Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Dell Laser MPF 1600n WON'T PRINT

I press print and the printer starts to go throught the motion of printing and sounds as if it is going to pick up the paper. But then it clicks and then states "Paper Jam 01 Open/Close Door"

I have two of these printers and both are doing the same thing. I have no idea what to do.

Two causes:

1. Worn out roller
<or>
2. Spring-loaded tray not engaging when placed into printer

1. The roller will try to "grab" the paper when the job starts. If it becomes too worn, it will slip and not grab anything. One fix is to apply a small amount of moisture to the u-shaped rubber roller.
Other option is to wrap a rubber band around it if you can.

2. Check to see if tray spring works properly. There is a small white knob on left side of tray. Push paper in tray down all the way until it clicks. Engage knob on side and paper should spring upwards. If this does not happen, the roller will not be able to engage the paper and it will simply click as it tries in vain.

My document will not print even after changing both the color and black ink?


Does the printer go through the motion of paper coming out when you press print. If it does and still no paper then the print heads may be the issue. Sometimes they do not come on the ink catridges. given how old the printer is proll better to replace it. If it doesnt go through the motion then its a software issue and need that fixed maybe by uninstalling and reinstalling.

Brother printer problem


Manual Feed Command.
1. Press the Job Cancel button to cancel the print job. Delete the print
job in the print queue on the computer. You can quickly access the print queue by double clicking the Printer icon in the task
tray or dock.

2. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.
Check that the front cover is closed.

3. Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button
until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

4. Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.

5. Press the GO button 8 times. The green Status LED will flash briefly
while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Status LED
will be lit green.

6. Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times. If
the Print Settings pages do not print and the Paper LED is on again skip
to the next section - No Paper in the Paper Cassette.

If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing
from your computer. The Paper Source of the Brother printer driver or
program you are printing from may be set to MP Tray or Manual, instead
of Auto Select, Tray 1, or Tray 2 (if the optional paper tray is
installed). To check the Paper Source setting of most programs, click
File and Page Setup or Page Layout. You may need to click the Paper
Source tab or Paper tab depending on your software application. Verify
that in the Paper Source section does not list MP Tray or Manual. Choose
Auto Select, or another relevant source such as Tray 1. Click OK. Try printing the document again.


No paper in the paper cassette.
1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

2. Insert the letter or legal size paper into the paper tray with the
top edge of the paper first and the print side down. Make sure that the
paper is flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. If using a
paper size other than letter or legal, the paper should be loaded in the
MP Tray. The MP Tray can print on paper from 2.75 in. by 4.57 in. up to8.5 in. by 16 in.

3. While pressing the blue paper-guide release lever, slide the paper
guides to fit the paper size. Make sure that the guides are firmly in
the slots. For legal size paper, press the lever located at the back of
the tray and pull out of the back of the open tray.

4. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer. Press the GO
button. If the alarm clears, no further troubleshooting is needed. If
the alarm continues, follow the steps below.


Paper Jam at Paper Pick-up.
1. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.

2. Remove the paper cassette from the printer.

3. Elevate the front of the printer slightly to locate the jammed
paper.

4. Gently remove the jammed paper.

5. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer.

6. Turn the printer power switch ON. If the alarm clears, no further
troubleshooting is needed.

Click File > Print > Properties to check your settings.
To verify that tray 1 is working, put paper in tray 1. Press green check until you see Information Menu. Scroll using arrows until you see Print Menu Map then press green check. If it prints from tray 1, your problem is not with the printer, but with the PC settings.

Ok,

I've went around and around with the same problem (bug) and finally found a solution. Here is the deal. You have to exactly match the settings for the MPF tray in the aplication softwares to the MPF tray settings set from front panel on the printer.

I found this problem when trying to print on gloss paper. The MPF tray had to be set for "Coated 1 Side 2" in both the application and on the front of the printer.

Lets say I'm printing a Word Document. Go to file, print, select the Dell printer, then select properties, select paper tray, set paper source to MPF, set MPF settings to ""Coated 1 Side 2". Click OK.

Now do the printer setup. From the front panel on the printer.
Press Menu, press the down button to Tray Settings
Press center button to select.
Display now asks for paper type. Press center button.
Displays MPF. Press center button.
Push down button until you see Coat1 Side2
Push center button to select.
Press Menu to exit.

I only print on gloss so I have to set the MPF tray to Coated 1 Side 2. I was told this slows the feed and that is needed for coated papers. Now you could probably use another setting as long you set both the MPF tray in both the application and the control panel to match exactly.

Epson c60 printer


Common problem with Epson Printers.
Either the print head is clogged, or the tube that goes from the pump to the printhead fell off.

Open the printer cover so that the ink cartridges are in open view and then UNPLUG THE PRINTER" so that the ink cartridges wont go back to home position. (If there is a change INK cartridge button, then press that then uplug the printer when the cartridge stops moving.)

You can try to clean the print head by folding up a couple paper towels, then saturate it with windex with amonia. Place it under the print head assembly and manually move the print head assembly over the paper towel back and forth to clean the bottom of the print head assembly. You should start seeing ink on the paper towel.

After cleaning, run the cleaning program that Epson has, and try it out.
If it still doesn't work, then you might have to repeat this a couple more times.
If it still doesn't work, then it might be time to get a new printer.
Hope this info helps.
Good luck.
