Hi,

To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

SOURCE: Does not load

Do you hear the Paper clutches activate in other words do you hear the printer trying to pick up the paper, if so then your clucthes are working but, your paper feed tire could be worn, have a tech replace this. If you don't hear this then it's could be the selonoid not activate which means the soleniod or the board.

SOURCE: Paper won't load. Media loaded incorrectly.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

SOURCE: The printer will not pick up the paper

With injet/lower cost printers, a mechanical flag or lever is actuated by the paper. It can be an optical sensor as well, more likely in a laser.

The optical sensor can be gummed up with dust, or paper fragments. A mechanical flag or lever can be dislodged or bent by overloading or pulling jammed paper out, backwards to the paper path.

Your best tool is a bright light and a carefull visual inspection to see if anything is dislodged or dusty in the paper tray or in the receiver for the tray.

Dustoff will clean the dust, care should be used in readjusting the flag or lever.

My printer will not print. The status says out of paper, but there is paper loaded in the bottom


Printers with photo tray have a nominal input tray capacity of 10 mm, or 100 sheets of plain paper. If the tray is loaded above its normal capacity, the printers will not pick up paper.

My photosmart C3150 printer keeps feeding many sheets of paper when it goes to print. This causes a paper jam. How do I get it to only take a single sheet?


Try cleaning the rollers with purified water. See instructions here. Also make sure you fan the paper before loading, try flipping it upside down, and see here. If you have no luck, try another brand of paper, or loading more or fewer sheets...
Good luck, that's a frustrating problem...

Printer says "printer mispik. [enter] to resume. so i press enter and it says the same thing.


Mis-pick means it didn't pick up a sheet of paper, you may need to clean the paper feed roller in the back above where you load paper for printing.

Paper feed


Fixing paper feed problems
  • Ifthe printer is not picking up paper, check to see if there is paper inthe IN tray. If there is not, load paper into the IN tray and press thec00153917.jpg RESUME button.
  • Do not load more than 100 sheets of 20-pound paper in the IN tray. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38 inches.
  • Use the same type paper in the paper tray when you are printing.
  • Makesure that the paper width adjuster is against the left side of thestack but is not blocking the stack. Push in the paper length adjusterto make sure that the paper is fully seated in the printer. Do not pushso hard that the paper buckles.
  • Do not use paper, envelopes, or cards that are torn, buckled, have curled edges, or do not lie flat.
  • Ifusing the IN tray to load several envelopes, push the paper lengthadjuster toward the envelopes until it stops. Do not bend the envelopes.
  • Load only one envelope at a time in the single-sheet input tray and be sure that it is inserted fully into the slot.
  • Use envelopes with square flaps instead of triangular flaps, or tuck the flaps inside the envelopes.
  • Ifthe printer's paper feed rollers become covered with debris (dust orpaper fibers), clean the rollers with a soft cloth dampened with water.
  • Ifthe paper loads unevenly in the printer, one or more of the rollers onthe rear access door is missing. Remove the rear access door and checkto see if all six rollers in the door are present. If any are missing,the door assembly needs to be replaced. This is a customer replaceablepart, number C4557-60076.
  • Ifthe printer does not drop any paper from the wings to the OUT tray,remove the excess paper. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38inches.
  • Ifthe printer is sending more than a single sheet through at one time,remove the paper from the IN tray and separate any sheets that arestuck together. Reload the paper in the IN tray.
  • Ifthe printer is not ejecting paper, then turn off the printer. If yourcomputer is turned on, turn it off. Then, turn on the computer. Wait afew seconds. Turn on the printer.
    NOTE: If you continue to experience paper feed problems, try other media or paper types. Refer to the User's Manual for supported media types and specifications.

Paper feed on Canon i 350n ink jet printer


If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
Press the power button to turn the printer off.
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
Close the front cover.
Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that:
The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
The printer is on a flat, level surface.
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.

Paper jam


Sounds like the pickup roller is worn or dirty. Try cleaning the pick up roller for the tray. If this doesn't work the pick up roller will need to be replaced.
