If you take it apart you'll probable see that the gear for the roller is slipping on the shaft, you can try to push it in, further on to the splines of the shaft, but I don't know how long it will last.Be careful of the clear sticker on the gear, it has marks and is used to tell position of the gear,by reading the marks on the disk on the IR opto that is on the circuit board.

    I also see alot of post about the printer printing half a page then stopping and and then it feeds the rest of the way on a print job, I would also suspect a slipping end gear, because of the opto encoder I described above, if it was slipping the paper would stop as the shaft isn't engaged on the gear anymore.

Stop Ejection of printing paper roll after printing in dot matrix printer

I assume you are printing on roll paper, but printer acts like it is printing on cut sheet paper. When finish the page, it ejects it, but it is not a page, it is a roll and the paper keeps unrolling, right? There have to be a lever that swithes between cut sheet paper and roll paper. Turn it to the oposite direction and the problem should be fixed.

Tracing paper not picking

If you mean Vellum paper, make sure that your paper type is set from your server/computer to the printer. Remember, Stock rolled paper has different physical characteristics than Vellum. Also this will aid on the paper sensor to note what type of paper you are printing on

Kodak easy share g600--paper doesn't get pick up

Try putting a taller stack of paper in the printer. As they get older, the wheels lose traction. Clean the wheels you can see with a damp Q-tip.

Re HP Laserjet 4P after inserting envelope to print, upon giving PRINT command, printer will not print and indicates PAPER JAM. However, there is no real paper jam. No problem printing regular 8 1/2 x 11...

Most likely a bad pick up roller these machines will give a jam error if the paper or envelope is not picked up. Try cleaning the roll for the tray you are having the trouble with if the condition improves you have found the problem.
Hope this helps
