Paper feed does not pick up properly

Hi there, When I use my samsung printer, every 2 sheets of print outs requires me to refeed the paper. It doesn't pick up the paper properly and I have to open and shut the front paper door constantly to get it to pick up. Is there something wrong with my toner? should I replace that to try and resolve the issue?

SOURCE: Samsung CLP-315 prints half a page and then stops

Hello,

It sounds like your fuser is causing the jame,.

when you remove the paper can you wipe the toner off the page or does it adhear to the paper ?

If it does not the fuser is causing the jam, if the toner does not wipe off the paper then the feed tires would be the cause of your jam

The fuser is at the back of the printer and will be very hot, so be careful.

SOURCE: Constant Paper jams on CLX-3175FN

The fact that there appears to be no actual jam tells me that it is not picking up paper out of the tray. Try some alcohol on the pickup rollers, rubbing well. If that helps, replace these rollers.

SOURCE: Not picking up paper

Most new printers and copiers will attempt to feed paper several times before failing and giving a jam condition. It sounds like that is what is happening to your printer.

Your tray rollers may be dirty. Remove the tray and use a clean cloth with mild detergent to clean the rubber rollers. Do not use alcohol this will dry the rollers out. If problem continues replace the tray rollers.

SOURCE: NO PAPER FEED

This is a design flaw with this printer. Try stretching and/or replacing the two coiled compression springs under the output flap of the paper tray. This should work for a few weeks, then you'll have to repeat the process. I stocked up on a few pairs of springs at Ace Hardware.

It's a shame, because the print quality on this printer is superb, considering the price, but dealing with this issue is a real pain. I've replaced the springs 3 or 4 times, and I haven't even used up one toner cartridge yet. I'm on the lookout for a replacement low cost color printer. I would never buy a Samsung printer again.

Hi open the printer and remove the toner cartridge. Locate the feed roller and wipe it off with a cloth with a little water on it. NO Alcohol. That should get feeding again. Thank you, Steven 805-520-3003

The printer was printing OK. Suddenly the paper refeed into the printer. I removed the paper but now the printer is not feeding paper. I think I may have move or disloged a sensor in the paper feeder...


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:


1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

My samsung printer is not picking up the sheets of paper correctly and they seem to be sticking on the roller


It could be a dirty pickup roller in printer. Found following advice from Samsung:

Printer will not feed the paper depends on following possibility.
  • Paper Type:
    • If surface of the paper is too smooth, pick-up roller will not feed the paper.
    • In such case, try with different type of paper.
  • Pick-up Roller:
    • If the rubber roller is worn out, it will not feed the paper from the tray. There is not enough friction to feed the paper.
    • Pull the paper tray out and clean the rubber roller.

My Ip90 won't feed paper when I try to print a job.


Hi there,
If the paper does not feed properly it could be due to the follwong causes.

Cause 1 : Inappropriate paper type used
Action : * Check to see if the paper you are printing on is too thick or curled.
* Check if the paper exceeds the load limit mark, if it exceeds, load less paper.

Cause 2 : Paper Feed Roller is dirty.
Action : Follow the steps described below to clean the Paper Feed Rollers.
If envelopes or post cards do not feed properly, even after correctly any paper curl, clean the Paper Feed Roller.
1) Ensure that the printer is turned on and there is no paper loaded in the printer.
2) Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button down and release after the POWER lamp flashed there three times.
The paper roller rotates as it cleans.
3) Repeat this cleaning operation one more time.
4) Load a sheet of plain paper in the printer.
5) Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button down and release after the POWER lamp flashes three times, then feed a sheet of paper.

Cause 3 : Paper jams.
Action : Remove the paper according to the following procedure.
1) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the Output Slot Cover, whichever is easier.
* If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, open the Print Head Cover and remove it.
Caution: Be careful not to touch any components inside the printer.
* If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the printer off and turn it on again.
The paper will be ejected automatically.
2) Reload the paper into the printer and press the RESUME/ CANCEL button.
If you cannot remove the paper or if the paper tears inside the printer or if the Paper Jam error continues after removing the paper, contact the Customer care center.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

Hi, the paper feed into the printer does not work properly. when printing the sheet will try to deed in, then stop. I can hear the roller still moving until the error lights go off. To get a sheet to print...


get yourself a can of electronic contact cleaner in a arisal can. spray this on a rag and clean the paper feed wheels and the seperator pad (cork piece about 3/16 x 1inch) located right under the paper pick wheel.these wheels get glue build up on them and become slippery the contact cleaner will remove the glue with out leaving a residue behind

Samsung CLP-300 picking up too many pages


Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Paper jam is a very common problem with the printers.

First of all clean off the rubber piece that pulls the paper into the printer from the tray with rubbing alcohol, and also take a knife to the rubber piece to rough it up to create more traction.

To clear the paper jam problem you need to remove the back roller mechanism to get at paper. If still the problem persists, then check the following to resolve the issue--

1. Please check all interlocks, electrical and signal connections are seated properly.
2. Front cover, back cover and lid are closed properly.
3. Power plug and USB cable are connected.
4. Printer is turned on with switch on the back.
5. Toner signal lights sequenced, with yellow overall led on.
6. There is some noise of paper roller movement.
7. Toner signal lights all out, overall status light turned to red
8. No visible paper in paper tray or anywhere else.
9. No paper in tray---added paper
10. Waste toner container is full or not installed ---empty, installed properly.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

You need to change the pick up rollers for your printer if it pulling the paper unevenly... but first check to see that the paper size adjuster on the tray i self is set to your paper likeness.....adjust to the correct paper size if not...

Not printing


There is probably a paper jam in the tray feed path. The other situation is that the tray paper pick up roller has become hardened/polished, or the paper tray paper is greasy. First step, take the paper from the tray, and fan it out, so each sheet is separated from the next. try it with jut a dozen or so sheets, change the paper.

Thoroughly check the paper feed path.

If not working, then check/clean the rollers.
