Paper needs to be "fanned" to remove static. But better still use a better grade of paper.

My lexmark x1270 keeps jamming not grabbing on the right side.


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.
6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.
7. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Paper jams after first sheet prints. Tried adding more paper and then taking paper out. Nothing is working. No other sheets are jammed in the printer.


Poor quality paper can cause feed problems as the edge may be poorly sheared causing the sheets to stick together and often leaves fibers on the rollers which reduces their grip. Always 'fan' paper when replenishing to loosen the sheets.
Also, printers with heavy usage will occasionally needs the rubber pickup rollers cleaned. Don't use alcohol since this can dry out the rubbers surface complicating the problem. I have used naphtha to remove the built up paper fibers successfully.

Fax always jams at the rear, as soon as it hits the rear door sensor it jams. Tried new main pcb and it still does it. I have 3 fax 2920's doing this now!!


This is a common problem on the fax-2920. It is caused by a build up of dust and dirt on the ejection roller that stops it from grabbing the paper as it is fed up towards it. To fix it you have to remove the fuser unit for access and wipe all four of the little rubber wheels over with alcohol. Put it all back together and it should be all good!

Canon R265 keeps grabbing 6 sheets for printing one sheet


Paper has different thicknesses called Mils. Make sure you are using the correct paper for your printer. Paper that is thinner than is intended for your printer may sometimes cause it to take multiplesheets.

PRINTER DID NOT TAKING PAPER AFTER PRINT OPTION AND PRINTER STOPS AFTER 2INCHES PAPER


hi
I guess its a coz of paper jam in your printer.
Heavy cardstock and certain types of slick or coated paper can cause frequent paper jams. To better isolate the cause of your problem (machine or paper), try a new **** of regular 20 lb copy or laser paper.

  • Don't Overload
    Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
  • Check the Paper
    Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
  • If you still get paper jams after this may be its time to clear the internal of the machine..You might want to have a look at the following link..

Paper Jams


Best paper is a about 20lb paper. Make sure you fan the paper to get air between the sheets so it doesn't try to pull multiple sheets at the same time.

Blow out with compressed air (available at office max walmart etc.

Make sure there are no small pieces of paper stuck anywhere in machine

Printer keeps jamming paper


without some information about the kind of printer and the weight/thickness of the paper, try to supply more information in a comment if you can, this is a generic answer.
many printers have a paper thickness adjustment that helps ensure that only one sheet is picked up at a time, and that the sheet feeds accurately,
if two or more sheets are picked up there are jams as multiple sheets do not feed well, and may not even get out of the paper tray. If the printer is set for a thicker paper, the lead edge of thinner sheets may miss its aimed path and wrap around guides or rollers, jamming.
The makers web page, or the user guide if you still have it, often have FAQ on paper jams,

RECURRING PAPER JAM - BROTHER MFC 5860 CN


I just bought the 5860 and have this issue right out of the gates. I discovered that the back lid causes the paper jam when using the bottom tray while examing with a flash light during a print job. I dislodged the back plate/lid (same lid you remove to pull paper jam out) out about 10mm and fastened the lid loosely to the back with a piece of tape on each side. The paper from the bottom tray does not slam against the back of the printer any more, thus more freedom of movement and no jams. Just successfully printed an 80 page document. You shouldn't have to do this with a new printer but I got it so cheap with all the rebates that I'm going to keep it and live with this fix. To sum up, the problem is a design flaw where the removable back plate is snapped in too tightly and contacts the bottom tray paper roller (& paper) during a print cycle. To fix you need to clear the path by pulling the back lid out slightly and taping each side with scotch tape to 'suspend'the back plate out about 10mm.a5999d3.jpg
