Check paper feed machism.Ensure that the feed roller is rotating when you command print.See also that there is no obstraction in the paper path.Sometimes there could be a foreign pacticle.Also try to clean feed roller so that there is friction between paper and roller.

Jam in duplex area


Its is trick..If its more then two pages print, printer grabs second page even first page in duplex unit., here its confusion. Check with simplex single print, see any paper mismatch error? or printer throwing paper in output bin after successful print?. No.. check fuser out sensor or paper out roller.
Print only two pages matter in duplex, check where paper struck? if paper our roller not grabbing paper back properly in time (slipping while grabbing back) gets jam error.
Always ensure that select proper paper size in printer.Other than this it may major issue, need technical knowledge..& possibilities are less to judge the exact problem..
Keep update us to resolve the issue.

My printer attemps to grab the paper but does not for either copies or from a computer command


The paper feed roller(s) are probably dirty.If you can reach the the roller that pulls in the paper try to clean it with alcohol or kitchen type cleaner if you do not have alcohol make shure it is fully dry before trying to print.You can also wet one sheet of paper with alcohol where the roller will grab it and tell it to print while firmly holding back the paper as you do not want wet paper to feed into machine repeat if needed

Hi- The paper from the tray won't grab and run


if you remove paper tray you will see rubber feed rollers that pickup the paper, sometimes when they really dirty they wont feed the paper, you can try cleaning them with some windex or alcohol but do no try to rotate them as there is a clutch and it can break, after gently cleaning the rollers wait a few minutes to dry, and try printing again... if still having a problem it may be either the rollers are worn or some other mechanical problem.

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers
haitchhcee
p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

Paper jams constantly, without fail.


Hello, this problem may be able to be fixed. You have started out correctly by looking inside for something out of place and cleaning the rubber rollers that "grip" the paper. Next thing would be to get a higher quality of paper (heavier weight) and see if that fixes the problem. Often times a slightly heavier stock paper will work. Some of the cheapest papers are more slipery and thin. This may not be the solution you are looking for, becuase you have to use more expensive paper, but I have found that on an older inkjet printer it will allow you to print. If this does solve your problem, then you know that its a paper grip problem and you can go in and take some course sandpaper to your rubber wheels to make them grab the paper better. If this doesn't work get a flashlight and look into the paper feed when it is trying to grab the paper to make sure the intake roller is turning correctly and try to manually feed it through there by pushing the top sheet through if possible. It has to be one thing or another and you just have to go through the process of elimination to see what is going wrong with the mechanical process of grabbing the paper and getting it to go through. Most printers have a manual load area where you can feed paper through. If you have that, you can verify that the paper feed channel is unblocked. Often a tiny piece of paper is lodged somewhere that stops a new sheet from making its way through.

Hi, i have a lexmark x4550. The pick up roller (the roller that grabs the paper and feeds it into the printer to get printed on), is not working, at least one of them isnt (there are two i think,,, but on...


Try the following: take an A4 sheet of paper and glue a 2 - inch strip of sanding paper onto the top of the sheet (full width of the page). sanding paper should be about 120 grain.
Now feed the page with the sand paper first (rough surface on top) into the paper inlet. grab and hold the paper, then press paper feed or send a print job. The printer tries to feed you special sheet, but you won't let go. This will sand off the gunk from you feed rollers and give a bit of rough surface to the rubber. Repeat if needed, it should cure the problem.
This works if the problem is the roller surface, it will not fix a problem with misalignment or a missing/broken spring in the feed roller mechanism.
regards, the perfessa

Printer does not "grab" paper but can see parts turning


you have bad rollers. you can try to clean the roller with an alchohol wipe but I doubt it will help much. You need to have the roller replaced or get a new printer

Paper pulls to the right, jams, won't print, tried different paper still won't print


Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

When paper feeds it twists and unable to print


How old is your printer? What tends to happen with most rollers is that the rollers that grab the paper, lose their stickiness after much use. These rollers tend to get kind of smooth. What you need to do is grab an eraser, the kind we used to use in school and try and erase all around the roller until it feels "rougher." This will aid in helping to feed the paper without any problems. Good luck.
