I just obtained a printer with the same problem. When I opened it up I discovered a plastic gear that had cracked and was not turning the main paper roller as it was slipping. It looks like the solution is to replace the roller if you can find one or to repair the gear and epoxy back onto the roller. I am trying the later.

Paper not feeding

Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.
