Hi, most printers usually have rubber pickup rollers that get worn out with time. Usually cleaning the rollers with rubbing alcohol will restore the rollers for a while. Sometimes getting to the rollers takes a long Q-tip but cleaning with a rag is best. Good luck.

Paper feeder grabs several pieces of paper at once


The spot in which the paper is fed into could have a fence/blocker. Use wood or a little hunk of aluminum to only allow 1 sheet. You could get fandy and use a rod that could also be mounted on the font.Be crea8tive and good luck.

Paper slipping Lexmark X2470


Leading cause of paper jams or misfeeds is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach 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 carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Try using a cloth (not a paper towel) with some water on it and clean the feed rollers. Also no alcohol.

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers
haitchhcee
p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

HP Printer not pulling paper


Check for a jam in paper feeder, look down back with a torch, open up unit and search inside, have a pair of tweezers handy as jams can occasionally be very minute and hard to grab.

Printer problems


I understand that you have not used it much. But you need to make sure the rollers are clean. Take it apart and make sure nothing is on the rollers. If that does not help, check on the printer and see if there is a reset button to reset the whole machine. It may be malfunctioning for some reason and this should fix the problem. If that does not help you will have to take it to a tech.
