    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.

Paper is constantly jamming on right hand side-as you face printer-it feeds in unevenly as soon as I start to print.


Remove all print paper from the paper tray. check if there are any dust particles or any other substances that might be jamming the paper. That is the only fix.

Hp deskjet 5550 is always had a paper jam. what do you think is the problem of my printer? what is the possible solutions?


When removing a sheet of paper from a jambed printer, you need to be careful to slowly remove the paper without tearing the paper. This could lead to a tiny piece of paper being left behind and this will cause other paper jambs.
When this happens, the printer may need to be dismantled to remove the paper.
The other cause could be that there is uneven pressure across the rollers or dirty rollers which causes the paper to feed through unevenly and results in a paper jambs.
Check the printer for pieces of paper near the rollers and gears.
Clean the rollers, make sure there are no deposits on the rollers.

Lexmark 7675 paper jam


> feeds unevenly

Usually, there are two, maybe three, rollers that should _evenly_ pull the paper through the path.
Check that each roller is making good contact with the paper.

> out of paper error-message

There's a small sensor, and usually a "finger" that rises when the weight of the paper is not sufficient to hold the finger down. Check for "dust" clogging/blocking this finger.

If all else fails, it's time to take the printer to a qualified technician, for a professional cleaning & tune-up.

Paper feeds crooked then jams?Used less paper different paper it just pulls the paper in unevenly the jams. Help


Check feed roller for contamination, fan the paper to seperate sheets and then make sure that you are using paper of the following standard:
Paper Type Thickness Weight Single sheets
(plain paper) 0.003 to 0.004 inch
(0.08 to 0.11 mm) 17 to 24 lb
(64 to 90 g/m²)

Make sure you are using paper supports and feed guides.

My Epson Stylus CX6600 will not load paper into the machine.


With a flashlight, look into the throat of the paper feed mechanism. Remove any foreign material. Also, look at the edge of the paper you're trying to get it to accept. If the edge is uneven or the paper is the wrong thickness, problems arise. Located at the far left side of the paper outfeed slot, there is a lever to select between cut paper and envelopes. Position this lever to correspond to the paper you're trying to insert

Uneven paper feed


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. (On the X83, press the Select 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.

Paper jamming and feeding unevenly


I have the exact same problem. Until last night it worked perfectly, and when it ran out of paper, I put more papers in the back of the printer correctly and since then it won't print, it pulls paper to the right and the paper jams. I tooked the printer to the service and they say that I'm lucky that the warranty did not expired yet, cause the problem is a "manufacturing mistake", and that they will take it to the Canon service.

I realy hope they will do the job. I'm expecting to repair be done till tomorow.
