I have two 1100s and have never had that problem. However, somewhere I read that the 1100s are "famous" for the problem you describe. Apparently there is a kit available from HP (possibly even EBAY)to replace the feeder. I remember seeing the item, but don't remember the cost.

Printer jams when duplexing


Most printer jambs are caused by a couple of things. Have you tried different paper? Sometimes paper that is curled, or if the humidity is too low, the paper will hold a static charge and cause paper feed problems. The other is worn or dirty feed rollers, try cleaning the feed rollers with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.

Hi,

To clear a paper jam:
  • Pull Carefully
    If the sheet of paper is visible at the output slot of the printer (in other word, it stopped on its way out of the printer), try pulling carefully on it. If it pulls smoothly and easily, then carefully pull it the rest of the way out. If there is resistance, then stop and go on to the next step.
  • Open the Cover
    Open the printer cover and wait (in the case of an inkjet printer) for the carriage to stop moving. Carefully, slowly pull out any paper that is caught there.
  • Take Care
    Do NOT pull paper out from where it was feeding into the printer (where the blank paper enters the device). The rollers on your printer may only go in one direction, and if you force them the wrong way, you could damage the machine.
Be careful of the following:
  • Laser Printers
    If you have a laser printer, be very careful when pulling out the paper -- laser printers can get hot.
  • Paper Shreds
    If any paper tore, either during the jam or while you were removing them, remove any appliances that you can (paper trays, etc.) and look for the shreds of paper. Try to make sure nothing has been left behind.
If you have frequent paper jams:
  • Don't Overload
    Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
  • Check the Paper
    Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
Goodluck..

13.02.00 paper jam on tray 2. i have removed the tray and even the catridges but can't find any paper. I don't know where the sensor is as this may be the cause as well. Please need urgent...


Number 1 you failed to mention what kind of printer you have.
Number 2 when you print, does paper even feed into the printer?
When was the last time that you replaced the feed rollers?
Yes it is possible that a sensor is jammed. Before the 13.02 error,
did the printer actually have a paper jam? If yes, was there a piece of paper
missing from the jammed sheet or was it whole?

I have a brother mfc 7420 and every time I print it tells me paper jam, I pull the paper tray out fix the paper push start it tells me paper then I have to pull out the cartridge and pull out the paper...


Sounds like there is something in the paper track that's causing this to jam. Its not always easy to get small particles cleared just by removing the jammed paper.

This may not help everyone that I send it to, but it is worth a try.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press
the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer.
The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

When trying to print the printer pulls in more than 1 sheet of paper causing a jam in e.ta


just folowe the steps

1. 1
Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or metal tools inside the chassis.
2. Step 2
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
3. Step 3
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
4. Step 4
Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.
5. Step 5
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.
6. Step 6
Use the carriage access door to reach a jam further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to clear the jam.
7. Step 7
Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

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.

Paper jamming in printer. Pulling one side before the other causing it to jam... Brand new, bought Sunday


Answer:
Fixing a printer paper jam
When working with any printer it's inevitable that you'll encounter a paper jam. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this occurs.
1.Turn off the printer.
2.Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
3.Remove all paper trays and any paper that may be stuck between the tray and the printer. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
4.Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.*
5.Turn the printer back on. If you continue to receive a printer jam error try repeating the above steps again. If issue still persist and you see no paper that is stuck in the printer it's likely your printer is experiencing another hardware issue and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional assistance and/or repair.
* To manually remove paper pull on the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper while pulling it. If you're unable to get to an edge of the paper that allows you to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer.
Preventing a printer paper jam
As mentioned earlier it is inevitable that you will encounter at least one paper jam during the life of your printer. However, if you're encountering frequent paper jams following the below steps can help prevent paper jams from occurring.
•If your printer has a paper tray do not fill the tray to capacity. If you're encountering frequent paper jams reduce the amount of paper you place in the tray each time it is filled.
•Make sure you or the tray feeding the paper into the printer is aligned properly and/or the slider used to hold the paper in place in the tray is snug with the paper. Many printers have sliders that allow different types and sizes of paper to be fed into the printer. If the slider is not properly positioned it can cause paper jams.
•Use standard office paper; folded paper, paper with labels, and specialty paper such as hard bound paper can often cause paper jams. If you're uncertain with what type of paper you should use with your printer your printer documentation will list the types of paper compatible with your printer.
•Do not mix the types of paper you're feeding into the printer at one time. If you need to change the type of paper or size of paper being used removed any other paper currently in the printer before inserting the new paper.
•Examine the printer for any previous stuck paper in the printer. Previous paper jams, torn paper, printing labels or other foreign objects in the printer can cause reoccurring printer jams.

Hp psc 1315 paper jam


Hi,



. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.
