    This has helped. When I stuck the envelope down, I was able to notice a small piece of paper stuck under the white plastic feeder inside. While I haven't actually managed to remove it, I must have moved it, as the printer is now feeding properly. If/when I have this problem again, I'll know the steps to take.

Kindly make sure the below points :-

1. 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, un-plug the printer and remove the paper.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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).
6. 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.
7. 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. Plug the printer back up. Take a fresh stack of letter size paper and quickly bend in an 'S' shape a few times to separate the pages. Make sure it's 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 would not fix the issue, do you get any Error Message? If Yes, let me know.

However, what i can think, the next step would to be to take apart the machine and check the rollers yourself. If you have never done this before it is best to have a repair tech to do it. Unfortunately getting a printer fixed usually costs more that replacing it.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

When i play sonic games the c button freezes the game

Well this is a problem like mine.... it seems that your c is being read as the start button like mine does. How i get mine to work is to push down on the end of the plug when it goes into the port

try weighing it down with a book or something....

but by doing this it does get annoying if the book falls cuz your console could freeze and this is what i do with mine but i need a solution to fix that, anyway hope this helps

Whatever you not hit it, kick it, smash it....unless you bought it with the guarantee of anything is covered unless it's lost or stolen warranty when you bought it! I have had mine for maybe 3-4 months now & still having problems with mine. Mine wants to freeze up on me. The last time was last weekend, & at the time I'm writing this, it has again been frozen the the past hr 1/2 +. Maybe it has something to do with weekends, not sure. But last Saturday, on my way to work mine was still acting "sick". Wierd & not sure what I did or didn't do, but all of a sudden it started working....approx. 7:30 am WIERD! If you find out what may be causing your problem maybe you might be lucky to find the end of the rainbow to technology....good luck! But again, don't smash it unless you bought the extra warranty. Better yet....! Take it back to the store & get a refund! May you have a better & safe weekend, Leesa Last weekend it took maybe 12 hrs. or so to unfreeze & believe me I wanted to smash it with my foot & I did purchase the extra warranty! Not sure if you are having the same problem. Don't destroy it....instead since mine is covered for anything except lost or stolen....please DESTROY MINE!!
