One possibility regarding paper jamming is the weight of the paper you're using. For example some printers have difficulty feeding 20 lb. paper. I suggest that you first try loading your printer with a lighter weight paper, starting with 12 lb. paper. If that works, then move up to 16 lb. paper. If that fails, then consider cleaning the rubber rollers that control the paper feed.
If you follow the web link below it will give you instructions on the pins (there is a diagram of the connector) you short to get the Ck Engine light to blink out codes, the list of code is at the link as well.
Your first consideration is paper weight. All printer paper, inkjet included, is measured in gsm or grammes per square meter. A very lightweight paper for your inkjet printer would be 60gsm. When you walk into any store and buy a **** (500 sheets) of inkjet paper you'll find that the stock on display is 80gsm. This is a general purpose weight paper suitable for photocopiers, inkjet and laser printers.
What if you need a heavier weight paper? This shoulnd't pose a problem in any well stocked office supply or computer store. Inkjet paper also comes in 90gsm, 100gsm and higher grades. You'll find that heavier papers give you crisper text and less ink bleed also. Do bear in mind that every inkjet printer has a maximum paper thickness it can handle. If you're buying paper in weights of 110gsm - 125gsm consult your printer documentation before you feed very heavy paper through it - otherwise you risk seriously damaging your printer.
Apart from the weights you also have a wide variety of styles. Paper for your inkjet printer can also be purchased in bright white variants. These are designed for single sided printing of important documents or presentation pages. This type of paper is more expensive but if your goal is to impress then it's money well spent as ther results are truly impressive.
Have you told the printer what type of paper you are using? If,for example, you were using a heavy weight paper, like a 67 bond paper, and now you want to use a regular 20 pound paper, but have not told the printer about the change in paper weight, then the printer will not feed your paper properly. It is expecting to have to move 67 pound paper through the rollers which move the paper, but is encountering a 20 pound paper. That difference in paper weight will cause your printer to spin uselessly, trying to move a very light paper into the mechanism.
Try to set the paper properties to match the weight of the paper you are actually using, such that the paper and the mechanism, are equal and see if that makes a difference.
''grabber'' roller out of work sometimes, you may try
1) there is a input paper sensor around roller, the roller out of runing if the sensor is not senitive enough or sensor switch dirty,
clean the sensor as you can find it,
2) Lighter-weight paper feeds and prints fine, which means this paper input sensor works ok, but you need to make sure they are same paper input sensor,.
3) the paper surface bright and the roller worn could be cause paper feed fail, you need clean the roller anyway. still not fixed, you need to adjust the roller pressure by increase the spring force.`
I had the same problem, you can solve this by: 1. Push the card multiple times in/out the slot or 2. Use a little bit of contact spray on a small piece of tissue, rap this in the length around the memory card just 1 time. Be carefull not to make it to thick that it get stuck in the slot. Then push the card multiple times in/out the slot or 3. Cut a small strip of waterproof sanding paper (grain: 400 or more - the surface feels just like paper, and is just a thin as paper) just as wide as the card or slot. Cut a strip of plastic (eg.old credit card) also just as wide as the card or slot. Rap the sanding paper in the length of the strip and insert this in and out the slot. But!! ... make sure you stay at the upper side of the contacts, don't worry just do it carefully, don't use force and sand the contacts a couple of times. This way work for me, finally!!
HP recommends papers with ratings of at least 90 for brightness and 75 g/m2 (20 pound) weight.
before u proceed....remove the rear access door to reveal the rollers.Take a slightly wet cotton cloth and wipe the rollers in the upward direction 4 times.Close the rear access door.
now do as said - START
-PRINTERS & FAXES
-CHOOSE THE PRINTER ICON THAT
HAS BEEN HIGHLIGHTED WITH A
- RIGHT CLICK
- PRINTING PREFERANCES
- PAPER/QUALITY TAB
-Create a new custom paper size that is dependable on the paper you are using
- type a name & SAVE
if the problem still insists the report back and do mention which tool you are using for the printout.
if its heavy pearlized paper then i do not think th eprinter would accept it . it maintains its own standard weight to detect the paper.
