Brand new printer, paper stops in path

On the config page the value for vertical registration is -2.1*. The asterisk indicates this is not a default value. My thinking is if the system was set on default, the vert reg would be correct and the paper would move through the path without jamming.

What do you think?

It's obviously not a brand new printer if the default has been changed, and if you're able to check that, then why not just try it?
But....
No, that wouldn't cause jamming, because changing the registration is simply changing the timing of the machine to move the image up or down the page, so regardless of the setting, it will still jam at the same spot. (I assume at the registration roller).
Is the paper setting set for the correct size and orientation of the paper you are actually using? That's what it sounds like to me. Otherwise, check paper switches.

Dell 3010cn prints only blank pages


Dear Anna: Like your problem is related with the laser unit (ROS ASS), I mean, the printer do not print to the paper the image that have or could have in the drum.

We need to test if this is the problem. To do this, please, with much care: turn on the printer, wait it do it the initial test (5 to 15 seconds more or less), verify have paper in the correct position and the size too in the tray. Print a "config page", but not from "Windows, instead of the same printer. For do this: press Menu, with the vertical or horizontal litle sparrow , chose "print information", then choose "config page" and press the central key to execute it.(See page 32 of this document: http://configpages.blogspot.com/2012/01/dell-3000cn.html)

If you want, look this links beside: ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_printers_main/esuprt_printers/dell-3010cn_User%27s%20Guide_en-us.pdf.

And: http://configpages.blogspot.com/2012/01/dell-3000cn.html

If the config.page was printed well, the printer is not the problem. Try to uninstall the drivers of this printer and then reinstall the right and updated drives from the DELL web link and test again from Windows now.

But if the config. page was printed "in blanking", we have other problem, like the lasser unit.

If you now how to get out a page was have a paper jam in this printer, do it the following actions, if not, do not follow please, because could cause a major problem.

I will give you the actions to take it if you do not resolve the problem with the indicated. Please give your information that what happened.

How do I factory reset a Lexmark x658de?


When you first enter the printer menus from the operator panel, you may notice an asterisk (*)

next to a value in the menus. This asterisk indicates the factory default setting. These settings

are the original printer settings. (Factory defaults may vary for different countries.)

When you select a new setting from the operator panel, the Saved message appears. When

the Saved message disappears, an asterisk appears next to the setting to identify it as the

current user default setting. These settings are active until new ones are stored or the factory

defaults are restored.

To restore the original printer factory default settings:

1 Make sure the printer is on and the Ready message appears.

2 Press Menu until you see Utilities Menu, and then press Select.

3 Press Menu until you see Factory Defaults, and then press Select.

4 Restore appears on the second line of the display.

5 Press Select.

The message Restoring Factory Defaults appears followed by the Ready

message.

When you select Restore:

No other button actions are available on the operator panel while Restoring
Factory Defaults appears.....

Reset printer


Please print printer settings configuration page. The page will explain the printer menus and change values. Menus are represented by Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load/Remove Paper light sequences. Menu Items and their values are indicated by Paper Jam and Error Light sequences

Here are the instructions to do that:

1. Turn off the printer.

2. Open the front access cover

3. Press and hold the red Stop button while powering up the printer.

4. The lights should cycle, release it when the light stops cycling.

5. Close the cover once the ! light displays

6. The lights should cycle again.

7. Then press the Continue button.

8. This should print a Printer Diagnostics page.

9. On the Printer diagnostic page, Use the Utilities menu to troubleshoot printer problems

- Return the printer settings to factory default values.

- Sometimes resetting the printer to the original settings solves formatting problems.

- All menu items are reset to the factory default values except:

- All settings in the Parallel menu, Network menu, and USB menu.

- All downloaded resources (fonts, macros, and symbol sets) in printer memory (RAM) are deleted.

- Resources in flash memory are unaffected.

10. Please locate the value that would say "Factory Defaults".

11. We would need to follow the exact light sequence that you see for the "Factory Defaults".

12. Press and release the Cancel button to advance through the menus and the menu items to the one we would need.

13. Press and hold the Continue button until all the lights cycle to save the function/value.

14. Restart the printer.

HP color laserjet 4600 dn printer How do I set


From the control panel of the printer, do the following:
1. arrow down once to highlight the 2nd item: "paper handling".
2. press the check button (turquoise color) to select this option.
3. arrow down 2x's until you highlight the "tray 2 size".
4. hit the check button to select this item.
5. You should see a size that is "letter" and there should be a ' * ' asterisk which means that is the default setting. If you see other paper sizes as well, then arrow up or arrow down to highlight the preferred size, and then press the check button to insert the asterisk ' * ' which will set that as the default.
6. you change the paper type as well as paper size for the other trays in the same fashion. Most HP printers will select paper according to the SIZE as well as the TYPE. The printer can "sense" the paper size in the paper cassette tray by the stops that hold the paper. Therefore the printer will choose that paper based upon the SIZE and what you define as its type.

My HP LaserJet 2430dtn Paper jam


Try this, make a print from the by-pass tray, does it go OK or jam??
If it jams then there is a problem with the paper feed from the tray.
If it jams then
1-check the drum and see if there is an image on it( you can put a mark on the edge to see if it's rotating, thus eliminating the drum unit)
2-same for the reg roller
3-check for labels ar foreign objects
