Re: Add paper

I posted the same problem in here on 31 January 2008 and have found a solution to my problem. In the Properties window of my SCX-4100 printer, under Paper tab, I found it was showing my paper source as "Manual Feed". This was an absolute mystery as I've never used the Manual Feed, so it has glitched to that setting of its own accord. The printer would not work in any programs so it must have set itself to "Manual Feed" as the default. Once I set it back to "AutoSelect", it works fine again.

(As an aside, I discovered the answer when I was trying to print a document in Word for the nth time, and kept getting the Add paper/No Paper message. In Word, I went into File=Print= and under the Properties button opposite my printer, under Paper tab, I saw the problem. And so ended my days of frustration.)

I wish everybody else luck, and hope my post will help someone.

Re: Add paper

Mine does the same thing. Very frusterating! Only fix is to turn off and back on.

Paper won't come out paper light blinks

I have a similar printer. Sometimes the bottom paper tray gets stuck or caught. Make sure the printer is on a flat surface.

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Pull the paper tray all the way out.
3. Take out all the paper and then place the tray back in.
4. Turn the machine on and let it try to print without paper.
5. When the light comes on add paper hit the button and you should be good to go.

Printer will not print, says that there is a paper jam but there is no paper in the print, and when we add paper the printer won't take it and the power light is blinking

you need to remove the black plastic on the back wipe the rollers that feed the paper put it back together plug it back in switch on and it should work some times u get a small corner of paper stuck so it tells the machine that u have a papaer jam

Did something???? How do I cancel printing? Unplugging, Info I've been given will not stop printing, even when I press Delete or Cancel. It just wants to keep printing...

there is worm virus that will make a printer print until it runs out of paper and if you add more paper it will keep printing till it runs out again i would take the paper out of the machine and run an antivirus scan on your computer usually the print is not legible with this virus

The problem is software rather than mechanical operation. Uninstall the printer driver from the Add/Remove section of the Control Panel. Pull out the USB port and replace it back. This will prompt you pc to install the driver of the newly found hardware. Reinstall the printer driver. Should your printer be observed to have the usual problem, replace both cartridges with a one. "Loading paper" problem feedback is the same prompt as what you get when cartridges are old or refilled with unauthentic ink.
