SOURCE: feeds paper crooked

Lexmark printers are hyper sensitive to dust..It might be causing this problem...Take a cotton swab dip it in alcohol and press it against the roller whilw pressing the paper feed button....
If this doesn't work you should try a longer procedure...Remember you have to look real hard..
It's possible that the paper may be running into a foreign object and not feeding in at all. A foreign object could also cause the paper to stall, or even feed-in crooked. Remove all the paper and use a flashlight to look carefully into the paper feed-in area. Look for a pen, pencil, push pin, paper clip, candy, etc. If you can't see anything, then actually pick your printer up and turn it so the paper opening is facing down and shake it a little, side to side. Your trying to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the paper entrance area. If nothing falls out, then turn it back over and use the flashlight to once again look inside that area. Sometimes you'll see an object that may have moved over into view while you were shaking the printer. Any foreign object might block the paper from actually being able to move forward, so then the printer thinks there is no paper installed. You may have to even remove the Top Cover to be able to get a better view of that paper feed area. Unfortunatly, just removing that cover is not always that easy, especially on the newer printers. You may need a Service Manual for reference, disassembly and troubleshooting. I have not checked, but you can normally find Service Manuals for most printers, at www.2manuals.com (most Service Manuals can usually be downloaded for around $10 +/- ). Even if there is not a foreign object stuck in that area, with the top cover off, you might just possibly see what the problem is and even be able to correct it..

SOURCE: paper wont feed propaly

Toss the canon. Mine last two have died like that... one after 1.5 years, this newest 4300Pix after only a few months. Starts to feed the paper crooked, seems like there is a jam, but never one, no paper jammed. Product control is terrible with most printers now.

SOURCE: Paper feed problem

Sound like something foreign is in paper path

SOURCE: Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE

I once had a similar problem a few months ago and I tried EVERYTHING I could do (Without shaking the printer, I was scared to do that) nothing worked, till I actually got up on a chair and looked into my printer (It is up on a rise above my computer) and there was a push pin sitting in the feeder opening! (Remove pushpin = then it was fine)

Then it started doing it AGAIN yesterday at a time when I really needed my printer, and this time there was no obvious pushpin or any obvious obstruction. I read all the stories here and thought *WOW they had things that far in there?!" So I tried harder and FINALLY after opening the back panel I saw with a flashlight there was a FROOTLOOP (I don't even HAVE any frootloops in my dorm! XD) jammed in the right side inside it! With a chopstick I was able to get it out and now it's fine again. OMG.

But yea, things like to get stuck in printers I guess. XD

My Star TSP600 Thermal Printer is displaying a flashing Error light. Power light on, new roll of paper loaded correctly, self-test was ineffective - nothing printed. What's my next step?


i know you stated you put the paper in correctlyin the printer but if the thermal reactive side of the paper is not facing the print head the thermal paper won't print on the wrong side of the paper. it will load into the printer and seem ok but the heat on the wrong side of the paper will not react and show any writing. Can you try turning the paper over in the printer feed holder so the other side of the paper faces the print head and give it another test .

How to load evelopes HL 2140


Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2
When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.


Open the back cover

Open the manual feed slot cover.

Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.

• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
• Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
• Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
• If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.

•2
Pull up on the paper sheet feeder on the top and back of the printer and slide out the paper support.
•3
Take a stack of no more than 10 pieces of photo paper and flatten the corners, if they are curled. Curled corners may cause jams within the printer.

Print your documents as needed.

•2
Pull on the cassette on the bottom of the printer to slide it out of the printer.

Place the stack of paper in the cassette so the paper is touching the right side and the printing side of the paper is facing down. Adjust the plastic paper guides so they touch the paper. The paper stack guides help facilitate the paper moving into the printer.
•5
Slide the cassette back into the bottom of the printer. The printer is ready for printing.

My new hp 2035n printer give an error when i try to print. the error says: load paper to tray 1


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Inkjet printer
  • Labels
  1. 1

    Prepare your printer. Make sure the power is on and the drivers are installed correctly on your computer.

  2. 2

    Wait for printer to stop. Make sure your printer is idle or ready or waiting for paper to be loaded. Don't load labels when your printer is already printing or running an operation.

  3. 3

    Prepare your labels. Make sure they are all facing the same way and are right side up. The label side should be face up. Many labels have an up and a down as well, look for a "this side up" or "load this way" indicator. Or take a look at the print preview before you print and make sure your labels will be fed correctly.

  4. 4

    Find the correct paper tray. Some printers have manual feeds and automatic feeds. Refer to your manual to find out which one you should use for labels. If you are going to use the manual feed, follow the manual's instructions. However, most printers will use the automatic feed, so read on.

  5. 5

    Align the paper guide. This is a moveable piece on the paper tray. There should be markers for the width of your paper. Standard pages are 8.5 inches. Move the marker so your labels will fit.

  6. 6

    Load your labels. Place your labels in the tray so it touches the immoveable side of the paper guide. Slide the paper guide over to touch the other side if it is not already close. Do not bend the labels by pushing in too far.

  7. 7

    Find the paper thickness lever. Try looking under the door that lets you change the cartridges. Or search around on the back or side. Check your manual, too.

  8. 8

    Set your paper thickness level. Usually you'll use the standard size. However, your printer may need to use a thicker setting. Check your manual.

  9. 9

    Change your media type. In your printer settings, find the media type option. You can access settings by clicking properties or settings on the print dialog right before you print. Select "labels."

How do I use manual feed on the brother mfc 7820N printer/fax/copier?


The manual feed slot located in the front of the machine above the paper tray.
  1. Slide the gray paper guides to fit the size of the paper
  2. Using both hands put the paper (side to be printed, face up) 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 Brother machine feed the paper in a short distance.
  3. You must then go to the application that you want to print to the paper and use that application's paper settings to set the paper size, orientation, font, style, etc
  4. Good luck trying...

Printing 5x7 card stock in HP 1510 injet all-in-one printer


You need to set up your printer preferences to accommodate the type and size of paper you wish to use, usually listed under printer/print or page set up.

Invariably, paper is loaded, butted to either left or right of the paper feed, but on the other side of the feed there should be a sliding stop which keeps your paper in place.

If feeding from the top feed, print side towards you, if printing from a tray at the bottom of the printer, print face down.

You can download a user manual from here once you've chosen your model printer:-

Hp l7590b no paper load


hi friend,
Step 1Turn on your printer. Make sure it is plugged into an electrical outlet and installed properly.
  • Step 2Wait for your printer to stop. Do not load paper while it is printing or running any kind of maintenance operation.
  • Step 3Prepare your paper. Make sure your paper is right side up (glossy, whiter or label side should be facing up). Make sure all the pages are lined up together, like a deck of cards.
  • Step 4Locate your paper tray. Some printers have a manual tray and an automatic feed tray. Refer to your printer’s documentation to find the automatic feed paper tray.
  • Step 5Place your paper in the tray. For 8.5 by 11 inch (standard) paper make sure the 8.5 inch side will be fed into the printer.
  • Step 6Set the paper guide. This is the movable piece on the side of your paper tray. One side should move and the other should not. Move your paper so it touches the side that does not move, and slide the paper guide so it touches the other side. Some paper guides have markings so you can set it to the exact measurements if you know the size of your paper.
  • Step 7Set the paper thickness lever. Refer to your manual to determine which setting this lever should be at. Generally, standard paper does not need a different setting and special media like glossy photo paper or envelopes should use a thicker setting. You can usually access this lever the same way you access your ink cartridges.
  • Step 8Let your printer know what it is printing. If you are using a special media, then set the options before you print. Click “Properties” on the print dialog before you print something. From there, change your media type to whatever kind of paper you loaded.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Fan your paper back and forth before lining it up to load into your printer. This prevents static build up which is the leading cause of paper jams.
    • If your printer doesn’t feed the paper correctly at first, try making slight adjustments as it tries to feed to find the right spot.
    • Refer to your manual for in-depth paper loading instructions.
    • Many printers have a resume/cancel button. This is to be used when you need to load paper mid-print job.
    • Do not overload your printer.
    • Avoid non-standard media types such as loose leaf paper with holes or folded or wrinkled paper or anything with affixed stamps or stickers. These can jam your printer.
