There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For as hort fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.

Hi

This can be caused by a number of things:

The fuser
The ETB
The toner cartridge
The firmware
The printer needs a cleaning.
The slot in the printer.
Incorrect Media.

Try cleaning the printer, use a lint-free cloth for the ETB, DO NOT touch the belt with your fingers, the oil from fingers will often make things worse.
Always use a lint-free cloth, if you ever encounter dirt inside the printer, dampen the cloth.

Calibrate the printer.
From the printer's control panel menu
Configure Device-> Print Quality-> Calibrate now.
(Press the Checkmark key to advance through menus)

Thanks
Rylee

    To check if its fuser. Just put a sheet of paper in the manual feeder in the front of the ITB drawer. Print a configuration page and when the back edge of the paper reaches the bottom of the feeder, open the back of the printer to stop the printing. Now open the itb drawer and look at the unfused sheet and see if the defects are present. If they are it is not the fuser. If the defects are gone, then it is the fuser.



    Thanks

  1. Remove the imaging drum from the printer.
  2. Rotate the black dial (jam clearance door lock), located on the top, left-hand side of the imaging drum, counterclockwise. Figure 2: Jam clearance door lock c00182096.jpg
  3. Lift upward to open the black jam clearance door near the green handle on the top of the imaging drum. Figure 3: Jam clearance door c00182097.jpg
  4. Remove the paper from inside the imaging drum. Figure 4: Paper removal printing half sheet - c00182098.jpgttp://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/c00182098.jpg" alt="c00182098.jpg" class="h_mi" />

  6. Reinstall the imaging drum in the printer.

NOTE: Do not touch the white sleeve in the imaging drum when removing the paper, as fingerprints will cause print quality issues. If necessary, use a lint-free cloth to gently wipe any fingerprints off the white sleeve.

That is probably not any software issue, both the machine have the same memory size , and they are going out of RAM because of the document format.

To find out if it is a software problem , print a copy without using the computer.

Welcome to Fixya! Are these 2 Machines Connected to each Other? If they are, It sounds like a Software issue, Otherwise they would not Both be doing the Same thing. Uninstall and Reinstall your Software and see where we can get. Let me Know.
