Dell 1720 printer single-sheet feed stopped working

Printer prints fine from paper tray drawer, but only grabs paper from manual feed, then shows Paper Jam and stops feeding paper any further. I've used canned air, turned rollers on bottom inside-out and shaken printer while upside down (it, not me!). Any other ideas?

    Thanks, but not really a solution. Of course I pulled paper out of single-sheet feeder when it stops. I then have to power printer off/on to clear the Paper jam light, and only way to continue is to print from paper tray - which is not what I want to do!

SOURCE: HP paper jam

That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

I have a Dell 5210N mono printer. And I want to use the manual feed tray as a second paper drawer for letterhead paper only, ie leave a whole stack of paper in the manual feed. Then when I select manual...


Check the software provided or installed on your Computer you use for work(printing software), look for print properties, check for print settings, look for manual Feed, Under manual Feed, set it for letterheads, however this has to correspond with the Applications you are using to print letterheads out of( under print, into the preferrences you should be able to have the settings as well). If your printer software does have these settings, then you will have to do it Manually upon every print.

My D7460 will not feed paper The screen says load paper face down in main tray.


Usually this occurs when a printer has had fairly excessive use. This causes the rubber paper feed rollers to become shiny and then they are unable to grab the paper, or it grabs several sheets at the same time. Newer laser printers have now have grooved belt tracks to help prevent this problem.

The easiest way I have found is to BUFF the shiny tracks... Here´s how... Using a ladies nail file (sand paper type) Press the paper feed button to cause the rollers to slowly rotate and buff the rubber as it turns. Making sure no sand enters the rollers. If several sheets of paper feed at the same time. Pull them out and a trick to stop this happening is... to fan the paper before loading into the paper tray. The trapped air will allow the sheets to glide easier.

My laserjet 1020 develops a paper jam after printing the first page of a multipage print instruction .I have deleted the printer and re-installed it including all drivers but problem still...


Hi,
Reinstalling the printer is related the Software.
If the paper gets physically jammed than its the driver setting issue or hardware issue.
Check if two sheets get jammed or only one sheet.
If it is two sheets than printer is picking up multiple sheets and paper gets jammed.
If the printer is jamming a single sheet than remove the Tray and look there is rubber roller inside if there are marks or lines on that rubber roller or if the roller roller is worn out than that rubber roller called as paper pickup roller need to be replaced.
If that looks fine than try to priny using manual feed and if the problem persists from manual feed too than try another toner cartridge
If the problem is not from Manual feed Tray that Replace the main Tray with known good Tray and check if the issue resolved.

Dell 1320c printing error "no paper detected"


I had the same problem. I removed the paper tray, turned the printer on its side and manually moved all the working parts on the bottom of the printer - rollers and switches..

When I reinserted the paper tray, everything worked fine.

PS. I ordered and returned a new paper tray from Dell, that was not the problem.

Dell 922 All-in one ink jet printer paper feed


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

Printer Jam - when i put a sheet of Avery labels, printer jams


When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to www.avery.com and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.

Not printing


There is probably a paper jam in the tray feed path. The other situation is that the tray paper pick up roller has become hardened/polished, or the paper tray paper is greasy. First step, take the paper from the tray, and fan it out, so each sheet is separated from the next. try it with jut a dozen or so sheets, change the paper.

Thoroughly check the paper feed path.

If not working, then check/clean the rollers.
