Paper always packs up in the blades and it will not cut more than 1 sheet at a time. Sometimes not even that. Any solutions for this? I constantly have to dig the paper out of the blades, even after...


All x-cut shredders should be oiled. Buy some shredder oil ( this is a lightweight oil ) from your local store then pour some of the oil across the cutting blades where you insert the paper. After putting the oil in run the machine in reverse...this will help get the oil all thro the cutting mechanism. Then start shredding 1, then 2, then 3 etc, etc sheets at a time...when you hear the motor starting to "labour" to take the sheets thro'..then you have just about reached the point where "thats its maximum". You should occassionaly shred a sheet of paper with a bead of oil on it ( in an "S" pattern) to help keep the mechanism lubricated. Running the machine at about no more than 75% of its maximum capacity and regular oiling will prolong the machines life.

Error code 3528 keeps coming up,telling me to remove back cover and remove paper jam then replace back cover.there is no paper jam,checked printer heads no paper anywhere?


I have this printed and if you read (carefully) through the manual it tells you it doesn't like single sheets of paper. If ever my paper feeder tray runs below say 3 sheets then this error will crop up so keep it topped up with paper. The same goes for photo paper too.

Single sheet paper on my HP LJet 1100a works fine


There is a recall fix on this printer if it has specific feed problems like pulling in multiple sheets etc. Might be related. You can contact HP and they'll send you a DIY fix kit to replace the rubber that pulls the sheet in and onto the rollers.

Paper jamed


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Perform the steps below in order to solve this incidence:
  1. Disconnect the power cord or power supply adaptor from the rear of the HP All-in-One product.
  2. Remove the paper pack remaining in the input tray.
WARNING - Do not try to remove the jammed paper sheet yet. Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the device can damage the print mechanism. Always clear paper jams through the rear access door.
  1. Open the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  2. Gently pull the jammed paper sheet out of the rollers.
  3. If the paper tore when it was being removed from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the device. If not all the pieces of paper are removed from the device, paper jams are likely to occur again later.
  4. Replace the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
  5. Restart the printer to continue the current job.

Cannot restore the settings of printer like the tear of on the keybord... what did do to restore the settings of this printer... i cannot print  the print out is a symbol . same on the printest on the...


Hi,

To do a Default Setting Mode to an Epson LX300+, you need to:
1. Power OFF the printer (for at least 10 seconds or more);
2. Press Tear Off button while simultaneously powering ON;
3. Release button, maintain power ON, printer will print basic/default settings.

At most times, it is the parallel/printer cable that gets dislodged. loosely connected or perhaps would even require replacement.

Should you want to do a printer self-test on an Epson LX300+:
Printer's Self-Test - The built-in self test function demonstrates that the printer is working properly. You can run the test with either continuous paper or single sheets; this describes the easier way, with single sheets.

* Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
* While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
* Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
* Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
* Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
* To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
* To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Paper jam light constantly on.


After hours of trying to clean the machine, repeatedly pressing the OK and other buttons, banging the machine and deleting the driver, I finely got the light to go off. What worked was turning the machine off then turning it back on with paper in the hopper. It fed one sheet of paper and the light went off. Hope this helps someone.
