Re: printer saying 'no paper' when there is paper

Feed manually. Also, go into the printer properties settings in Windows and check that the default is for letter-sized paper. Sometimes my setting has somehow gotten changed to "A4" paper size, which the printer wants to be manually fed. Don't know why this gets changed in the properties area, but it does, so check it.

Big black vertical line on the back of the paper. Have cleaned the nozzle several times as directed by online instructions, but still ink line tehre, you say clean the nozzle with a stick, but you dont say...

Any ink on back of paper is a stain and not a print. So open the cover and look carefully and well into the printer, the path of the paper, and you will most likely see ink stain about the area where the stain occurs and wipe thoroughly with tissue a soft cloth.

Good luck 7 God bless!

We had problems to print legal and after 30 minutes of trying it finally printed legal. Now we cant go back to letter size so every document prints on legal paper. Can I get clear instruction on how we can...

When you say printing? Do you mean from the computer or are you making copies. If you are printing from the computer you need to change the paper size that you are printing to under the printers properties or the out put tray. If you are making copies just hit the reset button or just manually select another paper tray on the display pannel. Or if you have change a paper tray to leagal size change it back to LTR and make sure the paper is installed the correct direction.

NO paper light

Something worth considering: Check that there is enough slack in the paper tray to allow the gears at the front to lift the paper to the pickup wheel. I've found that on my firm's 8860DN, the paper tray being set too "tight" can cause too much friction, preventing it from moving. If you can raise/lower it by hand (using the gears on the side of the tray), you should be fine.

Not printing

If the paper actually comes out, then tehre is a communication happening between the computer and the printer.
