The driver for this printer has a setting for thick paper. It is toward the end of the list of paper types in the HP supplied print driver. When "Thick photo paper" is selected, the printer releases some of the tension on the pinch rollers as the paper is being fed in. Otherwise, the paper is too thick and the last set of rubber rollers will not grasp it. Unfortunately, this feature is not included in the updated driver for Win XP. It only exists in the original Win 95/98 driver. It is not even in the HP supplied Open Source driver for Linux, either. I still maintain a dual-boot machine with Win98 SE because of this very problem.

    If selecting thick paper did not cause it to print properly, the large rubber print rollers may have dried out or hardened, so to speak. If that is the case, it is a pretty difficult problem to solve, as the rollers age and aren't adhesive enough, for lack of a better word. The symptoms of this is that it will start to feed the paper, enough to lift the paper sensor into thinking the paper is printable. But it doesn't quite get the paper under the print head, and it prints all over the inside of the printer mechanism instead. Several companies sell a product which is supposed to be a "printer roller rejuvenator", which primarily softens and swells the rollers a bit. I haven't used the commercial products, but I fixed mine with some regular household concoction from the garage.

When I print a thick blue line (about 3 inches thick) is printed also. How do I get rid of this?

Go into the computer and the click Printers and then Maintenance. do all the cleaning tasks including the one that cleans the paper path if there is one.

If you are printing a line that thick the inkjet head is releasing too much ink. If your menu is on card, you can only print successfully if the printer has a straight pass door at the rear of the machine so the card remains flat. The cardstock will smudge as it passes around the rollers. You can get over this by printing on quality paper and then putting them in a menu folder. I did this with my Inn's restaurant menus. The bar snack menus were printed on card using pass though and on a laser printer..

Duplex printing with card stock paper jams in back on Brother MFC-9840CDW

I would try manually inserting the paper for the back side. Most of the time it's best to wait a few minutes before trying the back side to give it time to cool so it will lie flat.

when you hit 'PRINT' the window that opens up to complete the job will have a button called 'preferences'. Check to see that the paper selected isn't photo paper. You will have you choice of paper type thickness and size.

Printing on thick paper

Paper type refers more to size & finish.

Glossy card stock, I would state the size of the paper & for the output quality pick best.

<print>::<properties> is a printer dialog, makes little difference what application it was called from.

Printing on glossy thick paper

perhaps the glossy thick paper isn't the indicated for the printer.
Try to change type of paper.

Can't print onto thick card

Have you tried specifying the paper type and weight INSTEAD of the tray. Set the tray properties first, then print. If you leave it on auto tray it will use the tray that matches your paper type and weight.
