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...

PAPER JAM


When the paper goes it on the inside of the printer grabs both side which what feeds it through, if it is not tight enough will cause paper jams, open it back up and check the roller to see if it can be adjusted if it cant then you will need to buy a new one, this usualy happens when it has had too many paper jams forcing the gap to increase in size and not allow the collection of one but many, on single sheets of paper the gap wont be small enough to collect 1 sheet anymore.

Printed out a inkjet magnet sheet now won't anything else! Help!


OK Christina, did the whole magnet page come out without any missing tear outs or pieces? You probably have a stuck piece of sticky paper in your feed or rollers. Look in your manual for clearing paper jams and examine your rollers while your at it from stray pieces of paper.

Epson stylus C43UX. my printer keeps saying paper jam and paper not loaded correctly and just spills out the paper i load. the paper is loaded perfectly but it just wont print! the stupid red light just...


The printer reports a paper jam because the paper feed system cannot feed paper.

Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. This is presumably not happening! Can you what does happen?

If the expected movements are not happening, you need to remove the printer top cover to see what the problem is and resolve it - perhaps the ASF has come loose or something. This is easy if you know how to do it - otherwise it's likely to cause you to take a large hammer to the task! If you need help on this, please report back with a new post.

I have hp photosmart 7850. I was printing envelop and there was paper jam. I pulled out the stock and jammed envelop and ever since the printer would not load paper to prinit and keeps flashing for error....


I have had this happen to several people and also to me. What I did is to take a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy Paper) and put it through the feed putting pressure on the Card Stock and pressing on the feed button. What happens is that a piece of the jammed envlope or document gets caught in the feed way and will not allow the document or envelope ( in your case) to pass. It should solve your problem if it works. Bud

Check there is not a paper jam and check the ink cartridges take them out and clean them gently with soft cloth. If that does'nt work unplug it wait a minute and plug back in.
Hope that helps. Thanks

HP paper jam


That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.
