Do you hear the Paper clutches activate in other words do you hear the printer trying to pick up the paper, if so then your clucthes are working but, your paper feed tire could be worn, have a tech replace this. If you don't hear this then it's could be the selonoid not activate which means the soleniod or the board.

My Polaroid z300 stopped printing pictures and keeps telling me to load it even though there's paper inside. How can I get it to print again?


It could be that the paper supply sensor isn't properly activated, or a new sheet isn't being picked up. Try removing all sheets of paper and inspecting with a flashlight.
I once assisted a frustrated elderly friend with a similar situation, and discovered that a white kleenex tissue had found its way into the paper loading mechanism! Her initial inspection had not detected it because it was camouflaged!
On another occasion, the rubber feed rollers didn't have enough friction to pick up a sheet of paper until they were cleaned with rubbing alcohol.
Good luck!

My printer will not print. The status says out of paper, but there is paper loaded in the bottom


Printers with photo tray have a nominal input tray capacity of 10 mm, or 100 sheets of plain paper. If the tray is loaded above its normal capacity, the printers will not pick up paper.

Paper pic-up


The first thing I would try is to clean the paper feed rollers:

1) Remove the paper and power on the printer
2) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button until the power lamp flashes three (3) times, then release
3) Cleaning will start automatically
4) Wait approx. 30 seconds for cleaning to complete
5) When the power lamp lights, repeat #2 above

I suggest repeating #2 at least 5 times. Then you are ready to see if a single sheet of plain paper will feed.

1) Load a single 8.5 x 11 plain sheet of paper
2) Press and hold <Resume/Cancel> button until power lamp flashes three (3) times, then release
3) The paper should be picked up and fed through the printer.

You may wish to repeat this process as well (#1 and #2 above) to insure the paper is being picked up to your satisfaction.

My photosmart C3150 printer keeps feeding many sheets of paper when it goes to print. This causes a paper jam. How do I get it to only take a single sheet?


Try cleaning the rollers with purified water. See instructions here. Also make sure you fan the paper before loading, try flipping it upside down, and see here. If you have no luck, try another brand of paper, or loading more or fewer sheets...
Good luck, that's a frustrating problem...

Printer says "printer mispik. [enter] to resume. so i press enter and it says the same thing.


Mis-pick means it didn't pick up a sheet of paper, you may need to clean the paper feed roller in the back above where you load paper for printing.

Load paper


Hi,

To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.

Paper Jam Error Message


I would try to clean the tires with alcohol, it's probably trying to pick up the other sheet but is slipping.

take out the tray and look inside for the pick-up and seperation tires.
