If you don't have a friend whose computer has a floppy disk drive, your local library may have one. Open and print out the instructions or save the file to a USB flash drive. I hope you are talking about a 3.5" floppy, not a 5.25" soft floppy !

Hi,

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..
Thanks
Thiru

Intermittent floppy disk drive for Husqvarna Viking Designer 1


These 3.5-inch floppy disk drives are never produced by the manufacturer of the device, but by one of a few floppy disk drive manufacturers (usually Sony) and as such, should your disk drive start to fail, you may be able to disassemble the case of the Viking Designer 1, remove the floppy drive, and insert another standard floppy salvaged from a tower-type PC, thus fixing the problem.
Since 3.5-in. floppy drives are becoming more and more scarce in modern computers (in favor of CD-RW drives) you may have a obsolete tower computer (remember Windows 98?) in your basement (or your friend's basement/yard sale/flea market/www.Craigslist.org/www.eBay.com) that could supply a useable FDD (floppy disk drive).

When i try to run a disk it says the disk is not formatted do i want to format it now. the disk has information on it so it has to be formatted .


It is possible that there are errors on the floppy disk or the disk was formated using a format that is incompatible with the current operating system. If the disk is readable on another system, the best solution would be to copy the files onto a portable USB flash drive, then reformat the floppy disk using a filesystem that is readable on the desired computer.

Try a brand new disk put something on it and go from there the disk you may be using may be no good anymore. Try this first before getting another replacement disk I would stop using these floppy and go to a USB Stick for storage purposes since they are going obsolete. Just a suggestion! That would solve your problem using floppies for storage besides they do not hold much information compared to todays storage devices. John

Where is the disk drive for a floppy disk located at on the tower


Sorry, but it appears that the EMachines model W3503 does not have a floppy disk drive installed. See this link: http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/emachines-w3503/1707-3118_7-32178774.html

Floppy disks are obsolete at this point. If you have data on a floppy disk that you wish to retrieve, see about getting help from someone you know who might have one on their computer system, or visit a public library (you might be able to offload the floppy disk contents and e-mail them to yourself).

Most people use USB flash drives now. They are far more reliable and have enormous capacity. Definitely get one if you don't have it. The W3503 computer has several USB ports on it.

Wont grip paper on feed, keeps 'saying' paperjam


I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.

Hewlett packerd 3310 won't paper feed. You can feed one paper at a time and use the end of a number a small pish stick to help feed it thru the paper tray!


Most likely either the pickup roller or the feed roller is worn, damaged, or excessively dirty.

You need to purchase a "paper feed cleaning kit" either from your regular HP store or from an HP online retailer. Then go here to get the step-by-step procedure. Instructions vary according to your operating system.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?rule=29302&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=439491

If this does not correct your feed problem, you need an HP certified technician to disassemble the printer and physically examine the parts. They may require replacement.
