hi,

the issue that you have might need to change some settings from the printing properties. WHen you hit on PRINT, a box will open, right? look on the top right of that box, you will see "PROPERTIES" or "Preferences" just click on it, then another box will open. Click on Printing Shortcuts tab, try to review the settings. And if you want to print using the main tray, it should set it to Automatic select or Main tray. And make sure that it sets to General Printing. But if youre going to print a photo, you will have options there to choose what type of paper when you click on that, the settings on the paper size, paper source, etc. will change also. For paper source, make sure that it sets to Photo Tray.

If you will be able to open printing preferences, all options are there, you just need to read and choose which settings you want to use.

Thank you so much.

Try changing completely or at least first cleaning the glassy surface of the toner cartridge first. You can do it with a cotton swab by sweeping the black toner from the surface while manually turning the gear on the side of the cartridge.

Your problem is more than likely that the sensor lever is not properly positioned. You may also have dislodged the shaft from the drive gears (gears on right out side of carriage). Both are easy to do.

Here's a couple pictures of the exact positioning of the paper sensor positioning. It should freely flip up and fall back down with gravity. Remove the tray and check the flag that hangs down.

Just in case you have dislodged the shaft from the geartrain, here's a free copy of the HP Service manual for the printer that will walk you through disassembling the right side for re-mounting the shaft and holder clip for the shaft.

Hope that helps you. :)

If this resolves the issue, hit me with a Fixya! If not ask me further and I'll try and help you some more.

SOURCE: HP PSC 1350 printer won't feed paper

Check the gear on the left side of your printer where the disk encoder strip is attach,the gear is not holding the metal shaft your need to replace that gear. The problem is in the inner hole where the shafting is attached.

Help my hp envy 5530 printer is printing a4 pictures at funny angles. It is fine with plain paper it is just with the a4 photo paper.


Photo paper is heavier gauge and this may be showing a problem with the transport or pickup rollers and these may need cleaning.

My Canon 6512 photo copier machine does not take the paper beyond the pickup/Feeding assembly/ it stacks around the developing assembly (OPC Drum)


Dear
the paper first picked up from tray and feed up upto registration sensor and stops for a while, then image formation starts, paper flows to heating assy..
You have not mentioned any error code and jammed area detail. also check the life of the feeder assy. and pickup roller.
Before doing activities do clear all error in the machine list.
Thanks.

Typically the paper pickup rollers need to be cleaned or replaced.
Pickup mechanism may be damaged as well.
If you attempt to clean use 100% isopropyl alcohol with caution.

Printer will not grab paper


Make sure the pickup roller is turning, if it is spinning and does not pull paper, it is worn and needs replacing. You can make cuts parallel to the axis of the roller toturn it to pull paper.

Hi

This looks to be a problem with the paper pickup roller. Hence use a little thin Photo paper or replace the Pickup roller and also the Paper feed toller (Long black roller )

make sure you use the correct paper size for the printers specification :

Media Type Matte photo paper , Banners , Glossy photo paper , High-gloss photo film , Iron-on transfers , Plain paper , Glossy photo cards , Transparencies , Envelopes
  • Max Media Size (Custom) 8.5 x 14.0
  • Media Sizes Letter A Size (8.5 in x 11 in) , U.S. #10 envelopes , European DL , Legal (8.5 in x 14 in) , A6 (4.13 in x 5.83 in)
  • Envelope Sizes US No 10 (4.1 in x 9.5 in)

  • Total Media Capacity 150.0 sheets
  • Media Feeder(s) 1.0 x Autoload - 150.0 sheets - Legal (8.5 in x 14 in)

  • if you are then you might want to try cleaning the printer pickup rollers with a lynt free cloth and a bit of alcohol if that does not solve the issue then you machine is fualty and if your still under warrenty I suggest you replace it

    Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper


    Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

    It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

    For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
    Hope this is of help.
