    my printer does not take in any papaer?

  • Anonymous May 10, 2008

    I have tried the HP link (

    ) solution, but still I get the same "Check Paper" error when I try to print.

    The paper feeder is not working or not picking paper from the tray.

    Has anyone tried to repair HP PSC 1200 or similar printer paper feed problems and any hints ?

Unfortunately this printer and alot of others like it have a very poor paper feed mechanism. I am finding that the (1) small pickup roller that is used in this and other machines like it is failing (not picking paper) prematurely or faster than i think it should (this is looking at page counts on some of these machines). We have been disassembling them and rubber restoring the pickup roller which fixes the paper jam/paper out errors.

Why does it say no paper? The tray is full. I'm working from an iPad air2.

most likely it is not picking paper, not that it doesn't have paper.
look down into the printer from the front where your paper goes and watch it when it tries to pick up a piece of paper. if the rollers are dirty with dust or such they aren't as tacky as they should be and aren't getting ahold of the paper. get a dab of dish soap on your fingertip and get it on the pick up roller and scrape at it with your fingernail. you will see the dirt coming off of it. wipe it off with a damp cloth and let it dry. it should be stickier than it was and be able to grab paper now.

I'm getting an error code Illegal attribute value on my hp 4050 printer

Nothing to worry about. It just means that you have printed a page or pages that all the trays do not have the correct paper size. Say your trays all have A4 papers and you printed a PDF document (US letter size) downloaded from America. Printer prints the page, then print another page with your error message just to tell you your pages do not match the papers. This is HP PCL6 code. A Postscript printer driver will just refuse to print if page size mismatches and keep the user wondering why.

To avoid the message, just make sure that your documents have the same page settings as papers in your printer trays.

Why does my 2040 Paper light (Red) keep flashing even though the paper tray is full and there is no paper jam?


There are several possibilities with too many to type here so, here is a link to the Brother troubleshooting page that gives several causes for the flashing red light. When you get to the page, scroll down until you see the "lashing "paper" light.

Hope this helps.

Brother HC4040CN displays error message NO PAPER even though paper tray is full. Will not feed paper from Main tray.

The paper sensor flag above the paper tray on the printer chassis is either stuck or has broken of. You need to take the printer for repairs.

Check paper tray - reload paper

Your paper sensor actuator arm is most likely broken or out of position, or you may have a dirty sensor if you are in a dusty environment. If you look in the machine with the tray out, you should see a small (usually black) piece of plastic hanging down. You can also take the toner and drum cartridge out and turn it on its back to get a better look. If it's not there, it's probably broken off.

Not noticing paper

I took an envelope, folded in the end to triple its thickness and placed it in the middle of the paper tray underneath the very last page. This pushed the center of the paper up more and it had no problem detecting or getting hold of the paper. Have to be sure the paper supply tray is full though. When it gets to the last five or seven pages it has difficulty again. It's a nontechnical fix, but it seems to work.
