Question about Samsung SCX 4200 All-In-One Laser Printer

Printer won't work, paper jam.

Ok, so we got this printer like 9 months ago, and its been working fine, we're replaced the ink cartridge, and so thats not the problem, but when we try and print, it warms up for a while, and then always says paper jam, so we just open the back and front doors, and it starts warming up again, it doesn't seem to be able to grab the paper, and if i feed it straight into it it comes out the back door like totally wrinkled and is like covered in ink, some in a powder form...

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

After paper jam printer displays error light and will not function


1. Step 1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
2. Step 2
Turn off the printer.
3. Step 3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
4. Step 4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
5. Step 5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
6. Step 6

jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a00/3f/31/clear-printer-paper-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

7. Step 7

jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep7 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a00/3f/31/clear-printer-paper-1.7-800X800.jpg'); }); If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper . Don't force anything, though.

8. Step 8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
9. Step 9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

Epson Stylus Photo R800 driver ran out of ink weeks ago. Today new ink cartridges arrived. Replaced all cartridges (even the ones that were ok) because the printer's low ink light would not go out until I...


His could be because epson print jets plug up. and usualy cost more to repair than to purchase new printer. i had epson and now buy HP because hp when you replace the ink cartridge the spray jets are incorporated into the cartridge the only thing you have to be carefull of is that somel manufactures now put a chip on the cartridges to expire the units so they can sell you another even if you dont use the ink HP included so look for exp. date on new units. look into food warehouses like sams. costco, Bjs etc. they usualy have good prices on printers. sunday paper is also a good place to look.

Kodak 5100 will not print consistently


I am currently having the same problem with a 17" iMac Intel Core Duo.  The printer worked fine for a few months, now it will only print in black and white and sometimes in color that is extremely faded.  I have tried every troubleshooting tip in the book and still no luck.

Paper jam


After changing my blank ink tank, I have the same problem. Finally discovered that it was not fully clinked in. Once it was push in till it clicked as per instructions, the printer is printing beautifully once more.
