SOURCE: cant load paper into my printer



My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to loading the paper    . I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.


Please try below steps if you want to know how to load paper in to the Feeder.:

Important: When loading paper into the feeder, make sure you are using separated (i.e., cut) sheets of paper. Banner paper that is connected end-to-end should not be used unless you are specifically printing a banner.

To load separated sheets of paper:

  1. Obtain a fresh stack of paper.
  2. Separate the paper by bending it back and forth in an "S" shape before loading it into the printer.
  3. Place the paper against the right side of the sheet feeder, with the print side facing you.
  4. Gently insert the paper into the feeder. Do not  force the paper down into the printer.
  5. Squeeze the release tab and the paper guide together, and slide the paper guide to the edge of the paper.

Humid conditions may cause some sheets of paper to stick together.


If the issue still persists,  then I recommend you to look in to USER MANUAL that is provided along with Printer for instructions on loading Paper.


Well, for your convienience I'll provide you with steps that helps to access USER MANUAL.................


Steps are :

  • If the Lexmark P4300 software is already installed in Windows:
    1.  Go to Start, (All) Programs, and point to Lexmark P4300 Series. 
    2.  Select User's Guide.

  • If you have not yet installed the Lexmark P4300 software, you can find the User's Guide on the installation CD.  Do the following:
    1.  Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive. The Lexmark installation screen should appear.
      • If the screen does not appear, open My Computer and double-click on the 4300 Series icon.
    2.  Click on the ?  icon to the left of View User's Guide (including setup troubleshooting).  You will be asked whether you would prefer to save the User's Guide to the desktop and view it from there (Yes), or to view it from the CD (No). 
    3.  Select the option you prefer.
  • This should resolve the issue for you.


     If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at . I'll be glad to help you.

      Some people have reported success soaking them overnight in distilled water or isopropyl alcohol. I have tried both methods and ended up having to replace the heads as they did not clean.

      If you do not print weekly with a Kodak printer, the ink can dry inside the heads and they stop printing or start missing lines that cannot be fixed by using the kodak cleaning cycle. . I have had this happen to two of my Kodaks. To prevent this, if you are not using them regularly, print a test sheet weekly and you should have no problem. At this point, your best bet is to order new heads for your printers and then maintain them with weekly test prints.

      Printer head has a problem

      Was it HP original, or a "generic"? Always use OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) print heads, it usually saves headache. These print heads have chips on them that keep track of usage, most "generics" are just cleaned up used OEM that are not worth the time. If you purchased an OEM you need to contact HP and have it replaced, keep you receipt of purchase for proof.

      Brother mfc MFC-5440CN magenta issues

      If you have used generic ink the head is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore.

      Last chance is to use original brother ink which has cleaning fluids within the ink. Run the cleaning procedure twice and simply print 10 PAGES afterwards. Wait A DAY AND TRY TO PRINT IN MAG AGAIN:

      If there will be no mag. the ph is definitley clogged and needs replacement.
