Re: paper is jamming
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
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud

Sometimes a very small piece of paper can still be in the printer paper path after clearing a jam especially if the paper tears while removing the jam. The piece of paper may be too small to notice. Try blowing out the paper area with compressed air. Other causes could be the thickness of paper you are trying to print on, ie photo paper, thicker bond paper. Make sure the print settings match the paper thickness. I have a Lexmark laser printer, and I will get feed problems if the settings are not set for the correct paper type.
There may be an obstruction inside the printer. Try this....remove the paper from the paper tray and put paper in the handfeed tray (front of the machine) If it feeds from that tray it means that the feed rollers in the bottom cassette are worn.
no you might have a paper jam somewere and mabe you ink rollers are dry you might have to tell the printer to to a pre test and clean and if there is a paper jam it should be a slot on the back by the roller should be a tap that shows the tollers look for a pice of paper jammed somewere in the roller you migh have to take the paper out to inspct it for a paper jam and if none mabe the print heads are dry and it dosent feed the paper then could be it ok clean the print heads tell the printer to to a roller clean and then after that if no paper jam no were try printing a page take all the paper out and feed it manually and if it prints then some printer want feed if you have filled the paper tray up try putting less and then try
just check to see if there is any obstructions were the paper is going through, unplug printer cables, press power button for 20 seconds without any cables connected, it will refresh printer memory, connect cables back,try photocopy, if nogo, printer fualty
1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a
clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure
your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom
persist? 2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look
closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer;
this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they
will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you
can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display
window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error
1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual
feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be
looking for paper in another tray. 2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.
. Switch off the
printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge
inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or
any metal tools inside the chassis.
2. Pin down the exact
location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet
completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and
print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.
3. Take off the front
paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the
printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
4. Pull the sheet with
both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper,
leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.
5. Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.
6. Use the carriage
access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to
remove the print carriage to get to the jam.
7. Replace all parts and
return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug
your printer back in and flip the power switch.
