    keeps flashing---out of paper

  • user456 Apr 14, 2009

    I have the same problem:



    "Status light keep flashing and message says paper tray contains no paper when it is full. Tray had been removed several times and have unpluged machine, still message says paper tray is empty."



    My printer is less than 3 years old, and even I tried taking out the casette and look at the white gear on the left, there is no help.



    I found that on right of the casette the indicator of whether the paper is full or empty, it fails to work too - when the tray is empty the indicator shows full. How can I solve this problem of status light keep flashing "no paper"? Will it help if I replace the casette bay?



    Now with the "no paper" signal on the printer cannot even function. Please help! Many thanks!

Pull cassette out and look inside the cassette bay on the left side. there is a white gear that lifts up your paper. that might have come unseated. make sure its seated in right by pushing it back in. last but not least, make sure you don't have your rear paper stopper in cassette pushing paper too hard against the front of cassette preventing paper from raising up.

Keep getting misfed paper message. can't see paper


Check the paper tray. The part at the end of the paper might not be keeping the paper pushed to the front of the tray. Remove the tray and check the rollers that feeds the paper. They might be slick. Clean them with some WD-40 sprayed on a rag.

Paper tray is full and the paper light keeps flashing.


First check the machine for paper jams. If not, remove the paper from the paper tray and reinstall it. Then try to print from the MP tray.If this works, check paper size settings on the printer driver, or the small black arm which hangs down next to the paper pick up roller, and is the paper sensor.

it may be one of two problem, to start off with try using one of the other trays or the manual feed. to see if it's just that tray or the machine. you may need to cancel all jobs in the printer before starting and also keep the main tray open. let me know what heppens.

Thank You,

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back
