Paper feeder rattles & doesn't send printed sheet all the way out

Sounds like a wheel isn't clicking into place when the printer starts up and when it begins to pull a new sheet to print. At the end of each sheet, it doesn't get it all the way out.






The product is a Canon i250 inkjet printer - not on any of your lists.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam


  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

  • 2

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

  • 4

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    There is something preventing the printer to grab the paper to keep it from printing. I have checked to make sure that nothing is inside there, and there isn't. It rolls like its going to print,...


    Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. If you are physically able and willing, carefully turn the printer upside down. Any foreign objects or debris that may have accidentally fallen into the feeder should just freely roll out of it. If feeder is clear, place the printer down. Open the printer cover and make sure the paper path in the cartridge area is free from obstructions. Close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reload some paper and try to print again.
    If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

    The paper isnt going through


    If the paper feed rollers are not clean, they may slip and cause paper feeding problems.
    The problem may be alleviated by performing paper feed roller cleaning.

    1. Open the Printers folder.
    - For Windows XP Home Edition Click/Select "Start," "Control Panel," "Printers and Other Hardware," and "Printers and Faxes."
    - For Windows XP Professional Edition Click "Start" and "Printers and Faxes."
    - For Windows 2000/Me/98 Click/Select "Start," and "Settings," then "Printers."
    2. Right-click the icon of the printer for paper feed roller cleaning, and select Properties from the displayed list.
    3. Click the Maintenance tab and click Roller Cleaning. 4. Remove all sheets of paper from the auto sheet feeder, and click OK. 5. Confirm the message to be displayed, and click OK.
    Do not try other operations until printer's operation completes.
    6. When the printer's operation is completed, follow the confirmation message to load three new sheets of A4 or letter-sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder
    7. Click OK.
    8. Confirm the message to be displayed, and click OK.
    Do not try other operations until all the three sheets are ejected.
    Memo: The printer prints nothing on those sheets.
    9. When all the three sheets of the paper are ejected, paper feed roller cleaning is completed.
    10. Click OK.
    Performing Roller Cleaning is completed.

    Epson stylus DX3800 All in one printer, scanner Unable to print


    Open the printer cover and look closely for tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. If you have a canned air, try blowing out the paper path as those tiny piece of paper might be blocking the paper sensor.

    Epson stylus C43UX. my printer keeps saying paper jam and paper not loaded correctly and just spills out the paper i load. the paper is loaded perfectly but it just wont print! the stupid red light just...


    The printer reports a paper jam because the paper feed system cannot feed paper.

    Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. This is presumably not happening! Can you what does happen?

    If the expected movements are not happening, you need to remove the printer top cover to see what the problem is and resolve it - perhaps the ASF has come loose or something. This is easy if you know how to do it - otherwise it's likely to cause you to take a large hammer to the task! If you need help on this, please report back with a new post.

    Not feeding paper looks like wheels not turning


    Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. If this is not happening, it means something has come adrift inside the ASF system. This will require the printer to be dismantled. Take it to a Technician, or if you want to have a go yourself, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide further assistance on how to proceed.

    Lexmark e320 thumping on feed


    Hi,
    The printer may report load paper when there is enough paper present in the feeder, however this could be due to number of reasons such as if there is something which is blocking the paper to flow through the feeder anything for example, some foreign martial like a pen or a pencil, please find few steps below to fix this issue.

    1. Confirm that no foreign materials are inside the machine.
    2. Confirm that usable paper is set.
    3. Confirm that the paper is set properly.
    4. Confirm that recommended paper is used, and the number of sheets are not exciding the required number limit.
    5. Adjust the paper feeder guide to the sheet size.
    6. Disconnect the printer power cord as well as the printer cable form the printer.
    7. Turn the printer upside down and shake the printer in order to remove any obstacle which is stuck inside the printer causing the paper jam error.
    Open the printer cover and remove the cartridge and check carefully if there is any small piece of paper which is stuck inside, if so carefully remove it.
    8. Disconnect the printer power cord and press and hold the power button on the printer for about 15 to 20 seconds( this will release the flee power) and reconnect the printer and check.
    9. Try to rotate the wheel inside the feeder if you can reach it, to ensue that it is free enough to pull the paper.
    10. Try printing with having only one sheet in the feeder and check if it does work.


    Should you require any further assistance regarding the printer or even any other compute related issue please feel free to contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.

    Dell 1600n Will only print with sheet feeder open


    Rollers may be worn out and not properly grabbing paper or a gear may be broken. You should be able to inspect by lifting cover to feeder and watching as paper is pulled through.

    My Epson C 84 had something jammed into the paper feed and once the item (a blind pull from the window) was dislodged it will not fee paper or print. any words of advice?


    It seems likely that the feed mechanism has been dislodged or broken in some way.

    Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. If this is not happening you will need to dismantle the printer to investigate further.

    If you wish to do this, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide further help.
