In the printing process, paper jam more frequently occurs on bad paper handling rather than mechanical failure of the printer. So,to ensure that printing process runs smoothly please pay good attention to the following tips before loading the paper in paper tray of your printer.
Align the edges of paper neatly before loading. Loading paper without aligning the edges may cause paper jams.
You are possible loading the paper in up-side-down. Try loading the paper flipped over. A lot of kodak photo paper have bar-codes printed on one side for the printer to scan and verify you are using the proper paper for the printing job you assigned to it.
The printer trays accommodate most sizes and types of paper, transparencies, or other specialty media. Follow these guidelines when loading paper and media in the trays: - Envelopes, labels, and glossy paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) only. - Transparencies and custom size paper can be printed from Tray 1 (MPT) and Tray 2. - Fan paper, transparencies, and labels prior to loading them in the tray. - Use only paper envelopes. All envelopes should be printed single-sided only. Some wrinkling and embossing may occur when printing envelopes. - Do not overload the paper trays. - Adjust the paper guides to fit the paper size. - If excessive jams occur, use paper or other media from a new package.
If there is an "X" on the color cartridge indicator then there is a problem with it. If you have removed the plastic tape that covers the part that connects to the computer and you still have this problem then the cartridge is defective and needs to be returned to the store and exchanged for another that is good. Exchange the cartridge and install the replacement. This should solve the problem with the printer not recognizing a full color ink cartridge.
You mentioned that the printer cannot take paper. Please clarify what happens when you load the paper tray and try to print? Are you loading paper one page at a time using the external feeder or are you loading the paper tray full with paper before trying to print? If your loading page by page or filling the tray with only a few sheets of paper then try loading a bigger amount of approx 1/2" of paper. It is easier for the printer to grab paper when the try has a good amount in it. If it still will not load the paper when the tray is full and inserted correctly, please advise what happens when you try and print - exactly? Does the printer respond to the print command sent from the computer? Does it make attempts to load the paper and then fail and stop? Does it pick up paper and then show a paper jam? Does the printer do anything when trying to print from your computer? Answer these questions and I will help you solve this problem right now.
Loading your paper
Paper loading tips:
● Load paper with the side to be printed facing down.
● You can print photos and documents on a wide variety of paper sizes, from
8 x 13 cm (3 x 5 inch) up to 22 x 61 cm (8.5 x 24 inch). The 10 x 15 cm
(4 x 6 inch) photo paper is available with and without tabs.
● Before loading paper, pull the Main paper tray out (use the Main tray release or
the tray grips) and slide out the paper-width and paper-length guides to make
room for the paper. After loading paper, adjust the guides to fit close to the edges
of the paper without bending the paper. When finished loading paper, push the
Main tray back in all the way.
● Load only one type and size of paper at a time in the same tray.
● After loading paper, extend the Output tray extension to catch your printed pages.
