SOURCE: Printer won't accept Card Stock

Nothing to adjust feed mechanics. If it's temporaly print, you must feeed paper 1 by 1, and when printer grab paper, push paper by hand. If it's routine print, you can adjust the pick up rubber at paper feedr mechanic. Add double tape ( 1 mm, soft) below top rubber. I have done it, and printer can grab/feed paper up to 350 grams.

SOURCE: Can't print business cards. Won't feed from rear tray.

I just spend over an hour on the phone with Canon for the same problem... the resolution is simple. From the Control Panel, select Printers & Faxes. Right-click the mp620 printer, and select Properties. Select Printing Preferences from the bottom of the General tab, then click the Page Setup tab. Choose Print Options at the bottom. Place a check mark in the box next to "Disable the paper source setting of the application software." Click OK 3 times and the problem should be solved.

SOURCE: Epson R340 does not feed paper or feeds it crooked

two things I would do, first carefully flip the printer upside down, (anything that looks like it can flap open, tape it well), and jiggle it slightly and see if anything falls out.

second, i would clean the pickup roller with an alcoholic pad or swab, if its not easily accessible, you will probably need to take the upper an middle casing off, which I dont recommend.

thanks adi

Wont print on card


It is possible that the card thickness is to big for the printer to "pull" the card in. try using a thiner card, giving a small **** of the card to assist the printer while "pulling" the card, or try cleaning the small wheel it has in the paper drawer for pulling paper with amonia.

Glossy A4 paper will not feed. Is it too heavy?


Actually, if printer is new, printer can feed up to 350 grm. But if pick up rubber at paper feeder mechanics had distort/loose thickness, it can't. Try to use 210 gsm glossy paper. Or, if you wish to use 280 gsm, pull down paper while printer grab paper.

Paper will not feed into printer epson r300 printer It tries but does not feed


This is a common prob of all epson printer. If you use more than 230GSM thickness paper with the printer and use 80 gsm paper next, it wont pick up. This is due to the spring in the back side of the paper picker unit elangated to more thickness and fail to function fully. you can remove the paper pickup unit and change the spring if you have the service manual.

Not printing glossy A4 paper / paper jam / no paper feed


dont use thick photo paper like 230 gsm up, instead use 180 gsm papers. but if you dont want to waste the purchased thick photo papers, you can open the back and manually insert the paper once the printing process started. i tried this as a trial & error basis until i had perfected it.... hope it works with yours.

My business cards will not print from Printmaster Gold to HP 2410 Printer. Everything else prints except business cards. I get a box that indicates the are printer but nothing prints.


your cards are too thick .the printer wont actually move the card down to yhe printing heads. try placing just one sheet into the printer or/and go to setup and see if you can set the printer for thicker paper try user defined setting. no promises.

Printing heavy weight invitation stock on Epson R200


The card is probably too thick. Try cleaning the feed roller in the Sheet feeder to improve its grip. Check the GSM of the paper is within the spec of the printer.

Print Garbage


The reason your pictures come out dark and grey is that you have not set the paper thickness on your printer. On the back you will see a flip switch change this setting then feed your business card sheet in there and see the diffrence. Plus make sure your settings for your printer are set for a thicker paper this will fix your problem. Make sure though when done printing your cards that you set it back to the normal or you will have problems printing regular paper documents.
