Open the rear of the printer and turn the rollers with your fingers to make sure they are free rolling.Look in the manual for proper loading of the paper tray and try reloading the paper

Printer screen says NO PAPER FEED...when there is paper in the tray.


'No paper feed' is different from 'No Paper' : it basically means that the printer cannot 'grab' a sheet of paper to feed it!

Just remove and loosen the stack of paper from the tray and reinsert the stack making sure that the sides are not jammed hard against the guides.

ps. For good measure, also check for any remains of previously jammed/torned print outs.

Hope it helps!

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers

p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

The printer wont load the paper in anymore it will grab it on the left side but not the right


Please help me here. What model printer are you using?

Does it have multiple paper trays?

More then likley, the paper feed rollers are either worn or contaminated with paper dust and are not letting the paper be grabbed and pulled from the tray properly.

It could also be the paper pick solenoid not mechanically pushing both sides of the spring loaded tray up into the paper feed roolers. Or in the case of a true paper tray, preventing both sides of the tray from lifting with the same force.

Printer no longer feeds paper from paper tray; I tried cleaning it, it sounds like the printer is trying to grab the paper but it does not grab it.


Remove the paper tray. Use a lint-free cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) to wipe all around the black "rubberish" wheels right underneath the unit where paper tray goes. I learned that by calling Okidata.

Wont grip paper on feed, keeps 'saying' paperjam


I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.

PAPER FEED DOESNT WORK KONICA MINOLTA COLOR PRINTER


This happened to me one time after I pulled out a jammed paper the wrong way. I pulled it from the paper tray. Heard the sounds, it tried to grab the paper, but couldn't. It happened a long time ago, so I'm fuzzy on which part I tinkered with...but I recall that because I pulled the paper (backwards) from the tray, it flipped a lever/feeder/roller/thing and that 's why it wasn't grabbing the paper. If you look in the paper tray as the rollers go down to grab the paper, you'll see what's not working......sorry, lame solution.

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.

Canon Pixma Paper feed not feeding!!


Either the pickup roller needs to be replaced,(a maintenance kit) or the tray isn't pushing the paper high enough to grab. Tyr loading a few more pages in the tray and making sure the tray is seated properly. Then try replacing the roller.

Paper not feeding


Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.
