Paper will not feed

When print command is initated the paper will not fully feed. Sounds as if the wheels are spinning but not catching the paper for proper feed.

    When I click "print" the paper will feed a little and then it sounds like it's just printing in the same place (paper not feeding through). I have to pull the paper back out (not THROUGH) and the error message comes on the printer screen that I have a paper jam.

Knwrght is correct in his answer. If you look inside where you would when you change a cartridge, look to the far left side where you can see white gears. There should be a gear on the end of the shaft that runs the paper up to the print head. Look for pieces laying in the bottom of the machine.

There is a gear that normally breaks, or cracks and it does not finish feeding past the print head, no parts are available for it unless you find one for sale with a different problem, you are stuck

How to change paper


This product uses 2 1/4in (57/58mm) wide standard thermal paper. Use the feed keys only when changing the paper. Do not pull the paper manually.

1. If prompted during use, or when setting up the printer for the first time, open the printer compartment by lifting up on the tabs located toward the back of the register. This will expose the printers.
2. Depending on each sides needs, use the release buttons to open the paper wells and release the print rollers.
3. Place the paper rolls into the paper well so it feeds from the bottom of the roll towards the front of the cash register (not the back). Pull the paper up and past the print heads towards the front of the cash register.
4. Once done, close the printer arms and use the feed keys to advance the paper.
5. To attach the journal roll to the back of the winding wheel, remove the wheel from the comparment. Put a small fold in the end of the journal roll and feed it under and around the tabs located on the wheel. Spin the wheel manually to take up paper slack.
6. Once the paper is attached, place the wheel into the holder in the back of the printer compartment. The part of the winding wheel with two discs should be on the right side.

It won't feed. How do I install the paper?


Try clean the tiny black roller in the back of the black plastic (see picture). It doesn't pick up the paper when it's too dirty and dusty. I wetted a tiny piece of paper towel with alcohol, pressed it on the roller and pressed the "feed" button so that the roller spins and gets clean up. Hope it helps.

Our printer is printing everything off center and skewed to the left so you can't read the amounts. What can we do to fix it?


Sounds like an uneven paper feed. Check the paper path and clean the rollers/wheels with isopropil alcohol and a Q tip. Also check the printing element that it is not catching on the paper.

My printer attemps to grab the paper but does not for either copies or from a computer command


The paper feed roller(s) are probably dirty.If you can reach the the roller that pulls in the paper try to clean it with alcohol or kitchen type cleaner if you do not have alcohol make shure it is fully dry before trying to print.You can also wet one sheet of paper with alcohol where the roller will grab it and tell it to print while firmly holding back the paper as you do not want wet paper to feed into machine repeat if needed

Hi, the paper feed into the printer does not work properly. when printing the sheet will try to deed in, then stop. I can hear the roller still moving until the error lights go off. To get a sheet to print...


get yourself a can of electronic contact cleaner in a arisal can. spray this on a rag and clean the paper feed wheels and the seperator pad (cork piece about 3/16 x 1inch) located right under the paper pick wheel.these wheels get glue build up on them and become slippery the contact cleaner will remove the glue with out leaving a residue behind

Not taking paper


yes, clean your paper feed roller with rubbing alcohol on a microfiber towel sounds like a traction problem.

Paper doesn't advance through the printer


Hi, Sounds very much like the feed rollers are worn out. If you can get to them without too much trouble you can clean them up with regular rubbing alcohol and a rag which will help the paper feed. You might also want to try unpluging the printer and trying to roll the paper feed buttons by hand and seeing if a piece of paper will feed through without catching anywhere. If it does catch somewhere, then you may very well have a small piece of paper jammed in the paper path causing the jam. Good luck.

Paper feed not working


remove the paper from the machine and look where it feeds in. There should be some rubber rollers, try cleaning them with a rag and some rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't work let me know. Also fan the paper before loading it. John
