Re: Printing Fault

Remove the paper and look inside, you will see some rolelrs that pick up the paper.
Take a cloth with some soapy cleaner, like fantastic or something alont that line.
Dampen that cloth with them and clean the rollers. May have to clean them 3 or 4 times to get all the comtaminants off of the rollers.
If they still are misfeeding. run your fingertips across them and see if they have a "slick smoothe" feel to them, if so, the are wonr out and in need of replacing.

Lexmark X4550 all-in-one Paper feeds only half way then jams

I'm not Lexmark certified; however, paper motion fails are generic in nature. Paper motion fail can be a bit difficult to diagnose at a distance...
* If it jams at every sheet then check to insure there is not a bit-o-paper stuck from a previous jam.
* If it has been an issue that has been increasingly getting worse than I'd replace the pick-up roller(s)
* Lexmark's support page for your printer is below. (You can also find a service prover too)
* Parts order for your printer is also below. You can determine at the support page if your comfortable replacing pick-up rollers in that model printer.
support lexmark com Service Parts
* Frequently people tear a jammed sheet when it comes out leaving pieces behind. BAD! When you get a torn sheet in your printer insure you retrieve all the pieces. Those left behind guarantee a jam on your next try.
* Paper jams not caused by debris in the path or worn pick-up roller(s) is beyond user maintenance.

Double printing on pixma mp470

Double printing or double feed??. Double printing means document printed in 2 copies. Double feed means printer feed double paper in one moment. For double printing,please check number of copy of document in printing preference properties.
Double feed occurs when pickup roller fails to pick the paper correctly. It's usually caused by shaft of paper pick up roller which is broken. You should replace drive assembly (include pick up roller) in this case

My hp photosmart c7250 will not clear printing jam. after reseting, the rollers keep running until it times out then displays a print jam.

Sounds more like an out of paper response rather than a jamb. Make sure the pickup roller can actually catch the paper. Use a polymit to roughen the rollers slightly in the slot where the paper is contained. If you take the paper out and look down the slide that holds the paper you will see two or sometimes 3 rollers They can become shiny and fail to grab the paper. Make sure you use proper printing paper and not photocopy paper as this is the stuff that has resinous coating that causes rollers to become shiny.

To also ensure that there is not a tiny piece of paper covering the detection eye for paper jamb use a piece of stiff card and run it through the paper path with a little assistance from you pushing it while the roller turns. This will often remove any tiny bits of paper or waxy substance from the eye.

HP Deskjet 1200c will not feed paper. Fails to pick up paper from tray. If force pickup by hand can get it to start printing but moves paper in wrong direction as as positions for printing. Does not...


This sounds like a problem with the paper pick up rollers. I would suggest cleaning the rollers with a little isopropyl alcohol. Please make sure the machine is turned off when doing the cleaning. Let the rollers dry for a few minutes. If this does not work, The rollers would probably have to be replaced.

Printing stops half-way

I had exactly the same problem - seemed to fail to pick up the sheet. I tried reversing the rubber pickup, but although I think this would work in some cases, it didn't work for me. What DID work was SO simple:

Take a piece of paper and fold it in half a few times, then tape it to the bottom of the paper tray, so that when in place, it will be under the pickup roller at the back. Now load with paper. The paper will be slightly raised at the back (below the pick up roller) and the increased pressure will magically make it work like new! Don't obstruct the paper-out detection slot - otherwise it won't know when it is out of paper.
