Re: paper feed

Make sure what you are trying to print fits on 1 page. Check your margins, headers, etc.

I have an HP PSC 1510. I got a new computer with vista and it no longer does 2 sided printing. It used to have a pop up that caused the printing to pause allowing me to flip the paper and would print the...

Wow! I have this same printer and I didn't even know it could do that. I don't know what's wrong with the machine, but to make 2-sided copies you can still just flip the paper, as long as you take the stack of blank paper out of the feed so it doesn't print your second side on a clean sheet.

When I print on my Canon MP730, it always prints out a blank page after every print job. How can I fix this?

SOLUTION(S): Reset the Sheet Feeder Gears
If the power fails while the paper is feeding or during a print job, the paper feed gears will lose their proper
alignment. The reason is that after the power is restored the paper feed gears will attempt to return to the
home position, which may not be possible if the paper stop cam is not in the correct position.
1. Remove the sheet feeder from the unit.
2. Remove the sheet feeder motor from the sheet feeder assembly.
3. Remove the drive gear from its spindle.
4. Realign the lifting tray gear and paper stop cam gear.
5. Reinstall the drive gear and sheet feeder motor.
6. Reattach the sheet feeder to the print unit.
7. Reassemble the unit.

Will not Print

Try a hardware check of the printer first. To check the hardware of the printer, do the following:
  1. Switch off the printer.
  2. Load one sheet of paper into the paper feeder.
  3. Press the Power button and the Paper Feed button at the same time and hold them both down for three seconds. Then release the Power button only.
  4. When the printer begins to print, release the Paper Feed button. A page will be printed. The page should contain some text at the top and a series of horizontal color lines (cyan, magenta and yellow) below the text, with a thick black line below the colored lines. All the lines should be solid.
  5. When the test is complete, switch off the printer. NOTE: If you do not switch off the printer, it will continue to print.

Slide the paper guides to fit the paper

Using both hands put the one sheet of
paper in the manual feed slot until you
feel the front edge of the paper touch the
paper feed roller.

Let go of the paper
when you feel the machine feed the
paper in a short distance.

Won't feed paper while printing

I just obtained a printer with the same problem. When I opened it up I discovered a plastic gear that had cracked and was not turning the main paper roller as it was slipping. It looks like the solution is to replace the roller if you can find one or to repair the gear and epoxy back onto the roller. I am trying the later.

Paper jam light is on

Hi! I have the same issue. The only solution I still use: select print from document with no paper in the hp's feeder. Let the printer go on "paper out" message, now put the paper into the feeder and press the print button on the printer. Success!
