Ask 4000 gives an error saying paper is not loaded

Fuji Ask 4000 gives an error saying paper is not loaded when there is a full roll of paper in. The only solution is to put in a different roll, which will clear the error. Is this a sensor issue or batch code errors on the paper?

Message saying out of paper, however it has a full roll

The only plotter I have any experience with has a "Load/Eject" button. This button must be pressed once before attempting to load the end of the roll into the machine, otherwise the machine will not attempt to pick up the roll. If your machine has any similar functionality, it may just be that simple. Push button, load end of paper roll into pick-up slot.

As for the driver, you'll have to select you operating system from the list here:

After downloading and installing the appropriate driver for your operating system, if it still doesn't work, be sure to record any error messages you get. Sometimes, the error messages can help point to a solution when searched for on the internet. Without specifics, I can't recommend anything.

Sometimes, it happens that a specific system has had many different printers installed and uninstalled over the years, and some drivers can cause the print spooler in an operating system to malfunction. If you can, try reinstalling your operating system, and then installing the print driver. Remember to back up any important files, pictures, and documents before you reinstall. Usually a reinstall will format your hard drive, and all that information would be deleted by default.

While tryiny to print an error message says that I am using the wrong paper

I am guess you having Windows XP. I do not have this printer but it sounds like the paper selection is what windows is telling it to select. on your computer go to Start/ control panel / Printers / printer and fax. right mouse click on your Printpix printer icon and select properties.  under general click on Printing Preferences/ here where it could get a little different. you may have basic or advance chooses. and under one of these you should see paper type. select your correct paper such as roll paper or it may have a paper number. if you need more help reply here with where you are on this step

Canon ipf605 paper error

Here is what I've found out by trial and error.
Paper Roll Won't Load:
    -Usually occurs when the roll is less than 50% full
    -Printer will give the error "paper loaded askew"
    To Correct This:
      - Press and hold Stop until Job Cancel comes up on the
      - Press Menu
      o Scroll Down until Adjust Printer menu comes up
      o Press right side arrow next to OK button
      o Scroll down to Manual Band Adjust and press right side
      arrow again (or select one of the other adjustments)
      - Select Yes and press OK
      - Load paper roll - make sure paper is straight
      - When asked (printer will beep) select Plain Paper and
      press OK
      - Let paper load
      - When printer starts to print press and hold Stop to cancel
      - Paper should now be loaded
      When all else fails load a new roll.
      This would be a temporary solution until the sensor is fixed.

Reload Paper constantly shows up

This printer is very finicky about paper loading. I see this error most commonly when using auto-cut roll paper. If the paper edge is not cut perfectly straight, and it is not inserted into the printer perfectly strait, it will give you an error. When it does this, you can simply load the paper and press "cut" instead of "pause" when it says "press pause" and it will cut the paper straight. You can also set it to "Roll Paper Manual Cut" and load the paper, then set it back to "Roll Paper Auto Cut."

Error message

Make sure you have put the printer roll core in ! Don't lose that core cause you must have it for the printer to see the paper.

I have the canon w8400 and when i try to print it comes up error E0200D Size undetected. Pleas explain i have the same problem! it says ERROR EO2OOD. WTF?

Could be that the button for Sheet / Roll has been pressed. This is a popular error caused by the machine expecting a sheet when you are loading a roll. Make sure the light is located on the roll option rather than the sheet.

If this is the problem, you must first remove all media, then lower the covers and lower the media release lever before the printer will allow you to change between roll & sheet.
