Brother laser printer wont print on cardstock My brother printer won't feed teh card stock paper. It used to work but now it won't feed it, normal paper works fine. Even if i nudge the card stock paper, it still won't feed. My printer won't feed through cardstock to print on. It will feed through normal paper fine but it just won't work on cardstock. Is there any way to print on cardstock or should I just give up trying.

If there printer is not able to print on card stock then check the recommend
card stock paper thickness, if the printer works with normal paper but not card stock then there is problem in the card stock and by using this paper may also damage the rollers on the printer and make the printer useless ...

Good luck...

Hi,

One of the main reasons for printing issue is the presence of corrupted or updated drivers in the system. For proper working of Brother printer, users are recommended to update the printer driver software. The outdated drivers may popup error messages and may result in serious malfunctioning of the printers. Users may need to ensure that they choose the correct and corruption free drivers for the printers from the genuine websites.

Phaser 7400 bypass feeder feeding cardstock much too fast


You need to make sure you set the proper paper type for the tray you are using. (Plain Paper feeds much faster than card stock)

Also recommend you use the bypass tray and open the rear door so the cardstock goes straight out the back of the machine and not delivered to the top.

It curls all my cardstock!


You will get alittle curl on all prints with this unit, as the paper path is curled ** paper collected from the bottom tray will travel in a semi circle to exit the unit** but if the curl is excessive then it is possible the card stock is just alittle too think for the unit or the card stock is damp, if you are in a humid location its best to store you paper and cards in a dehumidifier box

Will not print evenly on cardstock business cards


This can be caused by the cardstock slipping to one side as it prints. Make sure when you print you are using the card stock settings found under your printer setup - paper type. Check to make sure that the paper you are usng is meant for your printer, most printers are meant for up to a certain pound of paper eg 120lbs. and going over this could mean that the paper is too heavy for your printer which causes the rollers to slip as it pulls the paper through your printer.

Looks like toner is not sealed to the paper.


the machine is only designed for 80gsm paper. you can change paper type through printer options in printer manager to card stock. it wil probably not work though as it is really only designed for 80gsm paper. the toner need to be heated to 200oC inorder to fuse to the paper cardstock absorbs less heat than normal paper.

Paper keeps jamming


To print card stock you must us the manual slot in the front of the printer and feed one at a time. Also open the back flap door so the card stock can exit out the back instead of trying to bend around for the try. That will give you the staight paper path that your thick stock needs.

My Printer works fine... except it won't feed business cards or card stock


You cant fix this because brother printers are limited to paper:
paper that weights more than 200g wont run through the paper feeder.
