Printer won't accept my paper

I'm using 8 1/2" x 11" paper, and the printer stops the operation and gives me a message that the paper is too narrow.  I have not been able to get it to print.

My printer won't print letter automatically. It's stuck on printing only legal. If I pull legal tray out it will print letter. But I need it to adjust with alternating print jobs.

Printer wont stop paper, if any page length mismatch,Select page length as any size, as well as while shooting the print command select page length as legal & try it. I feel that teflon not rotating properly, result paper jamming at bottom end. If any paper length faulty printer detects the length give message of mis match..Pl check carefully...

I continue to receive "paper too narrow. load with wider paper" message despite using 8 1/2 x 11" paper. This was not an issue I've ever had before and am using the same size (standard) paper as I always...

Check the Paper Size Settings.

The only document I found at that may seem to address your issue is the following:

Overheat message comes on.

First, you need to make sure that you are using the best settings for your printer. Here are a few things to consider:
1) Environment - If this printer is stored in a cabinet, under a desk, on the floor, etc., it is likely that any heat created by the fuser doesn't have room to escape properly. Be sure to give at least an 1.5" clearance on all sides.
2) Power - The parts inside of a printer are all rated to operate using certain voltages. That being the case, you need to use unregulated power (i.e. - wall outlet) to make sure the parts are given as much (and only as much) power as necessary to operate. Using powerstrips rated at different voltages can create either not enough or too much power which could mean the fuser operates at too low or too high of temperatures.
3) Media - Make sure the paper you're using is rated properly for the printer. Most printers accept a certain paper weight (found in the owners manual). Contact Dell if you've misplaced this.
4) This particular printer isn't rated for too high a speed, which means the fuser shouldn't have to run as hot. If you still get overheat messages, you could try updating the firmware on the printer at or even contact their technical support.

Printer shoots out blank paper

Hello. More than likely, there is an issue with the paper feeder itself. My HP printer did the same thing, and HP took care of the problem for me. If you call the manufacturer, you should be able to send it to them and they can fix that issue. If you have any questions, please contact me at

Printer won't accept paper

What jam code are you getting. I suspect a registration clutch issue. But there should be a code associated with the jam.
I would like to look that up and narrow it down for you.
