Re: Printer makes nail marks in the paper

NO, if you open up the fuser section the fuser rollers are probably shot. They have to be changed, I usually show my clients what I'm talking about when they need a part. it gives them a better perspective of how bad and what I'm talking about.

If you can live w the copies like that then it's o.k. for now, but they will have to be changed eventually, some models you can change the rollers without the whole unit and can cost you less.

We have a 4250. When printing from our software we get a message that reads "manually feed tray 1" or "click the check mark to print from tray 2". No matter what settings i change i...

This is often caused by software asking for paper that is not loaded in the printer. You can use the paper path test function in the diagnostics menu to ensure that tray 2 is working properly. Also check your driver settings to make sure that the paper size shown in the driver matches what is actually loaded. You need to also check and make sure that the paper type for tray 2 is set for plain paper, otherwise the printer will only print to that tray if you ask for the paper type that is set.

When i print any photo it can't print error show E3

hi, look at this post maybe can solved your problem not all Error E3 means your printer part damage but maybe somethings inside it that makes the printer look likes paper jam,
Canon MP198 Printer Error E3 is because something inside of the printer that makes paper sensor not function properly. To fix this error E3 you must open inside of the printer to remove the things.

Look at the paper sensor there is must be somethings in it. I found this when my printer Canon MP198 got error E3. I found small part of paper in the sensor that makes sensor not function properly. I just remove the paper and the printer working again.

Hi my omni 3200 printer is not printing. The page

You either have the wrong paper in the machine or it is in backwards. It takes thermal paper. Run your fingernail across the paper and if it makes a mark, that is the side which must be facing up when it goes trough the printer.

Epson T88...won't ink....paper does come out, but blank.

This is a thermal printer so make sure you have thermal paper. Take your finger nail or the end of a pen and rub the paper. It should make a black mark from the heat you generate on it. Also make sure the treated side is up,

Hp l7590b no paper load

hi friend,
Step 1Turn on your printer. Make sure it is plugged into an electrical outlet and installed properly.
  • Step 2Wait for your printer to stop. Do not load paper while it is printing or running any kind of maintenance operation.
  • Step 3Prepare your paper. Make sure your paper is right side up (glossy, whiter or label side should be facing up). Make sure all the pages are lined up together, like a deck of cards.
  • Step 4Locate your paper tray. Some printers have a manual tray and an automatic feed tray. Refer to your printer’s documentation to find the automatic feed paper tray.
  • Step 5Place your paper in the tray. For 8.5 by 11 inch (standard) paper make sure the 8.5 inch side will be fed into the printer.
  • Step 6Set the paper guide. This is the movable piece on the side of your paper tray. One side should move and the other should not. Move your paper so it touches the side that does not move, and slide the paper guide so it touches the other side. Some paper guides have markings so you can set it to the exact measurements if you know the size of your paper.
  • Step 7Set the paper thickness lever. Refer to your manual to determine which setting this lever should be at. Generally, standard paper does not need a different setting and special media like glossy photo paper or envelopes should use a thicker setting. You can usually access this lever the same way you access your ink cartridges.
  • Step 8Let your printer know what it is printing. If you are using a special media, then set the options before you print. Click “Properties” on the print dialog before you print something. From there, change your media type to whatever kind of paper you loaded.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Fan your paper back and forth before lining it up to load into your printer. This prevents static build up which is the leading cause of paper jams.
    • If your printer doesn’t feed the paper correctly at first, try making slight adjustments as it tries to feed to find the right spot.
    • Refer to your manual for in-depth paper loading instructions.
    • Many printers have a resume/cancel button. This is to be used when you need to load paper mid-print job.
    • Do not overload your printer.
    • Avoid non-standard media types such as loose leaf paper with holes or folded or wrinkled paper or anything with affixed stamps or stickers. These can jam your printer.

    OMNI 3200 OUT OF INK

    a lot of times there are issues with the paper cup lid not closing all the way. Try to apply preasure to the lid of paper cup and re-print a receipt and/or report. If still not printing.. Check the paper... make sure its thermal. To test you paper if it thermal... use your thumb nail and run it across the backside of the paper. If it thermal it will leave a faint gray mark the "shinny" side of the paper.

    No ink comes out on the tag

    This is a thermal direct printer so it has no ink per say but uses a heat sensitive paper. You can test the paper by taking your thumb nail and scratching like your keying a car. a fast swipe to make some friction and the heat will leave a blank line on the paper. if it leaves no mark its just plain old paper and wont work. you will need thermal direct paper. also in printing defaults in the driver the darkness may be too low and need to be raised, but check the paper first.

    Canon pixma ip 8500 won't feed paper

    I have discovered that my problem was a one inch nail which had at some time been dropped into the paper feed slot. It could not be seen from the outside of the printer and was only discovered when I removed the side trim and top cover. When closely inspecting the nylon roller system that feeds the paper out, I saw a tiny piece of metal that looked out of place. Further probing then loosened the nail back to the paper input area.
    My printer is now back in full operating condition after spending a couple of careful hours finding out how to remove the trim.
    A well worth while exercise in my case.

    Paper not feeding

    Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.
