SOURCE: Feed problem

You need to install a paper jam kit. These models are notorious for having feed problems due to the paper stack standing up. I get my parts from a company called "Parts Now!" and you can get this kit from them. The part number is KIT-FEED-1100-PNO. It requires some disassembly of the printer. HP used to provide a free "defect kit" which was very simple to install, but I cannot find a reference to it anymore. Hope this helps!

    Minimizing Paper Jamming in any printer

    When using any laser printer, monochrome or color machine, be sure to fan the paper before inserting into the paper cassette tray. The technique is simple. Holding a stack of paper in your hands, each hand on the short edge, flex the paper to create an arc in the stack. Then pinch down on the ends of the paper and straighten the arc out. You'll produce a bulge in the middle of the stack which creates an air space between every sheet in the stack. Now the paper will not cling and paper jams will not occur.
    The 2nd tip is to note which "direction" the paper is cut because feeding the paper in one side first may provide better traction than if you were to feed the other end in first. Paper has a grain and its lays down in one or the other direction.

    Lexmark t614 manual feed how it works

    1. Push the lower release latch. The multipurpose feeder door drops open.
    2. Pull out the metal bar in the recessed area on the multipurpose feeder, far enough to accommodate the paper you will be using.
    3. Slide the paper width guide to the far right.
    4. Prepare the print material for loading:

        • Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
        • Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.
        • Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent jams.
        • Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the transparencies.

    5. Use the stack height limiter as a guide for stack height when loading print materials.
    6. Load one type of print material in the multipurpose feeder. Do not mix types.
    7. Slide the paper width guide over until it fits snugly against the side of the print material.

    Paper feed problem

    Just open up the printer lid, don't be afraid, you won't break anything. Usually inkjet printers have a panel on the back aswell which you can open by twisting a big knob. It's there especially for unjamming paper. Also, make sure the paper in the tray is arranged in a neat stack and the things that keep the paper in place are tightly placed against the paper.

    Printer screen says NO PAPER FEED...when there is paper in the tray.

    'No paper feed' is different from 'No Paper' : it basically means that the printer cannot 'grab' a sheet of paper to feed it!

    Just remove and loosen the stack of paper from the tray and reinsert the stack making sure that the sides are not jammed hard against the guides.

    ps. For good measure, also check for any remains of previously jammed/torned print outs.

    Hope it helps!

    many printers have a rubber or cork pad under the feed wheels to hold back all the sheets, except the top one. This one doesn't have that, so we'll try a couple other things.

    Pull the tray out and remove all the paper. If you're reusing old paper, that might be your problem. Assuming you have fresh, clean paper, take the whole stack, pinching it at one end, and bow the stack up in the middle. Now pinch the other end of the stack, relax the grip on the end you pinched before, and bend the stack the other way. Repeat.

    With every bend, the stack gets more slanted. Now hold one end of the stack and fan the other end to get air between all the sheets. Fan the other end the same way. The tiny layer of air you're creating between pages goes a long way in lubricating them, so they feed separately.

    Straighten the stack and put it back in the cassette. The blue "fences" at the sides should be touching both sides of the stack to provide a little friction and keep the feed straight. The back fence should hold the stack against the opposite end of the tray. (Your tray is slanted at the feed end. On models where that wall is vertical, you should have a 1 to 2 mm gap so the paper doesn't bind when it tries to lift.)

    Reinsert the tray and try it out.

    When i give print command the paper was jammed in printer.

    The following sections describe how to load media into the different input trays. CAUTION: If you try to print on media that is wrinkled, folded, or damaged in any way, a jam might occur. Priority feed slot The priority feed slot holds one sheet of media up to 163 g/m2 (43 lb) or one envelope, transparency, or cardstock. Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed facing up. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side media guides before feeding the media. Back to top 150-sheet main input tray The input tray holds up to 150 pages of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper or fewer pages of heavier media of 25 mm (0.9 inches) or less stack height. Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed facing up. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and front media guides. NOTE: When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps prevent multiple sheets of media from feeding through the printer at one time, reducing media jams.

    Problems with bypass tray taking too many peice of paper then jamming

    The tray is overfilled > Remove excess media from the tray.

    The paper exceeds the maximum stack-height indicator mark in the tray (trays 2 or 3) > Open the tray and verify that the media stack is below the maximum stack-height mark.

    The paper is sticking together > Remove the media, flex it, rotate it 180 degrees, or flip it over, and then reload it into the tray.
    NOTE: Do not fan paper. Fanning can create static
    electricity, which can cause paper to stick together.
