One of the tracks is off, or something inside the printer is bent / loose. you will either have to buy a new printer, send it back to the manufacturer, or find a local PC repair shop that will actually work on printers. your cheapest option is to buy a new printer.

Says there is a paper jam everytime i try to print


Hello

Check within your paper feeder rollers there might be something stuck inside it like paper clips, coins or anything small and solid. If you can find way to open the printer without braking it, that would be nice.

Hope this helps.

Paper jam(Canon BJC 3000)


Try to open the printer cover and look for tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. Also if your printer has a sensor, there could also be a tiny piece of paper blocking it, thus sensing a paper jam.

I have a lexmark x2550 printer. I was trying to print a document but the paper became jammed so I removed it. I threw away the jammed paper and tried to print the document again loads of times. Everytime i...


If its not taking the paper, it may be that the paper you are using is not the right type. Some papers are too smooth or shiny to allow the guide wheels and platten ( roller) to grip the paper. This oftemn results in no paper or only one side of the paper being caught and then it jams.

Wipe the platten with alcohol, as welol as thye guide wheels if you can see them. Ink tends to stick on them and the platten and becomes shiny ans so paper will slip. Also try a heavier grade paper to see if that rectifies the problem

Everytime I tried to print the paper get jam


Make sure all surfaces are clean and your paper has static electricity removed. you can do this by fanning it over a grounded surface. Check the paper feed rollers to be sure they are clean and have no sticky areas. Be sure no to put too many pages in at a time. Try one page at at time first to test and see if all goes well then proceed to try several sheets, about 10 or 12.

Epson RX500, Paper Jam - printing couldn't start


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button, applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

Paper Jam


try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Everytime I try to print to my PIXMA 9000 I get an error from the print spooler that the printer is not responding. THe print job starts to print, stalls after a few lines.


1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

OR=

1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be looking for paper in another tray.
2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.
