SOURCE: Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer Paper feed Problem

Assuming that you are feeding the paper into the correct end of the printer :), it seems that the printer is defective, but

First unplug the printer from the wall, wait a few minutes,
and see if it resets. If that does not work, read on.

  1. Printer rollers (and sometimes head movements as well)
    are controlled by "Stepping Motors"

    Unlike an ordinary DC motor with two wires, that spins
    clockwise or counter clockwise depending on the voltage
    polarity,

    a stepping motor contains several pairs of wires, that
    are pulsed in a controlled sequence, causing the motor
    to spin in precise angular steps. Depending on the
    number of wire pairs (poles) and internal gears, the
    stepping motor can have a resolution as course as
    90 degrees, and as fine as 0.05 degrees per step,
    depending on the cost and applications.

    Linear stepping motors can even move an object in
    a straight line.

    The benefit of these stepping motors is that, unlike a
    linear servo motor, they do not need complex positional
    feed-back for precise control, they simply step as many
    times as you tell them to. Four steps left, two steps back
    .... etc.

  2. These stepping motors are in turn driven by semiconductor switches (transistors) which are
    ultimately controlled by a central processor within the printer.

    Depending on the printer model, and how sophisticated
    the printer's internal processor is, the paper and head
    movements can be either automatically controlled by
    SOFTWARE (firmware) within the printer itself, or by the device drivers installed in Windows.

    The more self-sufficient the printer is, of course, the less
    hassle and CPU overhead on your PC.

  3. When any of the components within this chain of command fail, the stepping motor will move incorrectly:

    a) Skip steps
    b) Get stuck
    c) Oscillate back and forth
    d) Spin backwards.

  4. The causes could be:

    a) One bad wire in the ribbon connecting the motor
    to its controller board.

    b) Bad motor driver transistor: Open or shorted.

    c) Bad data line from the printer's internal control
    processor to the driver transistor array.

    d) Bad processor chip, memory or firmware within
    the printer, e.g. a burned out register or firmware
    memory location.

    e) Defective internal power supply, causing everything
    else to malfunction.

    f) Bad paper position sensor

    d) Crashed control program, which is probably the
    only thing that is fixable:

    i) unplug the printer from the wall socket, wait a
    few minutes, and see if it resets.

  5. It is also remotely (theoretically) possible, that
    the Window drivers are corrupt but this is very unlikely.

  6. If you are fairly brave and want to take the printer apart, and have some electronics knowledge and a few basic instruments, probe the roller drive motor wires, and see what gives. Is one wire stuck consistently low or high ?

    Is one of the motor windings open or shorted ?

    Is one of the driver transistors fried ?

    This very much depends on your level of skill, and the test equipment you have to work with. If you don't have a decent oscilloscope you will not get far. Without a digital multimeter you will not get anywhere at all.
Also do not forget that printers are dirt cheap, less than the ink when it runs out, so this may not be worth your time and effort.

Call the manufacturer, scream blue murder, accuse them of setting your house on fire and giving your dog diarrhea ....

and see if they will send you a freebee.

Hope this explains it.
Please rate my answers.

SOURCE: mp600 pixma printer

I'm not sure if you've already checked this, but this was my issue. I, too, would try to print something and it would make a great deal of clunking noise but would then say that there was no paper and told me to load some. I went to the Canon site and before I actually went through the process of cleaning the print roller, I checked the feed switch button on the display panel. It's right below the ON/OFF button and, what do you know, it was set to feed from a paper cassette instead of the back loading tray. I pushed the button and it's now printing fine. I'm sure we must have accidentally hit the button when we were trying to turn the printer on or off quickly. Hope this does the trick! It's always nice when it's something easily fixed!

SOURCE: hp 1210 paper will not feed

Hi ihimc1, over time dust and paper fibres can cause the rollers to stick, which can result in the paper not feeding please take these steps below to clean the rollers.
Turn off the all-in-one.Unplug the power cord from the back.Remove the rear access door. Clean the rollers one at a time using a clean cloth that is slightly dampened with water. Rotate the roller to clean the entire surface. Verify that the three paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate freely.
Reinstall the rear access door and then plug the power cord back in.Turn the all-in-one back on.

SOURCE: Paper won't load. Media loaded incorrectly.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

My Brother MFC 210C Printer, Copier, Scanner isn't feeding the paper.How do I fix this?


Use a water dampened cloth to clean the pickup roller. They get residue on them over time that causes them to not grip the surface of the paper when feeding.

How can I fix a reacuring paper jam


The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.
If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):
Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Finally, turn the printer upside down and carefully shake it for 10 to 20 seconds to see if something falls out of the paper feed path. Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. If that works, then try to print again.

Pixma 150 Canon printer jams paper with one sheet or a full load of paper,...any suggestions?


This depends on where the paper jams. Does it pickup the paper and move it at all?
If it does,nt then your paper pickup roller needs a clean.
If it moves it a small way and then jams before the paper gets through the feed rollers then usually something is jammed in the printer that is obstructing the paper from feeding. It may be a small piece of paper or many other things as I have found, pencils, paper clips, coins, all sorts of things in printers.

Out of paper message, won't feed paper


The feed roller was turning but the paper wasn't moving and so I kept getting an "out of paper message." The paper was actually getting caught on a small black piece in the back of the printer. I removed the black piece and the paper start to feed fine.


Remove the back access door (it just pops out... no screwdriver required). The black guide piece (2nd from left) is about the size of my little toe after I took it out. Use a flat head screw driver to pop it out... that should leave 3 black guide pieces left. Put the access door back on the printer and the problem should be solved.

Canon MP220 printer. when i load the paper it starts to go to one side, a rustling sound then paper just gets stuck


I had same problem. Lift up Scanner section and check along white paper feed rollers with torch. I could see something between rollers and bottom roller bar. Lifted up that section of white roller with two small flat bladed screwdrivers. This revealed a " Sweet Rapper" jammed under rollers.Removed printer now ok.

The paper is jammed unable to find the manual. i just bought it.


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Misfeed when scanning documents


What you want to try it take a blank paper and on the middle of the page on front put a small ammount of rubbing alcohol on it, then enter the paper into the scanner and hold it so you jam it as it feeds. Then look at the area you placed the alcohol for the presence of some dirt, a blackish smear will normally appear on the paper, Do that 4 or 5 times and that will clean the wheels well. If it helps, then most likely you have just textured the rollers for a short period of time and they should be replaced. But the reason why you want to try that is to be sure the problem is slipping by the roller texture and not the roller drives, ( a clutch or motor). But since it sounds like you give your scanner a workout, the rollers are most likely the problem. Replace all the feed rollers and also look for a pad that presses against the feed roller. Depending on the type of scanner there will be either one roller that barely moves or a rubber pad that is called a skid or ****** pad, what they do is limit or ****** the feed of multiple sheets of paper. I would recommend replacing that , pad or stationary roller, it is important in feeding.
