PAPER FEEDER NOT WORKING OR THE WAY OF FEEDING IS WRONG


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper.The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

Lexmark X5490 paper will not feed rollers seem to slip. will work if you help the paper into the printer.


Sounds like the feed rollers are dirty. Use a mild detergent or soapy water and a clean cloth and clean the rubber rollers that turn to feed in the paper.
Do not use alcohol this could dry out and shorten the life of the rollers.

Paper doesn't feed from inside on XD 100 work center (10 years old, lightly used). Despite a full paper drawer, I get the "out of paper" error message.  I can copy by feeding through the back.


On this machine, the feed rollers might be worn down.
Not seeing the machine and by the description. there can also be other possible problem areas, deep in the machine itself.
Does the paper feed partially out?
If it does not, are there paper black scuff marks where the rollers were trying to feed the paper.
Can you hear the solenoids feed the paper?
If the paper does feed and seems crooked, it is possible the paper tray springs need to be stretched out just a little to push the paper tray plate more on the feed rollers.
Make sure the tray is completely up in the latched position so the feed wheels will touch the paper stack itself.
If you have a two paper tray, make sure you tell the machine what size paper you have for each tray.
Run paper in each tray.
Good luck.

My canon printer/copier does not feed paper in machine. makes all the sound but wont feed. help


1. Try cleaning the paper feed rollers

Instructions how to clean the paper feed rollers.
If the paper feed rollers become dirty, they may not be able to properly feed paper due to the feed roller's slippage.
If paper does not feed correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:
  1. Open the Printers folder.

    - For Windows XP Home Edition : Click/Select 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.

    - For Windows XP Professional Edition : Click 'Start' and 'Printers and Faxes.'

    - For Windows Vista : Click 'Start,' 'Control Panel,' 'Hardware and Sound,' and 'Printers.'

    - For Windows 2000 : Click/Select 'Start,' and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
  2. Right-click the icon of the printer for paper feed roller cleaning, and select 'Properties' from the displayed list.
  3. Click the 'Maintenance' tab and click 'Roller Cleaning'.

    Remove all sheets of paper from the rear tray, then click 'OK'.
  4. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.
    Note: Clicking 'OK' will activate the paper feed rollers 30 times. This activation will take about 90 seconds. Do not perform other operations until this operation has finished.
  5. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.

    After the continuous paper feeding operations in step 5 have finished, load three sheets of plain paper and click 'OK'.


  6. Confirm the message, and click 'OK'.

    Note: “Feed roller cleaning is completed” message is displayed when the paper is fed and ejected.

    Click 'OK'.
Roller Cleaning is completed.

Hp deskjet 6122 paper feed


Try putting Isopropyl alcohol on the feed rollers. These rollers become hard and smooth with time and cause all sorts of paper feed problems. You can find isopropyl alcohol at any drug store(it is rubbing alcohol).

Paper jams no matter what stock I use; Lexmark e232


Slipping paper feed rollers is probably causing the jamming. Remove the paper tray and tip the machine back so that you can access the feed rollers from underneath. A good technique to isolate this problem is to remove the rubber feed tires, turn them inside-out and refit them. If it now works OK you need to get new feed rollers.

Error code 31 on a konica royal 1500 ''paper mishandled''.


Have you replaced the paper pick up & paper feed & paper sep. rollers? Also, have you cleaned the paper pick up clutch? The reason it works with the manual feed is that it is not used as much. Also, have you cleaned the rollers with wd-40 or simple green and did it work better, if so you need new rollers. Good Luck

Stuck paper in printer


the only solution for this is to dig it out

remove the paper feed cartridge, open the printer up and remove all corona wires, and anything that will slide out

look to see the feed rollers and try lifting on the rollers with your fingers to take any tension off of the top roller always try to remove the paper from the feed area slowly work the paper out if you still see small piece of paper try working them out with a stiff piece of index stock

avoid damaging the rubber rollers with a sharp object and by all means do not force the feed rollers they were designed to move in one direction..towards the copy area a pair of tweezers and hemostats work very well

the fact that the paper went in sideways lends me to believe you have a fed roller problem or an obstruction

once you clear the jam cean the feed rollers with soft cloth and alcohol



good luck
