    My printer was working fine. Today it kept saying out of paper. I would put it back in. It would try to pull it through...but would still say "out of paper"

    amber colored light keeps blinking and message "out of paper" when infact there is paper in the printer. The paper will not go through the machine.

Paper jams on epsonXP605 expression printer


Printing photos from the back feed? Using special photo paper? Try cleaning the paper rollers that feed the paper. They get slick.

My printer has the blue light on the lightbult and low toner (but ink is fine) - it will not print anything. The stuff sits in the print queue and i have to eventually delete it. The report will print...


My work-around for this problem is to feed paper in manually through the front. I turn the printer off and make sure all paper is out of the printer. When you turn the printer on - and the blue light stays lit (if it doesn't turn it off and wait - I've had to wait quite some time sometimes).. then manually feed 1 sheet of paper in the manual feed tray at the front. When the paper is inserted... you should be fine to print - and keep feeding paper in until you get your job. If you miss - you might need to hit the "continue" (triangle button)..
I've been trying to find out why mine locks up - and why it keeps jamming - but this is a tried and proven menthod - althought it is annoying it might help you for now.. Good luck

I am trying to print my guest receipts and it is only printing out a quarter of the sheet with no ink.


hello, lets see if we can seperate problem with computer and printer, try running printers self test, i am curios if the machine will print properly, turn printer off, then hold paper feed button and turn machine on, paper will feed and print, once the first test pass, if you want to print the rest, press paper feed button, and machine will print and cut paper, this test is rather a little long, but it will give you info regarding paper feed, and cutting as well as impressions. if paper is dragging, check to see if the paper in machine is in correctly, you might want to check this out first, if the paper is in correctly, then problem is feeding, this is a little hard to clean, but you might want to try some isoproply alcohol and put some on the lead in paper, just enough to get paper wet, and try to allow machine to feed in, or maybe, if paper is already feeding in wet some area before going into machine with alcohol, and press feed button, and allow the paper to feed thru. tear off paper and try the printer test again. if still fails then machine has a problem and will need service.

Feed 1 paper at a tym


try freeing up the paper before you insert it into the printer. an easy way to do this so to "fan" the paper by holding one end and letting each paper on the other end be released one by one. 
another thing is that you may be inserting the paper too much inside the paper tray. try inserting the paper slowly and stop at the first slightest notch you feel

No paper feed (brother MCF-440CN)


Had a similar problem with the MFC-885cw. Turns out that , if you have a photo paper tray installed which sits just above the main tray, you need to puill it all the way back towards you otherwise it blocks the paper feed. Not the best design feature I've ever seen.

Hp LaserJet 1100: Runs louder than normal and continuously, BUT will not grab paper and print


Fred shine a flashlight down the paper feed throat and see if the feer roller is rotating when the printer tries to print.
I have had to replace many of the feed rolls and separation pads in this series of printer.
the tires get dirty or worn and feed multiple sheets or none at all. check for obstructions as well-sometimes the black mylar sheet which sits in front of the feed roll gets in the way of the paper path and has to be pushed in place. I have also seen paper pieces stuck next to the paper path switch which is visible after removing the toner cartridge. hope this helps.
